Little White Lies by R.C. Matthews

Add me on Goodreads!
When attorney Madalyn Russell dumps her fiancĂ© at the altar, she temporarily escapes the scrutiny of her friends and family on her honeymoon cruise. Too bad she forgot she is assigned to dine at the “newlywed” table on the fully booked cruise. Goodbye exquisite cuisine, hello standard buffet fare. Nothing will tempt her to enter that lion’s den. Or so she thinks.

When the board of directors orders devilishly handsome Royce Spencer to seek rest alone on a cruise, he sets his sights on Madalyn and offers a deliciously indecent proposal to her dining room dilemma. He’ll pose as her husband in exchange for companionship during the cruise. Royce is a gifted liar with a great sense of humor that has everyone at the newlywed table laughing and no one suspecting the truth.

Is the opportunity to enjoy all the ship has to offer worth the little white lies they'll have to tell? What is it about Royce that makes Madalyn want to engage in a fling at the age of thirty for the first time in her life and toss her tightly held beliefs overboard? The whirlwind love affair catches them both by surprise. Is it possible that in the midst of all the little white lies, they will each discover their soul mate? And when Royce is accused of white collar crime with Madalyn as his key witness, will Madalyn finally learn that life is not always as black and white as it seems?
4 stars****

This book made me want to sign up for a cruise... and eat lots of good food! :) The cruise ship activities were very descriptive and sounded like a lot of fun.
This was a quick, romantic read and a nice choice if you're looking for something fun and flirty. Madalyn and Royce are very likable characters and the story gives us a nice HEA.
Madalyn got a case of cold feet at the altar and Royce was ordered to take some much needed R & R by his company so they both found themselves on the cruise alone. Madalyn realized a little too late that she was going to be seated with other honeymoon couples on the cruise for evening dining. Royce volunteers to pose as her husband so she doesn't have to face the honeymoon table alone. What starts out as a few little white lies quickly turns into something more.
All in all this book was entertaining and fun and gave me a few giggles... especially the disco scene... John Travolta anyone??
Also a good choice for those who like romances with older more mature characters. There are some light steamy moments but nothing too over the top...  just enough to wet your whistle!
