Product Description

Product Description

Carolina Sullivan needs a man's body bad....

Only the most gorgeous hunk will save fast-track photographer Carly Sullivan's job, but finding the right man isn't easy when you're on a ship in the middle of the Caribbean and the model you hired turns out to be a disaster.

With her hopes sinking faster than the Titanic, Carly spots the most beautiful man she's ever seen. Ford McKay swears he's a rancher from Wyoming, but Carly has her suspicions. Then all hell breaks loose in their island paradise and the sexy stranger is all that protects Carly from a hail of bullets.

Ford McKay knows that mixing business and pleasure can be murder, and he's not about to compromise his current mission for an obstinate redhead who can't forget her camera for a nanosecond. But when Carly is wounded, the rugged Navy SEAL can't just walk away.

As fate forces the two into excruciatingly close quarters, Ford finds his heart taking a tumble. Soon the straight-arrow SEAL discovers that with the right woman, going overboard can be unforgettable.

From the Paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wickedly thrilling from beginning to end. 22 April 2001
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Ford Mackay was not only easy to envisage but mouth wateringly sexy and my only complaint is that I'm not Carly. The plot moves swiftly and the action is thrilling, I could feel the heat and smell the islands and sea. I would recommend this novel to all and can't wait to see the film version that should be made.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another winning novel by Christina Skye 12 April 2001
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At sea, photographer Carly Sullivan desperately seeks a photogenic hunk to fulfill her contract with the cruise line after her model fails her. Carly and her temporary assistant and closest friend Daphne Brandon ogle all men over the age of sixteen, but find no one until they see an individual who oozes elegance.

Carly offers money to Ford McKay, but he misinterprets what she wants and refuses to bed her for even $750 an hour. Navy SEAL Ford is undercover with orders from DC to protect a Carolina Sullivan. Apparently, death threats to the governor-general of the Caribbean island Santa Marina and his family and their friends have led to the need for round the clock protection. Daphne is the daughter of the governor-general, which means the killers are probably on board too. Ford accepts Carly's modeling job even as he feels she is just a spoiled rich woman. However, as the threats to Carly and Daphne turn real, Ford reassesses his opinion of her while they fall in love.

GOING OVERBOARD is an entertaining romantic suspense romp that never slows down. The story line is filled with action and amusing encounters between Ford and Carly, a warm couple that the audience will adore. The return of a secondary player from a previous novel adds to the enjoyment of the audience. Christina Skye has written another winner.

5.0 out of 5 stars Love those Navy Seals!!! 4 Oct 2001
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This is the first book I've read by Ms. Skye. The story flowed rapidly and I thoroughly enjoyed the dialog between Carly and McKay, no pretense, tell it just like it is!! Gives you lots of heart gulping moments and boy can Ms. Skye describe kissing!! The secondary characters, Daphne and Izzy, fit in like gloves. The ending was brilliant. I don't want to describe the ending because it would ruin the surprise. This book was full of adventure, romance and people you'd like to hear more about. I've just finished reading Susanne Brockmann's 3 books which also was about Navy Seals. These two writers are fantastic!!

1.0 out of 5 stars I didn't enjoy the heroine, and I wanted it to be over. 28 Nov 2008
By Jane - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Nigel is governor of Santa Marina. He suspects bad guys may do harm to him, his daughter Daphne and her friend Carly. He hires Ford a Navy SEAL to watch over Carly, and he hires a local police chief to watch over Daphne. Carly is a photographer filming commercials on a cruise ship. The wrong model was hired, and she uses Ford as a substitute model. She doesn't know that Ford is there to watch over her. She thinks Ford is a rancher from Wyoming. Bad guys follow and shoot at Carly and Daphne. Ford is there to protect them.

This book was not "outrageous fun" as described on the cover. Nothing surprised or delighted me. I wasn't drawn to Carly and had trouble identifying with her. She lost one account doing one commercial and grieved as if her life were over. My gosh, there are other jobs out there, especially for someone as talented as she is. She also got angry too frequently and easily. Several scenes bothered me. They were too contrived and predictable to be entertaining. For example, when Carly first meets Ford, she offers him $500 for an hour's work. She says it in a way that implies she is buying sex, when in fact she needs a model for the commercial. His reaction and then her reaction creates conflict, with Carly then being angry and furiously stomping away. Another example is Carly asking him several times, who he was, why he was there, etc. Other than saying he was from Wyoming (which was true prior to joining the Navy), he just stayed silent saying nothing. Later when she guesses that he is military, she is furious saying he lied to her, and stomps away. The way I see it, he never lied, he just never told. This was conflict due to her inaccurate assumptions. I don't enjoy this type of conflict. I was also annoyed that Carly went to the kidnappers all alone with no weapons or tracking devices, thinking she could help, but all she did was get kidnapped as well. This is stupidity. Aside from Carly, I was a little confused about the bad guys. By the end of the book, I still didn't know much about what they were planning. I would have liked a few more details about that. Other parts of the story were ok. Ford was good.

Story length: 342 pages. Sexual language: mild. Number of sex scenes: 3. Length of sex scenes: 0.4, 1.9 and 3.4 pages. Total number of sex scene pages: 5.7. Setting: current day mostly in the Caribbean, with a little in the U.S. and Puerto Rico. Copyright: 2001. Genre: contemporary romance with some suspense.

2.0 out of 5 stars I've read much better 17 Jan 2003
By A Customer - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The on-line reviews of this Navy seal story looked good. I was not impressed. This is the first from Christina Syke that I have read. I found myself getting lost and having to re-read text to see who was talking. At one point I thought the characters were still in the hotel when further on I realized they moved to the car. I've ready many ho-hum stories but rarely with such choppy dialog. With so many other books on my "to read" list, I felt this book a waste of time.
For a good romantic Navy SEAL series, try Suzanne Brockmann's Over the Edge, Out of Control and Into the Night!

5.0 out of 5 stars Another Winner ! 3 May 2001
By MaryannJr - Published on
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I fell for Christina Skye after '2000 Kisses' so I bought 'Going Overboard' automatically. I knew it was a book I would read and enjoy... and boy, was I right ! Ms. Skye's charactres always seem SO vibrant and real, you almost feel like you could pick up the phone and call them. In 'Overboard', Carly and Mc Kay were no exception. Carly is the workaholic photographer haunted by the similarities to her deceased mother that she is only now discovering in herself. Mc Kay is the too-gorgeous-to-be-true hunk who bails her out of a jam professionally, and then risks his life to protect her when some slimey Russians take greed and revenge too far. Of course, being a Navy SEAL helps.
As usual, the course of true love is anything but smooth, and the pair find themselves caught in the middle of a dangerous swirl of murder and deception. Basically, this book has everything. Looking for romance? Got it. Mystery? Check. Side-splitting dialogue and sharp witted sexual tension? Bingo.
This book is everything we buy romantic suspense for. Don't wait. Click on the 'order' icon now. You won't regret it.
Note to Ms. Skye . . . any chance of catching up with Daphne Brandon in future books ?We would love to see wht her future holds =:)
