Shipped by Angie Hockman

Between taking night classes for her MBA and her demanding day job at a cruise line, marketing manager Henley Evans barely has time for herself, let alone family, friends, or dating. But when she’s shortlisted for the promotion of her dreams, all her sacrifices finally seem worth it.

The only problem? Graeme Crawford-Collins, the remote social media manager and the bane of her existence, is also up for the position. Although they’ve never met in person, their epic email battles are the stuff of office legend.

Their boss tasks each of them with drafting a proposal on how to boost bookings in the Galápagos—best proposal wins the promotion. There’s just one catch: they have to go on a company cruise to the Galápagos Islands...together. But when the two meet on the ship, Henley is shocked to discover that the real Graeme is nothing like she imagined. As they explore the Islands together, she soon finds the line between loathing and liking thinner than a postcard.

With her career dreams in her sights and a growing attraction to the competition, Henley begins questioning her life choices. Because what’s the point of working all the time if you never actually live?

4 Stars!

Such a cute book! This is the first book from this new author and I'm a fan. Shipped is a great rom-com, weekend read. It had the elements of a book that doesn't make you put it down - humor, sweetness, chemistry and overall loveable characters. 

Henley and Graeme are characters who have chemistry from the beginning. Henley has been working her tail off and wanting to land a Director position within her cruise line company. There are two things standing in her way: her chauvinistic boss and Graeme Crawford-Collins, the social media manager, at her company. He may be handsome and sexy, but her impressions of him, has Henley determined to win the promotion over him.

Their boss sends them to the Galápagos to propose the best digital marketing plan and whoever has the best proposal wins the promotion. This trip takes a wild and fun turn for these two and they begin to figure out who they really are. And does the promotion really mean that much more than their relationship?
Again, Shipped is a quick and fun read and makes me want to head to the Galápagos right now!
