Publisher's Summary

Stuart Jenner's job is high stress, high stakes, and everything he's strived for. So why, when the apex of his career is within reach, does he stumble? At his doctor's insistence, he books a privately chartered yacht to sail around the Whitsundays for two weeks of sun, surf, and sex. When his friend-with-benefits bails on him at the last minute, Stuart decides to go alone.

Foster Knight left the rat race behind six years ago, bought a yacht, and now calls the Great Barrier Reef his home. Sailing tourists around tropical waters is all in a day's work, and he's never been happier. When his next client arrives alone, the two-week charter will be the most private job he's ever had.

Foster can see how stressed and exhausted Stuart is, and he promises him extensive rest and relaxation. Stuart slowly realizes his original plan for two weeks of sun, surf, and sex might not be lost yet. Confined to a yacht, isolated by aqua-colored oceans and the sweltering sun, Stuart and Foster are about to find out just how hot the tropics can get.

Contains mature themes.

Sail Away with Foster and Stuart :)

This was a fabulous audiobook narrated by Antony Ferguson. Private Charter was one of the earliest books that I read by N.R. Walker and I love Stuart and Foster. It was a nice and exciting trip on Stuart's sailboat as I escaped for a short trip around Australia :)

Ok...

I don’t like to slaughter a story... but this book had barely any story between the adult encounters.
Only reason I didn’t DNF this, I love the narrators voice.

enjoyed it

📖 Story comment: Story had an easy pace and was relatively low on drama - I felt Stuart's stress and the change in him after the two-weeks of quiet. The characters are likeable with good chemistry and the story vividly captures the beauty of Queensland. It just all wrapped up a little to quickly for me - I would have liked a little more "storm" action.

🎧 Narrator comment: I enjoyed Antony Ferguson's narration and think he has done a good job narrating Private Charter. I had no problem distinguishing characters or feeling the emotions of the story.

I love this perfect novel

Great story best written. Good humor. Codgerly yet smooth captain. Modern knight, very. Make that two modern knights. Wayward and incorrigible flirt more adorable than obnoxious, impeccably timed. Steamy and realistic sex. Great low angst emo well played. The best travelogue bits ever. I was there.

I listened to it twice in 24 hours and I want to hear it again. Perfect narration goes without saying. I give it ten points it's that far above the rest.

Fantastic

Just finished listening to 'Private Charter'. As an avid sailor living in Cairns, listening to this was outstanding :). A great story, and I can vouch, set in an amazing place.

The narrator did me In

Although the narrator has a pleasant voice .. his pace never changed . sex scene and the description of what was for dinner were of equal enthusiasm and pitch.
The author spent way too much time describing every meal - but the dialogue was even and believable and the romance was sweet. Skipped chapters 12-16 and just went to the end .

Very steamy and romantic❤️

I enjoyed the book when I read it and was excited when the audio book came out. NR Walker is one of my favorite authors and I’ve never been disappointed after finishing one of her books.

I liked both of the MCs in this book. They were flawed and real and very relatable people. I was really invested in how their relationship progressed and a little stressed during the drama parts.

The narrator’s performance was awesome. He made me laugh(you could hear the humor in his voice) and cry and he swept me right into the story. I never felt that he was just reading the book. He put all of the emotions needed into it.

All in all, this was a great read-very steamy and very romantic. ❤️

It was ok

Aspects of this book were nice, but others were a bit slow and dragging. All a bit tepid and doesn’t grab you by the heart or drag you into the story as you would hope.

Smooth Sailing

Quaint enjoyable drama, well written, well planned, but narrated by someone who you could imagine reading the news! Humour, perfect mental and physical connection and sadness, the true elements of love. Well worth the voyage.

Lovely

The story was very sweet and everything I expected.
Sadly the narration was a bit robotic. The narrator had one Aussie accent he used for both characters, so at times it was hard to figure out whose head we were in.

Hot and passionate

I love a good close proximity story and NR steams up the pages with this one. Stuart and Foster are drawn together and the heat factor is sizzling.  This story is so memorable purely for the connection between the main characters and how perfect they are for each other.  The HEA is simply perfect and is one of those long lasting heartwarmers that lasts and lasts.
Anony Ferguson does a good job with the audio narration, bringing the longing and lust out in voice.
