The fifteen year age difference between Elle Kensington, ex-patriat American executive and Emre Deniz, son of Istanbul's most successful businessmen, has not kept them from becoming fast friends as they tour Istanbul together. But the time has come for him to return to the U.S. to finish his master's degree and she has just been named CEO of the pharmaceutical company that brought her to Turkey in the first place. Elle adores her adopted country, and is alarmed to find herself falling in love with the young man who's been her impromptu guide for the last few months.
But she knows they can never be. She will return home to California within a month, leaving behind all she loves about the ancient city. In a rare fit of spontaneity, Elle has contracted with Madame Eve's OneNightStand dating service to hopefully find a way to forget the dark, handsome young man who has captured her heart. Little does she know what awaits her in the ancient recesses of the Ottoman palace turned luxury hotel under the hands of her one night stand masseur.

This short and hot book by Liz Crowe is a wonderful glimpse into the Deniz family. Ella is a strong professional woman, working for a pharmaceutical company that brings her to Istanbul where she immerses herself in her job.
Ella has come to love the city during her time in Istanbul. She meets Emre while exploring, and she finds herself with a magnetic attraction to Emre, a striking man almost 15 years her junior. Emre is determined to prove to Elle that he is more than his age and Elle is convinced that age is all that matters.
When her friends suggest Madame Evangeline's 1Night Stand dating service, she is resistant but ultimately gives in. This is a fun tie-in with a very hot scene!
When Ella finally lets go and allows herself to see the Emre for himself and what he has to offer her, you quickly find yourself rooting for them to be together. I love that she has the strength to admit when she's wrong; she allows herself to "jump" and take what she wants.
There is great secondary character development, including Ella's assistant, Caleb. This glimpse into Caleb makes Blue Cruise a must read after TURKISH DELIGHTS.
