For one navy SEAL, danger and passion are brewing in paradise
Working on a cruise ship was supposed to be the perfect distraction for chef Cady Crenshaw. Instead, it made her the perfect target. Abducted and thrown overboard into foreign waters, she has only one shot at survival…and it comes at the hands of an irresistible ally.
Navy SEAL Logan Starke's protective instincts were locked and loaded the moment he met Cady at the ship's bar. When a violent struggle to take down her captors leaves Logan and Cady stranded on a deserted island, he leaps into rescue mode. But the hot sand and the even hotter attraction between them can't be denied…and temptation could be the deadliest threat yet.
A riveting survival story where the hero and heroine don't only have to survive the savage kidnappers but also the unforgiving nature of the stranded island out there in the middle of nowhere.
This story took my breath away and had me on the edge with many dangers and threats the main characters faced during their time on the island. The tension is high as time just goes by and there is no way to escape, no way to find their way back to the civilization, no way to avoid each other and the burning attraction building between Cady and Logan.
Chef Cady Crenshaw is a tough and capable heroine who is not afraid to stand up for herself. She has sass and attitude but also sweetness and passion. She can be hard-headed yet there is a tender heart inside her that she guards with the stubborn exterior.
Navy SEAL Logan Starke knows more about survival than most. He is cool and calm under pressure, yet he is a passionate, kind, considerate man who takes care and protects those he cares about or are trusted to his care. His biggest challenge on the island is to stay professional and not to touch Cady like his heart, mind, and body are yearning to do.
The primitive surroundings make the flaming desire burning between Cady and Logan an intensely sensual game that puts them both on the edge. The heat factor is high, the sexual encounters are voluptuous, the hunger they have for each other just growing with each touch, as the devotion and admiration take root in their hearts.
Logan and Cady's fight for survival is a captivating and enthralling story. There are so many elements bringing the intensity to a new level, from the personal conflicts to the physical challenges of the island to the deathly threat of the pirates. I was glued to my kindle as every twist in the story brought a new challenge making it impossible to put the book down. The island and survival enticed me, as well as the budding relationship and the demands the environment put them under. I felt a deep connection to both Logan and Cady, even though I could not comprehend a couple of the tantrums Cady had.
A mesmerizing, intriguing, and intense story of endurance and survival in the most challenging circumstances. The allure of the attraction and desire is irresistible, even as the danger and deadly threat hide behind each and every corner
