    Favorite uote Never once had she encountered a stranger's erection and become weak kneed with lust Until nowHow can I resist a book where a cruise ship chef and a Navy SEAL get kidnapped and then stranded on a deserted island?? This book is fun although the SEAL did get on my nerves now and again Let me set it upCady is our chef and in need to have a uiet and nice night out She steps out of her comfort zone dons a very sexy dress and has a drink at the cruise ship bar once she is off work It is here she spies our hero Logan He injured his knee while overseas a few weeks ago and is off duty at the moment He was initially hired to be the former president's daughter's bodyguard on this cruise but she cancelled at the last minute Logan figures he will keep his ticket and a vacation to Tahiti won't be a bad way to spend a few days He eyes Cady at the bar and they have instant chemistry They spark up a conversation which leads to dancing andbonersAnd all of this leads to them making out in the hallway outside her room But it's time for the boners to go back into hiding as Logan gets hit over the head by a few bad men and thrown overboard Meanwhile they put a bag around Cady's head and put her into a little boat and start to drive away They think they are kidnapping the president's daughter because Cady looks similar to her and Cady is terrifiedLogan wakes up underwater and fights to get to the boat He was Logan Nathaniel Starke He didn't uit He didn't sink He didn't dieA lot happens long story short Logan and Cady end up washed up on a deserted island Not knowing if the bad guys will find them or the good guys will rescue them Logan and Cady have to find water and food and deal with the dangers on the island Oh and bonersI think this author writes well done action scenes From the attack on the cruise ship to washing up on the island to fending off sharks and poisonous thingsit's an exciting book It allows Logan to show off all of his Navy SEAL survival skills which definitely helps them And although Cady feels inadeuate at first since Logan knows how to stay so calm and all Cady wants to do is cry her knowing the native food in the area helps them gather supplies and which food is not good to eatThese two have good chemistry from the start but not bathing for days on end and having sand in your no no places doesn't really lead to sexy times But once you have a good covewaterfall bath it's on I did get a little annoyed with Logan He feels so protective over Cady and feels it would be ethically wrong to cross the physical relationship boundary with her Once Cady finally convinces him that he was never hired to protect her it just sort of fell in his lap they start something up But after every kiss or making out session he starts with the apologies and how wrong it was etc Just give Cady some orgasms and enjoy yourself dude GoodnessI wanted Logan to lighten up Otherwise fun readGrade B

    This is a fabulous castaways story Cruise ship chef Cady thought she was just heading for a night of pleasure in the arms of the hot guy she picked up in the bar The last thing she expected was to be mistaken for the former First Daughter he was supposed to be protecting and kidnapped on the high seas Cady isn’t the woman he was sworn to protect but it’s his fault she’s been taken He’s got to go after her and given that his other choice is drowning in the South Pacific Logan starts swimming A twist of fate sees them escape the kidnappers but wind up stranded on a deserted island with no way to know if they’ve even been missedWhat follows is a slightly harrowing story of survival from shark bites to stonefish stings as the determined pair try to survive and try to fight their own attraction to each other at the same time Nothing about the realities of being stranded in such a situation is glossed over from injuries and illness to the ever present dangers of starvation and dehydration yet somehow the story doesn’t dwell on them too much It’s a beautifully balanced mix of romance and realityThis is an interracial romance with Cady being mistaken for a First Daughter named Maya O’Brien who is pretty clearly a standin for Malia Obama Cady reacts so realistically to getting stranded on a deserted island I found myself really wincing along with her as she momentarily despaired On the other hand if you’re going to get castaway you’d definitely want a man like Logan to be stranded with Tough and capable he still didn’t insist on doing everything himself instead challenging Cady to be his partner in every sense of the word Even though there were moments in the story where I wondered how everything could possibly turn out all right for them in the end Susan Cliff masterfully wove together threads from the storyline to tie up all the loose ends and give her couple a totally believable happy endingIf you’ve ever dreamed about being cast away on a deserted island with a sexy Navy SEAL for company or if you’re a lover of interracial romances you’ll definitely want to give this one a goFive starsDisclaimer I received a copy of this book for review through NetGalley

    Good book though a little different than the romantic suspense that I am used to The parts I considered suspense happened at the beginning and the end with the middle being a very good survival story Logan is onboard a cruise ship near Tahiti where he was supposed to be acting as a bodyguard However the client canceled and he decided to take the trip anyway He is recovering from an injury received on duty and looks forward to a little rest and relaxation He also wouldn't mind a little female companionshipCady is a chef on the cruise ship She took the job as a distraction after her ex cheated on her She is normally a very cautious person but she picks this night to step outside her comfort zone and sets her sights on Logan Some conversation and a couple of dances later the sparks fly between them and they head for his cabin That's when things go haywire in a big way Logan is attacked and thrown overboard and Cady has a bag thrown over her head and is taken off the ship onto a raftI loved how Logan's instincts and training kick in even when he's injured and dazed It doesn't take him long to decide that the only course of action is to swim after the kidnappers and save Cady The action was intense as Logan worked to get them safely off the boat only to find themselves floating helplessly in the middle of the ocean The description of their time on the raft was so vivid that I could almost feel the sun's heat myself The scene with the shark was terrifying and realistic I found myself wondering how much they could take before finding landI enjoyed the development of their relationship as it progressed under such challenging circumstances Cady is understandably freaked out at the beginning She is so intent on avoiding risk in her life that she has no idea how to handle their circumstances Logan thanks to his training is cool under pressure and knows how to keep them alive Once Cady breaks free of her panic I loved seeing her rise to the challenges that Logan gave her The two of them have to work together to survive but it isn't always easy There are some terrific scenes of the two of them butting heads as Cady stands up to some of Logan's caveman moments Logan's protectiveness can be a little excessive intensified by some things that happened during his most recent mission with the SEALs His personal code of conduct tells him that giving in to the attraction between him and Cady would be wrong while he is responsible for her safety Cady's fear of risk freuently causes her to accuse Logan of purposely doing dangerous things when he's only trying to take care of them or find a way off the island All the while the heat between them continues to build until they can no longer resist it Those scenes are intense and the connection between them is far deeper than either expectsAll the time Logan and Cady are on the island they are on the lookout for planes or boats that could provide a rescue for them They also fear that the men who kidnapped Cady could track them down When that happens they once again have to fight for their lives Thankfully Cady has changed a lot in the last six weeks and the outcome this time is different though no less intense I enjoyed their arrival back in civilization and had to laugh at their dinner choices for their first meal off the island They still have some things to work out before they have the future that each of them dreamed of I really enjoyed the ending with its two unexpected events I can't wait to read the next book in the series

    I LOVE this type of story the one time she goes against type and BOOMThe survival part reminds me of the old Linda Howard airplane crash survival book The push pull to acceptance of their love was great I wish I could read about this couple

  6. Books and Spoons Books and Spoons says:

    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 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 Four Spoons with a teaspoon on the side

    Risk averse chef by trade Cady Crenshaw does something completely uncharacteristic of herself she convinces herself that she wants to have a one night stand After all the best way to get over someone is to get underneath someone else And that someone else is named Logan Starke Thank You Universe A hot Navy Seal that's been on the radar for many of the single woman on board the cruise ship They meet and talk and the signals are very clear as in let's take this back to my cabinThey leave the onboard club together with every intention of slowly getting to know each other better in the biblical sense Once they arrive at Logan's door they're attacked by unknown masked men Logan is knocked on the head with a blunt object and thrown overboard and Cady is tied up and tossed into an awaiting raft What the kidnappers don't count on is a very resilient Navy Seal In order to save Cady Logan must first save himself Though groggy and disoriented Logan knows his greatest chance of survival is to follow the kidnappersSurviving the ambush is just the first step of their arduous journey Navigating their day to day survival is truly the beginning of their adventure together Each day they survive brings them hope that they can find a way back to civilization without losing their lives or their hearts ARC received courtesy of Netgalley Harleuin

    Cady is looking for a distraction while working as a chef on a cruise ship She had her hear broken and is working on mending that and after meeting the gorgeous Logan Strake who is a navy seal might be the perfect distraction Last thing she would've expected was to be kidnapped and saved by Logan only to be stranded on a deserted island I will admit as cheesy as the cover looks I really like it Its pretty much what drawn me to check this book out in the first place You know what this was a pretty great book There was plenty going on in this book to keep me until the then The endless amount of dangers that can happen to this duo was keeping at the edge of my seat wondering whats next for the two what else could possibly go wrong? and what could go wrong did go wrong If it wasn't that there was that ever present attraction between the two and Logans stubbornness making that distance It was enjoyable learning about the two and seeing how they worked together and it was just an overall great book I really enjoyed it

  9. Shane Shane says:

    I really enjoyed this one from start to finish It felt like I was reading a modern day version of the Blue Lagoon but with a lot flavor and heat And the main characters are way interesting than the movie stars I loved Cady's knowledge as a chef and all she offered to the story not only with food but her cautious personality is something I can relate to and I liked how fierce and unafraid she was of speaking her mind Logan's military background made him intriguing He had experienced so much in war and his strength and protectiveness were admirable even though sometimes it made me cringe along with Cady when he would dive into danger I wouldn't say the story was suspenseful or action packed through and through but there were some thrilling moments not only involving dangerous people but the main characters' time on the island had its share of crazy And their moments of vulnerability were both entertaining and frustratingOverall great premise wonderful writing that's fluid and fast Both characters got on my nerves in little ways but they still made me laugh and sympathize with them too And I'm happy that by the end of the story they just let it all go and trust in each other Another thing I have to mention is the setting It was described subtly but nicely It was as if I could smell the salty air taste the seafood and bathe in the waterfall along with them It's just a good story that will certainly warm up your cold nights I'm looking forward to learning about Logan's comrades as the series progresses
