Stranded together, their passions will run wild.
Kara has a deep dislike for her boss, Max. She also wants him so badly it’s making her nuts. He’s a workaholic, a robot man. And he’s never shown the least bit of interest in her or anything else that wasn’t recorded in the corporate minutes. But when their plane crashes on the way to a meeting, leaving them stranded on a deserted island…just the two of them, all alone with all that ocean around them…Kara decides it’s time to start living. And by living, she means using Max for all the hot sex she’s been denied.
Max wants Kara—has wanted her for a long time. Unable to come out and cross the line between professional and personal, he makes her accompany him on business trips just to have her around. When they crash land and Kara shows him how much she wants him, he decides to quit being so professional and take the woman of his dreams. After all, what happens in the middle of nowhere, stays in the middle of nowhere. Until they’re rescued.
Back in the real world, things aren’t as easy. Kara is afraid to start a relationship with a man who completely ignored her until she took off her clothes, and Max is afraid she’ll never be able to trust him. But when someone makes it clear that Kara’s in danger, Max has more to protect than Kara’s feelings. And now that he has her, he’s not about to let her go.
My Book Review:
Kara has this love, hate thing going on for her boss Max. While Max may have sex appeal and be easy on the eyes, Kara thinks he is an insufferable workaholic and refers to him to as "Robot Man." After working five years as an accountant in Max's company, Kara has had enough, she has no social life let alone any sex life since she's been at his beck and call, and is ready to quit. And to make matters worse, Kara has to cancel her thirtieth birthday cruise vacation with best friend Meghan to accompany Max on a business trip to South America.
Max has been attracted to Kara since the first day she walked into his office. But he won't cross the line between professional and personal, even though he desires her. So to satisfy some of his need for her, he makes sure she is at his beck and call, accompanying him on every business trip.
When their plane has trouble and makes an unexpected crash landing on a deserted island, they can't fight the attraction for each other any longer, their chemistry is akin to the scorching tropical sun. But when they are rescued and return to the real world, will the time that they shared on the island lead to something more, or will it go back to business as usual at the office?
Stranded Temptation is one hell of a steamy island romp in the sand kind of read! Author April Angel weaves a sexy tale of romance and desire that is simply scorching, while providing an underlying plot of intrigue and suspense that keeps the reader turning the page.
Seriously, who doesn't like the fantasy of two passionate people trapped on a deserted island filled with pent up attraction and sizzling chemistry? Add in the mixture of intrigue and suspense of life or death trouble, and you have a captivating erotic romantic suspense story that will keep your heart beating fast and furious!
I loved following Kara and Max's journey as their love story unfolded. Kara is a sassy little spit fire, strong-willed and self-assured, she knows what she wants and goes after it ... and she wants Max! Max, oh Max ... you're my kind of man ... sweet, sexy, confident, sincere and businesslike ... he is simply swoon worthy.
Stranded Temptation is one hot little entertaining novella that has it all: engaging characters; witty dialogue and steamy interactions; a richly descriptive tropical deserted island setting; and a captivating storyline that mixes sex with suspense, can you ask for anything more? Stranded Temptation is simply erotic romance at its finest!
