Two hot men. One deserted tropical island.

Carefree Adam Bennet comes from a long line of earthy people— gardeners, herbalists, hippies, and farmers. His grandmother taught him and his brothers to live off the land, to heal themselves, and above all, to trust their intuition about a person or situation.

Mr. Don’t-Touch-Me Wade O’Rourke wouldn’t dream of something so pedestrian as living off the land. His family is monied and formal. Taking his place in his uncle’s company is the thing to do— never mind that he hates his life, and he has reasons to hate his uncle, too.

When Wade and Adam meet on an airplane, they don’t quite hit it off. But they’re the only two survivors of a crash landing on an island paradise, they have to join forces to survive.
Will Adam take a chance on love with the seemingly straight man? Underneath Wade's business suit, which he once wore like armor against intimacy, is a hard body and a tender heart.

When love blossoms, can it survive the rescue and return to their American small town?

2.5

Mediocre

Book Cover

  • Headless torsos and/or exposed abs – how original
  • Still well-done, though

Engagement

  • Memorable after I put it down for a few hours

Likes

  • The crash happened relatively early in the book
  • The passengers were actually shown to be dead instead of the lame 'washed out to sea' trope
  • The snake scene was both hilarious and terrifying

Character Depth

  • Chest deep

Mood Upon Completion

  • Annoyed

Grammar

  • Very few/no typos

Sex Scenes

  • Decently hot

Dislikes

  • Goes on at length in the beginning about the ins and outs of plane safety - seems like blatant foreshadowing - and yet totally leaves out the crash itself. No. Just...no
  • Goes on at length about the contents of Adam's backpack on the plane - until they're on the island and need to take inventory, I'm not interested
  • The passengers were either alive and uninjured or dead with no inbetween
  • The whole 'husbands on the island but strangers when back to civilization' trope is played out
  • Goes on and on about finding long-lost brother, but the book ends before they reunite...boooooooo

Emotional Depth

  • Moderately emotional

Content Warnings

  • Abuse (emotional, one, major, past)
  • Abuse (physical, one, minor, past)
  • Character death (minor, multiple, present)

Contains food sex.

I enjoy the stranded trope, but it’s very easy to get wrong, and this author did just that for the most part.

How do all these deserted islands get coconut tree seeds?
