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.

Mmmmmm. Sizzle. Pop. Burn. Ooooh. Max and Kara light up the pages and incinerate them. These two make me want to get on a plane and make a crash landing. They make me want to rush headlong into danger and come out with the everlasting gobstopper of romances!

Ok, that was weird. But seriously, these two… wowza! I’ve read one other book by April Angel, Mr. Buff, and so I was pretty excited about Stranded Temptation. And now I am completely convinced that I am joining the fan-girl club of this author. She can write a scene to burn your pants off!

When two people who fantasize about each other regularly go on a business trip together to a very exotic location, what do you expect to happen? Well, that doesn’t happen in this book!! At least not in the way you think, and I loved that. Right away there is a huge adrenalin rush, then hotness and sexiness abound. But then there are feelings and all of that greatness that comes with it!

This book had a lot of action and danger, it was a great mix.

“Good luck trying to get out of his sexy claws. When Max Richards sinks them into someone, there’s no way of getting out.”

Max is that type of man I love. When he gets what he wants, he holds on tight. He doesn’t let her fears and insecurities about what has happened get in the way. And that was terrific.

I think if you want a quick read that will get you revved up in multiple ways, this would be an awesome choice for you. Heck, I might read it again real soon!

    I'm happy. It doesn't sound like what you would expect in a romance novel.
