Taylor McKay’s life is exploding and she’s the one that lit the match.
Losing her father a week before her thirtieth birthday shifted her world. Breaking up with her boyfriend, quitting her job and subletting her apartment to go work on a yacht for the summer struck the match. The yacht catching fire and sinking incinerated any semblance of a normal life.
She was only existing when she promised her father she’d start living. Now Taylor has to use every ounce of will to survive. Being lost at sea with billionaire Easton VanHouten is definitely a surprise, but better stranded with him than going full-on Cast Away by herself.
After all, it can't get any worse. Right?
Taylor is drifting through life, a little lost with breaking up with her longtime boyfriend and the death of her father. She finds herself working on a yacht for a summer. All her unlaid plans unravel when the boat sinks and she finds herself a castaway with the rich and famous Easton. They lean on each other in their own deserted island. They are rescued and Easton doesn’t want to be a part from Taylor but she can’t reconcile their two worlds and hides away. After some time Easton does what he can to convince Taylor they belong together.
In An Oyster Shell – I really liked this book it was a great survival romance. One of the few books I’m tempted to read again.
The Pearls – A hot millionaire stranded on an island when you’ve really got no place to be anyways. I loved the premise. It really took me by surprise. This story is very unique and was well executed.
I loved Taylor and Easton. As I read along I felt sequestered with them. The tension was palpable when they are brought back to the real world. I love Easton’s family that ends up surrounding Taylor. She goes from having no family to a family that wants to take her in no matter how much she really wants to run.
I love the romance. I love when the Hero is a strong pursuer. I really liked that he enlists his whole family to help win her over. I like the solidity they formed on the island that has a good chance of surviving in the real world.
The Sand – I really liked it.
