"Instincts are what keep us safe from fate. Ignoring them can change your life forever."
Fame and fortune arrived overnight and after months on the road with her singing tour, all Estelle craves is peace. Tired and ready for paradise, she travels to Fiji to recuperate.
Stubborn and surly, Galloway is avoided by most--which is exactly the way he likes it. However, he's done spending his life in regret and hopes to find redemption in the tropical wilderness.
Together, they board the flight that changes their fate forever. Crash landing on a deserted island, they not only have to figure out how to survive with no skills and daily dangers--learning how to fish, find water, and build shelter--but also inherit two children who look to them to keep them alive.
However, staying alive might be the least of Galloway and Estelle's problems. As days creep to months and rescue doesn't find them, their desire for each other ignites.
They started as strangers.
They grew to be friends.
They fought the desire to be lovers.
Lust can be the most beautiful thing. Love the most rewarding. But not on an island where life hangs by a thread and giving into temptation can kill you.
Can they survive being forgotten or will love be their ultimate undoing?
I love all her books but this could be my favorite.
First book I've read by Pepper and I was blown away! I've never read a book that made me want to cry, want to scream and dance while reading! In my next life, I want a more simplistic lifestyle similar to Estelle's and G's the second time around. Thank you Pepper for your imagination, inspiration and journey into the lives of two loving characters. I plan on reading more of Peppers books!
Totally island wrecked me!
I promised a review for an Advanced Copy... I will admit to being so excited for this book! I have read everything out by this author. Her dark romance literally had me spellbound crying, screaming, and holding my breath! This is not a dark romance, but a contemporary romance about a woman not looking at the messages screaming at her to change her course. There aren't enough words to say read this! I'm not a great writer, but this should be a must read. It was so good!
Estelle just found fame as an singer/songwriter and is looking forward to going home after a long time on the road performing on tour. She is totally unused to her life that recently changed so much. She is trying to board a flight home. Everything that could go wrong for her at check-in did. She ignores those signs when everything in her is screaming don't go.
Galloway has been studying under one of the best architects that specializes in what he wants to build. He believes he doesn't deserve love or redemption.
This book makes you think how would you feel if your entire existence was stripped from you. What if your whole world came down to 3 strangers who are broken, but become your everything. Children who depend on you to help them cope. How are you gonna teach them live?
I have to say even though this book wasn't classified as dark I still had the moments when I cried and wanted to throw my kindle against the wall. Pepper Winters is a genius of this type of writing. She is the master of writing those moments that make you hold your breath. From that first kiss which burned up the page to the realization of what if I try but in the end I am rejected, or if the worst you can imagine happens.
These characters had to find ways to support their lives. What they feel is their self-worth is taken away, and they have to redefine what it means to them. G needing love and so unsure of his worthiness. Estelle needing him and is so sure she will disappoint him. They became a family by necessity not in a traditional way. You can't help but love all of these characters. You can't help but feel their heartache and grief, but you also feel their joy as they figure out a way to survive.
I should have known this book would leave me island-wrecked... It was a book I couldn't put down... Winters is masterful. This author can't write fast enough for me!
