"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 wanted her to know this wasn’t just about sex for me. This was about trusting me to keep her safe. This was about standing against survival side by side. This was about becoming a team – more than a team – soul-mates.”
I absolutely LOVED everything about this book. Right from the start, I was pulled into the story and couldn’t read fast enough. Then, when I finished, I didn’t want it to be over!
Stranded on a island, this is a story about 4 people leaning on each other to survive; carving out happiness in the wilderness. And ultimately, two people finding their other half in each other among the chaos. Stripped down to basic instincts, the true meaning of love is revealed.
This story made me FEEL everything. My heart broke, I cried, and then I felt so much joy. The ending was perfection. The bond that is formed between the characters was beautiful.
This was my first Pepper Winters book, but it won’t be my last.
