Here’s a tip: never trust a jackass in preppy clothing.
The phrase “trust me” should have been my first clue to hightail it out the door, but hindsight is always 20/20.
So there I was, on a stage with two other men, being asked ridiculous questions by a woman I couldn’t see, but whose voice made my pants tighten—and not around my ankles.
Before I knew what was happening, I’d signed up for six weeks in paradise, isolated on an island for forty-two days with a complete stranger. And when I finally laid eyes on the sexy brunette who belonged to that voice, a part of me thought this wouldn’t be so bad.
I’ve always been a levelheaded guy. I am a successful, smart, and shrewd business man. But that was when I was listening to the head above my shoulders. Once the blood traveled south, I always ran into trouble.
She called me Mr. Wrong, and that was fine with me.
Lesson learned: lust always trumps logic.
Let me start by saying that this book has it all…. Hot guy √ Hot guy has an accent √ Gorgeous woman √ Gorgeous woman in trouble √ Secluded island √ AMAZING sexy times √
^^^see, I told you! Jude and Brae are tossed together as part of a social experiment and the fun begins there.
“…the on stage kiss he planted on me made my insides feel like I was on a wold roller coaster ride – one we were now on together.”
The physical attraction was there from the beginning but the rest took some more time. I love how they tease each other and play off of their situation. Brae looks on the bright side of things and tries to stay positive. Jude takes a little longer to get used to it and pushes Brae’s buttons whenever he can
“Brae Daniels was one of the most complicated when I’d ever met. But, being the man I was, I loved a challenge”
Going in neither wants forever, they are there for completely different reasons and must learn to work together to come out on the other side. It was a slow burn waiting for them to come together, but it was perfect. I can’t imagine what goes through their heads, after all, they have all the time in the world right now – I’d be a mess!
“Jude was the only man who could annoy me and turn me on in the same breath.”
The further into the story you get the more you will fall in love with Jude and Brae. Their personalities are so fitting of one another, they are not over the top in any aspect. They could have communicated a little bit better in my opinion but it just added to the angst.
“I didn’t merely need to be inside her; I needed to mark her, take her, and possess her in every way.”
Jude and Brae are perfect for each other and I can’t wait for you to meet them!!
When two people end up together for an unconventional reason anything can happen.
