Ten hours later, she and the man woke up on a deserted island, with no recollection as to how they got there. Bianca has no idea what is going on and her attraction to the man is the only thing that is keeping her fear at bay.
The night ended like every other night...Jakob Bradley, wanted nothing to do with the strange woman he had been imprisoned on the island with. He was more concerned in figuring out why they had been put on the island and how they could get off. He didn’t care that as the days went by he was starting to enjoy her company more and more.
But was everything as it seemed?Bianca and Jakob find themselves trying to figure out how they may be connected, but as they grow closer, secrets start being revealed that may destroy everything they thought they knew about each other and their budding love.

Quickie Review

I have mixed feelings about this book. I liked the story line, and that’s what kept me reading, but I could not stand the characters.

I’m not sure how I would manage being stuck on an island with someone I don’t know.  And this is where we find Bianca.  She wants to know who put them there and has to decide if she can trust Jakob.  And of course there is sex because we all have needs, and sometimes the hottie you’re stuck with is the best option for that.

I didn’t care for Bianca or Jakob really.  They both seem like flat characters, there isn’t much dimension to them. And they annoyed the hell out of me most of the time.

Even with that being said I’ll continue the series, because like I said the plot hooked me. I need to know what’s going to happen next. Even if I want to beat the characters over the head with a stick.
