Book Review || Island Escape

Island Escape (The Island #0.5)


 Luxury yacht, tropical seas, babes in bikinis…dream job, right? Wrong. The passengers are rich jerks who treat the crew like garbage, when they aren’t pretending we’re their whores. The best day was when that cokehead heiress Kalina tried to fire me just for doing my job. I swore I’d never go back home to my parents and their crazy fundamentalist ranch in the desert, but nothing could be worse than this.

And then the pirates attack.


 Luxury yacht, tropical seas, billionaire boyfriend…dream trip, right? Wrong. After catching my man getting “extra services” from the maid, I know I’m the laughing stock of passengers and crew. Every time I lay eyes on that quiet, handsome deckhand Adam, I can feel him judging me. I want to die, and when the pirates show up, I think I’m going to.

But Adam… he saves me. Now we’re alone together on a lifeboat in the open ocean. Adam thinks we don’t have a chance, but thanks to him, we’ve made it this far.

And then, in the distance, I spot an island…

My thoughts:

This book was very interesting. It a great start to the series. One minute you are on a yacht, living the dream and then the next you are find yourself on an deserted island. The evolution of the character was my favorite part of the book. When I first met Kalina, I wanted to knock some sense into her. She was such a spoiled princess. It made me almost not want to read the book. I was so angry with her. As the story progressed my hatred for her started to die down. She actually became a very pleasant person. She learned that there is more to life then money, s*x, drugs, and alcohol. She learned to care for someone else besides herself. Adam, on the other hand, was my favorite character from the beginning. He wasn’t going to take bull from anyone. If it wasn’t for him, they would have never survived the first night.

Overall, this book was great. I couldn’t put it down that I read it all in about two days. The writing is great. I loved every moment of the book. I can’t wait to read the rest of the series.
