Format: Paperback
It is the popular fantasy among many, to be stranded on a deserted island with a movie star. My personal favorite would be Harrison Ford, but it is likely to never happen. "Dessert Island" addresses this fantasy in a unique and humorous way. If you were stranded on a desert island, who would you want to be there with, and wouldn't you dream of desserts too? What would happen if you got sick? If it was that time of the month? If there was no water? Neil addresses all of these points and more.

Kee is the assistant to a film star, aboard a yacht where a wrap party is taking place. Her boss, also her lifetime friend, has the hots for her co-star Jack Conway. He's there on the yacht too, but is trying to ignore her come-ons. Kee flinches with embarrassment for Darcy and tries to stay in the shadows, avoiding the limelight. She would have been fine if the wind hadn't blown her dress up to a torch and caught it on fire. She would have been okay if anyone had noticed her before she decided jumping into the ocean was the only way to put out the flames. Someone did notice her jumping overboard and he jumped in after her. They would have been fine if only he'd notified someone about what was happening. No one noticed, and the yacht sailed on without them.

Making it to the tiny island was no easy task, and calling it an island is a stretch. Basically, the two landed on a rock in the ocean. How will they survive? When will they be rescued? And what exactly does one do to pass the time with a hunky movie star? When you are quite tall, slightly overweight and have low self-esteem, it isn't all flirting and flaunting. Through self-preservation, eating raw fish, a lack of cigarettes and bouts with fever, Jack and Kee come to know each other for so much more than their surface image.

I really enjoyed this story if you like Susan Philips style of funny banter between the H/h then you're going to love this story. There is lots of action as the couple save themselves from a series of crazy adventures. There is only a couple kisses but there is tons of chemistry and it really never felt like I was missing anything because there weren't any explicit sexy scenes (no sexy scenes at all) but lots of cuddling on a rock bed on their tiny island.
Great story!

A well written if slight romantic adventure similar in theme to the film "Romancing the Stone." I bought it on the basis of enjoying the free sample, and I am glad I did.

OMGosh, what a hoot! This book was so good. What would you do if stranded on an island with a hunky guy? This book fills in the blanks and more. What ever I paid for the book was WELL worth it. M.Margaret Neil really kept the story going with NO boring parts. The quick one-liners were an added bonus.
