The romantic tale part comes in the form of Juanita, daughter of a boat owner who brings 'putas' (prostitutes) to the island for use of prison guards and some of the prisoners who are able to afford it. Christopher meets and forms a relationship with Juanita resulting in their planning to marry if he can escape from the island and return home to the US.
If you can ignore all the errors, the story is not bad. For this many 5 star reviews, clearly many readers are totally undiscerning or have no real knowledge of English. Frequent misuse of a possessive apostrophe is an irritation. Frequent simple errors such as misplaced commas, words missing, or incorrect word usage simply makes it clear that no professional editing was done - or the editor was somebody who was not an English major, not a professional editor or publisher, or not at all discerning.
Think I'm exaggerating? Here's a sample from where I became irritated enough to start marking. Note for the authors, if you're smart, you'll take this and at least correct these errors, if not go back and read from the beginning and fix all the many other errors. I know, errors happen to all of us, non are perfect, but this many? Really?
If you don't see the errors in all these, you are clearly not an English major, likely not even an English minor, and absolutely not discerning.

Redemption’s Warrior by Jennifer Morse is a profound tale of spiritual belief and young love, and how it prevails despite the efforts of those around them to prevent it. The author takes readers deep inside the spirit world in a story that is combines elements of the real effortlessly with the metaphysical. While it gets off to a weak start, providing information that would be better revealed later in the story, and ends with no explanation of how Juanita survived the hurricane, it is nonetheless a compelling story that is very enjoyable.
