I had a moment of nostalgia when I was in the middle of this story because it reminded me of the first book, Lost in Kakadu, I lovingly devoured by this author and I haven't looked back since. I love a stirring adventure romance in an exotic location and I don't read them as much as I'd like.
Lily has come to the Mexican jungle to discover the secrets her father kept from the family until his journal and some photos were discovered of time in his life he never spoke about. Carter is using the newly discovered Mayan temple as his chance to discover that elusive picture that will skyrocket his career. With one mishap after another, the pair are lost and running through their lives in the Mexican jungle and relying on Lily's camping experiences from back home to survive.
I enjoyed this pair and liked getting the story in alternating points of view. Carter is older and has a troubling past that he just wants to forget about so he travels and keeps to himself until Lily bursts into his life and her forceful nature won't allow him to stay aloof and reticent. He tries to bow out, but she won't let him. And, Lily, Carter well-named her 'Tiger Lily'. She is stubborn and forceful and this gets the pair of them into worse situations. Though, to be fair, her ability is what keeps them alive and her stubbornness keeps her going when things are looking pretty bleak.
The romance worked with how they had to focus mainly on staying alive, but slowly the attraction built and deep in the story, they pulled out their feelings, recognized them and fell naturally together as a pair. Okay, there might have been a heated moment when Lily got fired up after misreading a situation then getting hurt and angry, but it resolved when her temper cooled and she let Carter explain. This reminds me- I loved their snark and banter that really worked for their deplorable circumstances.
The jungle setting, situations, survival techniques, dangerous, emotional reactions of the characters, and the unforeseen circumstances all came together to make for a tense, well-paced, action-filled story that kept me flipping pages and not wanting to put the story aside. It was an extremely satisfying read and I didn't want it to end. It read fast, but wasn't lacking.
What really got me excited was the prospect that there will be more romance adventures for an all new couple in an all new location for the next book. Meanwhile, I recommend adventure romance lovers grab Out of Reach and get caught up for book two.
Lily Bennett has travelled to Mexico after the death of her father to search for answers after she finds a suitcase with a journal and what appears to be a secret life before he became a dairy farmer in Montana and this all comes about after an ancient stone structure is discovered by archaeologists in The Yucatan Jungle, as she starts her journey she meets Australian Carter Logan and together they start an adventure, for Lily this will see her fleeing drug traffickers getting shot at and surviving in the jungle and getting to know the one man that she knows will protect her.
Carter Logan left Australia four years before to capture the best photo ever, an award winning one, he aims to travel the world and see the seven wonders and with the discovery of Agulinta in the Yucatan Jungle he arrives and the minute he meets Lily in the hotel he sees her spunk and is drawn to her like no other he is a loner normally but when they are forced to share the same guide he finds that he likes her company and when danger chases them and they save one another from some really bad situations he can’t help but fall for her but will she still want him if he tells her his secrets?
This story is amazing I could barely it down I had to keep reading to see how things worked out for them, to be lost in the jungle the way they were, to lose their guide, but they never gave up, Lily has such awesome survival skills and Carter the courage and strength to encourage and protect as they slowly fall for one another, they saved each other time and again. MS Talbot has written an awesome romantic suspense one that I highly recommend and woohoo it is the first of a series with more to come, if you have never tried one of MS Talbot’s stories then I suggest this one because you will be sold and hooked way to go Kendall Talbot this one rocks thank you.
