I won't do a plot re-hash and will try to leave out spoilers (which is going to be hard), but the thing I loved most is Hannah is attracted to Adam right from the start (she's supposed to---you'd have to be dead not to react to a tall, gorgeous, charismatic man), but doesn't have the "flop back and spread 'em" reaction that's so prevalent in romance. Seriously, is it absolutely necessary for the heroine to put out five seconds after meeting the hero? What ever happened to the "romance" aspect of romance books? Shouldn't there be some kind of lead in or ratcheting tension between H and h?
Sorry about that. Hannah is attracted, but stays professional, and after the shipwreck, gives in to the attraction only when she knows it's right. You have to respect that. I know some would think that's boring, and that reaction is probably based on reading other VW stories (e.g., the hilarious "He wanted me pregnant!" books. Yes, pregnant.). But back to Hannah. Her character arc isn't really about overcoming shyness due to her curves, or really solely about overcoming her past heartbreak. Her true arc is when she overcomes her fears, and I've never read a more suspenseful scene (even in thrillers) than the one towards the end of Shipwrecked. Hannah is strong, feisty, and extremely likeable; stick with the book, and you'll be pulling for her too.
The story is only from Hanna's perspective, and Adam's arc isn't quite as deep, so we miss getting his viewpoint. But there's a lot of laugh-out-loud (or at least chuckle/giggle) bickering and interactions between the two (the fire scene, mud scene, fishing scene), and once they finally come together the two are a fantastic fit. Adam's a great H, and who doesn't love a rock god who owns a cat?
I want to hit a few points from a couple lower-rated reviews. Adam's accent for one---once they are off the ship, it seems to disappear. I'm wondering if it's really supposed to be an accent, or a result of Adam's...hmmmm..acting out. Someone complained that Hannah doesn't strut around, large and proud. I wouldn't say strutting would even match Hannah's character. She wasn't ashamed either, but more like a normal woman who has curves. And a final comment was about loose ends. I didn't find any---VW does the wrap-up nicely, telling us what happened with the crew, the band, the monkey, etc.
Despite some small errors that a decent proofreader can clean up, I thought this was a solid story with two great leads (plus a cat and monkey). Witty banter, steamy love scenes, and a few truly suspenseful moments: this book has it all. I loved it. I hope you do too.
The chemistry is classic, 'He's too rich, too famous, top sexy and too attractive to find plus-size me' attractive. Our heroine is down on love and has had very little passion in her life of late since she's afraid to open her heart up to someone again, but when circumstances force them to depend on one another, the results are very sensual, hot, and passionate.
This is the first Victoria Wessex story that I've read and I will soon be reading more...
