Cady is a chef on the cruise ship. She took the job as a distraction after her ex cheated on her. She is normally a very cautious person, but she picks this night to step outside her comfort zone and sets her sights on Logan. Some conversation and a couple of dances later the sparks fly between them, and they head for his cabin. That's when things go haywire in a big way. Logan is attacked and thrown overboard, and Cady has a bag thrown over her head and is taken off the ship onto a raft.
I loved how Logan's instincts and training kick in even when he's injured and dazed. It doesn't take him long to decide that the only course of action is to swim after the kidnappers and save Cady. The action was intense as Logan worked to get them safely off the boat, only to find themselves floating helplessly in the middle of the ocean. The description of their time on the raft was so vivid that I could almost feel the sun's heat myself. The scene with the shark was terrifying and realistic. I found myself wondering how much more they could take before finding land.
I enjoyed the development of their relationship as it progressed under such challenging circumstances. Cady is understandably freaked out at the beginning. She is so intent on avoiding risk in her life that she has no idea how to handle their circumstances. Logan, thanks to his training, is cool under pressure and knows how to keep them alive. Once Cady breaks free of her panic, I loved seeing her rise to the challenges that Logan gave her. The two of them have to work together to survive, but it isn't always easy. There are some terrific scenes of the two of them butting heads as Cady stands up to some of Logan's caveman moments. Logan's protectiveness can be a little excessive, intensified by some things that happened during his most recent mission with the SEALs. His personal code of conduct tells him that giving in to the attraction between him and Cady would be wrong while he is responsible for her safety. Cady's fear of risk frequently causes her to accuse Logan of purposely doing dangerous things when he's only trying to take care of them or find a way off the island. All the while the heat between them continues to build until they can no longer resist it. Those scenes are intense and the connection between them is far deeper than either expects.
All the time Logan and Cady are on the island they are on the lookout for planes or boats that could provide a rescue for them. They also fear that the men who kidnapped Cady could track them down. When that happens, they once again have to fight for their lives. Thankfully, Cady has changed a lot in the last six weeks, and the outcome this time is different, though no less intense. I enjoyed their arrival back in civilization and had to laugh at their dinner choices for their first meal off the island. They still have some things to work out before they have the future that each of them dreamed of. I really enjoyed the ending with its two unexpected events. I can't wait to read the next book in the series.
Cady Crenshaw is a chef aboard a luxury cruise ship touring the South Pacific. She's also a close look alike former US President's adult daughter (think Obama). Navy SEAL Logan Starks is on semi light duty while he recovers from an injury and is assigned bodyguard detail for said daughter.
Daughter doesn't make it, and Logan spends time getting to know the intriguing Cady, who is recovering from a broken heart and a little stand offish. Bad guys grab Cady, though and throw Logan overboard. In the best Navy SEAL-He Man tradition, Logan swims after the captors, affects a rescue. The pair escape in a life raft and end up on a deserted island together. Alone.
Logan considers himself on-duty and fights their growing attraction as they fight to survive. Cady finds Logan hot, but focused and driven and she is unsure she wants a relationship with a military man. 6 weeks is a long time, though & they eventually give in. Can their love survive their circumstances? Will they be rescued in time? Will she allow herself to be happy with this career SEAL?
Susan Cliff story sucked me right in. There was a good balance of action & drama with the romance. Kudos to her and Harlequin for another well written story featuring a mixed race couple.
My only beef? I Immediately went in search of more by Susan Cliff but can't find anything. She's apparently a new author.
And she's going on my auto click list, for sure. I highly recommend.
I’m going to preface by saying that from the moment Logan and Cady landed on the deserted island I couldn’t help but think of the TV show Naked and Afraid. Everything they did reminded me of that show from finding food, shelter, and water, to making a fire and even the stubborn man who won’t listen to the woman because “Me man. Man know best” attitude. Honestly, both characters frustrated me to no end and it prevented me from truly enjoying the adventure and romance.
Cady has issues from her past that causes her to play it extremely safe. But her wanting to be safe is also causing her to be stupid. Main case in point is that she kept telling Logan that he was an adrenaline junkie and that he seeks out danger. When in fact, he was saving her life and trying to figure out a way to get them off the island. How does that translate into wanting to face danger?! Logan is trying to make sure they don’t die on the island and this heifer is complaining about it.
Logan is a another story. He’s attracted to Cady but he doesn’t want to give in to the feelings because he sees her as an “assignment”. Every physical move he makes, he apologizes afterwards. Calm down man! You’re on an island with a woman you were going to hook up with before the kidnapping!
Overall I enjoyed the story. Cady was annoying as hell and there were parts where I wanted Logan to leave her on the island. Cady wasn’t too stupid to live thank goodness but she was too annoying to deal with. She refused to see the bigger picture which was getting off the island.
