Review

"There's a moment when it comes to amazing books... where you realize that the book you're reading completely and irrevocably owns you... [Surviving Raine] has that moment." - Ash the Book Snob

Shay Savage's website almost cockily proclaims that she writes "Fiction with Teeth". HA! Nothing cocky about the truth, my friends. I guarantee, that is maybe the *only* accurate way to sum up the dark, unsettling, exciting, unapologetic, fascinating, shocking, frank, graphic, primal, crude, sexy, at times horrific, consistently compelling experience that is Surviving Raine!!" -Elizabeth (Sweptawaybyromance.com)

There are moments in Surviving Raine that will make you laugh, make you cry, and make your heart (and other parts) clench. This is one you will definitely want to put on your TBR list! -Kassie and Lauren (fics2flicks.com)

Surviving Raine is the story of Bastian and Raine who end up shipwrecked on a 10 foot emergency raft after Bastian's schooner, Oblation capsizes in the Caribbean Sea. Dire weather conditions and limited supplies of food, water, alcohol and cigarettes put them on a collision course with disaster as an injured Bastian is forced to detox leaving Raine to take care of him and keeping them alive. Both Bastian and Raine have trouble pasts. Once Bastian wakes up a friendship is forged and a romance ensues while their past comes back to haunt them. They are faced with danger and many set-backs while they are waiting to be rescued. But they are also rewarded as secrets are uncovered. Their story is a journey of self-discovery, making peace with one's demons and taking a chance on love.

Surviving Raine was my first survival story and I loved it! This book is about human will to survive, about not giving up even in the worst possible conditions, about fighting for your life. This story is about messed up individual getting first chance for true happiness, about finding love under most unexpected circumstances and about finally feeling worthy of yourself. Surviving Raine is intense, emotional, rough and exciting story which you will not be able to put down once you start reading it!

Sebastian is not a people's person. He may be a captain of a schooner cathering, sailing people around the Caribbean Seas but rather than making some contact with people, he prefers a bottle of something strong and local h**ker here and there.

From the beginning it is clear that Bastian drinks because he needs to forget things from his past and to keep his nightmares away. So when during one of voyages his ship crashes and he finds himself on a life raft with one of the passangers and without any alcohol at all, his withdrawals bring all demons back. Especially when he realizes that Raine is connected with his past in the way he never expected...

Bastian's head was one depressive and messed up place. Once absence of alcohol makes it presence, his otherwise bad temper and sulky nature turns into full-blown craziness. Be prepare for some nasty times, as always when it comes to addict in detox. Once I found out things about his past, there were moments I didn't know what to think about him. But seing it all from his point of view? I could not bring myself to judge or hate him. He was just victim of system and sad events in his life. His story touched my heart and I ended up accepting who he was and loving him nonetheless.

REVIEWED FOR: Swept Away By Romance

Shay Savage's website almost cockily proclaims that she writes "Fiction with Teeth". HA! Nothing cocky about the truth, my friends. I guarantee, that is maybe the *only* accurate way to sum up the dark, unsettling, exciting, unapologetic, fascinating, shocking, frank, graphic, primal, crude, sexy, at times horrific, consistently compelling experience that is Surviving Raine!!

Truly, there is just no adequate way to summarize this story. There may not even be any way to review this book and do it any kind of justice. Attempting to convey just what Surviving Raine is and does and makes you feel? No, really. I don't believe it's possible. If that's a cop-out, then it's a cop-out, but it would take a far better review than myself to be able to express....this....bizarre, violent, emotional, sexy mess of a story.

**********
Here's the official blurb:
As the captain of a schooner catering to the elite on the Caribbean Seas, Sebastian Stark does his best to avoid any human encounters. Interacting with people isn't his thing, and he prefers the company of a bottle of vodka, a shot glass, and maybe a whore. There's no doubt he's hiding from a checkered past, but he does well keeping everything to himself...

...until the night his schooner capsizes, and he's stuck on a life raft with one of the passengers.

Raine's young, she's cute, and Bastian would probably be into her if he wasn't suffering from alcohol withdrawal. As the days pass, DTs, starvation, and dehydration become the norm. Even the most closed person starts to open up when he thinks he's going to die, but when she realizes their traumatic pasts are connected, it's no longer the elements that have Bastian concerned.
