If one day I were lost at sea and stranded on a foreign, dangerous island, I would only want one thing. The one and only Sebastian Stark. If I had him, I’d have everything and I’m a hundred percent sure I will be okay. 😉
Shay Savage succeeded to create a great, original story with intense, deep characters. I loved the characters, the idea, and the writing. I loved the unforgettable, hilarious moments that Miss Savage brilliantly portrayed throughout the story because of their differences. They were memorable. What was missing? It was their story after the rescue. I wanted to know more about how their relationship was built under normal circumstances when they had to deal with the normality of everyday’s life. The end of the story made me wonder: “Would their relationship survive?” I really hope there would be a sequel for this story someday. But overall, what a wonderful story!
About Book 1:
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.
He has no idea how he’s going to Survive Raine.
My favorite quotes:
“How the fuck was I going to survive with this annoying, smoking hot bitch that I simultaneously wanted to fuck and kill?”
“Don’t touch me,” I clarified.
Because I want it and I don’t deserve it.”
“Your…acceptance of me,” I said. “That’s really my favorite thing about you. I don’t know why you put up with my shit, but I’m glad you do.”
He was so intense…
“I give you my life, my love, my soul,” I swore to her. “As long as I’m breathing, I’m yours.”
It turns out there is a sequel!
