From the blurb:
Even if it means quitting their boy band mid-tour, Troy Tanner isn’t going to watch his little brother snort his future away after addiction destroyed their father. On a private jet taking him home from Australia, he and pilot Brian Sinclair soar above the vast South Pacific. Brian lost his passion for flying—and joy in life—after a traumatic crash, but now he and Troy must fight to survive when a cyclone strikes without warning.
Marooned a thousand miles from civilization, the turquoise water and white sand beach look like paradise. But although they can fish and make fire, the smallest infection or bacteria could be deadly. When the days turn into weeks with no sign of rescue, Troy and Brian grow closer, and friendship deepens into desire.
As they learn sexuality is about more than straight or gay and discover their true selves, the world they've built together is thrown into chaos. If Troy and Brian make it off the island, can their love endure?
Keira Andrews, I want to kiss you and possibly give you money/anything else you want for writing this book. It's like you crept into my brain and pulled out my fantasies and made a book out of them!!
Yup, it's 2 am here, folks, and it would have taken a band of armed robbers to pry my kindle out of my hand before the last page of this book was turned. This book was simply divine! It took my favorite things in M/M and romance in general and combined them together in a fabulous, sexy package.
One of my all-time favorite books is On the Island. This is basically like a gay version of that!! Plane-wrecks, slow-burn romance, age gaps... DIVINE.
And folks.... I can barely breathe because we get not just one GFY, but TWO MOTHER-F-ING-GFYS!!!
Hyperventilating over here!!
Okay, here is the deal. Just because this book combined being stranded on an island and suddenly being attracted to dick doesn't make it a good book. I've given many a GFY story 1-star in my day. However, Keira Andrews just pro-leveled the crap of out this story. I mean, she just wrote its ASS OFF.
One of my favorite things about this book is the slooooowwww burn romance. You absolutely NEED slow-burn in a GFY story. It is simply a requirement for a good GFY. Here, the attraction built super slowly over time, and the sexual tension was allowed to just build and build. I was dying alongside these guys as things started headed towards sexy-land, and I was loving every second of their journey.
And once we got to their journey.... I was in HEAVEN! No, the sex isn't especially ground-breaking or kinky or dirty, but you know me and my butt-virgin kink. Yup, I'm a perv, I am! I thought that their connection was off the charts! Hot, emotional, tender, intense... it was just everything.
Aside from the relationship between the two MCs, the writing and the plot was really fascinating. No matter how many times I read these survival-ish stories, I'm still awestruck by challenges of surviving outside of civilization. These guys had it rough and it felt totally authentic.
I adored every second of this story. Will it be as much of a hit with every reader? Maybe. The writing is superb, and the two MCs are amazing together. However, for me it was just the perfect fit for my particular tastes and mood. On to my favorites list you go!!
