Review: Swept Away by Toni Blake
HOLY HOT SMOKING SEX! So much of it too!
Five days before Kats wedding, she takes off to her families private island to get away one last time before her wedding to a man that she likes but doesn't love. She figures this is her last chance to relax and unwind by herself before marrying into a loveless marriage. What she didn't expect was to find her old crush, Brock, on the same beach.
Kat hasn't seen Brock in years until he washes up on the shore-literally. Brock is in danger and clearly needs help. In a race against time to save Brock's life, old feelings start to simmer between them. We are taken on a journey through a beautiful lush island, where not only a race to save their lives heats up- but so does their love.
LOVE LOVE Toni Blake! I have most of her novels and they are all filled with drama or suspense and emotional story lines with hot steamy romance. You can't go wrong with this author. Sadly, this book fell a little short for me. The sex, while steaming hot, was not appropriate at times. It just didn't fit some of the scenes while they're on the run. Not sure about you, but if I had mad men chasing after me with guns through a jungle on an island with no site of land for miles, the furthest thing from my mind would be sex at the top of the hill. But hey, different strokes for different folks. I would still recommend this book in the end.
