Marooned in Miami by Sandra Bunino

To Sum it Up:

A nasty storm knocking out the power strands to strangers in a hotel.  Stephanie decides to take advantage of it thinking that a hot one night stand is what she needs to get a clean break from her past.  However, after they part, Jason and their night together haunt her thoughts.  Maybe they could try getting another taste…

My Opinion:

This is a romantic novella that is sexy as hell and leaves you aching for the sequel.

My Thoughts:

We start off with both parties at a hotel, where they promptly get stuck on an elevator when the power goes out.  This gets them introduced and we play voyeur as they spend a single night together.  That one night leaves a lasting impression on them both, but Jason and Stephanie certainly have a few obstacles to overcome if they want to explore the passion they’ve shared and experience more out of a relationship than what they’ve gotten in the past.

Having had only one night to worry about, they’ve both kept their secrets, but if they want to meet again, they’re going to have to address the lies and get to know each other better.  This will be a lot easier to do with 5 whole days alone.  The book leaves us aching for more when the last thing we see is Jason and Stephanie reuniting at a hotel bar, where he discovers a spicy little secret she had no hope of keeping.  
It’s a fairly short story, but well done.  The character development is present, the plot well paced, and is enjoyable all around, leaving me itching for the sequel, which I believe is due out later this year.
