Indigo, ”Indy” is on the run from her past. She knows that it is only a matter of time that it will catch up with her if she stays in the States. She plans on starting her life over in England, maybe there she will be safe. While on her way there, the yacht that she is on catches fire and she and Eric, her best friend, have no choice but to abandon ship and pray that someone will come and rescue them. When help arrives, it’s not who they want to help them, it’s a ship of pirates and not the arrr matey ones but the real dangerous thing. Either way their fate isn’t looking good, either die at sea or possibly die at the hands of the pirates, even if the captain is sexy as hell.
Hendrix, the pirate captain, is dangerous, an asshole and oh so sexy. He plans on paying off a debt with Indigo, what he doesn’t plan on is what he starts to feel for her while she is on his ship. He is mean and will not take any shit from anyone and proves how far he will go to stop her from trying to escape. There is more than just the rugged and tough exterior to Hendrix, but will Indy be able to see the other side to him? Will he pay the debt he owes, or will he do whatever it takes to keep Indy with him?
I was surprised how much that I really liked this book, it is different than what I thought it would be and is something I wasn’t sure I would enjoy. I didn’t know about the whole pirate theme and how it would play out, but it works and honestly it has a pirate/MC feel too it, it wasn’t like how I thought it would be. I couldn’t put it down. I loved the interactions between Indy and Hendrix from the start, you could feel the sexual tension from the first moment they had alone. He could be such a douchebag to her and then do something to make me love him all over again. Indy was a survivor and she planned on doing what it took to survive her time with Hendrix, what she didn’t plan on was how she would feel for him. All I am going to say is I want to recreate that waterfall scene in my life, holy shit that was hot!
I was a fan of Bella Jewel before I read this book, and now I am an ever bigger one. She makes you fall in love with her series and the characters in each book are ones that you won’t forget. Fans of her MC Sinners series will love this one as well, and should put this on their TBR list. I cannot wait for the second book to come out so I can have another dose of these sexy as sin pirates!

“Stand up, this will be easier if you do,” he orders. He stands, taking me with him, and I lose my balance when I accidentally try to lift the wrong foot. Hendrix reaches out, taking my shoulder and goes to take a step forward to steady me, only to realize he’s wrapped the rope around his ankle, and is now tangled too. As if in slow motion, we topple backwards. I scream, and land with a thump on the ground as the ropes surround me. Hendrix lands over me, but manages to put his hand down to stop me taking the force of his body. He’s pressing into me in places he really shouldn’t be.
“Fuck,” he curses, tugging his hand to try and untangle it.
“How the hell did you get tangled too?” I cry out, squirming.
“Stop fuckin’ squirming like that,” he orders, and I stop as soon as I realize why he’s asked me to. He’s hard. My God, he’s hard.
“I’m fuckin’ hard because you’re squirming against me. I’m a man. Get over it.”
