LOVEWRECKED by Karina Halle
A grumpy groomsman. A surprise shipwreck. Stuck on a deserted island together? Worst maid-of-honor gig ever. From the NYT bestselling author of A Nordic King comes an all-new standalone romantic comedy.
Daisy Lewis is experiencing a relentless string of bad luck.
Fortunately, Daisy has her sister’s destination wedding coming up. A week of sand, sea, and sun in the South Pacific as the maid-of-honor is exactly what Daisy needs to forget her upturned life and focus on the positive.
That is until Daisy meets the best man.
If you take tall, dark, and handsome, and add a dash of rugged, a pinch of brooding, and a whole lot of sexy, you’ve got Tai Wakefield. Unfortunately he’s also a major grump, total alpha, and seemingly out to antagonize Daisy at every turn.
As if being part of the wedding party with Tai wasn’t bad enough, Daisy’s bad luck soon resurfaces when she ends up on a cramped sailboat with Tai and the newlyweds.
Which then shipwrecks on a deserted island near Fiji.
Okay, so they aren’t completely alone. There’s an oddball research scientist who has been isolated for far too long, they have rundown bungalows as shelter, stores of water and canned food, plus a feral goat named Wilson.
It’s Lost…without the smoke monster.
But with rescue weeks away, Tai and Daisy realize the only way they’re going to get through this mess is to stop fighting and start working together.
And with their guards down, they get closer.
A lot closer.
Soon, Daisy realizes that the only thing worse than being stuck on a deserted island, is being stuck on a deserted island with a man she hates to love and loves to hate.
A man that can break her heart.
Book Nerd Kate’s Review: ☕☕☕☕☕
I was searching for some great vacation reads for my week at the beach and this one managed to check off all the right boxes. It takes place in New Zealand, Fiji, and the seas between.Tai and Daisy do not get off on the right foot.. but they sure do get quite cozy as the book goes on. This book was sexy, adventurous, with just the right amount of angst for a great beach read. It is a standalone that falls into the Enemies to Lovers category with bits of Romantic Comedy. It was flirty, sexy, and sweet and made for the perfect mental escape to truly relax on vacation. Loved it! I highly recommend this for a fun, light read that is sexy and romantic.
