Publisher Description

Two hot guys. One desert island.

Troy Tanner walks out on his boy band's world tour rather than watching his little brother snort his life away. Screw it. He'll take a private jet home and figure out his life away from the spotlight.

But Troy doesn't make it home.

The plane crashes on a jungle island in the South Pacific. Forget dodging the paparazzi—now Troy's desperate for food and water. The turquoise ocean and white sand beach looks like paradise, but danger lurks everywhere. Thank God the pilot survived too. At least Troy's not alone. He has Brian.

Brian's smart and brave and strong. He doesn't care that Troy's famous. Brian's real. As days turn into weeks with no sign of rescue, Troy and Brian rely on each other. They make each other laugh despite being stranded. They go from strangers to friends.

What happens when they want more?

Although he and Brian both identify as straight, their growing desire burns hotter than the tropical sun. If they explore their sexuality a thousand miles from anything or anyone, can their newfound love survive in the real world if they're finally rescued?

This slow-burn LGBT romance from Keira Andrews features bisexual awakening, scorching mm first times, an age gap, and of course a happy ending.

Beyond the Sea

I do love an adventure and I definitely love a “happily-ever-after” ending, but most important it has to be well written. This was everything above and so much more. I went into the story knowing it was about two men. And while this would not normally be the type of story I read, as Brian said “Love is love.” I absolutely loved it!

Two lives; 2 lanes; 2 time zones; neither being the right one !!!

Keira Andrews’ story is about “time” … moments in time …
minutes and hours … learning in discovery … about a young vibrant twenty-six year-old band member, named TROY … and an older thirty-nine year-old airline pilot, named BRIAN … all presumed dead … isolated on a small South Pacific Ocean island atoll, after the crash of their small business size-jet, which had departed Australia en-route to Los Angeles, California. Two-Survivors of the crashed jet in a turbulent rain-storm encountered during the jet’s air-borne journey.

Survivors - TROY and BRIAN - in their individual reality - alone, relying, dependent upon each other, to stay alive, hoping for a rescue, with nothing but “time” … a theory that may prove time and life are not in sync … as if time is all wrong … life is lived on the wrong bank of a west facing island beach front, worse yet, two sides of an island to choose as their base-camp sight. Neither being the right one … NO one may want to claim to live in two parallel life’s lanes but all have many lives … one tucked beneath or right along side the other … with a knowledge of the absence of … love …

Basically, some lives wait their turn to live in time … we don’t know to think of time because time doesn’t really understand time the way thought processes reality … because time is just a wobbly unreliable metaphor for how we think about life. Because ultimately it isn’t time that is wrong for us … or we for time …
… it may be life itself that is wrong.

The question ? … the answer … ?
Being saved is being found … on your own deserted mental beach.
… A closure … an end of a time … in space …
… just a distant memory …
… an uncomfortable silence …
… between two bound souls in the space of time …
… with no regrets … ?

… ? … Your f**ked …
… ? … I’m f**ked …
… ? … We’re f**ked … !!!
Heartache can be contracted without symptoms ……
… never knowing you are suffering from it ……
Who knows ? May seem that there has never been real love, nor intimacy in each of their lives …
… Two lives … two life lanes … two time zones apart …
With neither being the right one living …
… time not aligning …
… having totally different itineraries …
… closure, if it exists at all, is either for the afterlife or for those who remain behind for life’s purpose …
… ULTIMATELY … it is the living who’ll close the ledger of two lives extending their relationship … not to be just a memory … in “time” !
… Because … they’ve never found anyone who mattered enough to hurt them … never closing the book looking for someone to love …
… in happiness … charting a passion in life … the right one …

Judging a Book by it's Cover:
Two men, clothed, but in the beginning stages of passion, ready to disrobe. Tropical beach scene surroundings. Synopsis sounds a cliche and silly, but I'm willing to give it a chance.
Looking Deeper:
Third-person POV. Troy walks in on his brother, bandmates and girlfriend partying it up and walks out after it's clear that his brother did not take an ultimatum to quit seriously. With plans to fly home from Sydney to L.A., he hires a small jet to get him home immediately. Brian is the pilot's second. Once hailed a hero after averting an air disaster, he suffers survivor's guilt and cannot stomach the thought of captaining again. A sudden storm brings the plane down on an uninhabited island hundreds of miles from any other civilization.
If you are looking for a full-on m/m romance in this story, this may not be the book for you. As the synopsis claims, these *are* two straight men that must depend on one another to survive and ever-so slowly develop a bond that forms a relationship. Only about thirty percent of the story involves them as a couple. But the journey they face in getting there, and their discoveries post-rescue take the reader on an adventure that is a pleasure to read nonetheless. There is not a lot of room for secondary characters while they are on the island, there are a few pre- and post- that add some dynamics, depth and minor conflicts. The dialogue is fantastic. Characters interact naturally. The plot was not as chaotic and deep as some, but it did not really need to be - in fact, the stripped bare feel to parts of it were a nice reflection of situation and circumstances that surrounded Troy and Brian while stranded. Predictability was low and the conclusion was solidly provided with a short flash-forward style epilogue.
Overall, although it was lower in M/M Romance content, the story of survival and opening up to new horizons was well told and enjoyable to read.
Rating: [R] ~ Score: 4.2 ~ Stars: 4
