Casting director Erica Reese has her life planned: career, monetary success, then maybe marriage and children. Unfortunately, if she doesn’t leave Los Angeles and accept a new position in New York City, producer Derek Delmont will screw up her plans. What was supposed to be a hot distraction from her busy, lonely life has begun to turn into something Erica doesn’t want—love.
Known as the king of reality television, Derek is wealthy, sexy, a total playboy, and crazy about Erica. After being rejected by his family and ex-wife, and sick of being used by people hoping to get ahead in Hollywood, Erica isn’t just a breath of fresh air, she’s hurricane-force winds. She’s blown into his life and has him ready to take another shot at love.
Anxious to take their affair to the next level, Derek invites Erica to join him on an exotic Caribbean island where his crew will begin filming his reality show, Bared and Scared. Before they can reach the luxurious resort, a tropical storm separates them from the crew and leaves them lost in a deadly jungle. While they search for a way out, they’re forced to face the past, present and future. And as they battle the elements, the harsh environment will test their feelings for each other beyond anything either of them ever expected. Can their relationship survive the journey? The bigger question…can they?
Just when I think Kristine can’t get any better as a writer, she finds a way to step is up a notch. I really enjoyed this book. I connected to the characters so much and just got lost in the beautiful scenery and action going on throughout. Not gonna lie, I was getting worried when we didn’t have a new book out the whole year, so getting this novel before Christmas was an awesome surprise. If you have read any of Kristine’s books or just love romance in general, you will not go wrong with picking this one up. Perfect for those boring winter days or as a beach read :)
I read this book in one sitting!
Just in time for the holidays, a whirlwind stay at the tropical paradise that is the Isle of Mason! While this is a great contemporary love story, what shines brightly in this book are the people, places and peril connected with this 4th installment of the Reality TV Romance Series.
Can Derek and Erica’s casual fling survive being stuck on an island together in less than favorable conditions? And if so, what happens they get back to Reality? As they work through their issues with trust, self doubt and fear of being rejected, we find ourselves hopeful that they will find their HEA.
This book literally has Kristine Mason all over it. Well written characters, exotic locales, a scary villain and even sloths!
Isle of Mason? You will too...
