About the book: Just in time for the Summer Olympics, bestselling sweet romance author Cami Checketts brings you a new Destination Billionaire Romance.
Zack Tyndale was destined to win gold in the 2012 Olympics, but he tripped and shattered his own dreams. Running from his controlling father and the compassion in everyone’s eyes, he buys an island in the Caribbean where he can live blissfully alone.
Madeline Panetto’s graduation present is a trip sailing around the Caribbean on her father’s yacht. Unfortunately, her father is a pirate, and when there is an uprising on his ship, she escapes and crash-lands on Zack’s island.
Can these two find refuge from the pirates and with each other?
My review: This book starts out with a bang! Maddie is on her father's yacht sailing in the Caribbean. But her father...he's a pirate! A real one. And his ship is full of them as well, with him as the big boss. Those men are about to overcome him and he knows that Maddie is in danger. He sends her into the sea in a boat with a bunch of information about the crimes his men have committed, knowing that he is about to be killed by his men.
Maddie has no idea how she's going to survive in the boat and what if her father's men find her? She ends up crash landing on an amazing island in the middle of the Caribbean. It happens to belong to Zack Tyndale, a true gentleman. He agrees to care for her and help her get back to America, but they don't count on the pirates being able to follow them.
I really liked the characters in this book. I liked Maddie, she turned out amazingly well, even though her father was a pirate and absent from a good chunk of her life. I liked Zack too, I loved the way he took care of anything Maddie needed and "seeing" him with his niece was so cute!
Zack's friend Brooks was pretty interesting. I liked the way he was so full of himself that he couldn't imagine anyone liking Zack more than him. He really made the parts of the story he was in fun!
This is a cute, clean, quick read that you won't want to put down until you've read every suspenseful word!
I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
