BOOK BLURB:

Indigo is running, she has no other choice. She’s done something bad, and the only way to escape it, is to flee her home, and her country. She sets out on a luxury Yacht, to take her to another country with her best friend Eric. But she runs into a problem.

The Yacht catches fire.

She ends up stranded in the ocean, terrified, and scared of the uncertain. Until they show up. The pirates. Terrified, Indigo and Eric have to face the reality that this might be the end for them. These are pirates, they are the criminals of the ocean. What chance have they got of surviving this nightmare?

Then she lays eyes on Hendrix. He’s the Captain, he’s gorgeous, rugged, and mean. He’s planning on keeping her to repay his debt to another man, by selling her. Now Indigo has a crazy ex after her, as well as a pirate she can’t seem to get out of her head.

Come on this heart wrenching, dark, angst and dangerous adventure as two people so opposite, find something so beautiful.

My Review: 3.5 to 4 stars

It’s against the rules.  You’re not meant to fall for your captor.

Who knew a modern day pirate story would interest me?  When I started the book one evening, I just expected to read a couple of chapters and then go to bed.  Yeahhhhh. Didn’t happen.  In fact, it was well after midnight when I regrettably put up my Kindle.

I might add that there were a few parts in this book that I couldn’t stand.  The heroines name for one.  Indigo. Ugh.  And her best friend, Eric, got on my nerves as well.  I know they were captured, blah, blah, blah but he just didn’t have a personality.  At all.  Lastly,  the cover for this book is all wrong.  She’s described in the book as being blonde but a brunette is stuck on the cover. :/

Overall, I enjoyed the book.  The characters are great, the action is superb, and the passion is HOT! The sex scenes will leave you panting and wanting more. Hendrix (the hero) is dominant and has a rough personality.  I really, really liked him.  I love to read about bad boys.  He’s definitely one of them.  Who doesn’t love a sexy pirate???

I never thought it possible to want someone so much, until him.  I can’t get enough of what he has to offer.  He gives it, and I can’t stop taking.

“You taught me how to open my heart.”

I swallow and reach up, stroking his face.

“You know what, pirate?” I murmur, meeting his eyes. “You taught me that, too.”

…………………………………………………………………………….

I was definitely intrigued.  Interesting plot, lots of action to keep you interested, and the ending left me wanting more.  All in all, great book.

thumbs up
