What’s a little fantasy between strangers?
Under the Caribbean Sun, Book 4
If Dr. Janny Baird is sure of anything, it’s that love isn’t written in her stars. She keeps her libido in check and fuels her imagination with paperback fantasies. Suffering through a friend’s wedding on a remote Aleutian island, she indulges in a little Bedded by the Bad Boy by taking a wild, erotic ride on the back of a stranger’s motorcycle.
When the previous night’s distraction turns up at the wedding looking all Taken by the Tycoon, she decides one more fantasy night won’t hurt, and gives Nik Hansen total control.
The last thing she expects is for Mr. Bad Boy/Tycoon to show up in the Caribbean, disrupting her regularly scheduled life and ready to play Claimed by the Cowboy. As much as Nik wants to make every one of Janny’s fantasies come true, he wouldn’t mind being part of her reality. He’s determined to stake a claim…on island life and on Janny’s heart.
Warning: Your secret fantasies are not safe. This cowboy is a patient man. He’ll reach deep inside you to make them all come true…one red-hot fantasy at a time.
As the fourth book in the series, I found it difficult to follow in the beginning. It is written for a reader who knows the characters and the series. I did not, so that was a big issue for me. However, the writing and the storyline were good and worked really well. Dr. Janny Baird was attending the wedding festivities of her best friend. Janny is obsessed with romance novels and has always wanted to live one out in real life. While at the rehearsal dinner party, she meets the incredibly handsome and sex Nik. Nik, also, happens to be her best friend’s brother. Yikes!
I found the story well written and the character development to be done well. The author writes a broken character well, even if she isn’t a likable one. With that said, I found Janny to be an unlikable character. She has baggage. She has faults. But, she was more worried about her image and what others thought of her than anything else. Nik, on the other hand, wants to make all of her dreams come true. He treats her well despite how she treats him and maintains his sweet, sexy, and intense determination.
I think this could be a great short, quick, story for someone familiar with the series. Unfortunately, for me, it didn’t work that way and I was too frustrated and lost to care.
