Stranded together, their passions will run wild.
Kara has a deep dislike for her boss, Max. She also wants him so badly it’s making her nuts. He’s a workaholic, a robot man. And he’s never shown the least bit of interest in her or anything else that wasn’t recorded in the corporate minutes. But when their plane crashes on the way to a meeting, leaving them stranded on a deserted island…just the two of them, all alone with all that ocean around them…Kara decides it’s time to start living. And by living, she means using Max for all the hot sex she’s been denied.
Max wants Kara—has wanted her for a long time. Unable to come out and cross the line between professional and personal, he makes her accompany him on business trips just to have her around. When they crash land and Kara shows him how much she wants him, he decides to quit being so professional and take the woman of his dreams. After all, what happens in the middle of nowhere, stays in the middle of nowhere. Until they’re rescued.
Back in the real world, things aren’t as easy. Kara is afraid to start a relationship with a man who completely ignored her until she took off her clothes, and Max is afraid she’ll never be able to trust him. But when someone makes it clear that Kara’s in danger, Max has more to protect than Kara’s feelings. And now that he has her, he’s not about to let her go.


Stranded Temptation is the kind of story you read as escapism.  It's an entertaining story with a storyline you could only dream about.  The characters are likable but are put into some over the top situations whose sole purpose is to bring them even closer together as the mystery itself comes out of nowhere with a culprit that also comes out of nowhere.

Max and Kara are both strong-willed which leads to some fiery confrontations.  Kara wants to stand on her own but Max's Alpha nature desperately wants to keep her close by and safe and sound. The story is fast-paced will plenty of action in and out of the bedroom to keep your pulse pounding.  The sexual interludes are frequent and satisfying and often are of the life reaffirming variety.  It was in fact this kind of moment that led to them doing away with their vows not to mix business with pleasure in the first place.  The verbal foreplay between the main characters was fun and flirty and was enhanced by the secondary characters who were equally engaging and supportive to the happiness of Kara and Max.

Those looking for a steamy read full of escapism with find that, and more, when reading Stranded Temptation.  April Angel knows reader's naughty little dreams and is happy to make them a reality!

My rating for this is a B+
