BLURB: Two straight guys. One desert island. 

Even if it means quitting their boy band mid-tour, Troy Tanner isn’t going to watch his little brother snort his future away after addiction destroyed their father. On a private jet taking him home from Australia, he and pilot Brian Sinclair soar above the vast South Pacific. Brian lost his passion for flying—and joy in life—after a traumatic crash, but now he and Troy must fight to survive when a cyclone strikes without warning.

Marooned a thousand miles from civilization, the turquoise water and white sand beach look like paradise. But although they can fish and make fire, the smallest infection or bacteria could be deadly. When the days turn into weeks with no sign of rescue, Troy and Brian grow closer, and friendship deepens into desire.

As they learn sexuality is about more than straight or gay and discover their true selves, the world they’ve built together is thrown into chaos. If Troy and Brian make it off the island, can their love endure?

This is a very touching and moving love story you would not want to miss. I don’t remember the last time I got lost in a book like that. I was so engrossed I couldn’t put it down, but never wanted it to end. This story is a wonderful example of what reading is really about. Being taken away to places you have never been before, put into a situation you would never even dream of.

Getting strained on an uninhabited island with a complete stranger is a scenario we have all thought about. We might have read Robinson Crusoe, seen Cast Away or other movies, and smile at the references, but reading a story set in the 21st century is a whole new experience. I have no words to express how much I enjoyed this book. The pace is perfect, the build-up very well structured. I felt everything they did. I was terrified, lost, hurt, grateful, thirsty, hungry, and desperate for human contact. Troy and Brian’s story is gripping, exciting, heartwarming, and their building relationship is beautifully portrayed.

Keira Andrews is a master storyteller. Her characters are intriguing, complex and real. The writing is flawless as always, with lots of humor and even more heart. Highly recommended!!!
