"A great book from fab new M&B author Joss Wood. Her writing is sassy and assured with wonderful touches of wry humour. The locations were amazing, the plot fresh and the characters - Maddie and Cale - and their conflicts, were compelling. I loved this book, and can't wait for more from Joss."
"I hadn't picked this book up first time around, because I couldn't face another cliche-desert-island-girls-in-bikinis-with-wafting-palm-trees scenario. Can't say how wrong I was to have had those expectations - the story couldn't be less like that - and how pleased I am that the lack of new Riva titles meant I came back to this awesome book.
The close focus and the setting gives the story an almost 3D feel - the background wildlife detail is fascinating, yet this pales against the vividly drawn characters, and their monumental emotional struggles. Honor's torment is truly heart wrenching, echoed by Rob's as he tries to reach her. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Specially loved the mythical tie in at the end.
This novel proves that category romance can be as intelligent, hard hitting, raw, relevant and high quality as the very best fiction out there.
An amazing book!"
"Original setting for this book, which made it refreshingly different - a very modern modern! Enjoyed it a lot. Clementine was an interesting heroine, and Serge was a very hunky hero. Looking forward to more from Lucy Ellis"
"One of my favourite ever Riva books. The conflicts Nikki Logan draw seem so real, and so insurmountable, from the amazing first scene, right to the end - I couldn't put this book down. Although the hero isn't available - very unusual - I felt the characters maintained their moral integrity throughout. Huge sexual tension and heat, despite there being no explicit scenes. Brilliant!"
