It was supposed to be a quiet getaway....
After being jilted at the altar, a heartbroken Camille Preston is desperate to get away. She decides to make use of her planned honeymoon and escapes to the Caribbean. She is encouraged by friends to move on by having a fling, no strings attached while on her trip. She knows that it is not in her nature to be so reckless and bold, so she puts the idea out of her mind - until she has an encounter with a sexy stranger who invokes desires she had never felt before.
Ex-Marine Jason Pryce is on a solo vacation, seeking an escape from his memories and solace for his tortured soul. When he lays eyes on an exotic beauty, he is convinced that she is just the distraction he needs to relieve him from his torment. His attraction to her is surprising and undeniable. He begins his perusal of her, only to discover that her life is in danger. Their vacation quickly turns deadly, and it is up to Jason to save her life...if he can get to her in time.
I usually don't like short stories but when I saw that Aaron Shedlock was narrating I went for it! I'm a fan of his sweet, rough timber and appropriate inflections. One of his female character voices made me chuckle but I doubt I could come up with multiple (convincing) female voices either...and I'm a female! Needless to say I enjoyed his performance and recommend this audiobook for that reason alone.
Enter the author Leydy Otero. I've never read/listened to any of her work before this so I didn't have any preconceived notions of her. I was pleasantly surprised at how well developed the characters and storyline was for a short story. I'm buying the second part along with grabbing the third in writing as I'm hooked. I look forward to more of her work and I might even give another author a chance again at a short story.
This audiobook was gifted to me by the narrator, author, or publisher in exchange for an honest review.
