I kind of liked it but I also expected a different ending for some reason. I‘m happy that everyone got a happy ending but I wonder if it‘s realistic.

Mamashep My book club was convinced to read this one and we were all so creeped out by the relationship. 10mo
BookishGirl06 @Mamashep I honestly thought the same thing. I was expecting them to move on at the end and find new people 10mo

When I think of a beach, I almost always recall this book. I have read it three times and I am not normally a romance reader. This story has a lot going for it.

keys_on_fire Just goes to show that a good story surpasses genres! 12mo

Ok so this wasn‘t a super serious read and to be fair it wasn‘t the most well written book I have ever read BUT for some reason I couldn‘t put it down. I read it mostly in one sitting because I HAD to know what happened to Anna and TJ. While I think everything was wrapped up almost too nicely, in the end I still actually really enjoyed the book. This romance(?)/survival story would make a great summer read.

Most true romance novels have bad covers, but I actually really thought this was a #badcovergoodbook. I felt the traumatic event was portrayed realistically and the romance lovely & believable. A sweet palate cleanser! #aprilbookshowers

@RealLifeReading
in this really cold day of january I wish I was on a desert island in the middle of the Indian Ocean..

⭐⭐⭐ the twist at the end, how they have been rescued, is the only thing I didn't see it coming.. I'm not a huge fan of romance, but this is a good novel.

There were some cute moments, but its a book I quickly forgot after completing it. It lacked complexity and I thought the book could have done with more research. It was a quick, light read.

"I will always keep my promises to you, Anna."
A lovely, gripping, and romantic desert island story.
