Lovewrecked - RB banner.jpg

From New York Times bestselling author Karina Halle comes a sexy new standalone romantic comedy about getting stuck on a deserted island with a man you hate to love and love to hate.
Lovewrecked is LIVE!



As a longtime fan of Karina Halle, I know she can create anything and I'll enjoy it. That being said, I'm so used to reading her angsty, intense characters that I forgot how much I enjoyed her lighter works. Lovewrecked gives us a lighter escape from the craziness of our current world. Thai and Daisy seem delightfully opposite from each other from the start and we all know that those couples who are so seemingly different are that much more fun to see fall for each other. It's always interesting to see how similar they are, despite the first impressions they give each other. He's got some interesting and tragic history and she's got some family baggage and together they are able to help each other move past the things that have held them back from the things they want. While their past informs their present, it's not the predominant feature of this novel; no, that would be their epic adventure that has them shipwrecked for a few weeks. It's that forced togetherness that really yields results, lol.

Lovewrecked's last few chapters before the epilogue are timely in their ability to capture how many of us are feeling in this quarantined time and timeless in that surely anyone would feel what they feel, should they find themselves in a similar situation. It's light on angst and heavy on fun characters, laugh out loud moments, and steamy romance--a definite escape from the daily grind.

Daisy Lewis is experiencing a relentless string of bad luck.
Fortunately, Daisy has her sister’s destination wedding coming up. A week of sand, sea, and sun in the South Pacific as the maid-of-honor is exactly what Daisy needs to forget her upturned life and focus on the positive.
That is until Daisy meets the best man.
If you take tall, dark, and handsome, and add a dash of rugged, a pinch of brooding, and a whole lot of sexy, you’ve got Tai Wakefield. Unfortunately he’s also a major grump, total alpha, and seemingly out to antagonize Daisy at every turn.
As if being part of the wedding party with Tai wasn’t bad enough, Daisy’s bad luck soon resurfaces when she ends up on a cramped sailboat with Tai and the newlyweds.
Which then shipwrecks on a deserted island near Fiji.
Okay, so they aren’t completely alone. There’s an oddball research scientist who has been isolated for far too long, they have rundown bungalows as shelter, stores of water and canned food, plus a feral goat named Wilson. It’s Lost…without the smoke monster.
But with rescue weeks away, Tai and Daisy realize the only way they’re going to get through this mess is to stop fighting and start working together.
And with their guards down, they get closer.
A lot closer.
Soon, Daisy realizes that the only thing worse than being stuck on a deserted island, is being stuck on a deserted island with a man she hates to love and loves to hate.
A man that can break her heart.
