• MY REVIEW •
“I said we wouldn’t crash, and life made a fool out of me. It can’t happen again. It’s up to me to get us to safety, somehow.”
Warren and Wilde must’ve laughed at the thought of a prequel novella being an easing introduction to its main story because they plunge you straight into the deep end with this one! 😱
It’s fast-paced, punchy, and already has the heat levels rising. You can’t fault the premise because you’re getting exactly what it says it entails…
- Plane crash? Check ✔
- A deserted island? Check ✔
- Lust-fuelled interactions? Check ✔
- Danger lurking in the shadows? Again… check ✔
The Crash has set the atmosphere and the instantaneous dynamic between June and Carter. It’ll leave you armed with the know-how of the ominous situation they’ve been unexpectedly thrust into, and raring to start Force Of Nature.
I immediately perked up at the opposites-attract trope in this story, and I can already tell June will be a breath of fresh air in the Morelli family, and ultimately within the world of the Midnight Dynasty. Carter is not at all what I had expected from his brief appearances in previous stories, but I’m intrigued by his character, now more than ever.
“But I want her. The crash shattered my self-control.”
It’s a contemporary, billionaire romance with a twist. Carter may be a Morelli but he’s certainly not the intimidating, suit-wearing type, who flaunts his wealth and power… well, not yet at least. June is a likable heroine who screams “damsel-in-distress”, but having read quite a few books from this world and in particular from these two authors, there’s always more than meets the eye with the characters.
It’s a great little intro to June and Carter as protagonists, and seeing their first encounter. I would’ve loved to have seen a tad more suspense to really amped up the story and for what’s to come, but I’m not fussed because this is just the prequel. The instant-attraction mixed with the life and death experience they share leaves plenty of room for their relationship to develop, and with how this novella concluded, another element has been added to keep things on the island just a smidge more complicated.
