Blurb: When reporter Abbie Marshall needs to escape Honduras, a private jet carrying a Hollywood A-lister is her only way out. She has a ride home with Irish actor Jack Winter - notorious womanizer and all round bad boy. Abbie is shaken to the core by Winter's blazing beauty and provocative mind.

After the plane's nose-dive into the remote rainforest forces them to fight for survival, Abbie catches tantalizing glimpses of the complicated man behind the image. And the more she sees of him, the more he touches some primal part of her that she is determined to suppress. But after a devastating encounter with Winter's shadow side, Abbie's detachment is shattered.

On returning to normal life, Abbie cannot forget what happened, nor ignore the shocking rumours about the star's private life. Her struggle to make sense of her torment leads straight back to Winter, who is just as obsessed by her. But if they are to have a relationship, Abbie knows she must embrace his hidden desires... and accept her own.

No longer caring about anything but their intoxicating love affair, Abbie is drawn deeper into the dark heart of Winter - and the secret that threatens to destroy everything...

*First of all I would like to thank the publishers for sending me a copy of this book via Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.*

Review: I was very intrigued by the blurb of this book, being lost in the jungle, fighting for survival with a Hollywood star is not, let's say, a really usual premise. But from page one the action started and I was surprised to find myself totally engrossed in the story. I really liked Abbie, she was a strong woman, ready to fight and not easy to bend except with a really sexy Irishman. The sexual tension and the chemistry between these two was palpable from the begining and even after days fighting for theirs lives in the middle of one of the most dangerous places, exhausted, with the same clothes and no way to shower, you could tell their atraction for each other was driving them crazy.

Even after their return to normal life, their story had me totally hooked. I found the plot very interesting and the scenes between them when they finally succumb to each other are sexy and hot. And I found it a very good idea that the book was written from both Abbie and Jack's perspectives so we got to understand Jack so much better. The were also a couple of unexpected twists that kept the story intriguing and not only focused on their relationship. 

I look forward to reading more about this couple in the short story A Touch of Winter and I am for sure checking more books by this author.
