Synopsis from Goodreads:
The Yacht catches fire.
She ends up stranded in the ocean, terrified, and scared of the uncertain. Until they show up. The pirates. Terrified, Indigo and Eric have to face the reality that this might be the end for them. These are pirates, they are the criminals of the ocean. What chance have they got of surviving this nightmare?
Then she lays eyes on Hendrix. He's the Captain, he's gorgeous, rugged, and mean. He's planning on keeping her to repay his debt to another man, by selling her. Now Indigo has a crazy ex after her, as well as a pirate she can't seem to get out of her head.
Come on this heart wrenching, dark, angsty and dangerous adventure as two people so opposite, find something so beautiful.
The characters in this novel were quite well developed. I found myself rooting for them. Jewel ensures that you always understand why the characters do what they do and where they came from. Now, that doesn’t mean that I always agreed with them. There were quite a few times where I was left quite perplexed as to why a person (any person) would take that option, but then again, all people are individuals.
As a whole this was a unique, enjoyable read. Jewel has created a complex story that will leave you thinking.
