Review: Lovewrecked by Karina Halle

April 30, 2020

A grumpy groomsman. A surprise shipwreck. Stuck on a deserted island together? Worst maid-of-honor gig ever.

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.

Lovewrecked was just what I needed in these crazy times we are living. It was light and fun, with a beautiful island setting. The main characters Tai and Daisy were great, and I loved the banter between them. Tai is grumpy and broody, while Daisy is more uplifting and lively. They were definitely the opposites, but you know what they say: opposites attract. These characters plus Daisy's sister and husband are shipwrecked and stranded on a deserted island.

I love the stranded trope, especially when it is on an island, because it is just a beautiful setting. These characters were already sick of each other after spending closely together on a boat for ten days, but things get even more heated when they get stranded. The chemistry and interactions between all four of the characters were great. I loved all of them. Tai and Daisy were perfect for each other, and I loved seeing them grow closer and closer together.

This was a fun, sexy and light contemporary romance, with very likable and relatable characters. Karina Halle did such a great job with this book. I was hooked from the start and looked forward to reading what would happen next. I didn't want the story to end, and I wouldn't have minded if the characters were stranded longer on the island. This book is perfect for romance readers and I highly recommend anyone who enjoys this genre to pick this book up.
