Review: "Swept Away" by Toni Blake

Kat loved Brock when she was a teenager and he broke her heart… not once, but twice. So ten years later on the eve of Kat’s wedding when he wades in from the sea onto a beach occupied only by Kat, she’s going to need to keep her senses to keep from being swept away by Brock.

Brock is in the middle of a mission and doesn’t need any distractions. But when he discovers Kat on a private tropical island, he decides that a little hot and sweaty fun might be in order since they are stranded. And he’s not about to let her engagement to a man she doesn’t love stand in the way of making up for his past rejection of her.

I could not put this book down. I was drawn in from the first page, which happened to be a flash back to a teenage Kat on her high school graduation day. I enjoyed the characters and the situation Ms. Blake placed them in. The isolated tropical island, a couple bad guys hunting down Brock, a little suspense and a red-hot romance make for an intriguing story. I think my only complaint is that I figured out who the mastermind criminal was almost from the minute he was introduced. Granted he wasn’t the smartest criminal, but it would’ve been nice to have been in the dark a little longer. That said, this one thing did not diminish my enjoyment of the book. I’m looking forward to getting my hands on my books from Ms. Blake and highly recommend this one.
