Just as a warning, my keyboard is dying. My h, y, u, and m keys sometimes work and sometimes don’t. My two spellchecks usually catch them, but not always. If you spot a missing letter, please forgive me.
So, this is the second book in the ladies’ Deserted Island books. Natural Disaster is all about the further adventures of Carter, Theo, and June. There are likely to be spoilers, since the last book ended on a cliffhanger, but as always, I’ll try to keep them to a minimum.
So, June is gone, Carter is nearly feral, and Theo is torn. There is a lot going on in Theo’s head. Carter sure tries to knock it all out of there for him. Finally, the two men stop with all the testosterone and try to figure out where June has been taken, and what they can do to find her. Turns out that there is another island not too far away, and that is the most likely place for her to be. So, off they go to swim to the island.
Meanwhile, June is being kept captive by some bad guys. They don’t want her for her, they want her so that they can torture her in front of Carter to get answers from him. She doesn’t really want that to happen, so she’s going to try to get away. Of course, that doesn’t necessarily work the way she wants, but that’s OK, Theo and Carter are there now.
I kind of feel like there is something missing in this story, and I don’t know what it is. Don’t get me wrong, I liked the story, but there is just this nagging feeling that something is missing.
We get a lot of Theo’s back story in this one, and it really does explain a lot of his actions in the books. I don’t like his mom though. I get that she has trauma, but that doesn’t excuse her actions.
Carter has all kinds of epiphanies going on in this book. I think that’s a good thing. He’s learning things he needs.
I thought that June was kind of a throwaway character here. She didn’t really advance the story all that much. She was just there for the boys to fuck.
I am looking forward to the next one.
OK, that’s all for this one. Go check it out. Happy Reading!
