Amelia Wilde & Skye Warren-Natural Disaster

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!

Amelia Wilde & Skye Warren-Force of Nature

So, Force of Nature is the next part of the series after The Crash, which is a prequel novella. If you haven’t read The Crash, don’t worry, it’s included in this. And I have one very important thing to say about this book and that is that I hope that Skye and Amelia are working really hard on the next book and that it will be out soon, because damn.

So, Carter and June have crashed on the deserted island, and there is someone after them. Carter pulls June into the jungle before the bad guys come, because they are coming. But when he runs out to get supplies from the crashed plane, someone shows up, and Carter ends up doing what he does best.

Carter is developing feelings for June, even though he knows that he shouldn’t. She’s too sweet, innocent, and naive to be part of his world, and she’s not in the mission parameters, but there’s still something about her.

What Carter doesn’t tell June immediately is that they aren’t the only people on the island. They’ve been following trails, manmade trails. Carter doesn’t know what to think about that.

Theo’s mom left the world many years ago and brought her son to this deserted island so that he wasn’t ruined by the outside world. He’s supposed to wait for the cities of men to burn and then help repopulate the world with pure people.

Carter is interesting. I think that he thinks that he is more evil than he really is. I mean, he’s a Morelli, so there is some evilness there, but I think that he has a worse view of himself than is really there. He is very determined and a little obsessive, I think. And able to lie to himself convincingly.

I like June. For all that she looks all sweet and innocent, she really isn’t. She has a lot of guts and determination. She isn’t going to let Carter down, and she isn’t going to complain, even when her feet are cut open and bleeding. I have some mad respect for her.

I don’t have much of an opinion on Theo yet. I mean, yeah, we get to see him interact with Carter and June, but I feel like he’s still a bit of a blank slate.

Anyway, that’s all for this one. Go check it out! Happy reading!

Amelia Wilde & Skye Warren-The Crash

Amelia and Skye are bringing us back into the Morelli world. The Crash is about Professor Carter Morelli and photographer June Porter, who have to deal with a plane crash on a small deserted island. This is a really quick read because it is just the prologue to the rest of the story, which will be out in a couple of months ago. So, just be aware that it is short when you start reading it.

Carter works for Oxford, and he’s getting ready to fly his very own plane to an outpost out in Mauritania. He’s just waiting for a passenger, a photographer named June. He has an idea of what she is going to look like, but when June walks in, he is surprised. She isn’t anything that he expected. And, oh, she’s afraid of flying.

Like I said, this is a really short story, just enough to whet our appetite, so to speak. We get to learn a bit about our main characters, June and Carter. I really can’t wait to see more of them and to get more of this story, because I am quite interested in what is going to happen.

So, yeah, this is a short blog post, but it’s a short story. Go check it out. Happy reading!
