Hey Everyone!

I'd like to introduce you to Camilla Isley, who is on tour with her latest novel, A Sudden Crush.

Hi! I’m a writer of romantic comedy, cat’s lover, coffee addict, and shoes hoarder.Besides writing, I love reading (surprise, surprise), cooking—and eating—especially pasta, going to the movies and obviously ordering a gigantic bowl of popcorn, and watching too much bad TV.I understand that mosquitoes play a role in the ecosystem as a part of other animals’ diet, and I don’t want to starve all those frog princes out there, but I could really live without them.

A Sudden Crush by Camilla Isley

Joanna Price is a city girl with the perfect life. She loves her job as a book editor, she just married Liam, high profile bestselling author and the man of her dreams, and she’s headed to the Caribbean to enjoy two weeks of paradise for her luxurious honeymoon.
Connor Duffield is a gruff, grumpy rancher from the Midwest. He is a country boy who has a no-nonsense approach to life, more scars than he’d like to admit, and he hates city girls.

So it’s just a misfortune they have to sit next to each other for a six hour plane ride. Even more so when their flight is caught in the perfect storm and Joanna wakes up stranded on a desert island with Connor, the very man she hoped she would never have to see again.

Why are they alone on this forsaken island? What happened to Joanna’s husband?

When her dream honeymoon turns into a hilarious tropical nightmare, Joanna’s first thought is survival. However, she and Connor will quickly discover just how boring paradise can be. As the days turn to weeks, and then months, this mismatched pair will have to learn how to coexist and how to resist the sparkles of an attraction they weren’t prepared to feel.

When they are finally rescued will Joanna’s marriage be saved as well, or will the life she knew and loved be in ruins?
 

Hey! Here's my review.

I loved Camilla Isley's first novel - I wish for you - so much that when I saw the blog tour for her second novel, I signed up without even reading the blurb. I then read it without glancing at the blurb and was totally sideswiped by the plane crash. I wouldn't have been if I'd read the blurb - but I think I enjoyed it even more because I didn't know what was coming. 

What begins as another fairytale romance - an enemies to lovers romantic comedy (with a cute baby monkey side kick), doesn't play out quite as I expected. The story doesn't remain in fairytale land, making us face the reality of what happens after they are rescued from this deserted island.

I loved Joanna. She is honest, if naive, and always looks for the positive in a situation - a bit like me. She is the kind of girl I would love to be friends with. 


I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.
