Blurb: New York cop Sherry Abandonato cashes in her savings and dashes to Ningaloo in remote northwest Western Australia to find her sister who disappeared ten days ago. The only one with the skill to guide her to Derremawan is Mason Hayward, once an official guide with a reputation for getting people out of trouble, but now the town’s bad man.
In a searing afternoon of unexpected passion, Mason strikes a bargain. He’ll get her to Derremawan, if she agrees to go there with him unconditionally, on his terms and his conditions.
Sherry is astonished to find herself agreeing to the insane bargain, and worse, responding positively to the idea of three days of Mason Hayward dictating terms out under the Australian sun.
Review: Crocodile Dundee meets Jewel of the Nile. Sexy, exciting, a mysterious bloke with a deliciously kinky side. Okay you can see I really like this story. Ms. Cooper-Posey does a wonderful job of setting the scene and dropping you into the story in the middle of the action. Mason is the quintessential sexy Aussie. There were moments when I totally loved Sherry—and a few times I wanted to smack her. lol The best part of the story comes in the second half. I found the beginning a bit predictable, but by the end of the book I was pleasantly surprised that I hadn’t guessed the outcome.
Now for the issues in this story. Repeat words were like mini speed bumps. Her clenching womb became a bit of a joke for me. While the sex is hot, there wasn’t much variation in how it was described. Yes, location and position changed, but the same words made the sex become redundant, so it wasn’t as titillating by the end.
