En route to a tropical paradise, overworked and dedicated Aimee Myller is ready to begin her new life. But when the plane defects, the pilot, sexy Tristan Bress, needs to make an emergency landing in the heart of the Amazon rainforest.
With no way to reach civilisation, being rescued is their only hope. A slim one that withers away, desperation taking its place. Because death wanders in the jungle under many forms: starvation, disease, and fangs of beasts.

Forced to fend for themselves, Tristan and Aimee begin to forage for food and shelter. As they fight for survival, they grow closer. Despite knowing he’s off limits, Aimee can’t deny her attraction to Tristan. 

Tristan knows Aimee is the one woman he can’t have. But how can he fight love when she’s slowly becoming everything to him? 

*This read is recommended for 18+ due to romance and sex and mature themes.*

  • I really liked it!

    By KendraReads
    This book is a very good read, it offers more than most romance novels tend to these days. Great characters, and the story line itself really is great. I saw not ready for this book to end!

  • Amazing!

    By __adela__97
    This is one of the best romance books I’ve ever read. Very different from your average romance book. Could not put it down!
  • Insanely addictive!

    By Ronnie:)
    I never go into a book expecting to be yanked into the story and not released. I read a lot of books and most often I am either not interested in the story, or not a fan of the writers prose. This was not the case at all. I stayed up all night to finish this book. I couldn’t put it down. The ending had me in tears. Beautifully written. Will be reading again!
  • Wow

    By Zwolairdfam
    Wow. Just wow. Worth every moment to read.
  • Don't waste your time

    By NancyS32
    The leads in this book have absolutely no chemistry and the tacked on cheesy epilogue is just the garbage icing in this really terrible book.

  • Yea, I loved it.

    By pithepo
    This book just felt right. Great love story of two people facing incredible, frightening odds together. Seems crazy that the story is so solid with very little dialogue outside Aimee and Tristan. Yea, I loved it.
