New Review Surviving Raine, Shay Savage
As the captain of a schooner catering to the elite on the Caribbean Seas, Sebastian Stark does his best to avoid any human encounters. Interacting with people isn’t his thing, and he prefers the company of a bottle of vodka, a shot glass, and maybe a whore. There’s no doubt he’s hiding from a checkered past, but he does well keeping everything to himself…
…until the night his schooner capsizes, and he’s stuck on a life raft with one of the passengers.
Raine’s young, she’s cute, and Bastian would probably be into her if he wasn’t suffering from alcohol withdrawal. As the days pass, DTs, starvation, and dehydration become the norm. Even the most closed person starts to open up when he thinks he’s going to die, but when she realizes their traumatic pasts are connected, it’s no longer the elements that have Bastian concerned.
He has no idea how he’s going to Survive Raine.
Evelyn’s review: 5 stars
What the hell did I just read?? This is crazy, different and captivating. I felt like Robinson Crusoe met the Hunger Games meets super crazy sexy primal alpha. Wow sounds like a clusterfuck right??
It’s so not! It’s amazing. It’s dark, and intriguing, eliciting so many emotions from me. I loved this! I have other Shay Savage books on my Kindle and I am going to get started right away. One major thing I learned is Savage is an amazing author that has a ton of story to tell.
This book comes together in a way that is high adrenaline pumping. I loved the dark alcoholic Bastian and all of his troubled thoughts. This entire book is told from his P.O.V. A whole book in a man’s perspective….What? Who does that?? Shay Savage that’s who. She puts out a man’s voice with such ease, it comes off very believable and as a woman reader I was attached completely to both the male and female character because of this.
Up until the very end this book keeps you engaged. There is another one in the works and I can’t wait to get my greedy paws on it.
