    As with most novellas I found this one way too short! I love this series so any time I see a new one I pretty much read them in one sitting and this one being only 54 pages, it only took about an hour. But the thing is, as with most of Ms. Sorenson's books, it was pretty action packed. Looking forward to reading the next book which features Abby, the main character from this book sister.

    Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC.

    I LOVED IT!

    ISLAND PERIL is my first exposure to Jill Sorenson's work....and WOW!...I LOVED IT! I'll definitely be reading the rest of the AFTERSHOCK series.

    Ella Hammond is on a kayaking, hiking, and camping trip with her sister and 17 year-old niece...and things are going along well, right up until Ella and Paul (the sexy, apparently out-of-her-league) guide who takes the 3 women a 4 mile jaunt across the Pacific to San Miguel, an uninhabited island, to explore caves, hike, and see the wildlife. Abby and Brooke (sister and her daughter) have to turn back, leaving Ella and Paul alone.

    The suspense and intrigue built beautifully as they find evidence of smuggling and are soon on the run for their lives. I'm not giving anything away here-- all of this information is in the book blurb. I so enjoyed watching the intensity of their situation bring Ella and Paul together. Seems like the crush of fight-or-flight responses do a lot to bond people together, heighten chemistry that's already there, and make attraction move into the fast lane. It's completely believable that they'd keep each other warm, that the rescue came when it did, that the smoking hot encounters happened so "quickly." Yep. I'm a believer.

    While the story is told in Ella's point of view, I found understanding Paul to be easy. We never really knew his thought process...but it showed in his actions, his expression, and Ella's ability to read him. Yeah, some of it was guessing, but Ms. Sorenson did a splendid job writing that male character. He seemed true and consistent to himself throughout. He was simply too noble, too real, too decent to not have any angst over the chemistry between them.

    Can't wait to read the two full length novels in the Aftershock series. Kudos to Jill Sorenson!

    Sensuality Rating: Hot
    Language: Rated R (but nothing overly crass or offensive....just language one would expect from a contemporary with drug smugglers and bullets flying)

    Highly recommended to fans of romantic suspense who don't mind hot sex scenes and language. ~~Kristin

    An everyday kayaking tour on the Channel Islands State Park, takes on a entirely new twist when they come across drug smuggling cargo. Stranded on an uninhabited island, the sexual chemistry flies while they are pursued by angry drug traffickers.




    Island Peril is a quick novella short read. There is lots action, steamy sexual chemistry and not much room for much more. For an easy, fast paced, entertaining read this book hits the spot.
