Overview

From the New York Times bestselling author of Rumor Has It, Rescue My Heart, and the Lucky Harbor novels...

Statistically speaking, these years are supposed to be the sexual highlight of Dorie Anderson’s life. So where are the highlights already?

One phone call has turned Dorie’s dead-end life into an adventure: she’s won a trip on a singles cruise to Fiji. With her cutest outfits packed and the Love Boat theme in her head, Dorie boards—and soon meets two irresistible men: a pro baseball player with an irresistible Texas drawl, and the ship’s dark and mysterious French doctor, Dr. Christian Montague. She’s sure to fall head-over-heels in no time. She just never expected to do it so quickly, or so literally, tripping over her luggage.

With her foot twisted and her ego deflated, Dorie’s dream vacation is about to take the biggest detour yet. A violent storm has wrecked the ship and cast everyone ashore. A deserted island would be the perfect setting for a steamy romance, if something sinister wasn’t lurking. Whose alluring arms will Dorie run to? Being stuck never felt so…liberating.

    Exciting Romp!

    Dorie Anderson receives a phone message out of the blue saying she won a week in Fiji along with a few others. She needed an escape from her duller than dull life. It was perfect timing. Among a cast of exciting and sexy characters she is shipwrecked thanks to an unexpected storm where someone is mysteriously missing.and the fun begins..There is the fight to stay alive, suspense in wondering who "did it", and lots of juicy passion to keep the reader sitting on the edge of her seat. This is truly an exciting, fun, sexy read that will keep you entertained for hours.

    Silly shipwreck romance

    Dorie Anderson's life is just not turning out as great as she had hoped. She is at a dead in job in the retail world, when really what she wants is to be a fashion designer. Then consider her love life, or lack of in any case. All in the blink of an eye Dorie is on her way to Fiji on a cruise with not one but two hunky men who have caught her eye. Things turn sour when the yacht ends up in a terrible storm leaving them shipwrecked. At least she has sexy doctor, Christian to tend to her needs.

    The Trouble with Paradise is not a terribly deep story. If you are looking for something simple and cute to pass the time then this is the book for you. Dorie is a sweet heroine who has a tendency to stumble her way into things. She is a very klutzy heroine, but she has luck on her side. She may not know it, none-the-less.

    I liked the premise of the story. Girl looking for adventure and romance finds more than she can handle when her vacation boat ends up shipwrecked. I thought that more time would be spent on the island. It doesn't actually happen until two/thirds through the book. There is a little bit of complication because one of the crew members ends up missing and the characters don't know if it was foul play or not. That mystery was a bit distracting from the romance between Dorie and Christian. Also, I never understood why Christian kept pushing Dorie away when he was obviously drawn to her. Overall this was an easy read and was a nice way to pass the time.

    A lighthearted contemporary romance

    In Los Angeles shy Dorie Anderson works in the junior fashion at Shop-Mart when she receives a call from All Continental Resorts that she has won a free trip to Fiji. She informs her boss and her mom that she is leaving on vacation.---------- At the dock in Fiji where the Sun Song anchors, Dorie is tongue tied when she meets ¿baseball cutie¿ Andy Hutchinson. She takes a step back and trips over her luggage spraining her ankle. Before she can get up off the plank, a man rushes past her shouting emergency. Dorie goes to see the ship doctor who is the same man who sprinted past her. Dr. Christian Montague assumes she is just like his emergency with a paper cut. However, he changes his mind when he sees her limp. She is tongue tied again and is embarrassed to mention the two splinters on her butt.---------- At the meet and greet gala, Andy makes it clear he wants Dorie. She runs to the bathroom when he asks her out. She meets guests Brandy and Cadence who are both nice. They discuss the men on board with Brandy picking crewman Bobby, Cadence the captain Denny, and Dorie the grumpy doctor. A storm devastates the ship. Christian holds Dorie to comfort her as she is scared, but he insists he doesn¿t mix business with pleasure. The ship drifts to a deserted island, but Bobby is missing. As the doc and the clerk fall in love, something remains amiss about what happened.----------- The ensemble cast consists of unique individuals especially fully developed is the lead make and the three females. The whodunit is fun to follow though it is more in the background to the entreatingly changing relationship between the lead couple. Although the climax is too fast and Dorie shows no after effect from a concussion, fans will enjoy this vacation romance.---------- Harriet Klausner

    Decent story, but not $8 worth. Did they wrap up what happened to the bad guys? Either I missed it or the author didn't deem it important enough... The end seemed rushed. Not one of Jill's best...

    Hot and Sexy

    The Trouble With Paradise by Jill Shalvis is a fun filled, sexy and spectacular romance. ____________ Dorie Anderson wanted a break into fashion design but it has been tough going. She is working at a dead end job at Shop-Mart. When she wins a chance of a lifetime trip to Fiji she can't pack her bags fast enough. Her first boarding of the ship Sun Song lands her on her butt in front of two very handsome men. ___________ The two men vying for her attention are a pro baseball player and the ships doctor. But when Dorie sees a man being pushed overboard and the ship caught in a dangerous storm, her dream trip takes a bad turn. _____________ Dr. Christian Montague is just putting in his time working as the ships doctor. Until his contract is up he is stuck catering to these tourists. Christian cannot afford to be attracted to a passenger but there is something about the unconventional Dorie that catches his eye. When they share a passionate kiss it really rocks his world. _____ When the storm causes them to crash on a deserted island. Everyone is weary of each other, especially when they realize someone from the crew is missing. Which one of them did it??? _________ Christian and Dorie's island adventure is filled with hot and searing passion. Watching them try to stay alive and fight their attraction is pulse pounding on all sides. Trying to figure out who done it will catch you off guard. But the romance will make you believe there is someone out there for each of us. Great job again Jill Shalvis.
