Terrified of flying, Isa Delgado is determined to conquer her fears. Agreeing to accompany a dog on her "freedom flight" from the shelter, Isa gets ready for the journey of her life, boarding a plane with a sexy and rugged pilot.

Silicon Valley CEO Nate Peters volunteers his time and personal jet for animal rescue missions. Flying the stunning and compassionate Isa is just an added perk of the job. But when the plane malfunctions over a forest fire, Isa's biggest fear comes true as they crash into the fiery woods.

After crashing in a remote area, Nate and Isa must find sanctuary in the midst of the forest as flames threaten to engulf them. Nate and Isa fight for survival as they seek comfort in each other's arms. With time running out, will they outrun the fire that burns around them while igniting the desire that heats up between them?

This was a quick read but enjoyable. I love stranded together plot lines because characters can either bond really well or be at each other’s throats. In this case, Isa and Nate bond and find solace in each other. They do fall in love quickly (within a week) but Rachel Lacey does a pretty good job of fleshing out their characters and their romance. The survival aspects were done really well. There was plenty of tension from external problems (a nearby forest fire, finding food, getting lost, etc.) while also plenty of down time for Isa and Nate to get to know one another. I also appreciated that their survival skills weren’t just something they magically knew: Isa was a huge fan of survival TV shows and Nate had a basic grasp on what do if his plane ever went down. Isa was a really sweet and likable heroine who just kept on going no matter what got in her way. She was strong, determined, and knew what she wanted. She never let Nate hide behind his excuses or fear. I wanted Maya, the dog, to have a stronger presence or bonding moment. She’s the whole reason they’re on the plane to begin with and it’s obvious from the beginning that Isa will end up keeping her. That being said, I kind of wanted her to go into protective mode and be this great companion for them. She has one or two moments but that’s about it.

I was so happy when I heard that Rachel Lacey was coming out with a new series. I really enjoy her books and wouldn't mind more of them. Then I read the blurb and I going to like this? Well to answer that question, yes, I am going to like this. Crash and Burn is a quick read that is a nonstop thrill. Now, you know it will end well because it's a romance, but that didn't take away from the fact that you don't know what or how it's going to happen. I found myself more then once crossing my fingers hoping that they would come out of this okay. Silly, I know, but I really couldn't help myself. You really will enjoy both Isa and Nate. You'll also like Maya too. As a whole I really enjoyed the story and felt the caring and love from both Isa and Nate. Considering the fact that the main story takes place in about five days you believe their feelings. Something that's not always easy with short books. This quick moving story is very believable in fact. You will feel like you are there with them running from the fire. Scary! Yes, I really enjoyed the story but I think I would have liked it to be a little longer. Not that I'm sure it would have worked as well if it was. Weird I know. I just really liked them and would have liked to know or spend more time with their families. It's the only negative and I'm not even sure if it is one.

Stranded! We embark on a ride of adrenaline rushed panic giving way to lusty connections being forged in the face of danger. The characters are well developed and grab your attention from the start. The plot, while obviously dealing with a short time-frame is face paced and satisfying. I enjoyed taking this journey with Isa & Nate! Of all the days Isabel Delgado has to decide to face her fear of flying and actually get on an airplane, it has to be the day sexy CEO Nathaniel Peters has to make a crash landing! Just her luck!! Isa set out to accompany a dog on her flight from an animal shelter to her rescue home in Oregon. Nate was on his way from one business meeting to another and volunteered his time and plane to do the transport. When a mechanical issue causes him to have to bring the plane down, they are left to forage the countryside to try to make shelter and survive until a rescue crew can find them. Only problem is, they crashed near a forest fire and before long, they are running for their lives!

Isa never dreamed that her first-ever flight would end in a crash in the middle of a forest fire. So much for overcoming her fear of flying! I enjoyed Isa, Nate and Maya's adventure as they tried to find their way out of the burning forest. The epilogue was my favorite part. I can't wait to see what is next in the Stranded series. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary Advance Reader Copy.

Isa is determined to get over her fear of flying. She's applied for a job that requires frequent traveling. In preparation for the job Isa volunteers to take Maya, a rescue dog, to her forever home. Nate, a CEO, loves to fly in his downtime and offers his services for the freedom flight. While flying around a wild fire, Nate's plane suddenly loses power and they're forced into a crash landing. The "softest" place Nate can land the plane is over the water. Using the parachute helps the landing not be as rough, but they only have seconds after landing to get out of the plane before it sinks. Isa soon realizes flying is the least of her worries! Since they had to fly around the wild fire, search and rescue won't know exactly where to look for them. They have very little food, no way to make a fire, cold/wet clothes, a slowly encroaching wild fire, wild animals, and they are STRANGERS! I believe this was the best Rachel Lacey novel I've read to date! The action, the fear, the hunger were palpable. I loved the fast paced adventures! I enjoyed the talks and moments they shared. Nate's realization that being a CEO and making more money than he could ever spend was NOT as important as family and love, was life changing. Holding Isa and making sure they made it home so he could take her on a date, was more important than his next breath. Of course, Maya was an awesome dog! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

This was a great adventure book with some sparks thrown in as well. Isabel Delgado had to fight her fear of flying to take a rescue husky Maya to her new home, taking her on her freedom flight as she was free from the pound. Nate Peters, who is a CEO & flies for relaxation & for fun donates his time & plane for these animal rescues. During the flight they have engine trouble over a forest fire but he is able to crash land the plane. They have to rely on each other to make it through the forest & get ahead of the flames. They both have qualities needed for their task & sparks fly between them while they work hard to survive. I loved how they both listened to each other & worked together to make it out alive.

Sizzling Attraction! Isa And Nate's story pulled me in, left me a little bit breathless, and kept me in its grasp until the end. This was a smoking hot romance, beautifully written, intensely suspenseful and the chemistry between Isa and Nate is electric. As these two strangers survive a plane crash, they then realize they are in the path of a forest fire. As they struggle to find their way, through the wilderness to safety, they must face, hunger, desperation, suspense and danger at every turn. Their sizzling attraction to one another comes alive, as they struggle to survive. You don't want to miss their journey. A fantastic story about survival, romance, and perseverance. This had a fantastic mix of suspense, heart and a whole lot of sweetness. Awesome story. Loved it!
