How can Ava Starr’s worst nightmare be Dax Miller’s dream come true?

For the past three years, Dax has been stranded on Lamarai Island with his stepsister and two tribes of cannibals. But now a beautiful girl named Ava has washed up on shore. After secretly reading her journal, he believes she is a perfect match to the girl of his dreams. He’s determined not only to keep her alive, but also to win over her heart by convincing her to forget about her past and the secrets that continue to haunt her.

Ava Starr has always been the epitome of bad luck, but she never imagined she would wake up and find herself on a cannibal-infested island with no memory of how she got there. The last thing she remembers is boarding a plane with her pilot boyfriend, Preston. But now he and his crew are missing, and she must find him before a tribe of hungry cannibals finds him first. But Ava’s troubles have followed her to Lamarai, where once again she’s surrounded by danger and people who want her dead. She finds herself caught in a web of deceit and soon discovers the answers to her mysterious past can be found in the most unlikely of places, and that no one is actually who they seem to be.

About the Author

Shannon L. Maynard lives in Colorado with her five girls where she is a legal assistant by day and an author by night. In between working and writing she can be found driving kids to soccer, folding mountains of pink laundry, or eating her weight in chocolate. Other addictions include shoe shopping, reading YA, and Australian and British accents (which may be partly to blame for her massive crush on Thor). If she had one wish it would be for more hours in the day to spend enjoying all of the above. Okay, everything except the laundry.

Shannon studied art and criminology before getting a license in cosmetology, but eventually wound up an expert daydreamer; a skill that occasionally leads to getting lost while driving, but has been a huge asset to her love for writing. Her debut novel WICKED LUCK is set to release June 2015 and is the first book in the Wicked Luck Trilogy.

***I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.*** I have to say this book pleasantly surprised me when I started reading it. We jump right into the story with Dax as he rescues a girl who has washed up on the shore. I'm instantly curious as to how he seems to know her and this helps me become deeply invested in the story. This book holds many secrets and mysteries, and while I became frustrated with myself in trying to solve and understand the tangles and web of lies, it excited me because it has been a while since I last read something where something was not blatantly obvious. I enjoy trying to understand what motivates the characters and why there is deceit and lies. I like getting to the bottom of things. The author was creative in creating her flashbacks of the past, having Ava either remembering something or having Dax read it in the entries of Ava's journal. The information gained from these flashbacks was crucial to understanding the mysteries of Ava's past. Although I have to say that Ava's character exasperated me to no end. She's weak and fragile, but I think with Dax's help she will become stronger and won't settle for less than what she deserves. This story is intricately woven and I give Wicked Luck 5/5 Platypires!
