Completed: Uncharted (On The Island 1.5) by Tracey Garvis-Graves
Impressions:Uncharted is the companion novella to Tracy Garvis’ On the Island.
For a novella, Garvis managed to pack in quiet a story. Told from multiple points of view and from two time lines, Uncharted tells the story of dot.com Millionaire Owen Sparks. It was interesting to read the perspective of someone who had chosen to inhabit the island While Anna and TJ’s experience of the island was all about their survival, For Owen the island was an escape, a break from civilisation. A place of unique exotic beauty and a sanctuary. However all good things must come to an end and the mystery surrounding “Bones” is finally revealed.
I adored the unconventional relationship between TJ and Anna in On The Island and It was a real treat to be able to pop back in to their lives, see how they were getting on and witness their “closure” of their time on the island.
Garvis-Graves Island series is a wonderful place to visit but I wouldn’t want to live there!
Completed: Breathe ( Sea Breeze 1) by Abbi Glines (New Adult edition)
Impressions: I have to admit that I was a little apprehensive that this new “sexed up” version wouldn’t live up to my memories of the original. The first time I read Breathe( incidentally my first ever Abbi Glines novel) I was struck by its sweetness and I just wanted to pull the protagonists in to a big group hug and protect them from the big bad world. I think that my (re)reading this in a single sitting is testament to the fact that Breathe has lost nothing following its new adult makeover.
Jax’s point of view was a wonderful addition to the story. I loved the small insights in to his thoughts and feelings as he fell for Sadie and fought the obstacles to their relationship.
Abbi’s trademark,hot flush inducing, steaminess was a tantalising treat. The additional adult content merged seamlessly with the original story. I never felt like the scenes were forced or added for impact alone. Despite the adult content, Glines managed to maintain Sadie’s sweetness and innocence.
Next Read: I’m planning to start Cora Cormack’s Faking It tonight
