This was actually a pretty good free book that I got because the blurb sounded interesting. It was strange though, because it started off as a really sexy and erotic story of a woman "trapped" for the weekend with her boss in a house they were "showing" and it was all so mysterious (their cars were vandalized). Someone was watching them and food just magically appeared in the fridge for them to between their heated bedroom activities.
It was steamy and a fun cat and mouse game of who's s

Love it

Loved this book but hated the alternate ending it was really bad who would do that. It's a good read and loved the story.

Stranded was written by a very talented lady. Cherry Shepard will soon become a household name, because she is very well written, has a very active and imaginative world inside her head, and her writing leaves her readers wanting more from her.

Stranded left me breathless and in need of a cold shower at times. Emma works for the wealthy and handsome Jenson. Jenson is the owner of a very prominent realty agency. One weekend when they are showing a house together outside of town their cars get vand

A lovely story from start to finish.

At the start you have the normal she won't be interested and he won't want me. But all it takes is some sexy undies and things really heat up and fast. Being Stranded might just be the best thing to happen to them. But being stuck in a house for the weekend it one thing but it's what happens when they get back to the real world, that things really start to get interesting. Can these two get any more stubborn? Yes, yes they can. Chuck in a ex that won't take i

An excellent read.
There was much more to this book than I first thought and I throughly enjoyed reading it.
I really liked how Emma stuck to her guns and resisted all of Jensen's charming ways for two years. She was attracted to him but knew it would not last and she would be out of a job. Now Jensen for reasons of his own vows never to fall in love and he can't help but know that Emma would do him in.
But there are things beyond their control and they end up stranded together for weekend with no

Steamy and smart.... It’s cold shower time after the hot love scenes early on in this one. The seemingly shallow hero has been brought to life, and we’re starting to understand he has depth. While the lovely heroine – sensible and controlled – has fallen apart, unable resist what she swore she would never do. There are lots of twists and difficulties in the path of these lovers. It’s a bit of a rollercoaster read, cleverly plotted. I’d recommend it as a good one to take to bed one night for the ...more

First of all I have to give my thanks for being sent a copy of this story. Loved it, had to read it despite the style of print format. :)

Totally recommend this author's works, if you like something a little edgy, sexy, fun and full of emotion. Thoroughly enjoyed it, as it left me wanting more. The next book to follow the little brothers relationship. :)

Hanging out now for Imperfect, the snippets/teasers are addictive, wanting more of these new characters. Thank you Cherry fora great story with
Oh Wow this was amazing love/hate relationship between Emma and Jensen they get stuck at an open house after someone tampers with there car's.

Stuck there for the weekend what will they do. To find out go read you seriously won't be disappointed I couldn't put it down. You won't believe who did it and why.

To sum it up

"Christian Grey is my dirty naughty book boyfriend"
"Jensen Kingsley has become my "I want to have him boyfriend".

Go read:)

Frustratingly delightful!I enjoyed this story. Thought Emma would play hard to get, but, surprisingly, she wanted to seduce Jensen immediately. Steamy love scenes that were erotic, yet, sensual. You could tell there were feelings between them even though Jensen tried to be a hard ass. I did not like the alternate ending....I I will not comment on that. I do wish there was a book 2....maybe a "crazy Cathy gets out of jail" storyline.... ;-)

Damn, Cherry is a wonder and writes the most fantastic Sweet candy romance and Stranded isn't any different. Stranded is everything you want in a good romance novel. It has the hot sex, the temptation and wanting not to mention the challenge. Cherry always writes her characters with so much detail that you feel like you are part of the story and know each character in the plot.
All I can say is I wouldnt mind to be Emma in this story... ABSOLUTELY a must read....

Spot on!

A man who was deeply hurt, thinks that he is unworthy of anyone's love. Enter a strong woman who loves the man, even with all his faults. Through out the course of the story you learn the reason behind the man's thoughts.
Love will find a way to be felt.

The alternate ending, Thank you for NOT ending the story that way!

I loved Stranded by Cherry Shephard! Who wouldn't want to be stranded with your boss, especially if he's as hunky and handsome as Jenson? This hot read will make you want to have your own Stranded adventure!

This story just seemed forced. Almost like she followed a manual. The broken hero when done right can be a great read. Unfortunately this book was to cliche for my taste.
