Honestly, this story was very unbelievable and not in a good way. It lacked transitions and was overall forgettable. It was an okay book to pass the time but i wouldn't recommend it. The majority of this book consisted of an unbelievable plot, no transitions, rushed actions scenes, uninteresting characters, and smut. I've liked previous books from this author before but this one really fell flat for me. 1.75 stars.

Everything about Max drives Kara nuts, he is stunningly handsome, a work-a-holic, and her boss. Max doesn't seem to be able to draw the line where Kara is concerned, often requiring her to cancel plans in order to work. He knows he should feel guilty, but he genuinely likes Kara even though he doesn't want to cross the line between employee and employer. That all changes though when the plane they are on crashes and the thought of dying has them both reaching out for the one thing the want, each ...more

I'm a big fan of the author, Milly Taiden and her awesome stories :) This was definitely no exception to that, this was a great, fast-paced story with suspense, passion, adventure filled with action; including carnal pleasures ones ;) and a 100% guaranteed happy ending for the main characters, Max and his Kara <3 I can't wait for the next story from this author! :)

This review was originally posted on my blog.

Not too long ago, I teased you with a gushing and sizzling hot review on Mr. Buff by April Angel. Remember that one? Well, April has done it again. If I thought for a minute that she couldn’t top that one, I was proven WRONG. This is how I felt after reading it the first time



This is how I felt after reading it a second time. Giggity.



I loved the story began by establishing that Max and Kara were already well acquainted with each other. They may be boss

Yet again April Angel burns the pages with Stranded Temptation.

This was hot on so many levels, dreamy and definitely a page turner.

I loved Max. He was sexy and the perfect dominant, strong male protagonist. I wanted to crawl under his skin and stay there for a damn long time.

The glimpse of suspense was also a new direction for April Angel and I really liked it.

I would've loved for this to be drawn out a lot longer and made into a novel. I wanted them to spend so much more time stranded that

LOVED it! Action, suspense, heat, a crash landing.... what else could you want in a book? I loved the office romance portion of this. Well, ok, so more of they want each other but Kara wants to brutally murder her boss because not only does he make her work all kinds of crazy hours but he makes her sex drive spin out of control, oh and she has to miss a cruise with her best friend to go off to South America with him. Twist and turns and not a moment of down time. Be prepared to pull an all night ...more

This is such an amazing read. Packed full of action, danger, teamwork, attraction, friendship, love and attempted murder, this is a book for everyone! Max is amazing. Kara works for Max. Max does everything he can so Kara cant date. Kara thinks Max is the boss from hell and her personal life is non existent. When they survive a plane crash they decide to take a chance with each other. Follow these two on a action packed adventure and find out if they survive.

As we know Milly Taiden is awesome in her writing skills. I was hooked from page 1. Kara is our everyday women that takes life by the horns. We get pulled in with the Sexy boss Max who as you read is a workaholic. So when the 2 of them have a business trip to go on all things come together and there are some twist and turns that will wow you and keep you reading to the end. Loved this and ready for the next book.

I really loved this story the characters are so relatable. Denying themselves who and what they want for the good of their careers , but you can only deny yourself so long before it affects you... Kara and Max were hot, funny and lovable.. This book was sexy,exciting and kept me hooked... Hope to see Brian gets hit by the love bug in the next book...

Disappointing

I love the premise. Plane crash romance books are a guilty favorite, so I was thrilled when I saw the synopsis of this book, especially since I have enjoyed milly taidens other books. Unfortunately, this book reads like a rough draft. Chapters 10 through 13 are so rough, it reads very disjointed, almost amateurish. There are also a ton of mistakes. Little things like your instead of you, extra words, confusing sentences, etc, that are fine occasionally, but are all over the place. I

I was warned before I bought this book that it would be a really hot read. I should've listened.

Kara was tired of having to do what Max wanted.She was really looking forward to her cruise with her friend. Needless to say that Max wanted her to go with him to find out who was taking money from his company. Kara was mad she wanted sex and was getting tired of working all the time.

Everything changes when they are stranded together. It is hot and fast. I wanted to be able to get in the ocean to calm

I strongly recommend not attempting to read this with kids running around like I did. It will leave you frustrated. And by frustrated I mean exactly what your dirty mind is thinking. LOL This is an erotica author I will defnitely be following from now on. I do so like my sex with an actual romantic storyline attached to it. (slight caveat for erotic poetry--no "story" necessary)

At first I thought this books was going to be the same classic, lusting after boss, work affair... Well no way. Nobody takes a classic story and makes it quite so hot!

Stranded on a beach with two survivalists and lots of lust. What could happen...

Loved this book!

Stranded Temptation is the latest book from Milly Taiden. In this story we meet Kara & her boss, Max & follow them on their danger filled road to happily ever after.

Kara has just about had it with her overbearing boss. He's got her working so much, she no longer has a life that doesn't involve the office. Now he's cancelled her much needed vacation in order to take her with him to South America for a business conference. This is the last straw for Kara & she's going to hand in her no

I am not a lover of the whole "billionaire" trope but when it's written by Milly Taiden, well I had to give it a try! I was not disappointed. Th same heat as her PNR titles, with action/adventure and some very Alpha moments from Max!

Kara is a workaholic. Not through choice- she just doesn't get much say in the matter when her boss Max works just as hard. However she finally has a holiday with her bestie to celebrate a milestone birthday. But Max sticks a spanner in the works and now she has to g

Hmm. It seems like if it's not a paranormal story, the hero and the heroine can't seem to get a break for a looooong time. Like their troubles are just starting with the first hiccup (i.e. the first attempt to take one of their lives). And it goes on for 3 -5 more times. Is there a chapter or word count requirement? Maybe I'm just used to the shorter paranormal stories of Ms. Taiden.

That being said...this is still a nice story. The chemistry between Max and Kara was really intense! And the story

Kara loves her job.
She works hard.
She works a lot.
Like a whole lot.
Work seems to be the only thing Kara has time for.
Thanks to her workaholic boss, Max.
A love life is pretty impossible because Max is always dishing out a new assignment or deadline on Kara at the most inconvenient of times.
Kara had planned a cruise with her bestie for her birthday but Mac quickly dashes those plans with an impromptu business trip.
Kara is extremely disappointed and frustrated.
But there's a method to the madness th

Kara loves her job, but lately, not her boss....Max doesn't want to work without her, or lose her to any other man. So, he keeps her busy at work- not only after hours, but when she's scheduled vacations as well. So when she finally got a cruise vacation scheduled, as well as the time off, and he nixed her plans yet again, she is ready to give her notice. But the kicker is- she's enamored with her boss. As he is with her, but for the sake of their jobs, neither one will give in to those feelings ...more

I love this story of Kara and Max. I think their love was brewing and simmering for so long that is didn't take a rocket scientist to see the chemistry. This book was just as captivating as Mr. Buff. Just like her cousin Kara got her fantasy and ideal man. Max knew he could allow Kara to go on her cruise because he wanted her to himself. So he made her go to South America with him and being stranded on a island, surviving a plane crash, drug cartel and being almost eaten by a shark

Stranded Tempation by Milly Tiaden
Max is the CEO and Kara works in his company as a analysis. I like that Kara isn’t just his receptionist and he’s the big bad CEO.
Max really likes Kara but can’t seem to figure out a way to date her without other staff becoming jealous or unprofessional towards Kara. Kara thinks Max over works her and after he plans a business trip on her 30th birthday cruise she decides she need more of a life and will quit to get that balance.

Great story about the too hot to handle alpha couple of Kara and Max as they work together to tackle an infamous drug cartel and three conspiring board members to stay safe and to run the company as it deserved to be run in the 21st century. Can the type A workaholic Max stop long enough to enjoy his mate and give her the break she needs from their 24/7 work schedule? Will they solve the mystery of who’s trying to kill her and have him declared incompetent? Read on if you want those questions an ...more

What a fun read. Milly gives you so much action and adventure and love and hot sex! Kara works for Max. He makes her work a lot because he is secretly in love with her and he doesn't want her to have any free time to "find someone else". He ruins her upcoming vacation by making her come to a meeting with him. While on that plane ride to the meeting the plane goes down and the adventure begins!

Sex, Suspense and Fun!

Of course this story was sexy and full of action, suspense and drama. Would a book written by Milly be anything else? With likeable main characters and villains you love to hate, you can't go wrong. The scene with Max's mother was so funny! Let your imagination to wild and grab your copy today. Happy reading.

It is just one misadventure after the other for Max and Kara. Kara isn’t happy when she has to cancel her Birthday cruise to go on a business trip with her boss. Beginning with a plane crash, it all goes down hill from there! Lots of near death experience. Lots of sex and a happy ending for Kara and Max.

If fated mates applied to contemporary romance novels, that's what youxd have here. This is the 2nd contemporary by Miss Taiden that I've read and while I prefer her PNR, I enjoyed this one too. There's a feisty heroine, an Alpha male, lot's of action & danger thrown in.

This one is a runaway train. Okay a hot, hot runaway train. Max and Kara are so hot for each other. And that office romance thing has Kara putting on the brakes. Then things get really dangerous. This is Ms Taiden in rare form. I volunteered to read and review an Advance Reader copy.
