Undeniable lust and a fierce Miami storm bring sexy strangers together at The Hotel Del Santos for a passion filled night.
Stephanie, still reeling from a failed marriage, needs a break from the past. She decides to take her friends’ advice and finds a perfect stranger for a night of no-strings-attached, smoking hot sex.
Jason, a wealthy Seattle builder has the worst luck with love. Swearing he would never allow another woman to get under his skin, Jason decides a life of casual sex is just fine with him. While watching Stephanie’s sexy stilettos click across the lobby floor he zeros in on his next conquest.
Cut off from the outside world, the lives of these two strangers collide and burn with desire when stranded in the perfect storm. Both are content with the idea of sharing a glorious one-night stand together, that is, until they go their separate ways.
Stephanie was on a business trip in Miami when she met Jason Royce in the hotel's elevator. He had followed her into it after spotting her from a distance Both of them ended up trapped inside the elevator when a power outage occurred. Jason had a chance to comfort Steph, who was frightened out of her wits and then the story takes on from there.
It's a short read but it's enough for me to take a liking to both characters. Both of them had their story to tell. Steph's was divorced and Jason was wealthy but had his fair share of history with women who only wanted him for his money. He's just so sweet and really...who wouldn't like him? The story just pulls you in and before you know it, it ends! Now I have to wait for the next book to find out more about this couple.
Overall, Marooned in Miami is a steamy romance read which you can simply finish it in one sitting. If only it were longer... Looking forward to Lusted in Vegas
4/5 for Marooned in Miami.
