Beyond the Sea

Beyond the Sea - Keira Andrews BR with my ladies Els, Wendy and Karlijn

I’m glad Keira Andrews decided to not go all angsty on us. No massive amounts of inner struggle, no judgmental family members, nope, nothing. That was awesome.

This book also had some really hilarious moments. I totally snorted tea out of my nose.

Troy decides to quit the boy band he is in. He caught his brother and fellow band member using again, and he’s done. He gets a private yet to take him home. Pilot Paula and co-pilot Brian will fly him home.

But instead of arriving in LA, the plane crashes on a deserted island.


The pilot Paula dies on impact, but Brian and Troy need to do everything in their power to survive. They need to make some sort of shelter, find water, build a fire, find food.

These guys encountered all kind of problems on their ‘adventure’, but it also brought them closer. I loved how they got along from the start. Troy and Brian were both very easy going people. And they talked about stuff. No unnecessary fights or arguments. These men worked together to make the most out of their situation.

But even though this book is great, I have to admit, I wouldn’t have minded if it had been a little longer. Because a lot happens and I felt the relationship itself could have used more development.

The first part where they were trying to survive were awesome and felt so realistic. But because they were really trying to survive there wasn’t a lot of character or relationship development. So I was kind of waiting for that. The attraction came out of nowhere for me.

We got a little bit of everything. We got a little messing around, a little sex, a little dirty talk, a little bit of feelings. And I wanted more. I especially wanted more dirty talk. Oh yes please.

Still, this was a great book and I really enjoyed it. And we even got a happy epilogue, I love those.

I need to Google some stuff now on how to survive on a deserted island. I don’t know shit, I’ll be dead in a day.
