The Island

(11 customer reviews)



One playboy billionaire. One gorgeous virgin. One deserted island…

The moment I lay eyes on Kendra Baxter, I know she has to be mine.

But the daughter of a Navy SEAL doesn’t take orders. She’s been taught skills, strength and integrity. And god, that’s hot.

So I do what any powerful billionaire CEO would do — I take her on as my intern and plan my aggressive takeover.

Only, fate has other ideas.

My perfectly laid out plan of attack is flawed, and our plane crashes on a deserted island.

Here, who I am doesn’t matter. Money and social power don’t matter. I’m not a CEO anymore. I’m just a man.

Something’s different, I’m different. I still want to claim her, but now I want to protect her too.

We are locked in a fight for survival, and maybe more.

And I will do anything and everything in my power to protect her and make her mine.

“If I have to be stranded on a deserted island, I’m glad it’s with you,” I told him as I ran my hand through the dark waves of his thick hair.

He seemed genuinely surprised. “Really?”

“Yes,” I said, then did what I was desperate to do. I kissed him.

He took my mouth over, the way he’d done every time we kissed. I wrapped my legs around his waist and found his erection even though the water was ice cold. He pressed it against my throbbing core, making both of us moan.

Everything I’d held back was breaking free. His every featherlight touch on my skin sent electricity zigzagging through me. The water was cold, but I was red hot.

    Totally romantic…4.5stars!

    The Island is a wonderful romance at a slow boil. In its center is a bit of suspense with kick-ass action, a hero and heroine who are highly competitive, irresistible banter, and all the feels.

    Eli Reed makes it known he wants Kendra Baxter from the start, but she’s the new intern and he’s her boss, and a workplace hookup is something that is off Kendra’s not-to-do list.

    But when they’re stranded on an isolated island off of Scotland and away from judgmental eyes, they can’t resist the chemistry between them. And when the sizzling action happens, it’s fireworks and unleashed passion. Eli and Kendra find true love and a happy existence. Their lives will forever change from the experience. But once rescued, can their new relationship survive the onslaught of family and public opinion?

    I loved Eli and Kendra’s characters. Ms. Ward gives us a feel-good story of two people who truly find love and decide at the end to follow their heart’s desire. The satisfying ending and epilogue is everything I look for in a romance and you don’t want to miss this one.

    I received and reviewed an ARC of this book.

    I absolutely loved this book and not just for the cover. Which I love. It was so refreshing to read something different than your typical billionaires bad boy books. It will have you on the edge of your seat, staying up late to finish, and reaching for some tissues at the end.
    Eli and Kendra had their ups and downs but learned to work together as a team to build the best relationship. And the epilogue was the best! I would definitely recommend this book to everyone.

    I am so thankful to be a part of the street team for this book. Thank you Alice for an amazing read!

    Really loved this story. Kendra and Eli have instant chemistry from the beginning, but don’t let anything really happen until they are stranded on an island for a couple of months. Love, trust, action, bravery…this story had it all.

    Billionaire and the Intern – but so much more!!

    Eli is a billionaire, but worked hard to become one. Rising at 4 AM – missing the NYC traffic, working out at the office, and grabbing breakfast all before most have risen for the day. Kendra is an intern from NC out of her element in NYC, yet able to handle herself thanks to her Navy SEAL father. Taught to require respect she is taunted with a big office then relegated to the cube farm. Fighting Eli’s advances, Kendra gains his respect through her smarts and hard work; they ultimately work out a truce.

    On a business trip to Scotland, they must fight for their lives first against a team of mercenaries, then against the elements as they crash land near an island off the coast. No tropical paradise here – it is cold, rainy and isolated. An exciting adventure and scintillating romance – but what will ultimately happen when their “forced union” no longer exists and their worlds are so far apart?

    Alice Ward never disappoints, and this story is no exception. Another highly recommended read from this author!!

    Kendra was only looking to gain insight into the workings of a financial conglomerate when she started her internship in NY, but in the end she gained a soulmate and it only took getting stranded on a deserted island to do it. This book was an awesome combination of great chemistry, wonderful characters and a storyline that kept the reader reading. I could not put this down. It is a book that I highly recommend.

    Eli is the CEO of Key Ventures Inc, and Kendra is hired on to be his intern. She comes from a very religious strict family and Eli is more of a young hot shot playboy. Kendra has standards that she intends to keep until she is married. Eli tries everything he can to change her mind. In order to do that he plans a trip to Scotland and on the way there they find themselves in a dangerous situation and their jet ends up crashing and they have to fight for survival on an island that is deserted. They have to learn to trust each other in order to survive. What actually happens on the island and are they ever able to find their way off? Read it to find all the answers. You won’t be disappointed!

    WOW. Action,adventure then romance! She made him wait! Prove himself! Well written. Strong characters. Thought it was great how things built up the HEA. Wonderful book.

    Humming right along as a very cute romantic story and then Wham! The crash,, and the new lifestyle on The Island is out of Eli’s skill set. Good thing Kendra is there. From playboy to one-woman man, love the interaction between these two. I really enjoyed the writing style of Alice Ward – well formed attractive characters with integrity and hidden depths. I liked the way the storyline kept up a solid pace going forward with plenty of action.

    Kendra is the 22 year old daughter of a Navy SEAL and is about to start her internship with Key Ventures.

    Eli Reed is the playboy CEO of Key Ventures and from the moment he sees Kendra he decides that she will be his next conquest.

    When Kendra rejects all his advances he decides that a business trip to Scotland would be the perfect opportunity for them to spend time together so that he can change her mind. What he didn’t expect was that their plane would crash and they had only themselves to rely on. For the first time in his life he can’t depend on his money and lifestyle to attract a woman and he must prove to Kendra who he is by his actions.

    I loved the interactions between the two as Kendra knows how to stand up for herself and won’t be just a fling for anyone.

    I love a great billionaire book and this one is up there!!! I like how Kendra wasn’t the type of girl who just gives in to Eli’s good looks and money. When they are stranded together on the Island that’s when they got to know the real eli and the real Kendra. I think the love story turned out to be sweet and very steamy. It was such a wonderfully written book and i read it really quickly because i loved it!

    I’m sitting here looking at the blinking cursor and realizing I haven’t quite recovered from the book yet. I’m wondering how do I put into words what I just went through and make it more meaningful than “it was good” or “it was hot” without giving away the whole plot of the story. There’s so much going on in this book that it almost feels like a two-book bundle. First, there’s everything that leads up to “the island”. Then the island and everything that happens after adds so much more dimension to the relationship between Eli and Kendra. They’re such a good match for each other. They’re alpha enough to keep one another on their toes and liberated enough that, with the right partner, they can give up control too. I loved watching them both learn how to gracefully let go of that control. I can’t wait to see what comes next from the talented mind of Alice Ward.
    I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.
