Ship Wrecked: A Novel
by Olivia Dade
I love that both that mmc and fmc are curvy or normal sized. This takes place on set of Gods of the Gates and though these two met before they were cast briefly though quite steamily, they keep it professional.
Maria is a gorgeous Swede who will not let anyone try to change her body image or body. And Peter is a sexy bearded large man that needs this job to keep him in the leading man category. This is like a slow burn workplace romance but when the sex scene needs to be shot is a mento to a two liter.
Love that it’s told in both pov and can be read as a standalone.
❓What is a show that you watch?
Thank you avonbooks and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
Maria’s one-night-stand—the thick-thighed, sexy Viking of a man she left without a word or a note—just reappeared. Apparently, Peter’s her surly Gods of the Gates co-star, and they’re about to spend the next six years filming on a desolate Irish island together. She still wants him…but he now wants nothing to do with her.
Peter knows this role could finally transform him from a forgettable character actor into a leading man. He also knows a failed relationship with Maria could poison the set, and he won’t sabotage his career for a woman who’s already walked away from him once. Given time, maybe they can be cooperative colleagues or friends—possibly even best friends—but not lovers again. No matter how much he aches for her.
For years, they don’t touch off-camera. But on their last night of filming, their mutual restraint finally shatters, and all their pent-up desire explodes into renewed passion. Too bad they still don’t have a future together, since Peter’s going back to Hollywood, while Maria’s returning to her native Sweden. She thinks she needs more than he can give her, but he’s determined to change her mind, and he’s spent the last six years waiting. Watching. Wanting.
His shipwrecked Swede doesn’t stand a chance.
