Review : Swept Away Volume One (Swept Away #1) by J. Haymore

He is everywhere. He surrounds me, wends his way under my skin. I can’t escape his strength, his intensity, his presence.

I’m trapped.

There’s nowhere to run.

Nowhere to hide.

But even if I could escape… would I be strong enough to leave?

I needed something — something big — to get myself out of the rut I’d fallen into after the car accident that killed my sister. This sailing trip was meant only to mark a new chapter in my life. Until Ethan Williams stepped on board.

Ethan radiated confidence. His darkly handsome good looks and ocean-blue eyes mesmerized me. But it was the way he looked at me that drew me in. He wasn’t looking at my past or at my scars, but the real me behind all that baggage I was trying so hard to leave behind.

But Ethan had secrets—dark, dangerous secrets. I was trapped in the middle of the ocean in a tangle of lies, sex, and violence. The problem was, I was happy to be trapped forever…if it meant I could have him.

Warning: Swept Away is not for people under 18.


My review :

*** ARC provided by NetGalley for an honest review ***

Swept away is a good mix of suspense, hot sex and sexual tension, mystery. It was intriguing and the read was so fluid, i can’t put it down.

Volume one:

Five people on a boat : Tara, Ethan, Kyle, Mick and Narini, set off on a catamaran on a sailing trip to Hawaii.
They all have different motives for being in this trip, but not without a lot of mysteries behind all the characters
It was a sucker punch beginning, with Tara and her accident on the store, where a man took a bullet for her.
For her, it was a trip to enjoy her free time before she begins her career as financial analyst. She’s such a kind person, naive, and so brave. She’s more tougher that she seemed to be.She couldn’t explain, understand what happened in this trip and it was making her so endearing.
Ethan, it was some «  holidays »; i forget to say this man is a billionaire and successful, fucking hot, handsome,possesive, mysterious and totally drawn to Tara, in a strange way for two people who never met.
Mick is also intriguing, we don’t know very much about him.
Kyle is Tara’s best friend and her anchor. He was always here for her and he helped her to be hired on this trip.
Narini is the captain of this boat and is involved in a relationship with Kyle.

I don’t know how describe it, but it was totally captivated by the story, as Tara was attracted to Ethan.
And oh, my these two were totally hot for each other. Tara was drawn to him, and this man was owning every place he went. He had presence which was overwhelming. Tara was trapped into Ethan intense behavior. Sparks turned into a fire of lust, desire, craving for each other.

But there wasn’t only love on this boat and we can sense that the storm is coming.
A first accident happened and we can see how tough, vivacious she could be. She handled stress in a very good way.
In a few pages, i was immediately get in the story, like i couldn’t stop reading it, and when you are so captivated, and BAM! , a cliffhanger, like a slap on the face! J.Haymore can write beginnings and endings that makes you crave for more! 5 five stars for the first volume!
