There are certain tropes that are like catnip to me, and I’ll ignore any red flags that pop up in the blurb. Am I a fan of second chance romances, especially ones with so much time since the breakup? Not at all. Do I absolutely love reality show romances and forced proximity? YES and YES. Don’t ask me why, I don’t know the answer, lol. But it’s one of those things that lures me in every time. Brenda Rothert is still a newer-to-me author, so I’m excited to check out this standalone and get another taste of her writing. I’m pretty sure I’m either gonna love it or hate it, but that’s sometimes where you discover the best books. Exiled releases on April 26th – details below!
Pro hockey player Archer Holt is taking his charm and swagger from the ice to the…sand? One of sixteen players competing to be the last man standing on a new reality show, he’s all in until he finds out the meaning behind the show’s title—Exiled.
Before I was a pro hockey player, I was an Eagle Scout. I can tie knots, build shelters and fish like nobody’s business, making me the perfect choice to represent my team on a reality show set on a primitive tropical island. I can endure scorching heat, tough competitions and torrential rainfall—no problem. But when I find out who my partner is, I’m not so sure I’ll survive being stranded on an island with her.
Archer Holt broke my heart eight years ago. Now he’s rich and famous, and I’m a high school English teacher in our hometown. When I’m offered the chance to compete for half a million dollars by outlasting fifteen other teams on an island with my selfish jerk of an ex, I jump at it, because that money can change not just my life, but my family’s. Besides, I’m long over Archer.
Or so I thought.
