From the bestselling HarperCollins author of Burqualicious, Balilicious, Latinalicious and Amazon new adult romance bestseller Before He Was Famous

"Becky does it again, delivering a searingly hot, emotionally intense and brilliantly written romantic love story. I loved it." - Sarah Alderson (author of Hunting Lila, Fated, The Sound)

When her rock star boyfriend breaks things off out of the blue, Alyssa applies to hit reality TV show Deserted and to her shock she gets through. Abandoned on a remote island with a bunch of strangers and none of the luxuries she's become accustomed to, it's not long before an undeniable attraction to the mysterious Joshua starts complicating things even further.

Joshua's different to everyone she's ever known - a traveller, a man with no plan, a world away from the celebrity life she's left behind. As a series of challenges test their wits and weaknesses, things start heating up in paradise. But in a game designed to break people down, it soon becomes clear that Joshua is hiding a painful secret - one he won't risk anyone finding out.

Struggling to know where she belongs, Alyssa will have to choose - a life she once loved that wants her back, or a brand new reality that heartbreakingly may just have its limits.

"It's a heartwarming journey that left me smiling. Definitely another awesome romantic love story by the talented Becky Wicks, and a perfect end-of-summer read that's sure to please!" - The Autumn Review

"I thought this would be a simple fluff and fun beach read, but this contemporary romance had some great thoughtful parts while still being sexy - insta-lust and high heat level scenes - yep, apparently it is possible to avoid cameras! Definitely entertaining!" - eBook Escapes

"Becky does a marvellous job of bringing her characters to life, you know as soon as you start reading that this is going to be a great read, her characters are not flat on the page, they pop out (in some cases I wish they did!) of the page and you feel yourself immersed in the story." - Random Redhead Ramblings

"We saw the relationships formed, the alliances made, the betrayals, and the back stabbing. We got to know each member of the island and they each had their own story to tell. It felt like I was a part of their circle and at the same time, I was trying to figure out who to trust and who I wanted to see win." - Three Chicks and their Books
