After a month of hot, seductive emails and sexually charged chat room trysts, Miranda Mitchell is convinced she's met the man of her dreams and accepts an invitation to his island in the Caribbean. But when the private seaplane makes an emergency landing on the shore of a deserted island, Miranda finds herself alone with the very irritating, yet very sexy pilot who seems hell-bent on making her deepest sexual fantasies come true.

Aidan Landon agrees to field his womanizing brother’s business emails while Andrew’s out of town, but when Miranda’s personal email arrives, he can't stop himself from replying in his brother’s place. What starts off as a sexual game soon becomes an oasis of addictive pleasure. So when Andrew invites Miranda to his vacation resort, Aidan takes matters into his own hands--by taking Miranda to his own private island in the Caribbean.

Now Miranda has to decide which brother is meant to be her Caribbean Wild.

Ever put yourself out there—you know, really out there? And you know it could lead to the best night of your life, or the worst embarrassment in the world, but you do it. Now imagine this scenario on a Caribbean island. Are you ready to face your apprehension and possibly meet the man of your dreams? Then you need to read Caribbean Wild to see what Miranda does. You won’t want to miss it.

I like a good escape story. Ms. Chase’s story doesn’t disappoint. Her characters are lively and intriguing. The plot is a bit quick, but engaging. Because this is a short story, it was a bit hard to get a handle on the beauty of the island. I wanted more details! If I had any other complaints, I think I’d like a longer story to see what happens after the story, but I can wait for the sequel.

Miranda’s been seeing a guy online. Now I realize this isn’t a new plot line, but Ms. Chase keeps it fresh. Early on, you come to respect Miranda’s decision. She’s been through a lot in life and she wants someone who wants her for who she is. The reader can relate. I liked how she grew through the story and became more of her own person.

The hero, whose ID I can’t reveal, is a nice little plot twist. At first, I didn’t like him much, but as the story unfolded, I accepted him more and wanted to see him get his rewards. His motives may be ulterior, but it’s for her best interest and what reader can stay immune to a hunky hero bent on pleasure?

Now if you want a story with a sexy hero, a perky heroine, and lots of plot twists, then you need to read Caribbean Wild. I give this story 4 cherries.
