#Review Castaways by Lily Harlem @lily_harlem


Olivia Bailey is up for The Challenge. Why the heck wouldn’t she be? With mariner qualifications piled high, engineering experience to rival someone twice her age, she’s ready to take on the mighty Pacific Ocean and win. 

But what about her fellow crew? Five guys, four nationalities. A billionaire’s heir who likes to take charge in every aspect of life, an outback expert with a heart-stopping smile, a Spanish chef with mouthwatering moves and sexy twins who reveal themselves slowly, until it matters, then they act fast. 

An adventure was what Olivia wanted, it’s certainly what she gets. Because things at sea happen in a heartbeat, friendships grow, tempers heat and desire flares. But what about when it all upends? When the unexpected happens? Will they pull together, or will fear drag the crew of Temptress apart? 


What a stonking read from Lily Harlem. The first book in The Challenge series, Castaways takes us on a sea bound adventure with Olivia and her five sexy crew mates.

What I loved most about this book was how different it was to other Reverse Harem’s I’ve read, the settings being completely new and different completely testing the characters mentally and physically.

Olivia is a likeable character who is smart, sexy and keeps her cool in a crisis and boy do these guys have a crisis. The men in her life have very distinct personalities which is something I love in these books.

The book ends setting up nicely for book two which I’m eager to read and already have ready to go.

I'm BrizzleLass, I have Bipolar and have been dealing with mental illness in one form or another since childhood, I was first diagnosed with depression at nine. It's not easy speaking out about my experiences, some of them are extremely painful, but if I can help even one person then I have succeeded in sharing my story. This is where I talk about my mental health among other things that interest me. I enjoy walking, PlayStation, reading, heavy metal, and spending time with my Niece.
