Author: Pepper Winters
Genre: Contemporary Survival Romance
Publication Date: March 30, 2016
"Instincts are what keep us safe from fate. Ignoring them can change your life forever."
Fame and fortune arrived overnight and after months on the road with her singing tour, all Estelle craves is peace. Tired and ready for paradise, she travels to Fiji to recuperate.
Stubborn and surly, Galloway is avoided by most--which is exactly the way he likes it. However, he's done spending his life in regret and hopes to find redemption in the tropical wilderness.
Together, they board the flight that changes their fate forever. Crash landing on a deserted island, they not only have to figure out how to survive with no skills and daily dangers--learning how to fish, find water, and build shelter--but also inherit two children who look to them to keep them alive.
However, staying alive might be the least of Galloway and Estelle's problems. As days creep to months and rescue doesn't find them, their desire for each other ignites.
They started as strangers.
They grew to be friends.
They fought the desire to be lovers.
Lust can be the most beautiful thing. Love the most rewarding. But not on an island where life hangs by a thread and giving into temptation can kill you.
Can they survive being forgotten or will love be their ultimate undoing?
From New York Times Bestseller Pepper Winters comes a timeless love story answering the question of what happens when everything is stripped away.
She finally touched me.
And I let her.
Her fingers were hypnotically soft; moving over my face, across my lips, lingering on my throat.
My body instantly hardened.
I reached for her, but the touch dropped lower, across my sternum, along my lower belly, feathering on my hipbone to my thigh.
My cock stood up, begging to be granted the same treatment, but the touch vanished, tugging on something around my leg.
My teeth snapped together as the frustration I’d been fighting for months boiled over.
Lashing out, I connected with hair.
Not a faceless face or dream-figmented breasts.
My eyes flew open.
The dream ended.
And I shot upright only to slam back down again when I noticed it wasn’t a dream. Estelle bowed over me. Her knees against my thigh, her fingers unbuckling the seat belts and fabric ties around my splint.
I sucked in a breath, whisper-hissing in the dark. “What the hell do you think you’re
Her eyes flashed then skittered across the camp to Pip and Conner. They slept in individual beds tonight, not needing each other’s support from the lonely memories of being parentless.
She froze. “I’m doing what you want.”
“What I want?”
A Technicolor porno unraveled in my head. What I wanted was her mouth on my cock. What I wanted was her straddling my hips and me thrusting into her tight, hot heat. What I wanted was her.
A thousand times her.
I gritted my teeth; balled my hands. I did everything I could to fight the undeniable urges volcanoing in my blood.
“Estelle, I suggest you move away from me.”
I gave her a warning.
I was a gentleman.
If I touched her now, kissed her, fucked her...it would be her fault for coming too close when she knew the uncrossable boundaries between us.
“Just tolerate me for a few seconds and then I’ll be gone.” Her eyes dropped back to my thigh. Tolerate?
She thought I couldn’t tolerate her?
Shit, I was in love with her. I spent my days falling more and more into goddamn love with her, and she thought I could barely tolerate her?
Stupid, stupid woman.
Unseen Messages is one of those books that dragged me through the mud with feels. I’m talking about a myriad of emotions felt in a span of seconds at times. I cried. I laughed. I swooned. I cursed. I smiled. I ached. I loved. I hated. I broke. These were just some of the emotions Ms. Winters’ puts the reader through. By the time I reached the end, I had a strong love/hate relationship with this book. There were moments I was so engrossed the pages flew by and then there were the moments everything seemed to drag on. There were many, many times I thought I would throw my phone out of anger and frustration. The fight and flight almost killed me. I seriously wanted to smack some heads against something (yes, I am talking about you Galloway!) There were also many, many times I fell so hard for these characters that I couldn’t help but break when they broke and heal when they healed.
Galloway and Estelle were a force to be reckoned with. While this couple could drive me absolutely mad with their fight and flight, they also inspired me with their endless strength, courage, and perseverance. In a situation where most would lose their mind and drive to live, these two fought the hounds of hell in order to find salvation, while maintaining a balance of life and humanity.
I have to give major props to Pepper, this book is definitely different from anything else she’s written that I’ve read. With Unseen Messages, Pepper Winters’ has proven she’s definitely not a one trick pony. The writing was beautifully scripted and executed. The characters well defined, packed with dimension and personality. The plot unique and deep-rooting.
This story of love, loss, and survival is one you don’t want to miss. If you don’t mind lengthy books (700+ pages), than this comes as a definite recommendation for me.
