Book Review: Beyond the Sea by Keira Andrews

Reviewed: January 30th, 2023
Released: March 9th, 2016
Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

Two hot guys. One desert island.

Troy Tanner walks out on his boy band’s world tour rather than watching his little brother snort his life away. Screw it. He’ll take a private jet home and figure out his life away from the spotlight.

But Troy doesn’t make it home.

The plane crashes on a jungle island in the South Pacific. Forget dodging the paparazzi—now Troy’s desperate for food and water. The turquoise ocean and white sand beach looks like paradise, but danger lurks everywhere. Thank God the pilot survived too. At least Troy’s not alone. He has Brian.

Brian’s smart and brave and strong. He doesn’t care that Troy’s famous. Brian’s real. As days turn into weeks with no sign of rescue, Troy and Brian rely on each other. They make each other laugh despite being stranded. They go from strangers to friends.

What happens when they want more?

Although he and Brian both identify as straight, their growing desire burns hotter than the tropical sun. If they explore their sexuality a thousand miles from anything or anyone, can their newfound love survive in the real world when they’re finally rescued?

Helen’s thoughts: 5/5

Oh my! What a gem of a book. This is like a warm hug and you don’t want it to end.

Beautifully written tale of two men stranded on a desert island and an opportuity to explore their sexuality without fear of anyone else’s opinion.

This is not just a tale of sexual awakening, but of a journey two men take, in extraordinary conditions, from strangers to friends to lovers and Andrews handles it beautifully. There is a seamless progresssion from survival to the need for company. They make each other laugh in dire circumstances and that gives a chance for other emotions to blossom.

Both Troy and Brian have their own issues, and as one line said, ‘with them carrying so much baggage it was amazing that the jet took off.’ But they help each other and become reliant on each other. They begin to trust each other.

Thoroughly enjoyed the story, the characters, and the relationship that grows between them.
