Surviving Raine by Shay Savage

REVIEWED BY Micky Barnard

Surviving Raine (Surviving Raine, #1)Surviving Raine by Shay Savage
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I had very mixed feelings for the first half of this book. Shay Savage quite cleverly wrote a hero who frankly, most would hate. The skill comes in her ability to convince you that he has worth and there is something to like about him. This book is an unusual tale of Sebastian, an alcoholic captain of a Caribbean cruiser who is shipwrecked alongside his passengers. The only survivor in his inadequate raft is Raine, a young, quiet woman. Their experience is completely coloured by the temper and mean nature of Bastian. He has his uses but he's unpleasant company.

There is no doubt this was a gripping read; their desperate experience felt real and I lived in the moment with them. There is a change that comes over both the characters and it was interesting reading, The book does have completion but there is a sequel and I feel like there is much more to know about the 'what happens next'.
