After losing his best friend to another guy, the notoriously
too-confident Max Emory suddenly feels lost. He may have devastatingly good
looks, an abundance of charm, and a claim to one of the biggest hotel empires
around, but he has no ambition anymore. So when his fed-up friends decide
they’ve had enough of his moping, they sign him up to be the next bachelor on
the reality series Love Island. And between his pride and his forged signature
on an ironclad contract, Max just can’t say no.


Now he’s stranded in paradise with twenty-four women, one
terrifying goat, and Becca, the breathtaking barista who already turned him
down back home. The closer Max gets to Becca, the more determined he becomes to
win her over. As she gets to know him better, things start heating up. But is
Becca really after Max’s heart—or is she after the cash prize she could claim
once the cameras stop rolling?
