Troubled Waters by Susan May Warren

About the Book
Billionaire Ian Shaw can have everything he wants--except a happy ending. Or at least that's what it feels like with his fortune recently liquidated, his niece, Esme, still missing, and the woman he loves refusing to speak to him. In fact, he doubts she would date him even if they were stranded on a deserted island.
Despite her love for Ian, Sierra Rose knows he has no room in his life for her as long as the mystery of his missing niece goes unsolved. The only problem is, Sierra has solved it, but a promise to Esme to keep her whereabouts secret has made it impossible to be around Ian.
When the PEAK chopper is damaged and Sierra lacks the funds to repair it, Ian offers a fundraising junket for large donors on his yacht in the Caribbean. But the three-day excursion turns into a nightmare when a rogue wave cripples the yacht and sends the passengers overboard. Shaken up and soaked to the bone, Ian finally has a chance to test his theory when he and Sierra do indeed find themselves washed up on a strange, empty shore.

It will take guts and gumption for the PEAK team to rescue the duo. But it will take a miracle to rescue Ian and Sierra's relationship.

My Thoughts
​FINALLY!!!!! Ever since I read the prequel novella to this series I have desperately been waiting for Ian and Sierra’s story! I got to meet the author (shortly after I read book one) and she talked a bit about what she was thinking of doing for their story and it sounded completely awesome. She ended up doing what she had discussed and it was as perfect as I knew it was going to be!
To anyone that knew Ian and Sierra it was glaringly obvious that they were meant for each other but they both had some things to work through before they could actually be together. Ian was a take-charge kind of guy but when things began to spiral out of control he went into self-preservation mode and pushed people away. Throughout this series I've waffled between wanting to smack Ian and wanting to give him a hug. He could be so bull-headed and stupid but you also knew that it was coming from a place of pain.
Sierra is one of the most selfless people ever, all she wants to do is help people and is willing to do whatever is asked of her. She's loved Ian forever but until he works through some things she knows they can't have a future.
Both Ian and Sierra had a lot of soul searching to do and there's nothing like being stranded on a deserted island to help with that! It was fun to leave Montana for a bit with these characters and the boat excursion and ensuing fight for survival were brilliantly written and had me reading every chance I could!
We also got more of Pete and Jess's story-can't wait to get their book-as well as getting to see more of the PEAK Rescue team. Ian's friend Dex was a new character that I loved and I think he should get his own book sometime soon!
So yes this book was everything I have been hoping for and so much more! Susan May Warren never fails to deliver amazing books that are oh so worth the wait!
