Ten things to do when stuck on a deserted island with your ex by MJ Fredrick

Ten things to do when stuck on a deserted island with your ex

1) Panic.

2) Spell out SOS with coconuts. Climbing that tree will take a lot of energy, and get you out of his reach!

3) Build a sandcastle with room for ONE.

4) Go for a swim and ignore the fact that he looks better than ever.

5) Go fishing—you aren’t horny, you’re HUNGRY.

6) Explore the island, and hope there’s a hotel around the bend. For RESCUE—not that other thing.

7) Hang out under the waterfall in your underwear and hope he’s not paying attention.

8) Do NOT think about sex.

9) Light a big bonfire, hoping someone will see it and rescue you before you do something stupid.

10) Be grateful he packed condoms.

Reunion stories are one of my favorite romance tropes—which is weird considering there’s no one in my past I want to reunite with—I married my high school sweetheart. But I just love the idea that something happened to a couple that was bad enough to tear them apart, but there’s still love there. It’s a huge hurdle to overcome, isn’t it? And we make a lot of mistakes when we’re young, so in Three Days, Two Nights, out this week from Carina Press, Nat and Tess are college sweethearts who made some life-changing decisions after they were married. Now Nat decides he’ll do whatever it takes to get her back!

Do you like reunion stories? What are your favorites?

Congratulations on your recent release. I have been eyeing this book and really like the sound of it. I can't recall a favorite reunion story but reunions and second chance storylines in general are my favorite to read.

Thanks, Na! It's my second divorced couple story. The one I'm working on now is a high school sweetheart reunion story. I'm always drawn to them!
