Story Overview:
Nathaniel Reis screwed up. He put his career as an air force pilot before his marriage to Tess, and wound up divorced. Now that he's left the service, he has a plan to fix things, if only he can get her alone for a few days.
When Tess misses her flight to a corporate retreat, Nat's there with his island-hopper plane and a plot to get stranded in paradise thanks to "mechanical problems." But his plan goes awry when a storm blows them off course and they have to make a real emergency landing—and not on the island where he's stashed supplies.
Tess is furious. She's anxious to get to her retreat, and away from Nat. She's even angrier that being so close to him arouses her in a way she hasn't been for a long time. Rescue can't come soon enough, but in the meantime, she's going to have to trust Nat to keep her safe. Even if she's in danger of falling for him all over again.

My Review:
At only 19,000 words, this is a really short read, but I don't feel like that fact hurt this book at all. This is a book about a couple that had a 10 year long relationship, so the time wasn't needed in the book to establish their connection. These two were already very connected...and still very much are... through their hearts. Tess and Nat were together for 10 years, when she finally got fed up with placing last against his career and divorced him. Quite honestly, the divorce blindsided Nat because he didn't realize how unhappy she had become in their marriage. 

That was a year ago, and things have changed drastically since then. Nat has left the Air Force and now has his own charter plane company. He still loves Tess and regrets not fighting more for their marriage so he works with her assistant to set up a plan where he has the opportunity to "kidnap" her and end up stranded on a deserted island. His plan goes awry when weather causes them to crash land, but he still ends up with Three Days & Two Nights to convince her to give him another chance.

This was a fabulous little read. It's very sexy and hot, and was highly entertaining. I thoroughly enjoyed both of these characters and, coming from a background where I was an AF spouse, I can definitely see how their marriage went wrong, even though they both definitely still love the other. Obviously, Tess is MUCH MORE reluctant to give into their passion than Nat is, but she still feels the undeniable pull to him. She misses him and their life together and although she has built a new life for herself, it can't necessarily be qualified as a happy life. It's a beautiful reminder to be sure that you don't take advantage of those that you love because they may not always be there for you, if you do.

The book takes place on a deserted island, involves lots of hot passion between two people that truly love each other, and can be read easily in about an hour...what's not to love here?!? It's a GREAT little book!!!

And just because, here are a couple of fun little quotes from the book:

He looped his arm over her waist and pulled her back against his chest. "I already told you, not an option. Look, the old way's the best. Just relax, Tess."

"Your penis has forgotten we're divorced," she muttered. 

"My penis always had a thing for you," he said.

Stranded on a deserted island with her ex-husband and horny as hell. How sad was that? Might be sadder if she didn't know how good the sex could be.
