Book Review of Deep Green by Trisha Haddad

 Adrift in a lifeboat with strangers, each holding a deep secret…

Leah Taylor prefers the quiet adventure and romance of books, but during a cruise with her parents, a terrorist attack leaves her adrift in a lifeboat with strangers.

University student, Blue McCree impresses her immediately with his knowledge of literature and philosophy, but equally thrilling is strong, dark ,Musir. While Musir is slow to speak, translating his thoughts from Arabic to English, his chivalry and wisdom capture Leah’s curiosity.

Together they face danger after danger as they fight for survival. Leah also struggles with the growing attention from the men she's stranded with, and her mixed emotions toward them.

When Leah learns the dark secrets her fellow survivors hold, the truth will blow apart any semblance of civility and test Leah’s preconceived notions of just how far dedication can go before it crosses over into fanaticism.

*I was given a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review*

I read this book in one day, I literally could not put it down.  I enjoyed this book so much! The pacing, the plot, the characters-all were very well done and made for an exciting read. Leah is a great character to get to know and follow. She was very easy to relate too and I felt myself wanting things to work out for her. Musir was a great character as well and although at times he seemed a little too good, you still wanted things to work out for him. 

I wasn't quite sure about this book at first. Stranded on an island can be entertaining to watch, but I wasn't sure about reading about it. Turns out it is just as entertaining. I loved reading about the struggles Leah had to go through and how after conquering some of her fears she grows as a woman. 

I think just about anyone would enjoy this book. It's a quick and exciting read so there is no real reason not to read this book. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves a good story.
