The secondary plot was a search for a drug smuggler who'd brought drugs to the island, and as cops, it was Beau and Diego's job to track the smuggler down. The secondary plot really came across as not so much of an after-thought, but more...filler. It really wasn't that big of a deal throughout the book, just sandwiched in between sex scenes (heh - a lot of sandwiching went on, with Lexa as the center).
And that brings me to the points that made me decrease the stars. 1) To my mind, the villain had a neon-pink sign over their head saying "I'm the villain, I'm the villain" from the very first time they showed up on the page.
2) The far more heinous, squicky aspect (which was much more responsible for the lowered score than the villain issue) was the fact that over and over and over again, Beau and Diego harped on the fact that they'd been dreaming about loving Lexa, being with Lexa, ever since she vanished. She left the island when. She. Was. Eight! They were dreaming about a woman they literally had not seen since she was eight. Not even a tween or a teen. Eight! Had she been a teenager, I really would have had very little problem with this, but there you have it. It really really gave me the squickies. I almost wonder if in an earlier draft she'd been older and then because of the need for Lexa to remember very little about the island, Ms. Hayes made her younger, and just sort of overlooked the age thing when having Beau & Diego go googly-eyed over their memories of her.
But, I really liked this book and think I'm going to go find others in the series, which is saying something considering my prior feelings about menage couples. Well done to Ms. Hayes for getting me to think more positively about menage romance! I loved it!
Thanks to the author for sending this to review!
