Pro hockey player Archer Holt is taking his charm and swagger from the ice to the…sand? One of sixteen players competing to be the last man standing on a new reality show, he’s all in until he finds out the meaning behind the show’s title—Exiled.
Before I was a pro hockey player, I was an Eagle Scout. I can tie knots, build shelters and fish like nobody’s business, making me the perfect choice to represent my team on a reality show set on a primitive tropical island. I can endure scorching heat, tough competitions and torrential rainfall—no problem. But when I find out who my partner is, I’m not so sure I’ll survive being stranded on an island with her.
Archer Holt broke my heart eight years ago. Now he’s rich and famous, and I’m a high school English teacher in our hometown. When I’m offered the chance to compete for half a million dollars by outlasting fifteen other teams on an island with my selfish jerk of an ex, I jump at it, because that money can change not just my life, but my family’s. Besides, I’m long over Archer.
Or so I thought.
Archer is a skilled player on the ice, and he is about to show his survival skills off the ice when he is asked to compete against other hockey players in a reality show. He thought he would be ready for everything that they were going to throw at him but the one thing he wasn’t prepared for was that he would be teaming up with his first love.
Lauren agreed to participate in the reality show as the money from winning the show would be a dream come true. She didn’t expect that it would bring Archer back into her life and that they would have to deal with their painful pasts.
The storyline is different from anything you may have read before as Archer and Lauren embark on a journey that proves that they are perfect for each other in all aspects of their lives.
