Determined to outdo each other, business rivals Sean and Andrew land themselves in hot water when their private feud spills over at a very public charity auction.
With neither willing to back down over the dream vacation at stake, they're told by their boss that they're both going and that they're to return as friends.
As fate would have it, their plane crashes and they wash up on a desert island where their feud is as likely to doom them as the lack of food and their inability to start a fire. But there's enough heat between them to set sparks flying once out and proud Sean discovers that Andrew's gay, but determined to remain in the closet.
Rescue comes, but brings with it new challenges. They're whisked back to their old lives with secrets to keep and a shared passion that makes it impossible for them to stay apart for long.
Choices must be made, new paths taken, and two men who have always been good at fighting find themselves, finally, with something worth fighting for: each other.

ROCK AND A HARD PLACE is a classic story of enemies turning into lovers. From the bickering and general entertaining animosity to strong writing, a reader can pretty much find something to like when it comes to this book.
Sean and Andrew are business rivals, but two who really don't have a limit when it comes to the mutual dislike. Yes, they both have sharp tongues, are quite brilliant and not very tolerable when it comes to the subject of their intense hate. It only figures that they will end up on a plane that goes crashing down and that they will get stuck on a deserted island with no one but their enemy for company.
I am a fan of the general enemies to lovers plot line and the constant arguments between Sean and Andrew were pretty much pure delight for me. I didn't even particularly mind the whole plane-meets-doom-and-we're-stuck-together scenario, but I am a bit tired of the whole coming out issue when the main character is terrified of his parents and generally has control of every other aspect of his life but the one that in my opinion should be the most important one. You can't eat love, true, but what is life without someone to love and care for you and someone to give your heart to?
The story did slow down after a while and despite some pretty desperate measures when it came to the island, I enjoyed it. Both men were very well developed and their relationship was interesting to keep on reading. This was another great story from this duo. Recommended.
