Author: RJ Scott and Meredith Russell

Rating: 5.00 of 5 Stars


Model, Isaac Bailey wants to break into the world of fashion design. Under his father’s company name, he is set to debut his new collection—summer wear. He has the models, the clothes, what he needs is a location.

Mitch Stone is a trouble shooter. His latest client needs an exotic location and he happens to know someone with the very thing—Sapphire Cay. Having underestimated Isaac as nothing more than an airhead model, Mitch soon discovers there is much more to the young man than he first thought.

As the fashion shoot gets underway, Mitch has to contend with his feelings for his old love, Dylan, and the very new and growing affections he has for Isaac. What starts as just another job, turns out to be more fruitful and exhilarating than winning any multi-million dollar contract

My View:

I’ve been reading the Sapphire Cay stories since the very first book; they are like coming home and meeting old friends. My oasis of calm all rolled into one. It doesn’t matter how bad my day has been a trip to Sapphire Cay has the power to lower my blood pressure and relax me like nothing else.

Capture the Sun is book 5 in the series. I’ve been reviewing each book over at and it’s with great pleasure I carry on that tradition at Prism.

You can find my previous reviews here:

Book 1 Follow the Sun –
Book 2 Under the Sun –
Book 3 Chase the Sun –
Book 4 Christmas in the Sun –

Each book ‘could’ be read as a standalone but if you do that you miss the layering of characters and events that you get with reading each book in the published order. In each book new characters join the Sapphire Cay family and even though they may leave at the end of the story they never really do. Once you step onto Sapphire Cay you never leave, it’s that kind of place.

Isaac Bailey is an ex model who’s desperate to be taken for something more than just a pretty face, he dreams of being a fashion designer. Under the umbrella of his father’s company Isaac has designed a range of summer clothing for a chain of stores; he just needs to launch it. Isaac wants exotic photos, full of sun, sea and sand, what he doesn’t expect is to meet a man who has the potential to be the love of his life, a man he’s met before, he just didn’t get a name last time.

Mitch Stone’s ex-boyfriend Dylan owns Sapphire Cay and part of the reason Mitch has selected the island for the summer wear shoot was to bring closure to his feelings for Dylan. Mitch knows he made mistakes but it’s too late now to change anything now, Dylan is happy with his fiancée Lucas, and Mitch has his work, not much of a compensation but it does for now. That is until the shoot brings him face to face with a previous one night stand, a one night stand he hasn’t been able to forget. Can the magic of the island bring the two men together?

I loved this one so much, it’s by far my favourite of the series (and long may they continue). I don’t want to say anything more about the story except to say Mitch is perfect as the uptight businessman who’s forgotten how to unwind, he wants what he finds on the Cay but he’s scared to reach out and take it, thinking that you can’t build a future on a holiday fling. I loved Isaac too; he was very sweet and quite nervous of the fashion shoot for his first collection. One touch that I loved was how the pictures of Peter and Alfie, found in Christmas on the Cay, were mentioned, that’s the type of thing that’s wonderful about these stories, each one feeds into the next, and I can’t wait to hear their story too.
