{NA Minute Review} Undertow, Wunderland #1 (NA Contemporary Romance) by Jen Greyson

Undertow, Wunderland #1 (NA Contemporary Romance)
Six single girls. One sexy billionaire bachelor. All on a multi-million dollar yacht—What could possibly go wrong?

Sangria Henlie avoids reality TV like last season’s labels. She’s never watched The Bachelor, has no idea who won any season of Survivor, and couldn’t care less who’s on this season of Big Brother. She may be an entertainment law intern, but Sangria aspires to work with serious clients.
When her firm takes on a reality TV client, Sangria has no choice but to wade through ridiculous and tedious paperwork, heightening her distaste for unscripted television—And they upped the stupidity by putting the bachelor on a boat. For her, Undertow can’t sail out to sea—and her life—fast enough.
Mateo Darger puts the family shipping business ahead of everything—especially women. Going on Undertow was his uncle’s crazed idea. Mateo nearly backed out until he realized the advertising benefits. Six weeks with six lovely ladies in exchange for one hour of weekly prime-time television? Done deal.
But when Sangria visits his office to brief him about the do's and don’ts of this crazy cruise, the only thing he can think of is her—and by her clipped remarks, she thinks he's an unmitigated ass for taking part in a farcical charade.
At the last minute, he gets her on the boat. But he hasn't thought through his next move. She's furious—and Mateo has six other women to…ahem…impress? Will Sangria let down her guard, or will it be the longest six weeks of Mateo’s blessed billionaire life?

{Rating} 3/5 - I liked it!

"Disgusted didn't come close." (page 1, line 1)
Undertow had all the elements of awesomeness: reality television, a bachelor like concept, a strong, smart heroine who thinks she's happy just as she is, a hot and kind hero who is determined to get close to her, an attraction a ship of scheming females, a major grudge and a whole lot of angst.

While I enjoyed the storyline, and especially the ending, it was absolutely perfect, I wanted more. More depth, I learned more about Mateo's background from the blurb than the book, I wanted to know about his past, his motivations, I wanted inside his head. I wanted to know more about Sangria too, about her car that she keeps covered, the something that happened to her.
