It's been a while since I've written a post about what I've been reading. Truthfully, up until a few weeks ago, I simply haven't had the time to sit down and read. But, thankfully the girls are back in school, and now that I've got my current WIP plotted and underway, I've had the extreme pleasure of diving into my favorite pastime.
Here's today's recommendation :)
Wicked Games by Jill Myles
Abby Lewis never pictured herself on the survival game show, Endurance Island. She's just not the survival type. But when her boss offers her a spot on the show and the opportunity of a lifetime, she packs her bags and heads to the tropics to be a contestant. Once in the game, though, it's clear that Abby's in over her head. No one's more competitive than sexy, delicious and arrogant Dean Woodall. Sure, he's clever, strong, good at challenges, and has a body that makes her mouth water. He also hates Abby just as much as she hates him. That's fine with her; she'll just ignore the jerk. But the rules of Endurance Island are working against them. Abby and Dean are teamed up & alone on the beach. It's either work together, or go home. Stuck with no one's company but their own, they learn they might just make a good team after all. And Abby learns that with just a little bit of kindling, the flames of hate can quickly turn to flames of passion. This book features enemies, lovers, enemies who become lovers, and lots and lots of tropical heat. Length: 59,000 words
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In fact, I read it in one sitting much to my husbands utter dismay. It centers around a journalist who's been roped by her boss into going on a famous survival reality TV show (think Survivor.) The characters were fabulous, the pacing great, and I laughed out loud on more than one occasion. If you're looking for a quick, sexy read with lots of humor and a sassy female lead, then look no further. This is the book for you.
"I have no idea why I licked the peanut butter off of her finger. One moment she's just standing there, taunting me, and the next, I've got her finger in my mouth and I'm licking her with my tongue and I'm getting turned on. And now I can't stop looking at the way her butt looks in those bikinis. –– Dean Woodall, Day 4"
I rated this baby 5 stars and am now eager to read more of Ms. Myles work!
