Overview (from B&N.com): Abby Lewis never pictured herself on the survival game show, Endurance Island. She’s just no 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, it’s clear that Abby’s in over her head. The game itself is full of competitive, aggressive people, and no one’s more aggressive 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 else’s company but their own, they learn they do make a good team after all. And that with just a little bit of kindling, the flames of hate can quickly turn to flames of passion.
This book (147 pages on the Nook) was another quick read and the first in Clare’s ‘Games’ series. This is a reality show competition book based on the show, Survivor. The antagonism between Abby and Dean was fun to read. The slow burn of hate turning into passion was believable and not rushed by the author. Abby’s acerbic wit, sarcasm, and fierce determination was a bit inspiring and definitely a joy to read. Dean was also a great character, with his cocky, no apologies demeanor. A fantastic fit for Abby, as partners vying for a prize of $2 million. The description of the different challenges that the competitors participated in was detailed enough that it felt like you were really watching them compete. And the communication between Abby and Dean during a challenge was nothing less than hilarious. There was some graphic content of the romantic variety, so if you don’t like reading that then this is not a book for you. With that in mind, I would recommend Wicked Games as long as you’re 16+.
