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 (about 260 pages)
My thoughts:
I really enjoyed Jill Myles Succubus Diary series, so when i saw this as a free ebook I added it to my Kindle library.  I started it awhile back but didn't finish it.  Last week I started it again and read it in just a few sittings.  It is the first book I finished reading on my Kindle Fire.  The premise is just like Survivor from the perspective of a journalist who is drafted onto the show. 

Myles did a good job getting Dean and Abby to work their way around to the need to work together and built their attraction pretty well.  Most of the other contestants were barely sketched out, but as they weren't the focus of the story it really didn't matter.  It was a quick read.  Abby's emotions were well done and believable.  I thought the ending wrapped things ups a little too neatly, but sometimes it is nice to have the characters you've spent time with settled and happy. I still enjoy the Succubus Diaries more, she really does a good job with the love triangle and supernatural elements in those.
