My Tease for this week comes from:

Wicked Games
(Games #1)
Jessica Clare

First - The Blurb:

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…

Second - The Tease:

Heat rushed through me at the feel of his tongue, his hot mouth sucking on my skin. I forgot about the peanut butter that was his original goal and my body flushed, my mind skidding to a halt at the sight of his beautiful mouth over my skin, the feel of his tongue against my flesh.

Wow! I actually managed to keep my tease to two sentences this week. Yay me!

And I'm guessing that you're wondering where the peanut butter is. Sorry, so not going to tell you.

Okay, to the story. Wicked Games is fast paced and filled with a tonne of fun moments (and quite a few steamy ones too). The chemistry between Abby and Dean is electric, and although they seem to be at odds at first, they soon realize that there is a growing attraction between them which quickly blossoms into more.

The story itself reminded me of the reality TV game show... Survivor. Although I have only ever watched a few episodes, I could discern the similarities. But I didn't mind. It made for an enjoyable read.

My Rating: 4 out of 5
