REVIEW - Wicked Games by Jill Myles

Author: Jill Myles
Genre: Adult Contemporary

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…


This was a great fun and exciting read that had me hooked from the very beginning. I loved everything about this book, especially Dean ;) Can I just say yum! Abby was a great character. She was strong, independent and had a quick fire attitude that I loved. I loved that the story was told in first person from her POV as you were able to really get in to her head and see how she really felt about the whole situation.
Dean was fantastic! I'm gonna try not to gush to much but it's gonna be hard because I just fell in love with him from the start. Even though he did come off as a dick to begin with you will warm up to him in no time. He was arrogant, cocky, but also had a sweet and loving side. Every thing I want in a guy :P
The story was very interesting and it was fun to read about surviving on an island. I never read any other books like this one before so it was a nice change. It was interesting to see how all the team dynamics panned out and want lengths people will go to to win.

Overall this was a great story with a steamy romance and an adventure you won't forget.
