Blurb: Annabelle Tucker is still reeling from last season’s Endurance Island, when the man she loved played her for a fool. When producers ask her back for a new season it’s the last thing she’s interested in…until she hears her ex, the gorgeous but duplicitous Kip, will be there. Revenge and a grand prize? Yes, please!
But someone’s there to throw a kink into her plans. Someone tall and cut, and with the sexiest gray eyes. Jendan Abercrombie’s on an opposing team, but it doesn’t mean that Annabelle can’t lust after him, right? She’ll just have to save all that lusting for post-show, when she’s free to follow where her loins lead.
When a tribal twist puts them both on the same team – naked – will Annabelle be able to resist his very apparent charms? Or will she have to vote Jendan out to save her game?
If you love reality TV shows like The Bachelor and Survivor than this is the book for you. A perfect blend of some of the best reality TV shows in the air right now, “Body Games” by Jessica Clare is a fun read that you won’t be able to put down. This is the 5th book in the Games series, however you do not need to read the previous books in the series to figure out what is happening in this book.
The plot begins by introducing Annabelle, a previous contestant on Endurance Island whose portrayal on the show left her the laughing stalk of the show. She is looking for redemption and revenge on her love interest from the previous season. Annabelle is an interesting character, a little naive, trying to navigate her away around the show, at first introduction she does not seem like the smartest person. However, as the book progresses her character really grows and becomes smarter, stronger, and learns how to play the game.
Her love interest is Jendan, another contestant on the show. I wish that there had been more romantic scenes with them. The book tried to divide itself between this building romance and Annabelle playing the game, and I felt that sometimes their romance was set to the side.
Overall, this was a fun, light read. Jessica Clare did a great job of creating this really fun setting. Some of things these characters have to do were crazy. It was also a nice peek into the world of reality TV. So if you want a nice weekend read ” Body Games” is the book for you.
