Body Games

Annabelle Tucker never wanted to go back to Endurance Island as they made her look like a bimbo who slept with a contestant. She had flirted and thought herself in love but she had found out it was all a game. Annabelle gets a chance to then change her image and get revenge on the contestant who ruined her reputation.

Jendan Abercrombie had been on House Guest and now was on Endurance Island. He was the nice guy on the show and he will do his best to help Annabelle who he was quickly falling for, even though she just wanted them to be friends.

Body Games is the fifth book to the series Games by Jessica Clare. I really liked this book. Jessica Clare takes us back to Endurance Island aka Survivor.

Annabelle’s character was a woman out for revenge and that revenge was to get out her old/present partner so he didn’t win the money. I was cheering for Annabelle even with every dirty move she made. Some made me laugh and cringe but she was playing the game. I liked that she stayed true to no romances on the show even though it had been difficult with Jendan on the show. Jendan’s character was from the fourth book and I had liked him. I was routing for him to find that romance in real life and Annabelle seemed like a good match for him.

I am reading Reindeer Games next.

The Vampire’s Bride by Gena Showalter

In the long battle between allies and enemies of Atlantis it is time for Layel, King of vampires to have his time in the spotlight in the fourth book.

He is Layel, king of the vampires, a master seducer no woman can deny.  But since a rogue horde of dragons killed his beloved over two centuries ago, Layel has existed only for vengence…until he meets Delilah.

Wary of love, the beautiful Amazon wants nothing to do with the tormented vampire.  Yet there’s no denying their consuming desire every time he nears her.

Neither trust the other-nor can they survive alone.  For in an impossible game of the gods’ devising, they’ve been trapped on an island, about to face the ultimate challenge: surrender to the passion that will bind them forever…or be doomed to an eternity apart.

The series of Atlantis intrigued me since picking up the first book and since then I have liked reading about the characters and their interactions they have through each book.

The love story is of Delilah and Layel but there is a few others that are fighting the attraction which is being felt.

I liked that there was the tension and the attraction right away but I found it more meaningful that Showalter doesn’t automatically throw them into bed.

The plot had some interesting twists and it was a real survivors game where the losers are killed and only one can be the victorious.

The fourth book was entertaining to read and enjoyable but I am curious about the next one.  I believe it will follow up with Nola and Zane and see where their destiny lies.

Kitty’s House of Horrors by Carrie Vaughan

Kitty Norville, an average woman with a husband, friends and family.  Everything is normal except for the fact that she gets a little furry, along with her husband and few friends.  Kitty is a werewolf, but a werewolf DJ making her voice heard among all the supernatural creatures.

“Talk radio host and werewolf Kitty Norville has agreed has agreed to appear on TV’s first all -supernatural reality show.  She’s expecting cheesy competitions and manufactrued drama starring shapeshifters, vampires, and psychics.  But what begins as publicity stunt will turn into a fight for her life.

The cast members, including Kitty, arrive at the remote mountain lodge where teh show is set.  As soon as filming starts, violence erupts and Kitty suspects that the show is a cover for a nefarious plot.  Then the cameras stop rolling, cast members start dying, and Kitty realizes she and her monster housemates are irronically the ultimate prize in a very different game.  Stranded with no power, no phones, and no way to know who can be trusted, she must find a way to defeat the evil closing in…before it kills them all.”

As I read the back of the book the first thought was the reality show “survivor”.  Through this day and age there are reality shows that are coming back and new ones being made.  It is a mad dash for the next one but to have it in book form I thought the author Carrie Vaughan was creative.  It was a concept that I really haven’t read about, especially with supernatural in the mix.

As the series continued Kitty and Ben have been married for one year now and Cormac, the bounty hunter, is now up for parole.  Instead of being there for Ben and Cormac, Kitty is off to an isolated mountain range for her own reality tv show that is going to be more intense than survivor, it will be survival.
