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.

This book is about a game - if you remember the old reality tv show, survives - it's basically that same game - And the challenges are just as good in the book as they were on the show :)
A group of 24 people taken to a private island to live off of nothing but the island in hopes to win $2 million -
Abby was dragged into the game by her boss...more

That shouldn't be a big deal. Unfortunately, it is.
The book was rather cliche: boy and girl are jerks to each other at first, but then fall for one another; a...more
I'm not a fan of "Survivor" type shows or premises but I downloaded it based on a couple good reviews.
This book is full of awesome, chocked full of win and odearheavens HOT.
Abby Lewis works for a entertainment style magazine that basically forces her to go on this reality show and report back to them what's its like.
She had pretty low expectations and frankly just hopes to not get cut too early to write a decent story.
She gets teamed up with super compe...more
This was a quick, easy, and refreshing read. I can say honestly that not one point of the story bothered me, and if you know anything about my tolerance for books, then you know that's monumental in and of itself. That's not to say there weren't things that won't bother others, but I was too easily distra...more

The story, Wicked Games by Jill Myles, centers on the aspiring author, full-time journalist and all around smart-ass Abby Lewis. She is coerced into joining the survival game as an inside mole. Only once she gets i...more
I had mixed emotions starting this book. Jane from Dear Author recommended this book on Twitter and the <140 character plot summary, and free price on my Nook, sounded like something I'd like. Despite that, this book had two things going against it for me: I've never gotten into reality TV, and I don't like first person narrative. The latter is more significant; first person narrative make me think of Bella from Twilight and Claire from Outlander, and I can't rea...more
I got sucked into this book waiting at the doctor’s office... then got mad when the nurse called my name. I was fine when the nurse and doctor said “be right back” because I could read a few more paragraphs. Instead of studying, I came home and went right back to this book until it was over. There’s not much I can say about this little novella, just READ IT!
The Reality TV show thing has been done many times before. This is the first time I’ve enjoyed it. The characters bait e...more
Abby knew the moment her boss called her into her office that she was in trouble. As a book reviewer better known as 'Abby the Book Bitch', her next assignment involves doing some actual field research and this "first hand exclusive" could lead to a major career move. All she has to do is get through a few rounds on Endurance Island, so despite her hesitations at being part of the center of national attention and ridicule, Abby quite literally dives right i...more

Epic failing on my part aside, clearly, I've been missing out because she definitely knows how to deliver sexy sizzle with an entertaining story to boot!
When *book reviewer* Abby Lewis gets an order from her boss to become a contestant on Endurance Island, she isn't exactly thrilled with the idea, but she does like the sound of the book deal she'll be granted if she can get through a couple of challenges.
Lucky for her, Abby f...more
Abby works for MediaWeek magazine, and her boss asks her to drop everything and join this crazy show so she can give an insider’s take on what it is like to participate on Endurance Island. If she does this, they will offer her a book deal in return for Abby’s secrecy and some exclusive articles fo...more
Abby is a pretty good lead - she is unsure of her capabilities, but never quits. She is basically forced onto this show, but makes the most of the situation, even surprising herself and others with her ability to win. She c...more
Abby got suckered into joining a reality show al la Survivor. She gets tossed onto an island for a chance to win two million dollars. Only she isn't after the money. She's after the book deal she's been promised for being on the show. Dean is there to win. When he gets paired up with Abby...more
I picked up Wicked Games as more of a joke book. I needed something to fill some time and I really didn’t care what it was.
With that said, the first 35% of this book had me laughing so hard, that the people around me became annoyed. Bully for them!
There will be several highlights from the book in this review. All worthy, I assure you
This is an erotica / romance book that has plowed head first into a series of Survivor. Now, I’m not a big fan of that show. I don’t like politics. I don’...more
I enjoyed this unique adult romance novel, but it’s not something I’d read again.
Wicked Games by Jill Myles is set up a lot like Survivor, the reality TV show. The 14 contestants, 7 males and 7 females, compete in groups of two. Every few days one couple is voted off. Toward the end of the game the couples split up and everyone competes individually. The last person standing wins 2 million dollars.
I thought the pl...more
The rules for the season change and Abby finds herself paired up with the athletic Dean. Sparks fly and not the desirable kind at first. The two have to learn to work together or lose the prize they both are coveting. But will be...more
