Body Games (Book Five) Game Series

body games.jpgAnnabelle 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?

Ok, I know we typically start off with out initial impressions of the book and all that but I just have to put this out there.... 

So I know that sounds promising but would NEVER catch me willingly doing that on NATIONAL TELEVISION!

rolling on the floor Uh yeah! You won't EVER catch me baring all for the world either! blushing I don't mind reading about people who do! winking

LOL. Exactly! And I freely admit that the fact that everyone was naked (partly) drew me to the book. Even though I could't actually see it, I just knew that it would be an interesting aspect to the story and cause no shortage of awkward interactions.

Oh yeah! This was definitely an imagination provoking read! winking

LOL. I'll admit that part of me was wishing that they wouldn't pixilate the naughty bits for the TV show so everyone could see just how small Kip was. Because we all know he was the size of a thimble. winking And speaking of Kip...OMG. I FREAKING HATED HIM!!! I wanted a pirana to mistake his *cough* for a worm and bite it off. I was beyond glad when Annabelle stopped boiling his water! He deserved worse for all the crap he put her through!

I couldn't agree more about Kip! He was a douche canoe of the highest order! Every time he DIDN'T do something to help pull his weight, I wanted to jump in the book and junk punch him!

LOL. You're far nicer than me. I was hoping his sun burn below the belt would start peeling and hurt like a hot poker was being shoved up his....

Hey! I know you love plotting the torture of fictional characters, but keep it clean! winking

....anyway, I was beyond happy that Annabelle got revenge on him.

LMAO!!! Well, your idea is better than mine! Ok so we can agree Kip was a waste of space... What did youthink about our leading lady, Annabelle?

I really liked Annabelle. I felt so bad for her in the beginning. I'm not a huge fan of reality TV (I do watch the ocasional show) but it made me wonder how often the cast was edited in a horrible way. I mean, I know it probably happens and they do manipulate the contestants, but what they did to her was awful. And the way she was treated by strangers was horrible. They acted like she was sleeping with every Tom, Dick and Harry when she thought she found love with someone that turned out to be a loser. And I just couldn't believe that people still harassed her knowing that Kip had used her and bragged about it.

I am not a fan at all of reality tv. I'm glad this was a book, cuz I probably wouldn't have watched it. I did like how the behind the scenes aspect was explained. That was really interesting! I agree with you too. Annabelle was a sweet and feisty girl. I hated how she was portrayed and I was glad when she came up with her plan-o-vengence! winking

I have to say that that I hate that Jendan (or as I called him...Jordan) got caught up in her plan-o-vengence because I totally loved him.

I loved him too! He was a nice guy, but not in the pushover geeky way. I hated that he was caught in the middle, even though he didn't know it.

I agree. And he could have totally been a jerk when that happend and delayed them getting together, but he was able to see through the game to her real emotions. And I totally loved his little video confessionals at the beginning of each chapter. It was the next best thing to having his POV.

Oh yes! I loved his confessional too! And yeah, I also liked that he was able to understand where Annabelle was coming from and didn't hold her actions against her. Just proved he was a great guy and right for her! big grin

I have to say that I've never watched Survivor (aside from a few scenes as I flipped through the channels) but I couldn't do what Annabelle and Jendan did. I couldn't go naked or do the horrible quests/puzzles. And I worried that the reality show would get in the way of me loving the story but it didn't. I really enjoyed it. *shifty eyed look* But not enough to actually want to be on a reality show. SMH. Not happening!

LOL!! What about the food!! *gag* There's no way I could stomach that weird stuff! And I agree, I enjoyed this book a lot but I still wouldn't sign on for reality tv, but especially a Survivor type show! I like indoor plumbing and AC too much! winking

sick OMG. The food! I could probably make due with their diet of coconut and roots and fish (although you'd probably be in h3ll) but not the challeng food! I was gagging just reading that! And indoor plumbing and AC are a MUST. I'm not cut out for camping. To me, "roughing it" is staying in a motel. Give me a nice hotel with all the modern conviences any day!

rolling on the floor *high five sistah* This is why we get along so well! big grin

True Dat Brah! winking So, what's your rating? I couldn't put it down, I read it in one setting and loved it so it's a big ole 5 from me.

I really enjoyed it. It made me laughout loud and swwon and I thought it was sweet too. I'm giving it a solid 4! big grin

Well, there you have it! Two enthusiastic recommendations!

“All right, guys,” Chip’s voice interrupted my self-loathing. “As I said before, everything you’re starting the game with is in that box right here.” He gestured at the row of colorful boxes lined up at his feet, each one no taller than his knee. “You’re not even allowed the clothes on your back. At the signal, find your box with your name and change into your gear. Once you have your gear, the game starts. This is your first challenge.”
I shivered. The game was beginning already. I was ready for this, though. All weekend, I’d brushed up on my skills that I’d learned from my last round on the island. I could make a decent fire with coconut fluff if given time and supplies. I was flexible and in shape. I studied puzzles and the local flora and fauna on the flight out so I wouldn’t be unawares. I was as ready as I could be.
“When I say go, you will change into your playing gear. Once you are changed, take your box and haul it across that line on the far side of the beach.” He pointed into the distance, and I could see a row of cameramen lined up next to a finish line with tiny waving flags. It was about a hundred yards away. Not a fun sprint, but a do-able one.
“The last team to change out of their clothing and into their Endurance Island gear will not be nominated for Judgment - they will be eliminated. Today is your first day in the game…and it will be the last for two players. This is immunity, Judgment, and execution all in one swoop.”
As a one, contestants started to cast confused looks at each other. We were all thinking the same thing - we were going to have to change clothes on the beach? In front of each other? Really? What the heck was up with that? This was national television, not cable, so I knew that any boobs or balls would be pixelated out, but I wasn’t relishing the thought of getting naked in front of anyone, much less fifteen other someones…
And an entire camera crew watching, to boot.
Okay. I told myself I could do this. I studied the box, thinking. Inside, there would probably be a team shirt designation or something along those lines. Maybe a slip dress. I could probably wiggle into something without flashing my boobs to the world.
“Everyone ready?” Chip raised his hand, a gleeful look on his face. He quickly lowered it. “Go!”
There was no time to think. Everyone hauled ass forward, sand spraying as sixteen pairs of feet ran toward the row of boxes across the beach. The wind whipped strands of hair into my eyes and Kip quickly shoved ahead of me. I slowed momentarily, letting the stampeding rush of bodies swarm ahead. It wouldn’t do me any good to push ahead of Kip only to be slammed to the ground by a rogue elbow. I trotted as close behind the others as I dared, and reached the colored boxes a few steps after the others.
My hands landed on my box the moment the first gasp of shock went up.
That made me jerk upright. I looked away from my box as I pulled off the lid, staring down at the line.
A woman was holding up a pair of sneakers and waving them in the air. “This is all that’s in my box!” Others were pulling off their lids and murmuring as well. No one sounded happy. For that matter, no one sounded like they knew what to do.
Others held up their items - no one had anything but shoes.
I tossed the lid of my yellow box aside. Sure enough, there was a pair of dainty yellow and white sneakers laid neatly inside my box. That was it. I picked them up and shook them out, in case there was a clue of some kind to where the rest of my gear might be hidden.
“I don’t understand,” Kip said. “No one has anything but shoes.”
“That’s right,” Chip boomed from nearby. “For this season of Endurance Island, you’ll be playing stripped of every luxury. And that includes clothing.”

This is a pen name for Jill Myles.
Jill Myles has been an incurable romantic since childhood. She reads all the 'naughty parts' of books first, looks for a dirty joke in just about everything, and thinks to this day that the Little House on the Prairie books should have been steamier.

After devouring hundreds of paperback romances, mythology books, and archaeological tomes, she decided to write a few books of her own - stories with a wild adventure, sharp banter, and lots of super-sexy situations. She prefers her heroes alpha and half-dressed, her heroines witty, and she loves nothing more than watching them overcome adversity to fall into bed together.
