Body Games (Games #5)

by Jessica Clare
Released: 15th July 2014
Genre: New Adult Contemporary Romance

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?



My Review

Holey moley! This is my first experience reading a book by Jessica Clare and I am now addicted to this series. Body Games was absolutely fantastic! It’s like a naked version of the reality TV show, survivor and it was fun, hilarious and thick with wantonness. Body Games was certainly a game of the fittest, the most determined and the cleverest player. I also loved the growth of Annabelle, she was a character set out on revenge, but then realised that life is about playing the game.

Annabella Tucker is twenty two and is at a crossroads. After competing in season four of Endurance Island, Annabelle didn’t receive the best judicious result from editing and appeared to the audience as gullible, naive and promiscuous. College was put on hold until the stream of insults and laughter at her expense ended. In the meantime, debt was stacking up and waitressing was becoming tedious.

While working, Annabelle had a voicemail from Judy the casting director for Endurance Island and they are looking for previous seasons participants to come back for a new season. Annabelle is sceptical and doesn’t want to be portrayed like she was last time, but with a few incentives and the chance to change her national image, Annabelle takes the risk.

Everything that happened after that phone call was superfast. Annabelle was flown out the next day and prepared for departure to Fiji for filming. Once on the island, the games began and the challenges started.

This series was about power couples, therefore they were split into teams of two and given directions to their camp. Annabelle was determined to change her persona and uses every ounce of courage she has to survive the challenges; even though there are tough competitors. Amongst the competitors is a stud muffin of a man, with the physique of a body builder and the eyes of a storm cloud, Jendan Abercrombie. Jendan seems to be too courteous to be a contender and Annabelle instantly finds herself attracted to him.

Annabelle has a five point strategy to see her through the game: be less gullible, play hard, play for herself, fight dirty and no romance. Will she be able to hold onto her strategy or will Jendan compromise her ideas? Will Annabelle’s revenge be victorious? How will all 16 competitors handle the nude aspect? What will happen when the game is finished and they go back to their everyday lives? WHO WILL WIN THE MILLION DOLLARS?

Imagine living for six weeks on an island where you have to fend for yourself, totally naked and your partner is your enemy; the scenery would be fabulous, but……. Anyway, this is a fantastic new adult romance with everything, from drama to fun, from lust to romance, humour to feisty alliances. The unpredictability was fabulous, not knowing who was going to be voted off and Annabelle will now have one helluva tan. This is a must read to all new adult readers.
