Jaci Burton: Surviving Demon Island

She’s all curves and combat boots.

He’s six feet of lean, dangerous male.

Join them in a game of survival.

That’s as real – and hot – as it gets.

What’s America’s top female action star doing on a tropical island shrouded in secrecy? To Gina Bliss, competing in a survival-type reality show is a nice change from fending off on-screen villains. Until she meets real-life action hero Derek Marks. A survival specialist in a tight black T and sexy stubble, he’s arousing every bad-boy fantasy she’s ever had…and testing her survival skills to the max.

Martial arts, jungle warfare – Derek’s done it all. But his latest mission is more dangerous than a stick of dynamite. Try telling that to the sexy, adrenaline-pumped actress who’s got his libido racing off the charts. As the heat rises between them and real-life violence erupts, suddenly Derek and Gina are on the run…and when they uncover a secret so explosive it could blow the lid of their so-called reality show, these two unlikely heroes are about to discover what surviving’s really about….

Surviving Demon Island is the first book in Jaci Burton‘s Demon Hunters series.

It’s a page-turner, but there are many buts.

The new people, Shay, Olivia, Trace etc. they just accept that demons exist? Why? No questions? I mean, I’d expect someone, especially Gina, to have been upset that the whole thing was a set-up.

I might believe that Derek and Gina are meant to be together, but Gina dropping her Hollywood life just like that? *snaps fingers* No. In the first section of the book, you get the impression that Gina very much enjoys her Hollywood life. She might have ‘out-grown’ that life, but it still annoys me that she comes off as dropping everything for Derek.

The only reason I can see for the book having such a huge cast is sequel bait. But with the excerpt of the next book, Hunting The Demon, at the back of the book, it didn’t need sequel bait.

This rates 3 out of 5.
