 My Review

This is a quick read. Although, as I was reading, the story felt a little rushed. For example; when Zach and the rest of the contestants were competing on Jungle Survival, there was very little details given about the tasks that the contestants had to endure. It went from Zach arriving to four contestants. In addition, I was hoping to laugh more than I did. Part of this was because some of the jokes or comments made were too obvious. So, it felt forced. Plus, anything that Lenny said was just sexist. He is the type of guy that you would not want to turn your back on or be alone with.

There was no chemistry between Zach and Cleo; despite what Poppy may have thought or seen on television. Which, to be honest, I didn't really understand why Poppy was still pining for Zach. I did not feel a strong connection with the two of them. Overall, though, this was a good read.
