Summary: If being forced to team up with reality TV’s favorite bad girl wasn’t enough, falling for her brother might just make this reality show a real nightmare. Paige Anderson agrees to be on a new reality show called Treasure Trekkers, a show where contestants use handheld GPS units to find hidden caches filled with prizes, with her good friend Cassidy. But when Cassidy is unable to compete, Chip Cormack, the show’s producer, steps in with a last-minute replacement to be Paige’s partner - Zoe Oliver, reality TV’s favorite bad girl. Jack Miles (aka Miles) is a mountain climber with the body to prove it. Miles convinced his climbing partner Ben to come on the show with him for one reason - to prove to Ben that they can still hike together, regardless of the fact that Ben lost his foot in a tragic accident. Miles isn’t about to let anything get in his way of winning - not even beautiful Paige. But when Miles and Paige are thrown into an alliance with their teammates, working closely together leads to more than just good strategy. Can Paige steal Miles’ heart while surviving Zoe long enough to win the game?
Review: I received a copy of this novel from Heather Thurmeier, in exchange for my honest opinion, and I absolutely LOVED it! After reading Falling For You last year, and declaring it as one of my most favorite reads of 2012, I couldn't wait to read Paige's story. The story picks up with Paige Anderson and Cassidy Quinn competing in the game show, Treasure Trekkers. Paige soon finds out that Cassidy is unable to compete, she ends up being stuck with Zoe Oliver. We also meet Team Everest, which consists of Miles and his best friend (who lost his foot in an accident), Ben. As the story goes along, Paige and Miles grow closer, until she finds out about his past with Zoe. I've never been the type of person to sit there and watch Survivor type reality shows, but I was completely enthralled in this novel. There was one point in the novel, towards the end, where I thought Paige was a little too hard on Miles and could've been a bit more understanding, but it ended up coming together very well. There were so many things I loved about this novel, but the one thing I absolutely loved was that we got to see Zoe a little deeper than we got to in Falling For You. Overall, this was a great read. Definitely one of those, "stop everything you're doing and click buy" novels. I can't wait to read Zoe's story!!
