Review: Surviving Demon Island by Jaci Burton

Surviving Demon Island is the first book in the Demon Hunters series by Jaci Burton and a Dell Romance.

Book Blurb:

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 off their so-called reality show, these two unlikely heroes are about to discover what surviving's really about. . . .

Surviving Demon Island was a pretty good read. :)

Gina Bliss is a movie star who is also an adrenalin junkie. She does all of her own stunts and is most happy when carrying a weapon. But these are movies and even though Gina really gets into her action scenes, when the director calls 'cut' - no one is really dead on the floor.

Derek Marks is ex-military. He is trained in all forms of weapons and combat. And he is carrying a secret - a secret that even he doesn't know.

When Gina is contacted about doing a reality type survival series she jumps at the chance to prove herself more than a movie star.

But what she encounters is nothing scripted - and no one is going to call 'cut'.

I give Surviving Demon Island 4 out of 5 stars and have the next installment, Hunting the Demon - on the shelf.
