3.5 starsBecca is off to Costa Rica on a research trip, in her role as a scientist. A group of them will travel into the depths of the jungle, guided by ex-military man Matt Ritter. Just the trek to their temporary location is challenging enough for Becca after she needs assistance from Matt to get there.She is then miffed to find out that she will also be rooming with him. These two in close proximity to each other for the length of their stay seems like a time bomb waiting to go off. Becca is frustrated that she needs to rely on Matt for help and he is just as frustrated by her fiery attitude.Now if I was watching a movie with these two as lead characters I would have already worked out that they were very attracted to each other and that their eventual coupling is inevitable. Becca is attracted to Matt and her way of dealing with it is to be cold and off hand with him. Matt would be quite happy to 'remedy' Becca's grumpiness but her stubborn behaviour leads him to think he may not have a chance with her.This is a quick read, well written and in a really unique setting.Popular Wild Games By Mila Rossi is a Ebook Despite warnings of annoying mosquitos and beastly spiders, Becca Glover couldn t be excited about her expedition to Costa Rica Rooming with Matt Ritter, however, is an inconvenience she doesn t see coming He wields a machete, shaves with a knife and needs to wear a decent amount of clothes to cover the muscles she can t stop staring at Hired to lead a group of sciDespite warnings of annoying mosquitos and beastly spiders, Becca Glover couldn t be excited about her expedition to Costa Rica Rooming with Matt Ritter, however, is an inconvenience she doesn t see coming He wields a machete, shaves with a knife and needs to wear a decent amount of clothes to cover the muscles she can t stop staring at Hired to lead a group of scientists through the jungle, Matt is convinced the fiery redhead is intent on making his job harder than it needs to be Rebecca doesn t listen and seems to invite danger at every turn Her attitude is as much of a distraction as her curves and emerald green eyes Now if he could only pay as much attention to his job as he does to her, their one month adventure would fly by without a hitch Hot temperatures, wild animals and a shared tree house are just the beginning of Becca and Matt s obstacles The real challenge lies in surviving each other..

Good Book Wild Games The heroine was more annoying than the mosquitos.I started Wild Games looking forward to a quick and sexy read set in the jungle. I sort of got what I was asking for. The hero of the story is Matt, a security officer, who takes on security work protecting research students studying plants in Costa Rica. He’s handsome, tough and handles a machete well. Becca is on her first expedition and really looking forward to the opportunity to take her studies to the next level. When the two meet…it is definitely not love at first sight.This is a novella, so a lot needs to be covered in a short story. Contents wise, the author did OK. I wouldn’t have minded getting a bit more info on why and how a security guard is taking people into the jungle. Ex military? Lived in a jungle when he was a kid? All we know is that he’s done it a few times and can handle a knife well.Here’s my problem…considering this is a novella, we don’t have a lot of time to get to like the characters. Now Matt, I had no problems liking, he was protective and sexy. But Becca, holy shamoly, she was bloody annoying. She was rude, condescending and ungrateful. Even towards the end she couldn’t understand the fact that her words and actions were mean and uncalled for. I could NOT see what he saw in her. She went into the jungle not at all prepared for the animals and wildlife she would come in contact with. To walk away from the group, because she’s inquisitive, is just plain stupid.I think this author has huge potential. I liked the storyline and the hero Matt, but considering it’s a short story there isn’t enough time for us to…come to love…try and understand…See where Becca was coming from. Unfortunately, this made their romance a tad unbelievable for me. Give me more characters like Matt and less characters like Becca and I will definitely be reading more from this author.I received a complimentary copy of this story from the author for an honest review.
