About this ebook

After being ditched at the altar, Emmy Shaw’s heart, like her dented food truck, is definitely not open for business. Deeply in debt to her parents and evicted from her apartment, she takes a friend’s drunken dare and fills out an application for a new dating-adventure reality show. She never expects to be chosen—or to get a chance at the show’s huge cash prize, which could put her life back on track.


But when she’s abandoned in the middle of the jungle two months later wearing only a bathing suit and a backpack, she questions if being on the show might be even worse than the #emmytrashtruck hate brigade she left back home. Then she meets her fellow cast members—including sexy, inscrutable Wes—and starts to reconsider, wondering if maybe money’s not all she stands to gain from this experience.


After a year of abysmal failures, this summer of cave treks, jungle hikes, impromptu talent shows, and a sexy flirtmance turns out to be just the thing to help Emmy rebuild her shattered confidence. She signed up for the show to hide from the mess her life had become, but this escape from reality might be just what she needs to find herself.

This book was the perfect mix of two of my guilty pleasures - rom com books and reality dating shows. It reminded me a lot of the show Love Island, but BETTER because you get inside one of the person’s minds as she navigates through the craziness that is Big Wild Love Adventure! After being left at the altar, crashing her food truck, and becoming a viral hashtag (#emmystrashtruck), Emmy drunkenly applies for a new reality TV show called Big Wild Love Adventure. Next thing she knows she’s in a jungle in Panama competing for the chance to win $250,000. Emmy desperately needs this money to turn her life around, so she’s not all that focused on the “love” part of Big Wild Love Adventure. UNTIL she meets her hot and sexy fellow cast member, Wes. To many Wes may seem too boring or serious, but throughout their journey in Panama Emmy starts to see how thoughtful, kind, and witty he can be. While I loved watching Emmy and Wes’ connection grow throughout their journey, I also loved watching Emmy’s emotional healing. This girl has been put through SO MUCH in the past year. It made me so happy to see her begin to realize her worth and how awesome she is. Needless to say, this book is AMAZING. I literally felt like I was watching a show as I read the book. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone! Thank you to the author, publisher, and NetGalley for this ARC!
