Overall star rating --- 3.5 stars
About the book:
Despite warnings of annoying mosquitos and beastly spiders, Becca Glover couldn’t be more 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.

The review --
The first thing I thought when reading this book was - gee, glad it's not me out there. I'll give Becca her props for even going down there. But poor Matt, he got more than he bargained for.
I like the characters of Becca and Matt, and the book is a fun read too. It's not your typical romance novel because of the setting, that I really like, and it sets the book apart. I only wish that the ending had been a bit longer, or maybe had an epilogue, as I would of liked a bit more at the end.
But overall, it's a very good book, and I like it a lot.
