Jungle Rock by Caroline James – Happy 1st Birthday!

Title: Jungle Rock 

Author: Caroline James

Rating: 4/5

This is a light-hearted romance novella that will definitely appeal to fans of ‘I’m a Celebrity, Get Me Out of Here’ fans and anyone who is looking for a delightful second chance romance. It is an easy read, with two pairs of characters who have split with their partners because of betrayal. The main character is Zach, a celebrity chef who was photographed cheating on his fiancee, Poppy. He’s off to the jungle in Australia, still heartbroken at the split with the love of his life but understanding why she finished with him after photographs of him and another woman went viral in the media. Poppy is off to Disneyland working with another chef, still distraught at Zach’s betrayal but she can’t resist seeing how he gets on! Then there’s Bob, Zach’s manager . . . . . and Zach’s Mum and Godmother, Jo and Hattie.

This is a short but well paced, humorous story with several different threads intertwining to create an enjoyable, action packed read. I’m happy that we didn’t learn too much about the jungle challenges Zach and the other contestants faced! There is little interaction between the couples so it is very different to most contemporary romances, but it is still an enjoyable read with a delightful ending! I understand this is part of a series but I’ve not read any of the other books and can truthfully say this works well as a standalone. So if you’re looking for a fun, short romance, look no further – go grab yourself a copy of this one!

I requested and received a gifted copy of this novel, with no obligation. This is my honest review after choosing to read it.

Synopsis

Handsome young chef Zach Docherty is feeling the heat. Following an exposé in a national newspaper, his fiancée Poppy Dunlop has broken their engagement. Heartbroken at the thought of life without Poppy, Zach drowns his sorrows and, when his agent suggests that Zach becomes a contestant in a reality TV show, Jungle Survival, he reluctantly agrees. Plunged deep in the jungle, into a bizarre mix of talent and trials, Zach meets glamour model Cleo Petra, and the cameras go crazy. Will Zach survive and be crowned Jungle King? Or will his latest exploits push Poppy further away…
