Review: Prey Island by Kendra Moreno
5 Stars | 2023 Favorite | Awesome Fun, Highly recommend this RH survival story | Amazon + Goodreads
So. . .that just happened and it was glorious in every blood-drenched, sexy, crazy, wild moment of this ride that I didn’t want to get off of. The premise is simple, Billie, a stripper/dancer, is kidnapped and wakes in the belly of a plane locked in cages amongst many other men. What happens next is just pure crazy sauce and it is a good time.
Billie is a likable character from the get-go, she’s tenacious and her will to live and survive the ordeal happening to her is off the charts. She may be a rabbit and the ultimate prey but she’ll end up becoming a vicious woman who fights back to not only save herself but the others she encounters and teams up with.
On the plane we are introduced to a Japanese man dressed in a suit and looking way to calm for the situation that is happening around them, after he pays a kindness to Billie, their is a kindredness that begins between the two of them a tiny bit of trust in the midst of chaos.
As the story progresses, you feel the heat, the jungle, the danger, and the attitude. The mega-rich off-grid secret society likes to kidnap people and hunt them for sport, but they made a mistake when they brought Billie, the only woman in a sea of men to the island to hunt. Because while Billie may be a woman, men are always underestimating the true strength that women have to endure and Billie has this in spades.
“This rabbit had teeth. And she was tired of being the Prey.”
I loved this book, it’s a crazy good time. Did I roll my eyes a couple of times? Yes. Was I concerned about the hygienics of the sexual activity in the novel? Yes. Did I enjoy the craziness taking place, abso-freaking-lutely. This book is pure fun, there were times I was genuinely laughing out loud, I loved Billie and I loved her men. I loved the story from beginning to end, I thought it was well written, well-paced, and that ending! I highly recommend picking up this adventurous why-choose RH novel and am so ready to dive into book two.
While Prey Island could be read as a stand-alone, I have a feeling that book two is going to rock my socks off.
“This little rabbit is going to eat the rich. This little rabbit will swallow them whole. . .”
Welcome to Prey Island. . .
Billie watches enough serial killer shows to know she’s in deep trouble when she finds herself kidnapped and shoved in a cage with dozens of other people. What she doesn’t expect is to be dropped off on a remote island, given weapons, and told to run.
The Hounds have been released and they say she’s the prey.
Now, Billie is being hunted just like everyone else on the island. Trapped with nowhere to go, she finds herself teaming up with others in order to survive. Four men set her ablaze with their touch and threaten to corrupt her every moral, each as dangerous as the Hounds who hunt them. She may not be built for Prey Island, but she won’t be going down without a fight.
This rabbit has teeth and the only way out is to
