About Stuck on You
If being forced to team up with reality TV’s favorite bad girl wasn’t enough, falling for her brother might just make this reality show a real nightmare.
Paige Anderson agrees to be on a new reality show called Treasure Trekkers, a show where contestants use handheld GPS units to find hidden caches filled with prizes, with her good friend Cassidy. But when Cassidy is unable to compete, Chip Cormack, the show’s producer, steps in with a last-minute replacement to be Paige’s partner – Zoe Oliver, reality TV’s favorite bad girl.
Jack Miles (aka Miles) is a mountain climber with the body to prove it. Miles convinced his climbing partner Ben to come on the show with him for one reason – to prove to Ben that they can still hike together, regardless of the fact that Ben lost his foot in a tragic accident. Miles isn’t about to let anything get in his way of winning – not even beautiful Paige.
But when Miles and Paige are thrown into an alliance with their teammates, working closely together leads to more than just good strategy. Can Paige steal Miles’ heart while surviving Zoe long enough to win the game?
Excerpt Stuck on You
“I don’t believe it,” Ben said. He walked in between Paige and Miles and looked up into the tree hanging over the trail. “They are really sneaky.”
Ben reached up and plucked something from the branch, directly above the GPS unit on the ground. Whatever it was, it was tiny. Literally the size of an acorn.
“What is it?” Paige asked, stepping closer to get a better look.
“A nano-cache. I read about these online on the geocaching websites, but I’ve never seen one in real life.”
“That’s what we were trying to find?” Zoe sneered at the acorn as if it had purposefully wronged her.
“Yep. It was exactly where it was supposed to be.” Ben beamed triumphantly.
Zoe held out her hand. “Awesome. I’ll take that now, thanks.”
“The hell you will,” Miles said, stepping in front of her as if Ben needed some kind of protection. “We found it. And if we’re the first ones to open it, the prize inside is ours.”
“Like hell it is,” she fired back. “We were here first. It’s ours.”
Miles laughed then turned his back on her. “Sure, you may have gotten here first but that’s not what the rules say. It’s the team who finds the cache that gets the prize.”
Paige moved closer, watching as Ben twisted off the miniature acorn top. He pulled out a tiny piece of paper and unfolded it at least six or seven times before it was large enough to read. The cache number card was easy to spot, but there was another paper with it. A smile grew on Ben’s face.
“Ten thousand dollars.”
