Stone Wilder is no less a daredevil bad boy than the rest of his brothers, especially when the thrill of a lifetime is about to arrive in a surprising package. . .

The Doctor Is In Deep

Wishful, California, is 3000 miles from Dr. Emma Sinclair's last job in a New York City ER. Running her father's clinic for a summer, Emma treats bee stings, stomach flu, and the occasional pet cat. Then there's Stone Wilder: gorgeous, laid-back, and irritating beyond belief. Emma loathes him. Almost as much as she wants to throw him on her examining table and break every doctor-patient rule in the book. . .

Paging Dr. Sinclair. . .

INSTANT GRATIFICATION is the second book in Jill Shalvis’ Wilder series about three brothers that share the same last name. This time around we get middle brother, Stone’s story.

Dr. Emma is uptight and only in Wishful for a short time (so she thinks) to run her father’s practice while he recovers from a heart attack. Emma is use to running an ER in New York and the very slow pace of Wishful is driving her nuts. But not as nuts as the sexy Stone.

Stone is the glue that keeps the Wilder family together. He’s the peace keeper, the one that does all the things the others don’t want to do like the paperwork for Wilder Adventures and he’s sexy as hell. And he can’t wait to get Dr. Emma to loosen up and see what kind of fun they could have together.

Emma and Stone dance around each other for a while but once they start dancing together they really heat of the “pages” of INSTANT GRATIFICATION. If you’re looking for a romance where the guy is an alpha outdoorsman and the gal is a city girl who needs a little dirtying up then you need to check out INSTANT GRATIFICATION by Jill Shalvis.


Liisa Ivary’s narration is growing on me. Liisa does an excellent job with the male voices and she manages to change her voice for the females characters where her non-dialogue voice is different, instead of it being the same as the heroine’s which it is nice. I still think that Liisa’s voice sounds a little too mature for these younger couples but that’s something I’m willing to over look. I can’t wait to listen to the next book, INSTANT TEMPTATION.

I coexist with my husband of 15 years, our 11-year-old son and two chilled cats in the Deep South.

After 17 years I've finally finished my BA in English (no I do not want to be a teacher). Before majoring in English I would not have touched anything labeled "classic", but I have enjoyed a few along the way in my college career.

While I hated to read growing up, I am now an avid book reader and audiobook listener. I love rejecting reality one book at a time. I only read fiction within my favorite (at least to date) genres which include: most romance (paranormal, contemporary, D/s, BDSM, M/M)Urban Fantasy, and a few YA (mostly PNR or UF from favorite adult authors, but I'm slowly stepping out of my comfort zone after enjoying a few contemporary YA novels in adolescent literature class I took).

  1. I like the Wilder Series too!! I read Instant Gratification when someone (I forget who now) gave me the paperback copy. Stone is awesome.

    I’m actually reading Instant Temptation now, but have had to set it aside with all the holiday festivities going on… Hopefully, I’ll start reading it again soon.

  2. I think I might line this one up for my long trip, I don’t want to listen to anything too heavy and complicated coz DH always interrupts me..LOL
    I listen to books while he listens to Howard Stern…LOL We’re a match made in heaven..lOL
