Introducing the Justiss Alliance, an elite team of heroes out to do right. In Wild on You, one untamable SEAL meets a woman who handles the wildest sort of animals—until she herself becomes the hunted.
When Rick Yarbrough, aka Risk, a discharged SEAL with a taste for danger, joins the Justiss Alliance, his first assignment seems like a baby-sitting gig: He must guard an out-of-control general’s daughter. Then he meets his charge.
Addie Wunder is no baby. She’s a dedicated animal-rights activist who isn’t above breaking the law if innocent creatures are threatened. But her work has made her a lot of powerful enemies. If she doesn’t stop, she may just turn herself into an endangered species.
Risk’s mission is to keep Addie out of trouble. But as they grow closer, Addie becomes so much more than a job. And the more he has to lose, the more Risk is willing to put his own life on the line—for her cause, her safety, and her sweet-hot embrace.
Rick “Risk” Yarbrough’s first assignment with The Justiss Alliance turns out to be a babysitting job…so he thinks. Addie Wunder, an animal rights activist and daughter of a five-star general, has made a few enemies. One of them means her harm so Dad is forcing bodyguard protection on her against her protests.
She’s not completely convinced she’s in danger so she doesn’t roll out the welcome mat for Risk. Addie’s a knockout and she’s also very, very good at what she does. Her life is completely devoted to the animals and this attraction she’s feeling for the ex-Navy SEAL is an unwanted DIS-traction.
Romance and suspense
Despite starting with a bang and ending with a very exciting and tension filled climax, the balance leans more towards romance in this story. Risk has a wicked sense of humor that keeps things lively. Addie’s no slouch and matches him quip for quip.
There’s one scene that will always be memorable and it involves a little public hanky-panky. It was outstanding. You’ll have to read it for yourself.
The bottom line
I really enjoyed this story despite preferring a bit more suspense. The romance worked even when these two did the denial dance. The characters are appealing and the other Justiss Alliance teammates are a big draw. I’m still in with this series.
