T.J. Wilder is the perfect package of breathtaking adventure and raw sex appeal. Even better, he's about to reconnect with the one woman he's never been able to forget. . .

Get Your Pulse Racing To Harley, the landscape around Wishful, California, is exhilarating, untamed, and more than a little dangerous. The same could be said for T.J. Wilder, who's invited himself along on her trek to study a rare coyote. Harley's career is riding on this trip, and she doesn't need a stubborn, incredibly sexy distraction. But T.J. is a professional guide who knows when to stay back and when to provide invaluable expertise--just like he's done since they were in high school. And Harley, as usual, is torn between throttling him and giving in to the raw attraction that's been smoldering all these years. T.J. knows how proud and capable Harley is, but he's damned sure not letting her put herself at risk when there are illegal hunters in the area. She needs him, with the same soul-stirring urgency that he's always craved her. And here, in this beautiful place days from civilization, he'll finally have a chance to prove it--over and over again. . .

All good things must come to an end and that’s what INSTANT TEMPTATION is to the Wilder series. But Jill Shalvis saved the best for last!

T.J. is the Wilder bother that stays gone for long periods of time taking clients on weeks to month-long treks into the mountains. He uses these trips to feel free and to avoid one spunky blonde tow truck driver that gets his motor running.

Harley is said tow truck drive and she has her hands full taking care of her hippie parents and little sister. Harley is short on her rent and eating cheap so that she can foot the bills for her family. She does all this while working a full-time job and trying to finish college and working an intern job for free in hopes she will get her dream job.

T.J. and Harley bicker like two kids fight over the last piece of candy. But what neither of them will admit is that all the bickering gets them both hot and bothered in another way. Harley does her best to stay away from T.J. because of one night they spent together back in high school. Harley thinks that T.J. doesn’t remember the night because she means nothing to him even though her high school crush on him has never died. T.J. can’t stop thinking about Harley and can’t figure out why she can’t stand him.

After the two open up to each other during a trip in the woods all becomes clear and they start to work on a HEA. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again . . . second chance at love in contemporary romances is one of my favorite tropes.

I’m sad to say that it took me 3 books to get into Liisa Ivary’s narration. Now I’m sold on her voice for the Wilder gang and wish there were more books to listen to. If you’re looking for a fun and sexy small town romance series you should pick up Jill Shalvis’ Wilder series and I recommend it on audio. They are fun and fast listens with just the right about of heat.

Stone is my favorite Wilder! (so far) Instant Gratification by Jill Shalvis

Stone is my favorite Wilder! (so far) Instant Gratification by Jill Shalvis

 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 […]

Balls Out! Instant Attraction by Jill Shalvis

Balls Out! Instant Attraction by Jill Shalvis

      First Thought: I really enjoy Jill Shalvis’ brand of contemporary romance; funny and sexy. The Story: After a near death experience Katie now has the attitude that she’s going to live life with her “balls out”. Never mind she doesn’t have any balls. Cam has been away from home for a year, licking his wounds from a failed relationship and an accent that cost him, his sports career. The two meet when Cam finds Katie (aka Goldie Locks) in his bed after he returns home from his time away. The Romance(s): Katie and Cam has chemistry and a lot of sexual tension through out INSTANT ATTRACTION. There are a few times when they think they’re about to get lucky, only to have something […]
