I received an ARC of this book from Tasty Book Tours in exchange for an honest review and as part of the book’s blog tour promotions.
So, this review is quite difficult for me to write because I am torn between loving this book and just “liking” it. I know there shouldn’t be any middle ground, but I can’t help it. Let me start first with the fact that I love the friends-to-lovers trope. I could read as many books with the friends-to-lovers theme and still not get bored with all the variations that can happen to the stories. Aside from that, I also love Melissa Foster’s books. Those two facts alone should guarantee that I love this book, right?
Here’s the part that makes me hesitant: I couldn’t get a lock on the relationship between the heroine and her supposedly “boyfriend”. I am sure that he is a nice, almost perfect guy and all, but I couldn’t reconcile the fact that he’d let his woman, one he asked to marry, go on her annual camping trip with the hero, one he knows has a complicated relationship with her. Okay, maybe that was a good thing because it just showed that he and the heroine weren’t right for each other and that the real conflict was between the main characters and their push and pull kind of relationship. That’s the only thing I wasn’t completely down with in this book.
However, everything else was great, as always. I think Jackson is probably the wildest out of the Wild brothers. Then again, I still have a fourth book to read. Well, I think that aside from the weird relationship that the heroine had with the men in her life, this book was hot, a little kinky, and still a lot sweet. Therefore, I guess I should say that I am happy, and I loved it. I am excited for the fourth book, and I’m already wishing there are more installments. Maybe a novella that would feature all Wild boys with the HEAs or something. Oh well, one can only hope.
