The Opposite of Wild by Kylie Gilmore - Review/Giveaway

The Opposite of Wild
Book One Clover Park Series
By: Kylie Gilmore

Unleash the wild woman…?

Ex-cop Ryan O'Hare takes one look at buttoned-up control freak Liz Garner and just itches to loosen the woman up. Not that he’s into her. Because a woman like that comes with way too many expectations. Not to mention, she practically works for him, and he didn’t hire Liz to watch after his beloved Harley-stealing Gran so he could turn Liz loose in his bed. Still, there’s something about her, a hidden wild side, that makes him wonder what it would take.

Liz must be crazy to work for the insensitive, arrogant, horribly…hot man she's avoided for years. Unfortunately, she needs the money and Ryan's grandmother needs a keeper. (Midnight tango lessons and ziplines with Gran, anyone?) Ryan's rare smile and swaggering confidence have Liz torn between throwing her favorite pinot grigio at his head or throwing herself at him. Can this control freak find a way to let loose with the tough, no-strings guy who once broke her heart?

The Opposite of Wild really surprised me, I was very much in love with Liz Garner right away. She’s a bit uptight but willing and ready to drop everything for family and I loved that about her. It’s something I easily relate to, I would do anything for my little sister though in Liz’a case it’s her older sister she has to watch out for.

Throw in the man she loved as a teenager but after a humiliating incident she’s afraid to get close to him. It’s full of some really funny moments as well as some awkward times where I really wanted to say just talk to each other!

Ryan isn't ready to settle down but every time he gets near Liz he wants more out of life. I enjoyed that Liz made him want to be a better man, and he was already a pretty amazing man. 

I will definitely keep my eye out for more Clover Park stories from Kylie Gilmore. She’s an author to watch because she writes a story full of humor and great secondary characters that bring out that feeling of family that we all know well.

I highly recommend this for fans of funny, quirky and heartwarming romance.

I received a copy in exchange for an honest review. I was not compensated for my review.
