He has everything under control. Except her.
Reece Wilde put everything in his life on the backburner to protect his brothers and their struggling company, Wilde Security. With a major contract on the line, Reece can’t afford any mistakes…like getting caught in a red-hot, X-rated moment with wild child Shelby Bremer, who’s more trouble than he can handle. Now he’s being blackmailed.
Shelby’s mile-long impulsive streak gets her in more trouble than she’d like to admit. Between her sister’s wedding, her coffee shop set on fire, and getting down and dirty with the groom’s brother, things are definitely coming off the rails. With both their careers and their safety on the line, Reece is determined to keep them both safe…even if it means a Vegas-style shotgun wedding.
But gambling on a wild card—and a wild soul—is risky…and sometimes, it can get a guy killed.
Their parents’ death twenty years earlier forced fifteen year old Reece Wilde and his elder brother to step up and take on the task of providing for and raising their younger brothers to avoid them going into foster care. Reece has remained stuck in that role all these years and on the verge of securing a lucrative partnership, he cannot afford even a whiff of scandal. Which is exactly what Shelby Bremer would bring to his life. Shelby is his sister-in-law’s younger sister but she’s also a trouble magnet with her wild ways and unconventional style and the very opposite of the kind of woman he needs, but Reece can’t stay away from her to save his life. When potentially damaging video and pictures of them in compromising positions surface, Reece faces the choice of giving into blackmail or losing everything he’s worked for.
Shelby’s impulsive nature means that she hasn’t always made the best decisions but she’s determined to show that she’s matured beyond all of that. However, she can’t seem to shake off her past and finding herself in a tough spot, she decides a quickie marriage to Reece would be the solution to both their problems. Reece knows that Shelby has a lot of secrets that may be damaging to him, but he can’t stop himself from coming to her rescue, even if it means marrying her to keep her safe. The only thing is that their marriage may have created more problems than it solved because trouble seems to be closing in on them from all sides and with so many possible suspects, it’s hard to figure out who the bad guys are. Their intense physical attraction to each other as well as Shelby’s secrets and the danger they face have them teetering on the edge of disaster.
Reece is exactly what I imagined. The nerd in a family of rambunctious boys, everything he’s done has been with the goal of taking care of his family. So much so that he neglected even his personal and social life to focus on that goal. For the first time in his life, he meets a woman who tempts him away from what has driven his all choices but knowing that she’s in his life temporarily, can he take that chance?
Shelby’s childhood wasn’t exactly an ideal one and she made her fair share of mistakes growing up but she turned it all around with hard work and determination. While she and Reece are opposites in every way that counts, they are very perfect for each other. Shelby brings color and lightness into Reece’s life and makes him sit up and enjoy it and Reece grounds her, accepts her and her colorful style (although not initially) and encourages her to be herself. They have become my favorite couple in the series so far.
One reason why I love this series is the bond the brothers share and the fact that they are always there for each other when needed, no questions asked.
WILDE AT HEART was worth the wait! Ms. Burrows blends passion, intrigue, danger and suspense into a fast paced, thrilling and absolutely enjoyable read. I had so much fun reading this. Reece and Shelby made me laugh and cringe at their funny and embarrassing moments and I am looking forward to the rest of the series, just please don’t take so long to get the next book out!
