About this ebook

Steamy small town romance full of heart and humor! USA Today Bestselling Series!

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?

This feel-good romance stands alone with a swoonworthy happy-ever-after! No cliffhangers.

I started reading this book because i loved its blurb in goodreads. But, i liked the book less, main reason for it was its length, it got little boring at the middle. Especially the parts where Liz was so much into taking care of Daisy and her nephew. I mean, it was sweet that Liz was so family oriented but she was too much sometimes. I felt like she should think about herself sometimes. But, i liked some things about the book very much. Loved Maggie and her craziness and everything! Ryan, was great.

4.5 Stars You must read this one! I'm so glad I did. The humor was a major draw for me, but these characters pulled me right in. All of them did. I can tell you right now I'm reading the rest of the series and so glad they're out. Liz is plan awesome. I felt for her, but the journey she took in this one is one she so deserves. She always responsible rule follower, but Ryan brings out her wild side. I love how these two balance each other out. Oh my gosh Ryan's grandma is a hoot! She's a favorite character for sure! I couldn't ask for more. The humor and feels were an awesome combination!

This was a sweet small town romance about an uptight woman who learns to let go and embrace life (a little). Liz has had a crush on Ryan since high school, but also suffered an embarrassing incident that makes it hard for her to talk to him even though she is now around 30. She has to deal with him when she takes a summer job keeping an eye on his grandmother. I really liked the relationship between Liz and Maggie, and how Liz took a step back and enjoyed Maggie's lust for life rather than judging her. Ryan is an emotional blockhead, but eventually hr does come to terms with things and makes changes. I also liked how Ryan's perspective on Liz's Incident was so different. Liz has a sister with whom she's close. She has to learn to let her sister take care of things rather than rushing in to manage everything. Liz also has a best friend who is quite close and blows hot and cold about her own love life. I can see upcoming books with each of them and Ryan's brothers in the works. However, it is also clear that the setup will be very different. I received a copy free in exchange for an honest review
