Robin Kaye fast became a favorite author for me back with the first book of hers that I read and I haven’t missed one since. Wild Thing, her newest, is another fun and spicy read! Robin’s books are the perfect escape for me. I don’t have to think too hard or try to figure anything out. I get to just sit back, enjoy, and get more than a few laughs while reading her books. Now, most everyone who reads my blog knows I’m not a fan of romance books but Robin’s are different for me. They are romantic comedies and always leave me feeling happy and I think we can all use that once in a while.
In Wild Thing, we meet goth girl Toni who works for Action Models as a manager in New York. She loves the city so when she finds herself out on a shoot in the mountains she is none too happy. She’s not an outdoorsy type girl at all and has an intense fear of the outdoors since being lost in the woods as a little girl. Then she meets the tour guide for the shoot – one very gorgeous Hunter Kincaid. What a feast for the eyes this man is! He is one of those go-getter type of men. He knows what he wants and generally gets what he wants too. So, while nobody is more surprised than him, he falls for Toni from the first moment he sees her. It’s just too bad Toni doesn’t seem to want to fall for him too.
Now I have to tell you that I met the Kincaid brothers in another book of Robins that I read. Hunter’s brothers are named Trapper and Fisher and all these boys got their names because of what their father was doing while they were being born. I’ve always gotten such a kick out of that. To top things off their sister’s name is Karma and truthfully she’s the real handful of the family. I’m hoping to see a book just centered on her one of these days. Anyhow, turns out the whole family is out at the camp and they can all see that Hunter has fallen for Toni and they seem to think it’s pretty funny that she isn’t just falling all over their brother like most women do.
Eventually though Toni can’t resist Hunter’s charms but she is reserved. Toni has never really known love and family and all that kind of stuff so she has a hard time really giving of herself. Throughout their time at the camp though Hunter wears her down and she starts to come around. Yet we all know that in any good romance things don’t just go along smoothly and this one is no different. Hunter makes a big oops and Toni packs up and goes home to New York. Not being one to give up though Hunter heads off after her. Now, is there a happily ever after – well I guess you’ll just have to read it for yourself to find out!
I liked Toni and seeing her finally open herself up to love was nice. I loved having the Kincaid brothers and Karma in this book. They really are a great family and I hope to see more of them in future books, especially Karma as I said before. Grandpa Joe was back in this book too and he is a narly old man who is absolutely hilarious. He loves to rule over his family but at his heart he’s a softie and I always get a kick out of any situation he ends up commandeering. All in all, another great read from Robin and as usual I’ll be patiently awaiting her next book! Just as a side note there is bad language and a lot of spicy hanky panky goings-on so if that isn’t your thing, then it’s likely you don’t want to give this book a try. For me though, I don’t mind either so I had a great time reading this book.
