Robin Kaye has been a favorite author of mine for quite a while now and reading her latest Call Me Wild reminds me of why I enjoy her books so much. I’ve never been much for romance novels but Robin’s characters are so awesome and her stories are so fun that I find myself losing track of all time reading them and that pretty much explains why I keep going back for more and will continue to as long as she keeps writing.
In Call Me Wild we are lucky enough to revisit the Kincaid family, this time with Fisher Kincaid. I first met the Kincaid family in Wild Thing and they have to be the funniest and craziest family out there and I love them! Fisher is one of the Kincaid brothers – Trapper being his older brother and Hunter his twin brother (yes there’s a story behind the names but you have to read the book to find that out). Oh, and of course we can’t forget their little sister Karma who has to he my favorite character. She is spunky, mouthy, a troublemaker, and absolutely hilarious.
Jessie is a sportswriter without a job since she got laid off unexpectedly. She decides this would be the perfect time to get her book written and goes to stay at her best friend’s place in Boise. Her first few days in Boise she keeps running into the same man who just happens to be Fisher and she’s convinced he must be some kind of stalker, not to mention dense. He keeps asking her out and she keeps saying no and the dodo just smiles at her as he’s being rejected. Now the Kincaid brothers are awfully good looking and let’s not forget they cook, clean, and pamper their women so of course it was only a matter of time before Jessie falls under his spell. But Jessie doesn’t believe in love or romance for that matter and when Fisher starts getting more serious than is comfortable for her she runs for the hills. Will Jessie ultimately realize that love really does exist?
Call Me Wild is one of my favorites by Robin so far. I really liked Jessie right from the start when she’s in a guys locker room and makes a comment on a guys peewee-looking junk and putting him in his place. Jessie was funny and sarcastic and yet had a vulnerable side to her. And Fisher – well come on, what can you say about a guy who seems near perfect. Even I might consider one of those. It also boils down to a great family – the Kincaids. They’re fun to spend time with and I love seeing just what they’ll all get themselves into next. This book left off setting the perfect scene for a book with Karma and I can’t wait! She’s always causing trouble for her brothers so I’m curious to see what Robin will cook up to get her back.
Call Me Wild is a great pick for your summer reading. Pick it up while you’re lounging by the pool or relaxing in your lawn-chair and you’ll find the pages flying by. Just a note for those that don’t like sexual escapades in their reading – this one has some pretty hot hanky panky! Thanks Robin for another great read!
