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.
This story is one wild run, pun intended. There's so much happening here, I don't even know where to start..
The brothers seem to have an odd dysfunctional relationship between them. Reece is operating on guilt, feeling like it is his responsibility to save all his brothers and take care of them. Even though it is understood, those brothers are well capable to take care of themselves.
Eva and Shelby don't have much healthier relationship between them. Eva is rude, condescending, arrogant, judgmental... Just a very unlikable character all together. Her short lived redemption towards the end wasn't enough to save her.
I liked Shelby. Despite the cards she was dealt with in life, she is a survivor, smart, strong, and genuinely seems to care for others around her. Unlike many other characters in the story. People constantly judge and undermine Shelby, and that started to annoy me early on.
The connection between Reece and Shelby is hot, sexual attraction between them is hot and somewhat out of control. They constantly make poor decisions because of the lust they have for each other. The feelings they have for each other grow deeper with time. The whirlwind of their life putting them in danger constantly, the worry for each other turns in caring and love.
The secrets, crimes, fires, they all pile up in the story. There are so many suspects, all seems to have a great motive, and even the opportunity, no one is to be trusted.
I felt like there was too much going on, and nothing is under control. It was scattered, and so many subplots going on at the same time, the story nearly drowns into them. Especially the things happening with the brothers, didn't seem like they had anything to do with the plot, more like setting the stage for the series, a bit odd in a book three.
The story is like a tornado going through the Wilde brothers' lives, leaving nothing as it was before. I guess the future installments of the series will tell if this development was a positive step, or the beginning of a road to destruction
