Hello, and welcome back! It's been a busy week at work, but the weather has been getting steadily more gorgeous outside. It's a good time to take a stack of books out and sit on the porch with a cool drink, I believe. Good thing I have so many books on my desk waiting for me. Then again, that makes it harder to choose when I finish one and need to start another. All these promising choices.
This time out, I have the latest from Jill Shalvis, Instant
Temptation (Brava, received from publisher), the final book in her Wilder trilogy. This time, bad boy T.J. Wilder meets his match in Harley Stephens, the girl who's always gotten under his skin. Now she's very much a woman, and one brief encounter has left them both wanting more. Only T.J. is definitely not a serious relationship kind of guy. Casual could be his middle name. Except when he's around Harley. Harley knows T.J. is not planning on settling down, so she's done her very best to ignore the things he stirs up in her, but now that he's working as her guide on a trek into the wilderness to study coyotes, it's a lot more challenging to keep him at arm's length. T.J. is the hottest man she's ever met, but casual isn't really in her vocabulary. For him, though, she might make an attempt at including it. As for T.J., once he's had a taste of Harley, he only wants more and more. I've enjoyed Ms. Shalvis's Wilder series, with the trio of sexy bad boy brothers and their romances. T.J. and Harley's is sexy and sweet and might just make you fall in love, too, right along with them. It's also very nice to get to revisit the characters from the previous two books in the series; it's like visiting with old friends, always enjoyable, and lots of fun. It's a shame there were only three Wilder brothers, but I'm sure Ms. Shalvis has plenty of other good things in the works for us to read. In the meantime, get your hands on T.J.'s story so you can savor one last Wilder bad boy. This one's earned four of Cupid's five arrows.
Until next time, happy reading!
