Complimentary copy received from author in exchange for an honest review

This was a light-hearted, cute romance.

I think I have read too many MC or Romantic Suspense books lately, so it was really refreshing to pick something up that is purely about the relationship, and not about bad guys with guns!

The entire cast of Characters was great. I loved Maggie! I want a Gran like that!

Ryan, again, loved. In fact I loved all the O'Hare brothers! There is something about a man who loves his Gran that is swoon worthy! And their reactions to their Gran and her new lease of life "Gran is flirting. I've never seen that. It's like seeing a cow suddenly milk itself"

It was a really enjoyable book, but I struggled with certain things.

Liz! I really struggled to warm up to her at first! I know she is meant to be buttoned up and uptight, but she took over control too far sometimes IMO

The way she went on about her sisters baby, how she would be bringing it up, etc, " Me and the baby are a package " Well, no, the kid has parents, and she needed to stop enabling her sisters dependant behaviour!

But, she started to grow on me, especially when we learn of The Humiliation, what led to her total control, and you realise, she is grabbing at excuses to not let Ryan close to her, because her self image of herself was formed in the moment of The Humiliation! And even her super organisational skills started to become almost endearing. Alphabetised Spices!

Also, at the beginning, maybe the first 30% or so, I wanted more of Ryan, it felt like Liz and Maggie were the two main characters of the book, and I loved Maggie, but needed more of Ryan!

There was there odd thing here to there that was a bit predictable!

This was a nice read with believable characters and a strong storyline. It had its sex scene but thankfully it was more about the story than bedroom athletics. In fact it was refreshing to have a book concerning itself with the people and their lives together with the way the romance came together. I liked the way the hero's dating ethic was turned on it's head so he saw his previous behaviour through his own eyes - surprise, surprise, he didn't like it much!

I wasn't certain about the job with the police, things must work differently in America and if that's how it's done then that's great for our hero but it did seem a trifle convenient.

Not certain I will buy more - but I might. The thing is I really didn't like the sister (who I believe the next book is about). She was selfish beyond belief and in spite of having a baby still seemed often to behave like a child herself. I can't make my mind up whether I want to read a whole book about her. Of course, she may have been written that way so we can see her become likeable.

If you want a book more about the people and with an actual story rather than bedroom antics I would certainly give this the thumbs up. If you prefer your books all about sexual athletics, then stick to what has become known as mommy porn disguised as 'hot, hot, hot' in reviews; there seems to be plenty out there if that's your thing.

The Opposite of Wild was my first book by Kylie Gilmore but definitely won’t be my last! This book definitely makes my favourites list.

I was gripped from start to finish with Liz and Ryan’s story, although at times I wanted to bang their heads together. It was refreshing to read about two characters who felt believable and realistic and set in a realistic setting. I liked how using Maggie added another dimension to portray the two and Maggie definitely added surprising comedy moments to the book!

I felt the story was well paced, with a refreshingly unique storyline on what could be a typical plot and the dual points of views helped strengthen this story further. Although the characters have history, I liked how the author didn’t have them ’falling in love’ instantly, making the story more believable to the reader. Instead, the author showed well the frustrating and warring emotions both characters had towards each other as the story develops.

I would definitely recommend you give this book a read.

It’s funny how one event in two teenagers lives can be taken so differently and set the path for the course of their lives. One afternoon, one careless remark, one first rate crush to set the path for the next couple of decades.

To say that Liz Garner was an “orderly” type person was to put it mildly. She had labels for everything, a place for everything and well when things didn’t happen just so she tried to roll with them until she got everything placed her way. Then her big sister blew back into town and with a big surprise. She was pregnant now Liz’s life was about to be turned upside down.

Ryan O’Hare had always taken care of people. He had been protecting everyone he cared about for longer than he could remember, even becoming a cop to do so. Then something happened and he retreated, taking care of those that he loved but unable to see past certain things. He did know he wasn’t going to be hurt anymore.

When Ryan hires Liz to watch over his grandmother he refuses to think of that time so long ago when they knew each other. On the other hand Liz can’t stop thinking about it. Now with the help of Ryan’s grandmother Liz is starting to loosen up and Ryan is starting to get the urge to settle down. Will these two ever be able to meet in the middle or is that asking for one miracle to many?

Ms. Gilmore has taken her readers down and interesting path with these two engaging in a lot of role reversal. It’s intriguing and complex while still being light hearted and truly romantic. To see a male so twisted and turned is unusual but honestly made the book all the more enjoyable. This is definitely a book I would recommend for some light and engaging romantic reading, nothing too in depth or too scorching but just right to kindle the heart.
