I dont remember Hunter and his brothers, Trapper and Fisher, from the previous book, Yours for the Taking. but Hunter,and his brothers are all here and the two brothers books do follow in this series. I honestly am not sure if I'll bother to download them , the brothers were funny and the apperance of their sister added some fun to the book and the book does have some funny moments but just not enough of them , I think thats the problam not enough funny bits, not enough romance as its very rushed Hunter falls for Toni on site and seems to be confident and alpha everywhere in his life but with Toni, who I just couldnt take too, I didnt get her at all and she didnt seem like Hunters type either she had her moments of good one liners and softer bits but I didnt get her she is a goth-wearing, city-dwelling girl with a phobia with the woods, due to getting lost in the woods as a child who comes with a team of models to do a photo shoot with hunter as their guide (along with his brothers) it just didnt tick my boxes it wasnt alwful but it wasnt anything great either very middle of the road for me!

We first met Hunter and his brothers, Trapper and Fisher, briefly in Ms. Kaye's previous book, Yours for the Taking. I am happy to report that we get more of not only Hunter, but his brothers as well - I love these brothers!! I found Toni a bit rough around the edges, and not as easy to like as Hunter, but by the end of the story I was rooting for their HEA.
Toni is a goth-wearing, city-dwelling woman with an aversion to anything that even remotely resembles the great outdoors. We learn later in the story why she has this phobia, and watch as Hunter struggles to make the trip not only bearable but enjoyable for her. Toni is used to being surrounded by gorgeous models and not being noticed, so Hunter really throws her for a loop.
Hunter is not used to having the feelings Toni brings out in him - protective, posessive, and head-over-heels for Toni. He wants a real relationship with Toni, but she doesn't have enough self-confidence to believe it and thwarts his attempts at commitment at every turn by telling herself it's only temporary until she gets back to the city. (This was actually one of the issues I had with the book was that he fell so quickly - I would have liked their relationship to take a little more time)
There's quite a bit of humor throughout the book, so many times I chuckled out loud:
Toni watched Hunter run across the street and put her boots in the truck. She'd probably drop the things in the incinerator when she got home, but then, if she kept seeing Hunter, he'd expect her to wear them again. God, her closet was too small for ugly shoes.page 233, Wild Thing
There was also a side story of a charitable organization Hunter is trying to expand, and a quite funny storyline about a relationship-help book Toni brings on the trip...
Wild Thing is a cute, funny, contemporary romance by an author who's writing style I really enjoy. Fans of contemporary romance and the opposites-attract storyline will have a great time reading this book.
I really love Robin's writing. I think that I have read all of her books so far, and this one did not disappoint. These are books are simply fun to read...pure entertainment with some wonderful, feel-good romance in them.
This is the start of a new series, although there are a few characters that you will recognize if you have read Robin Kaye's previous books. This series features the Kincaid siblings. Even how they all received their names is a really funny:
"Hunter, Trapper, and Fisher. You three aren't brothers are you?"
Hunter smiled. "What tipped you off?"
"The family resemblance. Your parents have a hell of a sense of humor."
"Yeah, well. My dad was trapping when Trapper was born, hunting and fishing when Fisher and I were born. When he wasn't there for our baby sister's birth, Mom finally divorced him."
"What's your sister's name?"
I was already giggling about the names in this book before I heard the explanation behind them. Too funny and that kind of humor is throughout the entire book, which makes it so much fun to read.
Toni is a goth chick from NYC, who got wrestled into handling this photo shoot by her boss at the last minute. After a scarring event in her life at age 6, Toni is absolutely terrified of anything to do with the outdoors. Not exactly the person that you expect to hook up with a professional outdoorsman like Hunter. Their pairing was unlikely, but that's what made it fun to read.
There is so much that is fun about this book:
*I adored the relationship between the four siblings. The constant bets between Trapper & Fisher were too funny. I loved Karma as the little sister and the way that she was always giving her brothers such a hard time. I laughed out loud a lot about Hunter when he thinks about Karma having sex.
*Robin ALWAYS writes her heroes as domestic gods and their heroines...not so much! LOVE THAT!! A guy that can clean and cook...and wants to do it. There is nothing sexier!!
*James--I really liked the perspective he added to the story with his take on Hunter and Toni. Great addition!
*I liked the overall story...a week-long photo shoot in the outdoors. It created a great backdrop for the story. Great ambiance!
My only complaint was that I felt like Toni's issues/angst got to be a bit much about 3/4 of the way through the book, but that's where the conflict for the story came from, so I am not even sure if you could change that. It was the impetus for the forward momentum at the end of the book.
Overall, this was simply a fun book that I really enjoyed reading. I am really looking forward to reading about the rest of the siblings. Hopefully, their books are soon to follow!
In "Yours for the Taking", the characters traveled to Idaho and we were introduced to the Kincaid family. This book takes place mainly in Idaho (that was a nice change from the previous books) and centers around Hunter Kincaid. Hunter and his brother are hot, intelligent and successful business and outdoors men. Of the 3 brothers, Hunter was the most enjoyable. I'm sure Kaye will write books about each brother and their sister, none of which were as likable as Hunter.
Toni, a Goth chick, is a New Yorker who is out of her element in the wilderness. Her character kind of irritated me. Overall, I could not understand how Hunter could be attracted to her.
There was a really nice moment when Toni got back to NYC and went back to her Goth garb. While on the subway, she realizes that she "felt like a clown." It was kind of an "ah-ha" moment when she realizes she's been hiding behind that persona and it just wasn't working anymore.
The entire part in Las Vegas was so over the top, I hated that the book ended this way.
If you haven't read Kaye's first 3 novels, read them first. This is just ok compared to those.
Really? This is award worthy?
Fisher is an Orthopedic surgeon, who is a health nut, Loves to cook, considers cleaning therapeutic, a little OCD and knits. Enough said!
Our girl Jessie is a sports writer, who has just been laid off; She moves to Boise, Idaho and decides to try her hand at writing a romance novel for some fast cash, how hard can it be right? She is a writer after all. Oh and did I mention she doesn't believe in romance or Love? Yep!
Jessie's first impressions of Fisher is that he is a `stalker'; Jessie makes some pretty big assumptions about Fisher, which unravel hilariously as the story moves along.
Fisher and Jessie decide to date in the name of research....ofcos. Fisher's courtship of Jessie is a laugh a minute, throw in smoking hot, passion filled love scenes and what we have is a winner on our hands.
This is my First Robin Kaye book, and I'm hooked big time. The characters were well developed, quirky and fun, the writing was pure genius. I can't wait to read Karma and Trapper stories next.
If you are looking for a great contemporary Romantic Comedy to unwind with - `Call me Wild' is IT!
