I liked Tripp, even with his reputation as a player, he never really stood out and acted as one. Yes, he had hurt Hannah's feelings when they were in college, but unintentionally. Tripp was considerate, he was kind, outgoing, full of positive energy and joy, he made me smile and was just a delightful addition to the Wilde family. He grew up by leaps and bounds throughout the story, he finally had a good reason to mature and settle down a bit, and he was really dedicated to making it work with Hannah. He was actively seeking out ways to compromise and fix their lives so it would be possible for them to be together.
Hannah had some issues. She had trust issues from her childhood, with her mother, with the constantly changing step-fathers, and she was compressing in her mind some serious childhood drama, that took the plot into a new direction at the unexpected moment. All this affected to her relationship with Tripp. I found it hard to understand her (sanctimonious) upset over the women who came on to Tripp - who did absolutely nothing to encourage them - when she was the one who kissed another man. There's really no cheating issues on the story, but the drama with Tripp's fame and the women who want a part of it kept coming up. I found myself frequently frustrated with Hannah's attitude. WhenTripp is confessing his love to her and she still things about their relationship as 'only hormones' from his end, she nearly lost me completely from her camp but was able to turn the tables towards the end.
Yes, the romance part of the story challenged me, as characters seemed so far from a solution to make it work out to the HEA. But the author found a way to bring it all together so that in the end, it was satisfying and pleasing.
The suspense with the murder mystery was a nice addition to the story. I did guess the culprit from the start, but the reasons and motives behind the attacks kept me interested, the cause much more complex than I ever expected.
I enjoyed the dynamics in the Wilde family, the bond between them is tight, and the banter always entertaining. Overall the Wilde Thing was an entertaining and fun story, with a lot of flirting, devotion, passion and flame, mixed with danger, menace, and threat.
~ Three Spoons with a teaspoon on the side
Wilde Thing, for instance, is a romantic suspense set in the world of extreme winter sports. Tripp Wilde is a top skier who lives on the edge. When he's injured during a competition Hannah Ryder offers to take charge of his physical therapy. Against her better judgement, Hannah is willing to ignore the stirrings of her old attraction to help Tripp get back on top. In the course of their time together they manage to work into an easy routine. An afternoon out on the slopes where they believe they witnessed a murder is the first crack in their new bond.
There's a killer on the loose and Hannah and Tripp may know who it is. Little accidents turn into pointed attempts at their lives. They often discussed whether someone was after them, or whether they imagined it, which made the story feel stilted. When characters take action over doubt the plot feels more directed. Gallant ramps up the suspense and doesn't forget about the romance. The danger surrounding them forces Tripp and Hannah to rely and trust in each other. Which means they must reevaluate their perspectives. The romance of the novel was definitely on parr with usual romance reads.
Wilde Thing is the third book in the Born to be Wilde series and I fell into it with no trouble. No need to fear if you haven't read the previous two books. This story is all about Tripp Wilde's journey to love and features familiar characters from the series.
*eARC provided in exchange for an honest review*
Tripp and Hannah were slow making connections to the danger in this romantic suspense. However, there is a major twist in the motivation of the villain that I did not see coming. It fit together well but still I enjoyed the romance aspect of the story more than the suspense. I also grew very fond of outgoing Tripp and shy Hannah. The characters were developed realistically and honestly. I need to actually like the characters to enjoy a book and this were remarkable.
This series does not need to be read in order per say, but I have enjoyed getting to read each of the brother’s story so I can recommend all three, especially Wilde Thing. Now I look forward to the sister’s story, too.
An ARC of the book was given to me by the publisher through Net Galley.
