New Release Review! WILDE AT HEART by Tonya Burrows (Wilde Security #3)

Wilde At Heart Banner

Title: Wilde at Heart
Author: Tonya Burrows
Publisher: Entangled Ignite
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Format: Kindle

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.



Gah! This is book three in the series, and though it worked just fine as a “I haven’t read anything from this series yet” book, now it really, really makes me want to read more in the series. Now. But I don’t have time–darn grad school!

It seemed like such a good idea nine months ago. But I digress.

There was an awful lot going on throughout the book–many subplots, two families worth of drama, arson, burglaries, employee theft–it honestly all got to be a bit much at times, and I’m still not entirely sure who was doing what all the time. The “suspense” part may have been a bit overdone here. Fortunately, the hero and heroine pulled the story through for me and made it all worth it in the end.

Loved: Shelby’s nicknames for Reese. Hershey. Skittles. Rolo. Too funny.

Shelby and Reese together, even though they thought they were too different to work. Each needed what the other supplied.

Poe the parrot and Sam the cat. Stole every scene they were in.

The mystery surrounding Vaughn and Greer. They’ll get their books soon, yes?

Not so crazy about: how Eva treats Shelby for about 95% of the book. She pulls it back in the end, but yeah, she was pretty shoddy for the majority of it. Sisters–it’s supposed to mean something. Not that I have sisters, but I am one, so…yeah. Pull your head out of your butt and be sisterly.

Shelby’s secret: she definitely should have told someone about it earlier. Even just the reader–though Reese would have been a good choice too. That drama got frustrating fast.

Overall, though, I enjoyed the book; it was a fast and entertaining read that definitely left me wanting more from the series. I just checked and books one and two ( Wilde Nights in Paradise andWilde for Her are on audio, so I can get to them sooner rather than later. Hello, commute to and from work! 🙂

Rating: 4 stars / A-

I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.
