Too Wilde to Tame
by Tonya Burrows Wilde Security #5 Publication Date: February 27, 2017 Genres: Adult, Entangled: Ignite, Contemporary, Romance
For three years, ballet teacher Natalie Taggart has lived across the hall from grumpy, reclusive, sexy Greer Wilde. Save for a handful of hellos and the occasional heated glance, they never spoke to each other. Until the morning Greer lands on her doorstep, bleeding, beaten, and bullet-riddled. Greer doesn’t need or want her help. He has only one goal: revenge. And nobody—not his brothers, and certainly not his too-hot-for-his-sanity next-door neighbor—is going to get in his way.
Natalie Taggart, for the most part, has her life together between her jobs at the radio station and her classes at the dance studio, until the morning her nephew shows up asking her to cover for him and she finds her across the hall neighbor hurt and half-conscious at her apartment door.
Greer Wilde has been missing for the past 4 months and one of his brothers has recruited his neighbor Natalie to get his mail and maybe even keep an eye out for him. When he ends up at her apartment after taking a beating, she’ll start covering his tracks until she learns why exactly he’s hiding from his family.
This was my first read by the author and I found myself enjoying a rather engaging and interesting story. I found this book very nicely written, fast paced and with an element of intrigue and suspense I very much enjoy.
I really liked Natalie’s character and how she doesn’t let Greer with his tougher than nails, brooding attitude, or even her own family, intimidate her. This is a woman with her own demons, that has gone through her share of loss and depression and who is willing to go to any lengths to help this man as well as her family. The chemistry with Greer is definitely there, but I felt the relationship was a bit rush. I understand the circumstances of this couple make for one intense, raw and passionate affair, but I didn’t get that element of growing into the relationship along the story.
In all, this was a good read, and my one regret is not having found the Wilde Security series until the very last book. I would have liked to meet the Wilde brothers much earlier.
