Title: Wilde for Her (Wilde Security #2) [Goodreads][Amazon]
Author: Tonya Burrows
Publisher: Entangled Brazen
Release Date: October 28, 2013
In My Opinion: Add to cart!
One Line: As entertaining and WILD as the first book, I love these Wilde brothers!
About the Book: Former homicide detective Camden Wilde has been in love with his ex-partner, Eva Cardoso, for longer than he cares to admit. Not that it matters. She’s shoved him into the friend zone, and after living through the hell of his parents’ violent deaths, Cam’s unable to give her the idyllic life she secretly desires.
Eva’s never met a person who hasn’t let her down. Cam may be sex personified, but he’s the only man she can trust, and there’s no way she’ll risk their friendship on the off-chance they could be more. Especially not after the one scintillating night she’s trying—and failing—to forget.
When a murder-for-hire contract on his head lands Eva on his doorstep, Cam knows it’s time to put up or shut up. He’s done biding his time, and he’ll be damned if he lets the delectable detective ignore what’s between them, no matter the cost.
Wilde for Her is the second book in the Wilde Security series. I enjoyed it just as much as the first book, Wilde Nights in Paradise. But, as much as I like these books, I always feel like there’s something missing from Tonya’s books. I do like the whole attractive brothers arc, and while each brother intrigues me, their stories don’t exactly grab my attention. The guys themselves are sexy, smart, and focused. They’re each a bit damaged, having all been in some form of armed services, and being in their heads so far as been great. I think the premise that Tonya approaches is fine, I love a good friends-to-lovers story, but there was just something missing for me. That doesn’t mean I didn’t like this book, because I really did.
Here you’ve got two friends who, after one wild night, try to figure out what is going on between them and where to go from there. Eva does her best to ignore her feelings and at times I wanted to shake her because their feelings for each other were so obvious, but when you see where she’s coming from, with a bad past and a terrible mother, I understand why she’s so hesitant. Also, the “danger” arc that is an apparent theme in each of these books was pretty good. Although the “bad guy” behind it all was pretty obvious, the stuff leading up to the reveal was pretty entertaining.
I definitely enjoyed this book, even though it’s not one of my favorite Brazens. I’ll still be reading the next one, as I’m hoping it’s about another brother, Vaughn (Cam’s twin), and the situation he got himself into in this book. Although I’d be happy with Greer or Reece’s book, too, especially after that one scene with Reece and another character you’ll meet in this book. Worth a read, for sure, if you’re a Brazen fan.
