She doesn’t know a single thing about relationships…
Unemployed sportswriter Jessie James plans to make a killing writing a bestselling romance novel. She’s never read one, but really, how hard can it be? Moving cross-country to a borrowed house in Idaho, Jessie starts her research with the first gorgeous guy she runs into…
Luckily, he knows everything…
Sports doctor Fisher Kincaid notices Jessie right away–the transplanted Easterner sticks out like a sore thumb in the small town. When he discovers she’s researching attraction and romance, he graciously offers himself as a test subject. That’s when everything starts to go wrong, and they both find out how much they need a few good lessons in love
Robin Kaye’s Call Me Wild is a sweet, sexy and all around fun read. Recently laid off from her job as a sportswriter, Jessie is planning to write that novel she has always been planning on writing. With romance novels in hand (for research purposes, of course), Jessie is ready to devote six weeks to writing a romance novel. The only problem? She has never been in a relationship and she does not believe in love. Hmm, maybe a little hands on research is what this aspiring author needs.
Fisher Kincaid happily volunteers to be Jessie’s research assistant. He is an easygoing, handsome and successful doctor. Who cooks AND cleans. Despite his best efforts, Fisher has been unable to talk Jessie into going on a date with him. Until a little matchmaking by Fisher’s sister Karma presents him with the perfect opportunity to jumpstart their non-existent relationship. All in the name of research, of course.
Jessie James is not a girly girl type of woman. She is low maintenance, more comfortable in sweats and running shoes than a dress and heels. Her domestic skills include microwaving TV dinners. Tall, athletic and in better shape than most men, Jessie does not need a man to rescue her or, well, for anything.
Complete opposites in many way, Fisher and Jessie are a marvelous couple. They perfectly complement one another’s strengths and weaknesses. The sexual chemistry between them is sizzling hot and their love scenes are passionate and quite steamy.
Robin Kaye’s engaging writing style and unique storyline keep Call Me Wild moving at a fast pace. It is a captivating read with appealing protagonists and entertaining, witty dialogue. The supporting cast of characters is delightful and equally well drawn.
Although it is part of a series, Call Me Wild can be read as a standalone novel. But if you are like me and have not read the previous books, you will quickly add them to your to be read pile.
