I Liked It!
Ready for Wild is an angsty, sweet, funny, and hot romance that had me hooked! Braden and Amber are characters that had something from the moment they met, even if they drove each other crazy!
Braden is the “Jolly Green Giant” of Colorado. He enjoys his job as a park ranger, and the solitude he has. The outdoors is what he loves and coming home to his dog Charley. He doesn’t have any drama, and he wants to keep it that way. When Amber and her film crew show up and disrupt his solitude he wants to hate her, but there’s an attraction there that he can’t deny. Amber has one last shot to save her show, and this hunt in Colorado is it, she just wishes that Braden wasn’t so judgey with her and she could reel her attraction in a bit.
Watching these two try to fight their attraction, and realize that maybe they are not as different as they think they are is an interesting read. They know the odds are against them, and the risks could be high, but watching Amber try to get Braden to take a chance is hilarious. She goes out of her way to break his hard shell and she’s definitely the aggressor with him. Since this book was told in dual point of view I loved watching Braden break down and watch him soften towards her and see him start to look forward to hearing from her and the lust build up between them.
The relationship between Braden and Amber isn’t easy and they have a lot to overcome, but it is definitely worth it. They are both stubborn and hardheaded and push each other to their limits over and over again. Neither one of them really knew what they were getting into when they started to fall for each other, and that’s the best type of relationship. This story definitely pulled at my heartstrings and made me want to pull my hair out at times, but it was perfect for these two characters. If you’re looking for a rugged mountain man, and a go getter girl who can bring him to his knees, then I highly suggest picking up Ready for Wild by Liora Blake today, trust me, you won’t regret it.
