Overview

The first in a sensational new series, Jill Shalvis introduces Cameron, Stone, and T.J. Wilder—three bad-boy heroes who effortlessly mix breathtaking adventure and scorching sex appeal. . .

Get Wild. . .And Then Get Wilder. . .

Accountant Katie Kramer is a quintessential good girl—working hard, recycling diligently, all the while trying to ignore the feeling that she doesn't fit in anywhere. That's all she wants. Well, that—and amazing sex, and the kind of daredevil escapade she can look back on when she's crunching numbers in a dusty cubicle. Which explains why she just took a job in Wishful, California, working for Wilder Adventures and Expeditions. Waking up to find a magnificently built stranger towering over her bed—that part defies explanation. . .

"Shalvis writes with humor, heart, and sizzling heat!" —Carly Phillips

"Jill Shalvis sweeps you away." —Cherry Adair

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

The first in a new series by veteran romance author Shalvis hits the ground running. After Katie Kramer survives a devastating accident, she resolves to "live life balls out" and leaves L.A. for a job with Wilder Adventures in the Sierra Madre mountains. Hunky Cameron Wilder, a champion snowboarder whose career ended with his own devastating accident, appears, and the attraction is instant for both of them. But neither wants a relationship so it's up to the Wilder clan to make them realize that they were meant to be together. What elevates this beyond the standard of the genre is the Wilders, particularly the subplot around Cameron's surrogate mother, Annie, and her husband, Nick. Their relationship problems and love for each other are more authentic than what's found in most romance novels. The Wilder men make great romance heroes while Katie is a great heroine: fearless but vulnerable, bright, charismatic and a great match for Cameron, who is classically reserved and brooding. By focusing on the Wilder family as much as she focuses on the couple, Shalvis thoroughly engages readers as she finds the perfect women for the other Wilder men. (Feb.)

NOW I CAN SAVE SOME MONEY NOT BUYING THESE BOOKS TWICE. Yes you say shame on barnes and noble. WHen a book is published for the first time in hardbook when it had already been published in paperback it would be a new publish as a new release so you have wasted your money. I have done the same. Not right.

Nice love story with awesome setting images.  Make you want to live in the mountains.  Read first two in the series quickly ready to start on book three.  Like the original covers better than the new additions.

Jill Shalvis is a very witty conversation writer. I really enjoy reading her books because of the way she writes the dialogue, very realistic.

Jill Shalvis never disappoints! I fell in love with Cam and Katie. They were a great couple! I love how they were able to help each other. This is a definite re-read for me.

Not my favorite from her books... The female character was cute and easy to relate to but the others not so much.

Review by C.K. Laurence: The story follows Cam and Katie's battle against the growing attraction between them. The two face obstacles from every direction as they fight to take back their lives and find passion and love along the way. Of course there is the formula ex-girlfriend to complicate matters and one family crisis after another to keep the plot moving. Did I mention that there is lots of hot sex between the couple? Instant Attraction had me turning the pages to see if and how the couple would succeed, and I must admit I could not put it down. The only thing that niggled at total enjoyment was Shavis' obsession with green eyes and Cam's amazing body. I found myself wanting to say "Okay, I get it. I get it!" It wasn't so bad that it stopped me from plowing through the novel in only two days, though. For anyone looking for a romantic read with plenty of action, warmth and some big smiles, I can tell you this-Shavis next novel is a sequel involving Cam's brother Stone, and I have every intention of reading it.

Don't pass up this book, I recently discovered Jill Shalvis (Geez where have I been) This is the 4th book of her's I've read and I've not been disapointed. As long as Ms. Shalvis keeps writing books like this I'll keep buying them
