Overview

Being out of control…
 
The product of a rigid upbringing, Brenna has grown into a sexy free spirit who does things her way. No possessions, no debt, no man, and no rules to tie her down. And if she has to work, what better way than as assistant in a wilderness expedition team? So many opportunities to go wild.
 
…can be risky when you’re falling in love.
 
One person who doesn’t “get” Brenna is her boss, Grant. He prefers order and emotions kept in check, which means Brenna loves to push his boundaries. He’d be impossible to work for if he wasn’t so infuriatingly hot. But when his overbearing, matchmaking mother arrives in town, Brenna volunteers to be Grant’s pretend girlfriend. After all, it’s the perfect opportunity to drive Grant crazy at every turn.
 
Brenna’s just a little surprised when Grant agrees to her wild, impulsive schemes. And she’s more than a little surprised when their games take them to the bedroom…

I liked Grant a lot. I loved catching up with characters from previous books. But I HATED Brenna so much. She is never relatable and really rude. I would be fired if I talked to my boss or co workers the way she does. I hope the next book is better because I like this series but this one bugged me too much to even finish it.

I liked a lot about this story but I could not relate to Brenna. I liked her quirkiness at first but her crude language in front of others was a huge turnoff! As was the things she would do while wearing other people's clothes - EWWWW!!! And lastly, I was disturbed that Grant and Brenna never discussed counseling for her problem. I have loved the rest of the Bluebonnet series and loved Grant but Brenna kind of ruined it.

4.5 Stars ~Reviewed by ANGELA & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog Brenna and Grant have been at each other’s throats since this survival expedition company had started. They were like cats and dogs and can never get along but damn their attraction was of the maps. Opposites attract after all. Grant is a control freak and Brenna had no kind of direction in her life, but they couldn’t have been more perfect. They just needed the extra push to get together. In this installment, Grant’s parents visit and being that Grant is still single they attempt to set him up. Of course, Brenna tries to get him out of it by pretending to be his girlfriend. Oh and they play every part of their make-believe relationship to the fullest. I somehow expected what was to come and obviously this will be the beginning of their beautiful relationship. As they played along, bits of pieces of their personalities are revealed and steadily, they fall for each other. I thoroughly enjoyed Brenna and Grant’s story. They are quite easy to like. Both have good personalities, good humor and damn, Grant is hot! Okay, Brenna too. I have to give her credit because she was bold in her “exploration” of Grant’s body. I thought their story was romantic and very adult. Though some scenes were predictable, what I love most is that Ms. Clare adds her own flare of romance, laugh-out-loud moments and very sexy scenes to the story. She seemed to have mastered what I love most about small town novels. There is a big set up for the next book’s characters which is Grant’s sister Elise and Rome the new hired instructor. Elise who plays a wallflower is very interested in Rome who looks like a total bad boy. Now I’m hoping and predicting that The Virgin’s Guide to Misbehaving will be the hottest one of the series. I may be too eager , but Rome is tatted, very handsome , and his persona screams a whole lot of hotness. I mean, need I say more? *ARC provided by Publisher

What happens when you put together a free spirited woman and a control oriented businessman? Sparks! Jessica Clare brings readers the third book in her Bluebonnet series, featuring a group of friends who started their own wilderness survival school. The Experts Guide to Driving a Man Wild is a adventurous romp that will have readers turning up the air-conditioning. Clare has a knack for writing sizzling love scenes and she doesn't disappoint in this book. Clare takes the opposites attract rule to new heights and brings her readers along for the ride! What I liked:  Many authors have used the time worn theme of opposites attracting to bring about the necessary conflict in their books. Jessica Clare puts a new spin an old stand-by theme in The Experts Guide to Driving a Man Wild. She takes two people who are not only opposites, but antagonistic towards each other and gives them no choice but to interact. I liked the way Clare choose to make these two characters so different from each other. Both have some secrets and issues from their past that makes them who they are. Brenna's traumatic childhood and Grant's hidden guilt over the death of this wife, make them damaged but not un-repairable. I loved Grant. He was a buttoned up kind of guy. He was all business and supposedly that's how he liked it. But I knew there was a bit of wildness in their somewhere. You don't go an start a wilderness survival school without some innate passion for adventure. He just needed the right woman to bring out his passionate side. I was a bit of tormented hero because of his wife's death, but once he started to see the light where Brenna was concerned it was on. Brenna  had a zest for life that was unquenchable, even by the uptight boss. She had her reasons for not allowing any kind of rules in her own life. She learned to survive in a whole different environment than the wilderness, but one no less dangerous. I loved the way she was always baiting Grant. Playing pranks on him, just getting on his last nerve. That aspect of their relationship was hilarious and very fitting. I think we have all probably had a friend who was like Brenna. Not afraid to push convention, but more vulnerable than we ever expected. When Grant's parents and sister come to town, it doesn't take long for Brenna to realize that they want him to date again and she blurts out to Grant's horror that she is his girlfriend. I loved his reaction. He might have been flabbergasted, but he takes it in stride and lets Brenna run with it and the sparks start flying. The sex scenes are both sultry and spicy. Not appropriate for young readers, but certainly tantalizing to those of us who are old enough to know better.  If readers are looking for a very hot read, this book and the others in the Bluebonnet series are just what the doctor ordered. What I didn't like: Brenna kind of got on my nerves at times. There is something to be said for some decorum and this chick didn't have it. LOL. But that was certainly not a deal breaker in whether or not I liked the book. Bottom Line: If you are looking for a hot and spicy read, with a great riff on an old theme, The Experts Guide to Driving a Man Wild is probably right up your alley. I thought Clare did a great job of putting two characters together that were completely opposite. I liked the way Clare brought them together and brought out every thing that made them perfect for each other. A great addition to the series.

I was given this book as an ARC for an honest review. I gave this book 5 stars.  This is the first book that I have read in this series, this is book #3 but it can be read as a standalone.  This is Grant and Brenna's story.  OH where to start with this one.  Grant is a stuffy business man, he likes things organized in order, and he likes to have things planned out. He is the total opposite of Brenna. And he is not attracted to her in the least. At least he doesn't think that he is. He lost his wife to a tragic accident 5 years ago, and is still in mourning after all this time. He doesn't want to move on. He is happy with his life, and his job and his friends. But when his family comes to visit him and won't leave him alone about needing to move on and finding a girl to make his life complete.  ENTER his assistant Brenna. She is a feisty, crazy woman who has purple bangs and tattoos. She is the definition of chaos. She does everything the opposite of Grant. They are like Oil and Water. But when his parents come to visit and she sees how they are treating him she takes matters into her own hands, and decides she is going to pretend that she is dating Grant.  This blows up in both of their faces, why because they had no idea the chemistry that they have together. And although they are total opposites and before this they thought that they disliked each other immensely, it turns out that they were wrong. And sparks fly.  But when things start to come together and Brenna is scared to commit, what will Grant do? When he can't control Breena the way he controls everything else what will happen? Brenna is carrying a secret from her past that makes her the way she is, nobody knows this secret and when it is revealed how is Grant going to handle this new development? Follow Grant and Brenna's rough journey as they learn about love, and commitment and learning to finally trust someone again.  Well.. This book was a page turner. I loved it from the beginning, I was captivated by this relationship and all of the hilarious things that Brenna would do to Grant. I think everyone knew before she did that she was doing this for his attention. At first I loved Brenna, but as it got to the middle of the book, I wanted to kill her. She got on my freaking nerves! I wanted to throw my damn kindle across the freaking room. BUT towards the end when you really know why she is the way she is. I felt for this poor girl and knew the reasons she did the things that she did in her life. And then I was like aahhhh.. I get it. This book is a complete package, it has hot crazy sex, romance, and comedy. The side characters are great too, and I am sure the first two books in the series were about them. I just haven't gotten to them yet! But I will surely be reading them too.  Thank you so much for this great series and giving me the chance to review it. I look forward to reading the rest of your books! You have a fan for life<3

Fun story! Grant and Brenna's love story. Grant is really smokin hot in this book, steamy sex scenes abound. The two of them are polar opposites yet, somehow, it works. Interesting pasts are cause of angst for both main characters and the set up for next book is also intriguing. I enjoyed the story and recommend it. S.A.K.
