Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
When Toni Russo, an emotionally scarred and frankly whiny New York goth, heads into the rugged Idaho wilderness for a work project, an unexpected and unlikely romance springs up between her and sexy river guide Hunter Kincaid in this clumsy opposites-attract series starter. Managing the Action Models agency keeps hapless Toni’s hands full as she also battles her lust for Hunter, her fear of the wilderness, and the personal demons that keep her from seeing Hunter as more than a fling. Hunter appears to like Toni despite her attempts to push him away and a multitude of tiresome miscommunications and assumptions. Kaye (Yours for the Taking) takes a fun concept and grinds it into an overblown tale featuring an underwhelming heroine. Secondary characters, such as Hunter’s sister, Karma, provide more interest and hope that future series titles will be better. (Dec.)
Booklist
Kaye's second Idaho story, after Yours for the Taking (2010), entertainingly explores the perils of the great outdoors and the rocky road to love.

    Wildly entertaining, Robin Kaye dishes up a captivating cotemporary romance with a main man that is sure to make you swoon!

    3.5 Stars

    Toni Russo, manager of Action Models, is on a set right out of her nightmares. Lost and left roaming the wilderness for three days when she was only six years old, Toni has been deathly afraid of anything ¿outdoorsy¿ ever since. When her boss has to stay in New York though for important business negations, Toni sees managing the outing as a chance to prove herself and step up in her career. If only she could make it out of her cabin without having a panic attack to get to the actual photo shoot.
    When guide, Hunter Kinclaid, arrives at the inn to pick up his group of models he is unexpectedly surprised to see a beautiful goth girl heading up the project. Seeing her anxiety though by just being outdoors in view of the surrounding forest he immediately steps up to put her at ease by distracting her. Spying a book on Toni¿s nightstand about how to get a man to marry you, Hunter obtains his own copy and a little, albeit unwanted, help from his family. Using the book as a guide to get closer to Toni, Hunter and Toni set forth on a journey with a group of sexy and outrageous models into the wilderness where he helps Toni conquer her fears and teachers her to believe in love.

    Wild Thing is a wonderful story of opposites attract and beating your fears.
    The word-building is set up beautifully and easily places the reader in the lush surroundings of the Idaho forests, meadows and rampant rapids. The hero of this romance, Hunter Kincaid, is beyond perfect and sometimes unbelievably so. He¿s sexy, successful, helps children and families in need, is an amazing cook, a regular Davey Crockett and the list just keeps going. I did enjoy how he handled Toni¿s phobia with distraction techniques; she would be in a situation that would bring on her anxiety and Hunter would get her talking and rambling on and before Toni knew it she was beyond that point. Toni, for me, was a so-so heroine. She was very much out of her element for a good portion of the novel which I attribute to her timidness in the beginning. The connection between Hunter and Toni certainly sizzled from the start and they balanced each other out well, playing to each other¿s strength and weaknesses. The novel that the book is loosely themed on doesn¿t play too much into the plot except for at the very beginning and end, and I enjoyed that it didn¿t take up too much page time and instead the author focused on the couple. Some conflict, tension, distrust and lots of sexy time, the story moved along at a good clip and kept me turning the pages.

    Being the fifth novel in a series, Wild Thing was exceptionally set up as a stand-alone and I was intrigued by the side characters and hope to read more about them in future installments. The banter between each character was funny and entertaining and really made Wild Thing an enjoyable read. The ending was a bit abrupt, though I assume it was because a certain story is going to continue into the next book which should prove delightful and I¿m looking forward to it.

    A good book for contemporary romance fans looking for a fun and light read.

    Not believable

    I enjoyed the first 4 books in the Domestic Gods series and was looking forward to the Kincaid siblings stories but Wild Thing was a big letdown. I understand attraction and lust at first sight but oh I care so much about you after a few hours, please! I felt I missed a chapter that provided more back story. I know what I'm getting into when I buy these books, it's not for literary motives but an escape, but Geez! I like them to seem somewhat plausible and realistic. Toni was annoying and I never felt anything for her other than frustration. And the ending with Trapper and Bianca, bleh! Here's hoping Kaye gets back on track for Fisher and Karma's books.

    Must Read!

    Hunter is a rough and tough guy who has a little thing for a spunky, goth chica! He can't help but go all crazy for Toni even if he doesn't quite do it the way she expects. I love that he takes the time to read the dating book she is, just to be the man that she would want. I had lots of laughs and of course the hot steamy parts are fabulous!

    A fun and sexy read.

    Wild Thing By Robin Kaye is a delightful story with snappy dialogue and sizzling passion.

    Hunter Kincaid enjoys his job as a wilderness guide, it’s the perfect blend of outdoors and a job he loves. His latest adventure is with a group of hot fashion models. But it’s the feisty manager of Action Models that has his motor running. Toni Russo with her punk fashions and her fears is a magnet that Hunter has a hard time ignoring.

    Toni Russo really needs to prove herself with this assignment of overseeing the photo shoot. Her fears of the great outdoors and being abandoned are playing havoc with her well being. Add to that mix is the smoking hot guide Hunter Kincaid. Hunter is the polar opposite of Toni, he loves the outdoors and is willing to take chances.

    Hunter and Toni set off sparks whenever they are together. Rather its verbal repartee or burning up the sheet, these two snap and sizzle. But Toni’s trust issues will be put to the test when she catches Hunter in a lie. Will these two opposites be able to patch things up and make their relationship work.

    Wild Thing is fun, sexy, witty and all around a great read. The characters draw you in and have you laughing and sighing in absolute delight. Looking forward to Hunters siblings getting their own story soon.

    A Little Slow

    First book I read by this author and I could easily put it down. (Matter of fact I read two other books while I was reading this one).. It didn't seem real to me and I loved the idea of the great Idaho outdoors as a backdrop. Characters not so good. Plot slow. Believable? Not so much. Sorry.

    City Girl meets Mountain Man...

    Wild Thing by Robin Kaye Toni Russo is invisible. Even in her Goth clothes she disappears when she is around the super models that surround her, and she is good with that. Bianca, her boss at Action Models has sent her to overlook the photo shoot in Stanley, Idaho and that is not a good thing. Toni is happy in New York with all the noise and crowds, she is not happy in the wilderness at Sawtooth Inn. For some reason the handsome Hunter Kincaid, owner of River Runner's guide service won't let her hide in her room with her fears. The man is relentless and too good looking. Soon enough he should be noticing the gorgeous models rather than her. Hunter had a thing for Toni the minute he heard her sexy voice over the phone in January. And here she was in person, and more enticing than ever. He was afraid it would be Bianca waiting for him. The owner of Action Models was paying him really well but the week she was out to check out the places for photo shoots she kept coming unto him and he had learned it was best to keep clients out of his personal life. He even made sure his two brothers were here this week to help distract Bianca away from him. Toni was different though and when Hunter saw a book her mom sent her to read, he had his sister Karma get him one. It was on how to find the man you want to marry and he thought it would be funny to read it, only somehow he found himself trying to follow what the book said to win Toni over. Somewhere along the line the attraction become more than physical. Toni and Hunter struggle through out the book. If it's not Bianca making it look as she has a deeper relationship with Hunter or his helpful relatives giving advice than its Toni's fear of the wilderness. And how can a city gal and mountain man find happiness? This book is the fifth book in a related series. The previous book, Yours for the Taking, is Hunter's cousin Ben. **Language and sexual situations **Book received through NetGalley for review
