Overview


Nights in Paradise (A Wilde Security Novel) by Tonya Burrows: He’ll guard her body all night long. Former Marine Jude Wilde’s motto has always been “burn bridges and never look back,” so nobody is more surprised when Wilde Security is hired to protect assistant district attorney Libby Pruitt, the woman he loved and left. Although she makes it clear she wants nothing to do with Jude, they’re forced to fake a relationship for her safety. He can’t ignore the heat still simmering between them, and when her stalker’s threats escalate to attempted murder, he’s left with no choice but to whisk her away to a friend’s safe house in Key West, FL. Cooped up in paradise together, Jude begins to chip away at Libby’s resolve to hate him. But even as she gives in to his proximity and her body’s demands for his, she refuses to fall for his charms again. Maybe a torrid affair in the sun is exactly what she needs to get him out of her system. But when her stalker tracks them down, can they escape the steamy Key West night without anyone getting hurt?

    Jude's been tasked with the job of protecting his ex-fiancee. Th

    Jude's been tasked with the job of protecting his ex-fiancee. The woman who's heart he broke 8 years ago. But if he's being honest with himself, he's thought about her every moment since. Since his parents passed away when he was a kid, he's felt guilt over their death and has been unconsciously sabotaging every good thing that's ever happened to him. Especially his relationship with Libby.

    "But part of him in the deepest, darkest pit in his soul wondered how long he could keep smiling."

    Now he has to put the past behind him and do his job, but that's kind of hard to do when Libby wants one night together to get him out of her system. Once he's had a taste, one night will never be enough.

    I liked the idea behind this story. The fact that you have a independent career driven woman who isn't afraid of some stalker. She's not about to let some guy scare her away from doing her job as an attorney. So in steps her ex-fiance, the one who cheated on her and broke her heart. Not only is he her new bodyguard but when the threats escalate and her life is put in danger, she's whisked away to a private estate to live with Jude until the person behind the threats is caught.

    Of course there is a lot of sexual tension throughout the entire story. Even after they knock boots, Libby decides to keep her distance from Jude. However, no matter what, they find themselves rediscovering each other regardless of how hard they try to stay away.

    There wasn't a lot of suspense since a lot of the time the story revolves around the two of them hiding out. I would have liked to have had more suspense since Libby was supposed to be in danger but once they hide out at Jude's friends house, the danger is all but forgotten. I still thought this was a good read and liked the whole second chance theme to it.

    Wilde Nights in Paradise    Tonya Burrows treats readers to anot

    Wilde Nights in Paradise 
     
    Tonya Burrows treats readers to another hot and spicy one with Wilde Nights in Paradise, the first book in her new “Wilde Security” series.  Unlike SEAL of Honor, her first book in her “Hornet” series, this one is more about the relationship than it is the intrigue side of things.  There is a mystery about who is stalking Libby but most of the book focuses on them getting to know each other again and whether they can come to terms with what happened eight years ago.  It is just as engrossing, with addictive characters and a fluid writing style.

    Jude Wilde is a carefree loose cannon whose motto is ¿never look

    Jude Wilde is a carefree loose cannon whose motto is ‘never look back.’ But when Wilde Security is contacted to protect Elizabeth Pruitt, his ex-fiancé, Jude’s past will come slamming down on him. Libby wants absolutely nothing to do with Jude, but when an attempt is made on her life, they’re forced to retreat to a safe house. The hot days in Key West turn even hotter as Jude and Libby get to know each other again. But better not lose sight of the mission because danger might come knocking on their door…

    With her debut novel barely a month old, Tonya Burrows comes back with this exciting new series! Wilde Nights is a fast paced romance tumble full of humor and heartfelt moments than you will not want to end!

    First, can I just mention that Burrows ability to create mouth-watering men is a freaking gift. I’m already fangirling about the men in her HORNET series, so meeting the Wilde boys was like shooting me up with an extra dose of fangirl insanity. Wilde Security is made up five brothers, the oldest brother Greer, the nicely dressed and ever serious Reece, the ying-yang twins (I’m calling them that because one is peaceful while the other isn’t) Camden and Vaughn, and the hilarious Jude. All the boys have unique personalities and I can’t wait to get to know them, their secrets, their desires, their secret desires…!
    Ok. Moving on.

    Jude is a total charmer. He grabbed my attention from page one for being the sexy trouble maker, but soon enough we learn this is just a facade to the true Jude. He plays the part of screw up really well. It’s what he’s been called and he’s given up on changing everyone’s mind. For someone who’s dealt with war issues pretty well, there is one day from his past that he can never forget or forgive himself for being the cause. The mystery of what that day is and how it changed his whole life makes a nice and steady base for the romance.

    Romance is the focus here, but Elizabeth Pruitt has sealed her heart against any danger of heartbreak since that day eight years ago when Jude cheated on her a mere two days after proposing. Sealing her heart has meant blocking the joys out of life and drowning herself in work. So when Jude Wilde comes a-knocking, Libby wants to either run and hide or murder him on the spot. Though she might be hard to swallow at first, Libby won me over or rather the person she is with Jude won me over. Also, arriving at the secluded safe house in Key West means issues, but thank god, none of those include image issues. For a physically realistic heroine, Libby is comfortable with her built.

    Jude and Libby’s chemistry is off the charts. With banter, heart wrenching honest scenes, and of course the steamy scenes! Good lord, I would so not be able to read them in public and keep a straight face. Summer in Puerto Rico is hot. While reading Wilde Nights, I swear the temp climbed a couple degrees more!

    Oh, and I’ll mention this because it concerns a debate I read about recently. Something as simple as remembering a condom or putting away garbage to not loiter the beach may feel insignificant to point out in a story, but this reader cares and appreciates the thought when authors take the time to mention details like these. Seriously. A sentence is all it takes.

    Finally, the most awesome surprise was that the characters in this book have connections to those in SEAL of Honor. We even meet Seth Harlan and get to know more about him. I’m very hopeful for more of these cameos between the series!

    Awful

    ## Awful. I don't understand all these great reviews. Jude could never be a hero in my eyes. He's horrible. Insufferable and arrogant. He treats the heroine like crap and never fails to mention all the women he's been with since they've been together. And the cheating? Yeah, yeah...I did it to protect you. Excuses are like ass*oles, everyone's got one. And I was only pretending?! Newsflash: Having ones tongue down another woman's throat is not pretending. That IS cheating, you moron. Omg lady, have some pride and throw this guy back. Plenty of fish in the sea.

    I was looking for a hot romance with fun and adventure, Wilde Ni

    I was looking for a hot romance with fun and adventure, Wilde Nights in Paradise was exactly that.

    The story begins with Jude Wilde's family security business being hired to protect Libby Pruitt. The tricky thing is, eight years prior Jude and Libby were engaged. He broke her heart. Libby is still understandably upset with Jude, who has never stopped loving her. When they head to safety in the Florida Keys, the temperature is not the only thing heating up. Jude and Libby have unfinished business, and a chemistry that won't quit.

    Jude and Libby were both written to pitch perfection. Jude is a bad boy with a good heart. He had a tragic childhood that led him to believing he doesn't deserve good things, particularly Libby. It's clear from the beginning that his wrongdoing in their relationship isn't what it seems, and I was anxious to learn exactly what happened and why. Libby was Jude's opposite in many ways, but they definitely complemented one another. The breakup led Libby to become more withdrawn, and Jude sees it as his mission to bring to fun loving girl he not back out to play. Their banter was fun and realistic of two such characters.

    Their chemistry was even hotter. I loved that Jude and Libby had such hot chemistry and I love even more that the author made me believe it right away. The flirting was fun, and the steam between them was even more so. The author painted a very, very nice picture of the intensity between Jude and Libby between the sheets (on the pool table, etc.). I found the scenes to be nice and hot, but not so much that would drive those who shy from the explicit away. They didn't take over Jude and Libby's story, they enhanced it.

    Wilde Nights in Paradise was a fast read that I truly enjoyed. Jude's brothers, who also run the business, all played parts in the story. I would love it if each of these hot, intense Wilde brothers got their own story. <--- Not so subtle hint.

    Wilde Nights in Paradise is another win for Entangled Brazen.

    Lots of authors manage to create enjoyable reads. But it's an entirely different thing to make your readers LOVE your characters. To make them want to climb in the book and pound on people when they're giving the hero or heroine a hard time. To set off that protective don't you mess with my baby hand on the hip pissed off mama bear reaction in someone. And that's where Tonya Burrows gets me. She makes me freaking love her characters.

    I had a great time with Wilde Nights in Paradise and so much fun getting to know Jude and Libby. Their romance combined two of my favorite themes...reunions/second chances and fake mates... these two had a doozy of a break up years earlier and now they're having to pretend to be an item once again to keep her safe from an escalating stalker. Drama, suspense and steam abound! And it was a delightful ride.

    I really loved Wilde Nights in Paradise. Everything about it. Even the parts that made me want to scream I loved because it just showed how much Burrows had me invested in these two. From tears to joyous laughs and surprised moments this was a winner for me

    5 Suspenseful Desire-filled Stars for Tonya Burrow¿s Wilde Night

    5 Suspenseful Desire-filled Stars for Tonya Burrow’s Wilde Nights in Paradise!!




    Now, who wouldn’t want a sexy marine guarding your life with his own? I know I would, but Elizabeth Pruitt isn’t a fan of the idea especially when she learns it’s the man who broke her heart eight years ago. Jude Wilde was always sure to live up to the “Wilde” name since none of his older brothers wanted to do such a thing. Jude is constantly burning bridges and causing destruction wherever he goes because it is easier than dealing with his emotions. He isn’t thrilled when he finds out he will be the new bodyguard to Libby Pruitt, his ex-fiancée. 
    Libby’s life has been threatened and the only way to keep her safe is to hide her away until the mob boss she is prosecuting is behind bars permanently. The problem? It will just be her and Jude in a secluded spot for an undetermined amount of time. Libby has yet to heal from Jude’s betrayal and she isn’t sure she will survive this time around with him. 
    Jude’s one regret in life is what he did to Libby, but he wouldn’t have changed things because it was the best thing for her. Still, Jude never got over the effect Libby had on him and his heart all those years ago. He wants to make things right with her, but he feels he doesn’t deserve the forgiveness or her love. But anything can happen when cooped up with someone that grates on your nerves, yet sparks a desire in you that you thought was long dead. 




    My heart went out to both Libby and Jude and their complicated relationship because of Jude’s betrayal. I was rooting for them from the get go and for Jude to stop covering up his pain with a smile. I adored them as a couple; their arguments, their desire, and, most importantly, their love.




    Tonya’s writing brings you in and doesn’t let go until the story is over, but leaves you begging for more. And if you have read SEAL of Honor, you will see HORNET pop up! (I may have had a giddy moment when that happened) ¿ 
    Can’t wait for more from Tonya Burrows!!




    (I received an ARC for my review and this is my honest-to-goodness, straight from the heart review!)

    But I am intrigued. She has connected this story and her other book, Seal of Honor.

    I am a total Tonya Burrows fan girl!! Loved Wilde Nights in Paradise and can't wait for more books in the Wilde Security series!

    This was such a well written story, couldn't put it down once I started reading it. The chemistry between Jude and Libby is scorching, they are perfect together! There were times I wanted to punch Jude but he was so charming and sweet despite coming off as a hard ass at times. He was also vulnerable and I laughed out loud and loved how he was afraid of spiders! Libby is a successful woman who never really got over the heartbreak of Jude's betrayal, she moved on but her heart never really let go of the one man she truly loved. I adore "second chance" stories and I'm so glad that despite the ups and downs, the stalking of Libby and the secrets, they got that second chance and their HEA.

    For me, the sign of a good book is when it makes me feel so many different emotions and I totally did with this story!

    I got an ARC of Wilde Nights in Paradise from Entangled Publishi

    I got an ARC of Wilde Nights in Paradise from Entangled Publishing in exchange of a honest review.

    This was the first book I read by Tonya Burrows and I'm very happy I gave the book a chance.

    Wilde Nights in Paradise is a second chance in love story, the heroine Libby Pruitt was engaged to the hero Jude Wilde but it didn't less more than a few days and they broke up.

    Eight years later, Libby is a lawyer and she is prosecuting a high profile criminal and when she starts getting threats and her
    dad hire Jude and his brothers security company to protect her.

    In order to protect Libby Jude takes her to a friend's house in the Key West and they find themselves stuck in the house together for weeks and they have to deal with their past.

    Jude's philosophy in life is "burn bridges and never look back" and as the story progress and we learn more about him this philosophy makes more sense, a life changing event that happened to him when he was 10 year old changed him and ever since that day Jude's family saw him as a failure and irresponsible person.

    I loved Jude's character and I felt so bad for him when his brother treated him like the black sheep in the family.

    Libby is not happy that she has to spend so much time with Jude since he broke her heart 8 years ago but she as much as she wants to hate him she is still attracted to him and they end up in bed together. Libby plan was to have a one night of sex with Jude and get him out of her system but she realize that it's not as easy as she first taught since the chemistry between them is still very strong.

    Jude is trying to prove to Libby that is not the same young man she knew so many years ago but it's not so easy to forgot the past.

    I really enjoyed reading Wilde Nights in Paradise, it was funny, emotional (I found myself in tears towards the end of the book when Jude and his brother have a talk) and super sexy book.
    The only thing I enjoyed less was the suspense plot, I figured the stoker identity early on.
    I can't wait to read more books in the series
