The Wilde brothers fall fast - and hard - but unlike Riley and Cooper in their book, The Wilde Riders, see my review of it here, Gracie and Tucker have a slow build towards intimacy. They have reasons to go slow, they've both been hurt, both bear scars, neither think they are worthy, but they are both desperately in need of someone to love them. Tucker and Gracie's romance is lovely, the way they care for each other, accept each other and the grand gesture... I was rooting for them every step of the way. Tucker is our wounded warrior. He can be scary and intimidating but he's also gentle, protective and respectful and treats Gracie like she's special, someone to be cherished. Gracie is tiny but her strength is immense. Her life has been everything from bad to horrific but she doesn't give in. With a little kindness, a bit of help and someone who cares about her she begins to gain confidence and start to take some control over her life. The other brothers? We get to see Riley and Cooper and get a little more insight into the dysfunctional relationship between Harley and Jake (I can't wait for their book!). Up next is Hunter and I'm eagerly awaiting his story. Disclosure: ebook provided in exchange for an honest review

Of the four books this is the sad one... Tucker, next to the oldest brother, was badly wounded in Iraq... Not only is his leg a disaster but his "self" has been badly damaged... Enter Gracie, who was actually sold to a very mean criminal as payment for a gambling debt by her father... Tucker rises to the occasion and its a beautiful read to their HEA... A special story...

3.5/5 This was a quick little read and book 2 n this series. The characters are good and strong and the women and not frail little butterflies (although this one came close). The brothers are hot but in a rustic country way and have a great little life that intertwines with their different lifestyles and pasts. In this book we get reintroduced to Tucker Wilde and learn more about his past. The author fills in the gaps about the characters pasts without going too deep, although a little more would have been nice. Tucker meets Gracie when she stumbles into his bar one day and basically has stumbled into his life. We get to see how the brother's band together to keep Gracie safe yet live their lives. We learn a few secrets about Gracie along the way and the ending is sweet. I look forward to reading more in this series. No big bang boo but it was short, easy and sweet.

** ARC was provided by author in exchange for an honest review ** It took me less than a day to read this book! It's rare that happens (although it's getting more and more these days). After Cooper's story, I couldn't let the Wilde brothers go and went straight on to book 2.. and 3... and already bought 4... I love these 4! Out of all of them though, Tucker was the one that I felt would be... I don't know, boring. From reading Wilde Riders, I assumed he was dark, tortured and moody - which I completely understand, but ... He wasn't. The Wilde brother who put the fear of God in everyone, is quite a softy and officially my FAV! A bombing in Iraq severely injured Tucker, leaving his leg mangled but completely functioning, except for a limp. Tucker thinks that because of this, no woman will ever want him. He can't look at his own leg, so why would someone else, they'd run scared. Gracie - I want to cuddle her so frickin hard - walks into Haymakers with her 'boyfriend' freezing cold, waif thin and scared out of her mind. She's owned by Dex after HER FARTHER sold paid his debt with her at the age of 17! Tucker senses that something isn't right and i'm thankful that he does. he saves her after a quick beating (from Dex) and takes her home. Their love slowly grows and she literally turns the meanest man around into a fluffy puppy dog. *takes a mental note to find her own Tucker* Piece by piece these two overcome their own little problems (fear & his leg) between them.... Until Dex takes what's his. An amazing love story!! Next stop.... Hinter-ville and I'm so excited!

This is book two in the Old Town Country Romance series.  Each book can be read as a standalone. I gave this book 5 stars.  I do suggest you read them all as you won't want to miss out on any of these hot men!!  This is Tuckers story. He's back from Iraq and he's injured physically and mentally.  He has his eyes on Grace and feels a pull towards her. Can these two damaged souls find peace in each other?  I really enjoyed reading this story about Tucker. Gracie finds something in this man that she has been always searching for. Even though they are drawn to each other they still have so many obstacles to over come. Like her ex. This is from both POV so you get to see what each of them are feeling. Tucker saved her, but she saved him too. It is a very emotional and beautiful story.  Thank you Savannah for your wonderful story! I cannot wait to read the next book in this series.

This is my favorite so far in this series. This is Tucker's story. He is a wounded veteran who almost lost his leg. What is left of his leg is functional but not very pleasant to look at. He is damaged in body and soul. It is a horrible memory to recall how his best friend died while shielding him from more harm. PTSD and now the repugnance he feels for his mauled body prevent Tucker from being able to lead a normal life. He has not been with a woman since he first left for the war in Afghanistan. In his mind, having a relationship with a woman will never happen because his body will repulse any woman. Though physically intimidating due to his size and muscles, Tucker is all heart. His instinct to protect a young woman from her boyfriends abuse starts a chain of events that will forever change his life. Protecting Gracie is how Tucker begins to associate with the first woman he has been attracted to in a long time. While protecting her, they begin to confide in each other and the rest is history as they say. This makes for an endearing and passionate story of two damaged lost souls, attracted to each each, each seeking the warmth that can only be found when they are together. Great storyline with all the complications that come with ditching a biker boyfriend from hell!(

Welcome back to rural Old Town, NJ, home of loud trucks, cold beer, country music, and the hot Wilde brothers! In each book of the Old Town Country Romance series, Author Savannah Young weaves an entertaining romantic tale that tells the story of each of the four Wilde brothers: Cooper, Jake, Tucker, and Hunter. In The Wilde One, Author Savannah Young once again calls upon her NJ roots as the reader is transported back to the small rural town of Old Town, NJ, where this time the focus is on Tucker and Gracie's story. Told in the first person narrative, the reader follows Tucker and Gracie as their heartwarming and emotional romance unfolds like a classic country song. Tucker has come home from Iraq as a broken and wounded veteran, a shadow of the fun loving Wilde brother that he used to be. Nineteen year old Gracie Parker has been a victim of abuse her whole life, and the vicious circle of abuse continues in the hands of Dex, her biker boyfriend. When Tucker discovers Gracie being beat by Dex in the parking lot of his family's bar, Haymakers, he dons his warrior white knight armor and rescues her. Can two broken people find solace and love in each other's arms, or will a dangerous threat from an abusive ex-boyfriend stand in their way? I absolutely loved reading Tucker and Gracie's touching story. You can't help but get drawn into their lives, and embrace the beauty of how two broken people's relationship slowly develops with emotional healing and love. I loved the protective instinct that Tucker has towards Gracie, his kind and tender heart simply made me smile. This story is so much more emotionally intense and dramatic than the first book in the series, I loved that the author delved into the dark social issues, pain, and loss that wounded warriors and abuse victims face in their lives. Tucker and Gracie's story is about two people who learn to let go of their painful pasts, find the courage to open up their hearts to trust and love, and discover the self-confidence that is within themselves. Not only are Tucker and Gracie perfect for each other, they complete and make each other whole again! I would be remiss if I didn't mention the brotherly bond, support, and antics of the other three charming Wilde brothers that is once again interwoven in the storyline like it was in the first book. The Wilde One is an emotional romantic tale that has a fun cast of characters, witty and humorous banter, drama, and a sweet and spicy romance set to a country theme.

What a way to be brought back to Old Town.  Young develops this small town with a flourish that makes you feel like you were there.  She also takes an exciting story and draws her readers right into it.  I also love the epilogue.  Young gives a sneak peek into the future without jumping too far ahead.  She lets you know that there is a future without it being set in stone. Many authors can make you feel for their characters or feel what their characters are feeling, but Young takes it to an entirely new level with this one.  She slowly and subtly develops her characters in such a manner that they become part of your life.  Their past is your past.  By creating two main characters who are ‘broken’, irreparably so in some ways, but who fight for themselves and each other you feel drawn to them.  She also switched perspectives between them showing you not only what is happening but how they feel about it.  The way that Young writes allows you to feel their sorrow and pain, their joy and hope on a level unparalleled.  Overall this was a fantastic read that I raced through in a single sitting.  I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to others and will definitely be reading more by this brilliant author in the future. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.

This is book two in the Old Town country romance series. It does standalone perfectly, but I suggest you read The Wilde Riders also whether before or after doesn’t matter, though it if you read it first you get to know the other brothers better. This story is about Tucker Wilde. He is the third of four brothers that live in a small rural town in New Jersey. He and three of his brothers run  the haystack, a bar they inherited form their father.  He is an ex-military man and was injured in Iraq. He suffers from a near loss of his leg and severe PTSD. Gracie is a young girl that has had a very bad life and has her own demons and scars to hide. The man that thinks he owns her (boyfriend is too nice a word for Dex) brings her into the Haystack. Tucker was immediately drawn to her, not just her looks but the way the man is treating her like a possession not a person, by the way she is dressed ( or not dressed for the cold in thin too small clothes while he has warm leather jacket and boots) and that he doesn’t let her speak or order for herself( he gets burger fries and beer and orders her salad and tap water). I loved this story. Tucker is very different from his brothers especially Cooper  and Jake. I love how all four brothers have such distinctive personalities. I also liked how this story had a bit more sadness and drama than the first which matched Tuckers personality.   I found the story very exciting with a bit of a mystery( I swooned when Tucker did what he did to try to prevent Dex from ever coming after Gracie again. I was in shock, and awe. What a valiant thing to do (you really need to read it and see!) the sex in the story is hot and there is a few sex scenes but I chose moderate since though spicy and sexy they are not crass or overly verbally descriptive. I love it! I can’t wait for book three! If you like country boys, ex-military men, broken men and broken women, damsels in distress, Bar tenders country bands, sweet, romantic, sexy, stories this is definitely for you!

I was given this book in exchange for an honest review. This was a short, but captivating read. I found myself unable to put it down until the end. This is part of a series (which I will be buying the others in the series) but it can be read as a stand alone. The characters are relatable and the storyline flows well. Can't wait to read the rest of the series!
