Wow!  I absolutely loved this book.  It is now my favorite in the series, which is pretty shocking to me because Shane had set a pretty high standard.  But Troy is total swoon worthy.  The connection between Erin and Troy was so "real" to me.  I loved how even though he was setting her up, it came back to them.  Their story was sweet, fun, smile provoking, and heart racing.  My heart felt heavy at certain parts and I wanted to scream "NO!"  When a book can make me feel that way, then I know it's a good one. I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

This book had me laughing and crying with these two characters of Erin and Troy.It took them awhile a see the chemistry that they shared, but when they do watch out. This is the third book in the series, but can be read as a stand alone. It was great to catch up with Luke and Shane. Highly recommend this book. I read it cover to cover in one sitting. Robin Bielman is on auto buy list now. Love her books!!!

First and foremost, this book is just so sweet, funny and romantic. A total winner. The sex scenes were just mild although still entertaining and they were towards the end where they knew it was pointless fighting that attraction. I've read all 3 books in this series and this has got to be my favorite. Erin, having her heart broken from an earlier years relationship has no confidence that she would not have to experience such again. Yet, seeing her besties looking so blissfully married and all, she can't help but feels the longing for someone too. You will not be able to resist Troy. Not when he is so sensitive and sweet, with a heart of gold, a killer smile and awesome personality. He, on the other hand, does not mind being in a relationship but he wants someone who isn't a thrill and adventure seeker. To avoid having to do grocery shopping which is something he hates, he got himself in on a bet to become Erin's wingman in getting her a boyfriend. As we all know, no one can control love once cupid shoots that arrow and sure enough, Erin and Troy begin fighting the attraction they feel towards each other. I love that the chemistry between Erin and Troy was built through many small and big incidences. And it was through those incidences that they realize their own hearts. I couldn't help smiling, laughing and having lots of warm fuzzies while reading this book. I love how the characters from the earlier books were brought in. And there were quite a few scenes that I really loved, like the football game, Frito the dog and of course, the photo session. Robin is definitely becoming one of my new favorite authors. Can't wait to read more of her books. I received a gift copy of this book for an honest review.

5 "loving this series" stars This is third book in the Three wishes series by Bielman, and it is another winner. Erin, had her heartbroken in college and she has no interest having it happen again. However with all her friends and family happily in relationships, she is thinking that it might not be a bad idea to start dating again. Troy has successfully paired up three happy couples so everyone thinks it would be great to see if he can find Erin the man of her dreams. Not one to pass up on a bet, he sets out to get her a guy. Even though Troy has been attracted to Erin himself, tragedy from his past makes the fun loving, risk taking Erin someone he could never settle with. Despite their best efforts against it, the two fall for each other and both struggle as they honestly worry how well they would work together. Is it possible to put the past behind them and find a future together? Once again Bielman does a great job building up the romance between the characters. Perhaps one of the things I love the most about this series is the small town feel that comes through. The story setting really is realistic and makes you wish you were part of the town. I also love the way she brings the other couples back in to the story. I can't wait to see who the next story will be about. I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.

Wild About her Wingman is such a sweet read!! Its the third in Robin Beilman's Secret Wishes series and just like the rest, this was great! My favorite kind of romance is friends to lovers and thats what Conner and Erin were. From the beginning there is chemistry between the two and you can tell they are meant for one another. A great read!!! I loved it!

If you guys have not read Robin Bielman yet, what in the world are you waiting for? If you like contemporary romance that just makes you smile and feel good, you need to check out her Secret Wishes Series. While series are always good to read in order, I have learned that these can be read on their own and you still will get enjoyment out of it (I have not read the second one - shhh - and yes I own it and it is on my TBR list). In Wild About Her Wingman we get to read about Troy and Erin. Erin's friends are looking for a respectable boyfriend for her and they have all nominated Troy has her matchmaker / wingman. They seem to think he is good at getting people together. Well, you can sort of guess how this is going to go, right? Even though I knew how things would end up (or rather hoped), I wasn't sure exactly how they were going to get there. Boy did I enjoy the ride! Troy is a character who has lived the extreme sport lifestyle and recent circumstances have caused him to be more cautious. Erin, on the other hand, is still into extreme sports and is known as the town's wild child. How can they work when they odds are not in their favor, including the fact that the town thinks Erin is going to corrupt their beloved Troy. Oh boy. The overall plot to the story was great. Sometimes after coming off of reading suspense books I can find contemporary romance sort of lacking in pulling me into the story since there are not normally those same edge of your seat, nail biting scenes. However, with Wild About Her Wingman, I was pulled into the story from the start and held on until the end. Robin knows how to write emotion into her stories. Her characters are very well developed and she is so good at expressing their feelings that make you feel the same things. You hurt with them and laugh with them. Robin sprinkles the perfect amount of little romantic thoughts and actions throughout the story that helped build Troy and Erin's relationship to make it believable. While I loved Wild About Her Wingman, the only thing that sort of nagged at me was Candace. I first thought she was going to be a bigger influence than she was in the story and would have liked to see her role in the story wrapped up a little more in the end. That may have been on purpose? Regardless, it did not take away my enjoyment from the overall story and I highly recommend Wild About Her Wingman to anyone that enjoys contemporary romance.

Once again Robin Bielman has delivered a fun and flirty romance guaranteed to keep you reading right to the HEA. Its the story of Erin and Troy who, on paper, just know they are wrong for each other, but who can't quite stay away from each other. Troy agrees to help Erin find the right guy, but the jokes on him. Robin does a wonderful job of "throwing them together" at every turn and, true to the endings of the other books in the Cascade series, wraps up story in a romantic, over the top fashion. You will enjoy this story even if you haven't read the first two books, but you will definitely want to read all three once you get started! Way to go, Robin!

LOVED IT!   I laughed, I cried... Robin has hit another out of the ballpark with this lovingly tender & cute romance!  I am absolutely in love with Troy. YUMMY!  This is the 3rd installment in Robin's Secret Wishes series. LOL! Every time I read one of her books, I think it's the best yet and Wild About her Wingman is no exception. The friends to lovers plot totally works. Both Troy and Erin have their own devils tormenting them. Troy has vowed never to fall in love with another adventurous woman after losing his 1st love in a terrible accident and Erin has sworn never to lose her heart again after discovering her fiance in bed with another woman. Robin's beautiful writing kept me riveted from beginning to end. I just have to share a quote that made me laugh out loud at 3am: One of Troy's friends commented to Troy: 'I just watched this documentary on the mating habits of whiptail lizards and trust me, if those things can make it happen, you can too, my friend." Robin's books are must-reads for me. I highly recommend this funny, delightful and heartfelt romance! 5 Scrumptious Stars!

Good Book! Wild About Her Wingman (Secret Wishes #3) by Robin Bielman, is an engaging story that will keep a grin on your face long after you have read the very last chapter. The characters are well-developed, likeable and have a great drawing power. This is an entertaining read that flows smoothly from start to finish. This book is about Erin Watters and her ability to finally let go of the past and forge a future with a guy who really gets her. She is adventurous, spontaneous and gets slightly woozy at the sight of a little blood. Luckily, paramedic Troy Strieber is around to bandage her cuts and evolve his status from wingman into boyfriend. I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to read the second book in the Secret Wishes series, Her Accidental Boyfriend, and liked it very much. Wild About Her Wingman, is the third book and can be enjoyed as a standalone or as part of the series. I would recommend it to those of you who enjoy reading about love, trust and sisterly bonding. This is a nice, clean romance that has some flirting, romantic kisses and delightful sexual tension. In exchange for an honest review, I was gifted this book from the author.

I couldn't turn the pages fast enough to find out how Erin and Troy's story unfolded. I knew Ms. Bielman would give them a HEA but the journey there was so much fun with characters that were believeable and true-to-life. Troy seemed to work through his phobia a little too quickly for me but I know there's a limited amount of pages to tie all the loose ends up. All in all, I really enjoyed this book and was glad to have the opportunity to read it.

Loved loved loved it. Troy and Erin are an incredible couple and their story is magical. They've both been hurt by love before and aren't looking for it now but somethings are just inevitable. Wonderful read that I highly recommend.

Wild About her Wingman is a fabulous addition to Robin Bielman’s Secret Wishes series. And having loved Kissing the Maid of Honor and Her Accidental Boyfriend I have to admit to having high expectations. I wasn’t disappointed. The wild child of Cascade, Erin Watters is happiest doing the more extreme of outdoor activities. She’s passionate about what she does and in encouraging others, but what she doesn’t broadcast is how badly her heart was broken and relationships are taboo. That is until her family and friends decide on a little matchmaking competition and for that she needs a matchmaker. Her Wingman? Troy Streiber; sexy, witty and with a huge heart, the Paramedic isn’t a fan of dangerous pursuits, has his own secrets and was the cause of my heart stalling because his words and actions just about rendered me speechless, except for the sighs I emitted. I like my bad boys, but equally I like my thoughtful, gentle, kind-hearted gent’s and Troy is one of these men. And he holds some surprises… …”undressing her. Slowly. Carefully. My hands would be all over her. My mouth too.” Yes, our boy has an aptitude for talking a little on the dirtier side. Lovely. I adored them both. With the most amazing chemistry, both are down-to-earth and realistic, their journey is a perfect blend of fun, discovery and trust and whilst their intimate moments are kept behind closed doors, the build-up is on the hot and sexy side. As has become my modus operandi when reading Robin’s books, I laughed plenty, sighed loudly and swooned myself silly. This book is feel-good sweet romance at its finest and I highly recommend it. I received a copy of this courtesy of the author for an honest & unbiased opinion

You'll go wild for WILD ABOUT HER WINGMAN. Can I just say, I LOVE Robin Bielman? Every book in her Secret Wishes series is amazing, and WILD ABOUT HER WINGMAN is the best yet! Don’t worry if you’re new to the series. You can dive in anytime, anywhere, including here, with book 3. Troy and Erin couldn’t be more wrong for each other. Erin likes to take risks…with anything but love. Her heart has been stomped on one too many times, and she’s down on relationships. She’s content to embrace a carefree, thrill-seeking life. Or is she? The last thing Troy needs is to fall for a daredevil risk-taker, even one as intriguing and alluring as Erin. But their friends see the potential beneath the surface incompatibility and coax them into a “wingman” arrangement—he’ll act as her matchmaker and find Erin the Mr. Right she’s not looking for. Unless Mr. Right happens to be the man staring back at him in the mirror. This story is everything you want in a contemporary romance—smart, funny, even heart-wrenching at times, but in the sweetest, most addictive way. And the ending! I won’t give anything away, so all I can say is…best ending EVER! Give yourself a treat and get WILD ABOUT HER WINGMAN.

I really like this book...actually so far the whole series. I liked that the reasons for their issues on relationships are let know in the beginning (that right there lately for me is a big plus). I like that even though it'a part of a series, you can read as a stand alone. Also the concept of the guy being a wingman for the girl is different than a lot of the books out there. The characters were great. Erin is a adrenaline junkie, it's her way of dealing with her past. Troy is a play it safe man that has a case of acrophobia because of his past. They both were devoted to their families and liked helping others. They end up helping each other also. I thought it had the right amount of sexual tension and it was a good story. I really liked the ending. It was really sweet. Can't wait to read who the next book will be about. *I received this Arc for a honest review*

There's so much room for fun when you've got a guy and a girl trying to play matchmaker for each other! You end up with scenes like this one, which occurs during the first date Troy sets up for Erin: “I should probably let you two have dinner alone,” Troy said. He started to stand. Without thinking, Erin pressed her hand to his thigh to keep him right where he was. “Don’t be silly. You drove all this way, you should stay and eat, too.”“I should?” Surprise and indecision were etched around his eyes. “Please,” she said, not lifting her hand. Bryce seemed nice enough, but there were no sparks. No flutters. She’d give him a chance, but would rather have Troy at her side when she did it. “Uh, well, they do serve a mean fettuccine Bolognese.” “I love fettuccine Bolognese.” She glanced up at the waitress. “I’ll have that, too, please. Bryce?” Bryce looked a little flummoxed. “The eggplant Parmesan.” Troy leaned over so his breath tickled the side of her neck. “He’s a vegetarian,” he whispered. Erin lifted her shoulder to her ear. “And while my leg is quite happy to hold your hand, I got the message.” She discreetly pulled her arm back and hoped her cheeks weren’t turning red. Troy made her forget herself. He scattered her brain cells in a most uninvited way. It was time to focus her attention on her date, Bryan. Bryce. She meant Bryce. LOL! It was nice finally seeing Erin have a HEA--she spent the first two books sitting on the sidelines, cheering on her two closest friends as they find love. Sela and Kagan are both back in book three, helping Erin to get a clue this time. (Because, really. Having a hot, single paramedic be your wingman? Please. Such a waste. Obviously you should be giving the guy a different job!) Troy is a fantastic hero. Not only does he have a drool-worthy uniform, but he's got an absolutely adorable relationship with his four-year-old niece. Who doesn't love to see that? He tries to find Erin a date, really he does--and not just because doing so will get him out of grocery duty for two months. He's genuinely a nice guy who wants to help people, all people, whenever he can. Too bad he's also pretty clueless. I mean seriously, dude--when you can't stop gazing into her eyes and getting distracted by thoughts of what you want to do to her? You're probably not going to be terribly successful finding her someone else. Or be terribly satisfied with the result if you actually do find her someone else. Luckily for Troy, he has a (slightly) older (twin) sister to help set him straight on that score. ;) I loved that Erin--the daredevil extraordinaire--is afraid of her own blood. It made for some cute scenes where she needed to be "rescued" (not that she's a damsel in need of rescuing, of course not!) by a hot paramedic. And his trusty four-year-old sidekick, in one instance. Did I mention, absolutely adorable? And speaking of adorable--the scene where Troy convinces Erin that they should be together is sigh-worthy. And it doesn't hurt that her older brother Luke (yep--he's back too!) has a behind-the-scenes hand in it as well. Robin Bielman's got plenty of room for more books in this series--yay! The youngest Watters sibling, Teague, suffers a romantic disaster in this one and so obviously needs her own happy ending. Troy's work buddy Oliver (the lucky guy who ends up not having to suffer undue ogling at the grocery store for two months) clearly could use a HEA as well. It would be nice to see Bree, Troy's widowed sister find love a second time, and.... See? Plenty of chances to revisit Cascade in the future. And I'll be there for them all, believe me. Want to come along? :) Rating: 4 stars/ B I received a complimentary copy in exchange for an honest review.

I love the sweetness, the tenderness, the romance and how the characters really like each other, before falling in the sack. Another winner from a very talented author! I'm still swooning and can't wait for more.

Erin Watters likes to live life on the edge-- except when it comes to relationships. She’s been burnt before, but when she is dared to let Troy Strieber pose as her wingman and find her a boyfriend... Well, she can’t really refuse a dare, can she? Troy has had enough of the worry that comes with taking risks. After losing his girl friend in a climbing accident, he is more than happy to keep his feet planted firmly on the ground. He agrees to be Erin’s wingman never imagining that she will be the one to show him that true love is a risk worth taking. Robin Bielman has done it again! Once I started reading it, I found I couldn’t stop and I read it in a few sittings. I instantly fell in love with her characters and was rooting for their HEA all along. Robin writes stories that not only draw you in, but also make you feel like you are a part of them. I felt like I was sat sharing a pitcher with Erin, Troy, and their friends and more than once I laughed out loud at Robin’s creative, witty dialogue and word choices. I am already looking forward to the next book!

When heartbreak turns into a happy ending it is almost always a good story... This was cute but again a short read... Worth the time and the money and it is a well thought out storyline with believable characters and good supporting cast... Enjoyed it very much!

I love stories where two people who weren't looking for "the one" end up finding them. It's especially wonderful when both are hurting from past loves and reluctant to enter into anything resembling a relationship even if their attraction to each other is off the charts. Wild About Her Wingman features Erin and Troy who are fighting what they feel for each other as they try to do what's best for the other. My favorite part of this book was the interaction between Troy and Erin. Their dialogues and interactions with each other as they came to know each other better than they had before. I think the most telling part is how Troy exclaimed how grateful he was a friend had seen Erin first and therefore off limits to him.  I also enjoyed the depth to the characters and the issues they had. Once you find out what happened to both Erin and Troy, it's easy to see why they're fighting their feelings so hard. It gets even more complicated when they're thrown together more that makes their spending time together even more dangerous and not just for their hearts. The one thing that bothered me about this book had nothing to do with either Erin or Troy, but to do with mean people. The townspeople and a certain someone who was a bully to Erin. I was disturbed by the lack of action in stopping her in particular and how Erin quietly acquiesced. It didn't really fit in with what I thought was her personality, but then again we all react differently faced with aggression. There's plenty of steam in the book. I was fanning myself at one point. I was happy with Erin's story and a trip back to Cascade to see the gang from the previous Secret Wishes books. I look forward to whatever Robin Bielman writes next. I know it'll have lots of chemistry and a great story.

I really enjoyed this third book in the Secret Wishes Series, wonderful read.  I can't believe, nor can I understand why someone would give this book one or two stars.  This is not a graphic sex book in any way.  Robin Bielman is an excellent romance writer, and knows how to write a love story between two people.  I hope there are more books in this series, I would love to read Charlotte's story and Bree's.

Wild about her Wingman is about Erin Watter's who is know as the wild child of her small town. She is a thrill seeker who had her heart crushed and not ready to get back into a relationship.   Troy Streiber the giving the challenge to be Erin's matchmaker.   Troy job is to watch out for people and seems to always play it safe.  He is Erin's wingman.  This was a great story.  I am big fan of the small town stories.  I love the warm feel when you read them.  Erin is a great character.  She has her moments when she is strong and her moment when she needs someone watching out for her.   Troy is sweet and caring.  I love the way he cares for those around him. This is a great story.  I had a hard time putting the book.

Reviewed by Kim for Read Your Writes Book Reviews Robin Bielman has managed yet again to deliver a hero who's easy to fall in love with and a heroine you would love to have as a friend. Erin Watters has the reputation as being Cascade's "wild child". She loves the outdoors and high altitude sports. In fact, she finds the sports to be fun and freeing, something she discovered after her college sweetheart cheated on her and left her heartbroken. Since the break up, Erin has been licking her wounds and has a strict three date rule, that is if the guy makes it past the first date. Troy Strieber is a rescue paramedic who loves his family, especially his four and three quarters-year-old niece, and his job. His job exposed him to one of the worst days of his life. Since that day, Troy has become a changed man. He's now a play by the rules, safe guy, who doesn't take risks. Erin and Troy are thrown together by their friends with the goal that Troy will find THE guy for Erin while playing her matchmaker/wingman. What the two don't expect is to consistently find themselves on dates together. While these two have the physical attraction to each other down pat, the question becomes can a girl who likes to climb mountains be happy with a guy who likes to keep his feet on the ground. These two will have to figure out that there's a time to play by the rules and there's a time to break them. They will have to risk their hearts for the greatest reward of their lives. I really enjoyed this fun read from Robin. Oh, word of caution, be prepared to laugh and laugh. Source: Publisher
