Ok this is the first Jill Shalvis book I have EVER read and let me go ahead and thank Wena b/c I LOVED THIS BOOK! I know I've been saying this often but I simply can't help it and refuse to make excuses for my high grades! lol
First thing I liked about this book is that you jump right into the story. No lagging around in this book. Katie went to run away from her problems and ended up at Wilder Adventures in Cam's bed! Cam had been gone for a year and came back to his room being occupied by Katie who he adorably calls Goldilocks. ;o) From then on all the way to the end its high impact romance. The chase...oh how I love the chase between Cam and Katie. This relationship goes from love/hate to hot and heavy in the matter of days!
Another thing I loved about this story was the side characters. I simply loved them all! Even the evil ex Serena! Serena had been left alone a lot during her relationship with Cam forcing her into another mans arms! (Btw I heard that in Instant Gratification she finds love ;o) but who knows...Oh and I loved how you got into the Wilder family. There is Stone, Cam, TJ and their aunt Annie! And I really enjoyed Annie's side story with her husband Nick. Her and Nick were gong through a dry spell in their marriage and were trying to save what little they had left. It was actually very touching.
One thing you simply can't ignore while reviewing this book is the tenderness between the two as they try to help each other overcome their hardships. Between Katies bad dreams (and Cam being there to hold her when she wakes) and Cam's uncertain path in life (and Katie trying to show him the way) it was just so touching to experience. They bonded perfectly! :*)
"Just keep looking at the moon. Look for falling stars."
She tipped her head up and gasped when she actually saw one. "There!"
"Make a wish."
She closed her eyes and did just that, and when she opened them again he was looking at her.
"What did you wish for?" he asked.
"You believe in wishing on falling stars," she marveled. "The stoic, pragmatic Cameron Wilder, a dreamer after all."
He let out a laugh. "On my way back to Wishful, the night I met you, I wished on one. And if you tell anyone that, I'll deny it."
"What did you wish for?"
He met her gaze. "To feel something."
She held her breath, caught, lost in his eyes. "Is it working?"
"I think it just might be."
She felt her heart click and lock into place. For him. "I wished for great sex. Tonight."
I give this book a total of...
