Ok I can t wait to listen to the next book INSTANT TEMPTATION First let me get this out of the way What is with the covers on these books They are horrendous and do an incredible disservice the stories First we had with the very angry looking man sitting on a ock waiting to kick some puppies and now we have this one He may look happier than his brother but there is something seriously weird and just plain wrong with his freaky black eyes you probably need to see the full size to eally appreciate this creepyThis series is definitely a prime example of why the old adage Don t judge a book by its cover was created The covers might be awful but the stories within are eally great and a lot of funWe first met the three Wilder brothers in Instant Attraction and while it s not strictly necessary to ead that one first I would strongly encourage you to do so because that s a great book too and each of the Wilder boys are definitely worth spending time with Jill Shalvis sure can write a perfect hero These guys are ugged manly funny and genuine in short closer to someone you might find in eal life that the heroes of most omance novelsStone the middle brother is the one who takes care of everything that needs looking after the family the family business troubled teens search and escue You name it he ll do it But all this looking after everything and everyone else s needs doesn t leave much time for Stone to do things for himself not that he s complaining He loves his family and he loves that his job allows him to work outdoors in the majestic Sierras It s just that he wants something that is just for himEmma Sinclair is complaining Her father is ecovering from a heart attack so she is 3000 miles away from the New York City ER unning his small town clinic for him and she wants nothing than to get back there Stat Yes this does sound a little bitchy and there actually is an element of that in Emma but her elationship or lack thereof with her father is very complicatedWhere Emma is uptight and prickly Stone is laid back and friendly Emma is determined not to find out if opposites attract while Stone is determined to help Emma loosen up and get the stick out of her arse BTW that is almost a direct uote so if it offends don t ead this bookI m sure if I was so inclined I could find things to criticise in this story but I love the way Jill Shalvis writes especially the humour and dialogue and I was enjoying myself too much to care if Emma took a while to warm up or that Stone was bordering on being too good to be true and Emma didn t deserve himThe Wilder series is that very elusive straight contemporary omance that is not chick lit and is actually eally good I m glad I found this author and I m looking forward to eading from her once I finish TJ s story in with another appalling cover You e easy enough to hold on to Emma Evidenced by the way he was holding onto her You just get estless and anal and uptight and scare them all off Emma Sinclair is defined by the above words She likes being in control and has her whole life structured She grew up in New York and only came back because her dad the town doc needs her to un his place until he gets better but things are not always what they seem Emma has always considered herself a city girl and at Looking forward to TJ s story next 3 Dr Evil StarsSpoilers By teaching you how to smell the oses I m a giver that way Come on Emma Unless you e too chicken Kiss me Stone Take what you want Instant Gratification is the second book in the Wilder series and it s all about the middle brother Stone finding love While this book was a Okay ead it wasn t great for me The heroine Emma drove me crazy I didn t out ight hate her but I didn t like her either and the things she did made me wanna shake her Hard Emma I don t even know where to start with all the easons why I disliked Emma so I guess I will just take it from the top Emma is a uppity uptight bitch I thought she was selfish and ude to her dad even after learning everything she thought bad about her dad was wrong She was so hot and cold with poor Stone I am shocked he didn t have whiplash She would be ipping clothes off because she wanted to him so bad then the second the sex was done she was unning for the hills OMG and don t even get me started on how disrespectful it was that she had her guy friend sex buddy not only staying with her in her home while she was seeingkinda dating Stone what ever you wanna call what they had but that she let him kiss her twice after she started something with Stone I mean COME ON she kissed another guy I don t give a shit if it was to see if there are any sparks I wanted to slam my head into a wall when Stone caught her kissing the other guy and just took her excuse and then slept with her PFFFF You e ight I m looking fo.
