Erin Watters is her small town’s resident wild child—she doesn’t do boring, and after having her heart annihilated, she definitely doesn’t do relationships. Her friends have other ideas, though, and when they throw down a matchmaking challenge, impulsive Erin can’t ignore it. Even when the annoyingly hot Troy Strieber accepts the matchmaker role…

As a rescue paramedic, Troy’s used to watching out for people. Never mind the bet he made with his buddy to play Erin’s wingman. But the more time he spends with the sexy, charismatic woman, the more he discovers a side of her she doesn’t let many see. Soon what started as an innocent game of matchmaking has them both thinking about the person right under their nose. But Troy’s a play-it-safe guy, and he won’t let a woman who lives for risk ever steal his heart.

REVIEW:

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.
