“She wants to get Wilde. She should be careful what she asks for.” –Ethan Wilde

There are worse things in life than owning a thriving business in the heart of Manhattan and being labeled one of the Big Apple’s most eligible bachelors. Trust me, I know. I’ve had some bad $h!t go down before I got to where I am.

No matter what curve balls life lobs at me, I take a swing. If I strike out, I learn, adjust, and make the best of it. For instance, when an injury ended my dream of playing in the Bigs, I could’ve sunken into self-pity. When my fiancée dumped me about thirty seconds after the major league scout did, I could’ve become a drunk. Instead, I got off my ass, finished my senior year of college, and put the degree my baseball scholarship earned me to work.

Seven years later, I’m living a new dream. I’m single, well off, and about to take my business to the next level. I’ve got plans for A Pound of Flesh Fitness gyms to open nationwide.

Except the one person standing between me and my dream has become a fantasy. A hot, redheaded fantasy. My competition…my business enemy, is five feet nothing and packed full of dynamite, and I can’t get her out of my mind or my fantasies. Her sexy as sin body, her sultry voice, and her bold personality that’s just as fiery as her hair may have gotten under my skin, but there’s no way I’ll let her stay there.

Because no one gets to Ethan Wilde.

There’s just one little detail I can’t stop wondering about. The one thing that has brought men down since the beginning of time. I can’t leave it alone until I know for sure: Is she a true redhead?

Bestselling author Shelly Alexander brings you this brand new series of super sexy, sizzling hot heroes. It’s a fun, flirty, and dirty series written in the male POV.

If you like your romance hot and fun, then grab a comfy spot under a fan and enjoy! If you like them sweeter with a touch of steam, try Shelly Alexander’s Red River Series.



My Rating:


Favorite Quotes:


She’s kind of scary when she gets pissed off. Angry Grace grows fangs and hair on her knuckles.


Poor guy. He must’ve lost his spot in line when they were handing out IQs.


So, go pitch a tent under her apartment window and sing love songs until she gives in a agrees to talk to you… The fact that you’re willing to embarrass yourself for her will melt her heart. Or she’ll hear you out just to get you to stop singing.



My Review:


Get Wilde was a quick and jocular read – packed with naughty fun and erotic sensual scenes. Written in the first person POV of Ethan, I was entertained and engaged with the active and eventful storyline. Ethan was a sexy, one and done man about town. His rules of no entanglements served to guard his heart after being badly burned by his ex. His rules had worked for him for many years – until they didn’t anymore. Ethan’s inner musings were quite salacious, highly amusing, and full of naughty innuendo,  smart-ass observations, and the humorous and inventive use of conjuring visualizations of wrinkly guys in the sauna to tame his trouser monster. The writing was humorous, witty, observant, and deliciously lascivious.   After reading this clever tale, I am feeling a sudden interest to take up yoga. Just proving, yet again, there are healthy benefits from reading smut.
