William “Wild Bill” Reichert and Eve Eden’s story has been on my mind’s waiting list since book two when we found out they once were sweethearts gone sour. I wanted the full story and to see them come together. Who can resist a lady who brings her own vibrator and saves the day in help the the Knights by taping it to a window? If you don’t know what I mean, then go back to my review of Thrill Ride or read the book for this totally awesome scene! These two have a mountain to climb before they get their HEA.
Bill and Eve met when they were young and had a wild, world-wind romance. He was in the navy and she in college. But their worlds were even more far apart. Bill came from the wrong side of the tracks, while Eve was born into money. Their love was true, but Eve was easily pushed around my her father, who ended up destroying their relationship before it had a chance to grow. Now ten years later, Eve is still friends with Bill’s sister, Becky, and fighting the police over a slew of strange occurrences that could have left her dead. Convinced she is being stalked to kill, the only one who believes her is her cousin, a police detective. One final attempt is all it takes for Becky to turn to the Black Knights, Inc. for help.
Bill is drawn to Eve, but considers her a cheat and liar that he can never forgive. She broke his heart to pieces and he still hasn’t been able to move on from their brief but heartfelt relationship so long ago. He can’t turn is back on her though when all the evidence is laid on the table. Now the two are up against a clock, family, and a killer. Emotions are high, passions is thick and the two are coming for a day of reckoning that should have happened a long time ago.
Born Wild is a rollercoaster ride of emotions and action. The love scenes are wicked, but also pretty tame. Comic relief is never far behind as I laughed my tush off more than once. Wrapping passion, comedic relief and action packed scenes together, leave you turning the pages for more.
The secondary characters are kept to a minimum. We see Ace briefly, who really looks out for Eve. Julie Ann Walker always gives you a sneak peak into the next set of love birds by building the tension in the current book. I am so looking forward to the secondary characters getting their own book. They were amazingly in depth with a lot of dark shadows in the closet to give us a rough ride in the next book.
I can always count on JA Walker to give me the best in wanton passion, kick-ass men who take not prisoners, and a love that survives a few laughs.
