Genre: Romance, Mystery & Suspense
Title: Too Wilde To Tame
Series: Wilde Security #5
Author: Tonya Burrows
Publisher: Entangled: Ignite
For three years, ballet teacher Natalie Taggart has lived across the hall from grumpy, reclusive, sexy Greer Wilde. Save for a handful of hellos and the occasional heated glance, they never spoke to each other.
Until the morning Greer lands on her doorstep, bleeding, beaten, and bullet-riddled.
Greer doesn’t need or want her help. He has only one goal: revenge. And nobody– not his brothers, and certainly not his too-hot-for-his-sanity next-door neighbor –is going to get in his way.

This was one of the more surprising reads of 2017 thus far. It started out a little slow for me mainly because the points were driven with just a sentence or two more than necessary, but that’s just a personal opinion. Still, it lagged a bit for me, slowly drawing up the intensity happening around the characters, and it isn’t until a chapter afterwards that things start to really get interesting.
I was totally blown away by how much this changed for me from the start of the book to the end. It went from what I just repeated twice to suddenly me being extremely invested in their romance and totally falling for the family dynamic that I wasn’t even a part of.
Like, oh my God, I think I cried the more I got into the story, it was that intense. And this is the first time I’ve read anything of the author (what a way to start right? lol) but in all honesty, I’m glad I started the finish of a series because if not for this tour, I don’t think I would have ever given this series a shot, let alone his brother’s book that starts it all. I’m more of an urban fantasy reader, so veering off into a romantic thriller was definitely new territory for me. They’re hits or misses when it comes to my particular mood (which is generally dragons and necromancers) which is why I can happily say that I’ll definitely be checking out the rest of the Wilde brothers.
I liked the writing style, a little lengthy in small areas, but perfect in the others. Greer and his brothers are just adorable, but I have a major soft spot for Greer himself. Whether it was because he was so vulnerable and personal in this, or was just straight up cute, I’ll never know, but one thing this book was not is boring. It was suspenseful, entertaining, hot and heartfelt. And if it can make a newbie like me want to invest my time in a whole series, well… the author’s doing something right, isn’t she?
