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.
I have not previously read any of Tonya Burrows’ Wilde men books and I am so sorry I haven’t; not that you need to read it to follow this one (it can be read standalone) but because I loved this book so much I wish I knew all of the Wilde stories. I may just have to fix that & go buy the rest of the books.
This story follows the oldest Wilde man – Greer, and his former ballet dancing neighbor – Natalie. When we first meet Greer he is just an angry, rude man who she doesn’t ever really get a chance to know; but after some trouble lands him in front of Natalie’s door she realizes she has to help him. Little did she know what she was getting into. Now Greer is trying to figure out how to get the sweet dancer back out of his life before she gets involved in the trouble that landed him injured on her couch to begin with.
This book had so much in it that I couldn’t find anything lacking about it. There was suspense, there was some action, there was romance and even some humor. The romance was there, but it wasn’t center stage in the story so I probably would’ve classified this differently; it could probably go under a romantic suspense label too if it wasn’t already. The interaction between the main characters was well rounded and sometimes I cried because I was empathetic to them & sometimes I laughed because the Wilde men’s antics were just too much. Honestly the only complaint I really have about this book is that I wish the climax was a little longer – it was fast paced & moved quickly, but I wasn’t quite expecting the wham, bam, thank you ma’am. Granted, if the climax was longer, others might think it was dragged out longer than it needed to be so maybe it was perfect the way it was – I just want more of the Wilde men.
