♦BLURB♦

Tate “The Saint” Donovan’s jaded outlook really makes him more of a devil’s advocate. Ever since he discovered his ex-wife doing more in their bedroom than rooting for the home team, he’s given up on finding The One. In fact, he’s given up on finding Any One. So he isn’t surprised when his teammate’s engagement party is one mishap away from going up in flames—until a sexy, free spirit whisks in from Paris and drags the party from the fire. She’s whimsical, wild, and oh so wrong, but her breezy, freestyle attitude makes her utterly irresistible. Tate’s halo slips. He takes a walk on the wild side. And discovers wrong has never felt so right.

With big plans on the horizon, Olivia’s laissez faire attitude toward men is a perfect pairing. She’s drawn to Tate’s wounded soul, and the protective warrior beneath his brooding mask intrigues her…right into bed. Olivia quickly realizes the possessive passion he brings to the bedroom is like nothing she’s ever experienced, and her feelings for Tate turns her take-it-or-leave-it style love life on its head.

With her return to Paris imminent and his grueling hockey season approaching, Olivia and Tate must face the possibility that they are destined to be nothing more than star-crossed lovers.

 

♦4.5-STAR REVIEW♦

Olivia and Tate shouldn’t work at all. She’s a jet-setting nomad who doesn’t want to come back home and Tate’s a star hockey player recently scorned by his ex-wife. The wounded man and the woman who won’t settle; you can’t find two people who are more unalike if you tried. But, somehow, Jordan pulls off their connection in WILD ZONE. It’s frantic and wild, but grounded in something so very real.

The dynamic between Olivia and her family, the deeply seated battle she’s fought for years, was beautifully and sadly painted. I felt the separation she felt, the upward impossibility, and the sheer loneliness. I love how Jordan portrayed her and captured that nomadic spirit without making her flighty or mean-spirited. She’s nothing that Tate would normally go for, and it was fun to see him grasp at straws in trying to understand her. He was easy to connect to as everyone has been burned at one point, and he skirted that hopeless slash hopeful line well while maintaing that sexy alpha quality.

WILD ZONE was sexy and vibrant. Both characters felt different and unique, most especially Olivia. Their dynamic simply worked. I think the only element missing was more hockey, but I can’t really complain about that. Some readers will have issue connecting to Olivia, but Jordan worked it so that I did get there and manage to love her character, and if readers stick with it, they will too. Following with the rest, it’s another easy to read, fun to enjoy, and very sexy novel in the Rough Riders series.

♦ABOUT THE AUTHOR♦

Sometimes fun. Sometimes naughty. Always romantic.

I am a New York Times Bestselling Author writing under the pseudonym Skye Jordan for my more … sexually heated … works.

My Skye Jordan novels are all about enjoying that little wild streak we all have, but probably don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we usually don’t get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, playing naughty and maybe even acting a little wicked. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance.

And, yes, even love. Because even as Skye Jordan I’m just a happily ever after kinda gal.

Thanks for reading!
