Synopsis

Darren Bridge is living a bachelor’s dream. When he’s not running into burning buildings with his crew, he’s training the flavor of the week at his brother’s gym. Few women have ever been off limits...until Vanessa. Smart, beautiful, and legs for days, she’s unlike anyone he’s ever met. Too bad he’s sworn to leave her alone.

Overworked with no end in sight, Vanessa Hawkins hasn’t had a vacation in nearly two years. When Cameron and Maya’s destination wedding takes her out of the office for a much-needed break, she finds herself struggling to resist her attraction to the best man. Darren is dangerously good-looking with enough charm to make any hot-blooded woman want to drop her panties and enjoy the ride, no matter how long it lasts.

When they return to the city, Darren realizes the single life has lost its glimmer. But with everything else on her plate, Vanessa doesn’t have room in her life for a man, let alone a player. Can Darren find his way into her heart and convince her that he’s worth the risk?

My Rating:



Favorite Quotes:



I had no secrets in Callaway and no way to escape the story that other people threw around like social currency, whitewashing their own secrets.


I could see now where Olivia got her ice princess tendencies.  Her mother carried an air of superiority that could not be missed.  I was surprised it didn't knock people over when they passed her in the street.


Every time he shot me that perfect smile of his, the small-town girl in me wanted to cook him dinner and press his shirts for the rest of my life.


She was free of an old life, a chapter past, and reaching for a dream she'd never really accepted as her own before.


She smiled sweetly, and in that moment, my love for her took residence in every cell of my body.


My Review:



Into The Fire was my first Meredith Wild experience - so I'm busting my buttons with pride to say I've now been Wilding!  It was a like an extended joyride in a new, sleek, and sexy car, that had been duly appointed with all known upgrades.  The writing was smart, engrossing, richly detailed, evocative, creatively steamy, and frequently sensual.  Using a dual POV the story weaved between two main characters with explosive chemistry and an undeniable attraction.  Although, they were also hampered by poor timing and several social issues and barriers between them, with the most troublesome being his history and well-deserved reputation for being a selfish player and a jackass.  Add in family drama and tension, a tropical wedding location, bad boss issues, and corporate intrigue; and the plot thickens.  I was instantly addicted to the Wilding experience.
