Playing it safe never felt so risky.
Erin Watters is her small town’s resident wild child—she doesn’t do boring, and after having her heart annihilated, she definitely doesn’t do relationships. Her friends have other ideas, though, and when they throw down a matchmaking challenge, impulsive Erin can’t ignore it. Even when the annoyingly hot Troy Strieber accepts the matchmaker role…
As a rescue paramedic, Troy’s used to watching out for people. Never mind the bet he made with his buddy to play Erin’s wingman. But the more time he spends with the sexy, charismatic woman, the more he discovers a side of her she doesn’t let many see. Soon what started as an innocent game of matchmaking has them both thinking about the person right under their nose. But Troy’s a play-it-safe guy, and he won’t let a woman who lives for risk ever steal his heart.
A couple of months ago, when I had a bit of a bad reading experience, I came across Robin Bielman’s second Secret Wishes book, Her Accidental Boyfriend and it cleansed my reading soul with its light, sweet vibe. I’ve been looking forward to Erin’s story since then and I am happy to say that I enjoyed it just as much.
So, here are my thoughts on Wild About Her Wingman:
The matchmaker trope is oft-used, but I love the twist that Robin Bielman gives it in Wild About Her Wingman – with it being the guy this time and having him act as her….well, wingman.
I love the background to Troy becoming Erin’s wingman – he does it initially to avoid the grocery shopping at the station. Hands up, ladies (& gents), if you know someone who would do this! You can’t see it, but my hand is up right now.
Erin is awesome – she is active, daring and fearless. Troy is that strong, steady hero that I really enjoy reading (not to mention the whole hot paramedic thing). I love that the relationship that builds between these two is not instant “WHAM! Let’s get freaky” kind of business – it builds from smaller moments, and works really well for me.
Both have experienced heartbreak in the past and for whatever reason, have avoided getting involved with someone who has the potential to make that happen again. I really like how the emotions of this are explored, without making the story too soppy.
I’ve loved the first two books in this series, and as always enjoyed catching up with old characters and finding out how they are tracking along. I hope there are more stories to be told in the Secret Wishes series, but if not, you will definitely continue to find Robin Bielman on my Kindle.
