Book Review -- Wilde Times by Savannah Young


Wilde TimesWilde Times by Savannah Young
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A digital copy of this book was provided to me in exchange for an honest review.

It's been a while since I read a breezy countryside romance and this book fit the bill pretty well. Having not read the first three books in the series, I presumed I would find it hard to relate to the characters. But the author has done a good job in weaving this story as a stand-along tale. The story revolves around the Wilde brothers. While three of them have settled down with partners of their choice, with one about to get married, one expecting a baby and one dating a movie star, the spotlight is on the one left out - the oldest Wilde brother, Jake. Jake is someone with no bonds and shackles and prefers to be with a different woman every day. Completing this picture is the sweet Harley, the Wildes' childhood friend who has been obsessed with Jake. Although his frivolous ways move her to tears every time, she is unable to shake her mind off him. Does Jake realise that Harley is the girl for him, or does Harley move on to someone who can give her his heart and attention, is what the book takes us through.

In line withe premise of the book, all things about the tale are smooth, easy and casual - the narrative, the characters and the plot. The plot is a bit predictable towards the second half, but the pace of the book compensates for that and manages to hold the readers' interest nevertheless.

I definitely recommend this book to lovers of contemporary romances.

My rating for this book: 4 stars
