Efinitely a prime example of why the old adage Don t judge a book by its cover was created The covers might be awful but the stories within are really great and a lot of funWe first met the three Wilder brothers in Instant Attraction and while it s not strictly necessary to read that one first I would strongly encourage ou to do so because that s a great book too and each of the Wilder boys are definitely worth spending time with Jill Shalvis sure can write a perfect hero These guys are rugged manly funny and genuine in short closer to someone Rebelde Rendición (Saga Londres, you might find in real life that the heroes of most romance novelsStone the middle brother is the one who takes care of everything that needs looking after the family the family business troubled teens search and rescue You name it he ll do it But all this looking after everything and everyone else s needs doesn t leave much time for Stone to do things for himself not that he s complaining He loves his family and he loves that his job allows him to work outdoors in the majestic Sierras It s just that he wants something that is just for himEmma Sinclair is complaining Her father is recovering from a heart attack so she is 3000 miles away from the New York City ER running his small town clinic for him and she wants nothing than to get back there Stat Yes this does sound a little bitchy and there actually is an element of that in Emma but her relationship or lack thereof with her father is very complicatedWhere Emma is uptight and prickly Stone is laid back and friendly Emma is determined not to find out if opposites attract while Stone is determined to help Emma loosen up and get the stick out of her arse BTW that is almost a direct uote so if it offends don t read this bookI m sure if I was so inclined I could find things to criticise in this story but I love the way Jill Shalvis writes especially the humour and dialogue and I was enjoying myself too much to care if Emma took a while to warm up or that Stone was bordering on being too good to be true and Emma didn t deserve himThe Wilder series is that very elusive straight contemporary romance that is not chick lit and is actually really good I m glad I found this author and I m looking forward to reading from her once I finish TJ s story in with another appalling cover 3 Dr Evil StarsSpoilers By teachingou how to smell the roses I m a giver that way Come on Emma Unless Wretched Moments you re too chicken Kiss me Stone Take whatou want Instant Gratification is the second book in the Wilder series and it s all about the middle brother Stone finding love While this book was a Okay read it wasn t great for me The heroine Emma drove me crazy I didn t out right hate her but I didn t like her either and the things she did made me wanna shake her Hard Emma I don t even know where to start with all the reasons why I disliked Emma so I guess I will just take it from the top Emma is a uppity uptight bitch I thought she was selfish and rude to her dad even after learning everything she thought bad about her dad was wrong She was so hot and cold with poor Stone I am shocked he didn t have whiplash She would be ripping clothes off *because she wanted to him so bad then the second the sex was done she was running for *she wanted to him so bad then the second the sex was done she was running for hills OMG and don t even get me started on how disrespectful it was that she had her guy friend sex buddy not only staying with her in her home while she was seeingkinda dating Stone what ever Estimating centrifugal compressor performance you wanna call what they had but that she let him kiss her twice after she started something with Stone I mean COME ON she kissed another guy I don t give a shit if it was to see if there are any sparks I wanted to slam my head into a wall when Stone caught her kissing the other guy and just took her excuse and then slept with her PFFFF You re right I m looking for an excuse to blameou when the truth is I m so grateful that Falling Under (Walker Security you were there that day that I don t even care whyou didn t tell me I m picking a fight because because I m a coward Don t make up an excuse to run away I don t need a pretty lie Stone Stone is the only saving grace in this book He was fun laid back and sweet He has a big heart and took care of everyone Some of the things that came out his mouth OMG is Stone sweet He works so hard to get Emma to loosen up I really thought he could do so much better than Emma Just saying Well here s a memo for ou life

AGAIN I DIDN T REALLY CAREI didn t really care Emma and Stone as a couple because I feel like Stone was always working so damn hard just to get her to loosen up and spend a little time with him She was just like a bitchy wet blanket I did love the TJ Stone brother moments and I loved the Annie Nick news I would have liked to see Katie and Cam again I missed them a lot in this book Over all this book was ok but not a great read It s hard to love a book when ou can t stand half of the main couple Oh well I am on to TJ s book You You offering All the Devils are Here your heart and soul to everythingou do It changed me You changed me. Lp Emma learn to loosen up a bit he pictures white water rafting or scenic mountain hikes Not a mind blowing affair that shakes them both to the core Emma's sure she has no place in a town like Wishful but Stone knows different Emma belongs here in this town in his life And convincing this strong minded stubborn sexy woman of that fact will be a challenge no Wilder man could resi. ,
Ooks like he is saying Come here baby I ve got a secret It took me a while to block him out of my head and replace him with my mental image of the hero The guy on the cover of the first in this series Instant Gratification looked angry and constipated I don t know what they are going for but it s not working for me However cover model exasperation aside this is a good seriesStone is my favorite Beta man Ahhh Stone that is one of the sexiest hero names I ve come across in awhile He s the middle brother of three that run a wilderness adventure lodge He s the organized brother He keeps everything running smoothly However recently he s realizing this isn t enough for him His true passion is remodeling and flipping real estate He keeps this to himself of course because he s got to run the family businessEmma is a NYC doctor that has come to the small town in the Sierras to run her doctor fathers clinic while he recuperates from a heart attack She is very trying on This Reader s patience She s a classic Ice ueen She is all business and uite honestly a mean bitch Stone describes early on as Dr Evil I d agree with him She hates being in the small town she resents her father for her having to come here she s pissed at herself because she is attracted to Stone and he is not her type For some reason Stone likes her and tries to get her to loosen up and this is not an easy task Emma tries to keep herself closed off because she practically has one foot out the door She s antsy to get back to her life More than once after they have some kind of intimacy she gets up and dresses and stomps off and leaves him because she can t handle feelings I was thinking she s like the female version of that Alpha that I don t really like but the woman always softens him up In this one Stone does attempts the softeningWill Stone realize his dream of remodeling old buildings Will Emma stay Will Stone leave with her Will she flat out dump him You ve got to read it to see I really like Ms Shalvis humor and I can t wait for the third book 4 stars Contemporary RomanceInstant Gratification is the second book in Shalvis s Wilder series about three brothers Cameron Stone and TJ who ownrun Wilder Adventures and Expeditions an extreme tourssports adventure company in the town of Wishful California in the Sierra Mountains The three sexy rugged outdoorsmen extreme sport enthusiasts

kids He s a total dream beta hero sweet fun flirtatious caring sensitive loyal and sexy as all get out Stone is flat out the best thing about the book and it s too bad that the heroine is an *anal

powerhouse ER doctor from New York who comes back to her hometown of Wishful to run her estranged father s emergency clinic while he recovers from a heart attack and is unable to carry on as the town s good ole Doc Of course she resents every minute of it and can t seem to adjust to the small town way of lifepatients who pay for their services in casseroles and gossipoutrageous Emma longs to get back to her fast paced job and important big city life complete with Starbucks and Thai take out There were some aspects of this story that reminded me a little of Robyn Carr s Virgin River but it s not nearly as good I m a fan of author Jill Shalvis and loved the first book Instant Attraction in the Wilder series so I had high hopes and expectations for this one Although it s a pleasant enough read and a nice steamy contemporary romance with a super dreamboat hero it just didn t have uite the same zing or humor as the previous book I think the main reason I didn t like it as much is that I spent almost the entire book wanting to slap some serious sense into Emma or for her to just get lost in the woods or take a hike so that Stone could find someone who actually appreciated what an amazing man he is I just couldn t fathom his attraction and heartfelt devotion to her but I guess sometimes in real life there are hot practically near perfect guys who datemarry frosty cold btches that leave us befuddled as to what they see in them and wondering how the hell they wound up together And Emma does warm and wise up towards the end but for me it was a little too lateOverall it s a good contemporary romance and an enjoyable read with a very ummy gratifying beta hero I ll definitely read the next book Instant Temptation which is TJ s story and set for release April 2010 4 stars
