Review: Get Wilde

Get Wilde Get Wilde by Shelly Alexander
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Once again, Shelly Alexander has knocked it out of the park!

Get Wilde is about Ethan Wilde who runs the successful chain of gyms, A Pound of Flesh. He wants to take his chain further afield, but to do that, he needs more cash. That's where the competition, Weekend Warriors, comes in. This fast-paced competition has some big sponsors, and a lot of money riding on it. If he can train his team to be the best, he'll be in for a cool million - just the cash injection he needs.

I'll be honest, at first, I thought he was a bit of an arrogant prick, but it didn't take long for him to win me over. There's something about a man who has been broken that pulls on my heartstrings. You'll find yourself falling more in love with him as the story goes on.

The female lead, Adeline, certainly gives him a run for his money. The feisty red-head gets under his skin and becomes quite the distraction.
I love Adeline. She is such a strong character, someone who has been through some pretty terrible things, and somehow, still come out the other side. She shows us that no matter what life throws at you, you can always find a way out by putting your energy into something positive.

This book shows the true competitive nature of athletes, and the pressures to succeed at all costs. We get to see how much training is involved in an event like this, and how much athletes push their bodies, even to the point of injury.

Once again, a fantastic read from this author. I simply adore this series and you will too!
