Steamy small town romance full of heart and humor! USA Today Bestselling Series!

Unleash the wild woman…?

Ex-cop Ryan O'Hare takes one look at buttoned-up control freak Liz Garner and just itches to loosen the woman up. Not that he’s into her. Because a woman like that comes with way too many expectations. Not to mention, she practically works for him, and he didn’t hire Liz to watch after his beloved Harley-stealing Gran so he could turn Liz loose in his bed. Still, there’s something about her, a hidden wild side, that makes him wonder what it would take.


Liz must be crazy to work for the insensitive, arrogant, horribly…hot man she's avoided for years. Unfortunately, she needs the money and Ryan's grandmother needs a keeper. (Midnight tango lessons and ziplines with Gran, anyone?) Ryan's rare smile and swaggering confidence have Liz torn between throwing her favorite pinot grigio at his head or throwing herself at him. Can this control freak find a way to let loose with the tough, no-strings guy who once broke her heart?

Miss P L P ,

A brilliant refreshing romance story that you have to read!

The Opposite of Wild was my first book by Kylie Gilmore but definitely won’t be my last! This book definitely makes my favourites list.

I was gripped from start to finish with Liz and Ryan’s story, although at times I wanted to bang their heads together. It was refreshing to read about two characters who felt believable and realistic and set in a realistic setting. I liked how using Maggie added another dimension to portray the two and Maggie definitely added surprising comedy moments to the book!

I felt the story was well paced, with a refreshingly unique storyline on what could be a typical plot and the dual points of views helped strengthen this story further. Although the characters have history, I liked how the author didn’t have them ’falling in love’ instantly, making the story more believable to the reader. Instead, the author showed well the frustrating and warring emotions both characters had towards each other as the story develops.

I would definitely recommend you give this book a read.

Nice enough feel good book. But no great depth to plot and nothing new.

The opposite of Wild

Brilliant book, encapsulates the true feelings and inhibitions of normal people who don't want to get hurt if they declare their love.
A pity that the author had to emphasise the Jewishness, which almost amounted to racism.
We all belong to the human race and have similar feelings, whatever race, religion or background.
