The Wilder brothers have retired from the military and as they’re forced to learn a new life, things get interesting fast in this kickoff to a brand new steamy, contemporary romance series from NYT Bestselling Author Carrie Ann Ryan.
One dance at a stranger’s wedding. That’s all it took for me to fall for Alexis.
And then? Disaster. Another man—her boyfriend—gets down on one knee and proposes to her.
I never thought I’d see her again.
Years later, I’m in desperate need of a wedding planner—not for myself, but for my company.
My five brothers and I need to get our new Wilder Resort off the ground, and Alexis is the only one savvy enough to help us.
But there’s the little matter that I still have it bad for her. Alexis has changed since the night we met. She’s gun shy. But there’s a spark between us that will not die. We both fight it, until we don’t.
Until history repeats itself. The same guy who took her away from me is back to do more damage. But this time he’ll have to go through me to get her.
An enjoyable start to the new Wilder series!
Eli and Alexis’s story is complicated. In A Night for Us, prequel to One Way Back to Me, we see the spark between Eli and Alexis as they meet at a wedding (where she’s the wedding planner) however, Alexis’s boyfriend publicly pops the question and, well, that’s that for Eli.
Or is it? Fast forward a few years and Eli, along with his brothers who have established Wilder Resort, is looking for a wedding planner to fill the position recently vacated. And who applies? Alexis.
Both Eli and Alexis have had some bumps in the road along the way. It has taken tremendous effort on all of the brothers’ part to get the resort, which includes a winery, running the way they envisioned it. Alexis has wounds from a failed marriage and fallout around that. Alexis needs this job as much as the Wilders need her wedding planner skills.
But is the spark still there between Eli and Alexis? Are they both in a place where they want to act on it? There’s some definite angst but also such sweet times. And getting to know most of the brothers a little better, plus the other supporting characters, adds to the fun! An enjoyable start to the new Wilder series!

Great first book in this series!
This is the first book in the Wilder Brothers series and it features Eli and Alexis. They had one sizzling hot dance, at a wedding, a couple years ago. When it was over, she turned around and what he saw waiting for her made him walk away. Now, he’s getting ready to interview her for the wedding planner position at Wilder Retreat. Neither of them has forgotten that dance nor the chemistry they had that made it so memorable.
A NIGHT FOR US is the prequel to this book and it explains exactly what happened at that wedding a couple years ago. This is a fantastic first book in this series! Six brothers get out of the military and buy a retreat/winery in Texas. This series is comprised of each of their stories and their struggles to make their retreat a lucrative investment for them all. The characters are absolutely amazing, as this author is known to write. The Wilder brothers also have a sister, Eliza, that is married to Beckett Montgomery and their story can be read in INKED OBSESSION. Fantastic read! I can’t wait for the next one!
