The newest sizzling romance from Audrey Carlan, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Calendar Girl series.
Twice my life changed in a single day.
The first was when I lost my parents. Hand in hand I walked with my big sister up the steps of Kerrighan House, a foster home for girls. We were lucky to be met with open arms and a house filled with children just like us. Children who’d lost everything. From that day forward, we were raised as one big family. Our bonds of sisterhood were strengthened through shared experience, pain, sacrifice, and love. Sisters not by blood, but by choice.
The second day my life changed was on the worst day of my adult life. My boyfriend broke up with me via text. My sleazy boss hit on me, forcing me to quit a job I desperately needed. And the cherry on top, was getting pulled over by an FBI Agent. Little did I know, he’d also save my life that night.
From the moment we met, Agent Fontaine wouldn’t dare let me out of his sight. And between his alpha ways, kind brown eyes, and heroism, I was lost to the man who hid behind his job. But this agent had a rule: never fall for a woman you’ve saved.
Yet I wasn’t just any woman. I was known among my sisters for taking risks and dreaming big. I was the wild child of the group. We were raised to appreciate every day as the gift it was, and not let anything stand in our way. The more I got to know the brooding, serious FBI man, the more I realized that maybe it was my duty to save him.

Sexy, Suspenseful, and Sweet
I'm not typically a cover person in that I hardly ever choose my reads based on what's on the front of a book. Something, though, about the cover for WILD CHILD by Audrey Carlan just called to me, and I found myself signing up to read a book that I thought might not actually resonate with me. I'm happy to say that this is not the case.
From the cover and the description of the book, I thought that Simone might be too young, too flighty, too, well, too flaky, frankly, to keep my interest. As a woman of a certain age, the New Adult sub-genre doesn't always work for me. But what I found was a smart, quirky, wide open young woman, one that is pretty near impossible to dislike. What you see is what you get with Simone, which is true of the whole gaggle of sisters that Mama Kerri raised. She speaks her mind, she goes after what she wants, she just generally embraces life, with all of its ups and downs, with arms wide open. I am convinced that FBI Agent Jonah Fontaine had absolutely no clue what he was in for when he and Simone met. And, try as he might, there's just no resisting her, because the chemistry here is blazing.
Laughter, heartbreak, suspense, passion, and an abundance of love make up the landscape of WILD CHILD. These characters have by no means had an easy time of things, and there is plenty of action keeping things bumping right along, and all of this together make this one book that I'm really glad that I took a chance on. Audrey Carlan has done such a great job with this book that I can't wait for the rest of the sisters (did I mention that there are lots of them?) to get their stories, too. Grab this one and enjoy. ❤️
Couldn’t put it down
This book was absolutely amazing!!! I started it on a Saturday night and finished it the following day. The story pulled at my heart strings throughout. I felt for each one of these characters in different ways. It broke my heart when Tabitha made a selfless decision but I loved her so much for it. I can’t wait to read more about the sisters and what their futures hold.
WHAT A WILD RIDE!
WHAT A WILD RIDE! This was my first read from Audrey and I really didn’t know what to expect but the suspense and guessing from this book kept me so enthralled that I am so excited for the next installment in this series and read this book so quickly! Simone grew up in a foster home full of other girls where they banded together as a family with the woman who raised them all. On the way home after a horrible day where she quit her job, she gets pulled over by a FBI agent Jonah and it turns out someone was hiding in the trunk of her car and after shooting at them he gets away. It turns out that the shooter is actually a notorious serial killer that the FBI has been hunting down. The initial chemistry and attraction between Jonah and Simone continues throughout the storyline and they decide to take the chance of following their feelings, but with a serial killer on the loose it gets personal quickly. After multiple bodies close to both Simone and Jonah taunting them and straining their budding relationship and a kidnapping on top of it all, it ends somewhat abruptly although full circle. This was a wild ride of a book and I can’t wait for the next installment to see how things are going for Simone’s sister as a survivor.
