GHBT- Wilde Riders by Savannah Young- Review

Book Info-
Title- Wilde Riders
Series- Old Town Country Romance Series Book #1
By- Savannah Young
Genre- Contemporary Romance


WILDE RIDERS is the first novel in a spicy new contemporary romance series about four sexy brothers, their small-town bar and their local country band. WILDE RIDERS can be read as a STAND ALONE NOVEL or as part of the SERIES.

Cooper Wilde spent his entire adolescence counting the days until he could escape rural northwest New Jersey. Now at 26, he can't believe he's coming back. But his late father's bar, Haymakers, is in financial trouble and his older brother, Jake, has asked for Cooper's help.

Riley Smith, 25, is fresh out of her Ivy League MBA program and wants to make an impression on her employer, H & C Bank. Her first solo assignment is a fraud investigation on a business loan they made to Haymakers.

Even though Old Town is less than 90 minutes from New York City, Riley feels like she's stepped into another world in this remote, one-bar town. Riley can't wait to do her business and get back to the city as quickly as her sports car will take her...until she meets Cooper Wilde. He's not like the other guys in this rural town and Riley feels inexplicably attracted to him.

If you like your trucks loud, your beer cold and your men hot...you'll love WILDE RIDERS.

Wilde Riders is the first book in a series of stand-alones, the Old Town Country Romance Series, by Savannah Young. The series is about the four Wilde brothers, who are all very sexy I will admit it, and this installment happens to be about Cooper, one of the cowboy young men who is disenchanted with country life. BUT when he meets Riley Smith, who is over the romance scene and ESPECIALLY over men on Wall Street, which happens to be where Cooper works, he decides it would be good to keep up the fa├žade of being a good ole southern boy.

I really enjoyed the twist on country romance. Usually this kind of story, to me, looks like a rehashing of city mouse meets country mouse and falls in love in spite of their differences, blah blah blah... That is not the case here. Riley and Cooper don't make eye contact and go all goo-goo over each other, they just have the ability to realize when they are attracted to someone. I LOVE that. I am so sick of insta-love stories I can't see straight...

I am surprised to say I really enjoyed this novel. It is not what I expected at all and that is a very, very good thing. This just proves to show you can NEVER judge a book without reading it first, because you really could be missing out on something amazing like this novel. It's not a western, but it is a little country, and that is ALWAYS okay with me.

My Rating:
