I received the book, Wilde Riders by Savannah Young, as one of the 23 books for winning the Tornado Giveaway. I would like to thank the author as well as the Book Club for organising the Giveaway as well as sending the book.
Old Town New Jersey, Haymakers, a bar, is owned by the Wildes and is now run by the eldest Wilde brother, Jake. The four brothers had a band together, Wilde Riders.
Now, the second Wilde, Cooper, 26, an Ivy League graduate, has moved to Manhattan, has a job on the Wall Street, drives a BMW 6 Series convertible and is on the way to make his first million before he turns thirty. He is not a country kid anymore and there is no way that he is going to be a Wilde Rider again. He has always been known as Jake’s younger brother. He is a numbers person, not sensitive to anyone’s feelings.
Riley Smith works for H & C Bank in Manhattan and hates men who are Wall Street wannabes. Her life is in Manhattan, rural New Jersey is not a part of her five year plan, nor is a boyfriend. Patti is her best and only friend.
Haymakers has run into financial troubles and Cooper has taken leave from his office to help his brother save the family business. Riley is sent by her bank to investigate the business loan give to them. She meets Cooper, who is distant and Jake, who is a ladies man. As she is leaving the bar, her car hits a truck being driven by none other than the third Cooper brother, Tucker. Cooper is instantly attracted to Riley and wants to protect her from his brothers. He does not want to know anything about him because he feels that she may get up and go.
There is Harley, his neighbor, who has had a crush on him since she was twelve, jealous of Riley and he is afraid, she might spill the beans and if she does, what will Riley do? And more importantly, what will happen to Cooper’s efforts of portraying a country boy image?
The story has been written from the point of view of both the characters, the name of the chapters being the character from whose point of view, the story is being told. The story is fast paced, and the characters relatable. The initial part of the story I more than three-fourths of the book long, set in Old Town over a span of three days and the latter half is set in New York.
Loved the book.
