Book Description

The Devil Wears Prada meets Man vs Wild in this fast-paced romantic comedy set in the no-holds-barred world of travel journalism.

When Ella Jameson steps into a room, people scramble to attention. She’s ruthless, terrifying, and untouchable — and very, very successful as Editor-in-Chief of Australia’s top travel magazine.

Then Ryan Edwards, adventure traveller, walks into her office with an unexpected job proposal, and Ella just knows he’s going to be trouble. As far as she’s concerned, the man’s a self-indulgent, kamikaze, adrenaline-junkie with an authority complex — and he’s also infuriatingly sexy! The idea of them working together is ludicrous, but the opportunity to co-host a new travel show is just too good to refuse.

As she is swept from her world of inner-city glamour into a nightmare of camping, crocodiles, and outback adventures, Ella’s feelings for Ryan begin to heat up, and her walls start to come down. In the tropical beauty of Australia’s Top End, it’s not just the weather that’s going to sizzle...

Praise for GETTING WILD:

'This was such a sweet and endearing read, yet so engaging you don’t want to put it down.' — The Book Reading Gals

'The voice and life of the characters are defined very early, so I just sat back to enjoy the very fun ride through the Australian Outback!' — Must Read Books or Die

4.0 out of 5 stars Our thoughts from MustReadBooksOrDie! March 23, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I reviewed this at MustReadBooksOrDie with my friend Shelley!

Shel: This is another great find through Net Galley. Getting Wild is full of fun; it actually kind of reminds me of an Australian version of Kristen Ashley...there's a very sassy Ella and a very smirky, take no crap Ryan...and lots of sparks between the two. Court: Yeah. *Happy sigh* The voice and life of the characters are defined very early, so I just sat back to enjoy the very fun ride through the Australian Outback!

Shel: I loved Ella's strength and her stubbornness and her success and her ability to maintain her composure. She was so fierce and fun to read. She made the perfect protagonist to Ryan's alpha male, fun loving, adventurous spirit. Their fire and ice personalities came together to make some steamy scenes...when they weren't giving each other s*** for one reason or another. I loved Ryan's persistence in his pursuit of Ella and I loved Ella's resistance and her begrudging acceptance...they made me smile a lot while reading.

Court: I think for some people Ella could be very off putting. She is everything that Shelley said, but when it says in the blurb "The Devil Wears Prada" meets...it means it. Everything that is ice, ice cold about Ella is hard to enjoy...until we start to find out why. And the ice around her heart...and vagina started to thaw...and the story truly is a lot of fun and shenanigans. Ryan was an amazing character...and crikey...I loved him. (That was too much wasn't it? Australian fail.)

Shel: The one thing I found interesting..not bad or good..just interesting was the shift in the viewpoint about 60% in. The novel was told mostly through Ella's POV but Ryan (and others) would subtly have their voice added to the telling of the story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just what I love in a book January 11, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
From the first page I was hooked on this fast paced story.
I love a heroine with a large dose of sass and attitude, especially when it's aimed a gorgeous hunk who is her absolute opposite.
Without putting up any spoilers I want to say that I read this in one sitting, I just couldn't put it down.
The only thing I can complain about is that it finished at all!
I want more from this author, a lot more.
She is now at the top of my "waiting for more from them' pile.
Good for you Sarah Barrie. Worth every star!

Title: Getting Wild

Series: N/A

Author: Sarah Barrie

Genre: Romance/Women's Fiction

Blurb: When Ella Jameson steps into a room, people scramble to attention. She's ruthless, terrifying, and untouchable -- and very, very successful as Editor-in-Chief of Australia's top travel magazine.

Then Ryan Edwards, adventure traveller, walks into her office with an unexpected job proposal, and Ella just knows he's going to be trouble. As far as she's concerned, the man's a self-indulgent, kamikaze, adrenaline-junkie with an authority complex -- and he's also infuriatingly sexy! The idea of them working together is ludicrous, but the opportunity to co-host a new travel show is just too good to refuse.

As she is swept from her world of inner-city glamour into a nightmare of camping, crocodiles, and outback adventures, Ella's feelings for Ryan begin to heat up, and her walls start to come down. In the tropical beauty of Australia's Top End, it's not just the weather that's going to sizzle...

Thoughts: Getting Wild is a sweet romantic story with a bit of adventure thrown in. If you're looking for an in-depth, complex storyline, it might not be quite up your alley. The book is far more focused on the characters and their interactions with each other. Is that a problem in this case? For me, it was a resounding 'No'! It worked perfectly when it came to this book. It was all about the characters. And with two such likeable ones, it was a hard book to put down.

Ella seems to have it all - she's a successful business woman, very cool and collected, never lets anything ruffle her feathers. Except for Ryan - from the word go, he gets under her skin and she can't seem to shake him from her thoughts.
