Book Description

Each book in the Clover Park Series can be read as a stand-alone novel, or for more fun read them in order. Characters you’ve loved from past books frequently pop up in other books.

Unleash the wild woman…?

Ex-cop Ryan O'Hare takes one look at buttoned-up control freak Liz Garner and just itches to loosen the woman up. Not that he’s into her. Because a woman like that comes with way too many expectations. Not to mention, she practically works for him, and he didn’t hire Liz to watch after his beloved Harley-stealing Gran so he could turn Liz loose in his bed. Still, there’s something about her, a hidden wild side, that makes him wonder what it would take.

Liz must be crazy to work for the insensitive, arrogant, horribly…hot man she's avoided for years. Unfortunately, she needs the money and Ryan's grandmother needs a keeper. (Midnight tango lessons and ziplines with Gran, anyone?) Ryan's rare smile and swaggering confidence have Liz torn between throwing her favorite pinot grigio at his head or throwing herself at him. Can this control freak find a way to let loose with the tough, no-strings guy who once broke her heart?

The Clover Park Series
Book 1: The Opposite of Wild
Book 2: Daisy Does It All

About the Author

Kylie Gilmore was lucky enough to discover romance novels at a young age as they were strewn all over the house (thanks, Mom!). She writes quirky, tender romance with a solid dose of humor. Her Clover Park series features the O'Hare brothers, three guys you'd definitely have a drink with and maybe a little more.

Kylie lives in New York with her family, two cats, and a nutso dog. When she's not writing, wrangling kids, or dutifully taking notes at writing conferences, you can find her flexing her muscles all the way to the high cabinet for her secret chocolate stash.

5.0 out of 5 stars Humor, romance in a beautiful story... July 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
So... I tried to think how to start this review, but even if we have Ryan in the first scene, what I really liked in the first place and made me extremely curious was Ryan's Grandma, she's a 'little' old, but don't let her hear you saying it, she'll kill you! I'm joking, people! Ryan's Gran or Maggie is a really interesting character- seriously she was like the cherry on top of the wedding cake, but let's not going there ... yet!
The story presents Ryan, ex-cop, now private investigator who works for rich woman and cheating husbands, well not exactly for the cheating spouses, but you got my drift, so on day he's receiving an call from his brother, Travis about Gran and how she was stealing his beloved Harvey and now, because life's a bitch, she's implicated in an accident,but after the other accident (yes, yes, another one), an accident that changed her life and the manner she's living it. Now, she wants to live and be happy, but her happiness is not like her grandson imagine it. Now, he needs someone to look after his beloved Gran, someone like...

....Liz- she's 'uptight', a control freak, a good girl, a buttoned-up kind of woman, with dreams of a loving husband, children and living the' happily ever after'. Well, Ryan is not a boyfriend material and of course, he doesn't want to be a husband or a father- but in his defense, he has his personal demons to battle, issues about his father- and Liz knows that, well almost all that. Let's not forget this little fact about how he needs a keeper for his Gran.

5.0 out of 5 stars I thoroughly enjoyed all three books in this series August 26, 2014
By Kathy
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I thoroughly enjoyed all three books in this series. The characters are real people, not billionaires, broken or whatever. They have situations they have to work through, but there is no major drama and there is a lot of humor throughout the book. Although I liked this book, I think my favorite of the series was Daisy Does It All. Buy all three, you won't be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swooning for opposites..... April 16, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
I received “The Opposite of Wild” as a free ARC from the author Kylie Gilmore, which in return I am to give an honest review.
Kylie Gilmore is an author that will forever be an author that I read every book she publishes. This book was amazing, hands down, no questions asked.
Ryan was drool worthy, and Liz at times made me want to scream. I feel that they balanced each other out nicely. There healthy banter was outstanding, and their chemistry was one that made me swoon.
After reading this book, it’s hard to believe that Kylie hasn’t written anything before. I recommend this book to everybody I speak to about books. Check it out!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars THE OPPOSITE OF WILD March 24, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
There was a major humiliation that happened 17 years ago between Liz Garner and Ryan O’Hare at the city pool where he was a life guard. This event was life altering for Liz who at the time was 13 years old, overweight, awkward, and shy.
To her he was the older 17 year old, handsome, trim, confident, and in control life guard she had crushed on. It was so humiliating she has done everything and anything to avoid any and all contact with Ryan since.
Since that time though she has done everything in her power also to change that girl that everyone saw, through dieting and exercising. Plus, she is now a respected teacher, does nothing in which anyone could talk badly about her at all.
Ryan looked at that day she calls one big “Humiliation” as life altering in that it made him want to protect and serve.
To be able to do whatever he could to help people and he always thought of Liz as the girl that helped him on his career path.
Yet, Liz wanted the white picketed fence, kids, and a husband with the no shedding dog. Whereas, Ryan wanted to find a good “lay” and move on no “strings attached.” She tries his way when meets his grandmother and becomes her keeper. But when things become confusing for them very quickly when lines become blurred. I love the characters, Molly, Ryan’s grandmother is a hoot! You will fall in love with this cast of crazy characters and their offbeat lives. I give this book 5 stars. Provide by netgalley.com. Find us on: www.1rad-readerreviews.com

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun to read March 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I couldn't put this book down. Once I started, I read it cover to cover, and enjoyed every moment. The characters are very real, complex, and multi-dimensional and the situations they get into very true to life. I can't wait for the next installment in this series. Wonderful first novel for this new author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Recommend this read February 2, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I loved this book! Right from the beginning I was drawn into the characters problems and lives. The issues keeping the heroine and hero apart seemed genuine and demonstrated how people can experience the same event quite differently. The book was well-written and engaging. As a reviewer, I rarely give five stars, but this book is getting them. Highly recommended!

I'm looking forward to the next in this series.
