I think there were actual hearts and flowers floating in a circle around my head the entire time I read this funny, sweet romance.
Jane Garcia’s world is all in order. She is working her way up the corporate ladder at the small accounting firm she has toiled at in San Francisco, her inherited house will be ready to host an airbnb guest in the front bedroom and her jeans are starched and pressed. But when she backs her minivan into “Creative Non-Fiction” writer Grant Whitman’s beat-up Land Rover, Jane’s world begins to unravel like one of Grant’s hand-knitted socks. When Grant’s grandfather, the Mr. Whitman of the Whitman Firm, fires Jane at the company BBQ, Grant is sent over to Jane’s house to smooth things over until Jane can be “unfired.” Next thing you know, Grant is living in the front bedroom instead of an airbnb guest and calm, unemotional Jane is a mess!
This is a great read! Talk about two opposites - Jane loves everything neat and tidy, including her emotions. Grant is known for hiking a camping alone for days on end as research for his popular books - unshaven, unshowered and uninhibited. Yet Jane and Grant were perfect for each other in every way; Grant softened Jane’s sharp angles and edges while Jane reminded Grant that his “poodle” beard occasionally needs a wash and trim! Somehow, someway, I knew these two would make it work! And no visit to Oakland Hills would be complete without seeing some of our favorites from the past, like Aunt Trixie and Zeus! As I said, this one in the series may be my fav!!!
My rating system: 5 stars is reserved for amazing life-changing literature; 4 stars means I really, really liked the book. As you can see, I really, really liked this book.
You really do not need to have read any other of the Oakland Hills series to enjoy this standalone romance, but if you have, then you'll be pleased to encounter some of your old friends in "Going Wild." Plus, just read them. They're all fantastic!
"Going Wild" is the story of Jane Garcia, a very put-together accountant, and Grant Whitman, brother of her boss and writer of wilderness non-fiction. Despite Jane being a responsible adult human, her life goes into a bit of a tailspin when the company's owner capriciously fires from her job through no fault of her own. While she and some of her supervisors work to get her reinstated, Grant steps in with a plan to temporarily alleviate both their problems: he can rent a room from her, get himself out of the uncomfortable situation of living with his judgmental grandfather while he tries to write his latest book, and help Jane out financially by paying rent while she gets her job situation squared away.
Of course, sparks fly, but Jane wants to keep things professional and not do anything that might jeopardize her reinstatement at the firm. As always, Galway does a beautiful job of making us experience Jane's and Grant's feelings by showing rather than telling, and her dry, sometimes dirty humor had me laughing out loud while I read.
I read "Going Wild" almost in one sitting. It was a very fun read: flowing smoothly, developing evenly, making me love her characters' strengths and weaknesses. READ IT!
