Review

"This book is everything a reader hopes for. Funny. Hot. Sweet."--New York Times Bestselling Author, Mimi Jean Pamfiloff  

"It's intriguing and complex while still being light hearted and truly romantic. To see a male so twisted and turned is unusual but honestly made the book all the more enjoyable."--Harlequin Junkie

"I loved this first book in Kylie Gilmore's Clover Park series--it was the first I've read by her, but I was connected to and immersed in her writing immediately."--The Revolving Bookcase
"There is a real sense of humour in Kylie Gilmore's debut, and it was a bunch of fun to read." --My Written Romance

"If you enjoy stories based in small towns, with a sweet HEA based on childhood crushes coming true in adulthood - than this should be right up your alley!"--Snarky Mom Reads

"Ms. Gilmore's writing style draws the reader in and does not let go until the very end of the story and leaves you wanting more."--Romance Bookworm

"Every aspect of this novel touched me and left me unable to put it down. I pulled an all-nighter, staying up until after 3 am to get to the last page."--Luv Books Galore

"The Opposite of Wild drew me in, held me down and made me laugh!"--Storm Goddess Book Reviews

"A fun, light-hearted read, filled with small town familiarity, some very relatable OCD, and some sweet romance."--My Favorite Things

"The Opposite of Wild is a funny, romantic and touching tale about love, friendship, and family."--The Book Freak

"I will definitely keep my eye out for more Clover Park stories from Kylie Gilmore. She's an author to watch because she writes a story full of humor and great secondary characters that bring out that feeling of family that we all know well."--For the Love of Bookends

I really enjoyed this one. The romance is engaging and the antics of the secondary characters had me laughing out loud. Well written and easy to read, you can't miss with The Opposite of Wild. Highly recommended.

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.

I received this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.

My Thoughts: This was an OK read for me. I really thought I was going to love this book.

The Heroine: She was really annoying. She has always pined away for the hero, but never pursued him. When he shows an interest in her, she takes on the guy's part. She uses him for sex only. She was convinced that he could never change his playboy ways. He should have had more self respect for himself and dumped her.

The Hero: He has known the heroine since childhood. He never knew she had feelings for him. He had a difficult childhood raising his siblings after his mother's suicide and his father's desertion. I think that is why he never committed to a relationship before the heroine. At first, he is shocked that he is attracted to her. They date and eventually he gets tired of the way she treats him. I generally liked his character. Whereas, the heroine annoyed me many times.

The Story: Liz Garner (the heroine) is at home when her sister suddenly shows up. Daisy is pregnant and Liz offers to help with the baby. She realizes she need a summer job until school starts back up in the fall. Liz is an elementary school teacher. She sees an ad in the paper for an elder care giver. She calls the number and is shocked that it is Ryan O'Hare's number. She has always pined over him, but knew he would never go for someone like her.

Ryan calls back and hires her. She goes to his grandmother's house and realizes Ryan never told her. Eventually, Ryan's grandmother accepts her. They strike up a friendship.

The rest of the book deals with Ryan and Liz's eventual HEA.

I wanted to give one star, but I actually finished the book so for that, I gave it two.

The heroine has three strikes from the very beginning of the book. The fact that Liz harbors such intense animosity about a person she hardly knows, Ryan, because of incident that happened 17 years ago when she was an overweight 13 year old at the pool, gazing up at his eyes as he sits in the lifeguard stand. The second strike came when her older sister, Daisy, tells Liz that she's pregnant, and Liz completely takes over and decides she has to raise the baby because her sister is incompetent. Third strike was when Daisy told Liz she needed to pay off $10k of credit card debt, and Liz agrees without batting an eye because "it's what's best for the baby" and immediately takes a second job working for Ryan so she can afford to bail her sister out. Who in their right, sane mind takes a second job to pay off an irresponsible sibling's debt? This chick desperately needs to make an appointment with a therapist, or simply pick up a copy of the book "Boundaries." No, no, no. This is not noble, this is stupid. Although she racked up three strikes for herself in the first couple of chapters, I kept reading because of the character of Maggie. I have no idea why Ryan was interested in Liz; she was so incredibly unlovable. Part of me also kept reading to see if Liz changed, if the pendulum swung just as far the other way. I saw a little of myself in her; I'm the oldest of four kids with uninvolved parents, so I could relate to wanting to swoop in and help. But why did Liz and Daisy's parents have zero role in this situation, other than running a local fast food joint and letting the girls pick up shifts? And her mom flying out (to Arizona?) to visit when the baby was born.

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.
