I Give Get Wilde by Shelly Alexander five stars. This is book three of the Checkmate Inc. Series. This can be read as a standalone but the first two books are such a great ready I would suggest reading those two first. This book was very well written and was a very quick read. This book was fun, flirty and dirty and was written in the males point of view. Like all of Shelly’s other books I had a very hard time putting it down. This book did not have any violence and there was some sexual content but the scenes are done tastefully. Ethan Wilde was on the road to the big leagues when an injury ended his career before it got started. Not only did that dream die but his fiancée dumped him before he could blink. Instead of giving up he worked his ass off to finish college and then opened up his own gym in the heart of Manhattan which thrived and continued to grow. A Pound of Flesh Fitness gym is now Ethan’s new dream and his goal is to take the gym nationwide that is until he meets a fiery redhead named Adeline. Adeline is Ethan’s competition, his enemy in business, and has a personality that matches her red hair. Adeline has gotten under Ethan’s skin and he wants to figure out a way to get her out of there but there is one detail he can’t stop thinking about and that is if she is a true redhead or not. This book will make you laugh out loud and at the same time it will make you fall in love with the characters. I Really loved this book and I highly recommend it!
Ethan Wilde is a man who had to reinvent himself after he blew out his arm and his hopes for landing in the majors in baseball. He was doing well in college, and instead of stopping, he completed his degree and used his business education along with his love of sports and training and opened a fitness center that is now four centers. But the day his baseball career came to a halt, so did his relationship with his fiancée when she dumped him. So for the past seven years, he has been a one and done with a woman. He’ll make the night count, but then it is over.
“I’m a confirmed bachelor, and the successful owner of a small chain of gyms called A Pound of Flesh Fitness. Four locations in Manhattan and counting.”
Adeline McAllister was destined for Olympic God as a gymnast. She was considered America’s sweetheart, but one wrong landing shattered her ankle and her future. Now she has a yoga studio and trying to survive after her boyfriend wiped out her account and left the country.
“Flaming red hair. Fierce green eyes. Fiery tongue.”
The plot will have Ethan training a team for a Weekend Warrior Challenge that has been heavily advertised, with sponsors, reality television, and offering one million dollars to the winning coach. When the other team's coach is in an accident, the promoters approach Adeline to coach the other team. Getting Adeline geared up to coach will be a two-day marathon before introducing her to her team, but getting everyone on that team on board will not be a cakewalk.
The sexual chemistry between Ethan and Adeline can’t be denied, and when these two get together, they sizzle. Ethan will tell her about his one night only rule, and she will accept that. But is one night enough? What happens after one night when she isn’t out of his system?
“We only have one night, Ethan. I want every minute to count.”
The training between the teams will hit a snag when there are AC problems at the gym and Adeline suggest going to a park and using playground equipment. She proves that they can still get a great workout, but some team members cause problems. Can this be resolved or will they need to a new coach? The story is a journey of learning more about each other and how they deal with life and the obstacles thrown at you. Ethan and Adeline learn from each other while helping their teams succeed in the Weekend Warrior. In the end, there is much to be gained by both of them.
Ethan and Adeline have both experienced tragic career changes. One minute they had a promising career in their sport and the next minute that dream was crushed. Also, they both have had relationship troubles.
I loved how Ethan and Adeline met and got to know each other. The banter and chemistry between Ethan and Adeline is off the charts. They end up in a competition against each other. The winner walks away with a large sum of money. Adeline can use this to help with her business troubles. Ethan can use this money to expand his business. How will this effect this attraction between them? Will they discover that taking a chance on love is more important than money?
Oh my goodness despite neither one wanting a relationship they cannot keep their hands off of each other. Fun, hot, and heartwarming romance with some complicated situations. A must read!
FYI, includes mature content. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
