Review: The Opposite of Wild (Clover Park #1) by Kylie Gilmore

Image & description from

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?

My Thoughts:
There were some great "LOL" moments in this book!  Maggie a.k.a. Gran was hilarious.  She was just what uptight Liz needed to get out of her comfort zone.  Gran's new adventurous outlook on life has her grandsons all in a tizzy, especially Ryan.  He hires Liz to watch out for Gran and to talk her out of her crazy shenanigans.  Ryan & Liz are thrown into chaos when an unexpected visit from Liz's sister effects both their families.  Both Liz & Ryan have let things from their past mold them as adults.   They help each other deal with those issues all the while trying to keep up with Gran.  This was a great start to a series I know I'm going to really enjoy.  The characters are funny & endearing.  

Recommended for 17 & up.  Mild language & moderate sexual content.
