Book Review: Wild for You by Sophia Knightly

Release Date: November 7th 2011

Age: Adult
To Love, Honor, and Protect

Detective Clay Blackthorne has his hands full when he promises to safeguard an old college pal’s sister without letting her know what he’s up to. He never imagines that lively Marisol Calderon will knock his socks off and put a ring on his finger—and all at his suggestion! Their marriage of convenience is meant to protect her and Clay doesn’t plan on being hitched for long to the tempting beauty. But the honeymoon sure feels real to him…
Sassy Marisol is used to doing whatever she wants—and right now her plan is to shake up the hot detective’s hard-edged demeanor. But the fun turns to danger when a mystery stalker bent on marrying her marks her as his prey. Temporarily becoming Clay’s wife seems like a practical way to thwart the stalker. But as passion ignites and Marisol falls for the tender heart buried beneath the tough detective’s chest, Clay’s true identity is revealed and she begins to wonder who—if anyone—she can trust…
I downloaded Wild for You free for Kindle a few days ago (I think it's still free), and was surprised by this nice story.

Marisol is an independent woman who owns a beauty salon and loves it. Her life is good except for the mystery stalker who is getting more insistent. Her brother is worried about her, and asks his friend Clay Blackthorne to protect her for a while.

Clay isn't ready to be attracted to his best friend little sister. And he obviously isn't in his right mind when he decided they should get married to protect her, specially after his first marriage was such a failure. But he wants her to be safe, and better if he can do it while sharing a few hot nights together!

I liked Clay and Marisol. Their romance wasn't forced, but I think Marisol was too trusting with Clay, specially having a stalker after her. The mystery was a little bit overdone, the kidnapping made my eyes roll and it was kind of obvious who was responsible, but in the end it was a very nice romance, perfect to read in just one night.
