The Wilde brothers are addicted to the rush of adventure. But one of them is about to discover that it’s sink or swim, when passion and politics collide…
Whitewater rafting guide Sawyer Wilde has taken his share of inexperienced adventure seekers through the rapids of Idaho’s Salmon River, so his next group should pose no problems—even if it includes a presidential hopeful and his sexy, outspoken aide. After all, it’s just a campaign photo-op for the congressman. Until a series of minor mishaps takes a sinister turn…
Devin Lockhart has one job on the rafting trip: to make her boss look both presidential and relatable. And no matter how distractingly attractive their guide is, she plans to do it well. But as danger stalks them through every bend in the river, Devin must put her life—and the congressman’s—in Sawyer’s capable hands. Because surviving the trip is only the beginning of a deadly ride…
Wilde Ride is the second book in the Born to be Wilde series penned by Jannine Gallant. This book is 250 pages long, with developed characters. Though the story started out interesting, then somewhere between Devin and Sawyer meeting is when I notice that I was skimming the remaining pages.
However, if you like realistic characters and love adventure stories, then you might want to check this one out. Otherwise, this story just wasn’t my cup of tea.
The Wilde brothers have one thing in common—a thirst for adventure. But Griff Wilde is about to be taken on the ride of his life . . .
When Griff Wilde receives a letter from a dead man sending him on a race to find a mysterious treasure, he’s not worried about the competition. After all, salvaging sunken treasure is what he was born to do. But the riddles leading to the clues are a little trickier than he anticipated . . .
Ainslee Fontaine is ready for a change. A cross-country scavenger hunt sounds like a piece of cake after teaching in New York City. How hard could it be? For starters, travelling alone seems to have its hidden dangers, like real-life treasure hunters who ignite her deepest passions. But there’s still a hidden prize to find—unless someone stops them by any means necessary . . .
If you know a lot about American History than this book would be right up your alley. Griff Wilde coming off a successfully salvaging was intrigued by a letter he received from an old man “If you are reading this letter, that means that I am dead.” Since salvaging treasure is pretty much his forte, he didn’t worry too much about the competition. However, he underestimated one person. Ainsliee Fontaine, she loves being a teacher but it was time for a change.
When receiving a letter with clues to a priceless treasure…Ainslee was all for it, solving the first clue was pretty simple. But when someone starts targeting the scavenger hunters the game stops being fun. The race is on to see if they would find the treasure before they become the next victim.
Only saving point in this book was solving the clues and the little adventure that lead to the next. Again if you enjoy American History or just want an easy read to unwind from your hectic day, then this book would be for you.

Publication Date: September 27, 2016
Characters: Griff, Ainslee
Tough as nails, no nonsense San Francisco reporter Grace Hanover will do anything to cover the story of the decade—and her career. Having survived a painful past, she’s learned never to let anything stand in her way. Even if it means following a key witness into the Alaskan wilderness, and partnering with Travis Barnett, a former Navy SEAL turned PI who’s working for the Feds, and who would love to bring in Grace’s witness before she can get her story. But together in the wilderness, they’ll each have to put aside their differences and trust one another if they want to survive.
My Take: This was the second book in the Watching Now. Since I never read the first book, I was going blind into the series. I didn’t feel that I was missing anything major plot points, so this could be read as a stand-alone. Every Step She Takes is filled with romance, suspense, and adventure. The chemistry was well written and the mystery was great. What I really found interesting was that even though Grace was the one hesitant about having a committed relationship it was Travis who was persistent and was willing to fight for what he wanted. Majority of the books I have read it has always been the women who had to fight for the relationship so in my opinion it was interesting to see a man on the revers end.
