I’m not the kind of girl who expects happily ever after. In fact, I prefer my partners don’t get too clingy. Don’t get me wrong. I like a good night of loving, but beyond that, I’m happy to see them leave inthe morning, without my number.

Then I met him.

Quinn is a big bear of a man, with massive hands and amazing…staying power. Like all night long and the next morning kind of staying power. So when he asks me to spend the next day with him, I do. The only reason I give him my number is because he makes me laugh. And, okay, so I might have met up with him once or twice.

That doesn’t mean I need him. Because I am Everly Freaking Spencer, and I don’t need anyone (other than my bestie), and definitely not a man.

Only…

He shows up by chance at my store, which totally freaks me out. Finding out he’s my favorite author doesn’t help either.

And the surprise that’s dropped in our laps later that day?

Major. Freak. Out.

But, like I said, I don’t need anyone.

Right?

If I keep repeating that, I might just believe it.

Author warning: Get ready for a trip into the hippiest little town in Texas. There’s gossipy little old ladies (LOLs), an app that every teenager hates, trips to Denver and Cali, a woman who is convinced true love doesn’t exist, and  man who aims to prove her wrong by doing things to her that should embarrass the author. And she was. (Not really). Along the way readers get to spend time with the gorgeous Hawthorne brothers and gay ducks. SERIOUSLY. GAY. DUCKS. Just get the book already because you know you want to know about them. Also, there’s a happily ever after fit for a woman with commitment issues and man who just doesn’t know when to give up.

Are rules meant to be broken?
Quinn has found himself in a bit of a slump. Avoiding work is the last thing he should be doing when he reluctantly joins his brothers on a night out. For the moment he saw her, Quinn knew she was the one. He agreed to the rules she laid forth, knowing from the first spark she was the one.
Everly is a woman with sass, spunk and rules. No last name and only one night. Being burned again is not on her list of things to do. Relationships are something she just doesn’t believe in. Until on a let loose night she met the man who makes her want to break all the rules.
As a long time read of Ms.Schroeder, Wild Love is a showcase of what I love about her writing. A story with emotion and laughter, a family dynamic, well written and developed characters with love at its core. I loved Everly and Quinn from the moment they met. They were downright perfect for each other. Even though Everly was reluctant I love how she bent her own rules. Quinn played along knowing he was going to do everything in his power to change her mind. How they long for each other when they were apart and the intimacy, honesty and passion that they shared when they were together. Swoon! The setting Ms. Schroeder created in Wild One is one of my favorites and truly became a part of the story. Juniper Spring is a hippy little town where everyone knows everyone and everything that is going on with everyone. That app and the LOL’s are a hoot. It’s a fantastic small town setting. Burt and Ernie are hysterical. This is the perfect setting for small town romance. Wild Love is a new favorite for me.
