What a fun book and the hero Fisher was a total package, he could cook, clean, is a doctor and caring as hell and falls like a ton of bricks for Jessie.

Jessica is a sports reporter for the Times, having the time of her life, she has a job she loves and just bought a place when she gets the pink slip and on a dare from her best friend Andrew goes to Boise and starts writing a book. She thinks writing a romance novel will be a breeze which is kind of hilarious, she doesn't believe in romantic lov...more

Okay, seriously the best book that I've read all year. Also the best book that Robin Kaye has written to date, and I've been a fan of hers since the start. This will be the one book of 2012 that I will be pressuring everyone to read. I literally could not put this book down. The only times that I did put it down was to work for a few hours and to see Magic Mike. (Putting this book down only to watch nekkid men on the big screen is acceptable, right?)I also love how there is a little bit of a cli...more

Robyn Kaye first captured my attention with Romeo,Romeo and with each book in the series she has continued to earn my adoration.
I love her style of writing and I absolutely love this series. Each book just keeps getting better and I don't want to see this series end. I cannot wait for Trapper's and Karma's books and I hope that there will be more after that.(*hinthint*/*winkwink*)
I have been waiting for Fisher's book since reading about him in Yours For The Taking and I was not disappointed. I...more

Well… sejak membaca serial Domestic God yang sudah pernah saya review sebelumnya, saya jadi fans-nyaRobin Kaye. Not mention that she continue this series with Wild Thing series. Di serial Wil Thing kita akan bertemu dengan sepupu-sepupu Ben yang memiliki nama aneh: Trapper, Hunter, Fisher dan Karma. Sayangnya saya masih menemukan buku #2 dari serial Wild Thing ini terlebih dahulu. Jadinya saya “berkenalan” dengan Fisher Kincaid, salah satu dari sepupu kembar Ben. Kembarannya, Hunter Kincaid dice...more

I just loved this book. I just found everything about this book to be perfect. I have never read a Robin Kaye book before but you can bet I am going to backtrack and pick some up (especially the first in this series “Wild Thing”).

Kaye has written the perfect man in Fisher. He is a smart, sexy, strong, sympathetic, understanding man (and he cooks and cleans). I found myself falling for his character almost immediately. He feels a little out of sorts since...more

Call me wild! Well call me a FAN! Loved this book by Robin Kaye.

Fisher is an Orthopedic surgeon, who is a health nut, Loves to cook, considers cleaning therapeutic, a little OCD and knits. Enough said!

Our girl Jessie is a sports writer, who has just been laid off; She moves to Boise, Idaho and decides to try her hand at writing a romance novel for some fast cash, how hard can it be right? She is a writer after all. Oh and did I mention she doesn’t belie...more

Didn't thoroughly get into this story as much as the previous Robin Kaye book I'd read. Jessie's issues & personality just didn't really resonate with me at all. Did NOT like that Jessie's personal issues were not really resolved, though they were discussed between Jessie & her bestie. She never even told her boyfriend what her issue was, and it was never dealt with in a good way. I did NOT like how these issues weren't dealt with, and yet the book was wrapped up with an "oh, we just can...more

This was my first Robin Kaye book and unfortunately #2 in a series. Maybe if I had started with book 1 I would have had a better read.

I found this to be dull and boring. I had no connection with the characters. I did not find Fisher to be anywhere near an alpha male. Instead of going after Jessie, who he is madly in love with, he sits in his home letting it get messy, drinking and knitting-WTF???!! Fisher is a little girl. His meddling family is OTT, not cute and definitely not funny. Fisher is...more

Sports reporter Jesse James gets the pink slip by email late at night, after having interviewed a sports team. Without a pay check, she certainly can’t afford her nice New York apartment. Her best friend has the solution though. He is living in LA at the moment but he still has a house in Boise, Idaho. She can live there rent-free and finally write the novel she was set on writing in college. Jesse thinks writing a steamy romance novel will be an easy sale, and so she sets out to become a best s...more

I have been a fan of Robin Kaye’s novels since her first novel. I love how quirky her characters are. They have substance and are very intelligent with just enough oddness that make them endearing. Her females tend to be not the greatest cooks but that is okay because her males are great cooks.

Call Me Wild is the second book in her new series. It had me roaring out loud and giggling quite often....more

I have “met” Fisher first time in Wild Thing (of the Wild Thing series/Wild Thing #1) and of course he did not leave me that much of an impression because it was not his story. In Call Me Wild, he just blew me away. Every time he smiles, I can feel the sunshine. Needless to say, this book is a joy to read from beginning to end. I have read most of Robin Kaye’s previous books and almost 90% in particular order of its publication too (What can I say? Lucky moi?). I started with Romeo, Romeo, follo...more

I found myself on the fence about many aspects of this book. I enjoyed much of it and the writing is clean and engaging. I do like Fisher, even if he comes across a little too perfect sometimes. What I really struggled with was I had a hard time liking the heroine. I found her to be too brusque and not overly believable in her conflict...so much of her "stuff" could've been solved with a simple conversation or asking a question. And being so hung up on one event from high school just didn't dig...more

Domestic Gods Series Book 6
Dr. Fisher Kincaid has been a bit off since his twin brother, Hunter, recently married. With his handsome surfer look of platinum hair and his green eyes added to his lovable personality Fisher never lacks for the attention of women. And then he meets her, Jessica. A woman who is more likely to run in the opposite direction to get away from him rather than to run to him.

**original review by Jamie posted at Romancing Rakes For The Love of Romance**

First, let me say I am a HUGE fan of Robin Kaye’s books. Second, I can’t help think of the Call Me Maybe song while I write this. If I was clever enough I would totally come up with some witty thing using the song lyric and the story. But I’m not that clever but I will say that it would totally work. Moving on.

Jessica James finds herself out of a job as a sports reporter in New York. However, the upside is that she can...more

While a good book, I kept comparing this to other Robin Kaye stories, and it just came up short. I love this series, I love her heroes, but this one felt a little off-tempo to me. A big problem I had came in the beginning when Kaye kept describing how small Boise, ID is. It's over two hundred thousand people. If you add in the surrounding communities, that number triples. I know there is artistic license in saying that Karma (sister of hero and bartender extraordinaire) knows everyone, but in a...more

Author Robin Kaye is a hit and miss author for me. While I loved some of her previous books, I also found myself not liking some of her other books. I think the biggest problem I have found with her writing is the balance. Sometimes her characters are too perfect or not believable enough. Then she will throw in the other main character that doesn't balance well with the the before mentioned one. It feels forced at times and they don't seem to compliment each other like they should.

Again, we have...more

After not liking the last book (Wild Thing) much, I was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed this one. I did have to suspend some disbelief- seriously, there is no man on earth as perfect as Fisher- but apart from that, I liked the way this relationship developed. If I had one complaint besides the too-perfect-hero, it would be the extreme overuse of hokey metaphores by this author. Really, it's like she made a bet with someone as to how many she could cram into the book. I noticed a little of it...more

It’s nice to be back with the Kincaid family again. I had a blast with them – brothers Hunter, Fisher, Trapper with sister Karma – in the first book in this series, Wild Thing. This time around it’s Fisher who runs smack into love, but it’s his heroine who has some problems for everyone.

Jessica James from herself in Boise after she receives a pink slip, via email, from her position as a sports writer for a New York newspaper. In Boise, she hopes to right a quickie romance novel to help tide her over financially until she can find another sportswriter position. What she finds is it's hard to write a romance novel without having the proper research aides...which comes in the form of hot stalker doctor Fisher Kincaid.

Jessica ( Jessie) James is living her dream as a sports reporter when she gets an electronic pink slip and ends up temporarily living in Boise, Idaho. Jessie has never been in love with anyone and doesn’t believe that she ever will be. She thinks love is really just lust that has turned into settling down.
Fisher Kincaid is a physician in Boise who meets Jessie in the local Starbucks. To say that he doesn’t make a good first impression is an understatement. Running into Jessie in local haunts doe...more

CALL ME WILD is a suitable title because this novel is wildly entertaining! The next installment in Robin Kaye's Wild Thing series is a winner!

Jessie James had everything she wanted as a sports reporter for the New York Times. Now that she's lost her job, she takes a big risk by moving to Bosie, Idaho to start a writing career as a romance author. Except the one thing she wants to write about is the one thing she doesn't believe in—love.

Bitten By Love Reviews
Love, how does one define its meaning? According to Wiki, Love is an emotion of a strong affection and personal attachment. Love is also a virtue representing all of human kindness, compassion, and affection. So how I interpret this, it’s the unselfish loyal and benevolent concern for the good of another. But what if there’s someone out there who doesn’t believe in love or the idea of being in love?

Jessie James was a successful sport reporter for the Times. Her love for sport and writing was wha...more

My Review:
I really like Robin Kaye's books.....hello, all her heroes love to cook and clean...and they're gorgeous and sexy. What's not to love??

In this book, the hero is Fisher (twin brother to Hunter which we met in Wild Thing). Fisher is a flirt who loves his coffee, health nut, orthopedic doctor, and neat freak. The first day Jessie is in Boise, they run into each other 3 times. Fisher is intrigued. Jessie thinks he's a stalker....albeit a good-looking one, but a stalker nonetheless.

First thoughts
So this was my first Robin Kaye book, but I heard nothing but great things so I decided to try my hand at her new novel call me wild.

My thoughts
Let me say for my first Robin Kaye book I was not let down. This was the perfect summer read to me. I fell in love with the characters, the setting, and the pace of the book. If you’re looking for a good contemporary romance than this is the book for you!

Jessie and Fisher are the perfect characters .Jessica is recently fired from her job as...more

Sportswriter Jessie James just got the pink slip from her dream job. Unable to support herself, she moves from New York to Idaho to stay in her best friend's house. Her plan is to write a formulatic romance and publish it quick while looking for another job and figuring out what she wants to do. But Jessie doesn't believe in love, so she finds Dr. Fisher Kincaid to be her "research" partner. The thing about romance is, the heart always gets involved. Now she needs to accept she may ha...more

I’ve only read one other book by Robin Kaye that I’m aware of and I liked it. I didn’t love it the way that a lot of my friends did but it was still an enjoyable read. The same can be said for this book. This book follows Jessie James as she travels to Boise, Idaho to get a book written after she loses her job in New York. Jessie was a sports writer for the Times and when she gets canned, her best friend offers her his house in Boise (rent free) if she writes the book that she’s been telling her...more

As soon as my review posts on PaperbackDolls, I'll post it here, too.

********************************************************************

I’m of two minds on this one. Part of me liked it, but the other part was annoyed as hell. Why? Because it read suspiciously like a series of commercial product placement ads rather than a contemporary romance.

The actual romance part was nice. The pop culture parts….not so much. I counted fifteen references to Starbucks, at least six to Lady Gaga, four to Alber...more

Jessica James just got fired from her job as a sports reporter. With no back-up plans in the works, Jessica decides to go on a short break to Idaho to write a romance novel. Since she is a professional writer, writing a novel about love should be a piece of cake…right? Wrong. Jessica doesn’t believe in happily ever after and when she meets Fisher Kincaid she gets a lesson in love.

Dr. Fisher Kincaid is more than willingly to step up and become Jessica’s guinea pig while she explores the dynamics...more
