Instant Temptation (Wilder #3)
T.J. Wilder is the perfect package of breathtaking adventure and raw sex appeal. Even better, he's about to reconnect with the one woman he's never been able to forget...
Get Your Pulse Racing
To Harley, the landscape around Wishful, California, is exhilarating, untamed, and more than a little dangerous. The same could be said for T.J. Wilder, who's invited himself along o...more
“Don’t get between me and my sugar, TJ It won’t end well for you.”
Instant Temptation is the last book in the Wilder series and I am sad to see it go. I would have loved to have a book or two more. I know there is no more Wilder brothers but I wouldn't mind having a follow up novella or something. This book is about the oldest Wilder brother TJ finding love. I really enjoyed TJ and Harley's story.

I liked this better than Instant Gratification, but Instant Attraction is still my favorite of the Wilder series. I loved sexy as sin, alpha mountain god TJ, especially when he revealed his tender, vulnerable side, but tomboy Harley's insecure, scared of getting hurt routine was a bit annoying at times. TJ and Harley have explosive sexual chemistry and an obviously deep emotional connection (even if it takes them a while to admit it), and the romance in this is fun ...more
T.J. Wilder lives in Wishful, California & owns Wilder Adventures with his two brothers Cam & Stone. He is a professional guide that leads many outdoor treks. He is the only one in his family still single. He has always had a thing for a girl he went to school with named Harley.
All of these years Harley has also had feelings for T.J. He is the one guy she has never been able to get over. Harley ends up going on a trek with T.J. as his assistant & things quickly heat up bet ...more
There is a weak suspense plot involving illegal hunting that kind of falls flat. I thought there was going to be some big re ...more
That was my reaction when I finished this. I think I could understand what my GR acquaintance, Jess meant when she said in her review that this book gave great foreplay. Because it basically was that ... a great, smoldering, sensual, FOREPLAY before we reached the main course.
What I truly loved about this one was how 'focused' it was on the relationship-built. Sure, the first half or so the story practically happened in short time span ... but because TJ and Harley went off to Desolatio ...more
I really like Shalvis's writing. She seamlessly blends humour, very steamy romance and a touch of adventure set against a stunningly vivid backdrop. Her prose is smooth, effortless and above all, entertaining and enjoyable. ...more
D’aww. What a super cute read.
This is a character driven story and I liked that. There were a few plot points here and there, one of which could be considered weak. (view spoiler)[I’m looking at you illegal hunting storyline. (hide spoiler)] However, it didn’t take away from the enjoyment of the story.
Harley did get on my nerves initially with her indecision and her need to push TJ away. It was obvious to both of them how much she wanted him. A sentiment he reciprocated. However, I re ...more
Instant Tempation was my first Jill Shalvis book and I think she writes in a very entertaining, easy to read way. I haven't read the first two books in Ms. Shalvis's Temptation series but this book is defin ...more
I really like the Wilder guys and if the story was still fluffy and sexy with funny dialogs some parts were less interesting than others and some were no more fluffy but plain sugary. Also, the outline of the 3 books was pretty much the same which killed part of the pleasure.
Of the three brothers, TJ is my favorite. They're all tough, rugged, handsome, and totally badass, but TJ is just over the top smokin hot. He makes sullen look super sexy.
TJ seems to be the most introverted of the Wilder brothers, but at the same time seems to be the most forth right with his feelings for the girl. While, he may not be up front and extremely open about his feelings ver ...more
All good things must come to an end and that's what INSTANT TEMPTATION is to the Wilder series. But Jill Shalvis saved the best for last!
T.J. is the Wilder bother that stays gone for long periods of time taking clients on weeks to month-long treks into the mountains. He uses these trips to feel free and to avoid one spunky blonde tow truck driver that gets his motor running.
Harley is said tow truck drive and she has her hands full taking care of her hippie p ...more
TJ & Harley have a history- unfortunately, he doesn't remember it. In fact, he has no clue why she has always gotten so prickly around him. He's just always thought that she flat-out doesn't like him when, in fact, the problem is quite the opposite.
TJ's the oldest of the 3 Wilder boys. He's always been attracted to Harley, but never thought that the feelings might be returned until they are thrown together where little clues start ...more
The blurb of this book is totally incorrect, as it left me thinking Harley and TJ had a past history that TJ never could forget (view spoiler)[ while in fact he immediately forgot all of what happened while he had been really drunk, at the great dismay of Harley (hide spoiler)].
This whole series is very pleasant to read, but does not ...more
In the previous books TJ seems the least likely to fall in love. He's aloof and detached, though he obviously cares about his family. I was surprised then that he was the one who was willing to think about more than a casual relationship.
Harley's reasons for not wanting to pursue a relationship with TJ were sound, but they seemed to go on jus ...more
I still loved TJ and Harley here, and I loved that they had such an interesting backstory, but the plot of the book simply didn't work for me. Part of it felt really contriv ...more
I was looking forward to TJ and Harley's story, but I must admit I was a little disappointed. TJ is just as I imagined him--hot, sexy, organized, athletic, and intensely devoted to his family. And he and Harley's bickering and sniping in previous books obviously covered up for their attraction to each other. But Harley was not the woman I expected her to be. Rather than strong and independent, she seemed indecisive and gave off a lot of mixed signals. The story she told a ...more
Also, this is a long time unrequited love story done right. The heroine was not a pathetic lapdog for the hero as were some of the women in other books with this trope I've read recently. I like the whole Wilder family and the secondary storylines were all fun to follow throughout the series. In ...more

The hero T.J. Wilder is a roughened outdoorsman with hot motorcycle and a sense of humor, a protective streak and the happy hands of a horny teenager . His green eyes are striking, causing you to melt into yourself and those six buddies he calls abs goes everywhere he does. All that is channeled into the Big Bad Wolf and T.J. turned out to be the cause of some of my wildest dreams! Let’s not forget the raw sex appeal that simply oozes from his pores. The guy is one sexy ...more
I clearly am a sick, mean soul because I like a hero who is an eligible bachelor that all the woman want/chase, that guy who seems to be unattainable but then we figure out that he has an attachment problem where he feels like a ...more

Harley is one of those characters I could see myself being friends with if she existed in RL. She's easy to get to know and like. She does have some blind spots when it comes to her family. Her parents are good parents, they love their ...more
