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

I’m going to start this review by being blunt, if you are a Robin Kaye fan and you are up to date with her books, read this review and then RUN to your favorite online bookseller and download this one immediately. If you are not up to date, get up to date…then repeat the steps above. If you have not read Robin Kaye, what are you waiting for? Go immediately to your online bookseller and download everything she’s written. Start with Romeo, Romeo and progres
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
Review to come shortly. I think my enjoyment of this novel might've been shortchanged by the fact I'm reading it as a standalone versus not reading the first in this series. Still, it's very possible that this could be read as a single story and enjoyed for that. For me, I'll admit I liked parts of this romance, while others left me struggling through it a little more than I would've liked. I'll probably put it at 3 stars in my final rating, but need to meditate on my thoughts about it a little ...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 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

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

The beginning chunk and the second half of this book were good but the large section where we have to deal with a Jessie thinking that she can just up and write a romance novel to make money quick and her repeated conversations about not believing in love were annoying and not enjoyable at all. So 2 stars is the average of the good parts (3 stars) and the bad parts (1 star.)

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.

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.

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.

Jessie has just lost her job – via electronic pink slip from her newspaper – and her best friend, Andrew, talks her into borrowing his house in Idaho where she can have some peace and quiet to finally work on tha

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

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.

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

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.

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

Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

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.
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

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
