Shayne always does an excellent job and she didn't disappoint with these alpha males. My only complaint, which is why I would rate this book at 4.5 stars, is that the climax of the story wasn't as big of a buildup as I am used to with Shayne's books. I just wasn't on the edge of my seat, like I am used to, but it was still an excellent book!

Well, that was...climatic :)

This book started out as a rich girl running away from her life, and then, it turned into so much more.

Galina finds two amazing men who both love her (even with her hideous disguise).

Embrace the Wild takes place in the Rocky Mountains, where the supermodel in disguise goes to escape the control of her mother and a life she does not want. She finds not one but two hot men that are best friends that help her find a new life full of love. The writing style is great, the story line is wonderful, the characters are lovable to make this one of the best love stories I have read in a while and so easy to recommend to others.

Just read the updated version of this book and wow did the author improve the story by leaps and bounds. I loved the original version and really didn't think she could improve it by a lot but boy did she prove me wrong.

Loved it all of Shayne's books just drag you into the story and you fall in love with the people in them

Wonderful story. It's not all about looks or material things but the beauty and strength inside a person. Wade, Knox and Galina are very strong people. Wade and Knox show Galina that they are able to love her for her and not her image the world sees.

yum. that's all i've got to say, lol.

(really - it was a good book - super hot, not much of a story going on, mainly just focusing on building their relationship - quick & dirty *wink wink*)

Fell in love with "the Hermit" and have been a huge fan since! This book was so much hotter than I had anticipated and now I'm hooked on this series! Definitely a must read!

Another awesome novella in this series. LOVED IT.

The HEA was expected but a wonderful story, and ending.

It had a few editing mistakes, paragraphs repeated & a few words mistyped.

For some reason I couldn't really build up a connection for the heroine. Which wasn't because she might have been annoying or stupid. In fact, Galina is a pretty likeable heroine. But I guess the completely over-the-top story surrounding her character made it hard for me to find into the story.

Her heros though, Knox and Wade, were SUPER likeable and probably my highlight in this book. They treated her with so much respect that it made me swoon.

Another stunner

Another great hea story from Shayne. She weaves the loom of character magnificently. Adding to the world Shayne has created with The Barter System, she never disappoints with little glimpses here and there. In Embrace the Wild we get a small glimpse in the life of our beloved Hollow. It can stand alone but is so much better when you are fully involved with Shayne's characters. Start with The Barter System and continue on from there. I promise you will not be disappointed.

Good series

This is very good series. Alot of the characters where mention or had small roles in Tut he Barter System. So far U have not read a book by SM that I have not thoroughly enjoyed.

Wade, Knox and Galina, they changed my point of view. I always as many little girls wanted to be perfect and a superstar. I would never ever want this anymore. And after reading the story I would want it less. Now I just want to be like Galina when not in the spotlights. She's so grounded even after everything she went trough. I just want to be perfect in the eyes of someone I love and the rest can go fly a kite. I fell in love with Galina for her strong will and her inner beauty.
