description
Beautiful tension…

What happens when the family business threatens to destroy your family? Well, if you’re the Wildes you do everything you can to get out… Matt had spent the last few years in prison and, while harder than he thought, he was committed to going legit. His brothers were beside him but the woman he loved was still on the wrong side of the fence. Katya was caught in a hell she was born into. One she could see no way out of. But that didn’t mean she couldn’t dream about ‘what if’….

Oh

Well, I very much enjoyed the 1st book in the series: 'Betting on Him' & I had high hopes for this one too. So much so I pre-ordered it after reading the 1st one.
So, I dove in, fingers crossed to read the 2nd one: 'Betting on Her' & was delighted with it.
This book has a completely different 'feel' to it (IMO) than the 1st one. Although there was some action toward the end of 'Betting on Him', it took place mainly in the Wilde family's Casino, was more focused on the strategy Alex Wilde n

Kelly Collins has done it again with this wonderful story of forbidden love, marriage triangle and Russian mobsters. As with most of the books I read by this author I was glued to the end with the wonderful characters and a fast-moving intriguing plot full of twists and turns. This book is full of love, family, friendship, hot chemistry, family loyalty, revenge, betrayal, lies, and secrets with a Russian mob princess and a former Italian mobster. I received an ARC copy of this book and this is m ...more

Betting On Her #2 - Lucky for me I could chain read both books. BOHim left me riding a high, so it was only natural to continue the ride with BOHer. This book is just as entertaining as the first and there's actually a third book in the series, three Wilde brothers, but of course. There are the same great characters with a few new ones added to the mix. Good chemistry again, with explicit sex, which I skipped since I find written sex boring. This story is also fast paced, intriguing and humorous ...more

This is my first book by Kelly Collins and it is not going to be the last one. I will say I should have read the first book in the series because I would have gotten some background on the characters and some of the history they have but you can read this as a standalone. I ABSOLUTELY loved every moment of this book. There is romance, suspense, twists and turns, surprises that will have you on the edge of the seat reading wanting no needing to know what is coming next. I love a good old mobster ...more

I don't really know what I expected of this book but it blew my mind away just like book one. And like a mention before every "mob" book I've read I've ended either giving it 1-2 stars or DNFing it but this ones I have fallen in love with.

Katya is the ex-fiance of Matt's brother in book one and she is forced to become the fiance of another man that the Russian Bratva has appointed because of her father's carelessness in disposing of the Wilde's

Katya Petrenko is a Russian Princess who is being forced to marry Sergei Volkov after her father, Yuri, was unable to get her to marry Alex Wilde.

Matt Wilde has just spent the last few years in jail after being sent there from Yuri Petrenko. He is hell bent on getting revenge but he knows that his heart still remains with his daughter Katya.

Both Matt and Katya know they want to be together but there is so much standing in their way, including the Russian mob. When it's clear how much danger the

BETTING ON HER is the story of Katya Petrenko and Matt Wilde; two people who were born into families who view the other as the enemy. This is not a life for the meek and mild. You either learn to survive or you pay the price.

I am so glad Katya Petrenko got her own story because she is a character from BETTING ON HIM (book one in the Wilde Love series) that I was really curious about. Katya is a pawn. She has no control over her life. She is the daughter of a mafia man and her value lies in her t

thoroughly enjoyed book one, ‘Betting On Him’, and so eagerly looked forward to book two especially with the strong, sassy Katya as lead female.

Having successfully avoided marrying Alex Wilde Katya Petrenko, a Russian mob princess, is being forced to marry a bullish Russian called Sergei Volkov. Both have very little time and definitely no love for Yuri, Katya’s father! Matteo Wilde is the proverbial spanner in the works, who also would like to see Katya’s father suffer.

Heck the whole way throu

The second book in this series, Betting on Her is exciting and fast-paced with more twists and turns than the Monaco Grand Prix race course. Katya decided that Matt would be her prince when she was 8 years old and was more than pleased when her arranged marriage to Matt's older brother was circumvented. They have always had a strong connection and as childhood infatuation grew into a full-blown adult attraction, Matt begins to realise that he is being governed by his heart and not his head.

Look at that beautiful cover! It goes along with the terrific story on the inside. This is another suspenseful, enthralling Las Vegas mob story and a sexy romance with the middle Wilde brother and the Russian mob princess. After reading the first book I was thrilled to see this one come along featuring Kayta because I loved her even though she was sort of a villain. Gotta love those bad girls! Matt certainly does. He's out of jail and ready for payback but will he throw Katya under the bus or ta ...more

What a fantastic second “wilde” book in the series by Ms. Collins! I wasn’t sure how Ms. Collins could “top” the first book in this series, “Betting on Him”, but she did (we get to catch up on Alex and Faye from the first book)! The second Wilde brother, Matt, has recently been released from prison for an offense he did not commit. Matt knows he was “set up” by Russian mobster Yuri Petrenko and almost killed while in prison. Matt has always been in interested in Katya, Yuri’s daughter, but knew ...more

I can only say I loved this book.
It was a great mob story with real good characters.
Katya who seemed like her less than loving upbringing hardened her. She was nothing but a pawn in the games her father played. Hard on the outside but full of love for the right person. She did everything she could to protect Matt consequences be damned.

Matt realised pretty soon he wanted Katya. Against all odds and his and his brother's better judgement. He tried to stay away but couldn't. He wasn't easily deter

Betting on Her is a really good star crossed lovers story! I recommend reading Betting on Him first because of the inter connected characters and the storyline that flows through each book. We first meet Katya in Betting on Him. She's the daughter of a Russian crime boss that wants to launder money through the Wilde brothers casino. Now that Matt is out of prison he is taking over the reigns to the family business and he has always had his eye on Katya even though her father wanted her to marry ...more

I was hooked on this series from the first book and the second follows the precedents it set. Already, the Wildes have a tradition of unfailing loyalty to family and a tendency to fall deeply in love with women who will complicate their lives. Matt and Katya prove this out. His brother has just barely freed them from their mob ties and Matt is only just released from prison, but the danger Katya faces from her own family may be enough to have Matt throwing the Wildes right back into that old lif ...more

Betting On Her is an interesting addition to the Wilde Love series. Matt is newly released from prison and not sure he wants to follow the legal path his brother Alex has worked so hard to achieve. Matt is interested in revenge, even if it means dragging his family back into the world of crime families and mafia. Katya just wants to be free of her father and to be respected for the intelligent woman she truly is. Marrying a Russian mafia goon chosen by her father is the last thing she is willing ...more

Like all the books I have read by Ms. Collins, this one is well written with interesting characters and a splendid plot. This one has a mafia theme along with romance and drama along with some very interesting twists. You will meet strong-willed men and woman within the pages and the interaction between the characters is awesome. Super Book!! I did receive a free copy of this book and voluntarily chose to review it.

Katya is the daughter of a Russian mobster and has loved Matt secretly for as long as she can remember and he feels the same way. Their families are rivals making this match unattainable, or is it? This is a well written story with strong characters, witty banter and a steamy romance. This is book two in the series and a perfect follow up to book one Betting on Him. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.

This was fantastic. I really enjoyed the first in this series, but I liked this one even better. Fiery, unexpected, sexy, and filled with thrills; this is a book you won't want to put down until you've turned the last page. A fantastic mafia-themed romantic suspense that will keep you guessing til the end.

Book two continues on from *that* dinner scene in Book one. This is a story full of love, friendship, chemistry, family, loyalty, revenge, betrayal, lies, hurt, happiness and secrets. Engaging read and sets up book three nicely.

Betting on Her is the second book in the Wilde Love Series. This one follows Katya, a Russian mob princess, and Matt, a man with a mob past. It is jam-packed with both suspense and steam. If you're looking for a well-written book with great characters, then check out Betting on Her. A Kelly Collins' novel never disappoints.

This book is the 2nd book in The Wilde series. It is full of twists and turns. What do you expect when the mob is involved? This series is different from Kelly’s other books. Even though different she nailed it. What happens when the one you love is the one you can’t have? Will the Russian mob princess get her former Italian mobster? You will fall in love with this series.

This is the second book in the Wilde Love series and although I loved the first book (thought it was one of Kelly Collins's best) I am afraid that this one didn't do it for me. I'm not sure why but I couldn't engage with either character, nor the plot. I received a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
