This was a really fun book. I liked the characters and totally could feel the sexual tension between them. The way it all came together was pretty perfect. I loved Satan, ahem, Wyatt’s little dog. Wyatt definitely knew how to get under Sydney’s skin, but I totally understood her irritation with him. Her reasons for not wanting him to help out were very understandable. Even if sometimes I felt she might be acting a little stubborn, he didn’t help with the way he tried to offer “help”. He could de ...more

Wyatt and Sydney gave me a reason to smile. Gilmore has the magic touch when it comes to swoon-worthy romance. Fetching reminds the heart how it feels to love. With sprinkles of humor and tons of soul, Gilmore takes us out of our heads and puts us back in touch with our hearts. Adorable with a capital A.

If you are looking for an easy sexy winter read, then Fetching is the one you want to curl up with by a fire. The sparks between these two could light that fire for you honestly. It’s an age-old relationship troupe where he’s a sexy billionaire and she’s a stubborn as heck woman running a family business. I mean there is even a cute little dog named Snowball. Who doesn’t love puppies?

"Fetching" is the first book I've read by Kylie Gilmore, but it appears to be a spinoff from an earlier series (The Rourkes) complete with appearances by characters from its final book ("Rogue Beast"). It reads as a standalone, however, and I was easily able to keep up with all of the characters and events.

I really enjoyed this cute, funny enemies-to-lovers romance, which featured likeable characters and an engaging plot. The chemistry between main characters Sydney Robinson and Wyatt Winters w

Amazing start to a brand new series! I absolutely LOVED Fetching! It looks as though the series will be based on the Robinson family in New York. It’s close to Clover Park! ;). The first book is about the only girl in the family Sydney, who runs the troubled family bar. She is the only girl with four brothers, two older and two younger. She is a tough and strong woman who handles her business on her own and doesn’t need any help, than you very much! Then she meets Wyatt who loves to help people ...more
Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.

The man drove her nuts, making negative comments about her business! But Lord he was pretty to look at. Wyatt has an opinion about everything, and it riles Sydney up no end. When Sydney finds out why he was sent to help, she ain't happy, not at all. She can't mis business and pleasure, can she?

I enjoyed this, a lot. I didn't love it though and I'll tell you why shortly.

I loved Sydney, I really did. She won't let Wyat

Fetching is an enemies to lovers romance that is a perfect mix of humor, cringy moments and heart. Fetching is the first book in the Unleashed series. It’s a spin off of Kylie Gilmore’s Rourke series that is filled with a new set of characters you can’t help but want to get to know. This is Sydney’s story.

Sydney is the owner of the local restaurant and bar called the Horseman Inn. It has been owned by her family for generations. She is determined to revitalize it and make it a success. The ship

I love Kylie Gilmore's ability to draw you into the stories that she writes! You feel like a participant and not a spectator. I also love the way she intermingles characters from one series to the next. Is like catching up with old friends.

This story is about Wyatt, a self-made billionaire and Sydney, a spit fire business owner who's business is failing. Wyatt likes to God failing businesses but Sydney wants nothing to do with the man she affectionately calls "Satan".

It is so refreshing to read a book with characters who communicate honestly. That’s not to say they aren’t stubborn. Both Sydney and Wyatt are smart, strong people.

Sydney is in deep debt with the family business and won’t ask for help. And she’s definitely not interested in the town’s newcomer’s opinion. Wyatt, aka Satan, criticizes everything about her restaurant. From the food to every beer they offer, and he can’t even seem to remember her name! He makes her so mad every time he comes in, wh

I love Kylie Gilmore's sence of humor with this new series! Her quirky characters are instantly feisty yet heartwarmingly loveable.

Sydney is struggling to keep her family's four generation bar and restaurant open as the bills continue to mount but she is determined to find a way to save it by herself. Now, new guy in town, Wyatt Winters, is criticizing everything about it in one breath and insisting on helping her in the next, which only makes Sydney dig her heals in further. But when the two ge

This is a sweet, light-on-the-drama romance.

Wyatt Winters has a gift for turning failing businesses around. Yet, Sydney Robinson doesn't seem to want his help, even though she's barely keeping her business alive. The two are at loggerheads, until a snowstorm melts the animosity between them completely. Though they strive for casual, they both realise that they are head over heels for each other. But will these two strong personalities make it to the finish line?

Amazing start to a new series! Loved it, can't wait for more! 5 stars for this one!
Starting off this new series, we meet Sydney, runs her family bar, that isn't making enough money to stay open, hence why her brother walked away from it. She's determined to keep her family legacy open no matter what. She's quirky, and has an issue with a new customer, Wyatt, whom she refers to as "Satan", who always has something negative to say about her bar food, beer, he's just over critical and she can't sta

This is a must read!! I gobbled this book right up. Not gonna lie I stayed up way too late reading this one. I just couldn't put it down. I loved Wyatt and Sydney. Their banter right from the beginning had me sold on this book. Another thing I loved about this book is the humor. I laughed through out the whole book. Along with the humor there is a lot of heart and feels. This is a make you feel good story. Now Wyatt, that man had me swooning. Everyone deserves a guy like him. He notices and pays ...more

I love a good rom-com, and this one definitely hits the spot. Wyatt and Sydney have been sparking off one another since they first met, so they have great chemistry. Their banter is so funny and keeps the book hopping along. They both have lessons to learn in order to be good partners, but I liked the way Sydney stood her ground about her own business. I also liked that Wyatt was such a thoughtful brother. We also get to meet some of the other residents of Summerdale who will be getting books, a ...more

When you have two head strong individuals with chemistry out of this world, they will clash. Sydney and Wyatt were two peas in a pod. Driven, stubborn, and helpful. Add in good intentions and family history you have a fest of chocolate, wine, and shared looks amongst friends, Kylie is good at that.

The action of Sydney and Wyatt in the beginning made them one of the funniest couples to boot. This started off rocky with the insults and "pet" names but it developed into an explosive romance. I trul

Wow! I loved Fetching by Kylie Gilmore which is a wonderful start of the Unleashed Romance series. Wyatt and Sydney’s hate/love relationship is humorous and romantic.

What a fantastic start to what promises to be another brilliant series from Kylie Gilmore. Fetching was a pleasure to read with main characters that are easy to see belong together. They are also surrounded by family and friends that will hopefully star as main characters in their own book through out this series. If you have enjoyed previous Kylie Gilmore books then this is a must read, if you are new to Kylie Gilmore then stop reading my review and get started you will be happy you did.

So fun and a great start to a new series! Sydney and Wyatt were perfect together only they didn't know it. They are both complex with deep histories and motivations which of course they don't share with each other, but create the tensions and motivations that move the plot along. Both of their families are wonderful secondary characters and I can't wait for more in the series for Sydney's brothers and friends and Wyatt's sister to get their own stories! ...more

Sydney's family business is in deep debt, she refused a loan from a friend, and she will not let anyone have a say in what changes to make. Wyatt is a good business man and has the time and money to invest in others' businesses. He also enjoys his verbal sparring with Sydney. She will take no suggestions to help her failing business. Sydney is beyond stubborn about the business that it make her ridiculous. I enjoyed the dual POV. ...more

Fetching is another great story by Kylie Gilmore. As an author, Gilmore manages to get her readers to identify with her characters. This draws them further into the story & keeps them engaged. I love her way of introducing updates on characters from previous books. Wyatt & Sydney rub each other the wrong way. Wyatt thinks he’s giving her ideas to improve the bar. Sydney thinks he’s criticizing everything. When they take the time to learn more about each other, the sparks begin to fly!

I absolutely loved this book and couldn't put it down! Wyatt is a successful retired business man. Sydney inherited a struggling family business. Together they make all sorts of fireworks between the tension, the snark, the banter, and ohh the feelings. So many feelings.

These two eventually get their act together and fall hard and fast in love.

Buy this book! I can't imagine you not enjoying it.

A great start to a new series. I love Sydney and Wyatt, they are both stubborn and think that need to do things their way but once they actually talk they realise they can make it work. I love that this series brings in characters we have already met and love. I am looking forward to more of this series.

Kylie Gilmore has written one sweet, funny romance with all the feels. Wyatt and Sydney throw sparks from their first meeting, to the very last page. Add in a sweet dog, a younger sister, a snow storm, and you have a RomCom that will leave you in stiches, and waiting for the next book in this new series. A full five stars.
