This tent is too small for the both of us. And I like it that way.

Gabe
I was minding my business. Literally. I promised my dad I’d take care of the Wilder family adventure business in our little Oregon town of Rush Creek, which also means looking out for my mom, my sister, and my rowdy co-workers, AKA my brothers.

Now the business is in trouble. Overnight, Rush Creek has b

    Make Me Wilder is a great light, summer read with the perfect amount of steam and wit.

    This contemporary romance is a complete opposites attract. Lucy is a ‘city girl’ hired to help the Wilder business. Gabe is the opposite, naturally, as the Wilder’s own an outdoor adventure business. As the two get to know each other better, walls begin to break and feelings start.

    I really enjoyed the character development from both of the main characters. Lucy is cast as a city girl that won’t be able to han

    There are a lot of good things that I can say about this book. I am a staunch watcher of Hallmark movies, especially the girl from a big city coming to a small town trying to fix things and the owner of a place being male gets frustrated with her but sparks fly.

    This book has that in droves, but brings all the good parts of a Hallmark movie while giving it a slightly naughtier edge and a pining that will leave you breathless. Serena Bell knows how to take you into the scene and set the stage, mak

    When you think of Wilder Adventures you should imagine outdoorsy vacation, hiking, exploring nature, and possibly getting your hands dirty from time to time. What you should not think is a spa retreat for folks preparing to walk down the aisle, a place to be pampered and buffed... and most definitely not getting an ounce of dirt on you. Which is why Gabe is currently up in arms about his families business going under a major change, it wasn't created to pamper the wealthy, it is supposed to be a ...more

    Can a small town guy fall in love with a big city girl and have a long lasting relationship? Serena Bell's newest book Make Me Wilder is a captivating story with characters that immediately drew me.

    Lucy lives in New York and is brought in to help Gabe with his floundering family business. Actually, Gabe’s mother hires Lucy without Gabe knowing and Gabe is not too happy about it. There is an instant attraction between Gabe and Lucy but Gabe tries his best to resist Lucy and her ideas. He doesn’t

    The minute I saw this book become available on NetGalley, I jumped at the chance to read and review it. I've enjoyed this author's writing style since first reading the Tierney Bay Series and the standalones, Sleepover, Do Over and Head Over Heels. I loved the blurb for this book and it was spot on -- Lucy is literally a fish out of water when it comes to roughing it in the wilderness but she is certainly a good sport about it! I loved her character's spunk and resilience. And who better to help ...more

    Neither Lucy nor Gabe are interested in any sort of relationship. It doesn't help that Lucy is a real "city girl" and Gabe is mot definitely not. She's been hired as a consultant by Gabe's mother to help bring their company, Wilder Adventures, more up-to-date and more accessible (that's not quite the word I was looking for but...) to more people, i.e. those who might not be experienced hikers/fishermen/wilderness types. All of the brothers -- there are 4 so there's hope for stories for all of th ...more

    This book was the perfect palate cleanser after a few "heavy" reads. Gabe's family business Wilder Adventures is in trouble... times have changed and they need to appeal to a wider demographic. Against his wishes, Gabe's mother hires Lucy as a consultant to help market Wilder Adventures and expand their business. Lucy is a city girl through and through and Gabe is the opposite in every way. Classic opposites attract storyline - and I loved it! It was funny and witty with just the right amount of ...more

    The first in a series that I have high hopes for if this are like this book.

    Oh my, what a mix of Hallmark vibes, with a strong female character, and hilarious situations that aren't far fetched. I loved the dual point of views of Lucy and Gabe, along with the world building that happens in the story. The Wilder family is a made up of four brothers who run a outdoorsy vacation getaways in a town that is now more spa's and weddings. You get to know a little bit about people who live/ run businesse

    **Thank you to NetGalley, the author, and Author Collective 20 for an early look at this book in exchange for an honest review**
    This was the first entry in the Wilder Adventures Series. The Wilder family runs an outdoor adventure company and the business is in trouble. Times have changed and they have been too stubborn to change with them. Lucy has been hired as a consultant to come up with a new business plan. Gabe is not pleased that his mother has brought her in. Lucy is a city girl. Gabe is

    Wow! There aren't words to describe how this book made me feel. Lucy and Gabe are both closed off to relationships for their own reasons, but they can't deny their attraction to each other! The scenery of the Pacific Northwest and the excursions that take place really drew me in. The chemistry was also off the charts in this book! I liked the side characters and hope there are more stories detailing what is next for the other Wilder brothers. Hopefully it's more Wilder Romantic adventures!

    This book focuses on Gabe Wilder and Lucy. Lucy who is a marketing specialist consults for Wilder adventures to help them expand to women.

    The book was well written and flowed well. The pacing was good and the secondary characters interesting.

    I can't wait to read about Brody and Rachel.

    Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC in exchange for my honest opinion.

    I don't read a lot of contemporary romance novels but this one sounded promising. Lucy and Gabe are quite interesting characters and the rest are just begging for their stories. Overall I enjoyed this book, although the sex scenes are pretty graphic. I still look forward to reading more from this author. I received an e-book from NetGalley in return for an unbiased review. ...more

    Wilder Adventures is in trouble but not as much as Gabe and Lucy are. The attraction sizzles as they try to overcome past hurts and find their HEA. Can’t help but root for them and all the Wilder brothers. Can’t wait for the next one!
