His best friend’s sister is rocking his boat. In the best way possible.

Brody:
What’s a bad boy doing hosting a book club on his boat? Excellent question. All I can tell you is, it’s not going well. I forgot the bug wipes, the TP, and the hand sanitizer, we’re out of wine, and… well, I may have made some people angry, if the Yelp reviews are any indication. The only way to

Walk on the Wilder Side by Serena Bell is the second book in Serena Bell’s popular Wilder Adventures series. This book can be read as a stand-alone book too. I enjoyed this steamy, funny, and heartwarming story about a bad boy and a good-girl librarian.

Rachel Perez has a plan for her life, and she’s almost checked off every step in her plan. All she needs now is her boyfriend to propose, and then they can have 2.5 children (she can’t decide between 2 or 3 children) an

Ok, so I went into this not realizing that this was book two in the series. Turns out, it was quite alright. We follow Brody and Rachel in this story and man was it hot and steamy! Woo.... spicy scenes... yes please. Forbidden romance... yup all here for it! Sound like your type of book... pick it up! Trust me! Now I need to read the first book while I wait for the next one in the series to come out!

I really enjoyed this second story in the Wilder Adventures series, about a family of outdoor adventure enthusiasts who've made a living with wilderness tours, only to have their lives turned upside down by their town becoming a wedding destination. This has resulted in them having to modify their activities for a new kind of tourist. For Brody Wilder, his fishing and boat tours need to be spruced up for a new audience and after his first outing, a female book club, was something of a disaster, ...more

What an absolute joy of a read! I adored the first book in this series and Walk on the Wilder side was just as good! I have also read Serena Bell's Tierney Bay series and all of her books that I have read have been excellent. If there was one romance author that deserves more recognition and hype, it is definitely Serena Bell.

This series surrounds the Wilder family, whose siblings comprise of 5 very different and yet all gorgeous guy and their sister. The first book focu

Wow!
This is definitely something that I haven’t expected. Mid you look up at the cover, you’ll think “hmm nice sweet romance story “. But it’s much more than that! A whole bunch more than that.
Which I loved. The dialogue was on spotty the chemistry over the charts and the overall story very good.

Brody is the bad boy of the Wilder brothers and his reputation is well earned. Rachel on the other hand is the good girl, she plans everything in her life and does the right thing and all it got her was a cheating boyfriend, let go from her job and back living with her parents in her hometown. On the surface you wouldn’t think that Brody and Rachel would go so well together but they balance each other out well and they reall

That cover is deceptively cute - this book is a quick and steamy treat that features a decidedly NSFW storyline involving *ahem* toy parties. The blurb implies that this is a light and sexy best friend's little sister romance (it is), but it forgets to mention the dirty stuff, lol. I had Siri reading this aloud to me while I was working, and let's just say that things got inappropriate for the workplace pretty quickly. That being said, the story is a low angst, fun read with a classic bad boy/go ...more

Brody Wilder is not the kind of guy that girls should waste thoughts of forever on, he's more of the kind of guy that will make your dirtiest fantasies come true and then be gone by morning's first light. He is a bad boy through and through, and totally lives up to his reputation, but sometimes feels like it's getting a little old. But changing his ways just isn't possible, he can't do commitment or be tied to one woman... or can he?

Maybe he just needed the right woman to come along! But his "ri

Rachel was recently let go from her job and then caught her boyfriend cheating on her so moved back to her small town home.

She reunites with Brody, her brothers best friend, and they become instantly attracted to each other. Brody is a big tattooed biker dude and has such a grumpy exterior but he is actually the sweetest guy ever. I don’t want to spoil anything but his relationship with Justin just melts my heart and I love him even more for it.

This is the second book in the series - each will concentrate on a member of the Wilder family. I would suggest that you read them in order, as the underlying family and business dynamics are core to behaviours which play out in this books. The first book pertained to eldest brother, Gabe - the one that at 15 took on the mantle of head of the family. Next we see Brody, only a year younger, but not given the responsibilit

Book-Challenge 2021: Book 37

I'm in love with this series. First of all we've got a lot of hot brothers. Then it plays in a Small Town. And last but not least: Adorable heroines!

It feels like I sound like a broken record, because there's two things to say here, and it seems I constantly say them:
1. Rachel = spirit animal girl (we would be fast friends, totally)
2. Brody = book boyfriend (love me the misunderstood, broody, bad boy)

It had everything a good romance needs - even the grand gesture in t

Wow. I LOVED this book!

Brody and his almost mysterious aura in book one, Make Me Wilder, had me completely intrigued and eager to read his story. I absolutely adored him, huge heart eyes and all!

Rachel is adorable and funny and I found her personality and demeanor was the most I’ve probably ever related to a character in a book. I just loved everything about her and the way Brody is with her just melted me every time!

A wonderfully written book that once I started I didn’t st

This is going to sound pretty vague just to keep this spoiler free, but the steps getting closer (regarding the plot and relationships) were exactly what I didn't know I wanted. Every beat felt super well executed. Progressions felt natural and perfect!

I loved how the communication worked between Brody and Rachel!

I loved the ending conflict. It felt very natural and reasonable from both perspectives. All in all, I loved the whole stor

Once in Rush Creek she ends up working with bad boy, Brody Wilder , who she has had an all-consuming, brainmelting crush on ever since she can remember. He has always ignored her and Rachael is not sure if he hates her or just finds her so boring as to not be worth his time. The truth is Brody has always been attracted to Rachael, but she is his best friend’s l

I really enjoyed Brody and Rachel's story. The cover looks like you are getting this sweet little story which it was and so much more. I loved that both had crushes on each other from a very young age but neither acted on it. The Bad boy and good girl chemistry was awesome, I loved how Rachel started coming out of her shell so she could pursue her bad boy. I enjoyed the family dynamics. I love a little drama with my story so this delivered a little a bit of that too.

Y’all. My brain just exploded with how excellent this book was, so apologies in advance if this review is mainly incoherent delighted happy noises and squeals.

Walk on the Wilder Side by Serena Bell is the second in her Wilder Adventures series, about the Wilder brothers who jointly own an outdoor adventure company. It’s told in alternating first person perspective.

Brody Wilder is the bad boy. He’s honestly a bit tired of being pigeonholed this way, but there something about the weight of history

A while back I heard a vicious rumor that *some people* might love Brody of Walk on the Wilder Side even more as a hero than they loved his older brother Gabe from Make Me Wilder . Surely, I thought, that cannot be. Better than Gabe? Sacrilege! Who could possibly be a better hero than Gabe Wilder?

Apparently, Brody Wilder, that's who. I have become a convert.

"How does a bad boy end up hosting a book club on his boat?"

Whoever thought putting rough around the edges bad boy Brody in charge of TP, handwipes and keeping a bunch of ladies happy was sadly mistaken but with his place in the family business at stake Brody is willing to do just about anything to get his ratings up and keep his family happy, even if that means hosting adult toys parties with his best friends sister!

Then there is bad boy Brody (the best friend) who isn’t doing well with the family b
