Stone's My Favorite Wilder (so far)

INSTANT GRATIFICATION is the second book in Jill Shalvis' Wilder series about three brothers that share the same last name. This time around we get middle brother, Stone's story.

Dr. Emma is uptight and only in Wishful for a short time (so she thinks) to run her father's practice while he recovers from a heart attack. Emma is use to running an ER in New York and the very slow pace of Wishful is driving her nuts. But not as nuts as the sexy Stone.

Stone is the glue that keeps the Wilder family together. He's the peace keeper, the one that does all the things the others don't want to do like the paperwork for Wilder Adventures and he's sexy as hell. And he can't wait to get Dr. Emma to loosen up and see what kind of fun they could have together.

Emma and Stone dance around each other for a while but once they start dancing together they really heat of the "pages" of INSTANT GRATIFICATION. If you're looking for a romance where the guy is an alpha outdoorsman and the gal is a city girl who needs a little dirtying up then you need to check out INSTANT GRATIFICATION by Jill Shalvis.

Narration:

Liisa Ivary's narration is growing on me. Liisa does an excellent job with the male voices and she manages to change her voice for the females characters where her non-dialogue voice is different, instead of it being the same as the heroine's which it is nice. I still think that Liisa's voice sounds a little too mature for these younger couples but that's something I'm willing to over look. I can't wait to listen to the next book, INSTANT TEMPTATION.

Better than the first book, but . . .

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would change the way they handled the sale of the clinic. I can't go into detail about what I'd change without spoiling the ending, but I was disappointed with that part.


If you’ve listened to books by Jill Shalvis before, how does this one compare?

I listened to the first book in this series. Both have the same narrator and I have the same problem as with the first book. Her voice is a little too old for the lead females, but she's a good storyteller.


What would have made this romance irresistible?

Less emphasis on the doctor's part regarding her going back to her life in New York. At first it's understandable. After the relationship with Stone is showing promise, it seems a little unbelievable that she would throw it away.


Any additional comments?

I've read many of Jill's books and this won't be my last. Maybe the last book in the series will remind me why I fell in love with her books in the first place.
