Review: Wilde Horses (Born to Be Wilde #4) by Jannine Gallant

The Wilde brothers may be attracted to all things fast and furious. But their spirited sister can’t be tamed when it comes to matters of the heart . . .

The beautiful vistas and peace and quiet on her family’s Wyoming ranch are a balm for Eden Wilde’s soul—and inspire a gentle touch when it comes to breaking the wild horses she loves. Though there’s no hope on the breathtaking horizon for her love life. Until her sanctuary is invaded by a movie studio shooting their latest blockbuster starring Hollywood’s man of the moment.

After a personal tragedy plays out in his real life, movie star Blake Benedict finds himself falling for the wide-open spaces and easy going pace of Wyoming—and for Eden. Around her, he feels safe shedding his public persona and letting down his guard. But then accidents begin to happen on set, mishaps that could end Blake’s career—or his life. And Eden will be forced out of her comfort zone to save the Hollywood hero from an enemy he never saw coming . . .

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!  The expected publication date is May 23rd, 2017.

This is the fourth book in the Borne to Be Wilde series that features the Wilde siblings.  I have been following this series since the first book however I do believe it could be read as a stand alone if you wanted to.  Since I enjoyed the entire series, my vote is to start at the beginning and learn about all of the siblings.

This story centers around Eden, while all previous stories focused on her brothers.  While her profession is perhaps not considered as adventurous/dangerous as all of her brothers, I would say that breaking wild horses is nothing to sneeze at and she therefore follows the same patterns as her brothers.

Another theme that is in this story that is consistent with all of the stories is the "accidents" that occur and the danger the main characters are in at the hands of an unknown person.  Ok, I must admit, I knew who the perpetrator was from the very beginning in this story however it was still fun to watch it play out.

As in all the stories, the chemistry between Eden and Blake dripped off of the pages and I was behind them the whole way.  I did flip flop a little bit on my opinion of Eden as I felt that she was expecting Blake to do all of the compromising instead of meeting him halfway.  I judge from behind the pages however if I were in her shoes, why wouldn't I want my cake and eat it too?  It doesn't hurt to try.

I was a fan of this entire series and I have had a good time with it.  I have read most of Gallants work and I find that I look forward to her particular style of writing and I am never disappointed.  I look forward to what her next endeavour will be!

About the Author

(From her Goodreads profile)

Write what you know. I've taken this advice to heart, creating characters from small towns and plots that unfold in the great outdoors. I grew up in a tiny Northern California town and currently live in beautiful Lake Tahoe with my husband and two daughters. When I'm not busy writing, I hike or snowshoe in the woods around my home. Whether I'm writing contemporary, historical or romantic suspense, I bring the beauty of nature to my stories.

  1. Thanks for the great review. I'm glad you enjoyed the series! Up next will be a suspense series that takes place in Siren Cove, a fictional town on the Oregon coast. Look for it in 2018.
