Review: Call Me Wild, by Robin Kaye

Sportswriter Jessie James just got the pink slip from her dream job. Unable to support herself, she moves from New York to Idaho to stay in her best friend's house. Her plan is to write a formulatic romance and publish it quick while looking for another job and figuring out what she wants to do. But Jessie doesn't believe in love, so she finds Dr. Fisher Kincaid to be her "research" partner. The thing about romance is, the heart always gets involved. Now she needs to accept she may have been wrong all along or lose the one guy she really found herself falling for.

My only issue with the book was the ridiculous notion Jesse had about writing a romance. Being a romance writer myself, I got not only frustrated, but angry with the way she went about writing this book and her idiotic theories. Honestly, it was downright insulting. Kaye did a great job in putting her in place and giving her the proverbial slap upside the head, rectifying the situation. However, in the end, "publication/the big break/the call" came way too easily, almost proving Jessie right.

In saying that, in true Kaye style, this was funny and sweet and satisfying nonetheless. Kaye never lets me down. It was so rewarding watching Jesse be proven wrong and seeing her fall…right into Fisher's arms. Fisher and his family were quirky and sweet. Hilarious. I haven't read the other books, but I really need to. Especially Karma (the sister). Can't wait. Recommended.
