WEEKEND BOOK CLUB: Walk on the Wild Side

I'm involved in several reading challenges this year (not that I need to be challenged to read!) and I've started 2012 off with a bang, buying Natalie Anderson's WALK ON THE WILD SIDE on my kindle (love the instant gratificuation!)

Here's the blurb:

A fling with sinfully hot champion snowboarder Jack Greene isn't Kelsi Reid's normal behavior…but one glimpse of his wicked eyes has Kelsi throwing caution to the deep blue sea (along with her clothes!). After all, who better to go crazy with than a man who deserves a gold medal for his prowess on the slopes and in the bedroom…?

Then Kelsi crashes down with a terrifying bump—of the baby kind. They couldn't be worse matched—Jack is Mr. Right-Now, while Kelsi craves stability. But it's hard to keep your feet on the ground once you've met the man who turns your world upside down...
Dating and Other Dangers set the bar for me with Natalie Anderson's novels (I gave it an unabashed 5 stars, it was fabulous!) so I can't help but compare all her novels to that one.

I loved Walk on the Wild Side (4 1/2 stars).

Sizzling sex scenes, great tension and realistic characters made this a page turner.
Loved the heroine's quirkiness and the hero's take charge attitude with an underlying soft core.
Jack is hot!

Thoroughly enjoyed.
What are you reading this weekend?

I love Natalie's books and can't wait to read "Wild".

I just finished Miranda Lee's "The Man Every Woman Wants".

Have a great weekend :)

I've read Walk on the Wild Side and i loved it....though i was a little confused about her fainting and was expecting something from it, but nothing happened!

I love Natalie's writing. It's so fresh and honest!
I'm starting Who Wants to Marry a Millionaire, it arrived yesterday in the letterbox!

Hey Nicola! I'm so glad you enjoyed WOTWS (and thanks Joanne and Kerrin too!)

I"m reading HUGO at the moment as we're going to the movie tomorrow - so I'm speed reading!

I'm a fan of Natalie's books too, Joanne.

I don't get to read much category rom these days so I'm highly selective when I do :)

Yay, hope you enjoy, Kerrin!
