Call Me Wild
Jessica James's life has taken a sharp turn for the worse. After losing her job as a sportswriter and her apt in New York City, she relocates to Boise to write a bestselling romance novel. Unfortunately, Jessie has never read a romance, doesn't believe in love and lacks any relatable personal experiences. While suffering from writer’s block she repeatedly runs into Fisher Kincaid, a local doctor, who offers himself up as test subject material for her book. The “research project” goes awry from the start due to the assistance of the hilarious Kincaid family (two brothers, one sister, and an entertaining grandfather) who "help" by meddling at every turn. Scheming by the younger sister puts Jessie and Fisher together for the weekend in an isolated cabin, where they are forced to acknowledge their mutual attraction. This working romance conveniently writes Jessie’s book for her as the fictional characters mirror the real life situation she has found herself in. Call Me Wild by Robin Kaye is an easy and enjoyable read that had me laughing out loud, over and over.
