Book Review: Wild Spirit by Audrey Carlan

When I was born, I was beloved by my parents. I felt their warmth from the tips of my toes to the untamable curls in my hair—until tragedy hit and I lost them both.

With no extended family, I ended up in Kerrighan House, a home for girls just like me—girls who’d lost everything. Mama Kerri took me in and treated me with nothing but love, as did the rest of my sisters of the soul. In that house, we formed a bond that could never be broken.

Now danger seems to follow all of us. But what danger could come to me: a petite, high-school Spanish teacher who’d never hurt a fly? The only one on my tail is Omar Alvarado, the bodyguard hired to protect me from the danger lurking around my sisters. The more I shun his advances though, the harder he tries to earn my favor. Omar seems to like my brand of sass and doesn’t hide the fact he wants me for his own.

I’m determined to not get caught up in his beautiful smile, the sexy suggestions he whispers in my ear, or that incredible body that would make any woman swoon with desire.

Even with the tension rising between us, all seemed to be kept in check—until I found myself in the middle of a high stakes bank robbery.

And the only one who could save me, was the one man I tried so desperately to push away.

This book was so much fun to read. Liliana and her family have been through so much, but she refuses to live in fear because she wants to honor the sister she lost to violence. She and Omar have a contentious relationship from the moment they meet. The attraction’s mutual but Lily is determined to ignore the smooth-talker, no matter how hot he is, because he’s all talk.

Lily shut down his advances repeatedly and ignored him for months, but now she needs his help. There’s nobody else she trusts with her life or to protect her family, only Omar. The banter between these two is fantastic, but there’s so much more to this story than their relationship. The thriller aspects of the plot are riveting and Lily’s unique family situation is a central focus as well.

I wish I’d read the first two books in the series before this one but I haven’t and can promise that it’s not necessary. This is a fast-paced story of suspense and the romance is almost a bonus, but it’s steamy and sweet, too.

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
