Wild Love by Elsie Silver: Rosie Belmont should be the absolute last person that Ford has any unpure thoughts about, after all he has known her his entire life and she is his best friends little sister. But for as long as Ford can remember Rosie has driven him mad, in the best way possible, and now with her back home and looking at him with those big pleading eyes how can he say no to giving her a job. Maybe having a bit of help right now wont be so bad after all, with trying to balance opening his new recording studio and trying to parent his newly found twelve year old daughter. So really the last thing that Ford should do is entertain any ideas about Rosie but between her sassy comebacks and helping Cora feel more comfortable, Ford cant help but want to pull Rosie in rather than keep her at arms length.

I just loved this book to bits! There was absolutely nothing not to love about this super cute take on the billionaire, small town, single dad, brothers best friend romance. Wild Love combined all of my favourite tropes into one incredibly addictive romance. There was so much of heart and emotion laced through this book that it made it hard not to want to read this all in one sitting.

“Because as much as I don’t need a knight in shining armour to defend my honour, I’m relieved I have one who feels compelled to do so.”

Oh my goodness Ford was just swoon worthy, this guy was the perfect hero all wrapped up in one awkwardly cute and shy package. I just adored Ford and his struggles with trying to find his footing as a new girl dad to a preteen. His relationship with Cora was just perfection, getting to see him freak out a bit at his new responsibility was just gold to read, he was terrified of messing up, but made sure that Cora felt safe and loved. I truly loved seeing their relationship grow. As for our leading lady Rosie, well she was just a darling, it was hard not to like her character and root her on when she was so nice. I loved her sass and never give up attitude. I loved the way she instantly took Cora under her wing and gave her that female support that any teen girl would need. She was genuinely a great leading lady with a heart of gold.

The chemistry between Ford and Rosie was perfection. There was banter for days between these two, they had so much of sass and steam that I just could not wait for them to finally get together. I just loved the way Ford was with Rosie, he so clearly was smitten with her all these years, his actions and the thought he put into all their interactions was just gold. I also liked that he was kind of shy around her.

The supporting characters in this book were incredible. I loved the bromance between Ford and West. I loved how silly and funny West was but at the same time there to support Ford. It would be a total miss not to take a moment to mention Cora, gosh this girl was the life of this book. She brought so much of light and laughter to this story and I loved her sassy preteen attitude. She came in with a bang and rocked everyones worlds. I loved getting to see her finally be a child and carefree after having to grow up so fast and learn to face the big bad world. Seeing her bond with Rosie and Ford was just so heartwarming.

Wild Love is a total must read, this book will melt your heart and have you swooning. Silver has done a brilliant job at incorporating the single dad trope with the friends to lovers/brothers best friend trope. This book was just brilliant, a definite must read!

Book Info:

Publication: April 9, 2024 | Bloom Books | Rose Hill #1

She’s been driving him wild for years . . . the good kind of wild.

The kind of wild that comes with wanting your best friend’s little sister and knowing you can’t have her.

Forbes may have labeled Ford Grant the World’s Hottest Billionaire, but all he cares about is escaping the press and opening a recording studio in gorgeous small town Rose Hill. Something that comes to a screeching halt when he ends up face-to-face with a young girl who claims he’s her biological father. Now, he spends his days balancing business with parenting a sullen twelve-year-old, all while trying desperately to keep his hands the hell off his best friend’s sister, Rosie Belmont.

After living in the city, Rosie came blasting back into town like a storm. Beautiful, messy, and chaotic. And one wide-eyed, desperate plea for a job is all it takes for Ford to hire her. He vows to keep her at arm’s length. Tries to stick to scowls and grumpy one-liners. But with her, verbal sparring is a type of foreplay―friction that soon turns to blistering heat.

Ford knows damn well he shouldn’t cross this line. But shouldn’t and can’t are two very different things.

And the only thing he truly can’t do is resist her.
