Summary

He’s growly. Grumpy. Stubborn. And now, my new roommate.

Walking away from my disastrous last relationship was an easy decision, but moving in with a friend-of-a-friend hockey star who’s rarely home? Not quite as simple, because Grant makes me feel all kinds of things I’m not prepared for. 

Protected. Desired. Unsteady. 

***

She’s beautiful. Smart. Tempting. And a little fragile. 

I’ve never been anyone’s knight in shining armor, but when Ana needed a place to stay, it was easy to offer her a room with me.

Not so simple, though, is keeping my hands - or my mouth - to myself. And the night she crawls into my bed and shares her body with me? Heaven.

But she’s not looking for a relationship, and to my surprise, I find myself pissed off by that idea.

They say my heart is broken, that I’ll never settle down. I used to think that was true. Now, though? Hell, your guess is as good as mine.

First, she took my bed. Then she took my heart. Then she took my everything. 

*** 

Your favorite hot jocks are back with an all new stand-alone novel. If you like sexy, confident men who know how to handle a stick (on and off the ice), and smart women who are strong enough to keep all those big egos in check, this series is for you! 

Each book can be listened to as a complete stand-alone.

Beautifully narrated

Wild for You is a sweet, slow burn, inter-connected standalone. I was enthralled from the beginning and enjoyed every minute of it. It was sweet, funny at times, and emotional. Perhaps my favourite book in the Hot Jocks series so far.

This was such a sweet story. After the last book, I had a feeling about the direction this book would take as I’m sure most readers/ listeners did. I was curious to see how it would play out and be handled. And I have to say that the sensitive subject was handled with care.

There is a key message in this story that I loved, I don’t want to go into detail due to spoilers but anyone that knows my personally will probably understand the message I mean.

The only issue I really had was that there looked like a subplot was going to happen but nothing ever did. It felt to me that it was there to get the reader wondering without ever giving it life. Or an explanation.

Can we just take a moment to bask in Grant’s amazingness? I don’t even care if that’s a word or not. He is everything you’d expect from a good guy. He’s alpha but not over the top, he takes Ana’s needs into consideration, he backs off when he needs to, but, he also doesn’t sacrifice his own needs. He’s supportive and sweet...in his own grumpy way. He didn’t rush anything. He handles Ana with care without using kid gloves. And his interaction with the dog are just swoon inducing. He was everything I didn’t know I needed in my book life at the moment.

Joe Arden was fabulous as Grant, he really embodied the character. You believed what he was selling, so to speak. He delivered the dialogue in such a way that you couldn’t help but sigh at times. The vulnerability mixed with the alpha attitude was so uniquely Joe, that you couldn’t imagine anyone else performing the part.
Virginia Rose was wonderful as Ana, she performed a difficult subject with such sensitivity that you could just get lost in the feelings of the character. It was raw and beautiful. And how the performance changed as the character grew and progressed was just beautiful.

FANTASTIC FAST PACE

Here we have another great episode of the Hot Jocks series. Here we see how caring & protective Grant the team's captain really is, when he's there to help Ana whose the girlfriend of 1 of his team mate Jason, though he doesn't really like our respect him, but it's after hearing the way he spoke & acted to his girlfriend Ana..
We see how their lives turnaround in a blink of an eye when Ana asks for his help & things don't even stop there when a cctv post got out into the media, which makes Grant even more protective against Ana. & don't forget that she's really a stranger to him & vice versa.
They become closer in their short time of living together, even after she moves out he's still there for her.
This is such a beautiful hea of the joining of 2 💕

Joe Arden & Virginia Rose were great Narrators

It was an ok read

I love Kendall’s books but this one for me is sadly not a favourite, although it was a good read i felt it lacked something between the two main characters. I think there was only maybe 3 times in the book that they where intimate together in that way and the book took a more serious tone dealing with domestic violence issues. There didn’t seem to be any passion between them, no push and pull. Grant is amazing but Ana I couldn’t connect with.

So Much Heart

I'm in love with the Hot Jocks series from Kendall Ryan and who couldn't be? Just enough hockey to give sports lovers a taste, but more importantly characters with so much depth. Giving a review of this book is so difficult because I don't want to give spoilers at all -- but the plot is so dang moving. Ana is in a situation that too many women find themselves in; therefore the story grabbed my heart and took it for a ride. Grant is the strong, silent, gruff Team Captain that we all want to know more about what goes on in that handsome head of his; Ms Ryan's writing does not disappoint with internal dialogue.

Then our author takes the writing up a notch and provides us incredible narrators in Virginia Rose & Joe Arden. Rose's Ana has so much depth, vulnerability and strength it's impossible not to fall into the story even more. I loved her chapters so much because her voice really brought to life the push back and forth Ana had towards Grant. Oh, and Grant.....sweet, quiet Grant. For such a quiet character Joe Arden brought so much emotion to the inner commentary that you really felt with him in his moments of anger, joy, sadness and love. Joe's declarations of Grant's love for Ana were truly remarkable. So Much Heart in this entire performance from two great narrators. And I can't wait for more from my Hot Jocks.

I love Kendall Ryan Books

My problem with this book is that regardless of how things happened the ending seemed shitty on Anna’s part. She seemed self centered and didn’t think about Grant at all. As sweet and wonderful as Grant is in handling the situation the way the book didn’t conclude is just highly unlikely you’d want to know even if it didn’t matter. Leaving that unknown bothers me. This is my least favorite in the series.

Not for me.

I usually love K. R.'s books, but this one left me wanting.

There is an unbalanced vibe between the main characters.

I loved Grant, and greatly disliked Ana.

I know the author is trying to write the heroine as a strong woman, but she comes off as selfish, thoughtless, and egoist. Many times it felt like she was using the hero - either for emotional support or just to scratch her itches.

The only way I could explain would leave too many spoilers.

In short, I loved Grant, but completely disliked Ana. She is selfish, self centered, and seems to put her abusive ex before the man that has shown her kindness, love, and has been there for her since the beginning of her ordeal. I just couldn't relate to Ana and the story felt one sided on the romance department.

I REALLY loved the hero. Grant was so sweet, nice and giving towards Ana. He wasn't too grumpy, and if he was, he became a Teddy Bear fast, and he didn't deserve being used by Ana. He was always there for her offering support and help while she left him out of the loop on simple things that would have made him happy, like giving him a chance to help her move instead of using his teammates while keeping in the dark. At a point it feels like she uses him when she is horny as her personal orgasm provider.

This book was not for me, but it has a lot of positive feedback, so don't let my less than stellar one keep you from giving it a try.

The narrators were great. I specially like Joe Arden and wish he would have gotten more narration time.

My Hot Jocks Series FAVE

Grumpy Grant likes to help and be needed. He is just the one to heal Ana's "scars on her soul". And Ana is just the one to get Grant out of his grumpiness. Super hot and sweet. Grant will make you melt for his sexiness and sweetness.

Loved this series

What a great series. Can’t wait to read the next story. Grant is so gruff and sweet at the same time. Going through so much tragedy has made Ana a strong woman. The attraction between these two characters is so electric. Loved it.

Terrible

Ana was absolutely awful. I hated her character and how she treated Grant. Just because someone else doesn't treat you well doesn't mean you are allowed to treat others badly.
