T.J. Wilder is the perfect package of breathtaking adventure and raw sex appeal. Even better, he's about to reconnect with the one woman he's never been able to forget....

All good things must come to an end and that's what INSTANT TEMPTATION is to the Wilder series. But Jill Shalvis saved the best for last!
T.J. is the Wilder bother that stays gone for long periods of time taking clients on weeks to month-long treks into the mountains. He uses these trips to feel free and to avoid one spunky blonde tow truck driver that gets his motor running.
Harley is said tow truck drive and she has her hands full taking care of her hippie parents and little sister. Harley is short on her rent and eating cheap so that she can foot the bills for her family. She does all this while working a full-time job and trying to finish college and working an intern job for free in hopes she will get her dream job.
T.J. and Harley bicker like two kids fight over the last piece of candy. But what neither of them will admit is that all the bickering gets them both hot and bothered in another way. Harley does her best to stay away from T.J. because of one night they spent together back in high school. Harley thinks that T.J. doesn't remember the night because she means nothing to him even though her high school crush on him has never died. T.J. can't stop thinking about Harley and can't figure out why she can't stand him.
After the two open up to each other during a trip in the woods all becomes clear and they start to work on a HEA. I've said it before and I'll say it again . . . second chance at love in contemporary romances is one of my favorite tropes.
I'm sad to say that it took me 3 books to get into Liisa Ivary's narration. Now I'm sold on her voice for the Wilder gang and wish there were more books to listen to. If you're looking for a fun and sexy small town romance series you should pick up Jill Shalvis' Wilder series and I recommend it on audio. They are fun and fast listens with just the right about of heat.
"writer - reader"
This was the last one in the series. I suggest you read all 3. This is one of the best series of three because the were all great. If you like a fun loving romance this whole series is for you. I loved the setting. Now I'm checking out real vacation spots. This is how bookbub was meant to work. Get the first Audible book for $3, fall in love with book and immediately order the remaining regardless of cost. I've done this several different times and found some real keepers. I will definitely listen to these again over the years. Great stories and narrator does the story justice. Super combination.
A Hot and Steamy story of two long time"friends"or"frenemies"who after alot of bickering,bantering and scorching moments realize they have wasted alot of time playing this"love/hate"relationship through a night from long ago,cherished by one but forgotten by the other.Eventually though,the heat makes the hearts warm and beat where there's no denying the incredible attraction and what should have been,finally becomes a love meant to be.Fun and sexy.Listening to the antics and come backs between the two characters is like an interesting kind of fore play.Loved the story.Very sexy:)
I enjoyed this one the most. The interaction between the two leading characters was fun -- my second favorite was Cam and Katie's story, and I really enjoyed Nick and Annie's story that is woven through the three books. I liked Stone, but really couldn't find anything about Emma to like.
only the three books in this series -- but I'll look for more in the future
I laughed several times.
Great series! My husband and I enjoyed all 3 books. Romance, adventure, and plenty of laughs.
I highly recommend these stories.
Jill Shalvis has a great sense of humor in her writing and Lisa Ivary does a great job with the right inflection to keep you laughing.
This one competes with Instant Gratification for best in the series. I probably like it most because of my affection for Harley and T.J.
The "interuptions" were fun. I liked watching Harley grow in self-esteem through her time on the river. I wish Annie had showed up a little more often.
