The Opposite of Wild by Kylie Gilmore  Unleash the wild woman…? 

Ex-cop Ryan O'Hare takes one look at buttoned-up control freak Liz Garner and just itches to loosen the woman up. Not that he’s into her. Because a woman like that comes with way too many expectations. Not to mention, she practically works for him, and he didn’t hire Liz to watch after his beloved Harley-stealing Gran so he could turn Liz loose in his bed. Still, there’s something about her, a hidden wild side, that makes him wonder what it would take. 

Liz must be crazy to work for the insensitive, arrogant, horribly…hot man she's avoided for years. Unfortunately, she needs the money and Ryan's grandmother needs a keeper. (Midnight tango lessons and ziplines with Gran, anyone?) Ryan's rare smile and swaggering confidence have Liz torn between throwing her favorite pinot grigio at his head or throwing herself at him. Can this control freak find a way to let loose with the tough, no-strings guy who once broke her heart?

MY REVIEW:
There was a major humiliation that happened 17 years ago between Liz Garner and Ryan O’Hare at the city pool where he was a life guard.  This event was life altering for Liz who at the time was 13 years old, overweight, awkward, and shy.
     To her he was the older 17 year old, handsome, trim, confident, and in control life guard she had crushed on.  It was so humiliating she has done everything and anything to avoid any and all contact with Ryan since.
     Since that time though she has done everything in her power also to change that girl that everyone saw, through dieting and exercising.  Plus, she is now a respected teacher, does nothing in which anyone could talk badly about her at all.
     Ryan looked at that day she calls one big “Humiliation” as life altering in that it made him want to protect and serve.
To be able to do whatever he could to help people and he always thought of Liz as the girl that helped him on his career path. 
     Yet, Liz wanted the white picketed fence, kids, and a husband with the no shedding dog.  Whereas, Ryan wanted to find a good “lay” and move on no “strings attached.”  She tries his way when meets his grandmother and becomes her keeper.  But when things become confusing for them very quickly when lines become blurred.  I love the characters, Molly, Ryan’s grandmother is a hoot!  You will fall in love with this cast of crazy characters and their offbeat lives.  I give this book 5 stars.  Provide by netgalley.com.  Find us on: www.1rad-readerreviews.com
