Bred by capricious parents for his innate leopard-shifting abilities, billionaire Jake Bannacotti has spent his life in an emotional vacuum – especially after a tragic twist of fate has left him to raise his infant son alone. But when his path crosses that of an enigmatic young woman, Jake’s life takes a detour he could never have predicted. There is something irresistible about Emma Reynolds – something Jake can’t live without. She’s the first human to stir something in him he’s never felt before so he hires her as his son’s nanny to keep her close. It soon becomes apparent that she may not be all that she seems, yet what’s raging between them is pure animal instinct – out of control, burning wild and as hot as the lick of a flame.

One word AMAZING!
I was hooked from the start with Jake. It was harsh and brutal for him when he was young, which im so glad we got to read to fully understand and love the complex character that is Jake Bannacotti! Jake finds it hard to trust anyone because of his past and gives Emma a rough time constantly. He is also a fantastic dad but cannot bring himself to love them or anyone around him.
Emma is a great mother and a strong minded woman,who is Jake’s perfect match. I felt like screaming at the book for them just to be honest with each other and get together.
There are other great characters in the book mainly Drake for me who we first heard about in the first novel fever.
Tons of action, twists and turns, danger and some mystery in this book that will leave you on the edge of your seat.
Personally for me this was better than the first book Fever. I didn’t want to put this book down and cannot wait to read the next Wild Fire.
