Well I loved this story, it was sweet and sassy but then also dirty and delightful. If you wanted a romp in the hay with a happy ever after, insta-love, wrapped together with drama then you will love "Wanted".
However I too am a little torn as while reading Wanted I actually really loved and connected with the supporting characters of Ari and Jeff more than Gunner and Ellie. To me Gunner was a little over sensitive, I think I like my men a bit more alpha, he sometimes to me was a little too soft and sensitive for a cowboy. I would have perhaps connected more with Ellie if we saw more anxiety from the way her mother treated her, we had two glimpses of how Gunner settled her down and I loved that when she had her panic attacks. Perhaps a little less drama and misunderstanding and confessing their undying love for each other and perhaps a little bit more meat in the story particularly with their two mothers may have made me love them more.
Now can I just say that Ari rocks, her character, sass and stubbornness had me laughing, crying and riveted to the pages when she appeared and Jeff was a wonderful brother.
I have added Saved which is the next book int he series to my TBR list however I will be not reading it straight away as I have a feeling we will be going down a similar route with Ari & Jeff as we did with Ellie and Gunner in that there is going to be lots of drama, double meanings, misunderstandings, hurt and then a wonderful HEA.
Oh, before I forget we also get to fast forward with Gunner and Ellie and see how they are travelling, Ellie desired to be Wanted well Gunner simply worshipped her - beautiful to see.
Thought the writer is incredibly talented and writes well. I found this story hard to read and in fact cringed. It was a romance that was based round the aged group of 18-21. And for most of it I thought the guy was so unrealistic in his behaviour to the girl. I found the thought romance dialogue adult and not that age group and certainly, though the verbal dialogue was mainly young and certainly trash talk. No young man at that age would be like the hero and girl was just dusty and pitiful.
