    1. Picked this up as an e-book freebie a few weeks ago. I loved the grandmother and her police officer/private investigator grandson, but the female protagonist was "big feeling." The number of times in this book that I wanted to slap her were too many to count! I would have much preferred a story about the grandmother only and her romance!!!

    2. OMG!!! The heroine is a sanctimonious, arrogant know-it-all and the way she treated her sister right from the beginning was so irritating to me!!! After that, I could not enjoy anything about the story, I was too focused on her and the fact that I disliked her so much Such a shame, the hero had so much potential :(

    3. This book sounded reasonable, but I spent the whole time wondering why the hero was putting in so much effort trying to get the heroine to date him. At first she avoids him because of a embarrassing incident when she was 13 even though she's now 30. Liz finally starts using Ryan for a booty call by arriving late at night and leaving before he wakes up in the morning. She spends the entire book avoiding dating him because she'll risk her heart due to the well known fact that he doesn't do love. H [...]

    4. Great book! Kylie Gilmore's THE OPPOSITE OF WILD was a well written story of Liz Garner and Ryan O'Hare unexpectedly falling in love amidst a handful of quirky, oftentimes hilarious, secondary characters and well, life. I was lucky enough to listen to the audiobook version and the narrator did a fantastic job. The varying nuances for each character were clear and contributed to my enjoyment of the story.Mostly I loved that this story was in no way cookie-cutter or predictable. I thought it would [...]

    5. So excited to read another amazing novel from one of my most favourite authors, Kylie Gilmore. Here with another exciting series, Clover Park, The Opposite of Wild. Such a fabulous romance between these two such different people. I thoroughly loved each and every character to make this book such a great hit!First and foremost in Ryan O'Hare's mind was that he knew he needed someone to help and care for his Nan. She had surviving a freak accident when she was sideswiped on a busy road by a truck. [...]

    6. A Fantastic Debut!The Opposite of Wild from debut author Kylie Gilmore is the opposite of dull. It’s a delightful, fun, fast-paced read that will have you literally LOL-ing in many places. When her flighty sister shows up on her doorstep and announces she’s pregnant, schoolteacher Liz Garner is reminded of the loud ticking of her own biological clock. Seizing the opportunity to have a baby in her life, Liz puts all of her control-freak efforts into helping her sister, including taking an ext [...]

    7. I received this book from the author in exchange for a honest review.My Thoughts: This was an OK read for me. I really thought I was going to love this book. The Heroine: She was really annoying. She has always pined away for the hero, but never pursued him. When he shows an interest in her, she takes on the guy's part. She uses him for sex only. She was convinced that he could never change his playboy ways. He should have had more self respect for himself and dumped her.The Hero: He has known t [...]

    8. This is the 1st book I read by Kylie Gilmore. The only I liked about this was granny. I didn't like Liz character. I thought she was kind of bossy & immature. I didn't like Daisy character either. I thought she was immature too. If this story was about granny I would have been funny.

    9. Couldn't make myself like Liz she is just not likable. Her borderline obsession at the beginning with her sister baby was just disturbing like her sister was bringing her a puppy in 9 months. And it's supposed to be a romance but there was nothing romantic about the fact that Liz treats Ryan like a Booty Call the whole book in till like a few chapter before the end. I could go into more detail about all the things she did to frustrate me but I ended up deleting that review because it became a lo [...]

    10. I really enjoyed this one and will absolutely be reading more in this series. Liz, the lead female character was a tad annoying at first with her control freak tendencies but she eventually won me over. The book is full of fun quirky characters who will have you laughing in no time. Liz has avoided Ryan for years after "the humiliation" when they were younger but now she needs a summer job and caring for Ryan's Gran is her best bet. She's an uptight control freak and he's a no strings loner, tog [...]

    11. In her debut novel, Kylie Gilmore gives us a highly amusing, sweet, sexy and very enjoyable read. Even though I wanted to throttle Liz at the end because of her excessive OCD, if that’s even possible, I identified myself with her almost from the start and luckily Maggie (you’ll love her!) got across her very important point. The story and individuals felt very genuine, even with Ryan’s take charge, caveman behavior and it left us with the promise of more.

    12. I absolutely loved this book! Ryan was dreamy, Liz was repressed, and their interactions are hilariously explosive! The characters feel real and likeable, and this was such a fun read! It did beg the question, early on for me - which came first, the chicken or the egg? When you read it, you'll realize why that question had me snorting in laughter!

    13. So corny it hurts. No one has conversations like this. But bigger question, how can you be in love if you don't talk. After Liz realized she was "in love", her and Ryan had nothing but uncomfortable silent moments. Sex doesn't equal love. The addition of a baby, which coincidentally isn't hers, should not result in the deadening of a social life. Ugh this book was dumb.

    14. Sweet and endearing romance in my opinion, nicely written and developed. Perfect summer add to your romantic reading list!

    15. This is a great book! It's a sweet romance that's part of the Clover Park series but is a stand-alone. If you're like me sometimes cliffhangers get old and a you need a Happy Ending.

    16. This is the first book I've read by Ms. Gilmore and I am hooked and need to read the rest of her series. I enjoyed the fun flirty banter, the heartwarming family aspect, and the characters that Ms. Gilmore created. Maggie (Gran) ranks high up on my 'who I want to be when I grow up' list. She's grabbing life by the balls and forces her grandsons and others to join her, much to their dismay. The main couple, Ryan and Liz, are polar opposites who have known each other most of their lives. In school [...]

    17. I enjoyed this romance. The characters are quirky and flawed and I think most of us can relate to at least one of them. Whether it is the quirky and outgoing grandmother, the solid and dependable Ryan, the over organised Liz or the wild and needs to grow up Daisy. There are lots of connections hinted at in this book and I look forward to reading more of the Clover Park series.

    18. Really fun story and so cute. Perfect summer read. This one flowed really well and the characters were very believable. I would have liked a little more, but overall it was very entertaining.

    19. Meet Liz, a prim and proper 30-something who wants a baby so bad that when her way word older sister comes in pregnant and ready to pop she starts acting like its her kid. When her sister can't take it and leaves to live her own life, Liz hooks up with Ryan, a big she had a crush on in middle-/high-school for a casual sex-only relationship. But she falls in love And since Ryan doesn't want the kid, white picket fence, and dog fantasy, she leaves him. But it's ok, because her sister is back with [...]

    20. Posted on What I'm ReadingOkay, I liked The Opposite of Wild by Kylie Gilmore, but I have a few reservations about a character. That's a problem in itself, because she's the heroine. Yeah, that can't be good. Lets dive into my thoughts on this story.So, we have Liz Garner who is Type A scary. Seriously, she has to be in control of everything and I don't know where it all stems from, because it's not like she had a horrible childhood. What I gather she had a normal childhood other than the one em [...]

    21. I wanted to give one star, but I actually finished the book so for that, I gave it two. The heroine has three strikes from the very beginning of the book. The fact that Liz harbors such intense animosity about a person she hardly knows, Ryan, because of incident that happened 17 years ago when she was an overweight 13 year old at the pool, gazing up at his eyes as he sits in the lifeguard stand. The second strike came when her older sister, Daisy, tells Liz that she's pregnant, and Liz completel [...]

    22. I tried, but just couldn’t do it. This book vascillated between dull and inane. The heroine, Liz, used to be a big girl but after a humiliating incident she became a control freak who monitors everything she eats and organizes the heck out of everything in life. She’s straightlaced and dependable. PI and ex-cop Ryan hires her to serve as a companion to his Grandma who’s trying to live life to the fullest after surviving a car accident. So many things about this book irritated me, but I’l [...]

    23. Ryan's family I knew right off the bat was going to entertain me especially his gran, "Ryan couldn’t believe his eyes. Gran wearing leather chaps in a Harley shop, talking about her a**. It was a living nightmare." Being a detective means Ryan always is on his 'A' game and notices everything, "you seem so…uptight,” he said. She stiffened and took a step back. “But I know you were checking me out when I was mowing.” He's persistent and keeps at things until he gets what he wants, “for [...]

    24. a man works taking photos catching cheating spouses. his 72 yr old grandma took his motorcycle out for a spin so he wants to hire a babysitter for hera woman teacher, her sister preg shows up a her house. she has a lot of debt so the sister is going to get another job to help with bills and raising the baby. she applies for the caretaker job but knows the grandsone gran wants to buy a motorcycle but she talked her into a convertible insteade sister moved out of state so she really doesnt need th [...]

    25. This book was only ok. The main characters really had NO chemistry and there was no real story of their love. Liz's big drama that had shaped her life seemed REALLY minor to me - even from a preteen/teenagers standpoint. I have to say, if I knew Liz, I might have to slap her and shake her often. I don't know how Daisy could stand her for even a minute. It was all just too much and I didn't get enough of the stuff that would make me love her.I'm not sure about this author's writing style. I want [...]

    26. The Opposite of Wild is the tale of a methodical little sister, Liz, who has bailed her older sister out of more sticky situations than Liz has ever been in. Family drama ensues when Liz discovers that her sister Daisy’s condition requires a lifetime of responsibility. The problem solver, Liz is ready to take on the challenge of motherhood and help Daisy raise the child despite her teaching position. Money for the new baby is Liz’s top priority over the summer. Discovering the identity of th [...]

    27. Liked the middle section of this book when Daisy had left because it was only then that Liz became bearable and I was enjoying her burdgening relationship with Ryan. Unfortunately, as soon as her sister and the baby were back in the picture, Liz become a terrible character and clearly revelled in playing the martyr, sacrificing her relationship for no reason other than she'd decided no one could possibly get by without her divine intervention!! During the last part of the book I couldn't work ou [...]

    28. Okay, so here's the deal - I could've been all over this book if the heroine wasn't such a walked all over stick in the mud. Ryan was the only saving grace for me, and even at that, he wasn't enough to overcompensate for how much Liz annoyed me. She couldn't stand up to her sister, Daisy, and allowed her to walk all over her and abuse the kindness that Liz offered. I get that Liz wanted to help Daisy, but there is a such thing as personal responsibility. Liz acting like Daisy's responsibility wa [...]

    29. The book was alright, and a quick no-fuss read, but the characters fell flat. Liz was clueless to most things happening around her, and at times overbearing. She just needed to let others live their lives. It's wonderful she wanted to help her sister, but even after being warned the first time, she took over. Ryan was likes me, but again, flat. Maggie was the best part about the whole book, but even her parts seemed rushed just for the shock value of Ryan. It was a quick read, but in not sure I' [...]
