Today's Special - - Wild About Her Wingman Blog Tour

Secret Wishes - Book 3
By Robin Bielman
Publisher: Entangled Bliss
Release Date:  April 14, 2014

Adrenaline junkie, and acknowledged town mischief maker, Erin Watters has no interest in marriage.  After the college boyfriend she thought she would marry ripped her heart out and stomped on it, she tucked the vulnerable organ back into her chest and has guarded it closely. But while Erin may not want a lifetime commitment, after witnessing the happiness of her friends who have found the loves of their lives, Erin is warming to the idea of finding a boyfriend. Once her friends discover her change of mind, all bets are off or, rather, one bet is on.  

If there's one thing hot rescue paramedic Troy Strieber dreads it's his turn to grocery shop for the station.  He's not too keen on helping Erin find a boyfriend either but for a two-month reprieve from grocery shopping he'll gladly sign up for wingman duty. After all, how hard could it be? Erin's hot, smart, nice.  If she didn't lead such a reckless lifestyle he'd go after her himself but that way lay tragedy and heartbreak.  He'd walked that path once and has no desire to do it again. Besides, he'd come back to Cascade to help his twin sister and young niece after his brother-in-law's unexpected death.  They were his first priority now.  

Troy takes his wingman duties seriously.  He's determined to win this bet in record time so what's with these twinges of jealously that sneak up on him when Erin appears to hit it off with a guy? And why does Erin find herself comparing her boyfriend candidates to Troy and finding them lacking?  The more time these two spend together on the great boyfriend hunt, the more they like one another.  And the more they like one another, the more they open up and get to know each other below the surface level.  They're surprised by what they learn.  But will those parts that they normally keep hidden beneath the surface be enough to move a growing affection into a deeper emotion or will they be the evidence that proves they are each destined for love...with someone else.  

This was my first Robin Bielman book and I thoroughly enjoyed it.  Her writing sparkles and the characters are realistic, likable and make me want to move to Cascade so I can hang out with them.  While there's plenty of humor in this story, there's also a satisfying depth of emotion. Troy's scenes with his niece are especially endearing.  Bielman also had the patience to move Troy and Erin's relationship at a believable pace and infused enough sexual tension into their relationship to leave me satisfied, even though the sexual heat level in the book is mild with any action taking place behind closed doors.

The second book in this series, Her Accidental Boyfriend is a 2014 RITA® finalist for Best Short Contemporary Romance.  I've downloaded it and am looking forward to a return trip to Cascade for both this story and the first one, Kissing the Maid of Honor.  

So, tell me.  Do you like your romances mild or spicy?  Or, like me, do you enjoy a bit of both?  Have you read Robin Bielman's books yet?  What are you waiting for?

  1. I like them both! sweet and spicy are exactly robin's books and I love them all!

  2. Hi PJ! My shoes are off, I'm very comfy, and I'm staying a while! Thanks so much for helping me celebrate my new release! And huge thanks for the wonderful review! I'm so happy you enjoyed Troy and Erin's story - you've put a big smile on my face! :D

    Have a great day and weekend!

    1. Kicking off the shoes is usually my first step in getting comfy. :)

      Congratulations on the RITA final for Her Accidental Boyfriend! Will you be at the conference this summer? Signing at the literacy autographing? Have you started shopping for a RITA dress? Inquiring minds want to know! *grin*

    2. Thank you so much!! Yes, I'll be at the conference this summer. I'm very excited! I'm not sure if I'll be signing yet. I'm on the waiting list so fingers crossed! I haven't started shopping for a dress yet - I'll probably do that in July, when it gets a closer. And can I just say, I'm sweating just thinking about how nervous I'll be on awards night!

  3. Hmmm, I have to admit, I like romances...I can handle any kind with the caveat that many use, as long as it is written and done well. NOW, I have another author to love and look up. Thanks PJ! I am excited to read both of the books, they sound like my cup of tea. AND I am going to the conference and hope I get to meet all the authors that PJ has turned me on to.....!!!

    1. Hi Hope! Thanks so much! If you do check out my books, I hope you enjoy them. I really had a blast writing them. And please be on the lookout for me at conference! I'd love to meet you. :) Thanks so much for stopping by here!

  4. I have not read any of your books, but I'm looking forward to reading them.

  5. Hi Carol! Thank you so much! Happy reading!

  6. I have not yet read any of your books, Robin, but from this review, it seems I will have to rectify that. I like the relationships between characters to grow and develop at a believable rate. I have never cared for books where the characters meet in Chapter 1, and by page 40 are hot and heavy into a relationship. A good, well rounded character takes time to develop. We need time to get to know them and how they relate to the people in their lives. I like a little bit of spice in the characters' relationship, but do prefer that they take their activities in that part of their lives behind closed doors.

    I hope this series is doing well. I will be looking for them.

    1. Hi Pat! Thank you so much for checking out my books! I appreciate that very much. I think my Secret Wishes series might be right up your alley. (Not all my books close the bedroom door, but these do!) I'm with you on loving to read books where the hero and heroine's relationship takes a little time to develop. That way when they do realize how much they care about each other, it's even better. Who are some of your favorite authors? I'm always looking for new authors to read, too. :)

  7. I like anything from mild to spicy if the story is good. ;)

    I've read this whole series and loved it. Robin is a doll, too. Check out her books. You won't be sorry!

    1. Aw, Marcy, you are so sweet. Thank you!! I'm so happy you loved the series! :D

  8. Hi Robin,

    I haven't read any of your books yet. I am and avid reader and I do like to try new authors. I will look for this book.

    I'll read mild to spicy. It just depends on my mood for the day. As long as it's not too raunchy, I'll read it.
