Before I get into my review I must preface this by saying I was threatened with my life(a joke surly?) and someone would find me (I’m constantly looking over my shoulder) if I gave any spoilers away (I’ve signed my name in my Blood). They haven’t issue this threat before so y’all know this book is something GOOD!
Here’s the official Blurb
Nico Merryweather loves women—all women. Sure, they’re sexy and fun. But “Player” is an easy reputation to hide behind, a way to keep the good times rolling and reality at bay. He’s loud, he’s cocky, he says exactly what he’s thinking, and people just laugh it off because they think they know him. But Nico makes sure no one is close enough to know the truth. With a new season starting, he is ready to play the game he can control. They’ll all be watching Nico, the goalie, but they’ll never know the man behind the mask who is just trying to breathe. He hasn’t ever wanted anyone close enough to him to see the truth, until Aviva rams herself into his ass. Literally.
Aviva Pearce’s life is a collection of bad days all wrapped up without a bow. If it can go wrong, it will. All she wants is to run her business, take care of her sister, and keep her head above water. But with a father who is out to ruin her like he has himself and debt trying to drown her, it’s hard to stay afloat. Aviva isn’t the type to waste time dwelling on her misfortunes or to give up, though. She’s got too much fight in her. And she definitely doesn’t have time to waste on the wildly sexy, rich, showboating goaltender everyone wants. She’s got goals.
What she doesn’t know is that Nico has goals of his own.
And she’s number one on his list
Aviva pierce is a single mother to her younger sister, struggling to give her sister everything she deserves all the while keeping her head above the water in the endless sea of bills. So needless to say the last thing she needs in her life is to deal with a rich hot hockey player. But fate has a different plan for her.
Nico is living his best life. He’s got a great hockey career. He can have any girl that he wants. Except the one that hits him. literally. A simple fender bender turns into the most important chase of his life when the beauty bombshell turns him down for a date. Not used to being turned down and what he perceives as a challenge to prove a friend wrong, Nico set’s out to make Aviva his. That’s literally all the detail’s i can give you guys. Sorry not sorry. 🙂
There is something about Wild Tendy that I can’t put into words. In a good way. Like I said I’ve been threatened with my life that someone would find me if I gave any spoilers away with this book. That has nothing to do with it though I just can’t put into words just how much I’ve loved this book. It’s SO unique and so heartwarming that it just makes the inner me squee with love for it.
Wild Tendy is the first Toni Aleo book that makes me want a whole series just on Nico and Aviva. I love Toni and all her books and I would love another book or two with some previous couple. This book though. Sigh. I think it has to do with Nico. I’m rambling at this point because well you’ll have to read Wild Tendy to understand.
At it’s core Wild Tendy is book about a man who has everything he want’s and yet cant be himself for fear of public ridicule. A woman who has self body image issues who need’s to work through them for her to truly be able to have a happy and healthy relationship. It’s about finding the courage within one’s self to be who you truly are regardless of public opinion because the only person that has to love you is you. Wild Tendy’s core message is this. Be yourself.
This book will strike a cord with a lot of people. People who not only deal with the particular’s that Nico and Aviva deal with, but what ever particular issue a person is dealing with in relation to loving ones self. I am one of those people. Which is maybe why i loved this book so much. Because i could see myself in them. Through their struggles, i could relate.
I cant implore you all enough to go out into the web’s and purchase Wild Tendy where ever E book’s are sold!
