Review: Born to Be Wild by Patricia Rosemoor

Born to Be Wild by Patricia Rosemoor
Romantic Suspense
Ebook $2.99 (192 pages, DEAD SEXY / ENTANGLED)
It's been twelve long years since Western rancher Micah Wild gave up all hope of being with his forbidden high school love—and the child they created together. When she tells him that their daughter has been kidnapped, they must reunite to convince their stubborn families to set aside a generations-long feud and help save their little girl. As old emotions are churned up—and love is rediscovered—Micah doesn't know how he's survived without Isabel Falcon in his life. After so many years and painful betrayals, can he win her heart again, rescue their child, and find a way for them to finally become the loving family they should have been all along?

Great writing, small plot problems... (3 stars)

Twelve years ago Micah Wild didn't fight for the woman he loved and the baby they were having together. The third generation in a feud between two families nothing could bring them back together. But when their daughter is kidnapped, he and Isabel Falcon will have to force a truce between their kin to root out the kidnapper. Years may have gone by since Micah's betrayal but a rekindling of the passion between them is inevitable. Can Isabel trust him to fight for her this time? Will they find their young daughter before the kidnapper harms her?

I'm not much of a romantic suspense reader, but I was in the mood to break it up when I saw BORN TO BE WILD. The family feud element is as old as time and always manages to be entertaining so I was really pleased with how well Rosemoor built that up and gave perspectives from both sides that made it feel real and interesting. I was glad to see Isabel and Micah trying to get their families to put what was important ahead of the feud too.

What ultimately made me not quite like BORN TO BE WILD was a mix of two things I loathe. I can't comment on the one without giving a slight spoiler warning so SPOILER-ish ALERT... Isabel and Micah rekindle the sexual side of their relationship way too soon. The last thing I would be doing if my daughter was kidnapped and possibly being molested is have sex with my ex. The second is that as the plot draws to a close and you think it's over there's another twist and another and another and so on... and it feels really silly.

As a whole, the two things that bugged me made it hard to really like BORN TO BE WILD but I loved Rosemoor's way of telling the story and will definitely consider reading her when I'm in the mood for a romantic suspense break.
