Title: Wild Loving
Broke and homeless, Eliza Hart is at the end of her rope. She’s spent the last year of her life trying to evade a dangerous stalker. In desperation, she turns to the man she once loved, the man who walked away from her without a backward glance—Rabb Hatter.
Rabb is shocked when Eliza shows up at Hatter’s—the club he co-owns with his brother—looking for a job. He’d left her and hadn’t looked back when he’d thought she’d cheated on him with another man. Now he discovers that not only did Jason Ware lie, but he’s been stalking Eliza the whole time. The spark between them certainly hasn’t died, and when Rabb learns she’s lost everything, he’s determined to protect her. But first he must overcome the pain of their past and convince her she’s right to trust him with her heart.

Eliza Hart is on the run from a stalker. She has no money, no job, or a place to live. Desperate, she goes to a man that she had once loved but he had left her without a word. She hopes that what they had together will be enough to get him to give her a job in his club.
When Rabb Hatter sees Eliza enter his club he’s stunned. He had left her the previous year when he found out she was sleeping with someone else while they were dating. He was angry and didn’t bother to see if the allegations were true and had been nursing a broken heart since then. But when he sees her, thin, in threadbare clothes he can’t turn her away. And when he finds out he was lied to and she is on the run from a stalker, he knows that he will do anything in his power to keep her safe and get her away from a madman.
I enjoyed Eliza and Rabb separately and together. She had her pride but when Rabb dug his heels in about keeping her safe, she would give in to him. He said it best when he said “there’s a difference between being independent and letting pride get in the way of safety.” When they get together (which I felt happened a bit too soon but I like a bit of build up) things progress pretty fast. It was helpful to know they had dated before but it wasn’t that serious. Just light dating with some groping but nothing official or overtly sexual. Rabb was s delightful mix of alpha and goofball while Eliza was stong but also warm and inviting.
This is a good story. There wasn’t a big mystery since we know from the beginning who the bad guy. What we do get is a very character driven story that focuses on the relationships of the people with a healthy amount of page time devoted to steamy sex scenes. There are some interesting side characters, Rabb’s brother and fiance, his parents, the detective and the private eye. I loved the how the author played with the Alice in Wonderland theme throughout the book. THe character names, decor, ect. All of it was interesting.
