The Wild One by Ruth Cardello - ARC Review

She wants to go wild. A billionaire decides to go with her. 

For two Americans in Paris, love wasn’t in the plans in New York Times bestselling author Ruth Cardello’s sexy high-stakes romance.

After years of choosing safe over satisfying, a weeklong Paris fling sounds perfect to Wren Heath. And who better to have it with than Mauricio Romano, a billionaire with a reputation as a first-class heartbreaker. A few days. Fun, then done. What happens on vacation stays on vacation, right?

Paris was Mauricio’s playground, and love was never part of the game. Lust? Toujours. Then he meets a sweet woman who wants to be a sex kitten. He knows how to give her the wildest five days and nights of her life. No commitments. No strings. But the hotter it gets, the harder it is to remember his own rules.

What do you do when what happens in Paris stays in your heart and then shows up at home?

Are these two destined to clash or destined for love?

This is set mostly in Paris, so what could go wrong?

Wren and Mauricio meet over...a cancelled...dinner. Sort of.

It's a long story, it's kind of hard to explain without spoilers, and it's a pretty great if somewhat unconventional meet cute.

I liked both of them as characters and I believed in the attraction and in the relationship they were building, even when they were both pretending it was going to end in 5 days when they both left Paris.

I enjoyed the Paris settings, as, well, it's Paris and I really enjoyed that the places they traveled were put into the story as not only great places to visit but also ways to get to know one another, and it worked. Who would doubt the intentions of a man willing to get onto one of those awful hop on hop off buses? (Sorry to those who love the tours, I agree with Mauricio on this.)

I also liked that we got to really see how the relationship would work once they were at home, no longer on vacation, and no longer in Paris. It's easy to be in love in the most romantic city in the world...but can you still be in love at home?

I also liked the tease of the next book and the direction it looks like this one will head.

I enjoyed and recommend this title.
