About the Book:
Newly divorced, Avery Hart returns home to Wildwood eager to take on her dream opportunity and transform her family’s dive bar into her own bakery. The contractor for hire isn’t just a master with his hands—he’s big, built, and wears a tool belt like nobody’s business. Despite being an ex-con, Trace Hutton is irresistible. Too bad he’d never go for someone as inexperienced as Avery.
Trace needs to focus on the job at hand, not daydream about smearing icing all over the sexy baker…and licking it off. This job is the key to getting his construction company back on its feet after his time in prison. Besides, no one deserves a fresh start more than Avery, and she certainly won’t get that with him.
After a delectable night of passion (and pie), Trace craves something more. But he’ll be damned if he’ll let his checkered past crush her dreams. And as Avery starts to realize how Trace fulfills more than just her physical needs, she struggles with whether to let her history decide her future, or explore the wild new possibilities of forever…

Book two starts pretty hot. The thoughts of Trace was so hot that it could melt the polar caps in Antarctica, the same can be said to Avery. Both are equally attracted to each other, but the situation they are in are somehow not favorable. An ex-con and a newly divorce woman, both are trying their best to pick themselves up from what ever hardship that made them the way they were. And from my POV, both of them are meant to be.
I love how it continues, how the lives of people that were on book one is presented. I love how it was made. How Trace did his best to be the man he once, but still becoming more stronger that he was before. I love Avery, for her strength, her willingness to risk her heart, and her love for baked good. Yes, I love that part. I was one of those reasons why I read this in one day.
Wild Kisses shows us that we can live our life no matter how the past colored us. The past is there, but it is the present that counts. People will look at it, but if you do your best to be the person you want to be and not the person that everybody thought you were, then you will live a good life. There maybe people that will try their best to judge what you were, but in the end, its more about what you believe in.
I look forward to the 3rd book. I wonder, how will Ms. Jordan present the 3rd sister?
Skye’s New York Times bestselling novels are all about enjoying that little wild streak we all have, but probably don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we usually don’t get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, playing naughty and maybe even acting a little wicked. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance. And, yes, even love, because Skye is ultimately a romantic at heart and a happily ever after kinda gal. Skye also writes romantic suspense as Joan Swan, weaving fast paced novels of passion, danger and suspense.
Skye is a California native recently transplanted to the East Coast and living in Alexandria, Virginia, just outside Washington DC with her husband of 25 years. She has two grown daughters in college in Colorado and Oregon. In her free time she loves rowing on the Potomac. She’s always learning, attending courses and seminars in art and history and cooking.
