Wildwood Series – Book 2
By Skye Jordan
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…
The Hart sisters are back and Wildwood has never been hotter. With the release of the second book in Wildwood Series, Skye Jordan has turned up the heat.
Avery Hart returned to Wildwood after her sister Delaney convinced her to return home after her disastrous divorce. Avery is struggling to become a stronger woman after many years of neglect. Being an army wife had taught her how to become independent and self sufficient but didn’t teach her how to value herself. She is weary of love and commitment after her husband’s betrayal. Coming home to Wildwood is her second chance. Her chance to become whole. A chance to prove to herself that she has value.
Avery and Delaney have chosen to turn the family bar into a restaurant and catering business. Avery has a gift in the kitchen. Her pastries and baked goods are in high demand. She’s building a solid reputation in the community while the renovations are being done to the bar. She has become in high demand and is working her fingers to the bone. She doesn’t have time for romance but the sexy contractor is a big temptation. He’s proving that she is a desirable woman that deserves to have her needs met. He is also very leary of labeling their affair as a relationship. He has his own issues and family problems that have destroyed his life. Now he is responsible for taking care of his father and trying to rise above his jaded past.
Trace Hutton is a convicted felon. He spent his younger years in prison. Being a man with a record is hard enough, let alone being a business owner. He is struggling to keep his contracting business afloat. He has to go one step beyond to prove to the community of Wildwood that he is a man that is dependable and productive. The last thing he needs is Avery Hart tempting his heart.
Both Avery and Trace struggle to find their place in Wildwood. Their biggest struggle is learning their own value and accepting themselves. Once they can learn that, their relationship may not be doomed. It may be their saving grace.
The Wildwood series is one of Skye Jordan’s more erotic series. The passionate love scenes are sizzling hot. What makes this series shine is the characters. They are very strong and compelling people with very real issues. Their lives are anything but perfect. I thoroughly enjoyed Wild Kisses and can’t wait to see what comes next in the Wildwood series. There is a missing Hart sister that needs to return home to Wildwood.

Delaney Hart has come a long way from her wild youth, dating tattooed bikers at her father’s bar, The Bad Seed. But when his death pulls her back to Wildwood, California, she must stay to renovate the dive he left her. And also face the lies and secrets that sent her running ten years before.
When Wildwood’s chief building inspector, Ethan Hayes, shows up on the property, Delaney doesn’t recognize him. The last thing he wants to do is save the bar where his cousin died in a brawl. But the good boy from her past is all too willing to remind her of the bad girl she used to be. And one night of passion leaves them both in a compromising position.
The last place Ethan should be is in Delaney’s bed. Guilt, family pressure, and plans for a brewpub of his own make shutting down The Bad Seed his top priority…until his feelings for Delaney interfere. Because her future depends on the success of the bar’s renovation and his dreams are rooted in its failure, their forbidden romance may be destined for heartbreak.
Skye Jordan is a pseudonym for New York Times bestselling romantic suspense author Joan Swan. Skye’s novels are about enjoying that little wild streak we don’t let out often enough. About those fantasies we rarely get the opportunity to indulge. About stretching limits, checking out the dark side, and maybe even acting a little naughty. They’re about escape and fun and pleasure and romance. And, yes, even love, because while wicked-great sex is good, happily ever after with wicked-great sex is even better.
When she’s not writing, Skye loves to read, knit, craft, row, ride, and dabble in photography.
