Instant Gratification

Instant Gratification is the second book in Wilder Adventure series by Jill Shalvis. From the back cover.~


Wishful, California, is 3000 miles from Dr. Emma Sinclair’s last job in a New York City ER. It may as well be another galaxy. Here, running her father’s clinic for a summer, Emma treats bee stings, stomach flu, and the occasional pet cat. Plus, she has to contend with patients like Stone Wilder: gorgeous, laid-back, and irritating beyond belief. The man laughs at her. A lot. And Emma loathes him. All except that tiny part of her that wants to throw him on her examining table and break every doctor-patient rule in the book…

When Stone tries to help Emma learn to loosen up a bit, he pictures white-water rafting or scenic mountain hikes. Not a mind-blowing affair that shakes them both to the core. Emma’s sure she has no place in a town like Wishful, but Stone know different. Emma belongs here-in this town, in his life. And convincing this strong-minded, stubborn, sexy woman of that fact will be a challenge no Wilder man could resist…

I’m a huge fan of Jill Shalvis and she totally delivered once again with Instant Gratification. Stone is a super-sexy alpha male all the way…unless he needs to have a shot or stitches. He all but passes out at the site of needles and believes all things medical could be fixed by putting a band-aid on it. Dr. Emma Sinclair is used to the pace of the New York City ER, so coming to Wishful means is a big adjustment for her. When Stone comes in injured and needing stitches, Emma won’t just let him put a band-aid on it. She also find herself incredibly attracted to Stone, in a way she has never been attracted to anyone. Stone is equally attracted to Emma and wants to help her learn to like Wishful, maybe even enough to stay. Stone and Emma fight their attraction for a while, but they are explosive once they give in to their attraction. However, since Emma has no plans to stay in Wishful, and Stone has no plans to move to New York, it seems like their relationship can never be more than just a temporary thing.

I loved Instant Gratification so much. It picked up right where Instant Attraction left off and was a winner in my book. I’ve already read Instant Temptation, the third and final book in the series and will post about it tomorrow. I highly recommend this series to anyone who likes strong women and super-sexy alpha men.
