    Wild Spirit is wildly satisfying!

    Wild Spirit is part of Mari Carr's Wilder Irish series, set in the Collins family universe in Baltimore. It's a fantastic friends-to-lovers story, about Yvonne Collins and Leo Watson. Leo is a year older than Yvonne, and became good friends first with her cousins Lochlan and Colm when he moved to their high school, and then Yvonne. While Yvonne had a huge crush on Leo then, Pop-Pop's advice helps her focus on their friendship, and the blessing that is to them both. More than a decade later, that friendship has held them in good stead. Leo's life has been a bit of a roller coaster ride, and the responsibilities just keep stacking up. Yvonne can see the toll it's taking on him, and determines that it's her job as a friend to remind him how to relax, the Collins way. Along the way, that long dormant crush reawakens, and it's a real pleasure to see Leo and Yvonne negotiate the changes to their relationship as it takes on new direction and depths. Mari Carr does an incredible job of letting us get to know Yvonne and Leo, and those close to them. We get to see their comfortable and comforting friendship as well as the chemistry that explodes as they take a chance on more. Yvonne's a smart, generous, determined woman and a loving friend. Her steady care for Leo gives him the freedom to enjoy their bond and explore the possibilities of MORE. Leo's no dummy either. He's a loving father, devoted son, and takes each of his responsibilities seriously. When he able to cut loose though? Let's just say that Vonnie's fortunate to be on the receiving end of that deliciously focused attention. Wild Spirit is a sweet romance with plenty of heat. It's the perfect addition to the Wilder Irish series, and a great prompt to re-read this warm, funny, sexy series again!

    Friend to lovers

    Yvonne and Leo were a breath of fresh air! Friends forever, all it took was one little nudge, and the chemistry between them exploded, and they both were onboard with it. Life kept throwing one thing after another at Leo, but that seemed to be the pattern in his life. Both were willing to push against that rising tide of responsibilities and timing that seemed destined to keep them apart. A few set-backs along the way, but patience and persistence paid off. One thing that couldn’t be denied, Leo needed his Vonnie in his life to keep things free and wild!

    Friends to Lovers in all the best ways!

    So much goodness! Loved Leo & Yvonne. The Collins family. Steamy, sweet, witty, and heartfelt. A very satisfying read. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Loved it

    I love anything that Mari Carr writes. That's why I was anxiously awaiting her newest book, Wild Spirit. Wild Spirt is another story in the Wilder Irish series that focuses on the Collins family. This is Yvonne's story. Yvonne has had a crush on Leo since she was a teenager. But Leo had eyes for another girl. Yvonne felt destined to forever be in the friend zone. Leo made plans to marry that girl but it turned out that she was pregnant and she didn't feel the same about Leo. Leo still vowed to be a part of his son's life. To Leo, life is all about working hard to help his family farm and to support his son. He sees Yvonne often and wishes he could have a relationship with her but he holds fast to his other responsibilities. Yvonne loves life. She works hard helping to cook for her family's restaurant and bar. She sees Leo often and wishes she could play a bigger part in his and his son's life. When tragedy strikes Leo, Yvonne jumps in to help. Leo may insist that he can do it all on his own but Yvonne knows that sometimes people just need a helping hand. As their friendship grows, can it evolve into more or will continued tragedy drive Leo further away? Wild Spirit is part of a series but it can be read by itself. But I'm sure you'll love it so much that you'll go back and read the other stories.

    Love the Collins clan!

    I just don't know how Mari Carr does it, but the stories in this series just keep getting better and better. Just when I think I've read the best story ever, she goes and does it again. The next installment of the Wilder Irish series revolves around Yvonne and Leo. She's had a crush on him since their school days, but he had eyes for another. Jump to the future and he's a single dad almost running on empty, with demands from family life. But Yvonne helps him to see that a life of chaos is not necessarily a bad thing. Wowsers and who would have thought that Leo was a bit dominant, totally had me drooling. These characters are so lovable, Yvonne tells it like it is (but she likes when Leo gives her order in the bedroom), she's funny and full of sass. Leo is very serious, but Yvonne does her best at getting him to let loose. I loved everything about their story, the Collins clan can do wonders for the soul. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced copy of this book.
