    Too fast

    Thank you netgalley for providing this ARC in exchange for an honest review. So I was not impressed with this novel. Both Sam and Holly meet at a parking lot and by dinner they're making out and planning to marry so she can be on his health insurance and he can show his family and friends he's not a complete loser. What!! This is the starting point of this novel and the end for me. The rest was a mindless copulation of meaningless love scenes and drama. Not my cup of tea.

    Great start to the series!

    It's been a while since I have read the "Fake Relationship" trope and now I am wondering why. This was a fun read, that I was able to devour in just one afternoon. I found myself laughing out loud and shedding a few tears as well. Sarah Robinson did a wonderful job with creating characters that made you not only like them but care about them. I am looking forward to more from this series. Sam's brother is getting married to his ex-girlfriend and Sam needs a date for the wedding...if you ask me I would just skip it but hey it's family and all so you know you have to put on your big girl panties and muddle through, well in his case it would be boxer-briefs but you get the point. Holly's family had a devastating accident and it brought her back to her hometown where she is the owner / operator of a business that does event planning which is perfect for what Sam needs in order to get Wyldfire Whiskey's launch party the talk of the town, state, country...you see where I'm going with this. Holly also cares for her sister which is becoming harder and harder since her income isn't as hefty as it had once been, maybe just maybe Sam and Holly can help one another out. I would love to say this was a second chance romance as well because Holly had a crush on Sam in high school but Sam never really showed interest in her then so I really can't but there is that feel of it because Holly's crush really never went away even after all this time. If you enjoy the fake relationship trope or even a good contemporary romance I would say grab a copy and start this series today, I see great things are heading our way with the 100 Proof Series. Happy Reading!!! **I have voluntarily reviewed an Advanced Readers Copy of this book for my Blog, Nadine's Obsessed with Books**

    Enjoyable read

    I loved the romance between Sam and Holly. Very hot! That's the good part of the story. I was a bit disappointed with some of the other elements. At times, the author tries to portray the Wylde family as close knit and loving, like when they all come together to support Holly in a time of need, but that seems at odds with the the majority of the story. Sam's younger brother Grady, who is pretty despicable, stole Sam's fiance, and Sam has been distant from most members of his family since, because they have apparently sided with Grady in this whole mess. He also states at one point that he doesn't like his brother, Sterling, who is quite rude and disdainful in his brief appearance in the story. Sam also describes himself as "feeling on the outside" and that he has that in common with his cousin Ruby. It also sounds like he has some issues with his cousin Noah, who is part owner of the distillery. This does not sound like a warm and wonderful family! I also felt like the end of the story was rushed. For these reasons the highest rating I can give is 4 stars. I am voluntarily reviewing an advance reader copy of this book.

    Steamy romance

    Wylde Fire has the feel of a small-town romance, which is one of my favorite romance tropes. This one, however, left me somewhere in the fair to middlin' range. That's not to say the story isn't entertaining, it is. And I really liked several of the characters. I do think that there were quite a lot of them introduced here, I suppose as a series starter. The problem with that is while we're getting to know everybody else, we're losing focus of the romantic couple who should be the focal point of this book. That's what I would've liked to have seen more of. I mean we get lots of Sam and Holly, and they have plenty of chemistry - chemistry between the sheets, on the table, on the desk - well, you get my point. And there's nothing at all wrong with a good, steamy romance, but I really wanted more of them falling for each other stuff than we're given. I loved the banter between them, and they felt like great friends, but lust and friendship don't mean love. It just felt like they went from fooling around and fake romance to madly in love without any of the fun middle stuff. That said, the story did keep my interest, and in addition to Sam's family, we have some angst for Holly. Angst that is sure to affect even the most cynical of us. Thankfully, that angst is tempered with wit and lighter moments, so it has a good balance. In the end, I did have a couple of unanswered questions, and I'll be interested to see if those get answered later in the series. I'm also keen to see how both the series and writing grow with future books. This one was worth the read, and I enjoyed the premise if not all of the delivery.

    Modern marriage of convenience, with a twist

    Sam Wylde has a fledgling Whiskey business with his cousin Noah and their friend Caleb. The launch party is thrown into jeopardy when Noah breaks off his relationship with the event planner, which leads to her backing out of their event and taking all of her suppliers with her to another event on the same day. Driving to the Town Hall to get some permits for the business he runs into Holly, who turns out to be an events planner. On top of this Sam is sick of his friends, his family and their acquaintances all treating him with pity after his brother and his fiance cheated on him, even worse they are now getting married and his upper class Tennessee family expect him to be part of the wedding. Holly and her family were in a terrible car accident and her sister is in a coma, requiring expensive medical treatment which Holly is subsidising from her income, but she is falling behind on the payments. Initially Sam asks Holly to plan their launch party but soon he offers something different - a marriage of convenience. Sam will avoid all the awkwardness of attending his brother's wedding solo, and the pitying looks from his community and Holly will gain access to an excellent medical insurance policy. But soon the marriage of convenience turns romantic - but can Sam get over his trust issues? I enjoyed this romance very much, the idea that the proposed marriage of convenience turns real before they even get married and that it was always intended to be a real marriage in any event was an unusual twist on the genre. My only criticism would be that it ended a little too abruptly, there was a lot of build up and then the drama petered out almost immediately, it was good that the angst wasn't drawn out unnecessarily but this was a little too far the other way. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.
