What It’s About: 

Runaway corporate princess, Lyssa Baylor, was born with a silver spoon in her mouth.
But that’s not what I’ll be sticking in there.

LYSSA
Freelance princess hunter, Mason Macintyre, thinks he’s so tough with those bulging muscles. He thinks he’s so smart with his plan to tame me. Well, I’ve got news for him. They don’t call me Wild Thing for nothing.  I’ve been playing unruly princess my whole life and I’m not about to stop now.
MASON
This was supposed to be a simple job. Catch her and bring her in so she can be married off to the son of a family friend. But once her father realizes the man he hired to reform his unruly brat of a daughter won’t be able to handle her, he blackmails me into completing the job.No one blackmails me, I don’t care how rich and powerful you are. Her father might be untouchable, but Lyssa isn’t. I’m gonna touch her all over and punish her so hard, that forced marriage will be her only way out of my little princess reform school.

***Intended for mature audiences***

WILD THING is a sexy story of a runaway “princess” and her reluctant Prince Charming. A tantalizing tale of forced marriage, and a hero who doesn’t know he’s a hero until he meets the girl he was meant to save.

 My Thoughts:

Wild Thing starts like a classic steamy bodice-ripper, but it quickly morphs into something more.  Something more like a psychological thriller with all the plot twists for which author J.A. Huss is known.

This installment of the author’s Naughty Things series is more naughty than nice (pun intended).  It is narrated in a dual POV, and one narrator is not reliable!  I will say that I was skeptical at the start, but having read most of the author’s work, I quickly discerned that there was much more to the story than one first believes.

Mason Macintyre is a bounty hunter in need of some big bucks fast.  He takes the job of bringing home the wayward wild child (Lyssa) of a daddy-got-rocks.  The “kidnapping” seems like a legit bring home the child situation until things get weird, as in a Twilight Zone meets Eyes Wide Shut sort of way.  There is some kink, and there are some really sweet moments.  Overall, there is a lot of crazy that takes some sleuthing to figure out.  In the deducing and sleuthing, a Prince Charming is born–so to speak, and he needs a princess to save from a fiery dragon.

This ain’t your typical childhood fairytale, but perhaps a fairytale reimagined for a mature adult audience.  Wild Thing is a quick and captivating read!
