He’s the best man and I’m the maid of honor at our best friends’ wedding. They both warned us off each other. Together, we’re dynamite. How long till we get burned?
All my life, I thought I was the wild one, but little did I know someday I would meet my match. His name, Tucker Philips. Fun fact, he’s Chicago’s number one womanizer. And as of recently, my kryptonite.
The first time I lay eyes on him was at our best friends’ bachelor/bachelorette party. Minutes after I swore I was done with men. FOREVER.
Yes, I wanted nothing to do with the one species who manipulated and broke my heart multiple times in the past anymore. Been there. Done that.
Until he happened. And wreaked havoc all my plans.
And surprise, life also has its own plans ready for us. Very specific plans neither of us saw coming. And that could mess with our seemingly perfect lives.
As our friendship blossoms, Tucker decides we should be together. For real. No more games. No more hiding our relationship from our friends. One problem, though. With my dating history, I’m not ready to give in and let the attraction we share consume me.
No matter how cocky as hell he is or handsome and devilish he looks in his tailor suits, I won’t listen to my traitorous heart. I know his type. And it spells “trouble” in big bold letters.
Between us, Tucker Philips isn’t the only wild one, and I can hold my own.
I’m about to show him I won’t fall for his ways, because I master the game too.
If he wants a chance, he’ll have to play by my rules too.
Can Tucker follow up with me, or will he declare game over before our relationship has even started?

I’m so invested in The Carter Hills Band series - and most of these books have chewed me up and barely put the pieces back together after finishing them (especially all of Dahlia’s stories)…. Even saying that, I wasn’t prepared at all this time. The blurb mentions nothing about where it goes, how it turns on it’s axis - there’s a huge plot twist. I’m pretty sure tears were streaming down my face from about 52% until “The End”! Wild is a tame title for Addi and Tuck’s tale.
Be prepared and forewarned - while the first half is fun, flirty, and lighthearted, and the story could come to a close at that point (the halfway mark), Snow writes beyond where the fling might normally conclude and both parties go on their merry ways, and she really digs into the deep issues, feelings and harsh reality of coupled-up life. About what happens when they decide to stick together and truly try to have a relationship after discovering the little accident that happened the night of Dahlia and Nick’s engagement party (when they got black-out drunk…. After betting each other who’d be the first to get a girl back to their room. You know). Even when it comes out not to be the case. Or maybe?
The story continues all the months later as relationships and friendships are truly tested, ups and downs and highs and lows… when the family history of mental illness comes out to haunt and sometimes it’s just too hard to get out of bed and function and do life as an adult and - (here’s the trigger warnings not mentioned anywhere; depression with a family history, parents leaving kids behind, post-partum depression, it all makes for a heck of tear-jerker story). They have to figure out if they can all carry on and stay and try to make it work as a family, after fighting so hard in the beginning. Watch out for your tears with their tears, your low mood and feeling everything they are (mark of great writing to feel all their emotions fully)!
I definitely do recommend this read, especially if you’re a fan of the series. But!make sure you’re in the right mental head space to read the second half about a big struggle with depression before getting into that, first! This is my trigger warning for the second half! First half, fun and light, second half, heavy and gets you in the “feels”!
I received an advance copy from the author and all feedback and review is my honest opinion. Thank you, Emmanuelle!
Oh my gosh, I loved Tucker and Addison. They have off the charts, crazy good, chemistry, right from the beginning. I thoroughly enjoyed their banter, and their crazy schemes. Their story will have you feeling all the emotions, there is some 𝕕𝕖𝕝𝕚𝕔𝕚𝕠𝕦𝕤 spice, heart break, growth, and everything in between. This book covers a hard situation, that I think many women can go through, but it is beautifully done. Emmanuelle wrote these characters in such an amazing way that they felt real. It felt like you were right there experiencing what they were. I adored Addison and absolutely fell in love with Tucker. This book is completely captivating and I could not put it down.

He's the best man and I'm the maid of honor at our best friends wedding. They both warned us off each other. Together we're dynamite. How long till we get burned.
This is book 7 of Carter Hills band series but can definitely be read as standalone.
I hv read other books in the series but this one is by far the best one written by the author.
Tucker and Addison are relatable characters. Their issues are what people today face..the challenges and hardships being burnt by past relationships, unhappy childhood, commitment issues are all relevant and we can empathize with them.
Both the MCs are wild and dynamic which is evident from their chemistry and boy this one was super steamy🔥🔥🔥& Ms snow has written them perfectly.
A lot of serious topics about mental health awareness like depression, PPD are touched upon with authenticity and full justice is done ending with a positive outcome.
Tucker Philips has become a new favourite for me!!
I just wish the length of the book was reduced a little as I found it a bit long as I prefer slightly shorter books.
WOW! That was one hell of an emotional rollercoaster ride that I never wanted to end! Right from the very start I was taken on a heart wrenching journey of pain, healing, passion and love between two characters that have been hurt deeply but are ready for more.
Tucker and Addison’s whirlwind love story was filled with so much passion, chemistry and heartwarming moments. They have this instant attraction to one another that was undeniable and explosively hot. Their back-and-forth banter was filled with innuendos, quips and flirtiness – and I was all for it. These two fell hard for each other and were pure fire when together.
Beautifully written story that puts our hearts through the wringer. With all of the emotional ups and downs, heartbreaking truths, past pain and anger, Addison and Tucker show us that second chances can happen and when they do sometimes, they make us stronger, love harder and end up happier because of it.
Thank you to Emmanuelle for sending me this ARC <3

Tucker is a gorgeously hilarious, fun and free spirit with a secret about why he chooses to keep women at a distance. Addison is a feisty bundle of mischief wrapped in a hopeless romantic with secrets of her own. To heal her heart, she’s sworn off men. It just so happens that the one walks in on the exact same day.
I’m in awe of Tucker’s character development from witnessing him in Whiskey & Country to his story in Wild!! It’s precious watching him pour his heart out and fight for Addison but her reactions weren’t always my fav 😅 He did rush sometimes but his heart was in the right place. I understand Addi’s self-preservation but there were times where her choices made him second guess himself (resulting in her own self-sabotage).
Overall, I enjoyed their journey to happiness and it was definitely deserved! I also loved Dahlia & Nick’s cameos, they really added to the story!! The first half of the book was amazing but as soon as it started to seem real, Addison seemed to run away. Got a bit of whiplash in the middle because of the hot and cold but it worked out in the end. Their banter, cheeky challenges and raw love are everything and I can’t wait to continue reading this series ☺️
