Release Day Review and Giveaway ~ Wildcard by Missy Johnson



That's the number of women I've shagged in the last twelve months.

I'm Ryder Stevens.

Don't pretend you don't know me. I'm a god.

I'm hot, I'm British and I take what I want. I'm also the number one ranked tennis player in the world. But it's my off court antics that gain the most attention. I cruise through life, running from one scandal to the next. Hell I can't even take a piss without the world knowing about it.

Rules? Who gives a shit?

Rules are there to be broken and I'm the king of breaking them.

But even the king can be bought to his knees. I'm sidelined with an injury that changes everything. 

Maybe my life isn't so perfect after all...

My Thoughts:

This was just the first part of the story and it was over very quickly. There was a lot of dirty talk and sexy scenes.

It focused on Ryder, a professional tennis player who was a male lothario.

The highlights for me were 
  • The book being in the male POV ( very nice change of pace!)
  • Jake's letter :-)
  • Ryder falling on his a** (he deserved it)
  • The change in his character while he was talking with Scarlet
I enjoyed this quick read. It was a nice change of pace to have the male point of view and deal with a tennis player instead of one of the usual careers.  

The downside:
  • Ryder is a bit of a jerk. (that seems to change though!) 
  • It ends in a major cliffhanger. 
  • The second part won't be out until later this month. :-(
  • What is up with that ending????
If you like naughty boys, lots of sex, and cliffhangers then you should read this now. If you like the first two but not the last, then I'd wait until the next book comes out and then read it. If you don't like any of those things, then clearly this book isn't for you!

I received an ecopy of the book in exchange for my honest opinion.  It was a nice change and I enjoyed it.

  1. not my style and even if i was tempted ( which i wasn't^^) the cliffhanger would be a out for me
    though teh male point of view was a bonus point for sure

  2. What's the hardest thing about writtng a book. I have a WIP ab
    Nod find the dialog the hardest.

  3. Hm.. I'll wait til the 2nd part comes out then possibly. It is a nice change of pace to get the males POV.
