My Review:

Welcome to my stop on the tour for the second installment in the Wilde Boys series, Claiming What is Mine! I am so sad to say that I did not read the 1st book and even worse, I had not read anything by Abby Brooks or Will Wright until now. Let me just say that I have seriously been missing out. This novel is about Gabe and his life running a farm with his brothers, and the unexpected return to town of his high school sweetheart, Meredith. Now in their mid-thirties, Gabe and Meredith reconnect at his brother’s wedding, and now Gabe wants to convince Meredith that he was wrong to walk away from her so many years ago.
The first thing that pleasantly surprised me and that I loved about Claiming What is Mine, is how funny it is! Gabe is absolutely hilarious starting from the first few lines of the novel and had me laughing out loud several times. Not only is he funny, he has a very realistic rapport with his family, he’s sweet and caring, and absolutely sexy! Meredith was also funny in a quirky way, beautiful, loving, but confused about starting her life over in her hometown after a divorce. The spark between them was immediately noticeable, despite the 18 years that they had been apart.
Another thing I loved about this novel is that there is plenty of plot development and conflict without anything overly dramatic occurring. There are definitely obstacles that both Gabe and Meredith have to face and challenges regarding the future of their relationship, if any, and what kind of relationship it would become. However, there are no major disasters or moments that make you question the characters true selves or intentions. Gabe was forced with learning how to let go and not always trying to make up for mistakes in the past, whereas, Meredith struggled to reclaim independence without pushing others away.
I’m so happy that I was given the opportunity to read and review this novel and absolutely look forward to reading more from these authors in the future!
