Wild Card by Staci Hart

Wild Card (Roseville Ramblers #1)
by Staci Hart
Published April 5, 2024

The hot baseball player I’m forced to stay with for my best friend’s wedding is off limits.

Remy Winfield has more muscles than manners, and he’s on a mission to get me into bed by way of the filthiest mouth I’ve ever wanted to kiss. He doesn’t care about my long time crush or my certainty that we’re finally about to happen.

Remy's sure I’ll break first and kiss him, and he’ll tease me to the limit to make sure I do. I might be a Lady, but I can still play his dirty little game. It’s perfectly safe, totally harmless.

Until I fall for him.

Suddenly, Mr. Long-Time Crush doesn’t matter at all.

And my best friend can never know.

Jessa is in Tennessee for her best friend's wedding and for her chance to finally win over the fourth person in their friend group, Henry, the man she's had her sights on since eight years old. The spectacularly built man she's stuck staying with is just eye candy, a little fun to tease, nothing to pull her away from her family's grand plan for Henry. Except, Remington "Remy" Winfield brings out the best in Jessa in ways she could never imagine, she finally feels like herself, and Remy too experiences a sense of rightness. As wedding plans are underway, the two embark on a challenge of sorts, one that continues to raise the heat on the chemistry burning between them.

"...she seemed like a woman who was together all the time, in all circumstances. And I was left with a rush of desire to see her undone."

Wild Card is truly such an incredible release from an all time favorite author of mine. The romantic comedy with filthy spice that I didn't know I needed. A fresh love story from Staci Hart that is somehow just like her and also something new and fresh after a lengthy hiatus. I loved Jessa and Remy, each has always just stuck to what everyone else thought of them, but their walls came down with one another. The prim takes a back seat for fiery sass and Remy's playboy brashness becomes an alpha man with a crush he cannot help but tease. The match was lit and it was fireworks each time these two got going. In classic Staci Hart fashion, there is witty banter between these two that is natural, realistic, and laugh out loud funny. We also get some angst, because connections can't be that easy, and a twist that positions this novel as book one in the Roseville Ramblers series.

Y'all, it has been a minute since I stayed up all night reading, but Wild Card was absolutely un-put-down-able. Staci Hart said she was back and she came with the heat. Full of Chemistry and laughs, as well as a good old fashioned bet, Wild Card was such a fun read, or as Remy might say, like fun romp in the hay.
