Tucker Wilde joined the United States Army right out of high school and was injured in Iraq. But more than just his leg was shattered in the Middle East. The war also crushed his spirit and damaged his soul. When a strange couple arrives at his family’s bar, Haymakers, Tucker can see signs of mental and emotional abuse and is immediately drawn to the lovely but fragile girl seated at his bar.

Gracie Parker has been a victim of abuse her entire life. When her boyfriend, Dex, beats her in the parking lot of Haymakers and abandons her, it’s almost too much for the nineteen-year-old to bear. That is until Tucker appears like a warrior knight from the darkness to save her.

Tucker and Gracie are two broken people who are immediately drawn together. But their relationship and even their very lives are threatened by Dex who will stop at nothing to get Gracie back.

If you like your trucks loud, your beer cold and your men'll love THE WILDE ONE.

My Thoughts
Tucker doesn't see himself as the knight-in-shining-armor type.  Scarred both physically and emotionally from war, he never thought he would find someone to love him and make him whole again.  This quote gives us some insight into his emotional state.  Throughout the book he is waiting for Gracie to get smart and run.


  1. He definitely sounds troubled. Great quote though.

  2. This sounds like my kind of read. Great quote... when I read it I was thinking, "uh-huh.... riiiiigggghhht" (He just wants a good excuse to touch her. lol) Thanks for sharing!

  3. So sweet quote :) Never heard about the book or read it, but sound like a great guy :)
