Kelly Siskind is an author I can count on to bring me both laughs and feels. Her humorous dialog is amazing. So are all the crazy but easy to relate to situations she comes up with. The stuff she came up with for Stud was pretty awesome.
Ainsley was a woman people would guess to be shallow from looking at her from the outside. She wasn’t, though. Ainsley was an incredibly nice and smart woman who did right by those surrounding her. She wasn’t perfect, but her flaws made her even more attractive as the heroine of the story. I liked her immediately. A couple of my favorite things about her were her crossword puzzles, and how she looked up words and their meanings to use in certain situations.
Owen was a man trying to move on from a tricky divorce. All he wanted was peace…and a piece of Ainsley. Well, at first that was what he wanted. The more he got to know Ainsley, the more he realized they had in common.
Owen and Ainsley were a great match. They complimented each other so well. I liked how their relationship built. They connected over humor and sharing their experiences. The things they learned about each other were endearing. If they were a real life couple, I could imagine them going the distance.
I loved Owen and Ainsley, but I do have to admit that Emmett stole the show more than once. I wish that he had gotten his own book. I would love to read his and Cameron’s story!
Stud was a great addition to the One Wild Wish series. I love that it was part of this series, but so different from the first book. Ainsley was Rachel’s friend, but their stories didn’t mirror each other’s. Ainsley’s was entirely her own. They were also set in the same city, but in completely different setting and situations.
Overall, Stud was a fun romance with a deep connection. The romance was sweet and the dialog was filled with witty banter. I laughed and swooned so much. I highly recommend it to readers who enjoy romantic comedy.
