REVIEW : Wild, Crazy Hearts by Melissa Foster

High school teacher Brindle Montgomery and rancher Trace Jericho have been close friends forever and on-again off-again lovers for years. As rebellious as they are stubborn, they’re both perfectly happy with their no-strings-attached hookups. But when Brindle returns from a trip to Paris with a baby bump, it sends Trace’s wild, crazy heart into a frenzy–and Brindle is left wondering if she’s made the biggest mistake of her life.

I said it before and I’ll say it again. You’re my best friend, and you have been my lover forever. I’m not going to let anyone think you’re any less important to me than you always have been, including you. You’re a pain in my ass, but you’re the only woman I’d let drive me crazy.


I have been waiting for Brindle and Trace’s story since finishing Trails of Love and the wait was completely worth it!

Brindle returns home from France pregnant. Needless to say her family and her on and off again lover were completely surprised. Of course, Trace doesn’t take the news well and kind of lashes out at Brindle. 

Their relationship started when they were 13 and 15 and has continued throughout their adult lives. They have had so many ups and downs. I swear they have one of the most intense relationships I have ever read about but you can’t help but sit back and enjoy the wild, crazy ride they take you on. There are so many feelings and emotions involved with them and they, well mostly Brindle, are afraid to admit how they really feel. 

I couldn’t put this story down. I was completely invested in their relationship and was rooting for them the entire time. I love how involved their families are and the town of Oak Falls. Everyone is completely #TeamTrindle and not afraid to show their love and support. I love how invested EVERYONE gets when it comes to the baby, too. 

Trace, that cowboy is seriously swoon worthy! He may not be perfect when it comes to his relationship with Brindle but he definitely made up for it in the end. Watching his and Brindle’s relationship change and grow as they learn to work through their faults and hang ups is truly something magical. 

Though this is the 4th book in the series it can be read as a complete standalone, but the rest of the family is well worth the reads! Saddle up and get ready to enjoy the wild, crazy ride that is #TeamTrindle.
