Wild Thing - Anne Stuart
Enjoying a holiday yesterday gave me time to finish Anne Stuart’s Wild Thing and start a new book. Wild Thing is a book about a doctor hired to study a savage man found in the woods believed to be some sort of missing link.
I was worried before starting this one because the theme just didn’t appeal to me, I guess one Tarzan was enough for me. But as soon as I started it I could not put it down.
Dr Elizabeth Hunter arrives on a deserted Island where millionaire Ed Hunnicutt has built a modern facility to study the wild man found on the woods. As soon as she arrives she feels some sort of attraction to the wild man and decides to help him escape. The trouble is he decides to take her with him. The action is a lot more fast paced once they are on the run and it's hilarious how Libby tells him everything and we are already guessing that there must be a twist somewhere to explain the mystery.
This book read like an adventure romp and you do have to suspend your disbelief at such an outrageous plot. But the truth is that it worked for me! I had great fun reading it and because of that this a B+.
