Zeke Dugan is not a man who walks the straight and narrow. He may have sworn an oath as a trauma doc, but he has zero problem leveraging his medical skills outside a hospital if it means giving the Brotherhood—the group of men he calls family—an advantage. Blood before business. All that changes when shy Gabrielle stumbles into his life and ignites his protective instincts.
Mechanic Gabrielle Parker prefers the complexities of an engine over men. Her life wasn't always quiet and well-ordered, but now that it is, she finds peace in the solitude. When a robbery in her neighborhood forces her out of her safe bubble, she never fathoms that a dangerous, cocky trauma doctor will fix more than her injuries.
Zeke doesn't play by the rules that Gabrielle follows but knows that he's exactly what she needs in her life. He'll show her the fierce and uncompromising protection that comes from belonging to a man like him.
When tension outside the Brotherhood threatens Gabrielle, Zeke will do anything to keep her safe, and damn the consequences. No one will hurt his woman, even if it means putting the very men who saved his life at risk. 

I found Wild & Sweet...different. Not in a bad way, just not really a story that I'd normally read. I missed the first book in this series. While it can be read as a standalone, I think I would like to find the first book and give it a read. 
I found the concept of the Brotherhood to be a different type of story as well. All these guys found each other at a time in their lives when they needed family. It's kind of like a club that you have to be invited into. They sit removed from others, and then when they invite someone along, that person is shocked and in awe of their luck. I thought it was a little bit strange. Anyway, moving on.
Zeke is a trauma doctor, and Gabrielle is a habitually shy mechanic. They meet when her brother Danny is talking to the guys at the bar one night, and he gets a phone call from Gabrielle. There was a break in at the neighbors, and she took a good push. Zeke is a character I liked for the most part. I have a couple of issues with Gabrielle. She seems to have a serious issue with thinking everyone around her is going to leave. Her parents are gone, and her brother is all she has now. She also jumps to conclusions without understanding all the elements, and she can be a little bit judgmental. I get it. Life can be traumatic, but there are times when I kind of found myself thinking- Seriously? 
I liked Zeke, I didn't hate Gabrielle, and I enjoyed the side characters. All in all, aside from a few small issues, I enjoyed Wild & Sweet. If you like a pack of alpha males, and a shy heroine with maybe a little bit of separation anxiety, this story is for you.
