Deep breath. That is exactly what I had to do when I finished reading Roaming Wild by Tracey Devlyn. My heart was beating out of my chest and I almost couldn’t blink or read fast enough for fear of missing something near the end of the book. Devlyn writes a dark, romantic suspense filled with evil villains that make you shudder but balances it out well with a romance between life long friends.
Roaming Wild is Evie Steele’s story. If you have read the other books in the Steele Ridge Series you have met Evie already and know she is the youngest sister of four brothers and a sister. She doesn’t back down from things easily and is sick of being treated like a little girl. As the best friend of Evie’s older brother, Britt, Deke Conrad has played it cool with Evie, not wanting to mess things up. His job as a Special Agent takes him away for long periods of time and requires him to keep secrets. Evie is just starting her nursing career. Deke is a decade older than Evie and would like to start a family. They are in different places, according to Deke and just doesn’t think it will work. Evie won’t give up.
Devlyn writes a very creative mystery with many different connections and somehow keeps it all straight, allows the reader to easily follow along, and entertains us from start to finish. She really takes your emotions on a ride, so make sure you are ready! Devlyn always brings me new and exciting careers for her characters and I end up with a new appreciation for things in life that I know nothing about. In this story, she teaches me about wildlife trafficking. I didn’t even know there was such a thing. Nor did I know about Special Agents other than those in the FBI or CIA!
The romance between Deke and Evie is fun to watch. It’s not super flashy or sexy, but it fits the two of them and how long they have known one another. I love Evie’s tenacity and Deke’s soft spot for Evie. He doesn’t even stand a chance. It was a nice give and take between the two of them with a few passionate moments that were exactly what we needed to give us a break from the evil Harwood family. If you are looking for an original, emotional, romantic suspense give Roaming Wild a read.

She’s loved him forever…
The last thing traveling nurse Evie Steele expects to find aboard the RV housing her mobile health clinic is her brother’s best friend. As always, Deke’s close proximity stirs her forbidden desires and long-suppressed dreams. But his sudden reappearance in her life and curious interest in her patients makes Evie wonder what he’s hiding.
…but now his secrets could destroy them both.
Special agent Deke Conrad is in big trouble. Not only does he have a thing for his friend’s little sister, but what should be a routine mission is turning into a tour of temptation and survival. He fooled himself into thinking he could keep the beautiful and dynamic Evie in the dark while he used the cover of her Med Mobile to track down a merciless wildlife trafficker. But he didn’t anticipate the lure of her scent or the warmth of her smile…or the string of dead bodies littering their path.
When Evie winds up in his enemy’s crosshairs, Deke must unleash every weapon in his arsenal to save her, including his heart. But will he be too late?
