Wildcard: Volume One by Missy Johnson Review Tour


That's the number of women I've shagged in the last twelve months.

I'm Ryder Stevens.

Don't pretend you don't know me. I'm a god.

I'm hot, I'm British and I take what I want. I'm also the number one ranked tennis player in the world. But it's my off court antics that gain the most attention. I cruise through life, running from one scandal to the next. Hell I can't even take a piss without the world knowing about it.

Rules? Who gives a shit?

Rules are there to be broken and I'm the king of breaking them.

But even the king can be bought to his knees. I'm sidelined with an injury that changes everything.

Maybe my life isn't so perfect after all...

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, it's a quick read that I lost myself in.

Ryder Stevens is a professional tennis player. The best player in the world. He is selfish, egotistical, a womanizer, he doesn't respect his sport or the other players. When he suffers an injury that forces him to take time away from the court and his sex life he doesn't know what to do with himself. Finding a fan letter that has a child calling him a butthead. With nothing but free time on his hands he decides to call Jake and let him see for himself that Ryder isn't a jerk. Ryder calls but gets Jake's mom, who refuses to let him talk to him. Can Ryder make her understand that he isn't totally like the guy the media plays him out to be?

I can't wait for part 2!!

This is a very enjoyable start to a new series from Missy Johnson. I am a huge tennis fan, and it is not difficult to imagine such a player as Ryder (although the chances of him being British are sadly all too slim!). The set up for him to meet Scarlett is clever and gives the reader plenty of background in a very short space of time.

The plot is hot, funny and cute - and with that cliffhanger ending, need the second installment releasing as soon as possible!

Ryder Stevens - British tennis player ranked number one in the world, bad boy with a different woman every night. Ryder makes no apologies for the way he is but I like to think the "accident" he suffers early on in the story is a little payback for his womanising ways.

I loved the way that Ryder meets our heroine Scarlett. It was original and cute and made for a fun story.

Be warned, this is the first in a trilogy so we do get a cliff hanger at the end of volume 1 but it is easy to see it coming. I'm looking forward to volume 2 to find out what happens next.

Wildcard is my first Missy Johnson book and so far I'm enjoying myself. I don't read too many serials as I find it hard to review just part of a story, so I tend to wait until all of the parts have been released and read them back-to-back. That said, I found this installment to be an enjoyable beginning to Ryder and Scarlett's story. Ms. Johnson has done a nice job of mixing humor with just the right amount of steamy scenes to have definitely snared my attention. Knowing that Ryder is a player, I will admit that I was expecting more of a revolving door look into his sex life. But the author took the book in another direction and I'm quite pleased with the story so far ... except was that cliffhanger ending really necessary? That really is a rhetorical question as I know that cliffhangers come with serial territory. I am definitely ready for part two now.

Missy lives in a small town in Central Victoria with her husband, and her confused pets (a dog who think she’s a cat, a cat who thinks he’s a dog…you get the picture).

When she’s not writing, she can usually be found looking for something to read.
