Can’t Wait Wednesday – LUCY ON THE WILD SIDE by Kerry Rea
“Waiting On” Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted at Breaking the Spine, which encourages fellow bloggers to spotlight upcoming releases that we’re excited about. It is a meme that I have loved participating in since I first started blogging, but as Jill is no longer actively posting, from now on I’ll be linking to Can’t Wait Wednesday, hosted by Tressa at Wishful Endings, which is a spinoff of the original WoW meme.

My selection for this week is LUCY ON THE WILD SIDE by Kerry Rea. Kerry Rea’s debut novel, The Wedding Ringer, was an absolute gem of a book, one of my favorites from last year. For that reason and because of this entertaining synopsis, I can’t wait to get my hands on a copy of her new rom com. It sounds like such a fun read!
LUCY ON THE WILD SIDE by Kerry Rea
Publication Date: September 13, 2022 by Berkley Books
A charming and wildly funny new romantic comedy by Kerry Rea, author of The Wedding Ringer.
Lucy Rourke has two great loves in her life: the gorilla troop she cares for as a primatologist and the laundry list of reality TV shows she watches to escape the fact that her actual love life doesn’t exist. And like a reality contestant gunning for the final rose, Lucy’s laser-focused on one thing: getting promoted to head keeper. So when a wildlife docuseries hosted by hotshot TV personality Kai Bridges chooses her zoo as its summer filming location, she sees an opportunity to showcase her beloved gorillas to the world and land a starring role in her department.
When Kai and his film crew arrive, however, it’s obvious to Lucy that Kai cares more about sky-high ratings than the gorillas, and he considers her a camera-averse know-it-all whose wardrobe consists entirely of khaki. But she’s surprised to discover there’s more to him than his rugged good looks and cheesy catchphrases…and that maybe a promotion isn’t the only thing she wants. But when secrets from their pasts threaten to complicate everything, Lucy discovers that happiness and success aren’t the same thing—and that finding joy just might mean getting a little wild.

I just got approved for this one yesterday and I AM SO EXCITED. Rea last book was a big hit for me. I am sure there will be elements I loved there in the new book. Hope it’s a hit for both of us
