Reviewed by Foluso Falaye for Readers' Favorite

Dr. Alexandra Wilde is fully dedicated to her work as a critical care physician for children in different countries, including Haiti, Mongolia, and Botswana. In Botswana, she happens to meet Ian Devall—a rich, charming, and ill-mannered philanderer who threatens to wear down her defenses and destabilize her well-organized life. Her good friend, Rox, would not let her be her usual, closed-off self as she encourages Alex to explore her desires. It doesn't help that Ian happens to be much more than just a playboy as she gets to know him better. Is Alex ready for a new adventure or content to stay in her cocoon? Find out in HK Jacobs' alluring and sparkling debut romance: Wilde Type.

Like a book from a veteran writer, HK Jacobs' debut novel gripped me right from the start and kept me glued through its sensational narrative. I enjoyed every bit of it: the complex and well-developed characters, the unpredictable and highly entertaining developments, the intricate medical details, and the hilarious conversations. I loved the characters and couldn't get enough of Rox's spontaneity. Wilde Type's brilliance lies partly in its vivid descriptions of different entertaining events, like the trip to Paris, the luxurious dinner parties, and the wildlife tourism. Wilde Type made me laugh, cry, sigh with satisfaction, and think deeply as it combines several themes that represent different parts of life: natural disasters, loss, health problems, desire, wealth, travel, healing, career, tough life choices, and more. Wilde Type is recommended to readers who love romantic stories with a bittersweet plot, a lot of drama, and a rewarding ending.
