Wild For Me
Tam DeRudder Jackson
(Balefire Series, #3)
Publication date: November 18th 2021
Genres: Adult, New Adult, Romance


Annabelle Stewart, all tight leather skirt and hot lace panties, thundered into my life for one night after a rock show and calmly drove away the next day. She should have been like any other one-night stand I’ve had over the last ten years touring with Balefire. But she wasn’t. At odd moments, I catch myself thinking about her, wondering if I made as big an impression on her as she did on me.

Then I walk into the rehearsal for our drummer’s wedding, and who’s standing with the bride? The hottie who keeps me awake with thoughts of our one night together. Beautiful, smart, and sassy as hell, Annabelle sets me on fire with her kisses and leaves me hanging. But I’ve got plans for her.


I never expected to see him again. Two years after hooking up with Dakota Perri after a Balefire concert, I’d convinced myself that night was a fantasy. But the way he looks at me during Jack and Clio’s wedding, like he remembers every second of our one-night stand, lights me up. Too bad I blew it.

Then I score a management internship with the band, an opportunity guaranteed to land me a scholarship with a top graduate program—if I don’t earn a reputation for sleeping my way to success. Which is a problem. I see Dakota every day. Every time we’re together, the sparks fly faster and hotter. If I want to achieve my goals, I have to resist him. But how can I resist a man as panty-meltingly hot as Dakota Perri when he says he’s wild for me?

Review for Wild for Me (Balefire Series Book 3) by Tam DeRudder Jackson
Rating: 3.5 Stars
Release Date: November 18, 2021
Format: eARC
Publisher: Warrior Romance Press (IBPA)

Wild for Me by Tam DeRudder Jackson is the newest addition to the Balefire Rockstar Romance series. Our lead, Dakota, is who you’d find a picture of if you searched “hot rockstar” on Google. Tall, gorgeous, and fantastic on guitar. As one might expect, his fame comes with a reputation for partying hard and a string of women on his arm. Unfortunately for fans of Balefire everywhere, he hasn’t been able to get Annabelle out of his head and his heart since their one night together. When they reunite at a friend’s wedding, Annabelle thinks her face might be familiar to him (she doesn’t actually expect him to remember her). She couldn’t be more wrong. After seeing her again, he’s determined not to let her be the one who got away a second time. 

I didn't expect to get so invested in Dakota and Annabelle's relationship. Their relationship definitely gets steamy, which was fun. Despite my happiness over the physical side of their relationship, I wanted more emotional depth and action. Why didn’t Dakota do more about Garrett’s interference? Why didn’t they have a conversation when he was getting jealous? I loved the scene where Dakota ate dinner with Annabelle’s family, and when they had their heart to heart at the end of the book. I would have loved to see more of that. 

I recommend this book to fans of the rockstar romance genre who love stories filled with characters you can’t help but get behind and happily ever after endings. This book is part of a series, but I had no issues understanding everything that was going on without having read the previous books. I plan on going back and reading the other books in the Balefire series when I have a free moment. The author piqued my interest about how the other couples in the band got together. I’m eager to read Hot for Me, which should be coming out sometime in January 2022 (can’t wait to see whether I’m right on who Tron’s love interest is). 

Thank you to the author and Xpresso Book Tours for allowing me to read an early copy of this book. I voluntarily read and reviewed Wild for Me. All opinions expressed in the review are my own and not influenced in any way.

Tam DeRudder Jackson is the author of the paranormal romance Talisman Series and the contemporary romance Balefire Series. Her favorite “room” in her house is her back patio where she dreams up stories of romance and risk. When she’s not writing her latest paranormal or contemporary romance, you can usually find her driving around with the top down in her convertible or carving turns on the slopes of the local ski hill. The mom of two grown sons, Tam likes to travel, attend rock concerts, watch football and soccer, and visit old car shows with her husband. She lives in the mountains of northwest Wyoming where she spends most of her free time trying to read all the books. Her TBR piles are threatening to take over her office, and she’s fine with that.
