Which is a sad with a title like that.

So I'll just drool over Jared for awhile, even though he's bored too.

The Wild Ones (The Wild Ones book 1)
Wild Child (The Wild Ones book 1.5)
Some Like it Wild (The Wild Ones book 2)

There's Wild, Then There's You (A Wild Ones Novel) - M. Leighton

I have no idea why I'm surprised with how wonderful this book was - I loved the last book I read by this author & I guess I just forgot how lovely her work is. I was only disappointed in the cover - since I got an ARC, I didn't get the amazing cover that is pictured here - I LURV the whole black & white with only a touch of color thing! The story itself was incredible. I even loved the back & forth POV between Jet & Violet. The pacing was spot on and the characters were well thought out. The only thing I though the story could use was a little more about the conflict between Jet & his mother. I get the gist of what the issue was but I think it would have resonated even more if it could have been spelled out a bit - maybe in a conversation he could have had with Violet? The sex was hot & steamy - just the way I like it! And the emotional angles definitely packed a wallop! And even though I really don't like the 'new adult' sub-genre, I will definitely be reading more from this author - she opens my eyes to something new in each book! 

FTC Advisory: I won a copy of this book through the GoodReads First Reads program. No compensation for my review was given.

There's Wild, Then There's You (The Wild Ones, #3)There's Wild, Then There's You by M. Leighton
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

There is no other author that can make me feel as indecisive and fickle as M. Leighton can. Every book, every time, I always finish saying that it's my favorite and the best she has ever written. But it's true. Her writing style is the same. The reason I buy her books without even reading the back is that I know there's always going to be a happy ever after, and her characters are always relatable. But with each book she writes, she reaches a new depth and complexity that keeps you coming back for more. You want to see what she's going to come up with next. This one is no different.

Violet is a fixer. She tries to fix everything and everyone, but she doesn't want to pin all her hopes and dreams on one person and give them the power to wreck her like her mother did her father. I love that she doesn't believe anyone is beyond help, and she is determined to help Jet, just from a distance. While Jet is handsome and charismatic, she sees that he is just a guy, that he is human like the rest of us. He's surrounded by alcohol, and his drugs of choice are women and music. He's not happy with who he is, and is trying to find a way to be a better person. Even he sees that Violet can help him. He didn't know what his type of girl was until he met Violet, but seeing that they met under false pretenses, they have to find a way to work through those lies to who they really are and what they really want. Everything about their story is gripping, and it has a hold of you through the entire book.

I stuck so many post-it notes in this book that I had to run to the store for more about half way through. They were so many remarkable parts that some pages got 2 - 3 notes each. It's witty and playful, and I love the banter between Violet and Jethro (that name makes him so human!! It could not have been better!!), they just seem to have this ease between them that is enviable.

Violet is my girl. If any character Michelle has written has ever been relatable, it's Violet. You want her as your best friend, sister, any way you could have her, you want a Violet in your life. There's not one thing I don't like about her. I love them both, but for me, she's the exceptional part of the story.

Some of the things I love:

Tia. Dear God, I don't think I could handle a friend like her, but she's a RIOT!! Some of the stuff that comes out of her mouth is priceless!!

I love that Violet reads to escape. Just like the rest of us, reading is her drug.

I love her daddy. He's human and broken. Sometimes he can't see the hurt he's causing her, and even when he can, sometimes that's not even enough to get him through his pain. But he comes through for her and himself. That to me shows he's stronger than he realizes.

My favorite line from the whole book: "When I made love to you, I did it loving you with the heart that YOU changed." *sigh* So romantic...

If you have read this review, you don't need me to spell it out that I think this book is wonderful. You definitely need to meet Violet and Jet!!

There's Wild, Then There's You (A Wild Ones Novel)
There's Wild, Then There's You (A Wild Ones Novel) - M. Leighton I enjoyed reading this book, it started out slow for me it took about the first third of the book for it to hold my attention and get to the romantic part. I felt there was a little too much background info and some repetition of scenes. Overall, I enjoyed it and would read more books by Ms. Leighton.
