Okay that turned out TOTALLY unexpected!!! I'm LOST..I don't know what to rate this book! This is the FIRST time I've ever felt weird doing a rating for a book. It's NOT a 3 star book, BUT it's ALSO NOT a 4 star book (or maybe it is)...It might be 3.5 but that feels odd because it seems low....ARG!!! I don't know....I just don't! I LIKED it, and at som

I read about sex, I read about fucking. The overuse of certain words just annoys me at times. Leave it to our imaginations the odd time?

God, why did he have to be so arrogant and sexy? I hated arrogant and sexy. It was fucking irresistible

so what happens in this book ?

one word:


yeah, I think that summs it up all right. No, excuse me, last chapter, or 2, something does happen. Yeah that's it. Sex and plot at last chapter.

All kinds of sex. I felt like renting some movie but not porn. Like some porn for chicks, you know, flowers and shit every 30 minutes but the rest sex.

I actually liked how it started but after one scene near the beginning I could not like it any more. The same thing happens in "Fighting to stay".

Because this book was full of HOT HOT HOT sex....with a heaping helping of dirty talk!

Honestly, this had more substance then I thought it was going to...granted, it still didn't have a lot. And the storyline was rather predictable and nothing new for the NA/MA genre.

HOLY FUCKBALLS! I love Wild... OMG... Oh my fucking god… his dirty, dirty mouth was fucking awesome. I loved the exhibitionism and the naughtiness and all of it. The storyline was fantastic. The plot with the whole danger aspect came along so naturally and flowed so well. And the cover… whew… perfect visual for all the yumminess of this sexy, sexy BBF.

Kat arrives at a little town in Maine and immediately get acquainted with Lane Wild.
He is a playboy with a dark past that doesn’t do relationships. She is also a girl with secrets that doesn’t want relationships either. It all begins with one hot night, that should have been a one-time thing… but they can’t seem to stop repeating it. And with each time they fall into each other’s arms again, things between them change a little more.

“I bet your pussy is dripping wet for me, isn’t it? I bet your panties are drenched, juices running down your legs while you grind your hot body against my dick. You want me inside you?” I growled before flipping the button on her jeans and shoving my hand down her panties.

“Yes . . .” she hummed and bucked on me as my fingers found her wet slit and thrust inside her. I pumped three fingers inside her body, swirling my thumb along her hardened nub before pulling out my hand, and thrusting my fin

Wild is one of the hottest, steamiest, shmexy books of 2013 and Lane Wild is one of my all-time sexiest, favorite book boyfriends of ALL TIME. There I said it …ALL TIME. Quite the challenge, I know!

The story of Kat and Wild starts off like many other couples/stories in our favorite books but something about them is different. From the moment Kat and Lane/Wild are together in a scene the electricity buzzes off the page, they have undeniable chemistry, even though Kat refu

Holy Mother of Dirty, Hot, Slamming into you and make you melt Alpha Male.

I couldn't wait to get my hands on this book. I had such high hopes, as I love this author, and let me tell you - she didn't fucking disappoint. She took hot and said "Hell No- Not good enough, I want hotter." So, what do you get with this book? You get toe curling, lady bit tingling, and in the end, a new book boyfriend named Lane fucking Wild.

My reason for breathing. My reason for living. My reason for it all.

One night was all it was supposed to be, no names, just a whole bunch orgasms shared by two people. Kat keeps everyone at arm’s length, not wanting to get too comfortable; she wants to just live her life where no one knows who she is and where she came from. Working part time at the town library, across the street from where the man who has the leading role in all her fantasies.

Well this one turned out to be really good! After reading several reviews, I was convinced that this was definitely my cuppa.. and although mid-way through I wanted to hurl my Kindle through a window; by the end, everything made sense..

Kat has moved to this small fishing town in Maine where everyone knows everyone... she's looking for a new start. From what, we don't know yet. She's not looking for any friends and definitely no relationships... she's feist

This was one hot book.

Lane Wild is the town’s male slut. He sleeps with most willing women, with no strings attached. The women in this small town know the score and expect nothing more from Wild.

But when a sexy red head appears in town, Wild wants her. After a hot and steamy one-night stand with Wild and the mystery woman, were he didn’t even get her name, he wants another round with her.

Kat is running. From another life and is planning on starting over in a very small town in Maine

3.5 stars

Wild, that is his name. He is Wild in bed I might add as well. He is sexy and knows what he wants and it is to fuck around and nothing serious.

Well lets say the same about Kat the newcomer in town. But she doesn't fuck around I should add. She had a very too many drinks and ends up having a "one night stand" with the one and only Wild. They are both not looking for a relationship so it works for the both of them. Kat is running from something in her past. You get that right off the

Super-Hot from beginning to end...

Lane Wild & Kat had this unbelievable chemistry from first encounter and we got front row seat's to this uncontrollable Lust from the get go.. I enjoyed Kat's Sassiness and Lane's Alpha tendencies..

So if you’re looking for a Quick Super Duper Hot read with a delicious dirty talking Alpha and a Cute Redhead that can dish it right back look no further..

Phew – this is one seriously hot read. I really do enjoy me a dirty talking hero and Lane Wild is a seriously FILTHY talking hero and I loved every second. I think I’ve read everything that Adriane Leigh has ever published and I’ve always considered that she does the steamy side of romance very well so I was delighted to see her totally playing to her strengths in Wild and writing a full on erotic romance. Let me tell you – this is smokin’ hot!!

My only complaint is it was too short. Nah, not really. It was just right. Lane, Lane, Lane...Wild is a perfect last name for this small town bad boy. But that all changes when Kat Kennedy comes to town searching for anything, then getting mixed up with the likes of Lane. But she gets more than she can handle. Both of our MCs are running from a painful past...can they find hope and happiness together? They get along just fine, better than just fine, and once Lane starts in with his dirty talk, K ...more

This book well yeah this book will make you say all the shit I just typed LOL

Wild is as Wild does! Holy fucking (no pun intended) moly! If this book doesn't turn you on in some way or another, make you wanna grab your man or your toy or whatev. I just, I just don't know. Jesus what the fuck did I just read oh yeah sex/fucking, sex/fucking sex, sex, sex and did I mention sex/fucki

So I wasn't going to read this book. I knew it had a huge pet peeve of mine in it. I'm in a epic slump though and picked it up. HOT DAMN am I glad I did.

Total smut and I loved it.

Quick hot read and I can't wait for Ridge's book!
Zakirrah BookBlogger

Soo the title kind of says it all huh? This book was wild ,from the steamy scenes to the drama and passion.I picked up this book thinking it would be a light read that would get my mind off of a book that wrecked me. After seeing the reviews being quite good I thought I would check it out.

Lane Wild is pretty much a player, he doesn't do relationships and he is up front about it. Living in Maine his whole life he is well known and adored. One night a fiery red head catches

Sugar, SPICE and oh so fucking everything nice!

Sugar ( Kat ) + Spice ( Wild ) + Everything nice ( what the hell there’s no nice here just an amazing amount of dirty smutty sex ) = AMAZING BOOK!!!

OMG, I mean OMG, the fucking dirty talker had me on my knees begging him to come out of the book and be real. How can a girl resist an alpha male with the most perfect dirty mouth you could ever imag
2.5 stars
The plot is not exactly creative, and with some questionable WTF things done by both hero and heroine(view spoiler), I'd have to say that this one was just okay, and kind of nasty in a bad way, during a couple of moments.

As the ending came
4.5 stars. Nice juicy read. Dirty talker and hot!

Big thanks to Adriane for an ARC copy for review.

Wickedly sexy




This is what comes to my mind when I think of Wild after reading this book. I thought Adriane's The Mourning After Series was hot, but I have to admit the temperature rose to scorching levels with this new couple, Lane and Kat. The sexy scenes and dirty talk is enough to get the heart racing.

"Fuck, baby." I lunged at her, fisted her hair in one hand, arched her head back. I tugged and her eyes flared as a
The Hopeless Romantics Book Blog
Wow Adriane Leigh, wasn't this book just full of surprises!!! Don't get me wrong, the synopsis already had me sucked in but I definitely got so much more than I bargained for. Yes "Wild" was an erotic romance but there was mystery, suspense, drama by the bucket loads and an action packed finale that had me on the edge of my seat... like I said... soooo not expected but definitely the icing on the cake.

Lane Wild was my lovable rogue. He didn't do relationships, he had sex... he fucked for want o

If you’re a fan of a dirty talkin’ man, you’re going to want to one-click this puppy! Holy smokes. This is probably one of the hottest books I’ve ever read. Wild had a naughty mouth on him, and I loved it!

I really enjoyed the premise of this book–a one night stand you have every intention of never seeing again. Until he pops up around every single corner, but what else can you expect in a small town?
