J *I did it all for the nookie.The book nookie*

Mentally. Emotionally. Exhausting.

Maya, Maya, Maya....

Lord help me, I wanted to strangle you.

On My Knees was a heavier, slower-paced read. It was very well-written. I just got a bit frustrated throughout the book.

The story begins with Maya and Cameron in college. Cameron is home on leave from the military and is spending the Spring Break week with Maya. It's evident that they are very much in love with each other. But when Cameron "proposes" to Maya, Maya says

This is my third Meredith Wild read and my first bump up to 5 stars for her. I absolutely love Meredith's writing style and how she draws you in and really makes you feel for the characters. Even when they are doing things, or making choices that make you want to shake the crap out of them, you get it!!!

This was no different. I absolutely loved watching Maya grow and learn who she was and what she wanted out of life. Cam was delicious, and strong, and delightful.

The story is about a
This is my first book by this author and I was pleasantly surprised by how invested in This story !

This was a beautiful book on second chances which I am a sucker for. I loved the chemistry and it was a perfect bled of sexy and sweet to satisfy any romance reader. There were plenty of obstacles and wrenches thrown into their path but I really enjoyed Cameron and Maya's journey back to each other. Where they belong. I'm openly sighing now. I love sexy sweet

If you read Meredith Wild's Hacker Series, be prepared...this is NOT the Hacker series. Cameron and Maya's story is sad, heartbreaking, frustrating and a reunion that you aren't quite sure is ever going to happen.
After turning down Cameron's proposal, Maya lost herself. She drank hard and partied harder. She didn't get attached to anything other than the drink in her hand and that suited her just fine. You get the sense she is operating on auto-pilot and isn't really living. You just want to g
I had the great pleasure to preview a copy of On My Knees. It will be released in two weeks time, at which point I will buy the official copy. My review is based on the beta.

The prologue in its entirety is available online at Please read it to get a taste of what is to come.

I don't want to give any spoilers or ruin the experience for anyone. I really enjoyed how Meredith formatted this book. We get both Maya's and Cameron's point of view.

I am going to say two things right now about this review: it will be long in its praises, and will not do this phenomenal book as much justice as it deserves. (I am being honest. My words just aren't as good.)

Are you ready to hit the ground running? Lace up your shoes and be prepared to run, because once you start this book, you won't be able to put it down until the very last page. It's going to suck you in, but you will be oh so glad it did. I had the incredible opportunity to read On My Knees

On My Knees by Meredith Wild is a slow paced emotional journey of second chances and love. This book focuses on Cameron and Maya reconnecting after five years of separation. During the past five years, Maya was left broken and an empty shell of her former self. Her spirit and heart was broken when she turned down Cameron’s proposal. Now, five years later, Maya and Cameron are reunited in New York. After so many years, the

Waiting Game by Banks
Why this song, you ask. Well let me tell you… because this entire damn book is a waiting game!

Is happiness going to ensue? No… fine then.

Okay, how about now? No? …Seriously?

Now? Still Nada.

Now?!! WHAT DO YOU MEAN NO! GOD DAMNIT! My life is black abyss.

description (<—- I mean this in the best way possible.)

Anyways, other than that I love the vibe. Love the sexy, almost suspenseful bass that leaves you on the edge of your seat. Like your waiting for something

Meredith Wild has done it again!

This is not your normal rich billionaire mogul love story. This is the story of possibility and how powerful undying love can really be; this is about Maya and Cam, their love, their love lost and the possibility of their love rekindling.

5 years after saying 'no', several deployments later, the stresses of working on wall street and the alcohol abuse the heartbreak was still present for both Cam and Maya.

When Maya Jacobs isn't working her daily 9-5 job on Wall S
Julie Hurley will need a box of tissues with this book....I felt like i was having every emotion that the characters were having... This is a must read book..if i could give it more than 5 stars i would....
I fell in love with Meredith Wild's writing through her Hacker Series, and she hooked me again with On My Knees!

I was completely captivated by their story before the prologue was even over. I just knew I would need plenty of tissues handy and I was right. The way Meredith sucks you in immediately is amazing. My heart was broken before the book even began and very, very slowly, she put it back together through a beautiful second chance love story.

Cameron might possibly be the most patient and un

OMG!!!!!! Once again Meredith Wild has knocked it out of the park with this new book series :)

From the first chapter you get sucked into Cameron and Maya's story.

I love the way Meredith developed each character and their back story, it kept me wanting to read more and not put the book down. The interaction between Cameron and Maya was so well written, I loved how we read Cameron's take on things as well, it gave more depth and understanding to the story. Especially since men are way more compli

I can't even express how much I loved this story! That being said, this was definitely not a beach read. This was a turn off the phone, lock the doors, climb inside and don't come out until you've finished the journey kind of story. It could be heavy at times, and heartbreaking, but was so real and so honest I couldn't put it down! I love that we finally have a sexy hero who is an everyman...while the billionaire playboys are fun to read, I really believed that I could go out and walk down the s ...more
4.5 STARS!!!

On My Knees is a heartfelt story about love and second chances. It will draw you in from page one and not let go until the very end.

I know what you’re thinking based on the blurb… boy and girl meet up again after 5 years, there’s a bunch of I-miss-you’s and I-love-you’s thrown around, and happily ever after right??? Nope, not that simple. And, THAT is exactly what makes this story so wonderful. It’s not simple, and it’s not light.

Maya and Cam realize five years is a long time, it ca
I have come to love the way Wild makes me feel. I'm mean seriously she makes me pissed, happy, sad, and just plain ole emotional. It's great. I read to escape my hectic crazy life, and to escape to something so….beautiful it's beyond heartwarming.

I love how Wild doesn't do the romance where it's well just plain cookie cutter I guess you can say. You know the kind where boy meets girl and they fall in love and live happily ever after. NO! Yes, there is a boy and a girl…but it's not all perfect.

Meredith Wild did it again!! I started the novel with the prologue and it was totally hot! By the time I was done with Chapter one I was completely hooked.
Maya is a loyal love bird at heart, but when life turns upside down her demeanor changes. She drinks just to black out and forget the world. The life she lives is Strong, Confident, Sexy, and Naive, but when love returns she starts to question everything. Only time will tell if she opens up for her happy ever after.
Cameron is a stiff, straigh
If you loved the Hacker series you will love this! IMO it is a different feel than the Hacker series and yet just as gritty, sultry and sassy.

Maya and Cameron took me on a roller coaster ride of emotions throughout the book. Since it is told from both point of views, you know the insights and intricacies of the characters actions and emotions. It truly pulls at the heartstrings of anyone who has ever experienced young love and the heartbreak associated with it.

Bound By Books Book Review

This was the first book I've read by Meredith Wild, but it won't be the last.

Maya and Cameron had what most people only dream of finding...problem is Maya is still in school and Cam is in the military...home on leave and he proposes and Maya turns him down...he doesn't know the secrets she's hiding, and she can't face telling him.

Ms. Wild has a wonderful knack for characterization. I can picture Cameron and Maya both, and yeah, I'm kinda jealous of a fictional character! Cam is top shelf BBF mat
As a fan of The Hacker Series, I was compelled to read this book. Ms. Wild has created another story that has both heart and heat. One of my favorite things about the characters she creates is that fact that they truly come across as real people as opposed to the ideal man or woman. They have flaws. They have issues. They make mistakes. They second-guess themselves from time to time. This makes them highly relatable to readers because we can identify with them.

In true Meredith Wild fashion, she

I have been in love with Meredith's writing since I first got my hands on the Hacker series. This my friends, is not the Hacker series, be prepared.
On My Knees had me sucked in from the first chapter. The way that Meredith describes the characters and the feelings they are going through is so captivating. It pulls you right in.
Maya and Cam's relationship is so beautiful. But at times I was hanging on the edge of my seat anticipating what was going to come next. I really honestly don't know ho

What a powerful, beautiful, utterly captivating story about love and second chances.

A story so beautifully written you felt like you were right in the scene with them. Characters so well developed that you felt every single emotion they did and connected with them on a more personal level.

The author did an outstanding job presenting us with a fully developed plot line and characters along with her eloquently writing, the words just flew right of
A slow emotional well written book that I loved. Maya and Cameron have a history one filled with love and heartbreak, the start to any great love story. Five years have pasted and they haven’t spoken to each other until they run into each other. Cameron wants to move forward but Maya isn’t so sure. This book is beautiful full of every feeling and the chemistry is on point. I love stories of second chance and this one takes the cake as my new favorite. There were times that this book had me breat ...more
Another Meredith Wild great! I loved this book! Maya and Cameron are a wonderful, complex couple trying to find their way back to each other after an unresolved break-up years earlier. This story is filled with such angst as both Maya and Cameron try to fight demons from their past in order to move forward. It's an emotional rollercoaster ride filled with love, regret, anger and sorrow that you can't help but get caught up in and feel every emotion with them. I encourage you to jump on the rolle ...more

Meredith Wild has done it again!!! She blew me away with The Hacker Series and then right off the bat, within the first few pages, it gets all hot and steamy between Cam and Maya. Maya and Cameron had a love like no other or so they thought....

Five years later, Both Cam and Maya become two different people, they don't see each other, or even speak. Maya becomes a heavy drinker and a dark bitter person. After running into each other Cameron decides he is going to do everything it takes to see if

**ARC provided for honest review **

I was lucky enough to receive an ARC copy of On My Knees. I was already a huge fan of Meredith's work from the Hardwired series, and this book showed another dimension of her ability to write engaging, heartfelt fiction.

Maya and Cameron's story is an emotional whirlwind. Your heart will ache for these characters and you'll root for them.

I absolutely recommend this book - another winner from Meredith Wild!
Tenisha Brown
there was all these glowing reviews about this and I seen it on the what to read after fifty shades group on Facebook. so color me shock when it did not live up to the expectation. Maya is a girl with a secret that she deemed to embarrassing to share with her boyfriend cam. Cam makes Maya an offer that she refuses and causes them to lose touch for five years. A surprise run in could make for an interesting read but it didn't. I could not connect with the characters on the account that Maya sabot ...more
Karie King
Meredith created 2 people so different from each other yet everything said they needed to be together. Maya tried drinking away her feelings and Cameron tried everything to be her only addiction. On my knees had me hooked from page 1! So many twists and turns to this raw relationship. A must read!
Carly Ellen Kramer
I enjoyed another of Ms. Wild's book series, so thought I'd give this one a whirl. It's very different from her other books, more reflective I think - I enjoyed the depth of character development in On My Knees. The title is odd; in hindsight, I still don't quite see where it came from. That's an inconsequential detail, I suppose.
Nichole Dennis
I had the honor of reading this book. Meredith did not disappoint. I really enjoyed the plot & characters. I got the book and could not put it down. I laughed, cried, and felt the love! You could feel the sexual tension! holy hotness! I'm in love with Cameron!! totally worth reading!!!
