3.5--Exhausting--Stars!!!

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

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

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

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 www.meredithwild.com. 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

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.

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.

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.

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!

4 well-earned stars to Meredith Wild. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Maya is complicated and embodies every woman with imperfections that are truly just that, imperfections. She may wallow a bit too much in self-pity for my taste, but that only makes her character more relatable.

Cameron on the other hand, seems to be a bit too perfect. But so what? It certainly doesn't diminish the story.

If I had one recommendation to raise this from a four-star to a five-star, it would be to have a more in-d

“Someone could drag me to hell, and I’d crawl back to you, Maya, for a chance to make right everything that was ever wrong between us. Even I can’t tell you what’s happening with us. I’ve never felt this way. But believe me when I tell you I’m not going anywhere. I swear to you.”

College sweethearts, Maya Jacobs and Cameron Bridge seemingly had it all: love, passion and a promising future. Until one day when Cameron visits while on leave from basic training and hastily asks Maya to marry him. M

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.

I wasn't sure about this one by the time I got to the last page. I liked Connor, but I couldn't see any reason why he would try so hard to start a relationship with Olivia again. I get that she was broken by Connor walking away from her five years before, but he was also broken by the love of his life not wanting to make a lifetime commitment to him. Maybe if Olivia was more forthcoming about who she really was or what her home life was like, things wouldn't have been that hard for

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 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

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.

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.

LOVED IT.

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

What's the word I'm searching for...... Steady! That's what this story is, it's steady. It's not fast paced. It doesn't really go anywhere and you can kind of guess the inevitability.

This book is about second chances.

I absolutely loved the plot and the characters created for this story. The chemistry is off the charts and the banter between Cameron and Maya is fun and intense at times. I loved the fight that Cam had in him to not let Maya walk away the way he did years before. His passion for her was intense and sexy.
