I always struggle with how to rate lady porn. Does giving a book within this category 4stars mean that it's a great work of fiction? Or does it mean it achieved it's desired effect pretty spectacularly? I'm going with the later.

I will state for posterity, this story is ridiculous. But lets be real, we don't read this garbage for the plot. Having said that, I do need my smut to have somewhat of a plausible and preferably concise plot in order to appreciate the smut scene(s).

3.5 Wild Stars

Some Like it Wild is a sweet, short and easy read.

Laney is a preacher’s daughter and a good girl. Before Laney went to college, she had a brief encounter with Jake, it was very short, but enough to last an impression on both. Years later, she catches her fiancé cheating and she leaves him. Laney goes back to town and help Jake with his family estate. Jake doesn’t do relationships and just wants to get into Laney’s pants, but the more they get to know each other, they realize there

3.5 - 4 good meets a touch of bad stars!

M Leighton has yet to write a book in which I disliked the characters. Laney Holt is the small town good girl..the stereotypical preachers daughter. Wanting so desperately to always do the right thing, but deep down feeling the temptation to just bust out of her comfort zone. Jake Theopolis is way too far out of that comfort zone as the older,more "seasoned" town bad boy. One sweet yet daring kiss as teens was never forgotten and now time and circumstances
Initial Thoughts: 3.5 stars. This is a fun, light romance about a goody-goody preacher's daughter Laney and her bad boy boyfriend Jake. This book also included Wild Child which is the story of Jake's sister Jenna and her love, Rusty.

The Review:
Take one shy preacher’s daughter who just wants to marry and settle down. Add one hunky bad boy fireman. Watch the sparks fly…

New Adult romances are touch and go for me. On one hand, it’s kind of fun to relive that first love, the novelty of all those won

5 Dirty Talkin Jake Theopolis Stars!!!!

I can't explain how great this book is, you need to read it for yourself. Read It. It is so good. Her writing captivates me and how she manages to bring chemistry between to characters to life, it's just brilliant. I could feel the story between Laney and Jake and o what a great story. She has the ability to take a simple formula of boy meets girls and turn it extraordinary. This women delivers! A Must Read.

Preacher's daughter, hot peach farmer dude that is chalk full of sexual innuendoes. Friends with benefits that turns into more. Short, sweet, and hot. Good enough for me :)

I have read quite a few of Michelle’s books now and I can easily say that this is my favorite of her series. I love them all, but there is just something really special about this series for me. I love the setting and the characters; the story is engaging and addictive and you can’t forget the steamy moments. I can always count on Michelle to deliver a great read.

I've been so excited about reading Some Like It Wild. I absolutely love M. Leighton's books, and Some Like It Wild has quickly become one of my favorites. M. Leighton has such a gift for creating a story that not only will captivate you, but packing it with lots of humor, heartbreak, a little angst, and enough steam to power a freight train, which she fully demonstrates yet again in Some Like It Wild.

After reading the prologue some time ago, I knew I was going to love Jake and Lane's story. Jak

I love M. Leighton and her brand of passionate romances that make me feel the characters emotions, smile and swoon and Some Like it Wild did all that. This is the second book in the Wild Ones series and can be read as a standalone. Mini review: girl meets bad-boy who’s really a good guy, steamy, heartwarming, fun and romantic.

Okay, so y'all know by now, I, Lauren am A Minxy-a-holic!!! I Love Michelle Leighton's books!  I have been addicted to her books since Amazon recommended me to read her book "Down To You" back in 2012!

So this is Book#2 in the Wild Child Series.  If you have not read the 1st Book "The Wild Ones", go read it!

We got introduced to Jake Theopolis who is known as the bad boy who can't be settled down with anyone.

Why do good girls like bad boys? Because they're HOT and SEXY and DANGEROUS! Let's not forget, deep down, we think we can change them. Can we? Laney Holt wants to believe she can change Jake Theopolis. Is he really as bad as people say? Should she stay away? Can she stay away? I know I couldn't. He may be "bad", but, he's honest, just not with himself, and damaged. He's also an adrenaline junkie and a firefighter.

WOW!!! I didn't think it could be possible, but I think I love Jake more than I lov

All right Ladies!! You need to get you mitts on this one for one reason alone… FIREMAN! Yep, Jake is a hot fireman, who has returned home to settle some family business. The girl who turns up to do the paperwork at the house is Laney, a girl he kissed four years ago, who happens to be the preachers daughter. They are both from two different worlds, but Jake convinces Laney to let her hair down and do things she wouldn’t normally do. And for Jake, well, he just wants Laney under him!!

First Impression:
Going into this one, Jake was a bit of a mystery and I knew nothing about Laney, but I love the cover! It fits the series well and I couldn't wait to read this story!

The story:
Laney is the quintessential preachers daughter. She's always walked a straight line and strives hard to please her parents. But, she's never really taken any risks. She's never really had any kind of adventure. Plus, she's coming out of a relationship that ended badly. Then, Jake Theopolis enters the pictu

I picked this book up after I read M. Leighton's All the Pretty Poses, which was a little darker and intense, so this book was THE PERFECT NEXT BOOK FOR ME!!! I needed light, fluffy, pretty sexy romance, lol if there is such a thing, but this is what Some Like it Wild was for me. Don't get me wrong, it is still HOT and STEAMY and WONDERFUL!!!

Jake Theopolis is just a sexy sexy man, I love how he knows what he wants, doesn't care what anyone thinks of him, oozes sex appeal, and is actually a reall

5 stars - I absolutely adore Jake and Laney!

First Impressions...

All you have to say to me is M. Leighton and I'm ready to read! I so loved The Wild Ones and was super excited to read this one.

The Characters...

I immediately loved Jake. He had some secrets and when I found out his secrets I loved him even more. He's clearly the bad boy and everyone knows it. The whole town sees him that way but there is so much more to him than his reputation. He's sexy, patient and a great guy. Believing it's

Although this book is Book 2 in the Wild Ones series, it can be read as a standalone. Laney is a preacher's daughter, raised in a strict and prim-and-proper household and is the quintessential "good girl." What I liked about her character and her family and friends is that there were no caricatures and no "black and white" personalities; everyone was very human, and certainly made mistakes along the way.

Laney has a chance meeting with the sexy, gorgeous and irresistible Jake Theopolis. She does

So I dont think Ill ever see roasted marshmallows the same again. Maybe peaches too. I actually had no real idea about the characters in this one, I just found the synopsis interesting, with the preacher's daughter and a guy with a rep. Jake was a mystery in the beginning, obviously charming and well liked by his peers, parents maybe not so. As the story went on I wondered about his past and the guilt he obviously has, anger and maybe resentment for how people see his family. I could se

M Leighton has yet to write a book in which I disliked the characters. It is in this Wild Ones series that she introduced Trick and had women swooning for his sweet and sexy southern charm. Knowing that this series was moving forward and bringing more southern sex appeal had me at the peak of anticipation.

This is such a sweet love story about Laney, the good girl preacher's daughter and Jake, the wild one the town sees as a bad boy. Laney wanted it all. The marriage, kids . . HEA. It did not seem like she was going to get that until Jake. Jake is wild but only because he does things that takes him to the edge and he gets Laney to go to the edge with him. She loves it. Not knowing that they would be able to last because of his past, he did not think that he could be loved or love anyone. He was af ...more

Some Like it Wild is book 2 in the Wild Ones series by M. Leighton. This is not a continuation of book 1, The Wild Ones, but more of just a companion novel based in the same place and revolves around different groupings of characters which loosely connect to others. This is a story of love blooming where once love was thought to be lost with plenty of steam weaved in and can be read as a standalone.

Pretty good.

I finished this a couple weeks ago and forgot to mark it as read, then, reading the synopsis, I honestly didn’t know what book they were talking about. It took reading three other reviews before it hit me and I remembered the characters and what it was about.

That sounds like it doesn’t bode well for this book, but once it came back to me, I do remember that I enjoyed this book and the characters. The synopsis ju
May 06, 2017 rated it did not like it
I didn't rate this novel until I read the first one as well to give it a fair chance. In reading both back to back, I think the reader will see a formula and quite a bit of repetition. The author seems to like "blushing" girls as that seemed to run through both books. Both girls are somewhat naive and inexperienced whereas the men are uber confident and sex-driven. The formula itself isn't the worst, but the way it was written came off as cheesy to me. The game that these guys have is just over ...more
