She’s someone he thinks he knows…

Violet Wilson is a wallflower. Shy, serious, and accident-prone, she’s got a bad habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The night she’s forced to pose with her friend might just be the worst time of all—that’s when she meets Jet Blevins. She knows better than to get involved with someone like him,

Kelli C ~ Jack Sawyer's Heart
This is a unique twist on good girl/bad boy love story as M. Leighton brings two characters from opposite lifestyles, a rising rock star and a lonely social worker, who enter into a relationship of sorts based solely on pure lies. Under the assumption of being sex addicts, they embark on a "supportive" friendly journey all in the hopes to get close to one another. Jet Blevins wants Violet Wilson like no other and he plays dirty to get her. You may think that is bad, but this "good girl" is no be ...more

Also zum Inhalt brauch ich nicht groß viel zu sagen, es ist ein typischer New adult Roman.
Die weibliche Protagonistin Violet war ein bisschen sehr negativ Gefühlen eingestellt meiner Meinung nach, Jet war ganz süß , aber irgendwie konnte mich das ganze nicht so voll kommen packen. Hat mich auch ein bisschen an After erinnert aber naja.
Alles in allem ein New adult roman der ganz okay und somit hab ich jetzt auch endlich die wild ones serie beendet :D

I’m starting to really like this series. Each Wild book gets better and better.


Violet’s best friend is a sex addict and Violet is always known to help people. Violet goes to the sex addict meetings with her best friend for support. At her first meeting she meets Jet. Jet is sexy rocker, lead singer for a band and is capital T, Trouble.

Meh, I didn't like this. Definitely least favorite in what has been a solid 3.5 star series thus far.

The whole story just seemed off. Violet is a social worker who basically has no one in her life that is stable. She is constantly helping those around her and neglecting herself in the meantime.

She is helping her "sex addict" BFF Tia, and meets Jet at a SAA meeting. It was like insta-lust from the start. Jet is your stereo-typical rocker slut. So Violet wants to help Jet, Jet wants to hump Violet

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 f ...more

Okay, I liked this one even though I wish there was a scene or two that the author would have expended on or we got a little bit more clarity. Jet feels like a bad person through most of the book and when we finally got to the part where it is discovered what he feels bad about, I wish it would have not been resolved so quickly. Nonetheless, I really like the characters except not sure how I felt about Tia, Violet’s BFF. Was she selfish or just an airhead??? Violet is sweet and beautiful and car

I have been a huge fan of M. Leighton's for a while now and The Wild Ones Series is what made me fall in love with her writing, her characters and her ability to create a fantastic story. There's Wild Then There's You is a perfect example of just that. While TWTTY is part of the series, in my opinion it could be read as a stand alone.

"There's something wild about those eyes, something that says she's hiding a little devil inside that hot-yet-innocent librarian exterior, and it's just dying to make its way out."

Violet will do anything for her friends including getting into a situation that is out of her element. And she never expected to meet a man there or where that would lead. And soon everything just snow balled.

She's the good girl, the level headed one, structured, stable, shy, and a bit insecure. She takes care of every

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.
