*J* Too Many Books Too Little Time

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

4.5 Stars

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.

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

What a bad book. It was geniuely bad. Not joking.
Yes the first 130 pages were nice because you just get into the story and are still getting to know the characters but my god the further I read the worse it got.

Our female protagonist Maya is talking about how much she needs a drink all the time. In the same sentence it's always how much her life sucks just as her job and everything else. She hates literally everything and ShE CaNt LeT AnYoNe LoVe HeR.

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 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.

Mindy Lou's Book Review
Audible Review I loved the duel narration. Both narrators did a good job. Im pretty picky about audible vs reading a book for the first time and I would recommend the audible version.

Story Review I liked everything about this book except the heroine. This is a case of too much pushing away. I think Cam proved himself enough. Instead of talking out her fears, she kept him at arms length and yet kept him reeled in enough to keep trying. It just gets to a point of frustration for a reader to not se

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

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.

I won this book as part of a goodreads drawing.

A romance novel, where Girl leaves Boy, goes to New York, and lives a Sex In The City lifestyle, while Boy joins the military.

Years later they meet again...We all know where this is going.

Not bad if you're into this sort of thing.

This review may contain SPOILERS!
I was honestly hoping for a little more action from this book! The beginning was fine, and the story did sound promising, therefore I'd hoped that the unraveling mystery and reason why the whole split at the beginning happened, would end in a reasonable and emotional conclusion. Which was not the case, I felt like the main character, Maya, just pushed the love interest, Cameron, around and that kind of made me view her in an unpleasant way. At the end of the nove

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 comp

I never thought I'd moan about this, but this one was just tedious sex scenes strung together with a half hearted second chance style plot. He was devoted to her in spite of the fact she'd experienced something of a total personality lobotomy since they last met.

It's a shame really as I've read her hacker series books and thought they were gripping but this really missed the mark I'm afraid. Ah well.

I'm sorry. I just can't put myself through this anymore. It sucks too, because I LOVED Meredith Wild's Hacker Series. I thought the Bridge Series was a sure thing. And, I will preface this review by saying that I still love Meredith Wild's writing. I may even try the second book in this series someday. Because, my problem wasn't with the author or the words on the page.

I have nothing against the three Bridge siblings. Truly. Cameron was amazing. Sure, he might have royally screwed up with Ma

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

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.

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

On your knees is very different from the Hardwired series (which was the first books that i read of this author). Cameron and Maya go through such a emotional journey in this book. They meet after being separated for years. Being away for such along time has brought changes in both their lives. In this book they rediscover each other. Cameron was very patient with Maya and in the end they

I NEVER start a book and DNF it. I always push through but this year I told myself that if it is that bad to just stop it. This is one of those books.

Maya is an unlikeable character who is self-absorbed and self-pitying. Looking at the synopsis it says she is in a "soulless job" but what it should have said is that she is soulless and a shell of a person. No personality and no energy for life. She doesn't have a "work hard, play hard" lifestyle. She doesn't 'play hard' she gets drunk and proves

Building the wall to one's heart may keep out the pain of rejection but also the love of acceptance!
Poor Maya-she's a woman that's torn between caretaking for her family and loving her boyfriend whom she rejected his proposal of marriage.
Cameron and Maya both seem to suffer from this "work hard play hard" scenario that they can't escape.
Both are enamored in their work, their careers, their families yet when is their time together?

Thank you NetGalley and Waterhouse Press for the free copy. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I love The Hacker series. I read all the books in the series and loved almost every single one of them. So naturally, i have a pretty high expectation for this one too.

But tried as i might, i could not get into the story. I love the start but when Maya and Cam met again years after, i no longer like the dynamics between them. It felt forceful. And Cam's insi
Sissy's Romance Book Review
On My Knees by Meredith Wild is the First book in the Bridge Series. This is the story of Cameron Bridge and Maya Jacobs.
Cameron had asked Maya to marry him but she turned him down which of course broke his heart. But it also broke Maya's heart too because she didn't feel she could marry him due to her family issues. Now about 5 years later they happen to meet again by chance bring their feelings full force again. This was a good second chance at love.

“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.

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.

Maya and Cameron were in love. They talked about marriage and children and their future together but Maya never truly opened up to Cameron about her life, she kept a part of herself closed off out of fear so when Cameron proposes she says no a

Five years ago, Cameron, on leave from the military, proposed to his girlfriend Maya and she refused. She still had a year left in college and was taking care of her alcoholic mother. She very much loved Cameron, but she wasn't ready to get married. So, in his hurt from her refusal, he broke up with her, returned to the military and eventually war, refusing to ...more
