Mentally. Emotionally. Exhausting.

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

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 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.

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.

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.

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 ye

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

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.

Maya dopo aver terminato brillantemente l’università, trova lavoro a Wall Street in ambito finanziario. A venticinque anni trascorre le giornate in un piccolo box a masticare numeri, incollata ad un PC. Le sue giornate sono vuote e l’alcool le fa da compagnia durante la pausa pranzo e durante i suoi solitari week-end. Non bastano gli eleganti completi firmati, le lussuose scarpe dal tacco alto e le borse costose a ridarle gioia. So

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.

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

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.

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 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

Cari lettori, finalmente ho trovato un po’ di tempo per potervi parlare della mia ultima lettura. Si tratta di un romance scritto dalla bravissima Meredith Wild, dal titolo "Ogni tuo desiderio", pubblicato il 3 luglio grazie alla Newton Compton editori. Il romanzo è il primo volume della serie “Bridge”, che ci racconterà dei tre fratelli Bridge: Cameron, Darren e Olivia. Si parte da Cameron, è stato proprio lui a tenermi compagnia in questi giorni.

Ich hatte mir durch den Klappentext und das wunderschöne Cover deutlich mehr erwartet. Die Charaktere sind leider nur sehr oberflächlich ausgearbeitet. Wer große Gefühle erwartet, wird enttäuscht, denn Maya und Cameron lösen diese lieber mit Sex.
Der Schreibstil der Autorin konnte mich leider auch nicht so überzeugen. Die Geschichte wird sowohl aus Mayas als auch aus Camerons Sicht erzählt. Allerdings wechseln die Sichtweisen innerhalb eines Kapitels teilweise mehrmals, was mir nic

אין לי מושג מי כתב את התקציר של הספר בכריכה האחורית, אבל הוא בוודאות אדם עם חוש הומור:

"זהו סיפור על התבגרות וניתוק מכבלי העבר, על מאבק בין כוחות פנימיים עוצמתיים ומנוגדים, ועל כוחה המרפא של נחישות הלב. "

הספר הזה רק חופר בעבר. הוא הדבר האחרון שהייתי מתארת כהתבגרות והתנתקות מהעבר.
אין בו שום מאבק בין כוחות פנימיים עוצמתיים כי בשביל שיהיה מאבק בין כוחות, צריכים להיות כאלה.
ולתאר את סיום הספר ככוחה המרפא של נחישות הלב, אני בספק אם בלי פסיכיאטר וקצת כדורים שיאזנו אותה, הדמות המרכזית הנשית, מאיה, יכולה

Der Prolog als einstieg war sehr gelungen, er war sehr intensiv und emotional, so dass man gleich mitgerissen wurde. Danach war ich die Geschichte dann leider nur noch durchschnittlich. Es gab kaum Höhen und Tiefen und es war ein ewiges Hin und Her.

Maya fand ich mit ihrer Art unglaublich anstrengend und nervtötend, da habe ich mehrmals gefragt was Cameron eigentlich an ihr findet und warum er dies alles erträgt. Ich fand ihre Probleme außerdem sehr schwammig. Cameron fand ich größtenteils sym

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
