But what didn't happen in Vegas seems to follow them everywhere.


Lola and Oliver like to congratulate themselves on having the good sense to not consummate their drunken Las Vegas wedding. If they’d doubled-down on that mistake, their Just Friends situation might not be

“He always did that,” Harlow says, and then takes a drink of her wine. “Looked at you like if he stared hard enough you could hear each other’s thoughts and wouldn’t have to say them out loud. Like he wanted to be in your mind, wanted you in HIS.”

The most potent feeling I had while reading this story was PITY.

Yes, pity. Pity for poor Oliver. A perfect man flipping and flopping like a fish on the ground to make his Lola Love to notice that he is goddamn deep

Dark Wild Night was a highly anticipated read for me. I’ve been dying to read Lola and Oliver’s book since I read the first in the series. I love that they are both geeks. I’m a geek so I like to read about other geeks. I love that Oliver and Lola didn’t take the same path as the other two couples. Their night in Vegas turned into something different. They went the responsible route, did the right thing and realized they had a lot in common. A friendship stemmed from that.

This novel is sadly my least favorite of the series to date. Once I was halfway through, I finally pinpointed what wasn’t working for me and sadly, it’s the heroine… Lola.

I had a very hard time connecting to her and her train of thought. At first I thought it was my lack of comic book knowledge, but after further reading it wasn’t that at all. Lola is dense and not in a cute way. She lacks any sort of communication skills

Well....my foray in to MF was rather short lived.

Giving this one the DNF @ 18%. Yeah, yeah...I barely read any. But I read enough to start getting annoyed and my reading time is precious so #imoverit

I will just never understand why two people can't just have a conversation and tell each other how they feel.



Pretty much from the get-go I didn't like Lola's inner monologue.

And this "thought"....

I feel like I say this every time I read one of their books... But this just became my favorite Christina Lauren book.

Dark Wild Night continues to follow the story of what happens after three friends go to Vegas and end up marrying three men they met while there. This time we follow Lola and Oliver.

I can't even start to express how much I loved these two characters. Lola is completely different from any other female lead they have given us in the past. First off Christina Lauren often write thes

Lola and Oliver were the last couple remaining of their eventful night in Vegas. But they were the only two who didn’t get involved and instead developed a strong friendship between the two of them,
Except that they both are in love with each other and neither of them wants to admit it, afraid of being unrequited. Until one night changes it all and they both know they have to fight for each other because their friendship will never be the same, but change is not always a good thi

I NEED AN OLIVER IN MY LIFE, RIGHT NOW!

I know I always say that, but this time I mean it. He would be so perfect for me *sigh*, he’s understanding, caring, and respectful. He loves deeply and truthfully and he is just perfect for Lola who won my heart from the first line I read in this book. She is this nervous, super creative, smart, funny and clueless girl, and all that makes her just as perfect for Oliver as he was for her.

So why so many stars, you might be asking…

The reviews for this have been very entertaining. I have friends who loved it, and friends who dnf'd in equal measure. I feel so boring and meh to admit that I'm kind of in between. I loved Oliver's pov so much I added him to my book boyfriend list. I thought the friendship between Oliver and Lola was believable and sweet. And imo, this was the best CL has done with sexual tension build-up. The first sex scene more than delivered! I loved the first half to two thirds of the novel, and I

So, after reading something dark I wanted a good light funny read so I decided to go for Christina Lauren's new book in their Wild Season series. I love their books very much and this one, well, I liked it. Let's see why.

Dark Wild Night is the story of Oliver Lore (the hottest sweetest nerd who happens to be widly in love with the protagonist) and Lorelei "Lola" Castle (also a nerd, a comic writer and a very dubious person, in terms of her feelings and confidence)

Hm it took me a while but I did finish it. It took me longer than normal because I found the book a bit slow and I end up putting it down to do something else. I didn't like the whole book/movie plot, I kinda spaced out during those parts. I wish Harlow had less book time I found her annoying. Lola wasn't so bad until 70%.

Anyways what saved the book for me was Oliver. He was the sweetest hero. Also the friends to lovers storyline in the first half of the book felt believable. Overall it w

I have been anxiously awaiting this book since I first met the gang. Over the series I have grown to love these characters and roles they play in their friendships. Oliver and Lola relationship to me was the most special. I always felt there was pureness to it since they actually developed a friendship instead of jumping into a one night stand.

When Dark Wild Night begins Lola has just been a movie deal for her book and is in the process

Dark Wild Night is a standalone and is part of the Wild Seasons series, which is a spin-off from the Beautiful B series.

This is my first book in this series and I LOVED IT! Gah, I need to go back and read the first two books. Not only do I love the covers, writing style and everything about these books, but every time I pick up anything from these authors they just take me to happy times.

I've said with the last few books in this series that I don't find it lives up to their previous series. Even though I had high hopes for this one it was by far the worst.
I didn't find any humor in it. The sex scenes were rushed and fell flat. The ending was abrupt.

Oliver got 3 stars in this book.
That's it.
Lola was selfish. She missed a deadline prior to even hooking up with Oliver then puts them in "pause" because she's over whelmed. It just didn't add up.

Add to that the offensive autism j

I mean can Christina Lauren really ever write a bad book?

Is there ever going to be a time they don’t create these characters and scenes that are the most perfect combination of sweet and sexy?

Nah…didn’t think so either.

Oliver leans close, mouth sliding up my neck to my ear. "Well, I dont think I've ever loved anyone quite like this. In this sort of giddy, obliterating game-changing way. Where I can see myself with her for the rest of my life."

FOUR POINT FIVE STARS

I really enjoyed these two nerds. We first meet them in Sweet Filthy Boy and since that initial meeting I've been shipping these two. They're one of my favorite nerd couples.

Dark Wild Night was the right mix of nerdiness and tension as they figure out how to be together despite other obligations. Now there's one more book in this series - Perry's story. I'm looking forward to seeing how his story plays out.

Christina Lauren’s books are well-paced, steamy, easy to read. This latest installment is no exception. That said, the story failed to pull me in after a few chapters. It lacked excitement and on top of that, the development of friend-to-lover relationship between Oliver and Lola seemed pretentious.

Do I think they are a perfect match?? Not really.

Lola did annoy me. I mean I would not high-five her. Despite Oliver was one heck of a gentleman, I don’t think the author provided any depth t

The story:

Lola & Oliver are friends ever since their trip to Vegas.. when they were married for a few hours. Creating a bond between them they became close friends, who shares the same geek feelings, humour and passion about comics and etc. They obvisouly have feelings for each other but saving their friendship and also fear of only one side feelings is preventing them to take one more step and be more than fr

- Found out about Not-Joes cock piercing at 27%,
- Wished Not-Joe was gay too at 27%
- Realized there is so future for them, therefore DNF at 72%



That made me come to the conclusion that Oliver would be better off with Not-Joe and not with Lola.
And here are the reasons (Ranty review and spoilers ahead):


Not-Joe wouldn't act insecure without having a good reason. Unlike Lola. I couldn't figure out the reason for her insecurities.. and don't tell me about her mo

Finally Oliver's story!! The HOTTIE-comic-book-store-owner!
I loved it.
So cute and adorable and SEXY!!!!!!!
I especially love the location: San Diego!
It takes Lola and Oliver a while to get it right - but that's to be expected... I wish the book would've had another 200 pages - there was still so much Hollywood-stuff and Oliver-history to talk about...
But it was perfect the way it was.
Lots of Ansel and Finn too - and I guess we'll get to see Luke as London's guy in the next book. ☺

I have been waiting anxiously for this book. I've read the other two books in this series as well, which I loved as wel as the beautiful bastard ones.

Now don't shoot me when I say I really enjoyed reading this one...but I didn't love it as much as the others.

I laughed my ass off, reading book 1, but I didn'do a lot of laughing while reading this one. Sure there were some funny parts, but it wasn't hilarious. I also didn't feel a connection with Lola. Don't ask me why...sure she made some mistak

I'm not sure where I fall on this rating. I found this book hugely frustrating and quite honestly I was expecting a whole hell of a lot more from the ending. It felt like the book just dropped off. I couldn't believe it was over, and in the end I really don't like who Lola turned out to be. I found her extremely selfish and wildly hurtful to Oliver, who alway put her and her needs first...UGH...yep UGH sums it up really well for me. What do you think UGH is translated into stars??
