Pandora is a wild child through and through. After being sheltered by her overprotective (and at times, seriously neurotic) parents, she’s finally free to live her life on her own terms. Finally free of the consequences she suffered for so long, but not the fear instilled by her parents. Pandora shoulders deep-rooted anxiety—thanks in part to her parents’ unconventional forms of punishment—as if it’s just a part of who she is.

I LOVED Pandora. She is an incredibly deep character. Sunniva Dee real

I loved every minute of this book! Pandora is truly a wild child. She wants to be good, but she has a hard time with it. Dominic tries to help her and keep her out of trouble, but he has his own battles to fight. And then there is Leon....mysterious Leon. I can't wait to read his story!
Sunniva is an amazing writer! Everyone of her books that I have read have left me wanting more!

From the moment I started reading, I was hooked. Nothing around me exist, like I was in "Smother" with all the characters. It was crazy-chaotic-wanna-pull-your-hair-out, kind of read. If you love, a love triangle in a way, then get to reading Dominic and Pandora's story.

***** (5 stars) Will you open Pandora’s Box? An emotional read – wild and driven!

I can’t help but think of Pandora’s Box, and what a box Pandora has! For this Pandora, opening the box is symbolic of many things, good and bad. Her box is full of mistakes, entrapment, freedom, choices, self-discovery, growth, and love.

Pandora Wild Child is quite the emotional read. Pandora is wild and driven. She is rebellious, yet has lived a sheltered childhood with overly strict parents. College is her first ta

I will start that I have not had the pleasure of reading Ms. Sunniva's work in the past but I am certainly a fan girl now!
Pandora is a beautiful, sexy, smart girl who has been emotionally scarred and damaged by those close to her. She finally has some freedom and has gone off to college with three girlfriends. She doesn't always have her own best interests at hand and has been know to make spontaneous and poor choices. She is also afflicted with the chronic condition of Sheuermann's disease that

What a rush! This is Sunniva Dee's first contemporary novel and boy oh boy does it deliver! Pandora is just as the title suggests--WILD to the core. Yet, there's those endearing moments that makes her easy to relate to. You'll laugh at parts, really laugh at others, and your mouth will drop open more than once. You'll be happy for Pandora. Sad for her. And at times, you'll want to scream at her to try to knock some sense in her. Though, thank goodness for best friends, right Pandora? :)

Clever, uncomfortable, and at times, darkly humourous. A flawed heroine stitched together by hope and promises, but brought low by wilder impulses.

Wow! Pandora sure lived up to being a wild child...

Pandora Wild Child follows the story of Pandora and Dominic. Pandora has lived her entire life, sheltered. Now, she is off to college with her three friends and is finally free of her parents watchful eyes. So, what does one do when they've been sheltered for their entire life??? They party, of course. Pandora's free spirit and carefree attitude can't help but draw people into her.....The only thing holding Pandora back is her Scheuermann's Dise

I LOVE PWC!! The main reason why I loved it? DOMINIC!


"Dominic's arms circle me and hold me as if we always nap like this. It's natural, safe. It awakens a softness in me that makes me need him more."

It was a story told with a lot of talent. I loved the dialogues! I actually really loved Pandora as well. She is strong, feisty, stubborn, crazy, loving and funny as hell, she also didn't take any crap. She stood up for herself and other people. She's not perfect. She's got faults and issues and we l

Holy shianikes! This. Book. Rocks.


The moment I picked up Pandora Wild Child, I couldn't put it down. It’s one of those reads that gets your heart fluttering from the first pages alone—I think it may be love—and it’s the kind of book that reminds me why kiss a lot of, ahem, book toads, to find.

What I loved about this story was that everything was so deliciously original. As far as main characters go, Pandora is exceptionally fun.

I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review. I loved the way Mrs Dee expressed her love for her family in the introduction to this book.

Pandora suffers from Scheuermann's Disease and has lived a very sheltered life within a very strict family environment. When she leaves home with her three best friends, she is almost drunk on the freedom ahead of her. Some things which happened in her upbringing have unfortunately left Psychological Scars.

Well, I've discovered a new favourite author. Sunniva Dee's work was recommended to me by a friend and I'm so glad I picked it up. At long last, here was a college story that I could relate to with less than perfect characters. When the safety-valves are off, experimentation takes place, and not all experiments are productive.
The story centres around the symbolically named Pandora, the 'wild child' female lead character of the story. Similarly to the Pandora of legend, when her box (suitcase) is

After a couple of months of it sitting in my kindle app, I finally started reading about Pandora. A wild girl because of her traumatic punishments from daddy dearest, Pandora is testing the limits. Off to college with her 3 besties, they share an apartment in Deepsilver. They found this bar called Smother, and everything goes wild from there. With a perfect stranger, and a mess of a biker, Pandora has her life in such a mess.

This book was just amazing. I just devoured it!!
Pandora leaves for college with her three best friends. She needs to get away from her overprotective parents. She needs to put a stop to the overboard punishments her father would dole out when she would " do something wrong ".
Being stuffed in a closet when ever she did something he didn't approve of with no light has a definite negative impact on her brain! Not to mention she also has Scheuermann's disease so he

ONE HELL OF A WILD RIDE!!! I've become a huge Sunniva Dee fan. I love her work. This story is amazing. Sunniva takes you on one wild ride with Pandora's story. This wild child is determined to live it up now that she is no longer under her overprotective parents roof. Pandora is a smart, sexy, beautiful woman. But she's also reckless. She doesn't always know what's best for her. Sparks fly when she meets Dominic. Everything about him is perfect. The complete opposite of Pandora. Or so she thinks ...more

Pandora is embracing her freedom after leaving the control of her oppressive parents, she has issues related to her father's ideas about suitable punishment and over protectiveness. She has a good group of friends who try and keep her on track but at times she is out of control.

Dominic is sweet and protective, adorable from the moment we meet him. Their chemistry is off the charts but Pandora is self destructive and keeps him at arms length which leads her towards the dark and seductive force th

My heart is melting. Sunniva Dee got me again with this gorgeous gem that had me sighing and swooning.

There’s no false advertising with Pandora (Wild Child), a freshman college student who’s as immature and spontaneous as they come. Despite Pandora’s antics, Ms. Dee weaves her backstory and character so seamlessly that everything this young woman did made sense to me (even if she’s far beyond my own temperament.)

Enter Dominic. Sweet, mature, and oh-so-scorching hot, this man screams “stabilizin

Pandora’s life has been majorly sheltered. With her overprotecting parents and their extreme way of dishing out punishments, it is no surprise that when Pandora goes off to college, she becomes well, a Wild Child. Boy does this girl does like to party - big time. She is finally free and doesn't care about the consequences, at all. It’s at the local bar, Smother, where she catches the eye of not one hot, sexy guy, but two. Yeah, Ms. Dee definitely knows how to turn up the heat, and both these guy

My 4.5 star review!
Review copy provided.

This was such a unique story and not at all what I expected. Since we already have a synopsis I'm not going to recap the story.

Pandora (h) was definitely a mess she didn't know what she wanted except to party be free and LIVE, away from her overbearing parents. And saying she's a wild child is putting it lightly. The first night out she gets totally wasted and doesn't come home. I love how she wasn't painted like a damsel in distress. I loved the girl and

A compelling novel about a girl so wild, only one man can tame her.

Sunniva has done it AGAIN!
She has managed to write another book that, not only, drew me in with the very first paragraph, but also got me so emotionally involved I yelled, pouted, jumped for joy, cheered, and almost cried like a baby.
Pandora is incredibly feisty, determined, and sometimes naive, but more than anything she is a wild child. I'm pretty sure if you looked up the definition of wild child in the dictionary you'd see

Usually new adult or contemporary romance novels are not my thing. However, this is a Sunniva Dee new adult novel, so the rules are bent. Now, I had the pleasure of reading Shattering Halos and absolutely loved it. I loved Sunniva’s style of writing and how the words and emotions just seem to flow along the pages. As you are reading, you are experiencing most of these emotions along with the characters. It’s that reason that I cho

Pandora has lived far too long in the sheltered house of her neurotic parents. Starting college finally gives her the chance to be free and to live a life full of choices. Unfortunately for Pandora, those choices become far to easy to make on the back side of creme de menthe. Will Pandora learn from her mistakes? Or is she doomed to keep herself locked in a cycle, with no way out?

Dominic can't help but notice the Pandora on her first night at his favorite club, Smother. She commands attention fr

When I read the blurb for this book I was super excited and the reviews were through the roof.

I’m free. Fucking free!
I’m in college with my best friends and far, far from home!
With my Scheuermann’s disease as the excuse, my father kept me locked up at home all through high school. Here in Deepsilver, I can finally be me, Pandora, so—
Why the hell should I hold back?

So Ms. Wild Child is free from her abusive father, and yes I say abusive even though no hitting

Pandora Wild Child by Sunniva Dee was an excellent read in my book, coming in at 4 Wild Child stars!! It is written in a dual point of views of Pandora and Dominic and also added snippets from Leon's point of view thrown in here and there. I was in a bit of a book slump before I started Pandora Wild Child and this one definitely got me out of it because I started it yesterday and finished today!

This amazing story revolves around Pandora and Dominic whom I just love by the way LOL.
Pandora does not have an easy life. She has been sheltered by her parents and desperate to break free from their controlling arms. Pandora is so excited to get to college where she can experience life, she can go wild, she does not have to check in with her mom and dad and most importantly she can live!!
