Violet Wilson ist ein Mauerblümchen. Schüchtern, ernst und vom Pech verfolgt, hat sie die schlechte Angewohnheit, in jedes Fettnäpfchen zu treten. So auch, als sie ihre beste Freundin bei einem Treffen für Sexsüchtige "vertritt". Doch da lernt sie den Rockstar Jet Blevins kennen. Sie weiß, dass man sich mit einem wie ihm besser nicht einlässt, doch er berührt sie so, wie s ...more

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

Tia is funny "Save the Vagina campaign" had me dying.

The song Jet wrote about Violet damn were those words so powerful. Oh my every time he spoke I was just falling for him oh so much. What an intense read this series is addicting.

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 and somewhere alon

The Geekery Book Review
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. I’m a huge proponent for reading a series in order and I have read The Wild Ones and Wild Child , but I did skip Some

Imma just take a second to pant over this cover. Hot damn that's a sexy work of art. Yums! Alright. To the review! Leighton has definitely caught my attention with the Wild Ones series and makes it near impossible to put a book down once you've picked it up...even if some of the things the characters do are a touch questionable. Seriously, I was hella entertained as Jet and Violet get pulled into a whirlwind of addiction that collides with unstoppable lust, secrets and a chance for a future they

Oh my gosh. How have I never read M. Leighton up until now? Seriously kicking myself a little. I really, really, really enjoyed There's Wild, Then There's You. It's the third book in her The Wild Ones series, but that' okay, because it can be read as a stand-alone.

Every time I read a new M. Leighton book, I declare a new favorite book boyfriend. As per usual, I've decided it can't get any better than Jet. My only complaint about There's Wild, Then There's You is I wanted to know more about him and his past and his relationship with his douchey dad. Other than that, this book had me at hello.

Between all of M. Leighton's "Wild" men to date - Trick, Jake and Jet - Jet from There's Wild, Then There's You, is by far my favorite, and he's

"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 tak

Hi, my name is Maria and I am addicted to Michelle Leighton's men and novels. There isn't a character she's dreamed up that hasn't made my heart race, blood boil or given me goose bumps. Jet is right up there. He is a rocker, as if that weren't enough, he's so sexy it's wild. See what I did there...lol. Seriously, though, Jet is unlike any other rocker because he has ambitions that don't involve performing. However, as hot as he is, he's also a bad boy. We think we know why but he's got a secret ...more

I am a huge M. Leighton fan. I have yet to come across a book from her that I have not enjoyed, and at this point I seriously doubt that it will ever happen. This is my favorite of Michelle’s series, so I had very high expectations for There’s Wild Then There’s You and it definitely delivered! I absolutely loved Jet and Violet. This book delivered in every single way it could and I devoured it.

The Wild Ones Series is one of my favorite series from Michelle, as The Wild Ones was the first novel I have ever read by her. I can honestly tell you that I think her writing gets better with every book and I didn't think that was possible.

This book was so captivating that I read it within hours could not put it down.

Love the cover!! Yum, yum. This book was different than the other books in the series mainly because Jet is a musician, and although I liked this book the other three in the series I loved so much more. Jet I loved being inside his male little head, "her figure is small but proportionate - round ti*s, flat stomach, firm a**, long legs. Looking at her makes me glad to have found her here. I know for sure she likes one thing. And she likes it a lot. I can sympathize with that." I mean the boy is w ...more

I have no idea why I'm surprised with how wonderful this book was - I loved the last book I read by this author & I guess I just forgot how lovely her work is. I was only disappointed in the cover - since I got an ARC, I didn't get the amazing cover that is pictured here - I LURV the whole black & white with only a touch of color thing! The story itself was incredible. I even loved the back & forth POV between Jet & Violet. The pacing was spot on and the characters were well thou ...more

LOVE LOVE LOVE this new Wild One's Novel by M. Leighton. Hot and sexy...pull you in from the first page.

Jet and Violet meet in an usual place - A Sex Addicts Anonymous meeting. Just the perfect place to find that perfect mate, right? LOL

Jet is a hot, brooding rock star with a past that he hasn't been all that honest with Violet about. But then again, Violet was only at the meeting to help support her best friend, who really is the sex addict. Violet has only slept with one other per

Aww I loved it...

Was it original or earth shattering? Nope.

Sure it dealt with some tough subjects but in a light manner. It was just a sweet little love story. Sure it was hot, even though there wasn't that much sex in it.

Jet and Violet meet at a Sex Addicts Anonymous meeting. Violet is there to support her friend Tia, who didn't show up. She is so far from a sex addict. Jet is a sex addict? Or just a guy with a lot of experience.

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.

I received a free copy of this book from a Goodreads giveaway. This is a 3rd in a series, but can be read as a standalone. The story alternates between Violet's and Jet's point of view. I enjoyed the building romance and sexual tension between them.
