I brought them to the wilderness because we couldn’t cope with our reality.
The plan was to make a new life that didn’t include heartache.

No people. No technology. No interference.
Just us.
A chance to piece together what was broken.

But the wilderness is untamed and harsh.
Brutal and unforgiving.
It doesn’t give a damn about your feelings.

Tragedy lives there too.
No escaping the

Okayyyyyyyy. Whelp.

This doesn't happen very often - if ever, actually - but I don't even know what to say right now.

Seriously. I don't.

My friends always tell me that if most people's brains can be compared to a lone hamster on a wheel, then mine is analogous to three hamsters on a wheel, spastically running into each other.

Which is actually very accurate; however, right now, my hamsters are like this:

Yep, nope. There's dark, messed up and taboo, which I've read and enjoyed my fair share of. And then there's shameless and gratuitous, far from romance and way into illegal and really disturbing territory. This book is the latter. Although this is getting lots of buzz of the 5 star kind, which I guess, to each their own. This is no Forbidden , Flowers in the Attic , All the Ugly and Wonderful Things or Nine Minutes to name a few. This is more like an Alexa Riley book, you know, shameless smut. O ...more

I love reading out of the box reads and I like taboo stories. When I saw all the buzz surrounding The Wild, I knew I had to pick it up and read it for myself. I'm going to be honest here and say… I really didn't like this book. It's not because of the subject matter, I enjoy reading taboo stories. I know a lot of people are grossed out by this one, but honestly it didn't bother me like that too much(view spoiler)

Honestly, I don't see what all the fuss is about. Why does everyone have their panties in such a twist over this one? It's just a book, people! It's a dark, smutty, taboo work of fiction. It isn't like this is the first erotic story to explore kinky daddy issues and/or incest. Seriously, I just don't get it.

Obviously, given the subject matter, this isn't a story that is going to hold any appeal for many readers. So, don't read it. I can respect that. So please respect my right to be as dirty-min

WARNING:

This review will have some spoilers.

Personal note:
Now, as a very open-minded woman, who is quite outgoing and sometimes compassionate to a fault, I went into this controversial book, already with an open heart, ready to consume it and ready to enjoy it, out of spite, because of all the haters who felt that it was okay to bash an author/a person so insultingly for a book she wrote...


And I mostly DID enjoy this book. That’s why it has a 3 stars rating from me.

The "warning" on this book didn't deter me because I've literally never read anything that took me so far outside my comfort zone that I couldn't handle it. This particular warning was deliberately vague and gave the reader no clear indication as to what this book was about anyway, but rather it served more as bait to unsuspecting readers that enjoy taboo storylines. And I took the bait. I wasn't even skeptical because I'm not a sensitive reader. I'm not bothered by most of the things other read ...more

*Spoilers*

The thing is I'm not one to jump on the bandwagon nor will I willingly subjugate my rights, just so I can appease the crowd. That is groupthink at its worst, a notion I shelf under mental slavery. No thank you.


I believe I'm old enough and sufficiently intelligent to know what is morally correct, particularly as it pertains to what I choose to do or read.

Erm, no - I didn't really like this one at all. I read it because the taboo aspect intrigued me and it was on Kindle Unlimited. I almost dnf at the 20% mark but I was convinced by all the 5 star reviews that the characters would be redeemed in some way so I continued.

Taboo is an understatement, I thought it was pretty sick (a lot sick) and way too over the boundaries for me. As for the storyline, it was all very silly and OTT.

Not for me, not in the slightest!

THE WILD: Is a dark, taboo standalone novel by K. Webster.. As requested by the author this review is going to be as spoiler free as I can possibly make it.

Warning: The Wild is an extremely taboo story. Most will find that the themes in this book will make you incredibly uncomfortable. This book is only for the brave, the open-minded, and the ones who crave love in even the most dismal of situations. Extreme sexual themes and violence in certain scenes, which could trigger emotional distr

I bought this book a week ago while on vacation. I had no idea what it was about except that it was taboo (which I normally love). I wasn't even aware of all the drama until today when I finished DNF'd the book and logged in to GR.

I did not like it. At all.
I don't even want to explain why I did not like it.

But not because I am sensitive to heavy taboo themes .

By the way, I find the Warning in the beginning of the book rather insulting for the readers.

After losing his son Reed packs his wife Sabrina, daughter Devon and their entire life up and moves them deep into the Alaskan wilderness. Just the three of them off the grid to build a new life and good memories. My heart bled for Sabrina in the beginning, I completely understood why she was the way she was. That's about all I can get into about the plot without giving anything away as this is one crazy ass ride you'll just have to read.

1 star is too much for this piece of shit.

The author fucking romanticizes CHILD ABUSE AND INCEST in her book.
YEAH CHILD ABUSE.
I don't give a fuck that there's a twist there about how (view spoiler).

Repeat after me: CHILD ABUSE IS NOT ROMANTIC. CHILD ABUSE IS NOT ROMANTIC.

SHE IS STILL A CHILD.
HE, on the other hand, IS A RAPIST.
HE IS A PEDOPHILE.
HE IS A SEX OFFENDER.

➳People simply just don't understand the issue at hand in this novel...

➳I finished this novel, and I believe now I can say what I think of it. And all I can say that even though I read the twists and turns, it still disgusts me to read such a taboo story. This is not ROMANCE, this is perversion at the worst level possible. My opinion, my words... Want to judge me? Go ahead!

When did romanticizing paedophilia become a genre?
Reviewers are calling this a love story? Beautiful? A work of Art? Taboo?

Fuck off. This is child sexual abuse, rape, paedophilia, and grooming of a child who needs serious medical attention. Yeah it's a fictional story. It takes a very sick person to think of something like this. Lets hope K Webster does not have children especially a daughter.

The entire story makes no sense, the plot is stupid. The characters are stupid.

Please don't judge me but I did enjoy this book; I did feel it was well written and I fully agree this isn't for everyone! There are lines that are definitely crossed and are absolutely going to offend some people. Me; I just remember I am reading fiction and this isn't REAL!!!! This would be why I am able to take this with a grain of salt and move on.

Let me lay out my issues: SPOILERS!!!



1. The characters were not forced into some post-apocalaptic event scenario. They chose to move to the wilds of Alaska and basically camp. So, the excuse that they were in a different situation than we can imagine? No. They could have VERY easily gone back to civilization.
2. The girl was 16. If I hear one more person defend this by saying "The age of consent in Alaska is 16" I will lose it because that is SO not the issue. The issue is that he is her father

Seriously, read the warning.

Without spoiling the story, the plot goes something like this:
Move to remote place to try and start over.
Peril.
Devastation.
Taboo.
Bigger Taboo.
Biggest Tabbo I've ever read.
Peril.
Emotions.
Revelations.

But seriously. Heed the warning.
