Even Wilder

3.24  ·  Rating details ·  17 ratings  ·  11 reviews
I didn’t fall in love, it drop kicked me in the face.

We all fall in love.
And we all go through heart break.
It’s beautiful but it always ends. That’s why I don’t want any part of it.
I close my eyes hoping it will pass. When I open them back up—I’m still lost in it.
Love is the impact after the bang.
Love is going to destroy us.

I have never fit in.

I really enjoyed this story, for the most part.

This is a young adult, friends to lovers story. The relationship between Violet and Wilder is well fleshed out, neither of them have an easy life and they find solace in each other, but it takes a lot longer and a number of life lessons for either of them to admit their feelings for each other run deeper than friendship.

Violet's mother's a great character. Even though she'll never win mother of the year, her heart was in the right place.

Gah, this book was so good! I loved every minute of it. I couldn’t put it down for anything.

Vi and Wilder are freaking amazing. Both of these two have know each other since grade school, and Wilder has always had Vi’s back. These two became best friends and no one could tear them apart. Years later as they grew up, you see a change in them. We all know after high school things change. The people we once hung out with can move on. It’s part of growing up. But these two still talk, but are

such a sweet romance

This was a decent first effort but the female protagonist Violet is Black which is how she becomes best friends with Wilder because her classmates are racist. But this cover has a white woman... it’s a romance so I’m not going to critique the issues I had with how this author dealt with Violet’s Blackness and sexual abuse. I’m going to assume this book was written by a White author or a Black author attempting to appeal to white readers. I give this 3.5 ...more

Even Wilder by Bria Leigh has left me a bit torn. I feel that this book could have been so good, and I liked the premise of it. The main characters Violet and Wilder are interesting and have a well established relationship. However, that did not outweigh the numerous problems I had while reading this. The situations that the main protagonists go through/are mentioned are not thoroughly addressed and the author skims over them. I felt that Violet went through something in her past that was never ...more

Even Wilder is an interesting friends to lovers romance.

Wilder hides his anger, frustration, and fears behind alcohol and sex. His friend Violet suffers a lot as a result. They have a strong bong, are best friends, and are clearly meant to be together forever. But to get to their forever, they have to face a whole lot of stupidity, mistakes, growing up, danger, and tragic events.

Seriously, their story is a hot mess. It's emotional and a long ride for sure, full of pain and hurt.

I'm sorry but this one wasn't for me at all. I made it to around the 70% mark, then skimmed the rest just so I could get to the end instead of dnfing.

The art class scene is what finally did this book in for me. There is a big difference between love and lust. I found nothing romantic about this book at all.

It is jam packed with toxic relationships, self pity, crying or talking about crying. And I simply cannot 'ship' Vi and Wilder. Their relationship is very unhealthy and I personally did not

Thanks to the publisher for an ARC to read and give my honest opinion.

This is the story of two friends traversing to lovers with a lot of drama and instigation instead of just saying how they really feel.

What did I like? I like what the author was trying to convey it just seemed like a lot of work for two people to be together. I had a hard time finishing this because of the push and pull between Vi and Wilder.

Would I buy or recommend? Sadly no, I don’t feel like this book really helped pull Vi

This was a rough read. It started strong and got me engaged but I’m sorry to say it went downhill from there. I found myself shaking my head at the ridiculous stuff happening in this book. Also it needs a ton of editing. Sorry but I do not recommend. Thank you to netgalley for the arc.
