Liv's heart is encased in ice ever since her fiancé cheated on her not just once, but many times. So when she meets a gorgeous, intense man at a wedding, the last thing she wants is to give him the chance to hurt her. But no matter, she'll never see him again after this wedding, so she's fine. Wrong...because when a dear friend meddles with only her happiness in mind, it will set her and Miles back on the path to happiness - IF and that's a big IF, she can let go and allow him in and allow

Loving Liv is the 5th book in the Gone Wild series by Stacey Kennedy. Each book is stand-alone and can be read out of order since every story happens at the same time as the others and each book is written by a different author. This particular story is connected to another series the author has written and some characters appear in this book too. Honestly, this book felt more connected to the other series than with Gone Wild.

I have mixed feelings about this book and they lean mostly towards

I've been loving this series written by different authors. Some of them are my faves and Stacey Kennedy is one of them. I was instantly hooked on this book. A singles cruise is not what this group of college friends anticipated, but one they might need. I loved watching Liv blossom in this book. Miles brings out a passionate side to Liv that she never knew she had in her. This book does have bdsm elements to it, but it is tastefully done. Miles and Liv's chemistry burns hot. You may

Loving Liv is a smoking hot escape. The chemistry between Liv and Miles is apparent from the start and only gets hotter as the story progresses. I loved watching Miles give Liv the courage to explore her wilder side. These two had me feeling all the awwws. Break out the ice water youre gonna need it. ...more

Loving Liv gave me more than I anticipated. I had planned to read a couple of chapters, nothing more, but once I got started, I could not put it down.

The chemistry between the characters was insane, sucking me right into the story. I was desperately powering through the story, absorbing every interaction. I could not get enough of them, I adored how they played off each other, and I certainly want to read more about them.

In fact, this has left me wanting to find out what books the side
Ever since Liv had her heart broken by her cheating fiancé she's sworn off men so this trip to hang out with her closest friends should be just what she needs. What she wasn't counting on is running into Miles though, the hottest one night stand of her life and a man who has been trying to get her to date him ever since.

Miles hasn't been able to get Liv out of his head since their first encounter three months ago so when she emails him inviting him to join her on a cruise he jumps at the chance.

Liv has been hurt badly by a cheating ex-fiance and she has her heart on lockdown in the aftermath. She has just barely been able to climb out of a deep depression but she is basically drifting from one day to the next, existing but not truly living. One night with a sexy Dom visiting from out of town lights her up in ways she has never experienced before, and it scares her badly enough to shut him out completely when he shows interest in getting to know her better. After all, if she was hurt ...more

Loving Liv.
WOW! WOW! SHAMWOW ! What do I say about this book! I loved Stacey Kennedys Club Sin Series. It was a series that I read when I was in a slump and had kind of given up on reading. That series reignited a spark and a love of reading for me. Those stories were so passionate and well done. When I signed up to review the Gone Wild Series, I did not make the connection that Stacey Kennedy was writing one of the books. I went into it because of my love for Avery Flynn. Imagine my pure

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review

A wedding in Vegas was the reason Liv Sloane and Miles Schantz saw each other and got acquainted. Liv worked as a personal assistant in a real estate agency in San Fransisco. Miles lived in Las Vegas he was one of the members of the exclusive sex Club Sin and he runs the front club where that was located. Liv was heartbroken by her previous relationship, so no matter how good that night was she couldn't

Loving Liv (Gone Wild Book 5)!

Loving Liz is the fifth book in the new Gone Wild series. Each book is written by a different author, and as such, each has a unique feel and story for each friends story. Five friends embark on a singles party cruise...accidentally.

Liz is guarding her heart after her ex cheated on her with multiple women. To be on a singles cruise is not what she thought she would be doing with her college friends. Liz met Miles at a wedding and they had a hot sexy one night

This is my first Stacey Kennedy book, but it won't be my last.

This is part of a multi-author series that all released on the same day, so I've been reading them all, and they are all very different based on the authors' writing styles and genres, but they are all thoroughly enjoyable.

Liv is closed off to love after dealing with a cheating fiance, and she's still drifting from day to day and struggling with her emotions. She has a wild night with an out of towner that introduces her to BDSM, and

Loving Liv by Stacey Kennedy is the fifth in the multi-author Gone Wild series. It is connected to Ms Kennedy's Club Sin series and tells Miles Schantz's story.

Miles Schantz and Liv Sloane meet by chance at a mutual friend's wedding celebration. Their chemistry is immediate and powerful. Liv's previous relationship did a number on her though, and she's understandably reluctant to allow that connection to grow despite Miles's willingness to pursue. When her friends plan a relaxing cruise for a

Liv is still reeling from the betrayal at the hands of her ex-fiance and she isnt about to trust anyone with her heart again especially since the whole experience has left her doubting her judgment when it comes to men. Spending a week with her friends from college is exactly the break that she needs but she didnt expect that the only man that has inspired feelings in her would be on cruise as well.

Liv and Miles are hot! I really liked their storyline, since it wasnt just a random meet up on board the ship, but planned by someone who knew one of the in advance. That added a little intrigue into a fun and very frisky couple! Word of warning, Miles is Dom, which I know could turn so readers off. While there isnt a lot of the lifestyle acted upon in this book, hes very up honest about it.
Above and beyond that, Miles does his best to bring Liv out of herself and help her experience fun, which

4 1/2 STARS!

Filled with heat, heart and happily ever afters! With the final book in the Gone Wild series, Stacey Kennedy delights readers with some familiar Club Sin faces! The characters were fresh and easy to relate to and the steam was off the charts!

After a heartbreak, Liz is wary ... of men, of love, of ever losing herself in that way again. She's really easy to relate to and sympathize with.

Miles is heart stopping. He hasn't been able to get Liz off his mind since their one night together
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Loving Liv by Stacey Kennedy is book 5 in the Gone Wild Series. This is the story of Miles Schantz and Liv Sloane. I did feel this was a standalone book. Liv has had her heart closed up for the last few years due to a broken engagement due to a cheating ex. The only time she left herself feel was a several months ago with a one night stand. So Liv thinks that this college friend cruise ship vacation is what she need to get going again. What she is surprised to see is her one night stand...Miles. ...more

Loving Liv was a short(ish) but packed a heat filled punch. Lawd, the chemistry between Liv & Miles tried to make my kindle explode in flames. This was the first book that I've read in this series, but I have the others, so while I've probably gone out of order, the point is that I get to keep reading. Liv is wound up tight, has trust issues, and when she goes on a cruise with friends, she sees Miles, unaware that he got an invite, which he believed was from her. Anyway, he makes due, and ...more

Loving Liv is the last book in the Gone Wild series and it definitely was my favorite out of them so far! Stacey Kennedy did a great job with this book! This series is about a group of friends that go on a cruise expecting it to be a relaxing vacay but it is a singles cruise with a lot of FUN times- *Wink, Wink, Nudge, Nudge*

This is Liv's story and if anyone needs a good time, it is this lady! I definitely would not mind checking out the series that Miles was in previous because this book was

This was a really great story. Miles is a dominant, but to me, he was anything but. He is looking for something in his life, he just doesnt know what. That is until he meets Liv and he becomes enthralled with her. Liv is scared to put herself out there after suffering a broken heart. She pushes Miles away. When her and her friends decide to take a cruise, she is shocked to find that Miles is there as well. Their chemistry is too strong to deny. These were such great characters. I loved how they ...more

Loving Liv is the fifth and final book in a series of interconnected standalone books. Each is written by a different author. Like the others, this takes place on a singles cruise a group of friends ended up on.

The writing is good and the author did a nice job with character building, but this just isn't my type of story or trope.

I understand this is also connected to a series she writes independent of this one. I have not read any of those books, but was not lost at all.

Thank you to the author

This is the fifth book in this series.
This is the third book I've read.
This is my favourite book in this series so far.
Liv and Miles have history. They had a wild night together at a friends wedding. Now they're on the cruise ship together.

I enjoyed how steamy this was. Especially because Miles is a Dom. The dynamic between he and Liv is explosive at best.

It also makes me interested to read the series that Miles is from by this author because her writing style is so quick and easy to read.

Andrea (Hammock and Read)
This on is the most steamy of the series and wow is it steamy!! These are fun, light, fast reads with a lot of steam but not a lot of plot. This one had more character development with Miles and the background of how they meet, and also her at home coworkers. There was more of this story off the boat which helped a lot.

This is my first book by Stacey Kennedy and will have to read some of her other books. As I did enjoy her writing.

Overall, 3 stars and 5 plus steam!!
