Some like It Wild by M. Leighton
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
3.5 Wild Stars
Some Like it Wild is a sweet, short and easy read.
Laney is a preacher’s daughter and a good girl. Before Laney went to college, she had a brief encounter with Jake, it was very short, but enough to last an impression on both. Years later, she catches her fiancé cheating and she leaves him. Laney goes back to town and help Jake with his family estate. Jake doesn’t do relationships and just wants to get into Laney’s pants, but the more they get to know each other, they realize there is an attraction they can’t control.
I have mixed feelings for Some Like it Wild.
The Things that worked for me
I liked how short and sweet the book is. I’m a huge fan of easy read books and there was too much drama and none that make me want to pull my hair out.
I liked the story line. I always like a sweet girl meeting the bad boy. Who doesn’t want to be corrupted by a bad boy?
I also like how there wasn’t any flash backs. Yes, Jake and Laney did have a small moment in the past, but it wasn’t drawn out and it was a very adorable opening.
There was enough tension and drama to keep me interested and a slight love triangle (not really) with Laney’s fiancé showing up in the picture.
The steam and chemistry between Laney and Jake was nice. There was a nice slow build up with enough tension to keep me going and interested.
The Things that did not work for me
I found tension between Laney and her father very difficult. Laney never explained why she broke up with her ex and so her father keeps on telling Laney to go back to her ex fiancé. What’s the big deal in saying, “hey dad, my ex cheated on me, that is why I don’t want to get back with him”.
I also didn’t like the fact that the father didn’t like Jake because he was a bad boy. Okay, sure I’ve read a lot of books where the dad doesn’t like the Hero, but I wanted something different. Even when Jake tries to does good, somehow it seems like the bad is always is his fault. I didn’t get it and it frustrated me.
Overall, the read was sweet and good. I did have issues with the dad, but I enjoyed Laney and Jake’s story. If you were a fan of the series, I recommend you continuing.
