To be completely honest with you, I was not expecting to love this book the way that I did. I don't know why my expectations weren't crazy high, but I just didn't go into Wilder thinking it could be one of my most FAVORITE reads of the year! But man, was I wrong. I was blown away. And even now, days after finishing, I'm still getting full body shivers at just the thought of these characters. I'm telling you, this is one of those books you just DON'T SEE COMING. It's one of those novels that sweeps you off your feet, totally BLOWING YOU AWAY. These characters are such a treat for the reader. They take charge and steal your attention completely.
Heart, sizzle, feels and so much swoon, Wilder is a unique, refreshing, charming, suspenseful, sexy and addicting ride. A full-on "on the edge of your seat" read. Once I opened the novel and started reading, I was DONE. I could not put it down. I didn't want to put it down. And when it was over, I was left GASPING, thinking, "WHOA. I FREAKING LOVED THAT!" An utter delight! It's everything you want in a read and more. The FULL PACKAGE from start to finish.
Sexy, organic dialogue.
A fun, UNIQUE and captivating plot line that I have NEVER seen in a book.
And ALPHAS that leave you weak-kneed.
Just fantastic. I cannot say enough good things.
Paxton Wilder is a daredevil! A reckless, charming ladies man with a grin and a hardy dose of charisma that has the ladies swooning by the dozens. As the son of an extremely wealthy business man, the world is Pax's oyster, so to speak. He lives each moment to the fullest, taking all the risks he can with his team called The Renegades.
The Renegades consist of Wilder (Paxton), Nova (Landon), Penna (Penelope) and Nick. They run a YouTube channel that showcases their wild tricks via motocross, skydiving, zip lining, etc etc. It's Nitro Circus on crack. And if it hasn't been done before, The Renegades want to try it. They're the most well known adrenaline junkies in the world and they have an extreme following!
Paxton's father, however, is set on Paxton finishing his last year of college. That's all he's asking of his son. So he buys a cruise ship, sets up a college, and The Renegades are placed on board the Athena for a year long study at sea program.
Leah (our leading lady) is brought in as Pax's tutor. He needs a little help. And if Pax doesn't pass his last year of schooling, his father will pull funding for a documentary that he's desperate to make. But the moment that Pax lays eyes on Leah, it's interest and lust at first sight. She's not what he was expecting and he likes that. She's a challenge. One he wants to conquer!
Leah is excited for this year abroad. She was supposed to go on the trip with her friend Rachel, but Rachel is out sick with mono for the next 3 months, so Leah is on her own and this opportunity is one she could not pass it up! However, the moment she lays eyes on Paxton Wilder, she can sense trouble. And she knows she needs to be careful, or else the upcoming months are going to be a little more than interesting.
Paxton and Leah have a chemistry that literally burns the pages of your kindle. The two of them are down right intoxicating. Like I said above, once you start reading, you cannot stop. Every page, every word, gets better and better and better. You almost can't believe how much, how deep, and how far you're falling! It's a wild, thrilling and heart tugging ride that you want to last forever. These characters are charming, endearing, and captivating.
I truly fell in love with this book. With the unique story line. The pacing. The writing. The dynamic between the characters. The dialogue. The steamy scenes. With just every single thing. I wasn't expecting it. I wasn't expecting to be completely and utterly blown away! But I am. I was. And it is no doubt one of my FAVORITES for 2016! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT.
