Tour Hosted by: Love Between the Sheets
Kat Kennedy moved to the rugged coast of Maine to start a new life, but encountered much more than she bargained for in dark, dangerous, and seductive Lane Wild…
Desire and temptation smolder before she succumbs to her darkest fantasies with the captivating stranger. She doesn't expect to see him again after an explosive one-night stand leaves her breathless and craving more, but just like lightning in the darkness, he shows up in her life at the most unpredictable moments.
A sensual game of cat and mouse ensues before the attraction between them reaches a fever pitch—the magnetism combustible, the sexual tension nearly unbearable—and Kat finally abandons inhibition and explores the cunning, selfish, and sexual side of a world she's never known.
They have the perfect non-relationship—passion-fueled nights with no strings attached—until lifegets real and the past and present collide in a dangerous storm of lust and obsession

Holy cow! Talk about a smokin’ hot book! Adriane Leigh can sure steam up a scene! Being a fan of hers since Steel and Lace, I knew she could write some very sexy books. But mind you, she took things to a whole new level of hotness in WILD. I mean, a dirty talking alpha male?? Whoa. What a HUNK of man! Hot, sexy, and rough around the edges. Need I say more?
“And the scratches you left on my back remind me just what it felt like to be deep inside you.”
Kat Kennedy was new to the small town in Maine. One night at a bar, she met Lane Wild and they ended up having one heck of a hot and passionate ‘one night stand’. They didn’t even exchange names. Easy breezy, right? Wrong. You see, in a small town, everyone knows everyone and there’s only so many places you can go without running into each other. It seemed Kat could not escape Lane. Life had a funny way of working things out. Ha! Did it.
At the risk of sounding silly, I have to say that things between Kat and Lane got pretty…well, wild. Hell, there may or may not be some f/m/f action between them! *wink* Even though they were both hell bent on not having a “relationship”, as a reader, I felt their chemistry…their passion. I knew they both wanted more.
“I won’t let other pricks think they have a chance with you, because they fucking don’t.”
Lane may like things rough, but inside, he was a gentle man that cared for Kat. Actually, they BOTH cared for each other. They were just SO STUBBORN that they wouldn’t admit it…and I can’t say I blame them. They both had pasts, so I understood where they were coming from. However, there is one specific bar scene where they both pissed me off. Lane, for doing something STUPID and Kat for reacting the way she did and letting something happen afterward. Thankfully, Adriane Leigh does not write angst-driven scenes like this one and not fix things. Lane DID redeem himself, as did Kat. After this little situation, it seemed like things finally started coming together for them.
I could feel the pain coming off her in waves. This girl had been hurt so deeply, it was like there was no coming back. “Let me take care of you,” I murmured as I places a kiss on her temple.
Walls started to come down. They started to actually know each other. It wasn’t just about the hot sex anymore. They had done what they thought was impossible. They had become more than just “friends who fuck”.
“I needed her smile and her laugh; I needed her. Because as much as it twisted my gut to say it, I fucking loved her.”
And then, shit hit the fan.
Towards the end, a lot of things went down. There were surprises that made the plot even more interesting. In a way, it seemed like the story line got deeper. Adriane managed to make my heart race, break it, and put it back together in a matter of chapters. But relax, there IS a happy ending. In fact, I loved the Epilogue. I think I actually smiled while reading the entire thing! It was a really beautiful ending for Kat and Lane. They truly deserved it and I couldn’t have asked for a better one. I am now anxiously waiting for the next book, Ridge. This will be Lane’s brother’s book and I have a feeling Adriane will make it just as good as this one, if not better.
If you’re looking for a book with an alpha male, a HOT romance, and a little suspense, I recommend you go one-click Wild. You will not be disappointed.
