The Wild Ones by M. Leighton-New Adult Contemporary Romance
Kindle format given by author for review/ARC
Summary:Passion as hot as midnight in the South and love as wild as the horses they tame.
Camille “Cami” Hines is the darling daughter of the South’s champion thoroughbred breeder, Jack Hines. She has a pedigree that rivals some of her father’s best horses. Other than feeling a little suffocated at times, Cami thought she was pretty happy with her boyfriend, her life and her future.
But that was before she met Patrick Henley.
“Trick” blurs the lines between what Cami wants and what is expected of her. He’s considered the “help,” which is forbidden fruit as far as her father is concerned, not to mention that Trick would be fired if he ever laid a hand on her. And Trick needs his job. Desperately. His family depends on him.
The heart wants what the heart wants, though, and Trick and Cami are drawn to each other despite the obstacles. At least the ones they know of.
When Trick stumbles upon a note from his father, it triggers a series of revelations that could ruin what he and Cami have worked so hard to overcome. It turns out there’s more to Trick’s presence at the ranch than either of them knew, secrets that could tear them apart.
Occasionally, a book will come along and blow me away. Well, this was one of those books. I can honestly tell you that this is one of my top books of the year and easily one of my new all-time favorites. I couldn't put the book down. The best word to describe this book is...GORGEOUS! I already want to read it again.
I really, truly loved Cami. I love how true to herself she is. She absolutely can't fight her attraction to Trick and she takes a chance on him. She believes in him, trusts him, and can't keep her hands off him. Not that I blame her. That boy is smokin! I loved that she finally stood up to her father. She believed in the love that she and Trick had. It was such a beautiful love story.
Trick is such a good guy. He knows he's hot and he definitely plays that up, but he's not arrogant about it. He's a hard worker and is dedicated to his family. When Trick makes a commitment, he's all in. He's a man who is gentle when he needs to be and rougher when he wants to have a little fun. He loves Cami for who she is. Trick is easily one of the best male leads I've ever met.
I absolutely LOVED Jenna. She had me cracking up in every scene she's in. She's honest to a fault and is a true friend to Cami. I also loved that she and Rusty got together. They are so cute!
I really could go on and on about how much I loved this book. I have so many pages highlighted, it's ridiculous! Line for line the story kept me entertained. I laughed, cried, had to cool myself off from all the steamy moments, and I felt the love. I mean, really felt it. My heart was so full at the end of this book.
M. Leighton has delivered a masterpiece. As a fan of her work, I knew this was going to be a story that I loved, but in my opinion, this is her best book to date. She's got such a clean writing style and the characters she creates become so real. I feel like I'm there with them. I feel like I know them. I believe that's a true sign of quality writing.
The Wild Ones is the kind of book that stays in your head for days. I'm already trying to figure out when I can read it again. I'm so excited for the release of this beautiful book and CAN. NOT. WAIT for everyone to meet Cami and Trick! Because I loved this book so much, I'm going to do an eBook giveaway of 2 copies of The Wild Ones! Enter below.
