Overview

An independent woman, a controlling man, and one wild one-night stand...

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 life gets real and the past and present collide in a dangerous storm of lust and obsession.

Kat is running from a past that she would love to forget. She figures that the small town of Rock Island, Maine is a good place to start over. She's not looking for a relationship but one night with Wild thwarts her plans. Lane Wild usually doesn't go back for more than seconds with a girl, but there is something about Kat that he is addicted to and he can't get enough of her. They agree to a no strings, friends with benefits "relationship" but they don't realize how quickly they are getting under each other's skin. Can they both shove aside their demons and open up to something more? Or will Kat's past catch up with her and destroy the new life she has started to build? Sometimes a girl just needs a fun, smutty and well, wild, read and that is exactly what author Adriane Leigh provided. Yes there is some angst and emotion and even a good dose of suspense. But what Wild is overflowing with is hot, dirty, smutty sex. And I loved every damn minute of it. Lane Wild has a filthy mouth and a cocky smirk and really, how can a girl not fall for that? This book delivered just what I needed and I'm looking forward to Ridge's story next. This was the first time I've read anything by Adriane Leigh and after spending time with this smuttastic book, I plan on reading all of her past novels as well.

Kat Kennedy moved to the coast of Maine for a fresh start. A secret she has hidden and ran from and wants it that way. One night of passion and lust with Tall, Dark, and Handsome Lane Wild is the last thing she needs. So she plans to avoid him at all costs, what she doesn't know is that Lane is intrigued. He hasn't been into anyone for more than a one nighter since his ex-fiance. Things between them builds and mounts into something powerful that both of them are unable to deny. I think I have found my new book boyfriend! Lane Wild is H-O-T...HOT! Adriane Leigh is one of my new favorites...The Wild series is going to be good..I have a feeling! This although rather short book was funny, sexy, and steamy. There is romance, drama, intrigue, and mysterious secrets that are uncovered from both characters. Lane and Kat both have pasts that neither have dealt with but sooner than later that is going to come and bite each of them in the a$$. Once I started reading this I got so sucked in that it was damn near over before I realized it. Most definitely wish there was more, but don't you always wish that when a book is that good in your opinion.

Within the first time couple chapters I didn't think this was a book for me and probably wouldn't finish it. A few hours later I was finished and really glad I had because Kat and Lane were a great  couple, and each had a past to work through.

Wild was one hell of a ride. It was a short book, but it packed quite a punch. With a secretive protagonist, a dirty talkin' sexy as hell alpha male, lots of seriously steamy sexy scenes and a twist that took me completely by surprise, I found myself unable to put it down until I got end. Wild is part of a series of standalones, so there's not a cliffhanger, but I'd be lying if I didn't say I wanted more of Kat and Lane (er, Wild).  I loved the characters in this book. A librarian's assistant with a wild side, I found Kat to be very interesting. It was obvious she was keeping a secret, but I couldn't have predicted the depth of what she was hiding. Lane (Wild) just might be my new favorite alpha male. He knew what he wanted, he wasn't afraid to admit it. His dirty talk made me blush. It was obvious he knew his way around the female body and wow. Just wow. Both Kat and Lane were complicated characters, but they were likable and relatable. Their chemistry was off the charts. The relationship that was supposed to be friends with benefits only ended up being a hell of a lot more and I loved reading about the growth and change the relationship brought both of these characters.  Wow. What a book. I don't read a lot of erotica, but if more of it was written like this, I might consider it. Maybe it is and I'm unfairly judging it and really missing something. What do you think?

I found nothing special in this book. Too much of the F bomb and touched on mff which was a total turnoff. Don't think I' ll be reading anymore by this author.

An adventure that brings great, if exceedingly smutty, characters together. They use the F word so often that it isnt really offensive. I liked the descriptions of outrageous behavior by this really vulnerable, sweet couple. The author alternated POV which worked extremely well in this story.

These books were a refreshing change of pace for me, and also a introduction to a new author, and I have to say they left a really good first impression. Each book introduces readers to a tortured alpha male character and each one was told from the mans perspective, which made the stories very intriguing. It gave readers glimpses into the minds of men and the opportunity to see things from a different point of view, and I think Ms.Leigh did a excellent job at telling their side of the story. Each story is packed with passion, drama, chemistry, intensity, and some mind blowing, toe curling sex scenes! If you like steamy stories with strong alpha male characters, then these are DEFINITELY right up your alley!!! The men of the Wild series are sure to leave you with a smile on your face, and satisfy every one of your reading needs...and then some!!

I enjoyed this book very much! I loved how sassy Kat is and I loved Lane. He was so sure of himself and cocky but still was sweet on the inside! Even thought both have been through a lot of tragedy and need to heal. They way they fight against their relationship being anything more then physical the harder they fall. This story had me on the edge of my seat. There is just enough mixture of drama, steam, and romance to keep you turning the pages.

3 1/2 stars...I never thought that I would say this, but the first half of the book contained too much sex and not enough plot. The sex is written very well, though. It's a good thing because there is A LOT of it. That man truly is WILD. There's a complete connection between Wild (Lane) and Kat both physically and in chemistry. Those 2 can't seem to be within touching distance without becoming naked sooner rather than later - and with quite impressive variety. While they both are keeping quite a few secrets tucked away from each other they also willingly lie to themselves and each other that this is no strings sex with no emotional attachment. As it turns out, both are running from their own lives and refuse to acknowledge it aloud. As their bond grows, they SLOWLY reveal information about their pasts...but they (of course) don't reveal everything. That's where the "Where the heck did that come from?" action that unfolds later in the book comes into play. I'll admit that I was surprised by everyone's actions during the huge twist. I'm hoping we'll learn a little more of the issues between Lane and Ridge during Ridge's story later this year. I have some questions that really haven't been answered. You'll be happy to know that there is an HEA with NO cliff. This is definately worth the read!

I gave Wild 3.5 Stars! This was a steamy one! Lane Wild (called Wild by everyone) loves women. He knows he has his pick so why settle with one? Kat Kennedy is an independent woman that is not looking for a relationship at all. When these two meet sparks fly and it takes off from there. I really enjoyed this one. Wild was sexy, funny, arrogant, and I loved him! His filthy mouth made this book interesting. He seemed so anti-relationship until the moment he set eyes on Kat. He claimed her in that moment without realizing it. Kat has a past and moved away to a quiet little town in Maine. She vows to stay away from men, but with Wild she finds herself letting down her walls little by little. They completely fell in love without realizing it. Two people who were not supposed to fall in love did anyway! I enjoyed both Wild and Kat as characters. Their chemistry was amazing. I enjoyed the writing as it flowed well. I laughed a lot and even swooned over Wild. While he was quite the dirty talker he was quite the romantic at heart. Just don’t tell him I said that! :)  Overall, this was a great read. The characters, including the secondary ones were enjoyable. I wish the ending was longer as there was mystery that I didn’t expect to occur. This made for a very suspenseful part of the book. It definitely set it a part from other adult contemporary novels.Also, I found Wild and Kat to be downright adorable, especially when they were no longer avoiding their feelings. If you are a fan of steamy and romantic reads then this is for you!

Wild took me from one emotion to another, got me so engrossed in these characters and where each of their stories were going to take the book as a whole. It is brilliantly written, you will be connected emotionally to the story, and to Lane and Kat as well! This was a great read, definitely recommend :)

I was given this book as an ARC for an honest review.  I gave this book 5 dirty stars.  This is the first book that I have read from this Author. This is Kat and Wild's (Lane) story, this book starts off with a one night stand with lots of sex, and never stops with the hot sex.  It is steamy!!!!  Kat has just moved to this small fishing town in Maine, her attiude is just like her fiery red hair, she rents a small cabin on the out skirts of the town and gets a part time job at the library. All seems normal with her but Kat is hiding a big secret that when it comes out might destroy her and everyone else around her that is close. So for that she has up walls. She doesn't want to let anyone in. Wild is a beautiful damaged soul too!! And he is the towns most popular man! Everyone wants a piece of him, but after he meets the beautiful Kat he only has eyes for one woman! And getting her to see that is going to be a job in itself!  With both of these two only looking for wild sex, and no commitments what is going to happen when they both start feeling more? Will they give in to the feelings or will the both continue to run from everything that could be just that everything they have always wanted? I like this story it was full of steamy hotness, and bad attitudes that just kept them coming back and wanting more, Kat has a mouth on her that Wild just couldn't get enough of. You never knew what she was going to say, or what she was going to do.  One minute she was content and then she would remember that she couldn't let anyone close and she would push him away.  I love how I thought he would be the one to be running and it turned out that is was her. I love her strong character and how much she had been through. It was either get stronger or let it break you. And she put up walls and she is hard to get through to, but even through all that she is very strong and doesn't give up without a fight. She loves with her whole heart, and underneath all of the tough exterior she is sweet, and loving and amazing, she just needs someone that is willing to stick around and love her through all of it.  Thank you for this story Adriane I really enjoyed it and I look forward to reading the next book in the series! <3

***This book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.*** If you’re a fan of a dirty talkin’ man, you’re going to want to one-click this puppy! Holy smokes. This is probably one of the hottest books I’ve ever read. Wild had a naughty mouth on him, and I loved it! I really enjoyed the premise of this book–a one night stand you have every intention of never seeing again. Until he pops up around every single corner, but what else can you expect in a small town? There was an aura of mystery from the get-go–you were given glimpses of Kat and Wild’s one-night stand, but it doesn’t all come together for a bit. Wild and Kat are insistent they are just sleeping together, so both are hesitant to reveal much about themselves, and since they are together and so guarded throughout most of the book, even their thoughts are closed off. I was glad we got both points of view in this book, because Kat was so closed off. I think it softened the reader to a character that might have been a bit abrasive if we’d only seen her side of things. Wild picked up on things about her that we wouldn’t have seen as the reader without his perspective. I do have to say–if you want to really enjoy this book, you need to check your own morals at the door and realize that not everyone makes the same choices regarding relationships–no matter what type of relationship that might be. There was a point when Kat and Wild really frustrated me, but that works for me. I like a story that gets under my skin and makes me think twice about things. This book definitely did that. With a dirty talker like Wild, the sex was obviously amazing in this book. His and Kat’s chemistry was explosive, and Wild was more than able to put his money where his…errr…mouth was. I also liked that the more they insisted they were ‘casual,’ the more both of them balked at the idea, until Wild turned into one of those possessive, mark-his-territory kind of men. The more alpha a man is in the books I read, the sexier he becomes. I love a man that takes what he wants! This may have been my first book by Adriane Leigh, but it sure as hell wasn’t my last! If you’re looking for a ‘Wild’,’ steamy ride with some twists, turns, and screaming orgasms along the way, this book is definitely for you! For more reviews, please visit Gigi's Book Blog!
