Every time I pick up a Lexi Ryan book I know I'm in for a roller coaster ride of heartache. But like an addict, I crave her words, and am completely intoxicated by the plethora of emotions that sweep through me with each flip of the page. I almost squealed when I realized that Lizzy finally got her own story. I have loved, and at times despised, her while reading other character's books, so when Ryan gave her the lead I was thrilled to get to know her even better. Something Wild (The free prequel novella) set up Sam and Liz's story so perfectly, and I was so excited to continue their journey to love. If this novella was anything to go by, it was going to be one HOTTT, sexy adventure with more than enough turmoil and anguish, but I fell in love with them both, and I wanted nothing more than to see them together. This book gave me everything it promised and so much more. These two people, each a little broken with their fair share of skeletons in the closet, seemed the perfect fit, only they couldn't see it, or just refused to. To watch them get over each and every obstacle only solidified their place in my heart, and I was their cheerleader the entire way through. But, aside from Sam and Liz's whirlwind love story, this book added the mystery of Riverrat69. Who was he? Was it Sam, as Liz only hoped and wished. I was on the edge of my seat the more involved Liz got and, the closer she got to meeting her online lover, the more intriguing this story became. When the final bomb landed, shrapnel lodged in my heart from the massive explosion, and I am still trying to recover from that particular attack. It was awe-inspiring and brilliant, and I NEED more.

It's a safe bet that any time Lexi Ryan has a new series launching, I'm going to be all over it. I love everything about her writing – from the characters to the romance to the sexy times and even the totally *wicked* cliffys she leaves us with after each new book. I snagged this FREE* novella (*at time of posting) as soon as I heard about it and if you're thinking about reading the Reckless & Real series, you should do the same. After reading the first full-length book in the series, I can't say it's *required* reading before the series, but it certainly helps introduce the characters and the back story.  Something Wild is hot. It's a quick read with a likable heroine (who is actually the twin sister of the main character in Lexi's Here & Now series) and a smoking hot, dirty talkin' hero with commitment issues. Liz and Sam have known each other for years and travel in the same circle of friends. They have an undeniable chemistry and they're sick of fighting their attraction. The sexual tension is thick and, when it all explodes, it is scorching hot (and a little dirty)... just how I like my books.  This novella was the perfect tease of what's to come. I've read the first book, Something Reckless, and it was incredible. I devoured both of these books, back to back, in a matter of mere hours. I couldn't have stopped if I wanted to. Lexi has a way of completely ensnaring you in a story and holding on until the very last page. If you're a new adult fan, you need to be reading this series.

A very well-written free prequel to the author's Reckless and Real series with a naturally hot blonde that nurses a 4 year crush on a handsome player banker's son with a secret. High school and adult humor, language, and explicit sex with BDSM tendencies. Cliffhanger to new series.

4 stars This was a great lead into this new series starring Liz and Sam.  The chemistry between these two is amazing.  We get to see how Liz first began lusting after Sam.  How Sam rejected Liz causing her to run into the arms of another man.   Liz shows everyone a good face.  She is always the life of the party, fun going but inside she is a mess.  She has had a crush on Sam for years and just wants to be wanted by him; even if just for 1 night.   Sam has secrets that seem to keep him from allowing himself to think with his heart.  He has no problem thinking with his dick.  He is absolutely the guy you would want a night with, Sam does no strings.  He is willing to give Liz a night if she can deal with it being just one night.  No strings.  No feelings.  Just raw emotionless sex.   But can sex be just that.  Nothing but sex?  Can Liz keep her heart out of it?  And what about Sam?  There is something different about Liz that speaks to Sam will he be able to keep his feeling in check too?

Loved it! Ready for more! Makes me want to start over at the beginning of New Hope just to enjoy all the characters again!

WHOAH!!!! this is one smokin hot little prequel that sucked me right into the next book. I haven't read any of her previous books but I'll be correcting that RIGHT NOW!  This is one amazing author and one great read.  I look forward to the rest of the series.

I'm so excited that we're getting the Sam and Liz story. I was really hoping for this. The prequel did not disappoint. It gives a great back story from both POV's and how their relationship came to be as it is both from perception and actual events. It's flirty, the sexual tension is palpable and you can practically see the physical attraction. Liz has had a thing for Sam since she was a young girl. It's great that Lexi took us back to the events that transpired when Liz was 17 so we as readers are not stuck playing the guessing game. It gives us a solid foundation to the mindset of the characters and gave further insight into the behavior from past books. I look forward to watching their story unfold and highly recommend this book.

OH WOW!!! This is Something Wild alright and is the perfect title for Sam and Liz…. This is an amazingly H-O-T prequel to a new series called Reckless and Real, based in the familiar town of New Hope and are characters we know and love. I love this story and can’t wait to get my hands on Something Reckless!!! I love Lexi Ryan and this story is definitely the beginning of something awesome!

I'm not really sure how I feel about this book. It was a big time tease. It will definitely leave you begging to know more. I'm also not a huge Sam fan, but I know I will eventually love him!!! Liz has had a crush on Sam for years. She tried to seduce him and he turned her away. She has never forgotten what he did, but she still can't help but want him. Even knowing how big of a manwhore he is. But can she leave it at just one night? Sam is a man who doesn't do love. He is content to have his fill of woman. A new one every night. He has wanted Liz, but when she tried to seduce him she was a minor. He couldn't do that to her. But now when his life is in turmoil he gets a chance at a night with Liz. But can he turn her down again? Or will he give in and risk hurting her again? This is a prelude to Sam and Lizzy's books, and I cannot wait to find out more about them. I really like Liz and it is heartbreaking to see how she thinks and the pain she is going to go through with Sam, because we know it isn't going to be easy.

Something Wild - Love, loss and misunderstandings - 5++ stars We first met Liz and Sam in the New Hope and Here and Now Series, along with her twin sister, Hanna. This is just a short prequel to their story, but it is definitely quintessential Lexi. We get lots of emotion, along with the sexual tension and characters that are very well developed. We get a lot of back story here and I loved the way Lexi throws curve balls at you during the telling. I can hardly wait for Something Reckless to come out, just so I can find out what happened in the intervening timeframe and how these two will have to fight to get to the end . I may just have to go back and read the other books just to remind myself of how everyone is tied together. You certainly DON'T want to miss this new series. **Complimentary Copy provided by Author for an honest review.**
