Wild: A Small Town Romance by Ashley Bostock

Ever since my divorce became final, I decided to start putting myself first. The problem is when I think of putting myself first, I think of my son's biological father, Thatcher Patterson. The man that wanted nothing to do with me when he found out I was pregnant.
When he left me, he took my heart with him and I've never gotten it back.

Suddenly my son and I are forced to live with Thatcher indefinitely and it's difficult to remember all the reasons why I don't trust him. The way he looks at me, the way he is with our son and the way he makes me feel are all the reasons I'm running toward him instead of away from him.

But if I run toward him, how long will it take for him to up and run the other way from us, much like he did before?


I've never stopped loving Abigail Murphy or wishing I could be the perfect dad to my son. So, when a stipulation in my late grandfather's will states that I must have an heir to claim my inheritance, it's the push I need to get them in my life.

Because I need them as much as I need that money. With my business in the red, I have no other option. As the deadline creeps closer, I never counted on the guilt I would feel at trying to get a two for one deal. When the two of them move in with me, I'm reminded of all the wonderful things this woman has to offer and all the emotions she makes me feel.

She makes me feel worthy. Wanted. Loved. She makes me feel like I could be the man she needs and just maybe I could be the father my son deserves - the father I've been so afraid to be.

Wild A Small Town Romance by Ashley Bostock is the second book in her Love in Lone Star series. I really wanted to like this story but I just couldn’t get into the book whatsoever. More times than not I found myself not wanting to finish the book, but wanting to give it a fair shake I continued on. The main characters Thatcher and Abby have a long history that is very tumultuous and ends with her being pregnant and alone and Thatch riding off into the sun. Thatcher doesn’t come back into the picture until he needs to claim his son for his own gains. Trouble ensues and the budding love between Thatch and Abby is put in danger. I really wanted to like this story but I just couldn’t attach to any of the characters and felt like the majority of the story was forced. The first book in this series was really great so I had high hopes for this one as well, but unfortunately it just didn’t do it for me.

Wild: A Small Town Romance (Love in Lone Star Book 2) by Ashley Bostock is the second story in her Love in Lone Star series. This is a stand alone story but I highly suggest reading the first book as some of the characters will pop in to see you in this book too. It will give you some of the background information to help the story flow together. I enjoy seeing characters from previous books in the current installment of the series. It is exciting to see what happened to them. I enjoy this author's attention to detail and her ability to write a contemporary romance novel. Her characters are true to life and connectable. They have a way of just popping right off the page and keeping you engaged until the last page. You will enjoy the roller coaster ride of emotions that they will take you on. Find out what happens to this couple as they start their journey of finding their family and what is important to them. Abigail Murphy has decided to put herself first since her divorce became final. Her problem with this is that when she thinks of putting herself first she thinks of her son's father, Thatcher Patterson. He wanted nothing to do with her when he found out that she was going to have a baby. He took her heart with him when he left and she hasn't gotten it back yet. When a situation occurs and she and her son are forced to live with him, what will she do? It is hard for her to remember the reasons she can't stand him. Every time she looks into his eyes, see him the way he is with their son, she forgets she is running away from him instead of running to him. If she gives him the chance, will he up and leave them again? Can she trust him not to hurt her? Thatcher Patterson has never stopped loving her or wanting to have their son in his life. But when his grandfather pulled a fast one and left a stipulation in his will, what will he do? He must have an heir so this gives him the perfect opportunity to do what he has always wanted, put them back into his life. He feels that he has no other option, with his business in the red. When they move in he is reminded all of the good things she is made up of. She makes him feel things he hasn't felt in awhile, wanted, loved, worthy. Abigail and Thatcher have a past and a child in common. She is just so broken because he was not willing to accept their baby. When he left, it crushed her. Will they be able to rebuild their relationship? Will they have a future together? When they start opening up to each other, will they realize that they still have feelings for each other? In my opinion they are both insecure about this relationship. He has some secrets and she is just plain afraid that he is going to leave again. They are strong characters that really do complete each other. The attraction is here from the beginning but will they act on it is the question. They will take you on a couple of twists and turns that you wont want to miss. They are just sweet and lovable characters. I can't wait to see who will be next in her books. Find out what happens to these characters. Will they ever find their HEA? This is my second book by Ashley Bostock and I know it won't be the last. Ashley grew up in Colorado and still lives there. When she is not writing, you can find her reading, traveling in a wanderlust's eyes, but to those who have not traveled so, she has traveled far. You will enjoy how she will keep you on the edge of your seat through most of this book.

Wild: A Small Town Romance (Love in Lone Star Book 2) by Ashley Bostock - 4 stars Wild is the second story of the Love in Lone Star series and can be read as a stand alone. Abby & Thatcher had that special "thing" back in high school. That first love that is all consuming, overpowering, life changing. Well life changed alright and they didn't end up together after all. Wild is about their second chance at love. I enjoyed this story and feel it's aptly titled "Small Town Romance". To live in a town where everyone knows everyone's business must be overwhelming. I can't imagine having to deal with that, yet how amazing it is when everyone comes together for a common cause. While Thatcher should have stepped up to the plate sooner and Abby should have demanded better things for herself, I kind of understood why everyone did what they did. Wild is well written, flowed nicely and got from point a to point b without too many deviations. The characters (including the town) contain a depth so it was quick to understand who was where and why. This was a quick read for me and while the sex was a bit descriptive, I would recommend it to my mom to read (telling her to flip over those pages of course - because she's my mom for goodness sake). I look forward to reading future installments of the "Love in the Lone Star" series.

Wild is the second book in Ashley Bostock’s Love in Lone Star series and I dived into it straight after I was done with the first book! The blurb was a bit controversial and I have to admit I went into it feeling a bit upset with one of the main characters but … So, Wild is the story of Abigail Murphy and Thatcher Patterson. On the surface one could say that Thatcher is a total jerk, he did not want to have anything to do with Abby when she got pregnant with his son and actually had his best friend Adrian to marry her so she would not suffer from the small town stigma of unwed pregnant woman. Well, the reality is much more complex and I think we, women, know too well that the minds of men work in convoluted ways and very often they are the reason for their downfall themselves. Back to Abby and Thatcher, after 5 years Abby is getting divorced and Thatcher wants a second chance and then things get even more complicated, if one could imagine that. I loved Ashley’s writing and even though I felt like strangling Thatcher too many times, at the end of the day, I forgave him and I was rooting for him. Abby, I could not imagine the life she was living, the way she supressed her feelings and needs and … so often we lose sight of ourselves when we become mothers. Wild was a great story of second chances in a small town where everyone is up in your business. Why don’t you grab a glass (or a bottle) of wine and come along on a ride to find out if second chances really work!

Wild is a second chance love story. I was not satisfied with the story, I read plenty of better one. The story is predictable with mediocre characters in which I didn’t fell in love. Thatcher and Abby what can I say about them? Abby marries her friend and Thatcher arranges it. And then he doesn’t notice that their marriage is platonic? I don’t know for me the plot is just wrong. Iti s just that everything dissapointed me. Just maybe the turtle was funny. I volunteered to review an ARC of this book for Netgelly

Wild is a well-written, interesting read. It is part of a series but can be read as a standalone. Thatcher and Abby are meant for each other, even if they both take some convincing, and even if some of that convincing has to come from beyond the grave. I enjoyed this book from cover to cover. It's got a great second chance romance that generates plenty of steam, a sweet little boy, and a bit of a mystery going on in town. The dialogue between characters kept the story moving and there were even a few chuckles along the way. I can't wait to see what's next in this series.
