RYDER: You are the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen, Laurel. And if that’s all of you I ever get to see, I’ll be the luckiest man in the world for having seen it.
I swallow hard. He wasn’t supposed to make it sweet. He was supposed to leave it dirty and inappropriate, so I could tell myself all he wanted was sex. That all he cared about was getting me naked, or if not that, then at least seeing me naked.
Instead, he turned it sweet. And I couldn’t tell myself any lies to keep me on my high horse.
Books one and two of Wilder's dark, addictive erotic trilogy depicted the amnesiac X now known by her birth name, Isabel Maria de la Vega as a captive; in this powerful third book, she emerges as her own woman. It takes the near death of her lover Logan to snap her out of her self-destructive concupiscence for the brutal Caleb. However, once she's partially free of his ferocious grasp, Isabel begins to have flashbacks to an idyllic childhood that ended when a fatal car crash left her orphaned, in a coma, and easy prey for the much older Caleb. The more she learns, the more she understands how Caleb's obsession may have saved her body, only to imprison her soul. He refuses to let go of her even now that she's living with Logan. As Isabel gains emotional strength, Wilder gradually dials back the use of second-person voice that marked the earlier books, allowing her to claim her own story; Logan calls her Is, a fitting name for a woman finally learning how to exist on her own terms. This superb contemporary erotic novel stands alone but will best be appreciated as the culmination of a remarkable trilogy.
Honestly great collections bought them all
I NEED MORE
I kid you not these books keep getting better and better as we go along and I so can’t wait until the last installment!! I absolutely loved Ryder and Laurel’s story mostly because I love the single mom trope cause a sexy man swooping in to save the day (but the female characters also being super strong and independent) is my absolute favorite. One thing I would have loved is the dual point of view cause I would have loved hearing from Ryder’s point of view as the story progressed as well. I could also do with a huge book involving all the characters point of views after this series is over so... can that be a thing? Cause I’d totally love that. 😅
I love this series and the amazing men of Dad Bods. The friendships are fierce and the men are all alpha.
Laurel and Ryder are the couple featured in Nailed. They have similar relationship histories and are hesitant to commit again. But, when Ryder ghosts Laurel she seeks him out and calls him on it.
You will see same wonderful characters from the previous books in the interconnected, stand-alone series. It is always great to read about them.
One click Nailed for some heat on your ereader and follow the journey of self discovery that Laurel and Ryder take with a little help from their friends.
