First was The Wild Ones. Now, the next book in M. Leighton's Wild Ones series...
How far will a good girl go for the bad boy she loves?
Laney Holt is a preacher’s daughter. A good girl. Her only goal was to get married, have babies, and live happily ever after, just like her parents. Only that didn’t happen. The two people closest to her betrayed her, and Laney’s dreams came crashing down. Now she’s left with an empty space she doesn’t know how to fill. Until she meets Jake Theopolis, a daredevil with a death wish who has heartbreaker written all over him.
Jake has no interest in thinking beyond the here and now. All he wants out of life is the next rush, the next “feel-good” thing to keep his mind off the pain of his past. His latest rush? Showing Laney there’s more to life than being a good girl—and that going bad can be so much fun. Her only concern now is how she can ever hope to satisfy the wild side of a boy like Jake. She’s looking forward to trying. And so is Jake.
If you love The Wild Ones, you'll be just as wild for M. Leighton's Bad Boys series which includes Down to You, Up to Me, and Everything for Us.
Leighton's second Wild Ones contemporary (after The Wild Ones) sizzles with passion and romance. Preacher's daughter Laney Holt is a paralegal working on itemizing the estate belonging to the Theopolis family. This leads her to bad boy Jake Theopolis, the gorgeous man she once kissed at a local South Carolina fair. When Laney's father pushes her to get back together with her smarmy ex-fianc , she defiantly leaves her parents' home and moves in with Jake. Jake slowly wears down Laney's defenses, knowing that the idyllic setting of his family's peach farm is the perfect venue for seduction. But the no-strings-attached sex soon involves deeper emotions, and Jake begins to wish that he were capable of offering Laney a committed relationship. Leighton's intensely sensuous novel alternates between Laney and Jake's first-person perspectives, creating a heart-wrenching emotional story. Fans and newcomers will eagerly await the next book in the series.

This book is very detail romance book. You can see it coming the ending but still very good.
Scorcher of a book
Well M. Leighton has done it again...
She literally blows me away with each book that she writes. The way she draws you in and captures you with her intriguing characters, phenomenal storyline, and of course the torturous twists and turns leading up to the climatic end.
When I first met Laney I have to say I really liked her. She was spunky even though she had that shy demeanor. You are instantly enchanted by her....wanting to be her friend...heck...BEST friend.. LOL!!!
But, she is such a dynamic character. I love how she grew so much throughout this book. She is definitely a character that you genuinely enjoy reading about.
She embodied so many faucets to her...she is smart, strong, funny, compassionate...All of the amazing attributes of a heroine that you need to have in an out of this world awesome novel.
But lets not forget about her counterpart in all this awesomeness....Let me introduce you all to the hot and sexy Jake...Oh my word ladies!! This guys oozes sex appeal and thank goodness he is a firefighter because the heat he generates will cause you to internally combust!!!
Now, he's not all about the gorgeousness... No, this guy has so many layers to him. He is so much fun to be around yet he blocks Laney from getting too close. However, once those layers finally peel away, your heart melts for him and that is all I am going to say since I am now sweating from remembering all of this scorching hot man...*sighs heavily*
So, I think you know I loved this book. There were some astounding scenes that left me drooling for more of this explosive couple. I will say that I will never look at marshmallows the same again... *wink, wink*
Yeah, I bet you are now wondering what I am talking about...
Well...you will have to get this book and find out for yourself...
I definitely recommend you get this book today....
