ABOUT WILD CHILD
Jenna Theopolis has always known what she wanted. Getting out of her small hometown of Greenfield was number one on her list of priorities. Until she met Rusty Catron.
Rusty’s fun-loving personality was the perfect match for Jenna’s inner wild child. But what started off as a summer fling quickly turns into something more. At least it does for Jenna.
Rusty has lived with the ghost of his father’s abandonment since he was a child, but now he’s beginning to feel the crippling effects of his scars. He wants to trust in Jenna, but deep down he doesn’t believe someone so wild and free can ever be tamed.
But tragedy strikes, pushing Jenna out of Greenfield and leaving Rusty with a choice to make—face his inner demons or lose the love of his life. Forever.
Wild Child is a lot of amazing writing packed into a novella. Jenna is Cami’s best friend and happens to be dating Cami’s fiancées best friend. Pretty great right? We did get introduced to Jenna and Rusty in the first book of this series. So much happens in this one. We get to see Cami and Trick’s wedding, which was great, and get a glimpse into Jenna and Rusty’s lives. Their relationship isn’t perfect but, it works for them. Rusty has a lot of abandonment issues due to his father leaving him and his mother. Jenna wants to get out of the small town they live in now that she has graduated college and start her life. In her words, that town took everything from her. Will they be able to get over their issues and find true love or will life break them?
I have a theory about Rusty. I don’t think he really wanted to stay in the small town. I think he was upset because he thought Jenna would leave him for a career. Typical man, assume things but, never talk about them. If these two had just sat down and had a serious conversation they could have avoided all the heartache. Rusty’s true colors do shine through, when Jenna needs him the most. The romance between these two is smoken hot! They definitely have that part down.
There are some intense situations that take place during this novella that left me on the edge of my seat and I could not put this one down. I finished it in one sitting. I love that we got to glimpse Rusty and Jenna’s story. It’s great when we get to see what’s going on with other characters in a series. I am anxiously waiting for Some Like it Wild (book #2)!!
