Some Like it Wild by M. Leighton

Goodreads Summary:
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.

My Review:
Who hasn’t had that fantasy of the bad boy who comes along and defiles their goodness?! Exactly! Everyone. Laney Holt is no different. She is the daughter of a preacher and has been a good girl her whole life. She has grown up, has a man that she’s going to marry and live happily ever after. That is until she is betrayed by the two people she loves. Laney then flees to her home town for her job, one appraising the house of none other than bad boy Jake Theopolis. He also happens to be a fireman! These two have a bit of a history. Laney knows Jake is a bad boy who gets what and who he wants when he wants them. Maybe this is just what she needs? Jake might be the perfect person to take her mind of things to take her on a trip on the wild side! 

Laney has a different family dynamic. Her Dad is still a big part of her life. He still tries to control her. He tries to do what he thinks is right for her even though he doesn’t know the whole story. What happened between Laney and her fiancĂ©e is still a secret. Laney hasn’t told her parents. I was so upset with her parents for putting her in such uncomfortable situations. 

Laney and Jake have a pretty hot relationship. There is a lot of sexual tension. It isn’t your typical relationship either. Laney doesn’t want to be a good girl anymore. She wants to get out of her shell and Jake is super willing to help her out. Laney experiences many new things with Jake. Laney quickly learns that she likes this new her. However her past is coming back to haunt her and Jake doesn’t like commitment. Will Jake be the hero? Will he be able to save Laney or will Laney save Jake?

A lot happens during this story! Some crazy events at the end leads to life altering changes for both Laney and Jake. M. Leighton does it again with this one guys. Pick it up people.
