Description: A good girl goes fabulously bad in the final book in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s sexy New Adult romance series, in which three Ivy League suite-mates seek higher knowledge of just how far they can go.
Months after her boyfriend dumped her, Georgia can still hear the insults he hurled at her. Boring. Predictable. Tame. Tired of feeling bad, she’s ready to change her image, and go a little wild. What better way to prove her ex wrong than a hot night of sexual adventure at the secret campus kink club?
In the shadowy den of the kink club, she unexpectedly runs into Logan Mulvaney, her friend’s little brother. A player extraordinaire too hot for his own good, he may be younger, but the guy is light years ahead when it comes to sexual experience. Now he’s telling her to go home—“good girls” don’t belong here!
Georgia is tired of having others define her. She’s going to teach Logan a lesson he won’t forget—one white hot, mind-wrecking kiss . . . that leads to another . . . and another . . . and. . . . Realizing she’s way in over her head, Georgia runs.
Only Logan won’t let her go. Everywhere she goes he’s there, making her want every inch of him. Making her forget who she is. Who he is. And just how wrong they are for each other.
I absolutely loved Wild. So much so that I read it in one afternoon. Were there issues with the book that bothered me? Sure. Did I want to shake some sense into Georgia on more than one occasion? Yes, absolutely. Is Logan super sexy? Incredibly so.
Wild is the third book in The Ivy Chronicles series. The book can be read alone, or in order in the series. (And really, why would you not read the whole series?) Georgia has always been the good girl. Til her boyfriend of many years breaks up with her for being boring. This is the impetus for Georgia to start being Wild. Logan is Reece’s brother, the main male character from Foreplay. He is also a frequenter of the campus “kink club” and more than willing to help Georgia with her desire to be more uncontrolled. Logan is not shy in expressing his feelings toward Georgia. But, Georgia is conflicted. She’s interested in Logan, but tries to stay away from him. He’s younger, still in high school, and the brother of her friend’s boyfriend.
I was glad to read more of Logan’s back-story in Wild, after being a secondary character in the other two books of the series. Despite a difficult childhood, Logan is more mature than Georgia. I did empathize with Georgia. She has spent her life putting everyone else’s desires before her own. This was my main issue with Georgia. Every time she made a decision for someone else, instead of herself, my frustration level grew. I was glad when she finally started putting herself first.
I was also pleased to see a nice flip in the normal trope of older man with a younger woman. Someone needs to be the younger person in a relationship. And it doesn’t always need to be the woman.
If you are looking for a New Adult Contemporary romance, I think Wild, and the other books in The Ivy Chronicles, is a great read.
