Now for my Thoughts:
I freaking loved this book. Granted I have not really found an M. Leighton hated the book yet, but anyway it was great. I loved the flash back in the beginning. It was cute and Showed us That Laney had a little bit of a wild side before we ever really got to know her.
She was the good girl but it was not over the top or annoying. Could you tell there was more to her than what she would admit to herself. The story was as much about her finding herself as finding love.
Jake, oh, Jake.
He is the sexy bad boy you can never get enough of. Jake was Able to bring out the best in Laney and give her the strength she needed to go after what she wants. We do not really get to know about what happened between him and his father until the end but my god That was messed up. Who freakin 'That says to a child. Jake was amazing and loving even When He was not trying to be.
That I thought the progression of Their relationship was great. It was not insta-love, it was not even insta-sex. In the beginning he had to work for it and that's how it Should Be.
Now the ex-fiancée was a total douche and a complete manipulator. I still wonder what would have happened is Laney got to say what she needed to in the bar. But Also it was probably better for Jake to Realize what he was giving up.
Their reunion was great and so was the ending. I loved everything about it. Plus Who could read That marshmallow scenes and not fall in love with this book.
All in all, Some Like It Wild better be in your Goodreads to-read shelf. It was a fun book to read and Everyone should enjoy it. Ans as with all of her books.
