In the first book of the series, we follow a newly graduate Harvard student, Erica, as she starts up her own business while juggling a budding relationship with entrepreneur billionaire Blake.

The book reminds me a lot of the Crossfire series and I love it. I feel myself getting deeply involved with these characters and wanting to know what is going to happen next with them. They have some issues about them that makes you interested to know what got them to this point in their lives.

Some issues. Erica’s dilemma doesn’t seem like it really effected her too much. I have a hard time thinking that she would just be willing to jump into a sexual relationship considering what happened (you could probably guess within first few chapters). The ability for her not to trust is there but that’s about it. I would have liked to have seen more of a struggle come from her and see how her relationship with Blake help her be better.

What kept this at a good rating is the love and romance. Wild put enough in there to keep you satisfied 😉 but not so much that it’s overload (i.e. Fifty Shades of Gray). Also the romance actual has a point in the story and not just there because it has to be in order to qualify as ‘romance’. Blake has got all the elements that we love to see in a hero and as fans of the book relate to Erica, we find ourselves picturing us in her shoes. Their love is pure and makes us think that not everyone out there is a jerk and maybe there is someone for all of us.

There are qualities about this book that are very ‘cookie cutter’. Female is a strong independent outside the bedroom with a dark past. Man is a control freak in and out of the bedroom but makes exceptions with her. I do like that Erica is more along the lines of Eva from Crossfire where she demands things from the man, rather then be the damsel in distress like Ana was in Fifty.

Rating: B
