Passion as hot as midnight in the South and love as wild as the horses they tame.
Camille “Cami” Hines is the darling daughter of the South’s champion thoroughbred breeder, Jack Hines. She has a pedigree that rivals some of her father’s best horses. Other than feeling a little suffocated at times, Cami thought she was pretty happy with her boyfriend, her life and her future. 
But that was before she met Patrick Henley.
“Trick” blurs the lines between what Cami wants and what is expected of her. He’s considered the “help,” which is forbidden fruit as far as her father is concerned, not to mention that Trick would be fired if he ever laid a hand on her. And Trick needs his job. Desperately. His family depends on him.
The heart wants what the heart wants, though, and Trick and Cami are drawn to each other despite the obstacles. At least the ones they know of. 
When Trick stumbles upon a note from his father, it triggers a series of revelations that could ruin what he and Cami have worked so hard to overcome. It turns out there’s more to Trick’s presence at the ranch than either of them knew, secrets that could tear them apart.

I saw so, so many rave reviews for The Wild Ones before I signed up for the blog tour. I was really excited to read it, and then last week, right before I picked up the book to start, I got a little nervous. I don’t read too many “hyped” books right away for my blog. I normally wait a little while. What if I didn’t love it as much as everyone? My expectations were pretty high, so I was slightly worried that it wouldn’t measure up. Boy was I wrong? I LOVED The Wild Ones. It is one of those books that deserves every bit of praise it got, and then some. 

I am such a character driven reader, that if you give me awesome characters that I can relate to, or that make me feel something towards them- it almost guarantees that I will enjoy a book. And The Wild Ones has such great characters. Trick is amazing and Cami is pretty cool herself. I loved that neither character could fit into their own stereotypical box. Trick was a little bit of a player, at least he was used to girls liking him, but he is also so sweet and caring and responsible. He is so hardworking! I admired him- in more than one way. 😉 Plus, it doesn’t hurt that he is super hot. I mean really hot, some of the things that he said- OH BOY! He had me right from the beginning when he said “please choose treat”. Shoot, he can be my treat any day! And Cami and kind and generous, but also feisty  I loved the extra flare that she brought to the story. 

The Wild Ones seriously has it all. It reminded me of an Abbi Glines New Adult book, and you guys know how much I love Abbi! It is the perfect example of the New Adult genre. There is a sizzling romance, a great plot and beyond awesome characters. The Wild Ones took me on an emotional rollercoaster ride. I was happy, I was sad, and I just couldn’t get enough of it. If you like contemporary romances, or even if you just tolerate them- you NEED to read The Wild Ones. You won’t be sorry.
