"Things are bound to get steamy with WILD!"

Fresh Fiction Review

Wild
Sophie Jordan

Reviewed by Annie Tegelan
Posted February 7, 2015

New Adult

In the last installment to Sophie Jordan's The Ivy Chronicles, WILD takes on a bland and predictable heroine name Georgia and gives her the avenue to be a little bit bad. After a horrible breakup with her boyfriend, Georgia is feeling a little down and unwanted. In an attempt to get back at him, she tries her luck at the campus kink club where she meets Logan Mulvaney. Though younger, he has years on her in the sexual department and is willing to show her some new tricks. As you can expect, things are bound to get steamy with WILD!

While I have enjoyed this series as a whole, the premise of this book seems to be fixed on getting back at her old boyfriend. While empowering, it also starts the book off on a bad foot because we have a heroine who is desperate enough to go to places where she wouldn't normally be if it hadn't been for the recent breakup. As expected, Georgia makes a lot of mistakes, too many for me to forgive if I'm honest. The biggest complaint I had was that Logan is good enough to be with when alone. However, she doesn't want to be seen with him in public. This not only makes me feel bad for the hero, but it also creates major setbacks in the romance department, not to mention putting the heroine in a bad light. As a result, the author made it very difficult for readers to like Georgia's character.

Jordan focuses a lot on the sex, using it as a way to heal Georgia's heart. I was looking for more development in the romance where Georgia quits feeling bitter and starts to embrace who she is, rather than trying to be this "wild" character that isn't her. Though I enjoyed the hero immensely, I can't say that the rest of the story drove me wild.

SUMMARY

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.
