How far will a good girl go for the bad boy she loves?
Laney Holt is a preacher’s daughter. A good girl. Her only goal was to get married, have babies, and live happily ever after, just like her parents. Only that didn’t happen. The two people closest to her betrayed her, and Laney’s dreams came crashing down. Now she’s left with an empty space she doesn’t know how to fill. Until she meets Jake Theopolis, a daredevil with a death wish who has heartbreaker written all over him.
Jake has no interest in thinking beyond the here and now. All he wants out of life is the next rush, the next “feel-good” thing to keep his mind off the pain of his past. His latest rush? Showing Laney there’s more to life than being a good girl—and that going bad can be so much fun. Her only concern now is how she can ever hope to satisfy the wild side of a boy like Jake. She’s looking forward to trying. And so is Jake.
If you love The Wild Ones, you'll be just as wild for M. Leighton's Bad Boys series which includes Down to You, Up to Me, and Everything for Us.

I loved the little flash back at the beginning. It was a nice touch and a great brief glance at all the characters. The characters throughout were well developed and I enjoyed to people they became. I didn't like how obvious the author made it so early on and how repetitive they were about having the characters constantly saying that they wanted the other but it would never happen. We get it but we also all know it's absolutely going to happen so it just got annoying. The author could have teased against the relationship but to me the end was obvious. I did love the twist and turns though. The freeing adventures that were taken were relatable and exciting. The peeing in the woods I laughed out loud to because that would have been very embarrassing. I loved the ending that he got to use what he does for a living to make her fall even more in love with him. Great read. I couldn't stop thinking about this plot and the characters as I was reading and listening to other books. I gave it five stars because it was a steamy, fun read.
