I read the books in this series completely out of order, lol.

I started off reading Mystery Man, then Motorcycle Man, and lastly Law Man, back to back a few months ago. I can’t believe it took me this long to pick up Wild Man, although after I finished Mystery Man, I didn’t care for Brock, I was all for Hawk beating him to a pulp, but then I read Law Man, and I saw him in a different light. The new light that was shed on his character in Mitch’s book got me curious, but not enough to pick this book up immediately.

The title was what really made me cave and finally read this book. I wanted to know what made Brock Lucas a wild man when pretty much every man in this series was leaning towards the crazy side. I wanted to know what made him different.

I really didn’t have any high hopes for the heroine, Tess, because the women in this series have been kind of weak and I saw them as an unnecessary evil that I would have to deal with (sad but true). Tess surprised me though, she didn’t at the beginning but I forgive first time bumps in the road. She was very self aware even when she thought she wasn’t, she was a solid, reliable character that’s always needed in a chaotic storyline (and this story had some drama, a lot of it). She was kind hearted and fierce which are qualities that I always look for in my heroine. It made me giddy to know that Brock not only loved that about her, but didn’t try to tone it down or stifle it. Just because she was kind hearted and fierce she wasn’t a ditz with it as most character can be. When things weren’t going the way she hoped she didn’t come unglued, she stuck it out, and communicated with her man so they were both on the same page.

I want to say that Wild Man is my favorite out of the whole series but I keep thinking of Mystery Man and all the feels I had with that book. I’ll just chalk it down to a tie between the two.

Elivra needs her own book. (If she does can somebody put the title in the comments section, please).

This story flowed really well for me, there wasn’t a whole lot of those alpha male dialogues that Kristen Ashley’s alpha’s like sitting their women down to have, which I was grateful for because it doesn’t seem fair that I have to listen to the speech but can’t get the man (it’s not fair!). Because this is a Kristen Ashley book it’s already a must read but with how good the story was I might be revisiting this story in the near future, maybe when I’m in a reading slump.

About Kristen Ashley

Kristen Ashley was born in Gary, Indiana, USA. She nearly killed her mother and herself making it into the world, seeing as she had the umbilical cord wrapped around her neck (already attempting to accessorise and she hadn’t taken her first breath!).

Kristen grew up in Brownsburg, Indiana but has lived in Denver, Colorado and the West Country of England. Thus she has been blessed to have friends and family around the globe. Her posse is loopy (to say the least) but loopy is good when you want to write.

Kristen was raised in a house with a large and multi-generational family. They lived on a very small farm in a small town in the heartland and existed amongst the strains of Glenn Miller, The Everly Brothers, REO Speedwagon and Whitesnake (and the wardrobes that matched).

Needless to say, growing up in a house full of music, clothes and love was a good way to grow up.

And as she keeps growing up, it keeps getting better.
