There's Wild, Then There's You (The Wild Ones #3) by M. Leighton - #review
There's Wild, Then There's You (The Wild Ones #3)


He’s someone she can’t trust…

She’s someone he thinks he knows…

Violet Wilson is a wallflower. Shy, serious, and accident-prone, she’s got a bad habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The night she’s forced to pose with her friend might just be the worst time of all—that’s when she meets Jet Blevins. She knows better than to get involved with someone like him, but he touches her in ways she never expected, never wanted before.

On the outside, Jet is a typical rocker, an arrogant lead guitarist who unapologetically lives a wild lifestyle. But on the inside, he’s battling demons and using the stage to escape the troubles of his past and the addictions of his present. Until the night he sees Violet standing at the back of the room. She brings his life into focus. She knows his secrets. She’s the girl he can’t forget, and the one thing he craves more than his addiction.

But can they ever hope to have a future when their very foundation is nothing but lies?

My There's Wild, Then There's You Review ...

Here's is the conundrum for me.  I did like this book but yet at the same time it wasn't memorable.  I read it last week and now I'm finding it hard to recall the full story to give my review.  

After reading the synopsis, I liked the idea of the book and I'm a huge fan of M. Leighton and this series but with Violet and Jet it left me wanting more from them.  

For Violet who was supposed to be strong, brave and forgiving to me came across a bit of a wall flower and weak instead.  Jet was a rock star with his personal demons. 

They met under the wrong circumstances but at the right time in their lives but they both kept secrets that could have destroyed them.  To me Violet's secret was less damaging then Jet's but there was more damage from Violet's then Jet's that left me a bit baffled.  Because Violet character was a bit meh for me I didn't feel the great epic love connection between the two. 

In the end I do still like this series and I did like this book and Jet and Violet but after the first books in this series I was wanting more substance from these two.  However, it is a book about second chances and righting your wrongs so that always makes me happy.
