When you grow up surrounded by hockey players you know one thing for sure, I was never going to settle down with one.
Heck, I didn’t even know what icing was. I was too busy climbing the corporate ladder, becoming one of the most successful realtors in New York City.
I wasn’t interested in dating or anything that got in my way.
First, he was my client and then he became my friend.
My parents told me I skated before I walked.
When I was eighteen I was drafted into the N.H.L third overall, playing in Los Angeles—the city of dreams.
What more could I ask for? I played hard, but eventually, I partied even harder.
Five years later I was traded a week after I entered rehab.
There was no time for anything except my health and making sure I’d come out on top. I had to be better.
There wasn’t another option.
One of the rules of recovery was ‘don’t fall in love’ and I made it a top priority. She was off limits in every single way.
Until it was too late
One night, one decision, one act can derail everything.
When push comes to shove, I’m only certain that, This is Wild.
“The house of cards is going to fall soon, and I don’t want you to get crushed by it.”
“One time. One kiss. And I know it’s a kiss that I’ll be looking for, for my whole life.”
This Is Wild is absolute perfection. I mean, this book slayed me in all the right ways. I’m talking cue the tears and hold my heartstrings because I just couldn’t get enough of this angsty story.
From the moment I started reading This Is Wild, I knew this book was going to be special. Viktor and Zoe captivated me instantly. Their story is real, raw and oh so satisfying. Zoe is the total package. She’s beautiful, smart and sassy. She has a huge and generous heart and doesn’t date hockey players. Then we have Viktor. Viktor was on top of the world in LA. Living the life and partying. Five years later, all that partying will catch up to him and before he knows it, he’ll find himself at rock bottom. His world has been turned upside down and changes will need to be made. He’s been offered a second chance. He’s just got to pull himself out of the dark and take it…..
This Is Wild is an emotional second chance romance. This emotional read will put your emotions through the paces and deliver all the feels. This story is intense at times and deals with some very real, very raw subject matter. Viktor’s fight is not for the faint of heart, and I couldn’t help but be in awe of his strength and determination. He wasn’t perfect, but was determined to become a better man. I loved the way he felt about Zoe. He liked her, but knew that his recovery needed to come first. He didn’t want to make promises that he couldn’t keep. The chemistry and pull between Viktor and Zoe was just everything. I loved watching their friendship develop and see their journey unfold.
This Is Wild is the kind of story that will leave you breathless and begging for more. Viktor and Zoe’s story is consuming and will have you devouring all of the words. This Is Wild was a wonderful book to spend my day getting swept up in. I loved every second of Viktor and Zoe’s story and I know that it’s one that will be staying with me…

You can find her, in four inch heels no less, in the car chauffeuring kids, or
possibly with her husband scheduling his business trips. It’s a good thing her
characters do what she says, because even her Labrador doesn’t listen to her…FACEBOOK | TWITTER | INSTAGRAM | FACEBOOK READER GROUP | FOLLOW ON AMAZON
