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.
Quick & Dirty: Sexy heartfelt story that was the perfect ending to a wonderful series. All new adult contemporary romance fans should pick this one up!
Opening Sentence: “I’m sorry, Georgia, it’s just, just…”
Georgia has just recently broke up with her long time boyfriend. They have dated since high school and she always thought that they would get married. When he dumped her he said some things that were hurtful, but unfortunately true as well. She has always been a good girl, and being wild has never been one of her traits. But just to prove everyone wrong she decides to attend a secret sex club with one of her friends. Upon arriving she runs into Logan, one of her good friend’s younger brother. He might still be in high school but when it comes to sexual experience he is well beyond his years.
Right away Logan tells Georgia that she doesn’t belong and tries to escort her out, but she is tired of being the good girl everyone thinks she is. So to show him she can be just as wild as anyone else she decides to kiss him. Georgia has kissed guys but none of them made her feel anything close to what she felt when kissing Logan. One thing leads to another and before she knows it things are escalating faster than she was expecting. But even though Georgia knows that they couldn’t be more wrong for each other she just can’t seem to stay away from Logan!
Personally, I really loved Georgia. I read in a few reviews that a lot of people found some of the things she did really annoying. While I did find her frustrating at times, I also thought that she was a very realistic character. Of course she is going to be scared to try something new. She has spent her entire life pleasing everyone else, and she has just finally realized that she was never truly happy. The boy she spent four years with ended up being a total jerk, and her parents are super controlling. Big life changes like Georgia experiences throughout the story take time to adjust to, so when Logan comes charging into her life with all of his wild ideas it made complete since to me that she would be very wary of him. Her journey of self discovery was heartbreaking, frustrating, and written perfectly. I felt a very strong connection with her character and I am so glad I got to read her story. Out of the three girls featured in the series, I think she was actually my favorite girl!
From the moment I met Logan in Foreplay I was instantly intrigued by him. He is an 18 year old boy that has pretty much slept through most of the college girls at Dartford. He knows how sexy and charming he is and he’s not ashamed of it. At first you think that Logan is just a shallow guy that is just looking for a good time, but as you get to know him you realize that there is so much more to him. Yes, he has rightfully earned his reputation as a man-whore, but he is always upfront and honest with girls. He also had to learn to grow up a lot faster than most people because of his home life. His chemistry with Georgia is electric and man do they have seriously hot sexual tension between them. I loved how he was so opposite of her, but in so many ways they were perfect for each other. While I completely loved Logan, I would have liked to gotten to know him just a little bit better. I felt that some things about him were left unanswered which disappointed me, but I guess it leaves more to the imagination.
Wild was a sexy story filled with heartbreak, love, and growing up. I was so excited to be back in the world of Dartford college, and all the wonderful characters that reside in it! I loved that we got glimpses into the past characters lives, but it was refreshing to see the story from a different POV. That’s one of my favorite things about companion novels, you get reacquainted with characters you love, but you also get to met new ones. Like the other books in the series this one was very steamy and emotional. Jordan’s writing is always phenomenal, and she really knows how to tug at your heartstrings. I am so sad that this is the ending to the series because there are some characters that I would love to know what happened to them, but in all honesty this was a perfect ending. I would highly recommend this entire series to all new adult contemporary romance fans, it is a must read!
I felt him move behind me before I felt his hands on my arms. “No, you don’t,” he growled. “You don’t et to run away again.”
I squeaked as he hauled me back against his chest. My spine stiffened iron-rod straight against the wall of his broad chest. I felt my eyes go huge in my face. He was touching me. Again. And I was freaking out on the inside. I sucked in a deep breath, determined that my freak-out stayed internal only.
“Let me go. They’re coming.” My heart hammered violently in my chest and I didn’t know if it was because we were about to get busted by my friends or because his body felt so unbelievable against mine. Okay, fine. It was both.
