Today, we are helping M. Leighton welcome her newest love story into the world. Happy birthday to Jake and Laney, the two main characters of Michelle’s latest book, SOME LIKE IT WILD. This is book 2 in the Wild Ones series and it’s available right now!
Want to meet this steamy couple?
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. With the betrayal of two people closest to her, 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.
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, M. Leighton, is a native of Ohio. She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, Michelle finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days Michelle enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you'll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren't roaming in that direction, she'll be riding wild horses, skiing the slopes of Aspen or scuba diving with a hot rock star, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.

She literally blows me away with each book that she writes. The way she draws you in and captures you with her intriguing characters, phenomenal storyline, and of course the torturous twists and turns leading up to the climatic end.
When I first met Laney I have to say I really liked her. She was spunky even though she had that shy demeanor. You are instantly enchanted by her....wanting to be her friend...heck...BEST friend.. LOL!!!
But, she is such a dynamic character. I love how she grew so much throughout this book. She is definitely a character that you genuinely enjoy reading about.
She embodied so many faucets to her...she is smart, strong, funny, compassionate...All of the amazing attributes of a heroine that you need to have in an out of this world awesome novel.
But lets not forget about her counterpart in all this awesomeness....Let me introduce you all to the hot and sexy Jake...Oh my word ladies!! This guys oozes sex appeal and thank goodness he is a firefighter because the heat he generates will cause you to internally combust!!!
Now, he's not all about the gorgeousness... No, this guy has so many layers to him. He is so much fun to be around yet he blocks Laney from getting too close. However, once those layers finally peel away, your heart melts for him and that is all I am going to say since I am now sweating from remembering all of this scorching hot man...*sighs heavily*
So, I think you know I loved this book. There were some astounding scenes that left me drooling for more of this explosive couple. I will say that I will never look at marshmallows the same again... *wink, wink*
Yeah, I bet you are now wondering what I am talking about...
Well...you will have to get this book and find out for yourself...
I definitely recommend you get this book today....
