A STARLET REVIEW: WILDER BY REBECCA YARROS

Synopsis:

He’s Paxton Wilder.

Twenty-two-year-old, tattooed, smoking-hot leader of the Renegades.

Five time X Games medalist.

The world is his playground—especially this year—and for the next nine months I’m stuck as his tutor on the Study at Sea program.

He’s too busy staging worldwide stunts for his documentary to get to class.

But if I can’t get him to take academics seriously, I’ll lose my scholarship…if I don’t lose my heart first.

Six unlikely friends on a nine-month cruise with the Study at Sea program will learn that chemistry is more than a subject and the best lessons aren’t taught in the classroom…but in the heart.

My Review

When Rebecca first announced this idea for these Wild boys that were adrenaline junkies on a cruise ship, I had to sit back and wonder how do you make that work?  What could you possibly do for extreme sports on a cruise ship?  But this isn’t just any cruise ship now is it!  No it’s custom tailored for the filming of a show for Paxton and his crew!  I have to say that from the very opening scenes Rebecca had me on the hook!  I literally could not put this down, and I even will tell you I dreamed about some of these stunts with them in these exotic places.

But these guys are so much more then adrenaline junkies.  They have deep seated regrets, fears and even deeper friendships.  Those statement through the good times and the bad, through think and thin.  These guys live it every day.  They are all carrying a little baggage which makes them so intriguing.  There is also this underlying current of suspense throughout the book that truly had me guessing the whole time.  I never for a minute suspected any of it!  Rebecca weaved that plot twist in masterfully, so much so that I didn’t see it coming!

You will be mesmerized by Paxton and his crew and you will fall in love with all of them.  Rebecca has a knack for making you feel just as much for her side characters in books, that your begging for their story to be written.  She will take you on a thrill ride of rocking and epic proportions in this book!  So much so that you will want to read it again right away just to get that thrill!  The highs and the lows in this book will leave you on a proverbial edge, and even though it’s a standalone you will be begging her for more!  More of all of them!

With each of her books, Rebecca stretches her literary mind and creates a new world that you want to immerse yourself in.  Every book just gets better.  I really didn’t think that she could top Jagger, but for me, Paxton has stolen my heart completely.  This story has complexity that I’ve come to love in her plot lines, and her imagination knows no limits with the locations, and stunts created by this dare devilishly handsome crew!  Get your copy now!  I promise Pax will steal your heart and soul!
