Wild by Sophie Jordan is the third book in The Ivy Chronicles series. This is the first book in the series that I read and can be read as a stand-alone. Characters from the previous two books pop in and out all throughout the book but they do not add to any confusion if you haven’t read the other books.
I initially read this book because I was interested about the plot. Who doesn’t want to read about a good girl paired with a bad boy? I also do not read a lot of contemporary romance and surprisingly, I enjoyed this book! I love the balance between Georgia and Logan. Of course, the age difference between the two (Georgia is a few years older than Logan) adds a new angle to the good girl/bad boy trope. Despite Georgia being the older of the two, Logan seems to be more mature than she is. I love how Logan’s back story revealed the responsible man that he is and not the devil may care playboy that everyone believes him to be.
I was a little annoyed at Georgia, though. She wasn’t what I would call an awesome heroine. She was, as the blurb said: ‘Boring. Predictable. Tame.” Although I didn’t like her as much, I thought she was a good match for Logan and by the end of the book, she was able to stand up for herself.
Definitely a must read, Wild is a steamy NA romance perfect for reading before school starts!
