Synopsis: First was The Wild Ones. Now, the next book in M. Leighton's Wild Ones series...

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. The two people closest to her betrayed her, and 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.

If you love The Wild Ones, you'll be just as wild for M. Leighton's Bad Boys series which includes Down to You, Up to Me, and Everything for Us.

Review: 4.5 Stars - 4.5 Stars to M. Leighton and her latest release – Some like It Wild, the second book in her Wild Ones series! With two characters who couldn’t be more different from one another - a small town preacher’s daughter and the town bad boy who likes to take chances and feel alive in everything he does – they find out that sometimes opposites have things in common once you get below the surface and look past the status of birth or the shadow of a town where everyone knows you.

Laney Holt has always been good. Doing the right thing is what she knows and what she’s worked hard to always maintain. She knows what she wants – her very own happily ever after and she thinks she’s found just the right guy to make those dreams of getting married and having babies happen. However a betrayal by two people she believes she’s closest to cut deep and she takes an opportunity to leave and head home to get away from everything that’s hurt her and try to figure out what’s next.

Enter Jake Theopolis, town bad boy, with scars from his past that run deep. He’s an adrenalin junkie, firefighter and brother to Jenna from previous installments of the series. He also knows his way around a roasted marshmallow but you’ll have to read the book to know what I’m talking about… wow! Hot! And I DID love Jake. He might be a bit damaged but holy cow is this boy freaking amazing and yum-o! I think he’s one of my favorites from all of Michelle’s leading men.

The two come to an agreement of sorts that leads Laney to live a bit more on the dangerous side and for Jake to question some of the choices he’s made over the years.

One of the main things that you can always count on when it comes to Michelle’s books is the characters are always layered. They are always dealing with deeper rooted issues that take time to sort out and give the reader a chance to know and understand her characters on a larger scale. There’s depth and growth that once you finish reading you feel as if you know them as if they are real people in your life. At least for me that’s how I always feel.

I always come to the end of a story quicker than I realize and I’m always a bit sad when I finish one of Michelle’s books, yet I’m always happy that I was in another one of her worlds for a bit. She knows how to write amazing characters and stories and it’s for those two main reasons that I continue to come back for more. Michelle will always be an auto-buy/go-to author because I can count on quality.

I highly recommend this title to fans of this author, or if you’re looking for a great place to start with her books, I suggest starting with this series! While they can be read standalone I wouldn’t suggest it because each title might focus on a different set of characters, they are all intertwined within the same world. So, start at the first title in the series – The Wild Ones. Don’t forget about the novella – Wild Child and then Some Like it Wild comes next. The third installment in this series, There’s Wild, Then There’s You comes out later this year. Trust me, I think you’ll love them. Enjoy!
