Love So Wild by Marquita Valentine

Love So Wild by Marquita Valentine

Genre: Contemporary Romance

Publishing Date: December 13th, 2017


Pilot Elijah Lawson always knew he’d return to Jessamine, marry a hometown girl and settle into very predictable life. After all, he made promises to his parents that once he’d gotten his fill of adventure that he would do exactly that… and Eli was a man of his word. Only he’s never been able to get the bewitching redhead he’d fallen hard for two years earlier out of his head and he’s afraid that no woman in Jessamine will ever measure up.

Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop his family from trying to set him up with every single woman in town… until Skye Holland shows up on his doorstep.

The only reason Skye Holland moved back to North Carolina was so she could do the right thing for her one year old son. A boy, after all, needed his father, while she… she simply needed a fresh start. But first, she has to let Eli know that their red-hot affair had consequences. Consequences she has no intentions of repeating, no matter how many old feelings come rushing to the surface when they’re together.

Too bad for Skye that Elijah has other ideas and he’s not going to let this second chance at love get away again.





Add to GoodReads:



She rushed out of the kitchen before anyone could stop her, going as fast as she could without breaking into a run. But by the time she got to her room, Elijah had caught up. He grabbed her by the arm and pushed her inside, closing the door behind them
“Mind telling me what that was all about?” he asked, even as sparks of desire tripped up and down her arm from where their skin touched.


Did he feel it, too?


“I was only stating the truth,” she insisted.


“Your truth is to tell us that we shouldn’t bother getting to know you because all that matters is Miles?”


She closed her eyes for a moment. “Of course, he’s all that matters. I stopped mattering as soon as he was born!”


“Well, that’s not how we do things in this family. You matter just as much.”

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The last single Lawson gets a second chance with the wild woman from his past in Love So Wild. Elijah and Skye have chemistry in spades, a tension between them that is felt by the reader. When Skye shows up out of the blue on Elijah’s doorstep. A whirlwind romance from the past flashes through his head as he meets just who she brought along with her.

The two are perfect together. Elijah knows this, and has on heck of a time convincing Skye. She’s strong-minded and has fears only she can fully understand, and get over. Her fears hold her back, but at the same time, make her the driven woman that she is.

As a long time fan of the authors work, I loved the glimpses at past characters. A new reader to Ms. Valentine’s work might find themselves a bit confused at points, but I don’t feel it would detract from overall enjoyment. The story was paced well, and the characters are well developed. I was left with a few questions in regards to an event in the story, but throughly enjoyed it.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

It’s breaking my heart to know this series has come to its end but what a way to end it.
This was just the perfect way to round up my favorite series by far. Everyone that knows me and my reading habits know how much I love Marquita and her Lawson men.

Elijah and Skye were really good match even though it took a lot of work from Elijah’s part to convince Skye that they belong together. The strong dynamic of Lawson family is so evident in this book with how they accepted and loved the new edition to the family. Since this is the end to an amazing series I feel I got cheated out and this book should be longer or preferable never end as I want to keep reading about this men and their women.

I must say that I tried really hard to make Elijah my No.1 Lawson man but Tristan is still my favorite (on offense :P) .
