He’s someone she can’t trust…
She’s someone he thinks he knows…
Violet Wilson is a wallflower. Shy, serious, and accident-prone, she’s got a bad habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The night she’s forced to pose with her friend might just be the worst time of all—that’s when she meets Jet Blevins. She knows better than to get involved with someone like him, but he touches her in ways she never expected, never wanted before.
On the outside, Jet is a typical rocker, an arrogant lead guitarist who unapologetically lives a wild lifestyle. But on the inside, he’s battling demons and using the stage to escape the troubles of his past and the addictions of his present. Until the night he sees Violet standing at the back of the room. She brings his life into focus. She knows his secrets. She’s the girl he can’t forget, and the one thing he craves more than his addiction.
But can they ever hope to have a future when their very foundation is nothing but lies?
I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Michelle Leighton seriously knows how to write a freakin HOT story!! It’s like she knows exactly what I need! It has everything I love, a hot, swoonworthy male, a beautiful, strong heroine, an incredible attraction between the two and angst that will rip your heart out. There’s Wild, Then There’s you had all those things, and more. I could not put it down! I swear, she never disappoints me!!!
We meet Violet Wilson, a fixer by nature. She has such a huge heart—always ready to help all that cross her path. She’s a social worker—a perfect occupation for her, and never wants to let anyone down. Time and time again, she puts herself out there trying to save all the people she loves. Only problem is, she hasn’t figured out how to make herself happy in the process. She’s witnessed so many of her loved ones being crushed, that she’s afraid to face any heartbreak of her own.
“…A man in my life is trouble I don’t need. I’ve seen what love can do to a person. It makes them weak and frail and can utterly ruin their life. It can be as destructive as any addiction.”
Jet Blevins is a full-on heartbreaker. He’s used to getting what he wants when he wants it. He thrives on attention, having women at his beck and call, and he never hears the word “No”. They meet at a sex addicts anonymous meeting, and both of them should be running away from each other. But there is this magnetic pull that neither of them seem to be able to deny. His life is thrown off course when he meets Violet, and it’s the same for her.
“Violet. I want Violet, and I’ll do whatever it takes to have her. Period. End of story. And that is who I am. That is the real me.”
With both of them carrying secrets and lies that they choose to keep from each other, they move forward unable to hold back.
“You know, I’ve never thought violet was a color that had much light in it. But now, I’ll probably never look at it the same way again… Could be that I’ll never look at a lot of things the same way again.”
HOLY CRAP!!! SIGH… He makes me shiver!!!
Like all of Michelle’s stories, she throws in twists and turns that will leave you cursing at your kindle and wanting to strangle a character! But that’s what sucks you in. It’s like a drug… once you start—you can’t stop. The angst and tension builds and builds and you sit there helpless to do anything else until you finish the last word.
Lose yourself in There’s Wild, Then There’s You. Trust me, you’ll want to find your very own Jet that you can manhandle!!! Bravo, Michelle!!! Another fantastic read! Can’t wait to see what’s coming up next!!!
About M. Leighton
I was born and raised in the United States, and I’ve lived in several of the fabulous fifty. Though I currently live in the deep South, I spent much of my childhood up North and hope to return there one day. A few other things about me: I believe that sometimes you have to look really, REALLY hard to find the good in people, but it’s there. I believe that I’m shrinking (I swear five years ago I was two inches taller). I believe my husband is quite possibly one of the most amazing men in the entire world (I can’t be sure because I haven’t met all of them). I believe coffee and chocolate, when combined, could be the basis for world peace. I believe that Jesus rocks and communism doesn’t. I believe that white makes me look fat and black collects lint. I believe summer’s too hot, winter’s too cold and fall was made for football. I like dogs better than cats and the first movie in a trilogy is invariably the best. But most of all, I believe that love conquers all.
