NA Review: The Wild Ones by M. Leighton

The Wild Ones (The Wild Ones #1)
by M. Leighton
Blurb by Goodreads
**MATURE CONTENT ADVISORY: May not be suitable for younger readers**

Passion as hot as midnight in the South and love as wild as the horses they tame.

Camille “Cami” Hines is the darling daughter of the South’s champion thoroughbred breeder, Jack Hines. She has a pedigree that rivals some of her father’s best horses. Other than feeling a little suffocated at times, Cami thought she was pretty happy with her boyfriend, her life and her future.

But that was before she met Patrick Henley.

“Trick” blurs the lines between what Cami wants and what is expected of her. He’s considered the “help,” which is forbidden fruit as far as her father is concerned, not to mention that Trick would be fired if he ever laid a hand on her. And Trick needs his job. Desperately. His family depends on him.

The heart wants what the heart wants, though, and Trick and Cami are drawn to each other despite the obstacles. At least the ones they know of.

When Trick stumbles upon a note from his father, it triggers a series of revelations that could ruin what he and Cami have worked so hard to overcome. It turns out there’s more to Trick’s presence at the ranch than either of them knew, secrets that could tear them apart.


Loved the Wild Ones and how M. Leighton was able to make alternating POV between the hero and heroine enjoyable. Their POVS blend nicely together continuing the scenes. Never repeating stuff.
I enjoyed how little by little you get the past of Trick and Cami. When their past comes up, it is nicely blended within the scene. Wow. Had a little twist I did not see coming.
They are perfect for each other. I loved how their relationship slowly builds from friendship to lovers. Trick is so swoon worthy on so many levels. I just loved how he put his life and college on hold to take care of his mom and sister.
I can not wait for Rusty and Jenna’s story in The Wild Child (The Wild Ones #2).
