“Sophie Jordan weaves captivating stories of intense yearning, undeniable heat and heaping helpings of swoon… Every. Time.” (Tammara Webber, New York Times Bestselling Author of Easy)
“[A] passionate, compelling story that captures the confusion and giddiness of young-adult romance and sexual experimentation....…[I]n Jordan’s expert hands, [readers] are given a sexy, textured and satisfying ride. An affecting, successful foray into the new-adult genre.” (Kirkus Reviews)
A gratifying story that is also hard to put down, Jordan’s series starter sets a high bar for new adult. (Library Journal (starred review))
Jordan makes her new-adult romance debut with a sexy love story that perfectly captures both the flirtatiously fun and emotionally tormenting aspects of college romances. (Booklist)
Praise for Foreplay: “Fun and Flirty—Foreplay was the perfect read! (Cora Carmack)
“A sexy, sweet love story that lingers with you long after you read that last line.””Sexy and sweet, you will fall in love with Reece right along with Pepper.” (Jennifer L. Armentrout/J. Lynn)
“Reece is like any good cocktail: strong, tempting and dangerous in large quantities. Having a guy like him behind the bar is sure to lead to a great time. I thought so and I’m sure you will too.” (Jay Crownover)
“Jordan’s third Ivy Chronicles novel (after Tease) perfectly fits the new adult mold, featuring a young woman with a bright future confidently exploring her sexuality before reaching a traditional happy ending.” (Publishers Weekly)
From the Back Cover
Months after her boyfriend dumped her, Georgia can still hear the insults he hurled at her. Boring. Predictable. Tame. Tired of feeling bad, she's ready to change her image and go a little wild. What better way to prove her ex wrong than a hot night of adventure at the secret campus kink club?
In the shadowy den of the club, she unexpectedly runs into Logan Mulvaney, her friend's little brother. A player extraordinaire too hot for his own good, he may be younger, but the guy is light-years ahead when it comes to the opposite sex. Now he's telling her to go home—"good girls" don't belong there!
Georgia is tired of having others define her. She's going to teach Logan a lesson he won't forget—one white-hot, mind-wrecking kiss . . . that leads to another . . . and another . . . and. . . . Realizing she's in way over her head, Georgia runs.
Only Logan won't let her go. Everywhere she goes he's there, making her want every inch of him. Making her forget who she is. Who he is. And just how wrong they are for each other.

Plot: When I first learned that Wild was going to center around Georgia and Logan, I turned my nose up in disgust. "Ewww Reece's little brother? He's still in high school." Luckily, Sophie Jordan addressed the thought that we were all thinking, dispelled any "grossness" we may have felt towards the coupling and created a memorable love story.
Characters: Unlike Emerson in Tease, Georgia stays true to her character portrayal. She's the girl who plays it safe, and when she is dumped by a long-term boyfriend she does the only thing that she can think of, she does something completely unsafe. The romance between Logan and Georgia is hot and heavy, but it revolves societal expectations which make their love story very precarious. As this is the last of a trilogy, Sophie makes sure to give us updates on the couples from the previous novels, and I'm not 100 percent sure I liked them on the fringes. I wanted to focus on the constant battle between Georgia and Logan, not see how happy everyone else is.
Wold Building: My biggest complaint about the lack of college life these Ivy girls had. Even though Wild takes place during summer vacation, I felt like I explored more of Dartmouth than I did in previous installments, and that was because academics played a large role in Georgia's life. But of course, Mulvaney's was the setting of choice.
Short N Sweet: Wild was a great final installment filled with sexual tension and emotion. It focused on doing what is expected and what is desired and is easily my favorite book of the series.
Georgia is a good college student under her mother's thumb. She was the product of a disastrous affair and her mother keeps her under stiff supervision in fear that Georgia will turn out like her hippie father. It's a little silly, but I could relate to Georgia's situation. When I was in college I had many friends who hid things from their parents in fear they would lose financial support. I saw friends major in degrees their parents chose and so on. So I felt like Georgia's situation was realistic in that sense. Her mother controls her money and all of her choices.
Something changes in Georgia though when she decides she wants to be her own person. She slowly starts down a path of finding independence. And Logan comes into her life at just the right time.
Logan was marvelous. My goodness I loved reading his character. The words from his mouth... just amazing. I honestly struggled with his age (OMG... high school) but he still won me over. I really didn't think I would see the couple as long term but, by the end, I did. I was sold. I believed in their love.
I loved that he's younger than her as it's refreshing to read about. I love that they are friends before lovers. I just loved them as a couple. It takes Georgia a long time to come to terms with her feelings for Logan. But I honestly felt it was realistic. I saw complaints on how long it took Georgia to trust Logan, but come on... he was still in high school when she first meets him! And knows him as a player. What college girl would throw herself at a kid who hooks up with everyone? It takes her time to get to know him and to overcome her first impressions, which I thought was totally understandable considering the circumstances.
Read this novel if you love alpha males, lusty sexy romance, novels with self-discovery and if you want to laugh and cry with these two crazy kids.
Now I know what you are thinking... another bad boy and good girl story? And yeah, essentially that is what we have here... BUT IT IS DONE SO WELL. I am not opposed to using a trope, just do the trope well and damn does Sophie do it well. The chemistry between these two is incredible! The tension is crazy and the steamy scenes are just that.... steamy (without being tacky). I also love that the book touches on New Adult elements outside the romance. Such as growing up and making decisions and drifting apart. These are things everyone deals with during their college years and I enjoyed seeing that portrayed. I liked watching Georgia learn that she had to stop living for everyone else (*cough*her mom*cough*) and start making decisions that made her life what she wanted it to be. I know I related to that aspect quite a bit, maybe not to the extremes of Georgia, but I could really understand how she felt.
All in all, Wild was a great addition to The Ivy Chronicles! This series is everything you expect from New Adult and somehow more. I am so sad to say goodbye to Georgia, Logan, Emerson, Shaw, Pepper, and Reece but I know I will be visiting them again!
