"5....10....20 - There are not enough stars for me to put on this little gem!!! ...This literally has me addicted on the first page. This was one of those books that you want to read slowly because you do not want it to end, but end up reading it in one sitting because you cannot put it down. The author definitely puts it all in there - action, suspense, love, and amazing characters. The second I finished this I was stalking trying to find out when the second book will be released." - The Next Great Read Book Review

About the Author

G.K. De Rosa has been an avid reader from a very young age. In fact, before she could even read, she tried fooling everyone into thinking that she could. At the precocious age of two, while living in Italy, she had memorized an entire children’s book in Italian and expertly turned the pages at the exact right moments of the story. As she grew up, she always enjoyed literature, no doubt having been instilled with a love of story telling from her early years in Catholic school where she was greatly influenced by exemplary teachers who taught her the value of English and Literature. Though she did not pursue writing in college and instead went for the more traditional route of International Business inspired by her love for travel and all things foreign, after a move to New York City, she found her creative writing side calling once again. She began writing a restaurant review blog, City Lights and Tasty Bites, detailing her other passion – food! The hectic hustle and bustle of the city, combined with long commuting times gave her the opportunity to spend more time reading and rekindled a lost love. After reading countless books in many diverse genres over the two years in New York City, and returning to her home state of Florida, she felt compelled to write something for herself. She had always felt particularly drawn to Young Adult novels and having been an eternal romantic at heart, a fantasy romance was a natural choice. She currently lives in South Florida with her real life Prince Charming and their fur baby, Nico the German Shepherd.

I was a given a free copy of this book through the We <3 YA Books! group in exchange for an honest review.

This book was decent and with some polishing it could be really good. The protagonist Celeste is an 18 year old high school senior who will be attending NYU after graduation. Right before her senior prom, her life intersects with two extremely good looking brothers who are new to the small town. They have been watching her since their arrival, and she's attracted to them as much as they're attracted to her.

At times this story was difficult for me to follow mainly because I felt the transitions were choppy. During chapters, the point of view would abruptly change between characters in the middle of a paragraph. In my opinion, the way the author executed the switching the point of view between characters in this book did not have an organic flow.

There were a few questionable events in the book that were used to push the plot forward that had me raising eyebrows. One example: at the protagonists senior prom she was almost kidnapped. The two brothers somehow convince her to not call the cops. They also convince her to go back with them to their home. It's here she discovers that they're vampires. It doesn't matter how attractive a guy is, hot never trumps safety. This event was a major part of pushing the plot forward but it felt rushed. There were also a lot of things that happened in this book that were predictable because I had read similar elements from the plot in various YA books. I also felt that the characters lived more of a lifestyle suited for college aged students and not high schoolers.

All that being said, I did enjoy the guardian storyline and feel that if you enjoy paranormal books and romance, you will more than likely enjoy this book.

Wilder follows Celeste, a teenage girl on the verge of graduating and moving on to the next stage of her life, although it may not be what she had planned. Everything she thought she knew about her life is challenged when the Constantine brothers arrive in town and she is confronted with the truth behind her father’s death and what it means to be his daughter. These revelations submerge Celeste into a world she never knew existed. I really enjoyed G K DeRosa’s take on the supernatural world and how Celeste’s past and present is entwined with the world of vampires, sorcerers and guardians. This book is a great read and I highly recommend to anyone who is looking for a new twist on the vampire/supernatural genre.

I seem to continually buy books about teenagers and their new found supernatural abilities. Almost always it turns out sappy and predictable. I started this novel thinking I would get the same mediocre storyline. I was pleasantly surprised with the writing and the story development. It was still predictable but not saturated in teenage hormones and angst and it had some good action scenes.

I look forward to the next installment.

What a wonderful book for lovers of the supernatural! The author has created an atmosphere and culture in the Oak Bluffs town that instantly transports you there. Celeste is a relatable teen heroine that makes me excited to learn more about her world and adventures, I can’t wait for the next book. The perfect easy read: fun, mysterious, and romantic. The characters jump off the pages and into your imagination for a great fantasy escape! This is the perfect gift for any avid teen reader. Five stars!!

Purchased as a gift and the recipient enjoyed the pseudo-love triangle and the vampire story line. Great for young adult sci-fi fans as it has a twist on the heroine main character that is not typical. Purchased the paperback and thought it to be a good presentation and of very nice quality for the price

It was ok. Some of the conversations were a bit weird and forced and just not believable. I know as high schoolers we all parties and drank some. But um these kids drank all the time and all the adults even in the restaurant were ok with it. Just yea. That bothered me. So. It was an ok book. The plot was a great idea for sure. I just could seem to really get into it.

Blown away! I absolutely LOVED this book! Reading paranormal/supernatural is my cup of tea! Let me just say this book did NOT disappoint AT ALL! This just might be my new favorite YA Paranormal series. So, so good! If you loved the show/book series Vampire Diaries, Buffy The Vampire Slayer, or even True Blood, I highly recommend you pick this book up. Some elements in this book even reminded me of The Mortal Instruments a bit. All I can say is I highly suggest you read this one! I don't understand why there aren't many people reading this series. It needs and deserves more attention. I flew through this book and I want to go on Amazon right now and and buy the second book and start reading it immediately. I can think of nothing better than curling up with the second book in this series and a glass of red wine. What a perfect Friday night that would be! Unfortunately for me, I have other read/review commitments to other books tonight. :-(

If you are planning on reading anything this weekend and need a great escape into another world pick this book up. A great book to read after a stressful work week. Every page of this book is full of fun.

The fell in love with the characters in this book. They were hard not to love. Roman just might be my next book boyfriend. I think I'm in love with him. I don't get this way about fictional characters in books. He really did it for me though. Might be my obsession with Damon from The Vampire Diaries. Romann reminded me of him. Celeste is an awesome chic who loves to read romance novels, and is a hopeless romantic. I really loved her character. Her friend Brian is the kind of guy friend every girl dreams of having. Brian made me think of and long for my guy best friend. I loved Celeste's Mother as well.
