I finished Wilder at 2am this morning and as soon as I finished that last word I was equal parts regretting waiting so long and also ecstatic that my first read of 2017 was such a remarkable read!
I instantly fell for Paxton, from those first few pages I knew he was exactly what I needed to get me out of my book funk! Paxton was all the things I love in my male leads, sweet, sexy, a little bit arrogant... ok maybe a lot arrogant and a dare devil!
Wilder was my first Rebecca Yarros book and I instantly fell in love with the intricate and poetic way she writes. One of the things I loved about her style was how romantic, yet not flowery she wrote some of the more intimate scenes between Pax and Leah. I've never fallen so in love with a first kiss scene before. It was exhilarating and steamy. Kiss perfection!
I’d never wanted something—someone—so badly in my life. Damn the consequences. “Leah?” he asked, leaning down slightly to cup my cheeks in his hands, then swiping his tongue across his lower lip—his nervous tell. My fingers found the warm skin of his biceps, and before I could find the words I wanted to say, I surged on my toes, pressing my mouth to his and kissing him. Our lips clung, the simple pressure lasting far longer than I meant it to. I hadn’t meant for it to happen at all. Not really. Oh God. I kissed Paxton. I’m kissing Paxton.
And that's not even the whole scene! You have to experience Leah and Pax' story from the beginning to fully appreciate how perfect this scene was!
Wilder begins 2 years after Leah has been through a traumatic experience. From the brief insight you get within the first 2 chapters I thought she was dealing with PTSD and once you discover why she's so afraid of what she is you can completely understand her reactions to certain situations.
Leah was an incredible female lead in Wilder. I connected with her immediately, I felt her pain, her loss, her nerves, everything she felt I felt alongside her. She was so strong and far braver then she gave herself credit for but also damaged in a way that only true love could fix. I loved how hellbent she was on succeeding in life and getting through her pain to the other side and living to her full potential.
Paxton is Leah's opposite in every way, he's reckless where she's cautious. Goes with the flow where she plans everything but they balanced each other out so perfectly.
Where Pax pushes Leah to move on with her life and live a little, Leah gets Pax to slow down just slightly and enjoy the little things.
“Because if no one sees the epic moments, did they ever really happen?” Our eyes locked, and my breath became pure energy in my lungs, sending butterflies into my stomach while rushing a strange chill through my limbs. “I think it depends on who you define as no one. Not everything epic is meant for a worldwide audience.”
Pax is the leader of the Renegades, the 4 original dare devils. He's reckless and arrogant with hardly a fear in the world. Except the one thing that everyone is looking for. He's fiercely loyal to those around him and puts everyone's needs in front of his own. But Pax has an agenda, an agenda that could ruin everything for him if he doesn't play his cards right.
I was pleasantly surprised with how much I fell in love with Wilder and Rebecca's poetic style of writing. She was so descriptive when describing scenes that I could picture everything perfectly like I was watching a movie that captured every aspect of her words.
I've been in somewhat of a reading slump the past few months and have really struggled to get into anything I've picked up. I haven't connected so well with every character in a book in so long! And gah! Those secondary characters! All I want from life is too be Penna's best friend and I hope like hell that we've got a story about her coming! I'm already counting down the minutes to Nova, Book 2 in the Renegades series!
“Tell her. Kiss her. Pray to God you can make it through the storm you’re headed for, then marry her and make pretty little Wilder babies,” she repeated. “The answer to that question will always be the same no matter what stage you’re in. You are the strongest man I have ever known. So you dig in, you take the rain, and you fight like hell, because that’s what you’re about to go through.”
With one book Rebecca has made me a lifelong fan and become an instant one click author! I've already 1 clicked everything she's written that I didn't already have and preordered Nova! I'm so thoroughly excited to see what she does with Landon AKA Casanova!
