Wild (The Ivy Chronicles #3) by Sophie Jordan

* * * *

Available November 18, 2014
A good girl goes fabulously bad in the final book in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s sexy New Adult romance series, in which three Ivy League suite-mates seek higher knowledge of just how far they can go.

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 sexual adventure at the secret campus kink club?

In the shadowy den of the kink 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 sexual experience. Now he’s telling her to go home—“good girls” don’t belong here!

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 way in 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.

Oh boy! That Sophie Jordan is a sneaky one. She saved the best, or rather the kinkiest for last. Foreplay hinted at the infamous kink club, Tease gave us a glimpse and now Wild invites us inside.

At the end of Tease, we found out that Georgia and her longtime boyfriend broke up.  Georgia’s seemingly happy and solid relationship was one that her roommates Pepper and Emerson wanted to emulate. Her break-up came as a surprise to her, devastating her.One night she gets fed up of feeling so pathetic and decides to accept an invitation to head over to the kink club to see what it’s all about.  This is more like a dare to herself. She’s tired of being the predictable good girl and she’s looking to shake things up. When she gets there, she realizes she’s in over her head.  She runs in to Logan (believe me, this scene is kind of hot!) who can instantly tell that she is way out of her comfort zone there and promptly escorts her from the premises. Even in Georgia’s very confused state, there’s no denying that there’s some chemistry between them. And as much as she’d like to forget about the fact that she’s lusting after her roommate’s boyfriend’s younger brother, who also happens to be younger than her, Logan won’t let her off that easily. He actively pursues her and every moment they are together, whether it’s a run in or at an actual social gathering, their moments are charged.

Each book in the series has gotten more daring in terms of sexual tension which is rather thrilling. But there’s more to it with Wild. Georgia’s break up and the relentless demands from her mother begin to grate on her. Away from her ex, she’s finally starting to see herself more clearly. She has spent so much of her life living up to everyone else’s expectations that she hasn’t given her own needs a second thought. Wild becomes about Georgia's self-discovery from under the rubble of a failed one-sided relationship and the shift in her relationship with her overbearing mother. It just so happens that there's a new love interest as well. Logan pushes her buttons, bringing excitement to her very calm, scandal-free life. The excitement is a lure but she’s still afraid to take that crucial leap in admitting what she really wants for herself.

As with the other books, it’s nice that all the previous players make appearances. What’s also nice is that Sophie Jordan has consistently allowed her heroines to grow and explore life beyond what they’re used to.  It’s great to see female characters overcome their own fears and not be ashamed to ask for what they want, do what they want and in the end, understand that they deserve happiness.  

So fellow readers, read Wild. If you haven’t tried the series yet, what are you waiting for? Romance, emotional growth and let’s not leave out fantastic sexual tension with really hot guys -- The Ivy Chronicles is one of the best New Adult series out there!
