Review: Wilder (The Renegades) by Rebecca Yarros

Okay, I'm back. So first on the list. The book that makes you swoon and throws you over the moon. Rebecca Yarros' latest book: Wilder!! *hits round of applause button*

  • Publisher: Entangled: Embrace (September 19, 2016)
  • Publication Date: September 19, 2016

I'm Paxton Wilder--
Motocross phenom with more tattoos than scars.
I've never seen a stunt I couldn't pull off--
Or a girl I can't get off.
Until she walks in.

My new tutor is sexy, smart, more stubborn than I am, and one hundred percent off limits.
That's right--the only rule this semester is Don't Touch the Tutor.
For the first time in my life, I want someone I can't have.
She's the girl who obeys every rule.
I'm the guy who breaks them.
Our biggest risk is falling for each other,
But I live for risk..

My Review:

*I received an advance readers copy for my honest review and this has not affected my perceptions in any way*

I went into this book with high expectations after reading the bits and pieces that Rebecca teased/almost killed us with. And let me tell you, I wasn't disappointed. Like with all of Rebecca's works, there's a deliciously wonderful alpha male who steams up the pages and blows our minds with his mere presence and flirty/dirty words. His name here is Paxton Wilder. But like in all Rebecca's works, there's so much more. We get the priviledge of reading about these beautiful loves and the work it takes to fight for it and keep it alive. I won't go into detail about that fight that happens in Wilder because you need to dive into it for yourself but I will tell you a little about the characters and how I felt about the writing.

Paxton Wilder is a twenty-two-year-old, five-time X Games medalist and the world's heart throb/daredevil. He's all about the stunts and the rush. To go faster, higher, whatever it takes to push himself to the limits and beyond. But for him to continue doing all this he needs help from his new tutor, Eleanor "Leah" Baxter.

Leah is offered a chance to do the Semester at sea program in exchange for tutoring a student and she jumps at the chance as it'll help her for grad school. She's the school work driven, play it safe kind of girl. You think that the two wouldn't go together well, right? Wrong.

From the start the chemistry between the two jumps of the page, from the sexual tension to the intimate cutesy moments. As you read this book, you begin to see a different side to both characters and you are able to delve into their minds and understand their pasts and how it shaped them to who they are.

The writing was so descriptive and painted not only the characters but the setting in vivid detail. Because of this, I was feel like I was there and I have now made Mykonos a definite must see on my travel plans.

I think Rebecca did an excellent job on these characters and their story and I can't wait to read the rest of this series.
