Wild Child: A Novel

Wild Child: A Novel by Molly O'Keefe

Pre-Order for $7.99 Amazon

Available October 29th

Monica Appleby is a woman with a reputation. Once she was America’s teenage “Wild Child,” with her own reality TV show. Now she’s a successful author coming home to Bishop, Arkansas, to pen the juicy follow-up to her tell-all autobiography. Problem is, the hottest man in town wants her gone. Mayor Jackson Davies is trying to convince a cookie giant to move its headquarters to his crumbling community, and Monica’s presence is just too . . . unwholesome for business. But the desire in his eyes sends a very different message: Stay, at least for a while.

Jackson needs this cookie deal to go through. His town is dying and this may be its last shot. Monica is a distraction proving too sweet, too inviting—and completely beyond his control. With every kiss he can taste her loneliness, her regrets, and her longing. Soon their uncontrollable attraction is causing all kinds of drama. But when two lost hearts take a surprise detour onto the bumpy road of unexpected love, it can only lead someplace wonderful.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Ok, thumbs up on the cover, it's hot. One thumb up on the plot, but one thumb down. Dean and Shelby aren't main characters but sure do take up a lot of space. I could have done with less from them. The "inner dialogue" with Jackson and Monica got to be too much. Pages and pages of it to be exact. If this book were trimmed down, it would be amazing. I love the premise of the story. Struggling town, child actress, lots of issues between the both of them. It was great. It just definitely needs some work. There's so much that just bored me, I found myself skipping past it. (Mainly the inner thoughts of the characters that are continuously repeated) I guess this is one of the books you need to decide on for yourself, but I felt it really needed to be trimmed down.
