Wild Hearts (Wild Hearts, #1) by Vivian Wood
Laura's rating: 4.5 of 5 iScream Cones
When I finished reading the prequel to Wild Hearts, I was so excited to get started on this one. I had fallen in love with the author's writing style in the first book and in a few others, I had read by her. I have to say Wood's does not disappoint. I was sucked in from the first chapter and did not want to put it down. I read it relatively quick for as busy as my life has been this past month. It took me a day and a half to get through and I was taken on a roller coaster ride of emotions. There were times that I wanted to jump through my tablet and smack the shit out of Alex and other times that I wanted to just grab a hold of him and not let go.
Alex has closed himself off to nearly everyone. He has no desire to have a relationship with a woman and he likes to keep to himself for the most part. When Faith walks into his life he can't help but take a second look at her. But his brooding personality should make her realize that he wants nothing to do with the opposite sex. Little does Alex know, he is everything that Faith could ever want in a partner.
Faith, a successful lawyer at the young age of 26 has just been left property by an aunt she never knew. Needing a change from her fast-paced life she travels to Georgia to see just what her distant aunt has left her. Staying at a local BNB proves to be entertaining, to say the least. There are no shortage of men that Faith seems to have caught the eye of. Now as she begins to settle the estate of her aunt and make plans for the property, memories of her time there come flooding back. When secrets come to light, Faith has to decide how hard she wants to fight to keep the family property or if it is time to tuck tail and run, back to the life she left in California.
Both Alex and Faith are such strong characters. Faith is used to doing everything for herself. She is independent and head-strong. She has had her fair share of heartbreak and she has no intentions of letting Alex in. But the tension between the two of them continues to build and build. Can they prove to one another that they are trustworthy and that their feelings for the other are true? Or will threats that are being made and secrets from the past be more than they both can endure?
If you are looking for a great, page-turning read. Filled with love, lust, family, friendship, mystery and new beginnings, then Wild Hearts is the book for you.
