3.5 Heart Review by Ashley
I wasn't quite sure what to expect going into my first book from Kenzie Macallan but Wild is the perfect title for this ride.
I could feel the tension and anxiety radiating off of Sean as he tried to get answers. But it was the complete shock when he came face to face with Jess after years apart that warmed me to him. Jess being there changed the game for him, raised the stakes on the seemingly simple mission.
The more time Jess and Sean spend together trying to get answers, the deeper the situation they were in became. Knowing they could only trust and rely on each other brought them closer and helped them put some past pain to rest.
A rescue, a reconciliation, revelations and romance. Between all the danger and unknown, Jess and Sean's second-chance romance was tender and full of promise. And the way the other characters were introduced was a solid set up for what is to come in the series.
