Sometimes doing the wrong thing feels so right…
I’m a player. I’m an asshole. I’m someone you should stay away from.
I have demons.
I’ve made mistakes.
And the biggest can’t be taken back.
I’ve gone to hell and back in twenty-nine years and I’m only now coming to terms with moving forward, righting my wrongs, and making amends. Except not everyone deserves forgiveness. Sometimes the damage done is beyond repair.
Everyday is exactly the same. I focus on the pain, in the quest to feel and forget, but I remember everything. When I close my eyes the darkness encroaches and some days it feels like the things that kill me are the things that make me feel alive.
This is the second story in the Wild series. It’s about Ridge. Ridge is a man that has drowned his sorrows over the loss of his parents with crime, drugs and whoring. The story is also a love triangle of sorts. See, Ridge’s love of his life is Mia. His brother’s ex-fiance, Mia. Not when he slept with her though. Mia and Wild were still a couple when it happened. Total dick move, pun intended. Ridge got himself clean with Mia’s help. He feels in order to reconcile with his brother, he needs to break up with Mia. So he does.
What I liked about the story:
The way it sucked you in.
His dirty mouth.
What I didn’t like was:
He’s a repeat cheater.
What he did to his brother.
What Mia did to his brother.
Ridge is weak.
Ridge is a user.
The way he treated Amy, who only wanted to love him.
The way he treated Mia.
His total lack of respect for the sanctity of marriage and relationships.
Despite, all of the above dislikes, I had to see how it all ended up. Will I go on in the series? No. Too much cheating for me. It’s not sex. Ever.
