A good girl goes fabulously bad in the final book in New York Times bestselling author Sophie Jordan’s sexy New Adult romance series, in which three Ivy League suite-mates seek higher knowledge of just how far they can go.
Months after her boyfriend dumped her, Georgia can still hear the insults he hurled at her. Boring. Predictable. Tame. Tired of feeling bad, she’s ready to change her image, and go a little wild. What better way to prove her ex wrong than a hot night of sexual adventure at the secret campus kink club?
In the shadowy den of the kink club, she unexpectedly runs into Logan Mulvaney, her friend’s little brother. A player extraordinaire too hot for his own good, he may be younger, but the guy is light years ahead when it comes to sexual experience. Now he’s telling her to go home—“good girls” don’t belong here!
Georgia is tired of having others define her. She’s going to teach Logan a lesson he won’t forget—one white hot, mind-wrecking kiss . . . that leads to another . . . and another . . . and. . . . Realizing she’s way in over her head, Georgia runs.
Only Logan won’t let her go. Everywhere she goes he’s there, making her want every inch of him. Making her forget who she is. Who he is. And just how wrong they are for each other (goodreads).

I had my doubts, but this final book blew me away

Plot: When I first learned that Wild was going to center around Georgia and Logan, I turned my nose up in disgust. "Ewww Reece's little brother? He's still in high school." Luckily, Sophie Jordan addressed the thought that we were all thinking, dispelled any "grossness" we may have felt towards the coupling, and created a memorable love story. 

Characters: Unlike Emerson in Tease, Georgia stays true to her character portrayal. She's the girl who plays it safe, and when she is dumped by a long term boyfriend she does the only thing that she can think of, she does something completely unsafe. The romance between Logan and Georgia is  hot and heavy, but it revolves societal expectations which makes their love story very precarious. As this is the last of a trilogy, Sophie makes sure to give us updates on the couples from the previous novels, and I'm not 100 percent sure I liked them in the fringes. I wanted to focus on the constant battle between Georgia and Logan, not see how happy everyone else is. 

Wold Building: My biggest complaint about the lack of college life these Ivy girls had. Even though Wild takes place during summer vacation, I felt like I explored more of Dartmouth than I did in previous installments, and that was because academics played a large role in Georgia's life. But of course, Mulvaney's was the setting of choice. 

Short N Sweet: Wild was a great final installment filled with sexual tension and emotion. It focused on doing what is expected and what is desired, and is easily my favorite book of the series.
