Review: WILD by Adrienne Wilder

Genre: M/M, Romance

Synopsis from Goodreads:

August Vallory had it all. A modeling career, a man he loved, and the extended family he’d acquired in the business. Then the world he knew was torn away when the plane he was on crashed en route to a photo shoot.

Lost in the Alaskan wilderness, August doesn’t stand a chance.

No sane man would choose to live in the Alaskan bush unless he had something to hide. And Keegan Brooks has secrets darker than night, more dangerous than wolves, more brutal than an Alaskan winter.

Every day was a fight for his life until he stumbled upon a downed plane with a lone survivor. Now it’s no longer just Keegan’s life teetering on the edge of survival.

It’s his heart.


I ended up having mixed feelings about Wild. It started off really intense, but things went sideways for me after that. I guess I just expected more to happen during the story. It took me a bit of time to get through the book because it slowed down in the middle. Also, the setting didn't change, so I got a little bored.

August and Keegan were likable, yet a little bland, and I never really connected with either one. I did admire their strength, tenacity, and resourcefulness though. I know I certainly wouldn't want to test my own survival skills the way they did!

What bothered me the most about August and Keegan's relationship was it seemed that their feelings for each other only developed due to proximity and necessity. They literally couldn't live without the other. So it didn't feel like 'love' to me.

I wasn't satisfied with how the book ended. It was just too nice and neat after so much devastation and near death experiences. And that was a lame ass epilogue after such an intense book. So, overall, I liked this book well enough. I just didn't love it.


My Rating: 3 out of 5 Stars
