Review: "Ridge" by Adriane Leigh

Title: Ridge (Wild #2)
Author: Adriane Leigh
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Release Date: March 3, 2014
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. *Ridge, like Wild, is a standalone. Reading Wild first will provide some back story, but is not required to read Ridge  


Ridge is a very dark book. It's about addictions and trying to overcome them. It's proof of how mistakes in life follow us to the grave. Ridge has been through hell ever since the death of his mother. She meant so much to him that he never found his way out of the despair. It was the beginning of the downward spiral and only Mia has ever calmed the storm.

If you've read Wild you'll know part of the story of what is causing most of Ridge's problems. I highly recommend reading Wild first. It gives more details as to why Ridge has so much guilt and problems. This is an excellent series if you like a sexy, tormenting read. Though this book is much more psychological than Wild.

I felt so bad for Ridge and Mia, they are both damaged. I wonder what caused Mia's problems though. My heart felt like it was ripped in two for Amy. There are so many good things I could say about this book, but they would all ruin the story for those who haven't read it. So, I'll just say get the book and read it! You won't regret it.

This is a 5 star book coming from a 5 star series.

Slade (Wild #3)
  Behind every beautiful thing, there is some kind of pain... Always overlooked. Always just there. That's what Dillon was to me. Until one night. In one night she flipped my world on its axis and there's no going back. But she has secrets, and secrets fester like an open wound. They color the past and forecast the future, but I'm determined to open her up; free her from her memories so she can live in the light and have the life she deserves. It's just too bad that she wants nothing to do with me. But I'm nothing if not persistent and I'm not a man that gives up without a fight. I've had a taste and there's no walking away. I just have to convince her that I'm not what she fears, I'm what she wants. Slade, like Wild and Ridge, is a standalone. Reading Wild and Ridge first will provide some back story, but is not required to read Slade. BTSPRprofile-1
