Dark Wild Night (Wild Seasons) by Christina Lauren


What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
But what didn't happen in Vegas seems to follow them everywhere.

Lola and Oliver like to congratulate themselves on having the good sense to not consummate their drunken Las Vegas wedding. If they’d doubled-down on that mistake, their Just Friends situation might not be half as great as it is now.

... Or so goes the official line.

In reality, Lola’s wanted Oliver since day one—and over time has only fallen harder for his sexy Aussie accent and easygoing ability to take her as she comes. More at home in her studio than in baring herself to people, Lola’s instinctive comfort around Oliver nearly seems too good to be true. So why ruin a good thing?

Even as geek girls fawn over him, Oliver can’t get his mind off what he didn’t do with Lola when he had the chance. He knows what he wants with her now ... and it’s far outside the friend zone. When Lola’s graphic novel starts getting national acclaim—and is then fast-tracked for a major motion picture—Oliver steps up to be there for her whenever she needs him. After all, she’s not the kind of girl who likes all that attention, but maybe she’s the kind who’ll eventually like him.

Sometimes seeing what’s right in front of us takes a great leap of faith. And sometimes a dark wild night in Vegas isn’t just the end of a day, but the beginning of a bright new life...


 Lola and Oliver are a dynamic duo ~ much like their creators. Lola is a very interesting heroine. She’s introverted, talented and her life is changing at warp speed. I loved her predicament ~ Her former husband being her current crush and close friend.  We should all have such problems. Lola’s storyline was fresh and interesting.

Oliver has it going on … big time. I melted on the spot every time he said “Lola Love” I longed to be named Lola. He loved her hard and that made me wish and want for them both. His humor made the harder more honest moments manageable. He had me in stitches with lines like ~ “you put out the honey you’re going to get some bees.” Both Lola and I knew he wasn’t wrong. Oliver really is sweet as honey.

Creativity needs to breathe and Dark Wild Night is a witty breath of fresh air. Pure bliss that should not be missed.
