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

"Hey.” She grabbed my chin and turned my eyes to hers. "I realized something about you long ago, Ridge Wild.”
"Oh yeah?” I tipped my head and smiled at her.
"Other than you have a smile that melts panties.” She smacked my cheek playfully.
"Other than that.”
"We don’t have to fix each other. We don’t need to. You’re not perfect, and I’m not perfect, but we’re perfect together. It was never about fixing you; it was always about loving you.” She dusted a kiss along the corner of my mouth.
My eyes danced around her dark features, soaking her up, before I pulled her in tighter to my body and planted a kiss on her lips.
I realized finding her, fighting for her, was about forgiveness, some twisted sense of retribution, coming to terms with our pasts and learning that they don’t define us, but only serve to shape us, make us who we are, make us better people.
As I looked at her, I realized I had two options. I could go back in the direction I’d come from, or I could go forward in the direction I wanted to go.
I was shit without her, but fortunately, when I was with her, she was my other half. My matching piece. My mirror image. My perfect opposite.
When I met her, I'd found me.

I love this series! Leigh does a great job writing a story you feel to you bones. Ridge's story is so deep and full of emotion that you are hooked from the start. There is so much pain and hurt in both Ridge and Mia's lives that they are very moving characters. I love and hate Ridge. With all that he does, he tries to make the right choice but only hurts himself and others. Poor Amy was just one more huge mistake for Ridge. I loved her character but from the start her and Ridge were wrong on so many levels. I hate how their relationship went but it was necessary for this book and for Ridge to find himself. So much emotion in this story it left me with a major hangover! It is a wonderful book, not quite as good a Wild but still an amazing read. Pick up this emotional roller coaster of a book and you won't regret it. I can't wait for Slade to come out and I loved Wild as well. This is a series you must read. Emotional through and through in both books so far and I can't wait to see what is in store for Slade.


Coming Soon
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
