Christina Lauren books are absolutely delightful. I fall in love with each and every story and all the characters I meet along the way. Dark Wild Nights did not disappoint. Lola and Oliver's love story swept me away, comic book loving nerds and all. Christina Lauren has this amazing ability to somehow let me see glimpses of myself in each of their characters which is why my heart always clenches for their struggle, their fears, their hopes and their reasons for loving each other.

Sexy comic store owner Oliver and sweet, smart comic writer Lola are the best of friends. Their attraction to each other goes unspoken until one sunny morning when Lola finds herself sketching a nearly naked Oliver. This scene is when I fell for Oliver and his ability to rescue Lola in the most subtle of ways. Oliver is strong and steady and such a good guy. Lola is funny and genuine. I related to the way she struggled with balancing her need for things to happen at the right time and accepting that there isn't always a perfect time. I also identified with Lola falling in love and being so completely consumed that everything else in her life was pushed aside. It's a work of fiction but some of the struggles are very realistic.

Shayna Thibodeaux does an amazing job with Christina Lauren characters. I seriously just LOVE her because she narrates it just how I would if I was reading. Shayna is perfect! I also enjoyed Steve West as Oliver. I did find it a tad distracting from the story when he read the lines of any dialogue from the ladies. When men narrate women's lines I wish they would just do it in their normal voices. They always sounds silly and come across as small little girls instead of the strong characters Christina Lauren has created. Overall I thought Steve came across as a realistic Oliver.

I am sad that it had to end and I can't wait for book four!

One-night stands are supposed to be with someone convenient, or wickedly persuasive, or regrettable. They aren’t supposed to be with someone like him. But after a crazy Vegas weekend celebrating her college graduation - and terrified of the future path she knows is a cop-out - Mia Holland makes the wildest decision of her life: follow Ansel Guillaume - her sweet, filthy fling - to France for the summer and just…play.
