Publisher's Summary

Colton Wild isn’t just the famous football player everyone sees on their television screen. I met Colton one summer vacation when we lined up on opposite sides of a flag football field. He was the cocky kid with clear blue eyes and a constant smirk. When he picked me up over his shoulder and ran with me the length of the field, I wanted to hate him.   

But somehow we were the last two left around the campfire that night. We talked for hours under the stars. And when he kissed me, I didn’t want him to stop. The next morning, I left.   

I thought I’d never see him again.  

And for ten years, I didn’t.  

Sky Rosewood was the one that got away, the fiery redhead with a temper to match.   

It felt like way more than a teenage crush, but what did I know back then? Plus she gave me a fake phone number, not to mention a false last name. I tried everything to find her, but it was like she’d disappeared into the ether.  

Ten years later, I’m out for my morning beach run and I crash into…Sky Rosewood, just before she gets knocked out by an errant wave. I try to be a gentleman and give her mouth to mouth, but she comes to and tells me off, her temper still intact. And so is my crush.  

Except now Sky’s a woman. A beautiful woman who agrees to give me the right number this time.   

I’ve got my second chance with the woman I never forgot, and there’s no way I’m letting her get away again. Turns out I shouldn’t have been so cocky...

Great story line

This book was great. Long lost lovers story who reunite and find their happily every after. However, I could barely finish it because of the female narrator. Her voice just gave me. constant headache. It was whining, Nasaly yet whisperery and so low. I just looked forward to the male narrator to come on. unfortunately for me, she had more parts than he did. Hopefully the next book in the series would use a different female if not I don't think I'll be patronizing and more books in the series. Very good story and I look forward to Dylan's story

Cute story

I really enjoyed this second chance romance. We all have a part with demons that try to ruin the present and future. Colton is the left man for Sky as she struggles with her past fears.

One thing that really bothered me was during the intimate scenes Colton's voice got very nasally and killed the mood dropping the story for me. I struggled to get back into the story during those times.

Such an Emotional Story

Colton & Sky met 10 years ago while they were in high school & on vacation with their families. Fast forward 10 years & they bump into each other again. Sky wants to run from Colton but he won't let her. What they felt 10 years ago had to mean something to both of them. Colton wants to give things a try but Sky has a wall up & won't let him in. She is afraid to deal with her past that not too many people know about. Colton gives her time & wants her to trust him. Sky knows that she needs to give Colton a chance but is afraid to. I loved how Colton was there for Sky no matter what. They both come to realize that they have had a lot to deal with in the past & it shapes them to who they are today. It was also fun seeing Colton's family & friends with him & towards Sky. This was a very emotional story that you could feel your heartstrings pull for both of them. I loved the narration for it also.

Cute second chance romance

This was a nice second chance romance between two people who first met 10 years ago. It was a really quick and light listen, even though some of the story cause me to roll my eyes (a little too much of instant love in the story). The narrators did a great job, it was my first time listening to Lacy Laurel but she was good. Jeremy York was great as always!

This author is writing is neurotic.

This sucks storyline read like a 12-year dream romance and 12-year-olds drama. The sociological issues of the female main character is to much for me . The Male lead character is clearly written by female because no man would ever talk or act like that.

I rolled my eyes at dialogue the whole book.

Great book to listen to.

An emotional read surrounding finding love and letting go of the baggage from our past. Colton and Sky met years ago at camp and reunite years later. Both had issues that kept them apart but it is the journey they take together built with understanding and making new memories that takes their relationship to the next level. With adorable characters and a storyline that had me hooked from the beginning this was a great story. The narrators were spot on and truly enjoyable.

Loved it!!

I loved this book! The writing was great- I loved the story line of re encountering a childhood sweetheart. It was sweet, it was sexy and yet still had it's share of drama. The characters were great- i can already tell i will fall for each and every Wild Man :)

The narration was great. Lacy really shined in this. Jeremy York was fabulous as well. I felt they went together really well in this.

I can't wait to read about more of the the Wild Men.

Colt and Sky!

Colton is a successful football player who should be on top of the world but has always felt something was missing. While running on the beach one morning he happens to rescue a journalist. When he realizes it is Skylar, the girl he knew for one night ten years ago and hasn’t forgotten not only’ does he help her get the interview he also knows that she is what he didn’t realize he was looking for.

Sky’s past has made her leery of love and the only ones she allows close are her mother and her brothers. When she reconnects with Colt he makes her feel things she hasn’t felt since she saw him last but will he be able to break down the walls that she uses to protect herself?

Colt is so patient with Sky as he shows her with the little things he does that he can be trusted. This is a heartwarming emotional story about two people who originally met at the worst time in their lives who finally have a second chance,

I thought the narrators did a great job of bringing this story to life. I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Got to Love a Wild Man!

Melissa Belle writes a beautiful love story of two people who had met 10 years earlier when but have not seen each other since. Great character development here, both leads have interesting past stories and issues to deal with, especially Skylar. All the making for intense & emotional storylines. Colton was patient and understanding which was a nice touch and added more sweetness to the story. Great start to a series, it was nice to meet the other Wild Men, looking forward to reading more about them! Thank you Melissa Belle for the great read.

The narrators, Jeremy York & Lacy Laurel are awesome! They perform well together and bring the characters & the story to life from the pages to your ears. Both are gifted storytellers with natural talent. Thank you for the great listen!

Good love story

A story of loyalty, love and taking a second chance when it is presented. Sky and Colton are a sweet pairing and I enjoyed the slow regrowth of their young love. The narrators, both caprured the essence of their characters and drew me into the book and has left me with a smile on my face.

Enjoyed the Wild Men!

Sky never thought she would see him again...She never thought she’d see him again…this is a second chance romance and first book in the Wild Men Series.

Sky

Colton Wild isn’t just the famous football player everyone sees on their television screen.

I met Colton one summer vacation when we lined up on opposite sides of a flag football field. He was the cocky kid with clear blue eyes and a constant smirk. When he picked me up over his shoulder and ran with me the length of the field, I wanted to hate him.

But somehow we were the last two left around the campfire that night. We talked for hours under the stars. And when he kissed me, I didn’t want him to stop.

The next morning, I left.

I thought I’d never see him again.

And for ten years, I didn’t.

Colton

Sky Rosewood was the one that got away, the fiery redhead with a temper to match.

It felt like way more than a teenage crush, but what did I know back then? Plus she gave me a fake phone number, not to mention a false last name. I tried everything to find her, but it was like she’d disappeared into the ethers.

Ten years later, I’m out for my morning beach run and I crash into…Sky Rosewood, just before she gets knocked out by an errant wave. I try to be a gentleman and give her mouth to mouth, but she comes to and tells me off, her temper still intact. And so is my crush.

I’ve got my second chance with the woman I never forgot, and there’s no way I’m letting her get away again.

Turns out I shouldn’t have been so cocky…

I really enjoyed this book! This is a second chance romance book! The author did a great job in developing the characters and introducing the characters for other books in this series. I can't wait for the next book in this series! I recommend this book to anyone who loves a good book and a great HEA. The book is narrated by Jeremy York and Lacy Laurel. They did a great job of bring the book and it's characters to life!

Hot sports romance

I was really intrigued by the premise of this story, but felt slightly let down by the follow through.
Colton and Skylar are now grown ups meeting again. Colton is a big football star and Skylar is making her name as a journalist. A chance meeting and what started as a high school crush ten years ago only seems like a stronger connection after the time apart.
Colton and Sky have each been through a lot in the past and on paper seem to have grown successful and moved on with their lives. But they talk and act like they are still young high schoolers and the drama and angst feels very young also.
I listened to the audiobook and the narration was very good. The narrators are what kept me interested and listening til the end.

Wonderful healing story

I love sports romances and I really enjoyed this hurt/comfort story. It's about healing beyond your past and moving forward and taking new chances. Sky is a go getter but her can do attitude also serves as a front for a lot of pain and heartache from her childhood. She is understandably a very skittish about relationships and has a pretty strong fear of love but her undeniable attraction to Colton has her stepping out of her comfort zone for him.

I adore when a character steps outside of their societal norms and expitations. Colton isnt your typical ladies man/player, football star (not that there’s anything wrong with those guys, we love them too), but instead he is the perfect balance of patiece and understanding. Colton was the ultimate counterpart to Sky’s flighty nerves and is the perfect steady companion for her. I was in awe of his perserverence, ability to see what she always needed, and be that for her.

The whole book flowed really nicely and while in another story Sky’s hot and cold tendencies might have been frustrating the author did a really great job up setting them up so they made completely sense and were understandable for her as a character.

I also really liked how in setting up for more books in the series she expanded Wilde men beyond brothers like most series tend to stick with and included cousins and other family members. I can’t wait to see more of these guys!

The narration was great! Jeremy York and Lacy Laurel gave a wonderful performance that brought Sky and Colton to life.

Wild audio

This is by book 1 in the series and my first from the author .
I love my sports romance, this audio had some dips and turns and it was suspenseful.

Colton is a football player that had a inta love with Skylar. They had a night together, it was everything Colton was expecting . Colton was expecting more but when Skylar leaves she gives Colton a wrong contact number .
Colton tries to forget her but it’s hard .
Skylar and Colton meet again 10 yrs later on a beach, in an unusual way , but a fun way .
Skylar had issues with her family, mostly her dad when she was younger . She had no choice but to do what she did .
Grab it and se does she mention it to Colton. Do they connect now

The narrating team of Lacy and Jeremy were fantastic. Love how both brought the story to life . They were smooth , clear and strong

engrossing story

this was a brilliant story. Skylar having had a terrible early life has more than a few issues but when she met the boy from her childhood Sparks fly.
the chemistry between these to is amazing and Colts dedication to doing everything he can to make sure he gets what he wants is great.
An all round wonderful story.
