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

I want a Wild man!

I quickly fell in love with this story and ALL of the characters! I instantly decided that I need a Wild man in my life!!! The story and characters are well written. It has the perfect amount of fun/happy times with just the right amount of drama mixed it. I cannot wait to read about the other Wild men!

The narration was great! Both Lacy and Jeremy did a great job bringing voice to the characters!

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.

This book was simply juvenile. Even worse the voices were whinny and over the top. The whole thing was just Bad.

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.

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.

Second chances

This story has two characters with great chemistry and each has their own emotional backstory. This is a good read and it makes me want a wild man too. Good start to the series.

This was the perfect second chance romance.

I love second chance romances, and this one was just as sweet as it was sexy. Skylar's chance meeting with Colton on the beach after not seeing each other since they were just teenagers is a fluke neither of them could have counted on. She has been running from a past that could mean so many horrifying things while he has been searching for her since that night in Colorado when they were just teenagers, neither of them experienced and neither of them prepared.

While she fights her attraction to him because of the past that has taught her to be wary of men and what might really be happening under the surface, he fights to get through all of the pain she has endured to show her that he has never forgotten her, that the feelings he has held for her all of these years have not only stayed with him but multiplied at seeing her again. Will he be able to get through to her before fear makes her decide to leave the life she's made for herself and ghost him again?

I loved reading this story more than listening to it. There is an abundance of background romance and heartfelt moments that the heat the author brings to her stories is just an extra bonus. There's a psychological issue that holds the characters apart, always a fear of something that could very well make them take another turn. And her background characters mean so much to the story and beg to be written.

That being said, there were some nuances missed in the narrators' interpretations. The male narration wasn't too bad, but the female read it with incorrect breaths, breaks and emphasis. She mispronounced words that a narrator shouldn't have trouble with. I actually went back to my Kindle copy of the book to make sure the words were spelled correctly, and they were. I don't know if she simply wasn't prepared for the reading or if she just wasn't meant to read this story. I just found it disappointing.

Sucky female narrator

The female narrator was horrible. She sounds like a news reporter telling a story on a local news channel. I couldn’t take her seriously to the point that I couldn’t finish the 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!

Thank you 🎧AudiobookObsession

Hi Again Mr. Wilde

I enjoyed this story. One of the narrators was new to me. I had to learn their style. I enjoyed how protective Colton was of Skye.I thought it was great how the author talked about mental health. Made it known that it is ok to ask for help. This was a great second chance at love story. I can't wait to continue this series.

So boring!

I got so bored and distracted listening to this, and I found the narrator Lacy Laurel annoying too, especially when she does male voices. Insta-love, no building chemistry, not feeling any emotional connection to the characters, and frustrating skittish Daddy issues mean I’ll be returning this book.

Awesome second chance romance

Great second chance romance. Sky and Colton reconnect after 10 years. He lost her once and is determined to not let her get away from him again. This was a sweet emotional read. Well written story and characters. I found myself rooting for Sky and Colton to make it to their happily ever after. New author for me and I look forward to checking out the rest of the Wild Men. I hope that their stories have the same magic as this one.I

The narrators scored a touchdown with this one. They drew me in and held me captive throughout the whole story with how they brought these characters to life. I felt all the emotions. Great story and narration.

Colton

This book has so many emotions in it! I love the idea of finding one another after 10 years being apart and still feeling all those feelings and passion towards each other. Colton is so understanding and willing to go slow to make Sky comfortable in her own skin and willing to show her emotions as well. These two are so sweet together and I hope to see more of them in this series. The epilogue was fantastic as well. Narration in this book was spot on!

Loved it. the narration was awesome

I so enjoyed this book. It's rare that I can actually listen to an entire book in one sitting. Life always gets in the way. Not in this instance. I actually declined calls, etc. to just continue with the book. I thoroughly enjoy stories like Colton's and Sky's. "the one that got away" stories. The author did a good job bringing this story with enough of a freshness to it that it didn't feel like you knew everything that was going to happen. The narrators did it for me. I love Jeremy York and Lacy Laurel and am looking forward to more from them. Great book.

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.
