Rich, beautiful, and wild, Reagan McKinley has everything she needs...but nothing that she wants. That is, until she spends one hot night in the arms of sexy, unbridled Dare Wilde.
She's a girl trapped in a rigid world she desperately wants to escape, and he's an untamed artist with an attitude, hell-bent on freeing her—body, mind, and soul. But Reagan's life is not her own, and Dare is not welcome in it. She can't include him in her carefully-controlled, extremely public lifestyle...and yet she cannot give him up.
Will a shared passion for art—and, increasingly, each other—be enough to keep them together? Or will it be the thing that ultimately tears them apart?
It's hot. It's sexy.
Untamed is one of the best novellas I have ever read. I seriously could not put this story down. It literally starts off with a sexy bang and the drama and hotness continues all the way through. You get all the best of everything...romance, tension, family drama, art, friendship, and complete hotness in Untamed. Couldn't have loved it more. Definitely an untamed emotion of all the feels!
At first I was a little worried with Reagan, thinking why is this gorgeous model-esque girl getting into all the wrong things? As the story plays though, I began to realize and understand why Reagan is the way she is. Yet at the same time, being the black sheep isn't the easiest thing to do and when you're put being a rock and hard place like Reagan is...it's definitely not rainbows and butterflies. This may sound horrible, but I kind of loved watching her fall apart, it made her so much more real in my eyes. Yet, at the same time I loved watching Dare open her eyes. Cannot wait to get more of her!
On Dare's side, it was nice for a change to see the main fella have problems, too. Instead of him swooping in and being the knight in shining armor (which he actually is), Dare has just as many problems. Dare is the sexy but soft type right away. He instantly grabs your attention and then keeps you forever with how many layers you find underneath all of that hotness. Plus, I adore the fact that he is an artist! So flipping perfect! He is the perfect older brother, son, boyfriendish.... La la la stopping now! Just love Dare and want much more!
Overall, this novella just blew me out of the water. Not only is the book sexy perfection and filled with drama, but the concept of the series overall is just so intriguing and awesome. I have to say though, the ending is a heartbreaker and I wanted to kick Reagan in the shins. That being said... I still have six more novellas so I'm hoping for a happily ever after! Cannot wait to dive into the rest of this mind-blowing novella world!
Ps. Archer is mine. Just incase you were all wondering... :) --- Dash will be, too.
