When three college besties meet three hot guys in Vegas, anything can—and does—happen. Book Four in the New York Times Wild Seasons series that began with Sweet Filthy Boy (the Romantic Times book of the year that Sylvia Day called “a sexy, sweet treasure of a story”), Dirty Rowdy Thing, and Dark Wild Night.

For two people ambivalent about dating and love, they sure get naked around each other an awful lot . . .

London Hughes is very content to surf daily, tend bar, hang out with her group of friends, and slowly orient herself in the years after college. Everything’s going great and according to the non-plan.

But when a wave knocks her for a loop one morning, then Luke Sutter’s flirtatious smile knocks her for another that evening, she veers slightly off course…and into his path. Sure, he’s a total player, but the Why not—it’s only one night is a persistent voice in her ear.

For his part, Luke’s been on hookup autopilot for so long that he rarely ever pauses to consider what he’s doing. But after an amazing time with London, he realizes that he hasn’t been moving on from a devastating heartbreak so much as he’s been drifting to wherever—and whomever—the current takes him. With London he wants more.

Every relationship involves two people…plus their pasts. And as much as she enjoys her fling with Luke, when London learns about his past—more specifically, who’s in it—everything becomes the brand of complicated she strives to avoid. It’s up to Luke then to change some things in order to try and ensure he’s not something she’ll outright avoid as well.

I loved, loved, loved Luke and London’s story!

London is happy with her life.  Even though she went to school for Graphic design, she’s content spending her days surfing and bartending at night, until the day she meets Luke Sutter.  Luke is the ultimate player.  His phone can attest to the fact; it’s constantly barraged with messages from random girls.  What was supposed to be a casual, one night stand, with no complications, turns out to be the complete opposite.  Will it last though with both their complicated histories? Or will they learn to trust one another and navigate their way to a new beginning?

First of all, I love this series.  I’m embarrassed that I haven’t reviewed it on the blog previously.  I needed to rectify that situation, so here we are!   London and Luke are such a great addition to this colorful group of people we meet in the earlier books.  They were not highly featured in the previous storylines and it was refreshing to come at them as new characters.  Don’t worry though, we still see all our old favorites popping up!  London’s fear of commitment and her trust issues are well founded, but sometimes you just wanted to yell at her like,

“Girl! Just trust him!!”

Other than that, I had no issues.  Luke was a lot more complex.  We knew more about him because of Mia’s previous story, but this is the first time we see his side of it.  I loved seeing him struggle with his identity and taking the steps toward improving it and being the right person for London.  You were really rooting for him.

The plot moved very well and kept you invested in these characters.  The ending couldn’t have been more perfect and my only disappointment was that it ended!  If you haven’t read the rest of the series, I would highly recommend doing so before reading this one.  It’s not NEEDED, but you’ll get so much more out of it if you do!
