Exploring the world shouldn't come at a cost but Evie is about to discover heading out into the big world is far more dangerous than she ever thought.
Evie has been kept inside her house by her mother and only venturing out when it's necessary. Mistakes from her past means her mother is overprotective, but now Evie wants to go out and explore the world around her. Finding the courage, Evie leaves her home and goes on a journey, however, once she catches a trucker's eye, her world is turned upside down.
I would like to warn readers that if you're easily offended and like soft romance, then this book is not for you. This is a dark erotic romance and the story takes on the harder edge of finding romance within a bad situation.
This is a hard story to review because I do not wish to spoil it for the reader who wishes to read it. Let me just say, this is one of the best books I've read this year. When I came away, it stuck with me and I found myself thinking about it repeatedly.
I've read several books by Skye Warren and most of them deal with the dark edge of erotica and this is no different. As a reader, I love to be challenged with books and this author gives me that every time I read her books. WANDERLUST is no different. From the moment I picked this book up and started reading, I was pulled into the storyline. I needed to know what happened next.
This book had me all over the place while reading. I didn't have a clue what was going to happen next. There is nothing predictable or safe while reading. You never know what is going to happen. Evie and Hunter were so much alike and yet not, and in his own way, he helped Evie to see the world around her.
Evie is a character I loved. She's strong, conflicted and unsure, which in her situation matches what she should feel. I wanted to scream at the book and at other times sigh.
Hunter is an intriguing character. At times I despised him for the way he treated Evie and at times I loved him. His character made me feel like a yoyo in the ways I felt toward him. He's a strong part of the book and by the end of it, I was relieved by how the author finally told his story through Evie.
If you like to read something different that will take you out of your comfort zone, then this is the book for you. I loved this book. It was nice to read something different.
