He’s someone she can’t trust…

She’s someone he thinks he knows…

Violet Wilson is a wallflower. Shy, serious, and accident-prone, she’s got a bad habit of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. The night she’s forced to pose with her friend might just be the worst time of all—that’s when she meets Jet Blevins. She knows better than to get involved with someone like him, but he touches her in ways she never expected, neverwanted before.

On the outside, Jet is a typical rocker, an arrogant lead guitarist who unapologetically lives a wild lifestyle. But on the inside, he’s battling demons and using the stage to escape the troubles of his past and the addictions of his present. Until the night he sees Violet standing at the back of the room. She brings his life into focus. She knows his secrets. She’s the girl he can’t forget, and the one thing he craves more than his addiction.

But can they ever hope to have a future when their very foundation is nothing but lies?


 I can proudly say that I am NO LONGER a M. Leighton virgin! This author has been on my TBR list FOREVER, and after finishing There’s Wild, Then There’s You, I really wish I would have started sooner. Damn, can Ms. Leighton write a sex scene or what?! The funny thing is, is that she doesn’t even throw it around everywhere. She builds, and builds, and builds it up, until us readers are screaming ‘GET IT ON ALREADY!’ LOL! But when they finally do ‘GET IT ON,’ it is pretty spectacular. Panty melting spectacular! 

M. Leighton brings us a unique Good Girl/Bad Boy love story. Violet is a professional, she is a loner, she stays away from relationships to avoid the emotional connection, and the heartbreak that will soon follow. Jet is your gorgeous, sex oozing rocker who uses sex and alcohol to dull the pain of his past. Both feel the intense, instant connection, and both are too scared to show who they truly are for fear of losing each other. The truth becomes stagnant, as they fall deeper and deeper down the rabbit hole. Building a relationship on a lie…not possible. The truth will come out eventually. The question is, how hard are you going to fight once it rears its ugly head?

Relating to Violet was simple for me. We both feel the constant need to try to fix everyone and everything, and put ourselves on the back burner. Relating to a character on such a deep level is always enlightening, and it of course made me questions some aspects of myself. All in all, I admired how strong Violet was with everything that was going on with her father, her cousin, her best friend, it’s a wonder why she just doesn’t say ‘FUCK IT ALL!’ And Jet, what to say about Jet Blevins…he is the typical bad boy who drowns his sorrows in the closest body. While reading the story, I did have a love/hate relationship towards him. It’s the lies that make me want to kick his ass, but the follow through was pretty amazing and it melted my heart.

There’s Wild, Then There’s You takes you on a steamy journey full of romance and deceit. This drama filled romance will fulfill the HEA Romance Junkie in you! Fans of Ms. Leighton will surely stand up and rejoice for another sexy read from this amazing writer. Being a newbie to M. Leighton, I can say that I will surely join the ranks of excited, devoted fans.

About M. Leighton

New York Times and USA Today Bestselling Author, M. Leighton, is a native of Ohio. She relocated to the warmer climates of the South, where she can be near the water all summer and miss the snow all winter. Possessed of an overactive imagination from early in her childhood, M. Leighton finally found an acceptable outlet for her fantastical visions: literary fiction. Having written over a dozen novels, these days M. Leighton enjoys letting her mind wander to more romantic settings with sexy Southern guys, much like the one she married and the ones you’ll find in her latest books. When her thoughts aren’t roaming in that direction, she’ll be riding horses, swimming in ponds and experiencing life on a ranch, all without leaving the cozy comfort of her office.

A note from M. Leighton: I love coffee and chocolate, even more so when they are combined. I’m convinced that one day they could be the basis for world peace. I also love the color red and am seriously considering dying my hair.
