I brought them to the wilderness because we couldn’t cope with our reality.
The plan was to make a new life that didn’t include heartache.

No people. No technology. No interference.
Just us.
A chance to piece together what was broken.

But the wilderness is untamed and harsh.
Brutal and unforgiving.
It doesn’t give a damn about your feelings.

Tragedy lives there too.
No escaping the truths that won’t let you go.

All you can do is survive where love, no matter how beastly, is the only thing you can truly count on.

Confusing. Wrong. Twisted. Beautiful. Sick.

Love is wild.
And we’re going to set it free.

Warning: The Wild is an extremely taboo story. Most will find that the themes in this book will make you incredibly uncomfortable. This book is only for the brave, the open-minded, and the ones who crave love in even the most dismal of situations. Extreme sexual themes and violence in certain scenes, which could trigger emotional distress, are found in this story. If you are sensitive to heavy taboo themes, then this story is not for you.

MY REVIEW

✱✱✱✱✱ HUGE ASS WARNING!! ✱✱✱✱✱

This book right here... it ain't for everyone... many people are not even going to try it... even more will try and not finish... AND THAT'S OK. Because we all have different tastes and opinions on what we allow ourselves to read. Different strokes for different folks and all that. But THE WILD was straight up alright with me ;) Sure I had to suspend belief numerous times throughout the story. Sure it went against everything I firmly believe. Sure it took me right out of Normal Land and straight into fukry. It gave me exactly what I needed and I'm absolutely fine in the end.

My Review
EUREKA!! I was looking for a book that would have me questioning myself. Something that would take me out of the everyday. Something that would challenge me. And golly gee, I found it in The Wild. This story had me taking a hard look at my moral compass. It made me realize that I love nothing better than diving and splashing in the dark pool of K. Webster’s imagination.
"Her smiles are my sustenance. I don’t need food or water. I just need to see her blue eyes shining with love and adoration and joy."
Obviously I loved this story, but the same is true for every story I’ve conquered by this author. I use the word conquer because there is always a certain fear that I won’t like what I find when I read one of her darker books. Not because of the story held within its pages, but because of what I find out about myself while reading it. I never knew I craved such dark delights. And some of the people and circumstances that titillate me in her fictional world would absolutely appall me in reality. And yet, I can’t get enough. The Wild showed me how true that really is. And this speaks to how amazing this freedom of artistry is. I get the chance, over and over again, to escape into worlds that I wouldn’t even dream of in real life and bask in them, whether they be light-hearted romances, steamy romcoms, or dark and twisted taboo reads.
"Love, brilliant and deep and powerful, shines in his eyes. It burns me. Scalds me. Imprisons me. Suffocates me. But it also fills me. Fuels me. Frees me."
In keeping this review spoiler-free, I’m not going to mention any part of the plot. Not. One. Piece. Because giving away even one tidbit will ruin the surprise this author has in store for you. If you’ve ever read any of her dark romance reads before, you already know what you’re getting into. And if you haven’t… well, you’ve got to trust that she wouldn’t take you too far into the dark and depraved without feeding you some light.

In The Wild, the author provided me with a sordid and sinful getaway. Devon and Reed gripped my heart, my soul, and after the story was done, I found that they still haven’t let go.
