Dark Wild Night by Christina Lauren | Book Review

Dark Wild Night by Christina Lauren

Reading Group: M for Mature

Personal Rating: 5 out of 5 

Given Summary: Lola and Oliver like to congratulate themselves on having the good sense not to consummate their drunken Las Vegas marriage. If they'd doubled-down on that mistake, their Just Friends situation might not be half as great as it is now. 
...Or so goes the official line. 
In reality, Lola's wanted Oliver since day one-and over time has only fallen harder for his sexy Aussie accent and easygoing ability to take her as she comes. More at home in her studio than in baring herself to people, Lola's instinctive comfort around Oliver nearly seems too good to be true. So why ruin a good thing? 
Even as geek girls fawn over him, Oliver can't get his mind off what he didn't do with Lola when he had the chance. He knows what he wants with her now...and it's far outside the friend zone. When Lola's graphic novel starts getting national acclaim-and is then fast-tracked for a major motion picture-Oliver steps up to be there for her whenever she needs him. After all, she's not the kind of girl who likes all that attention, but maybe she's the kind who'll eventually like him
Sometimes seeing what's right in front of us takes a great leap of faith. And sometimes a dark wild night in Vegas isn't just the end of a day, but the beginning of a bright new life...
Cover: A classic Christina Lauren book cover we've all come to love.  This novel depicts Oliver wearing a t-shirt and jeans.  I love that the Wild Seasons boys aren't as suit and tie as the Beautiful Series boys.  This cover shows a very relaxed man and proves that who you dress can say a lot about you even without seeing your face or knowing anything.

My Review: LOLIVER!!  I love these geeks.  Their story is very unique to the Wild Seasons because they're friends from the start and they slowly ease in to being in a relationship.  Obviously, Mia and Ansel didn't take anything slow and Harlow and Finn hated each other until the last moment.  Oliver and Lola are so cute and you just spend the whole time they're apart wishing they were together.  It's s little funny though because compared to other CL books this one started off a little slow and it was kinda frustrating, but it had to start that way because that's who these characters are.  I'm not going to lie to you guys though, this one wasn't my favorite of the series.  I think that Mia and Ansel will always have such a big place in my heart, the same way Hanna and Will does, and to me I don't think anyone will ever compare.  I still loved it don't get me wrong.  It was sweet and I loved Oliver and Lola's geeky personalities.  I also loved Lola and how she was trying to make a point that even though she is young (and a woman) she can still be successful and get things done the way she wants them to be done.  She's a good role model to have.

Smile!  I'll talk to you soon!xxx
