The Wild Ones by M. Leighton

Goodreads description:

Passion as hot as midnight in the South and love as wild as the horses they tame.

Camille “Cami” Hines is the darling daughter of the South’s champion thoroughbred breeder, Jack Hines. She has a pedigree that rivals some of her father’s best horses. Other than feeling a little suffocated at times, Cami thought she was pretty happy with her boyfriend, her life and her future.

But that was before she met Patrick Henley.

“Trick” blurs the lines between what Cami wants and what is expected of her. He’s considered the “help,” which is forbidden fruit as far as her father is concerned, not to mention that Trick would be fired if he ever laid a hand on her. And Trick needs his job. Desperately. His family depends on him.

The heart wants what the heart wants, though, and Trick and Cami are drawn to each other despite the obstacles. At least the ones they know of.

When Trick stumbles upon a note from his father, it triggers a series of revelations that could ruin what he and Cami have worked so hard to overcome. It turns out there’s more to Trick’s presence at the ranch than either of them knew, secrets that could tear them apart.

Mary's Review:

This is the second book that I have read that has a cowboy in it, this week!  What is wrong with me??? Oh, I can tell you ....... its the HOT Cowboys!

When I read M. Leighton's Madly series I thought it was the most unique reads.  When I began talking with Leighton on Twitter she informed me of this book.  I read the description and I thought, "Sound interesting".  Usually I read YA and supernatural, but a girl can change her mind. Right?!

Well, I am so glad that I read this! Talk about H-O-T! Trick (who's name is Patrick) meets Cami in a local bar.  It was an instant attraction.  However, a few problems are in their way: Cami has a boyfriend, Cami's dad, Jack is very strict and does not want Trick and Cami to hang out.  Trick works for Cami's father and has to keep his job.  Trick dropped out of college to come home and take care of his mother and little sister.

However, can you really stop true love? I have to say I was worried because M. Leighton through a HUGE twist into the story and I was unsure if their love could survive.

This is a GREAT STORY! I would recommend everyone go to Amazon and order it.
