Wilder Cover



He’s Paxton Wilder.

Twenty-two-year-old, tattooed, smoking-hot leader of the Renegades.

Five time X Games medalist.

The world is his playground—especially this year—and for the next nine months I’m stuck as his tutor on the Study at Sea program.

He’s too busy staging worldwide stunts for his documentary to get to class.

But if I can’t get him to take academics seriously, I’ll lose my scholarship…if I don’t lose my heart first.

Six unlikely friends on a nine-month cruise with the Study at Sea program will learn that chemistry is more than a subject and the best lessons aren’t taught in the classroom…but in the heart.





Wooh!This book is quite different from the sports romances I've been reading lately.I haven't read any of Rebecca Yaros' books before.I'm glad I read Wilder now.

In this book, we have a group of athletes called the Renegades, all into extreme sports.They go around the world risking their lives, doing extreme stunts and living on the edge.They became popular through their YouTube channel and have won the X Games many times.Now, they are also filming a documentary.Paxton Wilder is the main figure in the Renegades, and he is on the Athena, as a part of the Study At Sea program since his father insists that he must earn a degree too.At the same time, he also  has to film the documentary.

Leah has been given a full scholarship to the Study At Sea program where she will be joined by her best friend,Rachel.All she has to do is tutor Paxton Wilder.But since Rachel got sick, Leah has to be onboard the Athena for the first three months without her BFF.She is an extraordinary student and is diligent.She has had a painful past which she is trying to move on from.The certain incident has left her with a fear of heights and with the silent fear of losing those she loves.When she first meets Paxton she is equal parts intrigued and terrified.

She doesn't want to be another one of his girls, and makes it clear that she will be there to tutor him alone in the beginning.But, Paxton knows that there is something really different about Leah.She takes up a challenge even though she is terrified of it.As they spend time with each other and slowly become friends they uncover many layers.The attraction between them burns hot.Paxton broadens Leah's horizons and dares her to be her wilder self.But with Leah's tragic past and Paxton's love for the extreme sports will they be able to hold on to each other , especially when it looks like Paxton might be keeping a few secrets?

 The characters in this book were truly amazing!The chemistry between Paxton and Leah was palapable.I loved how he brought out her fun side and dared her to live freely again.In the same way Leah supports and brings light into Paxton's life.The secondary characters-especially Paxton's sister, were well written.The writing also flowed seamlessly and captured me.The setting was also beautiful!Man, can I also sign up for a Study At Sea program that would be like this?I would be truly happy if someone like Paxton was also on it ;)

Can't wait for the next book in the series!If you're looking for an edgy,different and completely original New Adult Sports Romance you should definitely give this one a shot.
