WILD REBEL (Dirty Wild #1) by Laurelin Paige
Release Date: March 23, 2021   




We were supposed to run away after high school graduation. When she didn’t show up at our meeting place, I gathered my courage and went after her. It was a mistake. I left bloodied and bruised. My heart didn’t fair half as well. I had no choice but to walk away. Years passed. A decade. More. I traveled the world, settled halfway around the world, made myself a name and enough money that I didn’t have to look back. But I never got over her. And when my memories got the best of me, I went looking. Put all my effort behind the search. Even the best of the best private eyes couldn’t find the woman I’d deeply loved. Then, out of the blue, she calls. And, what she asks for, the favor that she wants? I never thought I'd be willing to take a life. But the truth is, and always has been: I'd do anything for her. Book one of three in the final trilogy in the Dirty Universe.  


Rating ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Laurelin Paige has created an addictive, dark, suspenseful and steamy fictional world. I'm always excited to revisit the Dirty Universe. Wild Rebel follows Cade Warren, one of Donovan's Kinkaid's partners at Reach (a famous publicity firm) and Jolie, his highschool girlfriend and the woman who broke his heart. They haven't seen each other in over a decade and out of the blue Jolie reaches out, asking for Cade's help with a rather dangerous task. No matter how much he tries not to get involved in the matter and keep a cold demeanour towards her, it's impossible for Cade to deny the still-burning desire he feels for Jolie and the need to be her saviour. 

The mystery behind Jolie's situation was quite intriguing, and the plotline was suspenseful enough to keep me invested in the story until the end. The world-building was interesting, with suspenseful moments that had me on the edge of my seat. The push and pull between the protagonists, the constant banter, the sweet moments and the steamy encounters were top notch. Also, Donovan Kinkaid's presence throughout the book was a real treat. Laurelin knows how to keep her readers entertained. I didn't expect the twist at the end, and after that cliffhanger, I'll be waiting on pins and needles for the next book.

With millions of books sold worldwide, Laurelin Paige is a New York Times, Wall Street Journal and USA Today Bestselling Author. She is a sucker for a good romance and gets giddy anytime there’s kissing, much to the embarrassment of her three daughters. Her husband doesn’t seem to complain, however. When she isn’t reading or writing sexy stories, she’s probably singing, watching Killing Eve or Letterkenny, or dreaming of Michael Fassbender.
