Genre: Contemporary Romance
Series: Wild Seasons #3
I absolutely love older Christina Lauren books. They have so much heart, but also a lot of steamy scenes (that are very evidently missing in their newer books). This whole series probably contains my favorite books from them (Dirty Rowdy Thing I think will always be my favorite). I love the story of a group of guys meeting a group of girls and then whoops they’re accidentally married in Vegas!
Lola and Oliver have been connected since book 1 in the series when they married each other in Vegas (read book 1 for the whole story), but had the marriage annulled because they realized what they had done after the alcohol wore off. And since then they remained friends. But underneath the friendship they have had feelings for one another and they both finally realize that they want more from one another than just a platonic friendship.
Dark Wild Night was such a wonderful friends-to-lovers romance. Unlike newer Christina Lauren books this book had a lot of steamy scenes, but I feel like the intimacy added to the story. I loved the fact that Lola was a comic book creator and Oliver had a comic store! They were so cute together.
Christina Lauren’s writing is always so beautiful and Dark Wild Night was no exception. I loved the other facets in this book that made it so lovely. The relationship that Lola has with his dad, Not-Joe’s relationship with Oliver and of course seeing the group again!
Although Dark Wild Night can be read as a standalone I really think that the first two books need to be read before so that you can get the full impact of Lola and Oliver’s aka Loliver‘s friendship.
