Review ~ Something Wilder by Christina Lauren

Something WilderSomething Wilder by Christina Lauren
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I’ve read a lot a of Christina Lauren’s books and this read was a little different from what I expected. It had the second chance romance building, but they also threw a suspense element into the story as well. The treasure hunt storyline was a lot of fun and watching Lily and Leo reconnect was sweet, as they both had not really got over what they lost.

Their relationship from ten years ago was intense - it was hard for them to get past it and to forgive one another. Since then, they had both suffered and gone through so much, and moved on as best as they could. Lily was reluctant to let Leo back into her life as she’d been so sad and lost after Leo left. They still had a strong connection, and I could see that Leo was a patient man.

The treasure hunting and suspense kept me on my toes. I didn’t realise the story would take that kind of turn so the surprises kept coming. This duo delivered the story perfectly, ans I was captivated until the very end!

Title: Something Wilder
Author: Christina Lauren
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Published: May 17, 2022

Growing up the daughter of notorious treasure hunter and absentee father Duke Wilder left Lily without much patience for the profession… or much money in the bank. But Lily is nothing if not resourceful, and now uses Duke’s coveted hand-drawn maps to guide tourists on fake treasure hunts through the red rock canyons of Utah. It pays the bills but doesn’t leave enough to fulfill her dream of buying back the beloved ranch her father sold years ago, and definitely not enough to deal with the sight of the man she once loved walking back into her life with a motley crew of friends ready to hit the trails. Frankly, Lily would like to take him out into the wilderness—and leave him there.

Leo Grady knew mirages were a thing in the desert, but they’d barely left civilization when the silhouette of his greatest regret comes into focus in the flickering light of the campfire. Ready to leave the past behind him, Leo wants nothing more than to reconnect with his first and only love. Unfortunately, Lily Wilder is all business, drawing a clear line in the sand: it’s never going to happen.

But when the trip goes horribly and hilariously wrong, the group wonders if maybe the legend of the hidden treasure wasn’t a gimmick after all. There’s a chance to right the wrongs—of Duke’s past and their own—but only if Leo and Lily can confront their history and work together. Alone under the stars in the isolated and dangerous mazes of the Canyonlands, Leo and Lily must decide whether they’ll risk their lives and hearts on the adventure of a lifetime.
