I didn’t think I could love Christina Lauren more than I already did, but of course, I was wrong. I just want to thank the stars for Christina Lauren, because they gave us the wonder that is LOLIVER! God, how I adored this couple, how I adored OLIVER. Dark Wild Night is absolutely… wonderful. It’s another exceptionally well-written, gorgeously romantic, sexy-as-hell book from an author duo, who, with every release, continues to prove why they are one of my top favorite authors. I loved Lola and Oliver’s story – these two brilliant characters will forever be in my heart!
Lola and Oliver are the only two of their group of six who have remained unmarried after their fiasco in Vegas. They’ve become close friends now, but the thing is… they’ve fallen for each other. The time they spend together, even as friends, is so precious to both of them… I could FEEL the incredible bond Lola and Oliver have. When they finally go for more than being Just Friends, it’s simply the most heart-warming, exhilarating thing ever.
My heart wants to escape, to flap out of my body and into his. And, God. Is this what it means to become infatuated with someone? A heart becomes a hybrid, half yours, half theirs. Mine beats like this because it wants out. My chest aches to let his heart in.
These two are MEANT TO BE with each other – Loliver is absolutely perfect. But it’s not exactly the best timing for Lola, since her comic Razor Fish is coming to the big screen, and she’s stressed to the max. Thankfully, Oliver seems to always be there for her, but can Lola handle her newfound relationship with him while balancing the pressure and stress that comes from her job?
Lola and Oliver are so different from Christina Lauren’s previous characters, but I feel like these two characters are the ones with the most heart, the ones who felt the most REAL to me. Lola is beautifully flawed, a little frustrating, but endlessly endearing and so easy to relate to. I admired this girl so much, and I applaud Christina Lauren for writing such an incredible heroine. Oliver is the quiet, strong, unwavering hero who you can’t help but fall so. hard. for. God, this man is so wonderful – you will definitely find a new book boyfriend in Oliver. His never-ending support for Lola, his complete devotion to her, his raw sensuality, his dirty, filthy mouth – everything about him is just perfect.
“Well, I don’t think I’ve ever loved anyone quite like this. In this sort of giddy, obliterating game-changing way. Where I can see myself with her for the rest of my life.”
Dark Wild Night is, in my opinion, the hottest book of Christina Lauren’s yet. The connection Lola and Oliver have is unlike any other. I loved that they started out friends, that they have such a solid foundation for their relationship. The chemistry between them is explosive, and I just couldn’t get enough of them and their story.
Christina Lauren has such a talent for writing. It’s emotional, funny, meaningful – I loved nearly everything about this book. I did get a little frustrated with Lola during the middle of the book, and this part was a little too slow-paced for my taste. But still, overall, I really, really loved this book.
“Your love is branded on my brain; yours is still the only kiss I want.”
I can’t end this review without talking about the whole Wild Seasons gang – Mia and Ansel, Harlow and Finn of course all make appearances, which made me so giddy. But the real star of the book was Not-Joe!!! I freaking LOVED this man – he is absolutely hilarious, and his craziness is so endearing. I laughed so much and so hard in this book because of him!
Dark Wild Night is a gorgeous read – from the writing, to the characters, I adored it all. This is a must read for fans of the author – and if you haven’t read Christina Lauren yet, you are missing out on some fantastic romances. I highly recommend this book!
