Review: Wild Abandon by Jeannine Colette

When you fall in-love it’s forever
But sometimes forever comes with a price.

I never meant to meet Nathaniel Teller. It was by accident, on a Tuesday, that I walked into his bar. He was solemn, intense and hiding a secret behind those stoic green eyes.

I never intended to fall in-love with him. We were supposed to be just friends. But I fell for him hard, deep. There’s no turning back.

I never thought his past would be so dark. And if I thought I had any chance of being in his future, I was wrong. Because his past is his future.

And I need to walk away.

If you are looking for a beautiful, yet heart-wrenching story line with an ooooh sooo delicious slow burn, look no further! Wild Abandon *insert dreamy sigh here* is everything I did not know I was looking for in a book. This book... just...GAH! I adore every freaking thing about it!!
 
"I kiss him for the first time. I kiss hime for the last time. I kiss him forever."

This is the first Book of Jeannine Colette's that I've read and it certainly won't be the last. Colette has such a way with words, one that captivates and consumes you. With the perfect combination of heart warming, melting and breaking moments mixed with the perfect amount of swoon and witty banter...it's just...well...Perfect!! One minute I'd be smiling, the next tears would be running down my face, then all of a sudden I'd be laughing. Wild Abandon is a true emotional roller-coaster ride through Napa Valley chalked full of All. The. Feels. Jeannine brought such life and realism to her characters. I couldn't help falling in love with Crystal, Nate and all of the secondary characters that make up a huge part of their journey to a Happily Ever After.
 
"Love is like wine. You can't add sugar and mask the flavor, pretending it's something it's not. Love is like that. When you meet the right person, you'll know. And you won't be able to let go."

At thirty, Crystal is looking for her forever love. After a short lived marriage and several failed dates courtesy of her many online dating apps, she packs her bags, temporarily leaving NYC for a life reboot near San Fransisco.
 
"If he doesn't measure up, I won't settle down. Been there, done that, and it left me with a broken heart and an annulment."

Armed with a new online dating profile and checklist in a new town, let the dates commence! Little does she know the first man she's laid eyes on in town might be the perfect man for her...although he doesn't meet any criteria on her checklist. *gasp*
 
"Where I'm interested in love, marriage and a baby carriage, he's swindling it up at a bar."

And this is where things get reeeeeeeeeeeeeeeally interesting. At this point I recommend one-clicking this baby and dig in!  Enjoy *grin*
 
"If I never love again, I need this memory to take  me through the lonely nights. I know you have a past, but I need you to treat me like I am your future."
