Blog Tour: Gone Wild by @karenmbryson #review

Romantic Comedy
Date Published: May 15, 2016

Go BACK TO BOOKMAN with USA TODAY BESTSELLING AUTHOR Dakota Madison's new #LoveinMidlife #ComingofMiddleAge romantic comedy series.

Tenured English professor Bly Daniels believes the short walk from her campus office to the university library is too much exposure to the harsh elements of the outdoors. She would prefer to spend her days (and nights) comfortably seated indoors reading classic literature.

When Bly is arrested for reading one of the great books while driving home, a judge sentences her to thirty days of community service with The Wild Way, a therapeutic wilderness program for troubled teens.

There she meets Turner Wild, the owner and operate of the wilderness program. Turner is everything Bly despises: rugged, unrefined and outdoorsy. For Bly a trip to hell sounds more desirable than spending an entire month with Turner and his band of hooligans as they traverse the woods of rural northwest New Jersey communing with nature.

Bly certainly never expects to form a bond with the troubled teens she's been assigned to mentor and forge an unlikely relationship with their fearless leader, Turner Wild.

I get the point of the book cover, but it didn't completely work for me. I don't think it gives off the Romantic Comedy vibe when you look at it at all. 

I enjoyed the fact that the characters were a bit older. It was a later in life romance and these days its nice to read about characters who are more believable in their age and place in life. 

I liked the fact that the female lead had so many issues to deal with. It was a bit of a change from the typical bad boy lead. 

The troubled teen aspect was a very enlightening one to read about and I think that and the teens and their problems really added another layer to the story.
