Happy Monday! I hope you all had a good weekend. I’m still scheduling posts because I’m away, but I assume I had an awesome weekend!
As always this is a Spoiler Free review.
I read Love in the Wild a couple of days ago because it was calling my name. After reading quite a few sci-fi romances where the inability to communicate was often big plot points that I adored and thought the whole Tarzan retelling would probably have a similar trope.
Anyway, let’s jump into the review.
Title: Love in the Wild
Author: Emma Castle
Genres: Romance, Retelling
Publication Date: September 28th 2020
When I Read It: June 28th 2021
Goodreads Rating: 3.90 Stars
A Sensual, Powerful, And Thought Provoking Tarzan Retelling. Eden Matthews stumbled upon the discovery of a lifetime while photographing wildlife deep in the heart of Africa…A gorgeous god of a man living in the wilds of the African jungle among a family of gorillas…When he saves her life she’s compelled to uncover the man’s tragic past and the fate which led him to grow up in the wild. But Eden soon learns she can take man from the wild, but she can’t take the wild out of the man…When her savage savior soon shows her just want he wants of her…her sensual surrender, she finds she can’t resist him teaching her how to love…in the wild.
This book is described as a love story, and it was that; both in an obvious way between Thorne and Eden (who were far too cute for their own good btw) but also between Thorne and the jungle. Everything about this book was like a love letter to the jungle – you could feel not only the character’s love and admiration for the environment but also the authors. Reading this was so addictive. It makes me want to run off into the jungle. (I would most certainly die though)
The plot was awesome – I’ve never read a Tarzan retelling before and this surpassed all my expectations.
The writing was exceptional! I literally cannot wait to get my hands on another Emma Castle book because I fell in love with the writing and the light humour.
I kind of already touched on how much I adored Thorne and Eden, was it a little insta-lovey…maybe but also it kind of worked well that way because Thorne had never met a female so it made sense – (plus it’s like that in Disney’s Tarzan too so I can accept it haha) The sex was amazing – so well written and emotional. Can you tell I just loved this book with my whole heart? Seriously, there is no other way I can describe it than it made my heart happy.
For the record – I claim Thorne – he’s mine.
Seriously, you all need to read this.
Overall Score = 9.3/10
Star Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
That’s all for today’s review folks.
This book was amazing and I really enjoyed it! It made me want to go outside – which says a lot for an agrophobe like me haha. Anyway, I’ll see you on Wednesday with my Word of the Week ❤
