4 out of 5 (very good)

This is a Young Adult Paranormal Vampire book, with a complimentary tip of the hat to Buffy the Vampire Slayer (the TV series, not the film as it states in the book!). Celeste has nearly finished high school, and has her life planned out. Two brothers show up in town and her life takes on a dramatic twist. 

The writing style is smooth, the pace is steady and the storyline builds to the satisfying conclusion. The only problem I had was that sometimes, with no warning, the perspective would change from one character to another. This could be a bit confusing until I realised who it was that was now 'speaking'. 

Wilder is the first book in a new series that was enjoyable as well as exciting. I look forward to reading more about Celeste, Roman, Natalie, Nico and Brian. Definitely recommended.

G.K. De Rosa has been an avid reader from a very young age. At the precocious age of two, while living in Italy, she had memorized an entire children’s book in Italian and expertly turned the pages at the exact right moments of the story. As she grew up, she always enjoyed literature, no doubt having been instilled with a love of story telling from her early years in Catholic school where she was greatly influenced by exemplary teachers who taught her the value of English and Literature. Though she did not pursue writing in college and instead went for the more traditional route of International Business inspired by her love for travel and all things foreign, after a move to New York City, she found her creative writing side calling once again. She began writing a restaurant review blog, City Lights and Tasty Bites, detailing her other passion – food! The hectic hustle and bustle of the city, combined with long commuting times gave her the opportunity to spend more time reading and rekindled a lost love. After reading countless books in many diverse genres over the two years in New York City, and returning to her home state of Florida, she felt compelled to write something for herself. She had always felt particularly drawn to Young Adult novels and having been an eternal romantic at heart, a fantasy romance was a natural choice. She currently lives in South Florida with her real life Prince Charming and their fur baby, Nico the German shepherd.
