5 Faves of 2017 & Giveaway #4: Becoming A Vincent (The Wild Ones #1) by C.M. Owens

We are winding down now. This is my 4th post of 5 Faves & 5 Giveaways. These are my Top 5 Favorite Books of 2017!

The 4th of my Top 5 Books in no special order is Becoming A Vincent by C.M. OwensNow this book was not earth shattering or life changing. This was just plain old fun. Like rolling on the ground laugh my ass off fun. Sometimes you just need a book like this and I thought this was just so unique. I can’t find any other book like this and  I had such a great time reading this that I had to put it on my Top 5.

I also really liked Going Wild (The Wild Ones #2) and I added my review for that as well below. Both books can be read as a standalone.

Becoming A Vincent (The Wild Ones #1)

When you live in a place where “turbo speed” internet is a slight step above dial-up, men carry on nine-year beard-growing challenges out of stubborn pride, and your brothers do things like nail all your panties to the outside of your cabin just for funsies, you tend to be a little crazy. You can call it a “locational” hazard, if you will.

That’s Tomahawk for you.

We rank people based on just how crazy they are. And the four craziest families in town are called the Wild Ones.
I’m on the bottom tier of those, so technically I’m not as crazy as the other Wild Ones. In fact, if it wasn’t for my brothers and their endless antics, I wouldn’t be considered a Wild One at all. Ahem. Sure. We’ll go with that.

Anyway, I have a best friend who endures it all with me. Benson Nolans is my one, constant favorite person.
Without him, I’d probably go really crazy, and not the fun kind. It’d be ridiculous, after three years of a flawless friendship, to mess that all up by falling for him.

I mean, even if we did get a little too close one night, it’d be reckless endangerment. Even if we did suddenly feel the chemistry that’s always been there and stop toeing the line, it’d be a foolish risk to take.

It’d be stupid to start hoping a really fun, but completely irrational, night with zero inhibitions might accidentally happen.
Really stupid…

 Going Wild (The Wild Ones #2)

Wild Ones Tip #109
We’re the reason the gene pool needs a lifeguard.

People often ask me what in the hell convinced me to move to Tomahawk, Washington, where the four corners of crazy are known as the Wild Ones. They want to know what possessed me to live next door to the Vincents—the same ones who think it’s acceptable to fish with dynamite if the fish aren’t biting the hooks they so generously attempt to use.
They want to know why I ever thought I’d make it in the woods with bugs, bears, and other things that want to take a bite out of me.
I tell them all the same thing…
It’s a long, crazy story.
And of course, I blame one girl.


* Can be read as a stand-alone
* No cliffhanger
* Adult language and content
*If you’re looking for a serious, intense read… this isn’t that. This is the book to take a break from the more serious ones. 😉

Becoming A Vincent (The Wild Ones #1)

5 Tomahawk Stars

This book was crazy fun!! It was so unconventional. I’m trying to think of a book that is similar and I just can’t.

Tomahawk is a town filled with crazy people who live by their own crazy rules. Don’t read this book in public because you won’t be able to control your laughter and people might think you’re crazy.

This is also a great love story with great steamy scenes. Despite all the humor in this book there is still a great connection between these characters and you definitely feel the sweetness of this romance.

This is like a ROM-COM on crack. Highy recommended! Can’t wait for the other books in this series to come out.

Going Wild (The Wild Ones #2)

4 Shirley Temple Stars

This is my life.
This is my home.
This is my family.
This is my Tomahawk.

I absolutely love the Wild Ones and I love Tomahawk. This book is crazy and silly and wild and just so much fun!

Liam is an apparently normal person living in L.A. He ‘s wealthy and his friends and family tend to mooch off him. After he has a life threatening accident he realizes that he really doesn’t have anyone in his life that loves him. Then he meets Kylie.

“I have no problem stalking you wherever you go. I’m tired of being fake. Tired of feeling fake. Tired of fake people. Tired of everything superficial. I want my life to be real, and that means I have to be just as real.”

He ends up moving to Tomohawk to be with her and starts off as an outsider witnessing the craziness that surrounds the Wild Ones. He blends in really well with the people of the town and he starts to wonder if the craziness is contagious. So much of this book didn’t make sense but you just roll with it.

To add the cherry on top, this book was also very sexy. Highly recommended if you want an over the top crazy, hilarious ROM-COM!
