Go BACK TO BOOKMAN with Dakota Madison’s new #LoveinMidlife #ComingofMiddleAge romance 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.Each full-length novel in Dakota Madison’s LOVE IN MIDLIFE romance series can be read as a stand-alone or as part of the series. Each story features one of the graduates of Bookman College attending their 25th reunion.

Review :

“Gone Wild” was not my first book by Dakota Madison. Longer time ago I already read “Community Service”, so I kind of knew that I would at least like the writing style of this author.

The Blurb sounded nice because I like bookish characters but what I wasn’t so sure about was how I would feel about the age of the characters. I can not remember reading many novels that featured people old enough to have 25th reunion at their college. Not sure why but it just IS like that.
But I was happy to see that the fact that the leading characters were older than I am used to did not interfere to much with the story- to be honest they could have been younger or older without it mattering to much.
Bly reminded me a lot of someone I know so I kind of understood her way of thinking and I like how her character was constructed. The banter between Turner and Bly is just hilarious at times.
So in total I can recommend this book because what you read in the Blurb is exactly what you get. And funny was also the fact that I could see the whole setting like a movie developing in front of me – so I am pretty sure you will have an enjoyable time while you are reading this.
