The scorching tale of one girl, two brothers and a love triangle…that’s not.

Olivia Townsend is nothing special. She’s just a girl working her way through college so she can return home to help her father run his business. She’s determined not to be the second woman in his life to abandon him, even if it means putting her own life on hold. To Olivia, it’s clear what she must do. Plain and simple. Black and white.

But clear becomes complicated when she meets Cash and Nash Davenport. They’re brothers. Twins.
Cash is everything she’s always wanted in a guy. He’s a dangerous, sexy bad boy who wants her in his bed at any cost. He turns her insides to mush and, with just one kiss, makes her forget why he’s no good for her.

Nash is everything she’s ever needed in a guy. He’s successful, responsible and intensely passionate. But he’s taken. Very taken, by none other than Marissa, Liv’s rich, beautiful cousin. That doesn’t stop Olivia from melting every time he looks at her, though. With just one touch, he makes her forget why they can never be together.

Black and white turns to shades of gray when Olivia discovers the boys are hiding something, something that should make her run as far and as fast as she can. But it’s too late to run. Olivia’s already involved. And in love. With both of them.

Both brothers make her heart tremble. Both brothers set her body on fire.

She wants them both.

And they want her.

How will she ever choose between them?

Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance- Please be advised that this book is NOT YA friendly, not even in a New Adult category!  

As if that's not enough, I have a fantastic excerpt for you. 

Excerpt 5: 

“I like to use all my senses to get a good lay of the land.”
“Lay of the land?” she asks, the corners of her mouth dimpling.
“Of course,” I reply.  “So I can plan my attack.”
“Do tell.” 
“First I start with touch.”  I reach out and brush one dimple with my fingertip then slowly drag it inward, across her pouty bottom lip.  “Touch is invaluable.  The texture of the terrain tells me how…aggressive my attack needs to be.  Some places require a much more delicate approach than others.”
“I see,” she says softly, her warm breath tickling my finger.  “What else?”
“Smell,” I say, sliding my hand into her hair to hold it back as I bury my face in the lightly scented skin of her neck.  “A certain scent can tell me if I’m heading in the right direction.  Something sweet.  Something…musky,” I murmur. 
I hear her gasp when I gently bite the flesh beneath her ear.  “And hearing,” I whisper.  “Sometimes the softest sounds, even a moan can tell me a great deal about how close I am to my attaining my goal.”
I feel her hands latch onto my forearms.  Her fingernails are biting into my skin through my shirt.  All I can think about is how I want to feel them on the skin of my back instead.
Her breath is coming fast and shallow in my ear.  “What else?” she pants.
I lean back and look down into her face.  Her lids are heavy over her dazzling eyes and her cheeks are flushed with everything that’s happening between us.  She doesn’t want to stop either.  There’s no doubt in my mind.
Her eyes flicker to my mouth and back again.  “And what do you taste?”
“Everything.  I want to taste everything.”

This is a book that sounds like a must read for fans of this type of book. I know I am dying to read it!! Now onto the giveaway. One ebook copy of M. Leighton's fantastic New York Times bestseller New Adult book, The Wild Ones. I loved this book. It has mature content and I would recommend it for 17 years old and up.  Open Internationally. 

**MATURE CONTENT ADVISORY: May not be suitable for younger readers**

Passion as hot as midnight in the South and love as wild as the horses they tame.

Camille “Cami” Hines is the darling daughter of the South’s champion thoroughbred breeder, Jack Hines. She has a pedigree that rivals some of her father’s best horses. Other than feeling a little suffocated at times, Cami thought she was pretty happy with her boyfriend, her life and her future.

But that was before she met Patrick Henley.

“Trick” blurs the lines between what Cami wants and what is expected of her. He’s considered the “help,” which is forbidden fruit as far as her father is concerned, not to mention that Trick would be fired if he ever laid a hand on her. And Trick needs his job. Desperately. His family depends on him.

The heart wants what the heart wants, though, and Trick and Cami are drawn to each other despite the obstacles. At least the ones they know of.

When Trick stumbles upon a note from his father, it triggers a series of revelations that could ruin what he and Cami have worked so hard to overcome. It turns out there’s more to Trick’s presence at the ranch than either of them knew, secrets that could tear them apart.
