Book Review of Wilder by G.K. DeRosa

Wilder (The Guardian #1) by G.K. DeRosa
Genre: Young Adult (Paranormal Romance)
Date Published: June 12, 2015
Publisher: Self

All that Celeste Wilder ever wanted was to find someone who would sweep her off her feet like she had seen in countless romantic movies. When she meets the gorgeous and mysterious Constantin brothers her senior year of high school, she gets much more than what she had bargained for. As they introduce her to an exciting supernatural world that she never imagined existed, she makes a startling discovery about her own family legacy and is forced to make a decision that will change her life forever.

Wilder is the first book in The Guardian Series by G.K. DeRosa. Celeste seems like a pretty smart girl. She takes all the news in her life fairly well all things considered. The story has a little bit of a Vampire Diaries feel to it with the two brothers, Nico and Roman. They worked into their own characters though as the story progressed. It was pretty fast paced, and though I feel like some things were a little too easy (I expected more difficulty), it was certainly entertaining and kept my attention.

Wilder by G.K. DeRosa was kindly provided to me by Xpresso Book Tours for review. The opinions are my own.

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.
