Review: Dark Wild Night by Christina Lauren

Sunday, September 20, 2015

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.
But what didn't happen in Vegas seems to follow them everywhere.

Lola and Oliver like to congratulate themselves on having the good sense to not consummate their drunken Las Vegas wedding. If they’d doubled-down on that mistake, their Just Friends situation might not be half as great as it is now.
... Or so goes the official line.

In reality, Lola’s wanted Oliver since day one—and over time has only fallen harder for his sexy Aussie accent and easygoing ability to take her as she comes. More at home in her studio than in baring herself to people, Lola’s instinctive comfort around Oliver nearly seems too good to be true. So why ruin a good thing?

Even as geek girls fawn over him, Oliver can’t get his mind off what he didn’t do with Lola when he had the chance. He knows what he wants with her now ... and it’s far outside the friend zone. When Lola’s graphic novel starts getting national acclaim—and is then fast-tracked for a major motion picture—Oliver steps up to be there for her whenever she needs him. After all, she’s not the kind of girl who likes all that attention, but maybe she’s the kind who’ll eventually like him.

Sometimes seeing what’s right in front of us takes a great leap of faith. And sometimes a dark wild night in Vegas isn’t just the end of a day, but the beginning of a bright new life...
My Review:
I fell in love time and time again with the characters in this series.  Oliver is Lola's #1 fan and her best friend. He is also the owner of his own comic book store called Downtown Graffick. He is funny, smart, a little geeky and a lot filthy. In other words, I love him. Lola is such a brilliant, lovable character. She is extremely talented and creative and she puts all that she has into the things that she loves and I really admire her character for that.

This book had an amazing story full of love, humor and sprinkled with a little bit of filth. The scenes between Lola and Oliver could make anyone blush six shades to Sunday. I loved how Oliver was the perfect mixture of geeky and dirty. I loved his relationship with Lola even more. He knew exactly what she needed, when she needed it and what he could do for her without Lola ever having to actually say anything. They had their own little language in which they would communicate without anybody else understanding and I thought that their bond was so special. 

I also want to talk about Not-Joe because it is practically impossible for me to not bring him up when he was such a huge reason for how much I enjoyed reading Dark Wild Night. He was often the comedy relief of the book. I had moments in which I had to put the book down from how much I was laughing. It was impossible to keep a straight face wherever he's involved.

There was a tiny, frustrating roller coaster ride towards the end but it just added more to the story. I honestly can't think of something I didn't enjoy in this book. I truly enjoyed every single bit of this beautiful book and I cannot wait for the next book in this amazing series.
