    I love Loliver (Lola + Oliver) I love this book!

    After falling in love with the stories of Mia and Ansel (Sweet Filthy Boy), Harlow and Fin (Dirty Rowdy Thing), I couldn't wait to catch up with the gang again. I obsessively hit the refresh button on my browser as I waited for the release of Dark Wild Night. Thankfully the dynamic writing duo of Christina Lauren never disappoints. The witty banter and their bravery to not shy away from the intimate moments, kept me up until the small hours, devouring their words. I love, love, love this book. I love Loliver (Lola + Oliver) and the rest of the Wild Seasons crew. Besties Lola, Harlow and Mia recently graduated from UCSD head off to Vegas to celebrate. They drink, they dance, they party, and they all get married. Lola and Oliver never consummated their nuptials. The annulment was carried out before the ink dried. Even though everyone around them can see the unresolved sexual tension radiating between them, the comic loving couple grow close nestled comfortably in the friend zone. "Oliver is both my former husband and my current crush, but it will forever remain unrequired: our marriage was never really a marriage. It was that-thing-we-did-in-Vegas." Lorelei Louise Castle, known as Lola, has had a whirlwind couple of months. Recently graduated, Lola is already balancing the success and recognition from the publishing of her graphic novel Razor Fish. A labor of love she has been nurturing for years. With the news that her novel has been optioned as a movie, Lola's life moves from busy to overwhelming. "I've been writing and drawing Razor Fish since I was twelve, and every single second of the fun part, to me, has been creating it." The ever stoic Australian born Oliver Lore is the owner of the comic book store Downtown Graffick, and Lola's ex-husband. His boyish charm and nerdy sensibilities come together in a tightly put together package of muscle and man. He is methodical and quiet in business and in love. "'One of my many attributes. Along with hardworking, good at maths, and punctual." She shakes her head, swallowing a sip quickly so she can contradict me: 'Hey, at the top of that list should be the accent.'" I am not a comic book fan, and I know very little about the sub-culture that inspires the many fan boys and girls. Even though Loliver relates to the world around them through the context of their favorite comic book characters, they are relatable and feel like real people...like friends. Your heart will ache for them as they struggle through the path from friends to lovers. And, your temperature will rise from their passion. Lola not only feels passion for Oliver, but she is also passionate about her work. Her struggle to achieve a work life balance was one of the most relatable and raw experiences in reading this book. I cheered for Lola when she didn't automatically relent to her romantic feelings, but fought for her career and goals. And, I fell even more in love with Oliver as he tried to offer support. The Christina Lauren team is know for their sensual writing. Dark Wild Night promises its fair share of taboo and libidinous acts detailed so perfectly it will leave you panting. But, one of my favorite parts of the books comes from the comic relief of Not-Joe. Not-Joe plays the stories fool (archetype not idiot...well maybe a little). His nonconforming absurdities had me LOL... literally. Sometimes so much I was worried I would wake the house up. I hope the writing team considers spending more time with this character. "Not-Joe, Oliver's sole employee and a mohawked stoner we all feel a certain pet-owner level of fondness for," Dark Wild Night is a highly recommended and truly enjoyable read. There is passion and pain, laughter and lust. You'll even reminisce with old friends. The only problem is now I can't wait for the next installment, Wicked Sexy Liar.

    Fantastic!!

    The story of Lola and Oliver is one of my favorites already. They are two of the most lovable characters Christina Lauren has written to date. The tension between them is seriously off the charts. What can i say? It's Hot hot hot!

    Good, but not for $11.99

    It's a good book. Not as electrifying as the others but OK! Why I gave her three is because of the cost. 11.99 is far more than what I believe that because worth. Should've been half that cost.

    sweet, sexy and funny never goes out of style

    Alright ladies and gents, are you ready for Oliver and Lola? Because, I am pretty excited about you reading Oliver and Lola, or as twitter has dubbed them: #Loliver. I feel like Dark Wild Night has a different feel than other Christina Lauren books. Loliver just felt more real and relaxed than some of the other characters this duo has brought to life. For example, Bennett and Chloe who, well, they had quite the start to their relationship. Those two were like freaking bunnies, and they didn't even like each other that much, not at first anyway {*sigh* I love those two}. Then we have Max and Sarah who have a particular taste in extracurricular activities. My most favorite of favorite couples, Will and Hanna {Seriously, holy freaking swoon with those two}. Actually, Loliver reminds me a little bit of . . .well, Will and Hanna, because I have no idea how to mash their two names together. Only, Will and Hanna had a bit more of a steam factor I think. With Will teaching Hanna how to find her inner vixen and all that. Oliver and Lola are just two very average people. I know what you are thinking, "Sarah, why are you slummin' on freaking Oliver and Lola? They're awesome." I'm so not, I promise. I wouldn't do that. And, I agree, they are awesome. And maybe they are not all that "normal" since she has a comic being made into a movie and he owns his own comic store. I guess what I am trying to say is that I feel like Oliver actually owns the comic store that is a block away from my apartment. That Dark Wild Night is not fiction, and the book only says that they are in San Diego so that Lola and Oliver can stay in hiding and don't have to worry about all the paparazzi that will harass them. But really, they are in Pasadena and they are two people that I could very much hang back with wearing chucks, a t-shirt and my most comfortable pair of jeans. They are my kinda people. Oliver and Lola are two very relatable characters who are trying to find their way in a very relatable relationship. Lola doesn't want to screw it up, she cares so much about Oliver, but she also has this great deal of attachment to her comic, it's her baby. So much is happening all at once and even if it's everything she could ever want it's all a bit overwhelming and scary. Oliver is the guy that is madly and deeply in love with the girl who just isn't quite ready, or at least she thinks she's not ready. Truth be told, I found a bit of myself in Lola and benefited from the wisdom that her dad gave her. I LOVE all the other characters that Christina Lauren has brought to life through their Beautiful Bastard and Wild Seasons series. Their talent of bringing together sweet, sexy and funny never goes out of style and Dark Wild Night is sure to be another success for Christina Lauren.

    Sexy Lovable Romance

    This is one of those cute, adorable romances with likable characters (and plenty of sexy). I enjoyed the whole thing. Lola and Oliver are good people. They are best friends wanting more. Life gets in the way a bit, but they're mature enough to get it right before it goes too far. Dark Wild Night was definitely worth my time, and Oliver is great book boyfriend material.
