Love So Wild by Marquita Valentine
Genre: Contemporary Romance
Publishing Date: December 13th, 2017
Pilot Elijah Lawson always knew he’d return to Jessamine, marry a hometown girl and settle into very predictable life. After all, he made promises to his parents that once he’d gotten his fill of adventure that he would do exactly that… and Eli was a man of his word. Only he's never been able to get the bewitching redhead he’d fallen hard for two years earlier out of his head and he’s afraid that no woman in Jessamine will ever measure up.
Unfortunately, that doesn’t stop his family from trying to set him up with every single woman in town… until Skye Holland shows up on his doorstep.
The only reason Skye Holland moved back to North Carolina was so she could do the right thing for her one year old son. A boy, after all, needed his father, while she… she simply needed a fresh start. But first, she has to let Eli know that their red-hot affair had consequences. Consequences she has no intentions of repeating, no matter how many old feelings come rushing to the surface when they’re together.
Too bad for Skye that Elijah has other ideas and he’s not going to let this second chance at love get away again.

She rushed out of the kitchen before anyone could stop her, going as fast as she could without breaking into a run. But by the time she got to her room, Elijah had caught up. He grabbed her by the arm and pushed her inside, closing the door behind them
“Mind telling me what that was all about?” he asked, even as sparks of desire tripped up and down her arm from where their skin touched.
Did he feel it, too?
“I was only stating the truth,” she insisted.
“Your truth is to tell us that we shouldn’t bother getting to know you because all that matters is Miles?”
She closed her eyes for a moment. “Of course, he’s all that matters. I stopped mattering as soon as he was born!”
“Well, that’s not how we do things in this family. You matter just as much."
I received an advanced copy of this book with the promise of an honest review.
Lawson men always do the right thing. It may take them a while to get it together, but they do. So when Skye Holland shows up on Elijah's doorstep with a one year old, claiming that Elijah is the father, he accepts that and is determined to make things right. Elijah and Skye were a couple for few months until things suddenly ended. Skye wants only the best for her son and that means having his father in his life. She has no expectations of Elijah. She just wants him to decide how involved he wants to be.
Of course Elijah wants to be involved. Like really involved. He immediately has the two of them move into this house. It doesn't take long for his family to get involved either, which of course freaks Skye out. But like Skye, they too want the best for her son and that means she is now a part of the Lawson family. Elijah stepped up and not only took responsibility for his son, but he also decided that Skye is and always has been the one for him. He just needs to prove that to her and it won't be easy.
I really enjoyed this book. We get to see some of the Lawson family again and they are, like always, awesome. Elijah's mother is a big help to him and his brothers and cousin are there to keep him humble. I loved watching him reconnect with Skye, while learning to be a father to his son.
