Dark Wild Night
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 . . .

“The third book in Christina Lauren’s Wild Seasons series, Dark Wild Night (Gallery; paperback, $16), is a smart and sexy friends-to-lovers romance. Graphic novelist Lola and comic book store owner Oliver were married once, in a drunken mistake of a Vegas wedding. Riddled with fear and self-doubt, neither had the courage to admit that the wedding might have been precisely what they wanted. Lola is a particular gem — socially awkward and introverted. Her fear of being abandoned by those she loves makes for a deceptively simple, nuanced romance. Lola can’t believe that someone as wonderful as Oliver (he is rather wonderful) would ever love her, and Lauren (the pen name of writing team Christina Hobbs and Lauren Billings) captures her insecurities in a powerful way that will hit close to home for many.”– Sarah MacLean, Washington Post
“This book just had it all. The Wild Seasons trilogy continues to get better and better. Because when it comes to sexual tension that keeps you furiously flipping pages, no one does it quite like this talented duo of authors. I love their characters, their edgy and unique stories, the scorching sexiness, and of course, their sharp, infectious wit. Read this book!”– Vilma Gonzalez, Vilma's Book Blog
“Christina Lauren is back with another sexy and wild romp. This series follows the relationships of three couples who all got married after a drunken night in Vegas: One couple remained married, another annulled the marriage only to fall in love in book two, and the third annulled their marriage and have remained close. Lola and Oliver have become best friends, thanks in part to the fact that they never consummated their short marriage. But normal best friends probably don’t secretly have feeling for each other—feelings that go beyond lust and into love. Oliver is willing to take things slow to be with Lola, but her career is skyrocketing and Lola suddenly feels like she’s being spread too thin to make all of her dreams come true. This romance between a comic book store owner and a graphic novelist is geek love at its finest.”– Kelly Gallucci, Bookish
