Nikos is in line to be the next Secret
Keeper of his Clan, the only clan members who could find
Nightlings by reading their dreams and thoughts. Nightlings
drink blood and steal Clan people from their beds. Nikos is
also mated to Rand, a cruel and selfish man, Chief of the
Hunters and pretty much head of the clan as well. During a
hunt with Rand, Nikos meets Alexei, the Nightling they’ve
been tracking and Nikos begins the ride of his life.
Willa Okati has created a futuristic
time-traveling species in the Nightlings, who also require
their intended mates to survive. Nikos has always known he
was different and has kept hidden and buried deep his own
nature and basic desires. Alexei finds him in the future
and sets out to prove to Nikos he’s more like Alexei than
Nikos ever dreamed.
In Wild Ride, I liked the
tension, anticipation, and sexual gratification between
Alexei and Nikos. There were some things that were never
really explained, like how Nikos was stolen in the first
place and taken to the future or how Alexei found him.
Nikos’ first ride on the motorcycle was exciting and made me
remember the first time I was ever on the back of a bike,
and said “Wow”, yeah, it was like that!!! Nightlings like
to give and take pain especially during love play, and it
was fun to watch Nikos learn about his true-self.
