Fate brought them together, but then it ripped them apart.
Eight years later, Wilder is still wishing for more time with the dark-skinned beauty he held in his arms for a weekend, and Lydia is still searching for a man worthy enough to be called "Master."
At Oasis headquarters, they're in the business of making dreams come true. Any wish they agree to fulfill means making conditions perfect for soul mates to connect. So when their new wish coordinator is perfect in every way but one--she's never had her deepest desires fulfilled--the management at Oasis requires her to make a wish. Only Lydia doesn't want to risk her heart. So she makes a partial wish. She wants to serve a Dom without the complications of a romantic relationship.
Wilder Burke, son of the Oasis founders, is just the man for the job. Years of accumulated misunderstandings means he must settle for the little bit she's willing to give. But when Lydia pushes him too far and he violates the terms of their agreement, he knows he's lost her for good.
Will Wilder fight for Lydia, or will he let fate tear them apart once more?
Listen to an excerpt read aloud by Master Mike. Splicing by TechNick.
From USA Today: Michele writes with such vivid style that she lifts the reader into the story to participate in the delicious, wicked fantasy.
From Manic Readers Reviews: Richer and deeper than the previous in the Safe Word series Wanting Wilder packs a wallop. The BDSM was heavily bondage and quite beautiful, the descriptions of Wilder's skills will have many women and men swooning. I also have to confess I would have awarded even another star for the ending discussion about discipline and punishment...This one scores high on the BDSM Realmeter, with plausible scenes and real feelings. Of course, Oasis is just a fantasy but a girl can dream!
Bottom Line: Like good wine Zurlo has aged into her writing well. I'm giving this my top recommendation to my friends who enjoy a good BDSM romance and definitely will enjoy seeing them go wild for Wilder!
From Two Lips Reviews: Ms. Zurlo brilliantly juxtaposes the past events with the present moment so that Wilder and Lydia can let go of the past and realize they are soul mates. If you love novels with plenty of sizzling BDSM action, complex characters and a rockin’ plotline, pick up Wanting Wilder today.
From Under the Covers Book Blog: Readers get to see how perfect a connection between Dom and sub can be... This tale transcended the stereotype by capturing very authentic and complex emotions. It’s easy to understand Lydia’s motivations and fears. Wilder comes on strong and makes those of us who are submissive at heart just melt. Or catch fire. The scenes that play out are hot.
From The Romance Reviews: Michele Zurlo made the characters in WANTING WILDER so engaging...WANTING WILDER is a definite hit for me. The story, the characters, and the romance struck the perfect chord and had me glued from beginning to end. Michele Zurlo has me addicted to these Safe Word: Oasis books.
