One Wild Night- EPISODE 1 in the first season of the Forever Wild Serial. (This is a six part series with one book releasing every 3 weeks)

One Wild Night Can Change Everything

Valerie Wilder doesn’t do serious relationships. She also doesn’t usually wake up in Vegas next to a male stripper…

A male stripper who happens to be her new husband.

A quickie divorce seems like the answer, but the Nevada legal system doesn’t think so. When her new husband suggests flying back to Chicago with Valerie she accepts, wondering if one night in Vegas could turn into something much more.


One Wild Night is the first episode in a six part serial novel and I really enjoyed it. Valerie is Melanie’s sister and we meet her in The Only One. I really liked her a lot so I was excited that she was getting her own story. This first episode really gives us an idea of who Valerie is and I liked getting to know her more.

Valerie is super self-conscious and has some self-esteem issues. She is a curvier girl and this has always made her feel like she wasn’t good enough. She feels like the woman that men just want to sleep with but don’t want to be seen with. Because of this, she has never really had a serious relationship. I think she just doesn’t give herself enough credit and she allows men to use her for the physical stuff because she doesn’t feel worthy of anymore. I think Valerie is funny, smart and deserves so much more.

Wes is sex incarnate and when Valerie meets him at a “hottest abs” contest, the sparks fly. Mix alcohol, insane sexual chemistry and bad ideas and what happens? You end up married in Vegas. I was dying laughing when Valerie woke up and realized Wes was her husband. I wasn’t sold on Wes, though, and I’m still not sure about him. He’s a musician on his way to LA to make it big and he’s working as a stripper in Vegas and getting married was his idea. It seems like he thought Valerie was a big marketing exec in Chicago and he seemed a bit disappointed when he found out she’s just a low-level worker starting out. This gave me the gold digger vibe and I kind of wanted to punch him in the face. However, he grew on me towards the end because he definitely seemed to genuinely have affection for Valerie.

What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas right? Not when you can’t get a divorce in Vegas. It would seem that Valerie has run out of luck and this just seems to fit perfectly with how her life is going. However, I think it may turn out to be a good thing for her. The sexual chemistry between these two is HAWT and there is definitely some steam there. I really like Magan’s writing and she doesn’t disappoint in this one. There is still a lot of development left to this story by since this is a serial novel, I don’t feel like I can really judge that yet since obviously full development isn’t complete yet. However, this episode was a really good start and I was left wanting more by the end.
