Wild Things (Hardback)Laura Kay (author)
'Perfectly observed and brilliantly funny, I adored it' EMMA HUGHES
TWO BEST FRIENDS. ONE HUGE CRUSH. A YEAR THAT COULD CHANGE EVERYTHING. . .
El Evans is stuck in a dead-end job, hopelessly in unrequited love with her best friend, Ray, and in need of a major life change.
After a New Year's resolution to 'Be More Wild', El is soon in possession of one (small) tattoo, one (bad) hangover and memories of one (very disappointing) threesome. . . but she's trying and surely it can only get better?
So when a plan is hatched for El, Ray and their two closest friends - newly heartbroken Will and Instagram darling Jamie - to ditch the big city and move out to a ramshackle house in the middle of the English countryside, El can hardly say no. This is her big chance for a fresh start, the perfect wild thing.
But living in close proximity to the love of your life without letting on isn't as easy as El might think. . .
WILL A YEAR OF WILD THINGS TURN THESE FRIENDS INTO LOVERS?
