Becoming a Vincent (The Wild Ones #1) by C.M. Owens ~ Review

Becoming a Vincent (The Wild Ones #1) by C.M. Owens

When you live in a place where “turbo speed” internet is a slight step above dial-up, men carry on nine-year beard-growing challenges out of stubborn pride, and your brothers do things like nail all your panties to the outside of your cabin just for funsies, you tend to be a little crazy. You can call it a "locational" hazard, if you will.

That’s Tomahawk for you.

We rank people based on just how crazy they are. And the four craziest families in town are called the Wild Ones.
I’m on the bottom tier of those, so technically I’m not as crazy as the other Wild Ones. In fact, if it wasn’t for my brothers and their endless antics, I wouldn’t be considered a Wild One at all. Ahem. Sure. We’ll go with that.

Anyway, I have a best friend who endures it all with me. Benson Nolans is my one, constant favorite person.
Without him, I’d probably go really crazy, and not the fun kind. It’d be ridiculous, after three years of a flawless friendship, to mess that all up by falling for him.

I mean, even if we did get a little too close one night, it’d be reckless endangerment. Even if we did suddenly feel the chemistry that’s always been there and stop toeing the line, it’d be a foolish risk to take.

It’d be stupid to start hoping a really fun, but completely irrational, night with zero inhibitions might accidentally happen.
Really stupid…


I stumbled upon this book on Goodreads, and after reading reviews I decided to give this one a chance. It honestly just sounded like a great time. And, you know, it was. It was one of those books that's kind of...out ways, but it was a fun read for sure.

From page one, this was easy to get into. It was entertaining learning about this community and how they interact and how they have their challenges. There was a lot to learn about, because they're so strange, but it was all interesting enough that I didn't mind.

I loved learning about the characters and their relationships. Lilah was funny and Benson was sweet. And I got a big kick out of Lilah's brothers. Them with Lilah was a crazy way. Benson's family was...a lot. But it was fun seeing them react to the crazy that is Tomahawk.

As a whole, I feel like the best way to describe this book is a weird way.

I will say that the plot was kind of flimsy. It's a loosely structured romance, mostly held up by random shenanigans that you have to dispense belief in order to enjoy. I had a smile on my face a vast majority of my time reading it all, though.

Overall, Becoming a Vincent is so tough to describe. It's strange, but so fun. And the romance is sweet. I'm pretty sure sometime, when I really need something to make me smile, I'll pick up book 2.

4 stars - Strange, but fun & sweet!
