What a way to start a new series !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! HOLY SHIT !!!!!!!!!!!!
So check out what our team is saying about Becoming A Vincent by C.M. Owens

What a way to start a new series and absolutely have me dissolving into fits of laughter. This book is brilliant, insanely funny. A breath of fresh air. An instant fav and top rom com read of this year.

An unconventional small town called Tomahawk where they live by their own rules and get a little bit no a lotta bit crazy. The storyline is so completely different from the usual Romantic Comedies I have read and I loved that about this book. The characters will make you laugh, the storyline will keep you wanting more. I don't even know what else to say about this book other then I FLOVED IT. I have already read it twice and will probably read it anytime I am wanting a good laugh, some hot men and just something fun.

I absolutely can't wait for more from this series. C.M. Owens always writes such diverse books. She is a go to author for me.

Wild One Tip #72: Know the brand of crazy you’re dealing with. It could save your balls. Or your vagina lips.

In the small Washington town called Tomahawk you don’t have to only worry about the wild animals that lurk in the woods. You have to keep your eyes out for those that they call the Wild Ones.

CM Owens is one of my go to authors for when I am looking for a book that is going to keep me entertained and laughing from beginning to end. And Becoming a Vincent does not let me down. This book had me laughing right off the bat. In fact it was so entertaining that I want to find a town like Tomahawk and move there so that I can have this kind of entertainment in real life. The chemistry between Lilah and Benson was one of the things that also made this book one that can keep you enthralled in their story. The antics that the rest of the Vincent’s throw into the mix just lets you know just why they are called the Wild Ones.

There wasn’t only one thing that I can say was my favorite part. This is one of those books that I can say is going to be hands down of my favorite books that has everything that I want to find in a book. The antics that are part of the Wild Ones, in this book being the Vincent’s is something that makes me impatient for the next part

to be released.

Wild One Tip #327: Always watch your back. Or at least have someone crazy enough to watch it for you.

CM Owens has done it again with Becoming a Vincent. There hasn’t been a book yet that I haven’t enjoyed by her. She has a way to make you want more and more of her characters. And with Lilah and Benson there story has only made me want more of the Wild Ones, and I personally can’t wait to get the next part to see what other crazy shenanigans there can be. This is another book that is being added to my re-read list, and will be one that I will be reading again and again in the near future. ~ Terri

I want to be a Wild One too!

I want to be a wild one too! An amazing book about Lilah Vincent, one of the wild ones who has been best friends with Benson for the past 3 years. She starts to have feelings for Benson, and when a certain challenge is finally over she realizes that she in fact sees him as more than just friends. Benson has been biding his time, waiting to make his move. Will they both get together or will the craziness of her family run him off? This is a laugh out loud book, with a little love and a large side of outright crazy. I love this new series and can't wait for the next installment. ~ Dawne

Who wouldn't want to be a Wild One!

Another witty and original book by CM Owens! What I loved about this story is that the main characters, Lilah and Benson, were friends for 3 years before they realized their feelings went deeper than just friendship. Lilah took a bit longer than Benson but once she knew, she just went for him. Lilah is sassy, funny, and doesn't take crap from anyone. The women from her town, Tomahawk, are scared of her brand of crazy so they know not to touch what is hers which leads to several humorous scenes when the the single ladies thought Benson was available. Benson was sort of a recluse when he moved to this small lake town 9 years before but he was welcomed by the Vincent Family with the beard challenge and didn't want to leave. Looking forward to the next book in this series! ~ Alexandra

This book deserves more than 5 stars!

Let me just start out by saying...GREATEST BOOK EVER! This uproariously funny book had me clutching my sides, gasping for air, and wiping my tears from the sheer joy it brought me! The shenanigans that played out throughout this story truly made me wish this place existed and I lived there! I want to be A Wild One! I want that crazy family, those insane neighbors, and the town to be mine! We always claim book boyfriends (BTW...I want Benson too) but can we claim the rest? This place is mine...It's my new happy place! Dream a little dream and take me there with you!

I LOL'ed so much with this book. It's an insta fave

I'll make my rambling quick...

I adored this book. I had to revise all my excited cuss words. This book was EVERYTHING. Each character was spectacular. The storyline unique, exciting, hilarious.

I haven't read a Rom-Com quite like this one, well, EVER. Read it, read it, read it.. that's all I can say. I'm highly recommend it. I think I'll go restart it because I am not ready to say goodbye to The Wild One's, especially Lilah, guys, I think I've got a girl crush (if I could insert emojis it would be the ones with the heart eyes). This story wasn't only funny, it was sweet, hot, sexy and cute. I repeat, I Floved it.

Benson is just perfect and totally drool worthy. ~ Yericka

Seriously what can I say other than, I really think I belong in one of those 4 corners, like for real people.

Dear lawd, Benson you sexy beast beard and all. What a bunch of crazy, but very funny group of people. Once again, I think I'd blend it beautifully, if I may say so 😂😂😂. Lilah, I think you'll all love her LMFAO, that's if you love strong, smart, and funny chicks. ~ Maria

This lady never fails to amaze me! Her books are just comedy gold

This lady never fails to amaze me! Her books are just comedy gold. She makes me snort in laughter and pee myself (serious). I have never and doubt i ever will read a 4 star book from her. Every single book is incredible.

This book is one of the best rom coms around. I will never, ever look at a beard the same way again. I want to be a wild one dammit! Their life is simple but yet satisfying. They make their own entertainment and boy is fun.

If you want a book that makes you laugh, this is the book for you!! ~ Katy

The Best Kinda Crazy

Fairly certain my stomach still hurts from how much this book made me laugh. It is light-hearted, charming, and oh so crazy. It is hard not to fall in love with the main lass Lilah and her obnoxious brothers. The family dynamics in this story is fascinating and utterly hilarious. SO basically

Do you enjoy shenanigans?

How about crazy family dynamics?

Men getting paintballs to the nads?

If you answered yes to all of these questions..GET THIS BOOK NOW!!!! ~ Samantha W

Wildly entertaining!

In absolute love with this 1st book in C.m. Owens newest series, The Wild Ones!

Easily one of the top rom coms. You never know what craziness is going to happen next! I want to live in Tomahawk, Washington and experience the wild! Lilah and Benson are perfect but there really are no characters that I didn't fall in love with especially Lilah's crazy brothers, Killian and Hale! I laughed so much while reading! Cannot wait for the next one! C.m. you never cease to amaze with your crazy imagination!!! ~ Jennifer

Moving to Tomahawk

Admittedly, I'm a huge fan of this author's books. Normally, I keep up with news from her but I've been so busy, I didn't even know this book was being released. So, what a surprise it was to find out it was released!

I loved everything about this book and you might be thinking well, it's because you love the author so much, nope. It's a GREAT book! It's funny, it's charming, it's heartwarming. All the characters from the leads to the townsfolk are hilarious and full of depth.

This book makes me think that small town living is the only life to live. Now, to find my own Tomahawk! ~ Letty

Because it's Tomahawk!

I absolutely love love love this book!! From the very first chapter to the very end I was hooked! I laughed, I laughed harder, my heart broke, I was sad and then I couldn't help the smile that was plastered on my face. Who to start with first?? Benson! Oh, I'm in love with Benson. Was from the very beginning because, well... beard! Haha. Lilah? She's my spirit animal. I love her heart and I love her in-you-face attitude! Those two definitely compliment each other. Killian and Hale? I'm SO looking forward to their books. As well as Liam! He definitely caught and held my attention, I'm hooked with him. Aunt Penny, Bill and Benson's family is just the right amount of crazy! I can't wait for more, this is definitely one of my favorite reads!!

Welcome to Tomahawk!! ~ Krista

Who doesn't want to be a little bit crazy.

I want to be a crazy, after reading this fantastically funny book by C.M. Owens I know I definitely want to be a crazy. I loved this book so much with its wit, sarcasm, funniness and all round craziness.

It was a great storyline explaining the four corners of the lake and having a set of crazies in each corner and the rules they have like not being in the same place as other crazies etc. In this book we are introduced to Lilah, who as a Vincent is a crazy with her two brothers and they are triplets. She has a best friend called Benson who has been there for 9 years, known her for 6 years, been her best friend for 3 and loved her for 1. This book made me laugh and giggle at some of the things they get up to like a water cannon, pipe bombs and paintball from the other crazies. Her aunt wants her to settle down so she keeps bringing men back to introduce her to her niece.

Then there is a beard challenge that has been running for 9 years and the first to cut it has to swim the lake from one side to the other. With everything in this book and the way it was set up I can't wait until the next book comes out and I am sure it's will be of the same brilliant writing as this one. I voluntarily reviewed this book as an advanced blogger book. ~ Rachel

Because WATER Canon!

Becoming a Vincent is the exact kind of book you would think of when thinking of Rom-Com. With Laugh-out-loud moments and enough drama to keep it going, there is so much more to The Wild Ones than you will ever know. To Know them is to know laughter.

Lilah Vincent, oh my god how to describe Lilah, there just aren't any words. She is a bad ass wild one, but is the low man on the crazy pole. Her and her brothers are a sight for sore eyes because they have such a hilarious dynamic. I love that they are so together. The pranks – perfection! I love that they play like that. The Love- completely there. Mess with one and you mess with them all!

Benson Nolans, mystery man! His family visits once a year and no one ever sees them. No one knows what he does for a living. It takes a special kind of crazy to get feuding brothers to talk again, and it looks like Tomahawk, specializes in that brand.

And hello WATER CANON!!!

I am so happy that I picked this up. I have come to expect tears rolling down my face from laughter anytime C.M Owens strings words together. Her timing is perfect when it comes to the jokes and her characters are amazingly real! Well done C.m.. Well done! ~ Amanda

Crazy as a daisy

The answer to everything is "This is Tomahawk" and no one questions it. C.M. Owens has done it again! A book that is outrageous and funny. It is adventurous yet comedic. It has everything you have come to love from C.M.'s novels.

Crazy is one step below insane. Lilah is crazy wild. Benson is, well, borderline. Fear the beards? Mountain men. See doesn't make sense but yet it does. Loved every twist and turn.

What will happen next? This is Tomahawk! ~ Angela L

Rating 5 Stars


OMG what a book! This is absolutely hilarious and a definite must read!! If there is anything you do today, please make sure that you get this book!

Oh wow is Lilah amazing. She is brilliant with an amazing sense of humour and takes no ones rubbish. And Benson has to be one of my favourite book boyfriends without a doubt. Together they are awesome and a definite power couple.

This books is so much more that I expected. It was full of fun and I genuinely don't think I have read a funnier book ever!

Another 5 star read! #HeiswithLilah #Beardsaresexy ~ Emma

This was such a fun, crazy, wild ride. This is the beginning of a great new series that I can't wait to read more of.

I laughed so much in this story. I swooned and I absolutely loved the heart in this writing and the characters. It kept me entertained and definitely made me want more.

I don't want to give away any story points, so I will just say you need to pick up this book. It is an adorable, light, fun read and you will love it just as I do. ~ Melissa P

What a fantastic way to start off a new series ! I've been living off minimal sleep because I have not wanted to put the book down. It's laugh out loud, sweet, silly rom com and it sucks you in from the first page. CAN'T WAIT FOR THE REST OF THE SERIES. It's gonna be a wild ride and I know I am going to enjoy it. ~ Rebecca

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…
