Review: Wicked Thing by Angeline Kace

New Adult Contemporary Romance
**Due to content, this book is not suitable for readers under the age of 18.**

Carmyn Rafferty witnessed the aftermath of her mother's affair. She learned at a young age not to trust anyone. Especially not your spouse. So she's planned. She's planned every detail of her life: who her husband will be, what their careers will be, what their lives will be like. All to avoid the pain of infidelity.

Dallas Brown lives according to his own terms. He doesn't do relationships, he doesn't care what anyone thinks of him, and he doesn't live up to anyone's expectations.

When Carmyn's fiancé cheats on her, it sends her into a whirlwind of one-night stands with the most infamous player on campus. She can't seem to stay away from this tough guy and his dangerous motorcycle. Everything about him is the complete opposite of who she'd planned to fall in love with: tattoos, dark stubble along his jawline, and hair that brushes his shoulders.

As Dallas and Carmyn begin to fall deeper and deeper into each other, they learn that love can truly be a wicked, wicked thing.

I love, love, LOVE this book! Wicked Thing is not what I expected. It is so much BETTER. Really, I was kind of expect some Young adult angst story but what I got was a fantastic romance story with the perfect journey of love, heartache, and discovery leading to my favorite…HEA. Their story reads like a great  roller coaster ride and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was hooked from the first page reading Wicked Thing in one sitting and I’m sure so will you.

Get ready ladies because here is you next book boyfriend. Meet Dallas! He’s sexy, hot tattooed and overall DELISH! *Pauses to sigh* Ok…I’m back. Really ladies he’s a bad boy but not a bad person. I love a guy with tats but then need to have meaning and each of Dallas’ do. My personal favorite is the shark (read the book to find out why). Carmyn (don’t you just love that spelling!) is the opposite of Dallas – A good girl with her life all planned out. That is until she catches her Mr. Right banging Ms. Skanky Wrong. Of course after being a good girl for so long she decides to be bad…with bad boy no-commitment Dallas. You can tell from the get go these two are perfect together. Everything about them screams couple and when they finally together…purr! What a ending!

Now for some no spoiler details. The sex scenes are perfectly written. Just enough details to keep it hot without being over the top smutty. The development of their relationship feels like a natural evolution without feeling rushed. The pacing of the whole story is very smooth. I love how the main characters are two beautiful souls each damaged from their shared childhood experiences. Each dealing with their pains in their own ways yet finding a way to over coming it and be together. Their journey is a beautiful that at times had my laughing out loud and other times sobbing. My only regret, you can only read a book for the first time once and I can’t experience this book again like I just did.

Author Angeline Kace (who is quite the sweety) has done a outstanding job creating this wonderful book. Now the tortuous wait for her next book has begun. Wicked Thing is most definitely a book worth reading and I have alreay started recommending it to all my friends.

One more thing…I absolutely LOVE the cover!

Excerpt

Dallas

“That’s it!” Randall says and points at me with both hands. “It’s Carmyn. That’s the reason why you wouldn’t go to the strip club. You’re whooped.”

I shake my head and laugh. “I am not.”

“Oh, yeah,” Howie adds. “Let me have a go at her, then.”

I force my face from becoming too serious. “I will kick your ass where you stand.”

“You are!” Nate says. “If she weren’t your sole plaything, you wouldn’t care if Howie tried to get her attention. But you do, so you are.”

“You clowns aren’t making sense anymore.”

“We’re making perfect sense. You’re the one who’s having a hard time following along. We invited you to the strip club. You said no. We come over here to find out why, and a little bit later, you start going off on Carmyn this and Carmyn that.” He’s drunk and animated with his hand gestures. “Bro, the last time you talked about a girl this much, it was your mom, the only other woman you love, so either you like to fuck your mom, or you’re falling for Carmyn.”
