Series: Wicked Lovers #2
Published by Berkley Trade
Deke Trenton has a serious case of blueballs. The poor guy desperately wants Kimber, but he’s just too closed up for the kind of relationship that Kimber is looking for. I noticed a change in character for Deke in Decadent and the Deke were knew from Wicked Ties. The Decandent Deke is just too strung up, too caught up to keeping him pants zipped up that he becomes irritable and cranky and although, i completely understood how Kimber had that affect on him, I sort of missed the care-free and joking Deke from the first book. On the other hand, I enjoyed reading about the sexual tension between Kimber and Deke. It was very potent!
Now although I was a little sad to see Deke act like such an jerk sometimes, there was another jack off I hated even more than him and that was Jesse, the pansy-ass rockstar who assumes that all women love him. This guy could not have been more wrong! Kimber was stupid enough to fall for a loser like him and decided that she needed to brush up on her skills to live on the wild side with Jesse. What a stupid, stupid notion! But I came to like Kimber in the end, even if she was foolish enough to fall for someone like Jesse. My favourite parts of the book is even Deke goes off and calls Jesse a bunch of hilarious names, such as Mr. MMM-bop and Lance Bass, LOL! God, I love Deke!
But nevertheless, that decision brought her to Deke and Luc. Now I didn’t think Decadent was as good as Wicked Ties, but it was still one of the better ménage books I’ve read. I actually felt something for the character regardless if it was love or hate.
I really liked Luc. I thought he was such a sweetheart and it was a great contrast to Deke’s weird hot-one-second-and-cold-the-other attitude. The three of them together was HAWT! Black knows what she’s doing, that’s for sure!
I also have to mention that this series is probably my favourite erotica romance series to date. I love the contrast in characters. I love the heroines and their unsure ways. And I love how they are able to come to grips with who they are as a person as they fall in love with someone for the first time.
“You keep calling and upsetting my woman, and I’m going to break every fucking bone in your body, you pansy-ass falsetto son of a bitch.”
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
