WICKED FOR YOU is the tenth book in the Wicked Lovers series. The thing I loved about this series was that it integrated some suspense along with the more erotic side. The action definitely added something extra to the stories but I also think that as the series goes on, it’s getting harder and harder to come up with realistic situations that the author can put her characters in.
Mystery Mullins yearns for the man who once saved her from her dangerous kidnappers. Now, years later, she still isn’t able to forget Axel Dillon. Despite the flourishing career she has for herself in, she disguises herself and looks for Axel in a bar, propositioning him like she has always dreamed of.
Axel doesn’t remember her but after a night of unforgettable passion, he’s starting to wonder where he may know her from. The whole premise of this story is a little far fetched for my liking. The fact that Axel doesn’t even remember her, even with a disguise, makes me wonder how they can have such a connection on Mystery’s part that lasts years and years when he doesn’t even know who she is. It takes away some of the romance although I will say that I enjoyed Axel’s character for the most part.
Axel stays true to Shayla Black’s style. He’s intense, protective and hella sexy. He was definitely my favorite part of this book. Mystery, on the other hand, I was a little hot and cold over. She has some very admiring qualities about her but then sometimes I felt that her actions seemed to come out of nowhere sometimes and that really took me out of the story. I wasn’t 100% sold on her motivations but I understand that to make a story like this work, Mystery had to be the one to take initiative. It just wasn’t my favorite in the series.

Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
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!
