My Copy: Ebook for Review from Author
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.
Angeline Kace as become a well loved author for The BookWhisperer. Since my first experience with Descended by Blood; I have made it a point to read everything from this particular author. I was excited to discover her up and coming new young adult romance. This was much of what I have come to love in the supernatural series, and I was glad to have had the wonderful chance to review it for my blog. I have to critic well necessary, so while I did thoroughly enjoy this story I noticed a few more critic moments than with any other Kace novels. The intensity of romance with any of her stories was a much anticipated component of this novel. Although, while I would feel every twist and turn of the story there were a few moments that the situation felt cliche or for lack of a better word corny. For example, I was loving the intimacy of the beach moment, but when it was twist up with the Dirty Dancing lift this just seems to steer the moment off course. I felt that these moments tremendously took away from the strength of this deep and devoted love story. Kace also seems to occasionally build the anticipated climax up so high, but when the conclusion unfolds I feel that it is brisk, and cut short. I experienced this in Wicked Thing with the Dallas and Carmyn reunion. Overlooking these minor details this is a wonderful romance, and I would definitely recommend this along with all of Kace’s other titles. She is a talented author that I would be on the lookout for in years to come.
