The Wicked Series (Book 2)
There were three men in this world I thought I could trust and two of them had just betrayed me. Everything I’d thought I’d known about my life, about the people I loved, all of it was gone. I found myself staring at a pack of lies with no idea just how deep they went.
When twenty-six year-old Shae Lockwood is widowed after a horrible accident, she thinks that things can’t get any worse. The one person who is there for her through it all is her late husband’s best friend, Jasper Whitehall. Kind and compassionate, Jasper is exactly what she needs…until she discovers that Jasper is hiding more than one dark secret.
Don’t miss the second installment from best-selling author M.S. Parker’s erotic Wicked suspense series.
A Wicked Lie (Book 1)
M. S. Parker is a USA Today Bestselling author and the author of the Erotic Romance series, Club Privè and Chasing Perfection. Living in Southern California, she enjoys sitting by the pool with her laptop writing on her next spicy romance. Growing up all she wanted to be was a dancer, actor or author. So far only the latter has come true but M. S. Parker hasn’t retired her dancing shoes just yet. She is still waiting for the call for her to appear on Dancing With The Stars. When M. S. isn’t writing, she can usually be found reading- oops, scratch that! She is always writing.
This series is like a freaking onion – there are so many layers that you need to peel away to get towards the center and find the truth of Shae Lockwood’s love life.
Shae is trying to move forward and is learning to cope with shocking reality surrounding the death of her husband, Allen. She is struggling through the legal battle with Allen’s family, mysterious threats and learning how to run their vineyard. Through it all, Jasper has been her friend and companion in grief. However, in the second book their relationship changes. It develops into something more and it felt like I could finally sigh in relief for Shae.
That feeling did not last long.
Because M.S. Parker hates Shae and is determined to put her through all kinds of hell. Although it sucks for her – it makes for crazy, entertaining reading. This book’s plot is seriously awesome and I devoured A Wicked Kiss in one sitting. I was on the edge of my seat, waiting for the next moment of passion or danger. (The scene in the closet!!!!)
I didn’t think after the conclusion the first book, A Wicked Lie, that the deception or drama could get any crazier and then I finished A Wicked Kiss. Sweet Jesus. I still don’t think I’ve picked up my jaw up off the ground. My inner romantic is determined that Shae finds some peace and happiness because it refuses to believe there is any legitimacy to all that I fear about some characters. Even though I have a few doubts (well planted seeds M.S), I will accept nothing less than a happily ever after.
Overall, this book left me feeling desperate to get the final installment next month and find out the truth.
A Wicked Kiss is not a standalone – you need to read A Wicked Lie first to understand all that is going on in the second installment. I highly recommend you get caught up on this highly erotic suspense series today – then you will understand why I think it is a must read.
