I am a big fan of Addison Cole’s Sweet with Heat books but I have not tried one of her books when she writes as Melissa Foster before. Yikes, these are hot!
I do have to start this review with a TRIGGER WARNING: this book deals with suicide, assault and animal cruelty.
Justin Wicked looks like a bad boy biker but he has an emotional depth that Chloe Mallery needs to discover so she can trust him. She needs to put her bad experiences with men behind her and forget about her lost childhood. Justin has his own family tragedies to overcome including the suicide of his mother. He was adopted by a loving new family and is now a Dark Knight, part of a community of bikers that protect the vulnerable.
There is passion in abundance as Justin and Chloe come together (suggestive pun intended…). The writing and plot are definitely adult only and I would also advise not reading in the same room as kids as I’m sure my cheeks were blushing! The use of swear words was also a bit of a shock for me but I soon got used to it as it suited the characters 🙂
Apart from the sex, there is a huge plotline of love and loss which gives this book an emotional depth which is not suggested by the front cover (a great reason to follow the proverb and not judge a book by its cover).
There are a LOT of characters and I did feel a little overwhelmed to start with. I did enjoy catching up with some of the characters that have been central to the Sweet with Heat books that I have read (they are also in the hotter versions too which I haven’t read).
Overall, A Little Bit Wicked is quite a bit wicked and will leave you feeling hot and bothered as well as with a smile at the heartwarming love story.
A captivatingly funny and deeply emotional new standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. When the Dark Knights at Bayside and the cast of Bayside Summers collide, sparks fly, and trouble—or maybe love—is not far behind.
Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds. If you think bikers are all the same, you haven’t met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. Their stories are told in the same loving, passionate voice readers have come to adore from Melissa. Some of the Wickeds’ love stories will be hilariously fun, others will tear at your heartstrings with injections of humor, but they will all leave you wishing you could climb between the pages and join them!
In A LITTLE BIT WICKED…
What do a cocky biker and a businesswoman who has sworn off dating bad boys have in common? According to Chloe Mallery, not much.
Justin came into the Wicked family after a harsh upbringing by a thieving father. He’s gone through a lot to become a true Wicked, and he’s made them proud. Now he’s ready to show the woman he loves exactly what type of man he is. But Chloe Mallery has worked hard to move past her difficult upbringing, and she’s wary of getting involved with a man who looks like he’s walked right out of it. When tragedy strikes, will their trying pasts draw them together, or will Justin’s protective nature be too much for Chloe’s independent heart to accept?
