I am sad to say I think I am done with the Wicked Lovers series. I have read most of them, but not all because frankly I haven’t really been all that into the storyline. Falling in Deeper left me feeling blah about everything. While there is dominance, there really isn’t a ton of BDSM, which is perfectly fine.

I really didn’t know Lily Taylor coming into the story. Maybe if I had read the last book I would have known her better. Who knows? She is kind of quirky, but on the run after changing her name. She kind of got too comfortable with her situation and now that is coming to bite her in the ass. A meeting with a handsome man makes her heart patter, but also her feet want to start running.

Stone was an interesting concept for a hero. He is an ex-con who really didn’t do the most horrible of crimes, but a crime none the less. He has a get out of jail early card, but only if he can get Lily to testify against a known criminal they can’t convict. He’s about to run for office and the FBI want him taken down. The screws are in Stone to get Lily in line and he can get out of jail. So he sets up a meeting with Lily, otherwise known as Sweet Pea, and the sparks fly.

So this was an instant love kind of story. Stone instantly falls for Lily, but when he is given a deadline on his deal, he pushes Lily into hiding as he works to get her secrets. They both fall in love way to fast in a very short period of time. Days we are talking here. Not only is Stone trying to protect her, but he’s trying to get into her heart so she will love him when he as to break it to her he needs her to stay out of jail.

The race is one to get Lily’s secrets, find the man who they are after when he goes into hiding, and figure out what’s going down as people from her past start showing up dead. Lily does some really stupid things in this book. You know the put yourself in danger in spite of you life just to make points with some men. Very close to her detriment. Silly.

The action is hard and fast at then end, with the middle pages being a test in trust between a man and woman. Overall, I felt like it lacked any kind of reality. There are some surprises if you don’t figure it out ahead of time and some heartfelt actions, but to fall in love so fast when you life is on the line. Just doesn’t work for me. And silly females who don’t know when they have it good should be shot. Seriously, she thinks she has it all figured out. So nope, I can’t say I enjoyed this. The author writes very good, but the story led me to places I just couldn’t accept.

This series is hit or miss for me and sometimes hit and miss all in the same book. 😉 Sorry, it was meh, but sometimes a book/series just isn’t a good match. On to the next one…. 🙂

I think I am done with these books. Each one sounds good but once I get into them I am left feeling blah.

“And silly females who don’t know when they have it good should be shot.”

lol – Tell us how you really feel. I read one of her other books that she co-authored, but wasn’t all that impressed.

She was so stupid I almost wanted her to be shot. I get tired of authors writing women to have no common sense. Someone is trying to kill her and they have gotten close. Have some common sense. LOL Yep, I tell it like it is. I have read quite of few of her books with Lexi Blake (also known as Sophia Oak). I think I am done with this series.

I’ve only read one of her books and it was just ok for me. Sorry this series just isn’t doing it for ya.

I have read a few. I met her a con one time and really when I like an author I so want to try their books. I have read about 5 or 6 of this series and can say I just don’t want to go back to again.

She felt hurt once she figured out Stone had a deal to get out jail. I get that, but to cut off your nose in spite of your face? Yeah, she deserved to get shot even though she didn’t.

Sorry that this one wasn’t better for you. I am rarely a fan of insta love and it is disappointing that it is found in so many books lately. I hope your next read is better. Great review!

I can do insta love sometimes, but I just didn’t feel it with this one. I am making my way through the Lost in Oblivion series. On the last books so I have been happy lately.

Sorry this fell flat for you. I can handle insta-love if the author makes me connect and feel it.

Insa-love doesn’t bother me too much, but I have to believe there is a connection. This one didn’t convince me.
