Synopsis: 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 a life all his own. He doesn't do relationships, he doesn't care what anyone thinks of him, and he doesn't live up to anyone's expectations but his own.
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.
Review: 4 Stars - Angeline Kace has been a favorite indie author of mine since I read her first title (YA) Descended By Blood. As soon as I heard she was working on a “New Adult” title I was so excited that I could barely contain myself. Wicked Thing has all that makes a great book un-put-down-able.
So how about I talk a little bit about the two main characters’ – Carmyn and Dallas. Carmyn is extremely guarded due to her mother’s past faults. When she finds her fiancé cheating on her, her issues with trust are broken yet again. She’s out to try things a different way, one without relationships and only one night stands. She thought she had a plan and when those are smashed beyond recognition she has no idea how she’s going to move past this and get her life plan back on track. This is when Dallas enters her life.
Dallas does what he wants when he wants to. He lives by his own set of rules and isn’t the type for relationships. He’s the guy that all the girls want – good looks, tattoo’s, rides a motorcycle and cocky. The perfect bad boy and the perfect guy to fit exactly what Carmyn is looking for.
The thing about Carmyn is that she’s the girl all the guys want, but she doesn’t come across as being full of herself. She’s in a sorority, which, ugh… some of those girls were pretty horrible, which is one thing I couldn’t understand, I mean she’s so different from so many of these girls!
And Dallas, one of the things I loved about him the most was he’s an artist and reading this part of him was almost mesmerizing because just when you think you as a reader know the bad boy that he is, it’s things like this that make you realize that you don’t know him as well as you think do you. That really no one does and it makes him different and endearing.
The relationship between Carmyn and Dallas might have started somewhat quick, but that wasn’t the true beginning of these two for me. That came a bit later and then watching it all progress and how they both questioned their budding feelings, how they navigated through these new feelings and emotions and changes they were going through was one of the best parts or the story.
In the end my high hopes for another amazing novel from Kace were met and she’s written another set of characters that I love. The story was fantastic and I couldn’t put it down, reading this title in one sitting. One of the things I love and look forward to with Kace is her writing. Another is her memorable characters. With those two things combined I know I’m going to get one heck of a read. Add in the fantastic plots and she’s hit a home run, which is a great way to describe Wicked Thing making this title one I highly recommend. Fans of great “New Adult” contemporary titles should pick this one up and fall in love with the latest bad boy, Dallas. Read, swoon and enjoy!
