She begged him to rescue his enemy from death. In exchange, he demanded her body…
Pierce “One-Mile” Walker has always kept his heart under wraps and his head behind his sniper’s scope. Nothing about buttoned-up Brea Bell should appeal to him. But after a single glance at the pretty preacher’s daughter, he doesn’t care that his past is less than shiny, that he gets paid to end lives…or that she’s his teammate’s woman. He'll do whatever it takes to steal her heart.
Brea has always been a dutiful daughter and a good girl…until she meets the dangerous warrior. He’s everything she shouldn’t want, especially after her best friend introduces her to his fellow operative as his girlfriend—to protect her from Pierce. But he’s a forbidden temptation she’s finding impossible to resist.
Then fate strikes, forcing Brea to beg Pierce to help solve a crisis. But his skills come at a price. When her innocent flirtations run headlong into his obsession, they cross the line into a passion so fiery she can’t say no. Soon, his past rears its head and a vendetta calls his name in a mission gone horribly wrong. Will he survive to fight his way back to the woman who claimed his soul?
I was a little worried about diving in to Wicked As Sin as I had not read many books in either The Wicked Lovers or Devoted Lovers series. However since this is book one in her latest Wicked & Devoted series, I decided to dive in and I needn’t have worried. This book has a lot going on and although not a particularly long book, Ms.Black certainly packed a lot in to it. Please be aware that this book ends in a cliff hanger, so you have been warned.
Wicked as Sin is a hot story about Pierce “One-Mile” Walker and Brea Bell, a woman who could not be more different that Pierce if she tried.
This was a journey of self discovery for both Pierce and Brea, particularly Brea as she fought her feelings of guilt as well as dealing with Cutter, her best friend who kept putting himself between “One Mile” and Brea. I must admit Cutter really frustrated me at times, I just wanted him to back off and let the relationship develop.
I loved how all in Pierce was once he realized the feelings he had for Brea were real and the tenderness and love they showed to one another was heartwarming.
There were times that I was on the edge of my seat as the action heated up and there are some parts which were emotional and hard to read as Pierce’s job as a sniper comes in to play. All in all this was a captivating read with strong writing and characters that you cannot help but become invested in. I cannot wait for the conclusion in Wicked Ever After to Pierce and Brea’s story.
