Wicked White Series
I love this cover and that was the main reason I chose to give the book a try. Only after I started reading the story more, I thought I’d be great to check out the author and to my surprise, it was none other than the fantastic Michelle A. Valentine. I love her Black Falcon Series and that’s why I knew that Wicked Love would make for an amazing read, as well. And I wasn’t wrong. For such a short read, it’s really sweet but also sad and heartfelt. It’s definitely a story about personal growth and about what all you have to go through to become someone better.
This story is basically about a new start in life. A city girl becomes a small town girl, a man who had it all, lost it all and a boy who dreamed big, turned big. But everything may not be as it seems. Someone who lost all might have just found his biggest treasure and someone who won might have lost something precious, sometihng he will never get back.
So, Avery…I admit that at the beginning I wasn’t a huge fan of her character, since she came off as this rich spoiled brat that needed to grow up fast but at the end I came to really like her. She goes through a lot but in the end I felt like that made her stronger and wiser. She knew when to forgive and to see the bigger picture, not just for herself but also for the people she loved.
And as for Tyler, man, he sure made a mess. He started off as this sweet, carring boyfriend material and I really liked him. But then he goes and does something so stupid, I just can’t even… I get his reasoning and why he was feeling the way he did, specially since we get his POV but that move near the end, nah. That put him straight into the asshole box for me. Sorry (but not really)… Luckily he sees the mistake he made and tries to fix it but for me it was just a little too late.
The big plus of this story are definitely the secondary characters. I loved them, especially Avery’s gnadma and the little bundle of joy. She was sooo adorable, I just couldn’t get enough of her. I hope some of the characters get their own stories, I would absolutelly read them!
All in all, Wicked Love wasn’t a bad read but it wasn’t one of my favourites that’s for sure. If you like this series or if just simply like the blurb, then go for it. Maybe you’ll really enjoy it. 🙂
