5.0 out of 5 stars Emotional and inspiring read!
Reviewed in the United States 🇺🇸 on October 17, 2022
I thought this was going to be a lighthearted read but this book surprised me. This was an emotional story filled with loss, grief, hope and love. Tank is book boyfriend material how he swooped in for Leah and the girls. I just loved how much their well-being mattered to him.

"I'd hold my breath if it meant Leah could breath."

Leah has lost her little brother and best friend. Coincidentally Tank was the one who tried to save him. Leah is trying to make it and not let the grief swallow her up whole. Tank and his extended family are constantly there for Leah and her girls. Tank knows the pain Leah is going through because he lost his younger sister too. As they begin to spend more time together their feelings start to grow. Tank realizes he has fallen in love with Leah and her girls. He wants to take care of them lessen her burden. This was a heavy book but it was done really well. I loved how all of Tank's family accepted Leah and her girls so easily. Great characters and a storyline that will definitely stick with me!

"You don't have to try to be sexy. It's innate. It's in your eyes, your smile, the way you roll your lower lip into your mouth. It's how you mother the girls and weather storms for them."

"I'm falling hard for you darlin', and every day those feelings get bigger."

Alright I'm going to start this review with a spoiler and a warning because I feel it's important to be prepared. 

No really, one or two won't do it people, Melissa has made sure the whole packet is needed.  
I became a blubbering, impossible to understand ugly cryer within the first few chapters and the emotional rollercoaster just kept going, even after I finished it.  
This book has stayed with me in the most beautiful way and is my "𝐓𝐨𝐩 𝐑𝐞𝐚𝐝 𝐅𝐨𝐫 𝟐𝟎𝟐𝟐" because it just won't let me forget it. 

If you've not read Tank & Leahs beautifully heartbreaking love story yet, you really need to.

4.5 stars

The Wicked Aftermath is book two of The Wickeds: Dark Knights at Bayside.

Shy and quiet Leah has been a mystery for Tank; always nervous around him, Leah seems almost afraid of Tank. What Tank doesn’t know is that Leah senses his deep sadness and it makes it hard for her to breath when she’s near him.

This story is filled with a mix of joy and grief. Tank and Leah are brought together through unexpected circumstances; add to this two adorable little girls and this story may have you reaching for the box of tissues. It certainly had been wiping my eyes very early on in the narrative.

I did enjoy this book and I look forward to the next one in the series.
