I just started typing everything that went through my head when writing my review of Wicked. Then, I had to go back and take out all the spoilers—there were quite a few, so you can enjoy this story as much as I did.
Charlotte has had some “deviant” desires as she calls them. She’s had these urges and inclinations that she was sometimes ashamed of. A friend suggests she try Nexus, so she could see for herself that her sexual desires weren’t abnormal at all.
Here’s where it becomes a little tougher to tell you this story without spoiling it.
While under the tutelage of Isaac (love him!), she learns to embrace all her desires and proclivities. She also learns everything that’s involved with being a submissive. You know Isaac doesn’t pull and punches, and he takes his BDSM very seriously. Charlotte meets Edward through mutual friends, and there’s definitely an attraction between them. Charlotte tries to focus on her submissive lessons instead of the gorgeous Dom that seems to always have his eye on her. As Edward is undergoing his Dom training, his path crosses with Charlotte’s submissive training, and the sparks really fly. Charlotte is a sexual submissive, but outside the bedroom—and Nexus—she takes control of everything and makes no excuses for it. Edward is a natural Dom, but he’s willing to make allowances in his pursuit of Charlotte. I fell in love with Edward almost as quickly as I did Isaac. They have some similar qualities that I found endearing, and intimidating—which was kinda hot!
Lainie Suzanne knows how to write a hot D/s story, and this one I swear is a little hotter. You root for Charlotte and Edward, but you want to spank them both for some of their stubbornness.
You get to catch up with the rest of the Nexus gang you’ve come to know and love, and meet a few new folks who I hope to see more of in the future.
I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 5 stars.
We are first introduced the couple in Nexus (book 1 of the series) but it isn’t until now that we really get to know them. My interest was immediately piqued when Charlotte meets Katherine whilst she is leading Edward around Club Nexus on a leash. The idea of a Domme (or female Alpha) excited and titillated me. In Wicked we get to see the real people behind the leather and collars.
Charlotte has become my new favorite leading lady, (Sorry Tessa from the Stone Society). In the first chapter I read the words “How do I explain something I don’t understand myself? I have no words to describe the depravity and contradictory elements of my desires.” I did not just read these words—I took them in, mulled them over and realized that the author, Lainie Suzanne, had just described the very thoughts rolling around in my head. From that moment on, Charlotte became the heroine of all heroines. From that moment on, she became me and every other woman I know—of a certain age—that has started to rethink the ways she views herself and her sexuality. I tip my hat to Ms. Suzanne and her ability to once again tap into the psyche of her characters and make them REAL.
In my reviews I generally give a synopsis of the story, but this time I am simply going to say you MUST READ THIS BOOK! I don’t want to give away any of the delectable details that will keep you turning the pages, albeit with one hand😉. Wicked has so many surprises, that even as a longtime fan of the series, I was even caught in the web. If the Nexus series is new to you, please hurry order the previous three books, Nexus, Soleil and Deceit just so you can get to WICKED. You and your SO will definitely Thank me later!
I, without hesitation, give WICKED 5 stars and, say thanks to Lainie Suzanne for all of the “feels” this book gave me.
**I was provided a gift copy of this book for an honest review, but I also have an e-copy on pre-order and will be placing my order for a signed paperback ASAP.
With Wicked we get the backstory of how Charlotte and Edward met and became the dynamic duo. Alongside that we get to see and meet the younger versions of the Doms we've come to know and love. Reading about events that have been talked about in the three previous book, but now getting details and seeing them persee in real time.
Lainie also brings us updates on our favorite couples. We get to see a different side of Isaac in one scene that left me breathless.
Wicked shows the powerful emotion of love. I was awed at the writing and feelings Lainie put into the story. There were a few times I had to stop reading and just admire the beauty of the scene, the adoration between the characters.
The sex, oh goodness. Wicked definitely lives up to it's name and the hype. Lainie holds nothing back when it comes to being able to turn on the reader. Multiple O's are in your future. Just when you've come down from your high she'll bring you right back to the peak and push you over so deliciously. If you've never been a wonton person, prepare yourself to become one now.
Wicked is a marvelous addition to the Nexus series. The pleasure, turmoil, and sensations Lainie brings into the story are exquisite. Everything about Wicked is supurb.
