He revels in Elyse’s love, their passion is all-consuming. She is his much-needed rock, but he is afraid she is too good for him and refuses to drag her in his darkness. He's so messed-up but he's trying his absolute best to be everything his girl needs him to be. I love how on the outside he's this larger-than-life billionaire tycoon but on the inside, he's just a man, broken and damaged, who wants to be loved, who wants hope. He is used to getting his own way, but he so afraid he will lose Elyse. He envies her strength, her selflessness and her compassion.
Elyse is a wonderful character, her love is unconditional. Quinn is her reason for living, her everything. But she knows that his self-destructing tendencies have to be dealt with. I really liked her strength of character, her ability to compromise and convince Quinn. The road to happiness may have been a bit bumpy for these two characters, but their happily-ever-after was utterly satisfying!
I’m in awe of Zara Cox, her stories and characters really get under my skin, so to say. I’m fascinated by complex characters and boy, did she deliver with Quinn Blackwood and Elyse Gilbert! And she sure does know how to turn up the heat! Highly recommended if you enjoy dark, steamy and romantic love stories that leave you breathless!

Wicked S.O.B. takes place a year later from the events of Beautiful Liar, where Quinn and Elyse meet and fell for one another. Now that their lives are on track and their personal vendettas and pornstar lives are over, Quinn and Elyse have time to do the things they wanted to do, and move on with their life as a couple. Well at least that what Elyse is trying to do. Quinn, without plotting his vengeance against his father, now seems to have too much free time and can’t seem to cope with a normal life. His anger and frustration seems to keep boiling up and when Elyse has to leave town for a weekend, he destroys their apartment. He just wants to keep Elyse safe and next to him, but when is someone truly safe with the life they had before still tries to pull them back?
I liked Wicked S.O.B., the novella lets us see into the future of the couple of the first book of this series, and how they try to create a life after what they went through in the Beautiful Liar. I think that this type of novella makes the reader remember that even after a Happy Ever After end, the characters still have a long way to go to happiness, and it might have bumps in the way that they need to work on.
Because this is a continuation to their first story, I do advise the readers to first read Beautiful Liar, as most of the story line talks about past events, and it can make it hard to follow along. But if you already read the previous books you will like this novella, some characters from the other books make some cameos and others are also mention.
I liked that the author made her characters build up the trust they have on each other and let them experience the consequences of not talking about their problems.
Like the other books in this series, Wicked S.O.B. has it’s sexy and erotic scenes, that are much as a living characters as the main characters are. Throughout the novella, we see Quinn and Elyse use sex as a type of outlet for the pen up energy that they have. To them it seems to work as a temporary solution while they work on their communication issues.
If you are a fan of Dark Desires series or of author Zara Cox, then I recommend you Wicked S.O.B. In this installment, we get to see the first couple of the series work to become a person for the other one, all while trying to stay safe from a mysterious figure who seems to be hunting them.
