Dallas Brown lives according to his own terms. He doesn't do relationships, he doesn't care what anyone thinks of him, and he doesn't live up to anyone's expectations.
When Carmyn's fiancé cheats on her, it sends her into a whirlwind of one-night stands with the most infamous player on campus. She can't seem to stay away from this tough guy and his dangerous motorcycle. Everything about him is the complete opposite of who she'd planned to fall in love with: tattoos, dark stubble along his jawline, and hair that brushes his shoulders.
As Dallas and Carmyn begin to fall deeper and deeper into each other, they learn that love can truly be a wicked, wicked thing.
Wicked Thing brings us the coupling of Carmyn and Dallas. Not a couple that is obvious, but that share a very similar past that allows one another to feel something a little deeper. For Carmyn, her life was all planned out. Career and marriage. All done. Everything selected, every path chosen. But all that crumbles when she finds her fiancé in bed with another woman.
Dallas was a man-whore. He never promised anything more than a night of great sex, but when Carmyn becomes single, the girl that always caught his eye is someone he isn’t willing to walk away from.
From the outside, Dallas is the bad boy who rides a bike and is inked. But as Carmyn gets closer to him she realizes that there is a lot more to him than what everyone sees. The unfortunate part, for Dallas, is that he just doesn’t fit into her perfect plan of the perfect life. Spending time with him in and out of his bed works, but looking any deeper into their feelings is just too much for her to take. Then it happens. The moment when she realizes it, but it might just be too late.
This was my first read from author Angeline Kace and I was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed this read. Often times you read a college age romance where the good girl falls for the bad boy and you just can’t help but compare it to EVERY OTHER book out there with this theme. But she did a fantastic job maintaining a very solid story line that had elements that really allowed this story to stand out.
I think what I loved most was that those parts that allowed this to stand out were understated, not in your face like: Look at me, I’m nothing like those other books!
But rather, it was in the background. You knew it was there and you knew that it played a major role in their story – but it wasn’t their story.
Dallas was surprisingly a great character. I was worried. At first I was holding back a little waiting for him to do something so unforgivable... but he was just this down right lovable character that had you feeling all the feels for. Even Carmyn who had her moments, was endearing. The author did a great job giving you both their pasts in such a way that it allowed you to understand their motives. It allowed you to give them a bit of understanding as you watched them navigate this new territory.
I would say that anyone who enjoys a great college age romance would love this book. I feel like I can say with confidence that you won’t feel like you read a recycled story and that this one will stand out for you in the many books in this particular genre.
Her friend, Ava, convinces her to let loose and try to break out of her shell. Carmyn does her homework a week before it's due, sits in the front of the class, etc. Girl needs to let loose just a little bit!
This ends up with Carmyn catching the attention of super hot man whore, Dallas Brown. Dallas comes with his own baggage since his father had cheated on his mother when he was a kid - and his father ended up leaving his mother for the other woman. As Carmyn's broken childhood has made her a fiercely driven woman who is on a straight path for perfection to avoid any issues that her mother fell to ; Dallas is the opposite. He decides that relationships are not worth any time, so he is a serial one-night stand guy.
So....in a typical story such as this; Man-whore ends up falling hard for the girl . Friendship blossoms and love is just around the corner.
No big plot twists. No major issues. There is one part of the book where they are determined to avoid each other and it's a bit frustrating (remember, they are young and in college), but it is over fairly quickly.
There are several (many!) very hot steamy sex scenes as well. They are definitely compatible, chemistry-wise.
There are side stories, but the main focus is definitely on Carmyn and Dallas.
I liked Carmyn and Dallas both - they are strong and independent and their characters stay true to themselves throughout most of the story. Neither perpetually runs away in fear from each other like some stories. I hate that.
The cover photo of this book is funny - they look WAY older than college students - that threw me for a loop.
Overall, this is an easy, fluffy story to read that has nice, decent characters that you hope for them to end up together. Neither H nor h are annoying (like a perpetual crier, whiner, running away, nor jumping to conclusions). It's pretty smooth sailing for both. Just one hiccup that resolves at the end.
No major angst. Some emotional struggling, but nothing major.
Easy to read.
Characters are decent - drink a lot , but they are in college, remember?
No major villains. the ex-fiancé is a tool, but not a villain.
Things wrap up really quickly at the end. Not where I thought it would go, but the author likes a HEA. ;-)
Enjoy this easy to read, simple story-romance, with some hot steam, likeable characters, and a HEA.
