Vicky is suffering from the pain of loss, betrayal and brutality. She was a shell roaming around numbing herself with strangers not to connect but to numb the pain.
When he saw her the connection was instant, but his vow kept him away.
When she saw him she saw through to his soul, but she was empty and a loner.
This book is powerful with topics both taboo and aggressive. What make this book special is the way they find each other and find what they need to heal one another.
Luc is still hiding from his past but he pushes on for her, praying that it doesn't result in the same tragedy of his past relationship with Alexis.
The love he share for Vicky is deeper and if he loses her he will lose it all.
I know I am being vague but to much can be given away sometimes in reviews and I want you go through that struggles these characters go through to become whole again for each other. The journey is well worth the tears and nail biting!
My feelings were torn in regards to this book. On one hand, it was extremely difficult to root for Luc after finding out what happened with his ex-wife. I didn't read the first two books before Wild Cards, so I had no clue what had transpired during Luc's drug and alcohol infused rage until it was mentioned during a therapy session. It was easy to like him in this book because he was so caring and honest. He was seeking help for all that had happened to make sure it would never occur again. I'm not sure if I could have given him a chance if I had read the others.
Vicky, on the other hand, has been through so much in so few years, that it was impossible not to root for her. Sure, the storyline was implausible in many ways, but I liked her enough to let that go. The chemistry and building of trust between Luc and Vicky is the main reason I liked this book.
I received a copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Luc is finally starting over in a new life. He's away from his mafia family, is successful in a legal job, and sober. This doesn't stop him from drowning in guilt and darkness however. He's done terrible things in the past that he can't take back. Vicki is on the road to self destruction by trying to bury her pain with sex parties. Her bad choices have started to become dangerous for her. When she goes to New York at her mother's last request, she meets Luc. They have an instant strong connection, but fight it. Will Luc and Vicki find healing or destroy each other?!
I read the first two books in the Twisted series, and I loathed Luc. R.C. Stephens brilliantly wrote a raw and gritty story that changed my feelings for him. Now I understand the real him, and fell in love. Character development is perfect, as I saw a completely different side to Luc, while watching he and Vicki heal through time. The storyline is well written, realistic, and flowed smoothly. I physically felt the two characters pain while cheering for their redemption. The twists had my heart racing, and didn't see a few of them coming. Wild Cards is a beautiful story of forgiveness and second chances so I HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
