How can a virgin seeking happily ever after with a hot pop star who has a penchant for threesomes win her fantasy man? Kimber Edgington desperately needs a plan to convince Jesse McCall, who's been her friend and secret crush since they spent a summer together as teenagers, that they are meant for each other. But all the tabloid stories about his sexual escapades make her feel oh so inadequate.
Determined to prove she's woman enough for Jesse, Kimber turns to bodyguard Deke Trenton for sexual education. Bold and brash, Deke warns Kimber that playing with him is playing with fire. But he can't bear to imagine the innocent beauty in someone else's arms. So Deke and his super sexy cousin, Luc, take Kimber under their wings and dangerously close to the edge of ecstasy. Though she's saved herself for Jesse, Kimber soon learns he's not the man adept at stroking her aching, endless need. That's Deke, and he can't resist when Kimber begs for more-and more.

"Hot sex scenes, a strong yet innocent heroine, two devastatingly sexy heroes and enough danger, intrigue and tragic pasts to keep the pages turning." (Romantic Times)
Ok I know everyone loves Shayla Black and don't get me wrong she is good. This is the second book in the series and I keep waiting for the hook to get me to love these books. If you want erotic sex scenes, then they are definitely a hit. I just don't fall in love with the characters. I think the narrator was lacking. I know that Kimber was to sound young but her voice just grated on me. I kept hoping that she would use the voice that she narrated the story with. How do you expect to really buy a ménage with someone who sounds about 15. Some of the storyline did not make sense and the timeline was off. If you are just looking for an easy listen that does not require you to think too much, or really buy into the story then this is a good choice. It took me several days to listen to and I was on a road trip and still did not pick it. As I said, it is not a bad book it just lacks a complicated plot and characters that you just fall in love with and cannot get enough. I am not sure if I will get the next book although Luke's story could be interesting. I think that is it with these books. There is just enough of a tease to keep you coming back for more but then when you do it is a bit of a letdown. So in the end I am on the fence about this book and I don’t know if it was worth my credit or not. I guess I am a tough critic.
The characters the stories and Lexi Mayard
Just read and listen the entires Wicked series. It is all memorable from start to finish.
She brings the characters alive in all four audios.
Both just listen and you wil agree.
When will the rest of Shayla Black's books go on audio?
I really enjoy the world of books! Narration just add layers to that world... don't u think? :)
Very good continuation of Wicked Ties. I loved the characters but I must say Deke's issue doesn't really make sense. It does, but it doesn't. I kinda feel like Black just needed to end the book so she came up with the lame reason for Deke's issue. Everything was on the same level as Wicked Ties up until that point. Still worth a good listen. Worth the credit. Just wait for your free credit. Don't buy this, use a free credit. Great listen though. Amazing smex! A little tooo amazing to be real if you ask me.
Along the 50 shades line, a good read, enjoyable and certainly hot. I enjoyed book one of the series much more, but this was a good follow up with characters introduced in the first novel.
I haven't "read" a book since 1998, just not interested....after the 50 Shades Trilogy, I have become an audio book addict! I am a very tough critic.
Hot, Wicked & Mysterious
The way you could just reach out and touch the characters.
Great story, a great continuation of Wicked Ties. I can't wait to hear more from Shayla Black!
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
At the TOP!!!! This Wicked Lovers Series is totally HOT. This book is mmmmm mmmmmm good.
I love them all, no way not too!!
She is awesome as always.
Yes, but that would be giving a very good part away and I would not want to do that.
I would just advise to get all three books in the series and listen to them!!!!!
let me start by saying i was shocked when i started reading this book, my public library offers the first book in the series for audio download. Based on this i didn't know this was erotica. When the story started i was blown away, the scenes were intense and the story over all was unexpected. i did enjoy the book. i would read more from this author.
Make no mistake between my personality and my attitude. My personality is who I am, my attitude depends on who you are.........
I found this one better than the first book. Characters interacted more with each other than rambling thought dialog.
