Luc's entire future is planned out - but there is one very sexy obstacle in his path: Alyssa, a strip club owner with whom Luc recently shared one night of wild abandon. It left Luc terrified by his loss of self-control - and Alyssa desperate for more. But Luc is not the only man desperate to have Alyssa.... And that's just one of her secrets - secrets as dark and mysterious and delicious as her fantasies.

"Spicy and fun, this romp between the sheets will thrill erotica and mystery fans alike." (Romantic Times)
Ms. Black has toned down some of the sex in this book and has given the characters more substance. The more she talks about Morgan's brothers, the more I would like to hear their stories. But this is Luc's story and if you have not listened or read the first 2 books, you will not understand some of the by-play between those characters. But there are some interesting plot twist in this book and it is more like a love story. Luc does let his temper get in the way and almost costs him what he really wants in more ways then 1. Alyssa is a strong willed woman and I find that I liked her more then I thought I would. While these 2 didn't seem like a suitable match in the begining, it turns out that Alyssa is just the woman Luc needs. You will enjoy finding out about both of their storys.
Very good story line, Im addicted!
The moment of realization when Luke realized his lies tore apart the relationship
Story moved along at a good pace
I did both but this book wasn't as good as her book Wicked
Still worth the read if you like erotica
Say something about yourself!
But, still worth the read. This is a very erotic story, just like the previous 2. I like that the female character was strong but feminine. She was a bit too ... openly sexual(?) for me, but it makes for a good erotic story.
The male character was just a bit too tortured and determined to resist a relationship all the while continuing to sleep with her. It smacked of objectification.
Also, while I complain of her 'open sexuality', he takes it too far. Constantly thinking about how she must be sleeping with other people.
If this review seems disjointed, it probably is. There was a lot of flip flopping and frustration and stringing along in the book. It was still good, but some of the more negative things could have been handled better.
I generally really like the Wicked Lovers series, but this one just wasn't for me. Luc, the main guy, was a real jerk throughout the whole book. Alyssa, the girl, was manipulative and trashy (no matter how much the author tried to make her otherwise). There was way too much rape (past rape, remembered rape, attempted rape, etc.) and way too many bad guys. Just when you think the book is finally almost over, you realize there is yet another stalker. There wasn't anything I particularly liked about this book.
This was everything a book should be. It was HOTTTT, Action, Sexy Men and of course LOVE!!!!

When I started listening to Delicious last summer, I really liked the character of Alyssa - smart, spunky and strong . I got sidetracked by another series and just now rediscovered this book in my library.
Well, the 2nd time around, I found Alyssa (club owner) even more engrossing and Tyler (her bouncer) to be a total sweetheart. However, Luc left me cold. In book 2 of this series, Luc tried to use his cousin Deke and Kimber to create the family he couldn't have by himself. So not my idea of a romantic hero.
In Delicious, Luc to ready to marry a woman he doesn't love because he wants kids and his wife to be a stay-at-home mother. What a sexist! I notice he doesn't offer to give up HIS career to change diapers and drive carpool. Luc assumes that Alyssa can't be sexy, independent and a loving mother.
Sadly, it took the entire book for Luc to get his head out of his ass and quit judging Alyssa for her former occupation (stripper). Ironically, Luc & Alyssa first met when she was the entertainment at bachelor party where Luc was partying. So it was okay for Luc to watch a stripper, but something wrong with a woman who is a stripper - what a double standard!
While Shayla Black is an incredibly gift writer, I would like to see her create more enlightened male characters and less cavemen. I'll bet there are women like me who think secure, mature, and caring man are much sexier than dominating jerks.
I love to read and listen to erotica all types and paranormal vamps and shifters
This is one of my favs in the series its got it all hot sex a few stalkes and lots of misunderstandings
I've been an avid reader since I was a child. I love different types of writing styles and I am never afraid to try new authors.
I don't know if it was just the narrator or the story line but I could not get into this book at all. The narrator made me cringe throughout the first 3 hours which is all I could get through before I had to stop listening.
