This review may contain spoilers, so fair warning, upon reading the review.
Wicked Ever After is a story that continues right after Wicked As Sin and I have to say that I really enjoyed seeing these two together and seeing more depths to their relationship. I highly recommend that you read the first book “Wicked as Sin” before you read this book because I am telling you that you will be LOST because there are many things that happen in book one that you need to be aware of before reading this one. And while I enjoyed this one I didn’t quite enjoy this one as much as I did the first book. I think that is mostly because there was more going on outside of the relationship and not as much “romance focus” as what we got in the first book and I wanted to see more page time with Pierce and Brea.
Wicked Ever After begins with our hero Pierce, who has had to leave his girl to fight off the enemy, an enemy that wants to destroy everything he cares about and most especially Brea. And in order to protect her and everyone else they care about, he must go on this mission, and it’s one he probably won’t come back from. But he has an enemy, one that will stop at nothing to destroy him and all he holds dear. He is a protector, and won’t bring a firestorm to Brea and her family’s doorstep if he can put a stop to it. But things don’t go quite as planned, he will be betrayed, and he will see the depths of evil to his enemy. But what keeps him going is his Brea. But Brea will be his guiding strength in the worst of times, and when the time comes, he will fight for her and the future he has risked his life for.
Wicked Ever After is a story that is so action-packed and I loved seeing how this author handled this all. I was so intrigued to see where this author would take this couple and what they would accomplish together. There is a lot that happens outside of the relationship, but seeing what both of them are willing to sacrifice for each other was so beautiful. I really liked seeing them learn to adapt to each other, change and grow both individually and together as a couple. Their story is beautiful and seeing them defy what society says to find a way to be together. Truly an inspiring read of acceptance, forgiveness, healing and a fierce love.
