About The Book
A captivating new standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster. When the Dark Knights at Bayside and the cast of Bayside Summers collide, sparks fly, and trouble—or maybe love—is not far behind.
Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds. If you think bikers are all the same, you haven’t met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. Their stories are told in the same loving, passionate voice readers have come to adore from Melissa. Some of the Wickeds’ love stories will be hilariously fun, others will tear at your heartstrings with injections of humor, but they will all leave you wishing you could climb between the pages and join them!
In USA Today Bestseller A LITTLE BIT WICKED…
What do a cocky biker and a businesswoman who has sworn off dating bad boys have in common? According to Chloe Mallery, not much. But she couldn’t be more wrong…
Justin came into the Wicked family after a harsh upbringing by a thieving father. He’s gone through a lot to become a true Wicked, and he’s made them proud. Now he’s ready to show the woman he loves exactly what type of man he is. But Chloe has worked hard to move past her difficult upbringing, and she’s wary of getting involved with a man who looks like he’s walked right out of it. When tragedy strikes, will their trying pasts draw them together, or will Justin’s protective nature be too much for Chloe’s independent heart to accept?
I will be honest in that this won’t be a full-length review, I have quite a migraine building but I wanted to share my thoughts on this book with you. I would like to mention that this book wasn’t exactly what I was hoping for which is why it’s a four-star but I still had quite a blast with this one. I just didn’t find myself fully engaged as I normally am with this author and her books. I am not sure if it was just the setup of the story that just didn’t quite work out for me or not. So it did take a while for me to be fully engaged within the story. I was interested in the story and seeing how this would be all adapted and seeing these characters really come together. We have our main couple which is Justin and Chloe. Justin is a bad boy biker who is flirty and has been trying to get Chloe to take him seriously. But seriously has a past that warns her off from anyone that could be a bad boy or appears to be. We see how hard Justin has to work to get under Chloe’s skin and wear down her resistance. There is strong chemistry between them, but Justin knows he just needs to be patient. And when that moment happens when she does let down her guard and trust that Justin won’t hurt or betray her, was such a beautifully captured moment. The way that Justin and Chloe learn each other forms those intimate bonds that go deeper than friendship, and also face some struggles along the way and come through on top with flying colors was such a journey to see. This book had me in TEARS though so just fair warning, Melissa Foster works her intensity in this story, especially in the latter half. I am so eager to get more of this family and all the sibling antics and the teasers we received for future books.
Overall I found A Little Bit Wicked to be a sassy, light yet edgy romance that worked its way into my heart and delivered in the range of emotions from crying buckets of tears to laughing hysterically. A TRUE GRITTY GEM TO MARVEL IN!

Overall Rating of the Book
Simmering—soft warm touches and light intimacy
Warm- a medium level of sexual tension, a balance of sexual and emotional intimacy, lighter on the details in the sexual moments.
Steamin’ up the room -the sexual content is more explicit in the language and tone, heavier amount of sexual scenes.
Blazing fire to the building-The prime focus is the sex scenes, scorching hot, and could burn one. Less focus on the emotional intimacy to the relationship.
