Wicked Ever After (Wicked & Devoted #2) by Shayla Black

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Shayla Black does not disappoint! This is the conclusion to the One-Mile and Brea saga and it is quite delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book of this duet and this second tome is just as good. Lots of passion, suspense, and a few heart-breaking moments weave a wonderfully wicked story.

There is plenty of drama for Brea and her “medical condition” – but the best part is that she has grown into quite an assertive darling. (She was a little prissy the first time around). Also, it was much more meaningful having read Cutter’s book (Devoted to Pleasure) as these timelines overlap and we are now getting the “other side” of the story from Brea’s perspective. (I didn’t really “like” her in that book – too selfish – but she really wasn’t now was she?) Her father’s perspective was also much better than I thought it would be – that was quite refreshing.

One-Mile continues with his smitten-ness of Brea without apology – even though she mistakes his initial need for space – for her protection. He gets mixed up with that nasty Mexican cartel again – which keeps you on the edge as to when that guy is going to show up again for his revenge. That wrapped up a little too conveniently, just to pop up yet again at the end.

I just love this couple and I am so happy for their “Wicked ever After!”

Wicked Ever After consolidates several of Ms. Black’s Devoted and Wicked series storylines and sets up some new adventures going forward. I don’t know how Shayla keeps all of these timelines together – she must have one hell of a whiteboard in her office. I definitely recommend this book – but only after you read the first one – Wicked as Sin.
