Wicked Games Series
Published July 11th 2017
Genre: Contemporary Romance
In the Caribbean for his best friend’s wedding, ex special-ops officer and security expert Ryan McLean meets a beautiful woman in the hotel bar. Their connection is immediate and intense, and they spend a passionate night together with pleasure as their only goal.
But when Ryan wakes the following morning to discover the beautiful woman has vanished, along with millions worth of jewels from the safe of the Saudi prince staying in the suite next door, he realizes their meeting wasn’t accidental and becomes determined to find her.
A notorious thief known to authorities only as the Dragonfly, Mariana Lora has one final job to complete before she’s free from the oath that bound her to a life of crime, but the sexy-as-hell Marine she spent one explosive tropical night with is hot on her heels at every turn. She has to outwit him to stay out of jail, but fighting their magnetic attraction soon becomes a game neither one of them can resist.
When Mariana’s last job goes dangerously wrong and she needs Ryan’s help to survive, he has to decide if their game of cat and mouse is only a game, or if he can trust this beautiful thief with something no woman has ever stolen: his heart.
Wicked Intentions is action packed, sexy as sin, and sprinkled with humor. What a thrilling read!! It’s the perfect mix of action, adventure, espionage, grit, humor, and steam. It grabs the reader’s attention from the very beginning and doesn’t let up until the very end.
Here’s the breakdown:
Ryan meets Mariana while vacationing. He immediately reads her body language and deduces she’s not who she seems. Likewise, Mariana does the same with Ryan. It doesn’t matter that they both lie to one another because the instant attraction can’t be denied. Their passionate one night stand sets off a chain of events that are thrilling.
What I loved:
The main characters. Marianna is beautiful, strong, compassionate, and loyal. She’s the total package. Ryan is cocky, conceited, completely over the top, and an alpha-badass! His over the top antics were simultaneously sweet and crazy.
“That’s what heroes do baby, we save the motherfuckin’ day.”
He’s completely over the top and falls instantly for Mariana. I love sexy bad-boy alphas who take charge, so he’s definitely a favorite.
These two together are so much fun!! Mariana doesn’t take crap from Ryan and gives as good (or better) than she gets. The secondary characters are a motley crew of misfits that are closer than family. They’re funny and extremely inappropriate at times. I loved seeing Marianna integrate into the fold.
The storyline is brilliant. It blew me away! There were so many unexpected twists and turns. By the end, I had no idea what to expect. It’s not often I’m caught off guard, but this book took me by surprise.
The ending is fantastic! I won’t spoil it for you by telling you what happened, so go read the book. Recommended to fans of insta-love/lust, suspense, mystery, and action.

About WICKED BEAUTIFUL
Life coach and best-selling author Victoria Price has it all: a successful career, fabulous friends, a fantastic penthouse in Manhattan. What she doesn’t have—and doesn’t want—is a husband. Fifteen years ago her high school flame broke her heart so badly she swore she’d never love again. Now she makes millions teaching other women how to be just like her: a ruthless bitch.
Drop-dead sexy restauranteur and infamous playboy Parker Maxwell has only three rules for the women he dates: no questions about his past, no expectations for the future, and no spending the night. When he meets Victoria, however, he’s willing to break his own rules if it means sating the explosive desire she arouses in him. What he doesn’t know is that the alluring Victoria Price used to be the mousy Isabel Diaz, the girl he deflowered and dumped long ago.
Presented with a perfect opportunity for revenge, Victoria decides the game is on. But when her connection with Parker proves more than just skin deep, she has to make a choice: continue with her plan for payback, or risk her career, her reputation, and her heart by taking a second chance on love?
