 Tanya Rae’s Review:                                                                                                                                                                                                               5 STARS                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    I guess I am going to be the brave one and go ahead and post the 1st review! First off it seems like I have waited forever for Wicked to come out! Wicked is a Novella so it is a pretty fast book to read. Which I love because sometimes you just want a book to squeeze in before another book that you want to read comes out.

Lainie Suzanne I love this series that you have created! Wicked (The Nexus Series Book 4) may be my favorite book so far. But, then I might have said that with each of the books in this series…. I love, love, love Wicked!!! And, did I say the series too? 😉 Let me tell you Wicked is just plain out and out Hawt!!!

Patrick Donovan (of course you know who he is if you have read any of the other books in the Nexus Series) he introduces Charlotte Thomas (aka Charlie) to Edward Cree (but, they know each other because they work together, uh oh!) I can’t tell you more because I don’t do Spoilers and you need to read this book and this series as long as you like/love BDSM themed books.

The Nexus Series should be read in order: 1. Nexus 2. Soleil 3. Deceit 4. Wicked (this book)

I loved reading Wicked and I love how Lainie Suzanne writes (please don’t make me wait so long for the next one)!

Wicked was given to me as a complimentary copy for an honest review.                                                                                                                   ***********************************************************************************************************************************                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                Nikki K’s Review: 5 STARS                                                                                                                                                                                                       Charlotte and Edward’s story is finally here…YES!!! I have been waiting for this book for two years and it was worth the wait.

We are first introduced the couple in Nexus (book 1 of the series) but it isn’t until now that we really get to know them. My interest was immediately piqued when Charlotte meets Katherine whilst she is leading Edward around Club Nexus on a leash. The idea of a Domme (or female Alpha) excited and titillated me. In Wicked we get to see the real people behind the leather and collars.
Charlotte has become my new favorite leading lady, (Sorry Tessa from the Stone Society). In the first chapter I read the words “How do I explain something I don’t understand myself? I have no words to describe the depravity and contradictory elements of my desires.” I did not just read these words—I took them in, mulled them over and realized that the author, Lainie Suzanne, had just described the very thoughts rolling around in my head. From that moment on, Charlotte became the heroine of all heroines. From that moment on, she became me and every other woman I know—of a certain age—that has started to rethink the ways she views herself and her sexuality. I tip my hat to Ms. Suzanne and her ability to once again tap into the psyche of her characters and make them REAL.

In my reviews I generally give a synopsis of the story, but this time I am simply going to say you MUST READ THIS BOOK! I don’t want to give away any of the delectable details that will keep you turning the pages, albeit with one hand ;). Wicked has so many surprises, that even as a longtime fan of the series, I was even caught in the web. If the Nexus series is new to you, please hurry order the previous three books, Nexus, Soleil and Deceit just so you can get to WICKED. You and your SO will definitely Thank me later!

I, without hesitation, give WICKED 5 stars and, say thanks to Lainie Suzanne for all of the “feels” this book gave me.

**I was provided a gift copy of this book for an honest review, but I also have an e-copy on pre-order and will be placing my order for a signed paperback ASAP.

I’ve been anticipating this book seemingly forever, and let me tell you it was worth the wait!

I just started typing everything that went through my head when writing my review of Wicked.  Then, I had to go back and take out all the spoilers—there were quite a few, so you can enjoy this story as much as I did.

Charlotte has had some “deviant” desires as she calls them.  She’s had these urges and inclinations that she was sometimes ashamed of.  A friend suggests she try Nexus, so she could see for herself that her sexual desires weren’t abnormal at all.

Here’s where it becomes a little tougher to tell you this story without spoiling it.

While under the tutelage of Isaac (love him!), she learns to embrace all her desires and proclivities.  She also learns everything that’s involved with being a submissive.  You know Isaac doesn’t pull and punches, and he takes his BDSM very seriously.  Charlotte meets Edward through mutual friends, and there’s definitely an attraction between them.  Charlotte tries to focus on her submissive lessons instead of the gorgeous Dom that seems to always have his eye on her.  As Edward is undergoing his Dom training, his path crosses with Charlotte’s submissive training, and the sparks really fly.  Charlotte is a sexual submissive, but outside the bedroom—and Nexus—she takes control of everything and makes no excuses for it.  Edward is a natural Dom, but he’s willing to make allowances in his pursuit of Charlotte.  I fell in love with Edward almost as quickly as I did Isaac.  They have some similar qualities that I found endearing, and intimidating—which was kinda hot!

Lainie Suzanne knows how to write a hot D/s story, and this one I swear is a little hotter.  You root for Charlotte and Edward, but you want to spank them both for some of their stubbornness.

You get to catch up with the rest of the Nexus gang you’ve come to know and love, and meet a few new folks who I hope to see more of in the future.

I received this ARC for an honest review, and I give it 5 stars.

Another good book in this Nexus series. This is the story about Charlotte, the domme in the club. Having desires that many others in the lifestyle do not agree with, Charlotte felt like she couldn’t be herself. Working as a RN in the emergency room, she met Edward and was instantly attracted to him. Still not secure in who she was, Charlotte was still in training when Edward showed up to the club. Seeing that they are two peas in a pod, and that they both can be who they want to be with each other. But is that enough to satisfy Charlotte and make her happy in her own skin? Or will she deny herself what she truly makes her happy?

While I enjoyed the story of other characters, I felt like it took away from Charlotte and Edward. I wished there would have been more about them even with the updates of everyone else. It felt like everyone’s story and and not just Charlotte and Edward. I would still recommend this book to others. I took one break while reading this story. I am looking foward to reading more books from Lainie. 🙂
