He’s ruthless. She’s off-limits. But he’s just met his one weakness… Now nothing will stop him from making her his.
Pierce “One-Mile” Walker has always kept his heart under wraps and his head behind his sniper’s scope. Nothing about buttoned-up Brea Bell should appeal to him. But after a single glance at the pretty preacher’s daughter, he doesn’t care that his past is less than shiny, that he gets paid to end lives…or that she’s his teammate’s woman. He’ll do whatever it takes to steal her heart.
Brea has always been a dutiful daughter and a good girl…until she meets the dangerous warrior. He’s everything she shouldn’t want, especially after her best friend introduces her to his fellow operative as his girlfriend—to protect her from Pierce. But he’s a forbidden temptation she’s finding impossible to resist.
Then fate strikes, forcing Brea to beg Pierce to help solve a crisis. But his skills come at a price. When her innocent flirtations run headlong into his obsession, they cross the line into a passion so fiery she can’t say no. Soon, his past rears its head and a vendetta calls his name in a mission gone horribly wrong. Will he survive to fight his way back to the woman who claimed his soul?

Wicked As Sin is book 1 in the new Wicked & Devoted Series. Fortunately Shayla Black has written this book so that newbies to the Wicked Lovers and Devoted Lovers series will be able to start with this series. BTW I am a newbie to these 2 series. I have wanted to read them but felt I would be too far behind in either of those series.
This is Brea Bell and Pierce “One-Mile” Walker’s story. And what a story it was! Brea is a preacher’s daughter so she is a good girl. She probably shouldn’t get messed up with One-Mile! But she is drawn to him whether she should or not. One-Mile thinks she is in love with Cutter, her best friend and protector. He is very protective of her and he doesn’t want her to get involved with One-Mile but it is a little too late for that. There were a lot of misunderstandings and regret.
Wicked As Sin was suspenseful, sexy & full of hotness!
I knew I was coming to the ending and I knew there was going to be a cliffie. It still didn’t keep me from calling out NO!!!! But I may be the weird one here. It doesn’t bother me, much…. To have a cliffhanger. It just makes me very ready to get the rest of the story. Wicked As Sin is 5 star worthy!!! Loved it!!! Now bring on Wicked Ever After!
