This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
When seventeen-year-old Eloise Stone finds herself half way across the world, moving into her Uncle's pool house, she expects things to be ... awkward. She doesn't expect to come face-to-face with the boy from last summer. The boy that made her feel things she'd never felt before. But a year is a long time, and Lo isn’t the same girl she was then. Besides, they’re family now.
Maverick Prince acts as if he doesn’t remember her, treating Lo like nothing more than an annoying younger sister, and not in a ‘he cares’ way, just in a ‘he’s an arsehole’ way. One thing‘s for sure, he isn’t just dangerous for her sanity—he’s hazardous for her heart.
Lo thought moving to Wicked Bay was the worst of her problems, but as life begins to unravel around her, she’s going to find out it’s only the beginning…
Love the drama and angst!
One of my favorite things to read is good old fashioned high school drama! And this book has plenty of that. Add in some family secrets and some forbidden aspects and this books checks off most things on my list. I enjoyed the teases throughout the book about the things that happened in the past. Made it so that I wanted to keep reading to find out what the deal is. And although this book is technically a "Cliffhanger" it left off in a good place. It's not so terrible that you are going to die waiting, but there is just enough uncertainty that you wonder where it's all going to end up!
Full of turmoil and angst.
I knew from the first chapter this book was going to be turmoil. Lies, secrets, family, friends, and enemies, this story will take you on a wild ride. When tragedy strikes and Eloise and her dad move half way around the world she is torn. Leaving the past behind and looking to the future doesn't make her forget her sorrow. To her surprise a fleeting moment from her past is standing in the kitchen of the family home. As Eloise starts a new school she soon learns that Maverick and Kyle are the princes of the school and since she is family she is part of their group. Maverick is one who was hard to figure out. We have not found all of his secrets yet. I felt so much emotion for Eloise as she tries to figure out her life and fit in at school. On top of that she learns that her father has moved on. This was an emotional rollercoaster of a ride. As in true Ms. Cotton fashion it ramped up toward the end and leaves you wanting more. I can't wait to see what the future holds for Eloise and Maverick. I am sure it is not going to be an easy ride.
I voluntarily read an advanced copy of this book.
Love to be wicked ❤️
This was a totally wicked book!! I'm not normally for family love stories but this one has me intrigued beyond! Eloise has been transplanted to the states and her life has been turned upside down even more when she meets the one boy she never thought she'd see again. Maverick is an enigma, just when you think you know what he's gonna do he'll confuse you again. Despite it all I did love Maverick. I was completely taken over by this book. When I got to the end I totally got the title and even named LA Cotton a wicked person. 😊 She wrote this book with more in mind and I can't wait. I read book voluntarily for an honest review. Hope you love it. I did. Enjoy!!!
