A gripping, heart-pounding romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy about a former FBI agent who will do anything it takes to protect his ex, or risk losing her for good...
Asher Sullivan was once Remy Brennan's entire world--until he broke her heart into a million pieces. So when Asher crashes her wedding, Remy is certain he's come to claim her. To make her his again. Instead, it turns out Remy's groom is a con man scheming for her inheritance. Now all she's left with is an empty bank account, a serious case of lust for her gorgeous ex...and a duffel bag of cold, hard cash that might just fix all her problems.
Detective Asher Sullivan has always protected Remy. So when dangerous criminals start threatening her, Asher's most primitive instincts take over. Sticking by Remy's side means Asher is finally able to make amends for leaving her all those years ago. And soon they're giving in to their wicked, insatiable need. But just as Asher gets his second chance, a secret Remy is keeping could rip her away from him...forever.
Second chance romance, small town, ruined wedding: Wicked Sinner by Stacey Kennedy delivers all of it. Remy has been hurt so much throughout her life. Asher caused the biggest hurt of all when he left. However, his return also brings about the ruining of her wedding when he objects. But not for the reason Remy was hoping…
Remy is such a quirky character. She was raised by her grandmother who taught her all about potions and cleansing spells and other hippy-dippy stuff. Remy wanted to open her own “new age” shop, but she need her inheritance to do it. Remy has great “girl squad” to support her and I love that.
Its easy to hate Asher for what he did. He bailed on Remy with no excuse. Then when her life got even harder, he still wasn’t there. Now that he is back, he wants to be her friend. I kinda wanted to throat punch him for being a tool. He is now a local cop and the one to figure out that Remy’s soon to be husband isn’t who he says he is. He has this level of guilt that is not quite understandable. If he really is sorry, why doesn’t he TALK to Remy about it? Instead he lets her ignore him for 4 years! He didn’t just come back to town and ruin her wedding-he had been back for years!
I struggled at times with the story because I didn’t really believe in the Chemistry between Remy and Asher. Heat? Yeah sure. But actual feelings? Meh. And the added suspense was good, but abrupt and not really fleshed out enough to make it believable.
