Wicked Thing is an quick, entertaining, and heartwarming story about two people with wounds from the past who begin to heal though each other. It was so easy to read, and I enjoyed it the whole way through. Everything about it gets a solid 4 stars for me–the writing, the characters, the dialogue... it was all really good and fun to read.

The characters all had their own personality and were all really likable. Carmyn had a sad past and was set in her own ways, which was understandab

Carmyn Rafferty witnessed the aftermath of her mother's affair. She learned at a young age not to trust anyone. Especially not your spouse. So she's planned. She's planned every detail of her life: who her husband will be, what their careers will be, what their lives will be like. All to avoid the pain of infidelity.

Dallas Brown lives according to his own terms. He doesn't do relationships, he doesn't care what anyone thinks of him, and he doesn't live up to anyone's expectations.

4.5 stars for deep and sexy Dallas!! This book showed up on a blog and I just figured why not?

Dallas and Carmyn have similar backgrounds. Growing up both of their home lives were tarnished by cheating which resulted in their parents divorcing. They have both closed themselves off, until they find each other.

Dallas will not do girlfriends. Casual sex, yes. He's not even as assbag, he's very honest and doesn't play head games. His fathers cheating produced another child, and his father picked his

I have read a whole bunch of NA titles recently. This one left me.....

All of you that know me well, know that my favorite, favorite book of all time is what?????

That's right Beautiful Disaster. Well this book was not exactly like it, but, there were some similarities and I LOVED IT!!!!!

Camryn's boyfriend was a real tool and she has had a troubled past. When he cheats on her, she goes into a downward spiral, locks herself in her room for days, stops eating and pretty much just sleeps her life

This was such a fun, sweet and sexy read!!! Dallas and Carmyn were made for one another and is was delightful watching their relationship grow.
Ava, Carmyn's BFF, was hilarious and their friendship was part of the reason I loved this book. There were some very serious issues in each of the MC's lives. They both had to learn how to trust and forgive. Luckily, for me, it was not angst overload and that helped make it such a fantastic read!
Also, dual POVs! I cannot express

To see my full review:

This novel blew me away! Angelina Kace is a master storyteller, and from the very beginning I was sucked into this phenomenal story with it’s true-to-life characters and situations. I love that it’s told in alternating perspectives, giving readers first hand glimpses into the mind of both Carmyn and Dallas as they struggle to make sense of their lives, their needs, and their desires. It’s a beautifully written tale that focuses on for

LOvedd this book!!
I love the romance that gets two broken people to fix each other up!
I'm also a sucker for the "reformed" bad boy plot!
And I like this college atmosphere!
I wasn't expecting much from this book and i surprised that I actually enjoyed that much! It reminds me a little of one of my fave books this year Beautiful Broken Rules

My first time really watching Dirty Dancing is with Carmyn Rafferty—the woman I pulled a Patrick Swayze on before I even knew what it really was.

Well, that wasn't so bad. It started out really HOT, simmered way down in the middle but it turned out to be pretty sweet in the end. Now I feel like watching Dirty Dancing again.

I love, love, LOVE this book! Wicked Thing is not what I expected. It is so much BETTER. Really, I was kind of expect some Young adult angst story but what I got was a fantastic romance story with the perfect journey of love, heartache, and discovery leading to my favorite...HEA. Their story reads like a great roller coaster ride and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I was hooked from the first page reading Wicked Thing in one sitting and I'm sure so will you.

I've already read this book twice so I think it's safe to say that I enjoyed it. OK, maybe enjoyed it isn't the right word. I LOVED it and I devoured it in one sitting, both times! .
Carmyn has her whole future planned out thinking that as long as she follows course she'll have control over how her life pans out. Suddenly a cheating boyfriend veers everything she knows off course. Choosing to try to move on and start planning a newer future she heads out for a night of fun with her best friend Av

The cover of this book really caught my attention. Both of them really gorgeous! From the wicked gleam of their eyes, I was instantly curious what it's all about!

As I begun to read, I can say that the cover justified the characters. Dallas and Carmyn , as the author described and as I imagined, really looked that way. ( and I'm really glad! )

I love the chemistry between them. I just knew it right from their first kiss...touch.. that these two are really meant to be. I thought Dallas is going

I freaking LOVED this book!

The characters were awesome. I especially loved, Ava. She was so much fun and the perfect best friend. The fountain scene was so funny and she only got better and better as the book went on. As did the gorgeous Carmyn. She was sweet and I liked her immediately. I wanted to punch Becker for what he did to her, and later for what he did to Dallas. He was a real scumbag, and even though it showed Dallas' violent side, I cheered him on when he clocked Becker in defence of

Wicked Thing is a beautiful story about two people who should not be together, but end up creating a beautiful love story. Angeline Kace must have secretly gone to Hogwarts, because she had created magic with Wicked Thing. The tension and attraction between Carmyn and Dallas is well written and believable, where in other novels it sometimes seems a little forced.

Carmyn is a responsible college student who due to her mother’ betrayal has become a bit of a control freak. Dallas is a playboy who h

I have been a fan of Angeline Kace's since her very first book. I couldn't wait to get a hold of this and sink my teeth into it and it didn't disappoint!

Camryn Rafferty is the girl we'd all love to hate but can't help but like. She's the girl that the guys think is the hot tamale but yet doesn't see herself that way. She's just come out of long relationship that she saw going somewhere with her 'it' guy only to find out that he liked to have some 'indiscretions' on the side. She's devastated of

Initially I was excited to read this book because I wanted to read a friends-with-benefits storyline. A guy and girl having fun and slowly getting closer unbeknownst to themselves. I love that subtlety. But this was never really a friends-with-benefits story. From almost the beginning Dallas was infatuated with Carmyn and they acted like a couple pretty early on. They got really close quickly in the story, so I was disappointed the author did that. I thought, "finally, a guy will gradua

No angst overload, just lots of steam, swooning, sighing, with this fast, sweet, sexy and fun read. Dallas and Carmyn are sorta perfect for one another. I loved how he swept right in to her life and change all of her carefully set plans.

It’s told in dual POV so you get to see inside both of the characters heads. The writing is easy to read and the story flows together really well. I look forward to more from this author in the NA genre. The typical angst is there but it wasn’t to much that the

Dallas and Carmyn! I just love this couple! So cute ... hot and down to earth! My heart broke for Dallas in a million pieces when his father died. How horrible for him! To never see him again and only to find out just how much his father missed him!!! Ugg!!! Carmyn ... she really pissed me off when she assumed how shit was! Communication y'all!!!

Almost like a rocker book.. minus the instruments.. well some of them..:)) and how lucky he has Camryn dropped in his lap. Camryn cautious one.. had a bit of a rocky home life as most do with divorced parents due to affairs.. just had it happen to her and now she's just at a stand still.. until she goes out one night on a whim. ITs a sensual college romp.. not over heated, but just enough to dive in the characters. I really enjoyed Camryn and loved his intensity. Not a long read rather quick and ...more

such a lovely book ! Carmyn & Dallas were so cute together! i read this book in one sitting ;) i loved their Friendship ! Both of them were not looking for love, but eventually they didn't control their feelings towards each other .. It was fun to watch from the sideline .. I think that towards the end were unnecessary parts that could be solved without all the drama .. except for that, I enjoyed the book very much :)

4.5 stars! I wasn't really expecting this one, just grabbed it because it was next in line on my iPad. I loved it! I thought the story was great, the writing was great and the story played out so well. While this concept of good girl/bad boy in college isn't completely original, I felt such a connection to Carmyn and Dallas. Was a great short read!

I had a problem with the two faces of Dallas. He starts the book one way and with nothing to really change that, he becomes a different guy. While the rest of the story was nice, I just couldn't get past that.

Wicked Thing by Angeline Kace is straight-up New Adult Contemporary Romance and good gracious, I loved it. That is all.


Wicked Thing is the story of Dallas Brown and Carmyn Rafferty - how they came to be together and eventually stayed together. They are one of those college-going couples that ended up together after Carmyn broke up with her boyfriend, and they sort-of became exclusive. They never meant

I have commitment issues with books that start to bore me. So, DNF at about 45%.
The story started off okay, but stayed there. Never crossing the line to something unique and exciting. But also never teetering over into a terrible read. It was just mediocre and maybe I could've finished it, but like I said, commitment issues. Well, and the book was boring and felt overdone.

A word that reminds you of what you used to have, a smell that reminds you of your dreams, a flashed memory in your mind's eye that reminds you of the betrayal. Each time it's a new injury.
