Edwin Allen Mercer
I want them all to read my words. And they do. Every last blood-stained sentence, they've read and praised me for. They love the gore and violence, the realness. And I get a sense of power with it all because I know a secret: the victims in my books—they’re real and have all died on my table. And maybe that’s why the last book had such awful reviews. Mur

A disturbing, psychological thriller like you've never read before!
Wicked Little Words will make your head spin! It's shocking and twisted story line will make you clutch your bed covers at night, and leave your heart a little darker for reading it.

I literally cannot believe what I just read. Throughout the entire book, I kept debating with myself on how I could possibly finish it. Because it's genre is so out of my norm to read, whether it being a romance or not. I'm not a dark book reader. Per

HOLY SHIIIIIT! Halimeeeee, this is your fault! OMG I'm so fucked up right now!

Ugh this book was sooo freaking sick & twisted but God help me, I loved it. :D

Ps. Dilek VT, Ilknur aka Iko and Bookylicious. Thank you very much for our BR! <3

My dear friends Bookylicious, Hülya, İlknur & me have done a buddy read of this book upon the recommendation of our dear friend Halime. At the end of our journey, our thoughts, feelings and thus - ratings have differed.

Here is what I think...

This is a dark and sick read. It is gritty and shocking.

Do not start to read it in the mistaken belief that this is a romantic suspense. (I myself made this mistake and there is no romance in it). It is a murder suspense story, a gory horror story. It is a

Let me start off by saying that I've read some pretty messed up books over the past few years. Some made me cringe, others left me with my mouth hanging open because of the absurdity, and the rest just had me questioning my sanity. Yes they were crazy and unconventional but if there's one thing you should know know about me, is that I LOVE crazy.

This book right here? Was FUCKING CRAZY mixed in with a crap ton of dimented!!!! I need liquor, bleach, and a therapist in

That. Ending!


Everything is nice and kind of predictable. You think you got the ending figured out (or at least a few possible endings). Then boom! The End!, and you wonder what the f*ck did I just read? where did that come from?


Now I know you must be wondering... is he crazy? I can see how you could think that. But here's the thing: aren't we all a bit crazy in our own way?

What a dark, disturbing, and gloriously twisted story this was! The synopsis drew me in, but I had NO clue what I was in for! I thought that reading a story about writers writing a story together would be straight-forward and maybe even slightly exciting, yet this book was morbid and fascinating from the very first page!

Edwin Allen Mercer has a well-crafted persona. He's the king of the book world and he's in high demand, but his latest book reviews have come back with lukewarm responses and he

OMG!!! Till the last 20 pages, I was so frustrated for choosing this book, I was planning to give it hardly three stars. I was also confused why the readers have written so much good reviews about this book! But then, yes you can sense what I’m saying “ I didn’t see it coming”!!!
Mostly I can predict this kind of twist because in real life I question every nook and crannies. And guess what, the writer pulled out the rug from under my feet. I’m still sitting on the ground with a sucker punched exp

EDIT: 2/17/2017

I'm not changing my rating. Because this book was excellent due in large part to Stevie J Cole. But I will never read another book with BT URRUELA attached to the project. His actions and apology speak volumes about his personality.


4.5 stars for the ending I did not see coming.

(THAT is some seriously unusual shit, let me tell you.)

I pictured Christian Bale in American Psycho the entire time.

First and foremost, I want to give a huge THANK YOU for selecting me as one of the Lucky few to receive an ARC of this horrifyingly, glorious book!

I am not new to reading Suspense/Thrillers, but I do tend to stick to books that are more on the Dark Romance side, rather than books with guts and gore.

Wicked Little Words...what do I say, where do I begin?

Stevie J. Cole and BT Urruela did an outstanding job of co-writing this story. From one chapter to the next, I have a difficult time

.**********What the fuck happened stars*********..

When I start this book I wasnt expected romance or love story.. I was expecting something disturbing and dirty. But GOD. What was that. Jesus Christ.... It made my world upside down... broken my heart to million pieces one by one....... Mystery..... Ok.. Tension... Thriller.... Thats ok for me. But through the end I start to feel something is missing here... give it to me baby...

No NO........Im not sure anymore I will be fucking O.K near FUTURE..

Are you ready to have your mind turned inside out? Wicked Little Words will do that and more. This book gave me the creeps to say the least and the ending was twistedly unexpected.

Honestly, some of the graphic details had me shuttering. Right from the beginning the story takes a dark tone. It’s perfect for Halloween or a late night read during a storm.

"Do you think any of those fucking readers paid attention to my writing before I started killing people? Before I started getting the murders in my own novels as realistic as possible? You bet your goddamn ass they didn't. They want the gore. They want the carnage. They want the mayhem. And goddamn it, I'm going to give it to them."

I'm mind blown. I've sat here at my computer writing and deleting this review multiple times. Words are failing me, and that's really saying something because I rarely shut up.

I'm in awe of the sheer brilliance that BT Urruela and Stevie J Cole obviously possess to be able create this story. The co-writing is flawless! They compliment each other's writing so perfectly that to be honest, if the author names were not on the cover I would have thou

This was disappointing. I absolutely loved the ending but all but the last 15% of this book was very slow and not much happened so I honestly couldn't give it a higher rating.

I freaking love this bat shit crazy book. What did I just read? What happened to my moral compass? haha I would have never picked up a book like this because who the hell can love a serial killer? Oh boy, it's a nice little quick read that delivers so many emotions. I was screaming "run" in my head a few times; I had a lot of fun reading this book. I hope there's a movie based on this book soon, I don't even care if it's lifetime.

Oh my, where to start without giving anything away. I really enjoyed the story. Definitely a good twist on your dark serial killer reads. I never saw the ending coming. Really I think there was only one clue, and I totally missed it.

So the entire concept is a writer bringing their story to life. Really writing about how they kill women. And use the killing as their inspiration. It's a

Blue Reviews WICKED LITTLE WORDS by Stevie J. Cole and BT Urruela

The best I can do is to try and relay to you my most honest reactions and raw emotions while reading WICKED LITTLE WORDS. This is not my normal preferred genre and there were times where I was afraid that I would have to walk away from it.

I might have been able to put it down because of some of the intense insanity that was being played out on those pages. But if I had had the strength to leave the story because of my own personal

OUTSTANDING! I preordered...and it dropped at midnight right? So, I purposefully went to bed early, set my alarm for 12:30 am and woke up to read this book. Why? Because I needed to! Five hours later and I'm in shock. I'm an avid reader and I love my happily ever after. I'm an epilogue type girl. Therefore I was nervous to start this action packed, nail biter.

I don't even know where to begin so as not to give away spoilers. But, this will f**k with your mind after all is said and done. Read it in one sitting. That's how consuming and mind-blowing it was. Two authors writing together. Feeding off of each other's words. POV's of three different characters. Why only 4 s ...more

I can't even put into words this book and how it made me feel. There were so many OMG moments, very little romance which ironically I did not miss. The creativity in Stevie and BT to write these details and put it together to that epic ending is something I will never comprehend. This book is not romance necessarily but is a work of sheer genius! :) 5

This book was just no other book I have ever read. This isn't my usual genre...but I am so glad I stepped out of my box!!!! You are in for the ride of your life with this book. Stevie J Cole and BT Urruela are magical together. Five stars isn't nearly enough!!!

I'm vacillating between giving this 3.5 and 4 stars. The writing was good and the story flowed well but I kind of felt they let the cat out of the bag in the few few chapters including the prologue so 3.5 it is!

Review contains a few spoilers.

They want the gore. They want the carnage. They want the mayhem. And goddamn it, I'm going to give it to them.

Wow. My mind is on the ceiling. This is they type of thriller I love. Did not expect the ending. I love this! I can't wait to get my physical copy so I can reread this. I have read one of Cole's books before and two of Urruela's and love both of their work. So when on twitter I say Urruela post that he co-author with Cole on this I knew I had to have it

Stevie J. Cole likes to write realistic stories with raw, gritty characters you should hate but can't help but to love.

She's obsessed with rock music, loves sloths, and has an unnatural obsession with British accents.

Her books are not recommended for the faint of heart.
