5 stars.

That was perfect! Erica Lynn's best book yet. I LOVED William! Sexy, sultry, & SWEET! And OMG if you've read the Love and Justice series, there's a little surprise in store!

And my "It Ends With Us" book hangover? GONE!

This novella was a lot more emotional than I was expecting, which was a very pleasant surprise! When Kara and William did get together, beneath the dynamite-infused love scenes, there was a nice, protective emotional tenderness that despite his Alpha exterior, William had with Kara. It was quite romantic. There were some genuinely funny moments and lines, which were great with the sexual tension and enemies-to-lovers dynamic between them. There were a lot of twists and turns with William’s famil ...more

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

This is a short book which tells a pretty involved story. It is a classic case of two people who shouldn't like each other finding out they have some amazing chemistry. And they definitely test it to its limits (wicked game indeed) ! There is an interesting twist which made it stand out, and it is written with a good mix of humour and seriousness.

This is the first book I've read by this author, but it won't be my last. I loved Kara and William right from the start. She was an independent woman trying to keep her grandfather's bar afloat and her father out of trouble. William was poised to have the family company handed over to him. However, the task directed to him could potentially derail a relationship with Kara before it really gets started. The attraction between these two was instantaneous, the chemistry sizzling, and the banter wit ...more

The banter between Kara and William was awesome, she’s a spitfire, stubborn, doesn’t need anything from anyone and can do it all by herself, or so she thought. Little does she know that the hot, sexy William has a little secret of his own but finds himself smitten by her and wants to help her succeed with her bar. He’s been sent by his father to buy her out of her bar, and now that they are getting closer, what will happen when Kara learns the truth behind the lies? Will she still want to be wit ...more

Kara Smith cannot stand William Richardson, but somehow she found herself giving into one, hot interlude with him. Since then, her mind is occupied with him, but she has no time for a man when her financial struggles are about to kill her, anyway. But when she and William reconnect, and certain things come to light, will she figure out who's been playing whom?

This is a quick read, but quite entertaining and content-rich. I liked the banter and chemistry between the two main characters. Definitel

Fun sexy enemies to lovers romance

I've been binge reading Erica Lynn this week. It was hard to decide but this book was my favorite of her May releases.
Kara and William have amazing chemistry and some seriously hot moments. Their banter is smart and I loved watching them fall for each other.
I received an advance reader copy.

Wicked Game is certainly wicked. It's also funny, steamy and, at its core, all about hope. I love the characters and world Erica Lynn has created. I also love how she links them together, without making it confusing for anyone who hasn't read her other books. For those fans of the Love and Justice series, you'll get it!

Kara is stressed and carrying the weight of the world on her shoulders. Keeping secrets from everyone she knows isn't easy. Neither is trying to save the legacy her grandfather le

I enjoyed this little nugget of wicked pleasure. Family pressure and perceived expectations almost kept them apart but meddling friends saved the day!

Secrets abound in this story with some witty dialogue that focuses on the hope that everything will work itself out for the best. Kara is a young woman with more than her share of heartache. She has an alcoholic father and it trying to cope with his issues while attempting to maintain her grandfather’s legacy by running the bar he built from the ground up, named after her. William’s family owns successful nightclubs and is looking to add another. William is losing his enthusiasm with t

Another great read from Erica! After reading the Fantasies Unmasked series, I was drawn to this book, which is actually set in the same world! This was short read, which I was a little bummed about because I’m drawn to longer books and do feel that this book could have been developed into a full read rather than a novella. I would have loved to learn more about these characters had the book been longer. Despite that, I really enjoyed this short story. There is something about Erica’s writing and ...more

*An ARC was provided in exchange of an honest review*

Loved this read!!! Kara is a total independent badass chick who is determined to reach her goals for her bar and she doesn’t need anyone’s help to make that happen, or so the thinks. William has an agenda but the chemistry between the two is so intense that both can’t help but be attracted to one another. We all know things that start off amidst a little evasion makes for some interesting times especially when attraction & feelings are involv

Kara and William met thru some mutual friends and instantly dislike one another. So nobody is more shocked than the two of them when they end up drinking and dancing and having a great time together one night.
That night led to another and another. But both have secrets they will do anything to hide. When the secrets are revealed will they be able to make their very new and very passionate relationship work or will it be over before it started?

If you're looking for a hot, witty, sexy, quick good

I absolutely loved this story!! This is the first book I've read by this author, I'm looking forward to reading more. Wicked Game is a quick, extremely steamy story. Kara is the owner of a run-down bar and William is the son of a developer. Kara and William have mutual friends so they find themselves at the same social events. Kara has always been cold toward William until one night when she lets her guard down. Things get really hawt!! What will happen when Kara discovers Williams true identity ...more

Great read!

What a great read! I loved the banter between Kara and William and the heat was even better. Kara was the damsel in distress that was determined to save herself. She didn't want to count on anyone. William was given the task of buying Kara out. Once he puts aside his animosity toward Kara and visa versa they find they like each other. And their chemistry is explosive. The only trouble is William doesn't mention his father's plans for Kara's bar. He instead tries to help her revitalize

Money or romance

Kara needed money to renovate her grandfathers bar, Williams father wants him to buy her off to turn the bar into a resort area. When the two come together sparks instead of words fly and the passion takes over both of them. But when the truth comes out will it be the end of the romance? Or the beginning of a legacy? With adorable characters and a heartwarming storyline this was a great book.

Loved, loved this book. It was quite entertaining with a well developed story line and characters. Loved how the main characters interacted from the beginning to the end. It was a page turner for me until the end, which I didn't want to come as I neared it. A new author for me but this won't be my last read. Loved it!!!

This is a fast read with a high heat level. Kara is doing everything she can to keep her bar running. An unexpected attraction to William can either help her to keep it or lose it. When she realizes who stabbed her in the back and where her life can go she will learn to trust the right person and turn her life around.

William and Kara know each other socially though mutual friends but they rub each other the wrong way until one night changes everything.

Kara has inherited her grandfather’s bar however it is a financial struggle to complete the repairs that are needed to make it more profitable however William’s father wants the land that Kara’s bar is located on and he wants William in to convince her to sell.

Will William choose to help Kara keep the bar or will he assist his father so that he can get the prom

Enemies to lovers is always a hit or miss for me. This one is a definite home run. The tension between Kara and William from the first page is so thick, I had trouble breathing. Once they let their guard down the tension changes into something so hot, I'm surprised my kindle didn't combust. Not only was this hot but the emotions that they both go through are vast. Both of them have family issues that impact the relationship they are trying to build. Wonderful read and my first from Erica Lynn bu ...more
