From the author who brought you the Chastity Falls series, comes the second book in the Wicked Bay series...

Lo Stone should be used to change by now. It's been her life for the last year, but how much can a girl take before the cracks begin to show? She knew being with Maverick wouldn't be easy, but she didn’t anticipate her life in Wicked Bay becoming a game of deceit and

"I looked at Lo. Really looked at her. We were both broken. Products of our fucked-up pasts. But where I wanted to hurt and feel pain, she wanted to fix and make everything better."

In this book I learn more about Maverick, I realized why he was such a jerk in book one and behaved like that with Lo and his family and what was behind his fighting issue. He just wanted to protect them from becoming collateral damage. But I didn’t like the plan/game they started and those rules. It wasn’t f
I liked the first book a tad bit more...but it was still very entertaining. Now off to Kyle's book...I love that guy !!

Maverick and Lo are supposed to bring their relationship out into the open but Maverick is still holding back. However, he does bring Lo more into his world and lets her get to know more about him.

Maverick is still trying to deal with his rage and this time he goes too far. Everyone is upset but it helps bring them together and come up with a plan. Unfortunately, that means Maverick and Lo have to go back to being a secret and Lo has a really hard time.

I loved how much Lo was there for M

Wicked Rules is just that: Wicked!
I didn't know what hit me until I finished the book. If I had have the time, I would have finished it in one sitting. I already really liked Wicked Beginnings but Wicked Rules simply topped it. And with so much ease I never expected.

Best way to describe Lo and Rick is this quote: "We were both broken, but together, we were whole."

This book has everything I expect from a great YA romance: great chemistry, heart break, suspense, trouble, easy lovable side

Wicked Rules is the much-anticipated second installment in the Wicked Bay series by L.A. Cotton and one I couldn't wait to get my hands on. I'm pleased to report that Lianne doesn't disappoint, and it was a superb addition to what is already a very engrossing series. Prepare to swoon, laugh, cry, feel blood-boiling rage, gasp in shock, and cling to precious hope as you devour the pages.

I read this book in less than twenty-four hours and it sucked me in from the first beautiful word until t

*voluntarily and honestly reviewed the copy I received from the author*

This is like a 4.5 for me. The drama was seriously real with this one and if I wasn't crying, I was wishing that I could be there to strangle them. It definitely kept me interested because it wasn't too predictable and a lot of times, I just kept wanting to know how the couple would tackle this next ordeal. I loved seeing Lo accept to just love him through all their issues, but I'll admit, it got scary sometimes to see her tu

Maverick grows more in this.

This has definitely stepped up from the first book. We get more drama, but we also get more Maverick and more of his secrets unravelled. I love that the beginning and ending was Maverick’s POV it’s so important and it’s what makes you understand him and about the sacrifices he endures.

We don’t get to see more Lo in this but I’m glad cause Wicked Rules were all Maverick. I still don’t like her dad and I probably won’t. I still love the characters. Kyle is my favourit

I cannot get enough of these characters!! This story was angsty and is guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat! I am addicted to everything this author writes, and this story certainly lives up to all of my expectations.

I’ve just finished Wicked Rules on a high. I FLOVED this book; the good, the bad, the angst and heartache, I loved it all.
I’ve previously read and loved Lianne’s Chastity Falls series. It was so awesome that I wasn’t sure another book could compare. But Wicked Bay... my heart betrayed me and fell in love right there. This series rivals CF big time. Maverick has to be one of the most impossible men on the face of the planet. He’s a mystery, an enigma, a monumental screw-up...or is he really?! Co

Lo and Maverick are where they left off. Wicked Rules starts where Wicked Beginnings ended. It's angsty and full of stomach churning tension. Wicked Rules is everything you would expect from L.A. Cotton's writing. Longing, need, desire drip off the words. Panic, desperation, and pain leach off of the pages. Love shines in the darkness.

Wicked Rules is truly a rollercoaster of "is love enough to keep them from falling apart." With so many outside forces against them, Maverick and Lo are

Yet another book that Cotton has smacked out of the park.

This story is a continuation of book one. Although the first book didn't leave it on a cliffhanger, more of a HFN 'Happy for Now', the way Cotton wrote it, meant that we has a small taste of the possibilities, a bit like Skittles, were were allowed to 'Taste the rainbow', and that little lick left us craving more.
With this book, she delivered in spades.
This is a duel POV, which personally, I love. It allowed us to delve into Mavericks t

I really enjoyed the second book in the Wicked Bay series and could not wait to jump back in Maverick and Lo's life. Book two was fantastic. It was sexy, emotional and filled to the brim with secrets. It was angsty yet equally heartwarming and I could not get enough.

This book continued roughly right where book one left off but we are given more of a glimpse into Maverick's head and heart. I enjoyed that we saw more of his emotional and vulnerable side when it came to Lo. His emotions felt heart

I was eagerly awaiting book two and the wait was so worth it.

Wicked rules is the continuation of Lo and Maverick's secret relationship, the pressures from family and school, the secrets behind Mavericks Moody ways, it all comes to light and it was so damn good.

Wicked Rules, book 2 in the Wicked Bay series by L.A.Cotton. Wow..I'm so emotional right now!! This story has been one hell of an rollercoaster of emotions! Filled with angst, love, lies, rules and then some more angst. It has kept me on the edge of losing my sanity.

"Maybe time apart would be a good thing. Give us chance to get our heads straight and process everything. Or maybe it would make the darkness bite back with a vengeance."

I couldn’t wait for this 2nd instalment of Wicked Bay from Wicked beginnings we were left with so many secrets and we knew for sure that Lo and Mavericks story was far from over.

Well we’re not disappointed in Wicked Rules, there was so much to this story. I felt like we hadn’t touch the surface with what both Maverick and Lo were hiding and i couldn’t wait to find out. Once again another of L.A cottons book i couldn’t put down. I didn’t want to rush it but i couldn’t help it.

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book, given by the author.
Lo and Maverick’s story continues, we have seen them have their moment on the first book and we were sure it was their time. But unfortunately for them, life has other plans and it will give them another great fight before it lets them enjoy their love.

They are perfect together; their chemistry is something out of a fairy tale. She is everything he needs and he could be that to

Maverick and Lo are finally a couple. Shhh it is still a secret. This book will take you for a ride that is full of twists and turns. Maverick and Lo's relationship will cause you as much sorrow as it will happiness. What I loved most about the book is we finally get answers. Why is Maverick like he is? You will find out all his secrets in this book. While we find out Mavericks secrets Lo holds hers close to her chest. Their secrets will cause you some tears and plenty of emotions.

Wicked Rules picks up where Wicked Beginnings left off, Maverick & Lo have finally got there act together and are a couple. Their relationship isn’t all hearts and flowers though, as Maverick is still keeping secrets and trying to push Lo away.

Never feeling good enough for her because of his past, he reluctantly feeds her bits of him. Until something happens that could change their relationship and Maverick is forced to let her all the way in...or risk losing Lo forever.

Captivating and addictive...

This young adult series is truly blowing me away...I love all the characters in this story and the screwed up, angst filled world they inhabit... at the centre there is Maverick who is such a deeply complex character and Lo with all her strength and beauty..

This is the second in the series and Lo and Maverick take turns to provide their point of view on the proceedings... I loved being given a little more insight into the feelings of both characters by way of their in

I've just finished reading my Arc of Wicked Rules & wow, it's tense!!

We thought we knew the games that were being played by all the players in School but that's not even the half of it!!! It's no wonder Maverick wants to keep his and Lo's relationship a secret from all but a few.

Can Lo be strong enough to stand by her man in the hardest of circumstances for her? Will outside influences push our feisty. girl too far? Or maybe they just aren't 'meant to be' after all??

The reveals are huge & awful

More Maverick and Lo? Yes please! I seriously couldn't put this book down. You can't help but fall in love with these two. They are still two haunted souls who have to keep fighting for their love. But fight they do. I hurt for Lo. There were so many times when I just wanted her to punch Caitlin in the face (she SO deserved it!) but I was glad that she finally stood her ground in the end. Maverick, where do you even start with him. He has so much weight thrust on him. I was so glad that he had L ...more

This book has a lot to do with trust...trusting yourself as well as others.

Maverick...he is continually sabotaging himself and the relationship he could have with Lo by building walls and pushing people out. Because he thinks she won't be able to handle the truth, or will turn away from him after learning the truth. Instead of trusting because of past issues he turns inward.

Lo is also running from past demons! She is unhappy with everyone keeping her in the dark but, she does the same to the p

I cried when they finally let their guards down around each other and gave into the love they felt for one another.

In here the book continues complicated relationship between Lo and Maverick, and their whole family. But this part? Is so much darker. Has so much more drama and I love it!!

This was another book I read in one sitting. LA has a habit of making me forget everything and just immerse myself in her words. This book is a fantastic follow up to Wicked Bay #1, she has really outdone herself on this series. I loved her Chastity Falls series but I actually think this series so far is better. LA's talent for writing in this genre seems to strengthen with every new release and I honestly have no idea where she will take me next. I loved both Maverick, Lo and all the other mino ...more

This is Lo and Mavericks continuing story, which takes place where Wicked Beginnings ended. Maverick gets to tell his side of the story and what a story it was. His life is filled with secrets and lies and he spends his days trying to protect those he loves and cares most about. When he finally comes clean to Lo, they get to share in a small amount of hapiness before Alec Prince steps in to manipulate his son into doing his bidding once again.

This is book 2 in the Wicked Bay series. You absolutely have to read book 1 or you’ll be lost as to what’s going on. I really disliked Maverick in the previous book but that changed in this one. He was one mystery guy but I’m glad he finally came clean and got to understand why he does certain things and is the way he is. The author definitely pulled you in and made you feel bad for everything Maverick and Lo had to deal with during this book. This was an enjoyable read. It’s going to be a long ...more
