Aug 01, 2018 rated it really liked it
This was cute. Nothing mind boggling or thought provoking. Just cute with some steamy smut scattered in the mix.

Told in dual POV and standalone story. Has a HFN that kinda cut off with no solid outcome of marriage or even living together and a vague lead up into a spinoff about a character that was barely introduced near the very end. Sigh.... but the excerpt to said spinoff Shameless sounded interesting so I guess I’ll put it on the TBR in hopes to get glimpses of a possible HEA for this book’s
Sissy's Romance Book Review
Wicked by by M. Malone & Nana Malone is the story of Hunter and Bailey.
Hunter and Bailey happened to meet at a bar where Hunter was having drinks with his co-workers and she with his friends. They ended up talking and hit it off quickly...but then Hunter learned that Bailey will be working at the same company he works at...which has a strict no fraternization policy. So they try to keep to being in the friends zone but their attraction becomes to much.

I am a huge fan of both of these authors as co-writers and individually. In a bit of a change of romantic suspense, Wicked is a funny and sweet and I devoured the story.

Happy reading!

Wicked was a sweet, sexy, and easy read. The attraction between Bailey and Hunter was instant and palpable. Though they worked hard to keep things platonic, it was only a matter of time before they crossed a line. The anticipation of will they/won’t they, had me anxiously tearing through the pages. While frustrating at times, I understood the dilemma and was eager to find out what would happen.

As a straight forward contemporary romance, I was missing the action and intrigue I look forward to wit

Wicked is a blend of friends-to-lovers, forbidden office romance and an insta-love between Hunter Richards and Bailey.

Bailey and Hunter met the night before she started her job at Bold Horizons, where office romances were very much frowned upon. So their insta-connection was put on the back-burner. A year later, their friendship has grown to becoming best friends with each hiding their true feelings for each other.

One day when working late, Bailey heard her boss (Mr. Dent) umm.... pleasuring hi

My first book by any of the Malone's and I got to say I'm shocked. How is it possible I've never read anything before?? A HUGE mistake which I'm correcting ASAP.

This was a quick, fun, hot and sexy read. I admit I love when friends learn that they are ment to be so much more. I loved that even though they had this crazy attraction between them, they didn't act on it right away. I think that's what made this book so good for me. Hunter having that dirty mouth also helped 😉

Super excited about Wild

Whether sweating bullets or setting off sparks Malone squared knows how to peak interest. After all the drama of a few sinners and royals undercover, Wicked is a refreshing change. Bailey is a girl in transition. She wants people to believe she has life all figured out, but she can't even manage to convince herself. Hunter is her beacon. He chases away her moments of doubt with his charming smile and broad shoulders, but he wants more. When it comes to winning Bailey's heart, all bets are off. H ...more

Wicked is the first book I've read by these two authors. I've seen/heard of them before but I just never got to reading one of their books. Wicked was a lovely rom com, friends to lovers, office type romance. It had great funny moments, steamy moments, and my favorite angsty moments. 

Hunter was great and my favorite part of this story. Bailey did kinda annoy me at certain parts of the book but overall she was ok. 

I've said this several times the past couple weeks because for some reason I ended

What a fun, fantastic read! It's a blend of insta-love, friends-to-lovers, and an office romance, too!

Hunter and Bailey meet the night before she starts working at the same company where Hunter works. As much as they clicked that first night, both know nothing can happen now that they're coworkers so they become best friends instead.

A year later, Bailey is traumatized by her lecherous boss, and Hunter is there to help her deal with it. This marks a seismic shift in their awareness of each other

Wicked by M. Malone and Nana Malone is an interoffice and friends to lovers romance that is sure to make your day a little more fun.

Hunter and Bailey meet and hit it off nicely. They seem like a match made in heaven, until they learn they will be working together. With a strict no fraternization rule, they keep things friendly and are quickly BFFs. But when a rather traumatizing event leads to too much alcohol, feelings and long

I was surprised to find this pretty little story on my kindle.

It's one of my first stories by M. Malone, but won't be my last.
Really nicely written, edited well, with great character development.

So glad I took a chance on this story, definitely worth a read. :)

Wicked a five-star read that you turn you green with envy. Bailey and Hunter made me chuckle several times, I wanted to bang heads together but thankfully a horrid boss did my job for me. They both had great qualities to them and made you fall for them in different ways, Bailey has been where we all have at some point, fed up and needing a break and thankfully Hunter is a strong man and he is able to give her the time she needs. I loved the whole morning after the drunken incident, who hasn’t wo ...more

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was well-written, had an intriguing plot and enough twists and turns to keep the reader interested. I particularly appreciated how the writer introduces Noah Blake into the story and shows what sort of a connection he and Hunter had from an early age.

For Hunter women have never been a problem, but from the moment he hears Bailey laugh there is just something about her that captivates him; now he suddenly understands how people can fall in love with just one

I just have to start out by saying, that I always said to myself, if I ever became a writer, and had numerous series, I would make each of them linked somehow, by at least one character. Then I find the Malones and I'm like seeee!! I would so do that! I freaking love how there is always some sort of link between their books...or at least between the ones I've read anyways! I love that!!

Obviously, I loved this book. These authors have quickly become a favorite of mine. The writing is easy to read

This book is one that is absolutely enjoyable, Minx and Nana you had me from the very beginning and I knew Hunter would become my hero. WOO HOO do these ladies know how to write a fantasy boyfriend, come on couldn't we all use a guy like Hunter in our lives. Bailey's character came to life for me too. If you ever worked or intern before you know there is always a creepy guy weather he is a boss or a co-worker. This is a engrossing, thrilling and blazin

I’m a sucker for an office romance, especially one where the two characters attempt to fight their attraction due to a no-fraternization policy as well as the heroine’s goal to focus on her education and gain experience through an important internship.

M. Malone & Nana Malone clearly illustrate just how much chemistry exists between Hunter and Bailey from their very first encounter, so while they make the decision to embark on a platonic relationship/close friendship, they’re constantly fighting
I completely loved it! M. you are one of my favorites of 2018! You have given me Royalty that I loved and now you have given me everyday working class. Your characters are most certainly lovable and give it their all.

You have chemistry for the two from the beginning but they don't act on it till later do to work place politics. Bailey is an intern at Bo ...more

From the moment Hunter Richards first saw Bailey Jones he understood the meaning of love at first sight. From her infectious laughter down to her curvaceous backside, Bailey was everything he ever wanted, too bad she was also the new intern at his current job. A strict no fraternization policy went into effect recently which meant he wouldn't be getting to know Bailey as any more than friends unless he wanted to jeopardize both of their jobs.

Funny, cute, and wickedly sexy. Bonding over a love of sci-fi, a disgusting surprise, and a drunken grope...things are conspiring to bring Hunter and Bailey together as more than just friends. Hunter has been attracted to Bailey right from the start but it's clear she wants a friendship without the sexy benefits and he's not sure how much longer he can hold back. Bailey is incredibly attracted to her best friend but she knows she's young and needs to be focused on her education and career until ...more

I’ve read quite a few books that these two authors have co written together and Wicked is up there with my favourites. Wicked is a sweet, sexy rom com and completely different to what I’ve read previously by these two authors.

Hunter and Bailey meet on a night out and hit it off straight away but once Hunter finds out that Bailey is going to be working at the same office he does, he knows he has to back off. Inter office relationships are frowned upon so instead Hunter goes the friend

I loved this book so hard. Wicked might be one of my favorite reads to date. M. Malone and Nana Malone are amazing separately, but together, their work is off the charts amazing. I found myself sucked in from the start of this book and could not put it down.

From strangers to best friends to lovers. A great story of friendship and love. Bailey and Hunter have a chance meeting in a bar one night only to find that they will be co-workers. They are a perfect match but they both have rules about dating co-workers and then the company changes their fraternization rules. One very tough day at work though and a lot can change.

Bailey has an internship during her college summer break, working at a prestigious Marketing company. She needs this job to get into

M. Malone has done it again with another fantastic love story. I could not put it down - really, I read this in one day!

I loved Hunter the moment I met him in this story. He is just the right mix of nice guy meets bad boy and instantly feels a connection with Bailey when they meet. The night they meet, they realize that they are both working for the same company and there is a no-fraternization policy - plus how awkward would it be to work together if things didn't work out.

Wicked by M. Malone and Nana Malone was a quick, fun and very sexy read. Imagine meeting a someone you feel a strong connection with and then finding out they will be working with you, in a company with a very strict no fraternization policy?

As much as he wants her he has had to put his desires for her on the back burner. But after Bailey witnesses something she didn't want to see and Hunter has to take care of her all bets are off.

Flirty sexy fun that draws you in from the start. Wicked is a book you can't put down once you start. The Malone ladies know how to bring out the big guns when it comes to hot sexy scenes. You are left fanning yourself and possibly in need of a change of panties after you are through with Hunter and Bailey in this one. I love this book. Friends to lovers always pulls me in to begin with. But adding the fact that you can't deny the instant chemistry between Hunter and Bailey with the revelation t ...more
