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.
Loved reading their story...it was a ha

description
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

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 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.

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

Up All Night w/ Books Blog


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

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 figh

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.

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.
