I play to win, and I won’t let anything—or anyone—get in the way of what I want.

What a crazy ride! Everything I was worried about for Vaughn in book one came crashing down on her. I had no idea how she was going to get out of the mess. It seemed that no matter what she did she was going to feel backlash.

Ryker was the bad guy at the end of book one. I love how the author starts out the second book with his pov of those events. We got to see into his mind and what he was thinking. I'm used to reading about hero's who dominate the enemy, so it was a bit surprising to see that
Oh, sweet baby Jesus! This was everything I wanted and nothing I was expecting!

Vaughn and Ryker’s story picks up where it heartbreakingly broke off in book one. Ryker has messed up royally, as in there is no going back after his actions. We get his point of view and we understand the why, but you know, sometimes that just doesn’t justify a person’s actions. And Vaughn does not yield to his explanations and pleas for forgiveness. If you like groveling, the first forty percent of this book is fill

WOWZA!!! Talk about ending with a bang!! Because this book was one plot twist after another with a grovel so good, it's DELICIOUS. Like finger licking good. Seriously. YUM!!!

I was instantly hooked on Ryker and Vaughn in the first book. Their back and forth, never ending power play did something for me. In a big way. There was something just so spine tingling about their connection. Both

After that cliffhanger in Resist, I could not wait a second to read Reveal. As soon as it appeared on my Kindle, I started reading because I wanted to know what would happen to Ryker and especially Vaughn. My goodness, what a roller coaster this was for these two! I was at the edge of my seat at every turn but since this is K. Bromberg we are talking about, I was 100% in and all over

You need to have read Resist before diving in to Reveal, is it carries on right where the first book finished off.

Ugh, now at the end of the first book I was so annoyed with our leading lady. Seriously Vaughn, after all you and Ryker had been through, you run off p!ssed at him and the world and don't let him talk to you. Did you really think that was what happened. Ugh. This is a big bug bear of mine, when the characters don't communicate.

Guilty Pleasures Book Reviews
A little bit of suspense … a whole lot of drama. A beautiful little girl … a woman who doesn’t know who to trust. A man who won’t admit his feelings … another man who is on a power trip … and another man who can ruin everything. A complex and intriguing story that will grip you right from the beginning and not let you go.

Ryker is a man in love who is fighting the fight of his life. Trying to fight is feelings, trying to fight the Senator, trying to fight to get Vaughn to understand and accept hi

This is the exciting conclusion to the Wicked Ways duet and it definitely lived up to the title.

If you cast your mind back to how things left off between Ryker and Vaughan, he had dug himself into a very large hole that he needed a digger to get out of. Vaughan is feeling completely devastated and blind sided by the one person she implicitly trusted. Everything Vaughan has been working so hard for could be taken from her and it’s all down to Ryker. She wished she had never let him in to her life

OMG this book was amazing, the anticipation/waiting was unbearable. It picked up where the last book left off. Vaughn Sanders & Ryker Lockhart were perfect until that moment when Vaughn walked in on Ryker & the senator conversation, the one man Vaughn hated. Feeling betrayed because of Ryker's words & action Vaughn vowed to never believe in a man again. This book had you going through every emotion, it had so many twist and turns that have your head spinning. Worth a read you will be left on a b ...more

Ryker and Vaughn UTTERLY CONSUMED my life. A sleepless night after the ending of Resist and then I was restless the whole time I read Reveal.

O. M. G.

Their intense story line was an incredible rollercoaster ride of suspense and emotion as well as a combo of heat filled tension and passion from ebb and flows of Ryker and Vaughn’s relationship.

It took me quite some time to come down from the incredible high I got from this book. I needed long moments to decompress. I mean, for two days straight

Well that was just intense!
Ryker and vaughn’s story was filled with secrets, deception and so many things that will make you wanting more.

Sure this book wasn’t perfect. Vaughn tested my patience a little bit in this book but overall I more than liked it.
There is absolutely no doubt that the chemistry between Ryker and Vaughn is passionate.
These characters lives makes for a storyline that is filled with drama without it being predictable.

I kind of sort of jumped into this one without doing any research so I was surprised to start the book and discover the story continued from book one (that I didnt' read) and the characters were already introduced and their romance established. The love story has just hit a big ol' bump on the road to HEA and it's super angsty right from page one!

That being said, I still enjoyed the book. It was way more emotionally heavy than I expected and deals with a lot of intense situations (see Possible T

Wow! What a heart pounding, action packed ride this was! After the shocking cliffhanger in Resist, Reveal immediately picks up from there, and the action doesn’t stop until the very end. This book was intense, somewhat exhausting in how many secrets, lies, and mysteries were unraveled. But, seriously, I don’t think my heart stopped racing from the moment I started reading. It really does take you on an incredible ride, and you’re trying to figure out what the heck is happening here. T

This is a romance book, and it is the 2nd book in the Wicked Ways series. I read and review Wicked Ways book 1, and the way that Wicked Ways Book 1 ended I have been dying to read this book. I felt this book was just ok not great.
Sarah - Musings of the Modern Belle

It was enjoyable. Lots of drama, edge of your seat type of plot moments, but near the end it go to be a bit much. I did enjoy the HEA. It was so sweet on all accounts.

The narrators are fantastic!!! I enjoyed both the female and male voices.

While not my favorite K. Bromberg novel it was still a good book. I would recommend it for sure.
The Romance Book Disciple (Samantha)
So much deception! Secrets, lies, cons, bribes. It was like WTF is going on. Ryker made a HUGE mistake (because for a smart guy, he was dumb AF) so you get lots of groveling. But, even that takes kind of a back seat to the numerous mysteries going on simultaneously! This duet is stunning!

YES YES YES YES YES! Finally! I feel like I have been waiting for years for book two. I freaking loved book one. I read it, I re-read it and I have listened to it on audio, and now finally it's time for book two and after battling my love and HATE relationship with cliffhangers I had come to terms with the fact that I would have to wait, and that was where the re-reading and listening came in, because I wanted to know if I had missed something. Because I NEEDED ANSWERS!!

I will quickly say now if

Reveal is the conclusion of Vaughn and Ryker's story and I think K. Bromberg did a great job with this duet with fantastic writing and a compelling and compelling storyline.

The story begins from where the other book left off and without wanting to go into detail I can only say that it was good to have Ryker's point of view to understand what was going through his mind at that time.This book has more drama, more mysteries, and events than the first. I think while the first book served to show

„Most people look for love in the sunrise, when they don’t realize for them it can be found in the sunset.”

Resist left me in such suspense that I was shaking from anticipation just thinking about book two in the Wicked Ways series. But K. Bromberg didn't give me just a conclusion for Vaughn and Ryker’s story... Oh no. She decided to stir even more and thus she brought a book full of tension, unexpected twists and a whole range of feelings.

Before you reach for Reveal book two of Wicked Ways duet, you need to read Resist story first.

I don't know about you all but I was devastated and heartbroken after Kristy Bromberg author dropped heart stopping cliffhanger at the end of Resist book. I couldn't believe and literally hated Ryker for everything he did to Vaughn in previous book. I presumed that there could be a little sham in that situation but come on! How could he?!

Then I was on the pins and needles waiting for the Reveal book an

What a freaking REVEAL. The title lives up to it's name that is for dang sure. This author almost took me to the brink of death from the suspense. Holy crap, I was not expecting this one to be a nail biter, but boy was I wrong. Overall, this was a well rounded duet, that came together perfectly. I had so many questions at the end of Resist and this author made dang sure, every single one and some was answered.

4.5  Star review of Reveal (Wicked Ways #2) by K Bromberg

Whenever I see the name Kristy Bromberg I know I am in for a great read and Reveal was no exception. This is the conclusion to the Wicked Ways duet, so if you haven’t read Resist, then do not continue, as this book picks up where Resist ends.

From the first to the last chapter, I was riveted to the roller coaster story that Ms. Bromberg wove. I loved the characters of Ryker Lockhart and Vaughn Sanders although at times I wanted to scream i
Brittany from Can’t Quit Books
This is the conclusion to the duet in the Wicked Ways series, so make sure you read Resist before reading this one.

The ending of Resist had my jaw on the floor, and this book picks up right where it left off.

Vaughn is still trying to get her ducks in a row so she can get Lucy, and Ryker is fighting his emotions about having a relationship.

These two are pretty much a train wreck you can’t look away from the entire time. The twists, turns, surprises keep coming and keep them from truly opening
Sunny Shelly Reads

Reveal picks up at the shocking cliffhanger from the previous book, but now we get Ryker's POV. Why he did what he did, why he feels the way he does about relationships... we get a good look inside his mind. And he spends a lot of time groveling for Vaughan's forgiveness, but even that may not be enough as these two navigate a relationship.

Ryker really shows a vulnerable side, which I loved. Because I thought he was a jerk the first time around. He redeemed himself in my e

She did it again. Left us hanging and then boom!!! All the intrigue and mystery of Resist is revealed in Reveal (sorry pun intended) with a little added twist just to keep you on your toes. Vaughn Sanders is my new best friend I didn't just love her I loved loved loved her!!! Fabulous character development and Ryker wasn't too shabby either. K.

Fab duet.

K Bromberg is an absolute favorite of mine. Her writing talent is exceptional. I'm never dissapointed. This duet was wonderful. Ryker, oh my! He was strong, hot, arrogant, at times you will want to ring his neck...Vaughn was a great match to him. Inwardly she felt vulnerable with everything that was unfolding, but she tried her best to remain strong during all the twists and turns that were thrown in her way.
Vaughn's neice, Lucy, was a lovely addition to the story, in fact a lot of wha

So I was mad when the last story ended of a cliff hanger and I had to wait to read the next part. That's just me - I prefer a cliff-hanger story only when all the books have already been released. (This is a two part series with this one being the second book.) DO NOT START WITH THIS ONE!!! YOU WILL BE LOST!!!

This one starts exactly where the last one stopped.
Duh! :)

This book had a lot more suspense, and intrigue than the first book in this duet. The first very much set the scene, but this one was where the action came in!

One of the last twists—talk about a double whammy! I can’t image having a more screwed up day! I really ended up liking both Vaughn, and Ryker in the end, and especially together. Their chemistry was strong, but so was their connection and feelings toward one another.

I like this authors a lot, and have read the vast majori

I loved this conclusion to Ryker & Vaughn's story. Plenty of emotions, action, mistakes and more. They certainly didn't make it easy to reach their HEA. There were times that I wanted to shake them both. The chemistry in this one was seriously hot & I loved the way the story twisted and turned right to the very end. Definitely recommend.
