After one look, I wanted you. But after one kiss, I knew I’d do anything to have you.”

I have been waiting for this moment all my life!!! OK, so maybe not my entire life. But it sure feels like it, dang it! Because Shayla Black has been tempting us with One-Mile and Brea's story for too long and I've been chomping at the bit in my glee to get my grabby little hands on it. And the second this baby hit my kindle? I DEVOURED IT. I don't think I even blinked. Or maybe I did blink

One Mile and Brea's story...part one done and loved it!!!
I am glad I waited for part 2 cause I hate cliff hanger books as I am an impatient reader.
Next up part 2!!

My initial thoughts when I finished Wicked as Sin were: We finally have One-Mile’s story and believe me it’s everything I hoped it would be. Now Bring on Wicked Ever After!

Pierce Walker aka “One-Mile” is someone that has made several appearances in both the Wicked Lovers and Devoted Lovers Series so of course he had caught my eye and I had hoped we would get to know more about him and now Shayla Black has gifted us with his story, and I LOVED IT!

As a reader, we’ve all experienced that, “Hmm, I would love to know more about you” feeling when a side character is interacting with the current leads in the book we’re reading or the character is peppered into various scenes throughout a series, but never with much depth or description. Pierce “One-Mile” Walker is that character for me.

I’ve “met” him several times through my favorite series: Wicked Lovers and Devoted Lovers and grew more intrigued each time. Especially once his relationship wi

I’ve been waiting for Pierce and Brea’s story for a while. Well, ever since the beginning of Devoted to Pleasure. That’s when I began to get twitchy wanting their story LoL I wasn’t sure what to expect from the story-line but I knew if Shayla was writing it that it would be passionate and twisty in all the best ways! She didn’t disappoint. She rarely does.

If you’re new to the words of Shayla Black, welcome, what took you so long?! If you’re not, sit tight and enjoy this suspenseful, action-pack

This one is, like... half my own fault, but only half.

Putting this on my DNF shelf because I mistakenly accepted the ALC without realizing it was a spin-off of two other series (one of which is 12 books long). I was hoping, once I realized that, that I could pick up with this one (because I feel like that's how it works with most romance spin-off series?), but 1) I immediately felt like I was missing too much vital info, and 2) I very quickly realized I wasn't enjoying the writing enough to put

Why would the heroine, Brea, never correct her best friend, Cutter, who is assuming the hero, One-Mile, must have raped her because there's no way good girl Brea would have had sex with a guy like him? Why??? Your best friend is accusing the man you love of rape and you just evade the question because you're embarrassed? Better let people think he's a rapist? Multiple times?
This book is so bad, I'm not sticking around for the second book, this is awful. I'm done.

Wicked as Sin is the first part of One-Mile and Brea's story by Shayla Black. It's not a stand-alone novel and the second and final book will be available after one month of this book's publication date, so we won't have to wait long for the conclusion of the story. It does end with a cliffhanger, but it's not a huge one.

What bothered me the most while reading this book is the pseudo-love triangle between One-Mile, Brea and Brea's best friend who is a male aka Cutter from Devoted to Ple

5 Star review of Wicked As Sin (Wicked & Devoted #1) by Shayla Black

I was a little worried about diving in to Wicked As Sin as I had not read many books in either The Wicked Lovers or Devoted Lovers series. However since this is book one in her latest Wicked & Devoted series, I decided to dive in and I needn’t have worried. This book has a lot going on and although not a particularly long book, Ms.Black certainly packed a lot in to it. Please be aware that this book ends in a cliff hanger, so yo

Folks, I was not prepared for the ensuing steam.

I picked this book up on a whim to prevent an impending reading slump. Then I inhaled it in one sitting and here I lay, sleep-deprived, speechless, and ready for book 2.

Wicked as Sin was my first Shayla Black read, and I confess to being a wee bit tentative before starting. Although I’ve been curious about the author’s work, I never quite felt the push to grab one of her books. Then, when Wicked as Sin had me curious, I found out it linked two of the author’s other series. Wicked as Sin is the first book in the Wicked & Devoted series, combining the author’s The Wicked Lovers and Devoted Lovers worlds. I feared I would not understand, but I was wrong.

Normally I try and wait if I know the book is a cliffhanger but since Shayla Black wrote this, it's not a big deal for me. These characters wormed their way into my heart and just like that I'm hooked. Pierce (One Mile) and Brea are totally opposite of each other. He's an ex-military and a sniper...she's a preachers daughter. Pierce sees Brea and instantly knows he wants her but there's the problem of a teammater, Cutter and Brea's father. Don't get me started on Cutter! Even though he's a teamm ...more

I've been waiting to read this series. We have met Brea and Pierce shortly in previous series. I'm so thankful for Shayla for giving us their love story. You will not be able to put this book down.

Pierce has not known love. He had a troubled childhood. He has learn to go for what he wanted and not let anything stop him. From the moment he laid eyes on Brea he knew she was his.

Pierce dropped a bomb on Brea pertaining to his father. Then he has to leave again to hopefully capture the man who held

Entering a Shayla Black read always means one is going to get three things in magnificent spades. Emotion, action, and expert storytelling. In "Wicked As Sin", this creator has doubled down on all three of those elements--and more. My expectations (always high with this writer) were blown out of the water with One-Mile and Brea's story, beginning with two protagonists that couldn't come from more different worlds. But none of that's important from the second they meet--an insta-attraction moment ...more

I've been a Shayla Black fan for quite some time now. I fell in love with her words the moment I started reading her books, so to say I was excited about this would be an understatement. I fell in love with Wicked Lovers first, it was my gateway into Shayla Black's books
Wicked Lovers has been a favorite series of mine for a while now, and Devoted to Love I started reading last year and both were incredible so have these two worlds merge is a dream come true.

I'm new to both the Wicked Lovers and Devoted Lovers worlds. I had no reference point, but let me tell you I didn't need one and I am now a HUGE fan of this Wicked & Devoted series!! Wicked As Sin is a hot, edge of your seat, emotional, grab you hard and you won't be able to stop until the very end read!

It does end on a cliffhanger...GAH!! I can hardly wait for part two because this first part of the duet is angsty and full of suspense so I'm full of anticipation for what the second half will ho

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

This is the first in a duet giving us One-Mile and Brea's story from the inside, and it is everything I could have hoped for ... and (thankfully) not long to wait until the second book hits our e-readers!
For fans of Shayla Black's Wicked and Devoted series' this will be like stepping back into a world full of friends, danger and sorchingly hot passion, a complete pleasure. For newbies, I think it will probably make you

I have to say that I have not read the Wicked Lovers series but I have read the Devoted Lovers series. Bringing both of those series together with what I would call smaller characters (at the time) is one way to bring them into the spotlight.
Pierce “One-Mile” Walker is the man to call when you need the kill shot. He worked for the military for years and was a sniper and that is where he got his name from. He keeps his heart under wraps and doesn't give it to anyone. But when he meets Brea Bell,

Brea is the daughter of a preacher who has been sheltered her whole life which has allowed her to remain innocent and at times naïve. She has always done what is expected of her and all she wants is to get married and have her own family but until that happens she has her best friend Cutter who also happens to be Pierce’s teammate even if they aren’t friends.

Pierce is as dark as Brea is innocent. He is a sniper who has seen and done things that she can’t even imagine. He is confident and assured

Holy smokes was this book just one big pile of suspense! The first book of the duet means that there is a lot of angst and a lot of questions and a lot of suspense waiting for the conclusion. Pierce is so freaking HOT, I want to just keep reading more and more about this man. Brea was not exactly my favorite, but we have a whole 'nother book coming up to answer all of the questions that we have. It is a duet so there definitely is a cliffhanger, but the next book is coming out in April so finger ...more

Not my first read by the author and she actually was one of my firsts many years ago. I have always loved her books and writing style. I am always honest and even if that means a favorite author of mine wrote something I did not enjoy reading. I think I was more frustrated/annoyed during this book than anything.

I was given this book for an honest review.

"One Mile" - aka Pierce, is a hard man. He's been hardened by life and by his job. As a newer member of an elite group of people who do the jobs that nobody wants to talk about, One-Mile is known as the antisocial one. He's a mountain of a man with emotions that run deep.

This is the first book in the Wicked & Devoted series, and the story of Pierce, and Brea. Pierce is the sexy sniper, and Brea is the sweet preachers daughter, couldn't be more opposites, but they can't deny their chemistry. This was a great read, the character are well written, and kept me engaged the whole book. This book was intense, emotional, steamy, dramatic, action-packed, and suspenseful. I can't wait to read the second book. ...more

This one was full of cliches and predictable, yet I couldn't stop reading it. I wanted to know why One-Mile was like he was, what was it that appealed to Brea, other than forbidden fruit. I also was waiting for One-Mile to find out that Brea and Cutter were only friends and what his reaction was going to be. Guess a lot of that will have to wait for the next book. ...more

I was pulled right into this story. This is a 2-part story so be prepared to get both parts. The story has laughs, secrets, and heartbreak.

This is Brea Bell and Pierce “One-Mile” Walker’s story. Brea is with her best friend and get introduced to Pierce as a girlfriend to protect her from everything that is Pierce. But the chemistry is off the charts no matter how forbidden it is or should be. The want and need are both there. Will they resist? But as a crisis brings them together his past

There was nothing I didn't like about this book except Cutter. He's a tool. From the moment they met i knew they were meant for each other. Good girls like Brea can't resist them bad boys like One-Mile. I can't wait to finish their story. ...more
