My Wicked Heart
I am the prized daughter of a family known for their name.
We always knew it couldn't work, but that didn't mean we wouldn't try.
But when we did, it was all torn apart.
He was locked away.
And I was helpless to stop the mass destruction that followed.
He was wicked to my heart.
And just like poison, the effects can be dangerous. ...more

My Wicked Heart wasted no time getting right back into the swing of things. With a cliffhanger in My Beautiful Poison that was heartburn worthy inducing, I needed answers and I needed them now. These were two people who were from the opposite side in every way and somehow, they managed to find each other, create a bond, fall in love and be awakened by secrets and tragedy that would change them both.
I have been not so patiently for this book to come out and when I tell you that my excitement ...more
"Do you think we were broken before we even started?"
This book hurt me sooo much!!! So much!!!
After reading the first part of this beautiful, but poisoned as it seems story, I was anticipating the second part so much and OMG!!!! I've read it in one go, mostly because after a big twist in the middle that hurt me irreparably, i needed some kind of redemption for our heroes...
What I can not deny is that from the very first moment I had an ache ...more

It's been 5 long years since Rylee's seen the love of her life, August. She's moved past whatever it was they had (or so she tries to convince herself), thinking she'll never see him again. Then one day he's just there. No one's more surprised to see him than she is. She's got something to tell him, something she had tried to tell him after he left, but she literally couldn't find him. She hired private investigators and everything, and neve ...more
A love that could never be severed, or so she thought. When he left and she couldn’t find him, she never thought she would see him again. It’s been five years but she’s never stopped loving ...more
Rylee proved how strong she was as a sin ...more
This story generated heart-wrenching emotion throughout as it wove a captivating, angst-filled drama with a touch of romantic suspense. In book 2, Rylee and August tread upon their rocky relationship; Rylee ever giving, ever demonstrative in her love of August, and August, emotionally closed. Home events have made him into the man he doesn't want to be, but have been compelled to become, and all the while believing he is not good enough for Rylee. What happens as his belief in his unwo ...more
The emotions that flowed when reading this book were often too much. Rylee was left reeling from August's departure in book one and at the start of this book. When we fast forward five years. We are totally surp ...more
Waiting on this second book had me anxious and excited for what was to come. One thing I really enjoyed was getting to know Rylee and her group of friends and family with one notable exception her mother. T L Smith never fails to draw me into her stories her writing intrigues me and keeps me guessing.
For me there was an air of melancholy sadness about this instalment that was there for a large part of the book. I loved the passionate relationship between August and Rylee in book one, I ...more
HIghly recommend!!! ...more
This is book two in the “Wicked Poison” series and can not be read as a stand alone. Also, this does not end in a cliffhanger.
Wow!! Ok the first book had me dying. I needed this book like immediately! I got behind due to the move and then the ice storm and you all know the story. Anyway so I just picked this book up yesterday. I was so mad when I had to put it down. I just kept thinking about it. I love this series so hard!!
Now, you start off exactly where book one ends. Shit is goin ...more
I’ve seen books of this series so much lately so I knew I needed to dive into this headfirst ASAP.
And I wasn’t disappointed. The first book had me on the edge of my seat by the end and I almost threw my phone till I remembered I had the arc for this and dived straight in. This book definitely didn’t hold anything back! The emotional ride was definitely worth it and my favourite part, and yes it was my favourite despite having my emotions go through the ringer.
The two characte ...more
My Wicked Heart is the second book in the Wicked Poison duet. You need to read My Beautiful Poison first if you haven’t. After that cliffhanger I was not so patiently waiting for the conclusion. I always find myself reading Ms Smith’s books into the wee hours of the morning. I just can’t put them down. I loved the volatile relationship between August and Rylee in the first book but it was lack lustre and di ...more
This book starts out utterly heartbreaking for not only August but Rylee too. As days pass August only pushes Rylee further away until one night leaves them breathless and naked. When Rylee wakes up the next day August is gon ...more
My Wicked Heart by T.L. Smith had everything I was looking for! Sensuality, suspense, drama, twists, and angst. Everything I crave and expect in one of T.L.’s books. She even threw in a bit of darkness that I never knew I needed before finding one of her books!
A flawlessly written sequel about an ex-con and a ‘rich girl’, their story ended so suddenly in the last installment with quite a cliffhanger. I was dying to see what happened next. The story picks up telling how their lives were both cha ...more
It may have been chance, or it may have been fate that has August’s world colliding with Rylee once again. Seeing her again wasn’t ...more
I knew we would get one, but by hell I was not expecting it to be at the extent it was. From beginning rigjt to the end.
I felt for Rylee in this book, I really did. My heart hurt for her, and even after a revelation and answers were answered (which I had an inkling about) I still hurt for her.
She deserved so much love and happiness, and thsts all I wanted to see from her and August.
I loved everything about this book, I really did. It kept my ...more
The emotions T.L Smith ripped from my soul were tremendous! I don't know how I made it through this book without throwing my kindle but I did, I came so darn close because there were so many WTF moments I thought my mind was going to explode. I went from loving August to loathing him back to loving him AND back again. This author is the queen of the anti hero while making you love him in the end no matter what ...more
I am completely in love with August.
He seriously owns a piece of it!
Guys, My Wicked Heart is the conclusion of August and Rylee’s story, and it’s devastatingly beautiful.
"I had you for a moment, so I could have her for a lifetime".
The perfect mix of all the angst, heartache, fear, agony, apprehension, suspense, hope, belief, anticipation, trust and love. August and Rylee yet again held me captive, taking me on j...more
Book 1 ends in a cliffhanger, one that will have you one clicking this book and devouring it. But a word of warning....
You expect to come back, see him appear? For him to be ok? For her to be ok? For his story to come to light? What he went through? You expect a few surprises along the way? Some feels? And all the other stuff?
Well don't! T.L.Smith has outdone herself and completely blindsided me. The first chapt ...more
There were a lot of things I didn't expect to happen, so it was just one surprise after another. August and Rylee undoubtedly do not have an easy journey. I mean, they barely just started, and t ...more
This story isn't perfect, it isn't sunshine and rainbows. It's sad and nerve-wracking. Let's not forget about the twists. There were a couple of things I didn't see coming.
Very interesting story. It broke my heart and put it ...more
5 years later he returns with no intention of seeing Rylee and with every intention of leaving again but he is stopped in his tracks.
Side note: I’m interested in Beckham’s story.
