When I first read the blurb of Wicked Reunion, I was intrigued and always was a sucker for second chance romance books. I did not read the first book, but I was advised that this book can be read as a standalone since it focused on a different member of the band, Wicked White. As much as I loved the premise of the book, I did not fully love this book because I did not love the hero as much as I wanted. A secret part of me was rooting for the hero's brother, Wes to get the girl and I wished that he did. Well, maybe more like I wanted to read Wes story more than Jared's.

Wicked Reunion deals with two childhood best friends who easily transitioned into boyfriend and girlfriend. London was madly in love with Jared Kraft and would follow him to the ends of the world. She was perfectly content on wherever Jared is. But when tragedy hits, Jared lost control of his life and left London. Five years of distance away from London, his mom, his hometown, and his brother, Wes. Within those five years, Wes has been there to pick up the pieces that Jared left behind. He was there to take care of his mother after their father died during a military operation and was there for London when her heart was completely shattered and devastated when Jared left her. Wes has always been in love with London and so as a reader my heart ached for him when suddenly Jared appeared back into town. Given the title, it was definitely a wicked reunion for Jared, London and Wes.

Why the three stars? Well, for one London was the quintessential doormat for Jared. She was weak and let Jared walk all over her especially when he was going through his rough periods. I also didn't like the way she treated Wes towards the end. And Jared, his arrogance within the band already made me disliked him. I think the only redeeming part of the story was Wes. Yes, the secondary character stole my heart. I wanted him to get the girl. I wanted him to be happy. I was secretly hoping the author would do a plot twist and make London see who has been by her side the whole entire time. But a part of me is relieved he didn't get London, because he deserved a woman who treated him so much better. While this book ends on a happy note for London and Jared, I think I was more curious as to what happened to Wes than what happened to Jared.
