Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds.

If you think bikers are all the same, you haven’t met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. Their stories are told in the same loving, passionate voice readers have come to adore in Melissa’s other series. Some of the Wickeds’ love stories will be hilariously fun and deeply emotional, others will tear at your heartstrings and include injections of humor, but they will all leave you wishing you could climb between the pages and join them!

When the Dark Knights at Bayside and the cast of Bayside Summers collide, sparks fly, and trouble—or maybe love—is not far behind.

What do a cocky biker and a businesswoman who has sworn off dating bad boys have in common? According to Chloe Mallery, not much.

Justin came into the Wicked family after a harsh upbringing by a thieving father. He’s gone through a lot to become a true Wicked, and he’s made them proud. Now he’s ready to show the woman he loves exactly what type of man he is. But Chloe has worked hard to move past her difficult upbringing, and she’s wary of getting involved with a man who looks like he’s walked right out of it. When tragedy strikes, will their trying pasts draw them together, or will Justin’s protective nature be too much for Chloe’s independent heart to accept?

What's this? A new Melissa Foster series? Yes please! If you've ever read one of Melissa's romances then you know how much of an emotional pull they can have. Well, things have been rough for me lately so you can imagine how many tissues I needed while reading A Little Bit Wicked, especially scenes with a tiny kitten named Snowflake. To be completely honest, after losing my precious cat Snowball, I almost couldn't continue reading this one after seeing Gunner with his kitten. But I pushed through and by the end of the book I was glad I did. I think seeing familiar faces helped a lot. 

A Little Bit Wicked is a romance between two unlikely characters. Justin, a bad boy biker, has had a thing for Chloe from the moment their eyes met. Sure it took over a year to gain her trust, but to him it was well worth the wait. He patiently broke down her misconceptions and helped her build her trust. Chloe has had a rough life. Watching her mom bring in man after man, she's had to protect herself and her sister from men like Justin. Or so she thought. Once she got to know the man behind the bad boy attitude, she was all in. Together their love knows no bounds and I'll have fun seeing them in the future.

As with every Melissa Foster book I've read, I loved A Little Bit Wicked. It made me swoon, giggle, tear up... Every emotion under the sun. Yeah I almost didn't read it for personal reasons, but I'm so glad I did. With Melissa, not only do you get to fall in love with different couples in each of her books, you also get to catch up with old friends. A Little Bit Wicked is the first book in a new series, so it might be a bit confusing if it's your first Melissa Foster book. Don't let that persuade you from not reading it. Trust me, once you've read one of her books you'll be hooked. What's not to love? Bad boys, strong heroines, sizzling chemistry, and fabulous writing.
