Scorching heat, laugh-out-loud humor, and swoon-worthy moments abound in this sexy new standalone romance by New York Times and Wall Street Journal bestselling author Melissa Foster.
What happens when the player gets played?
Sidney Carver has a big problem, and he goes by the name of Dwayne “Gunner” Wicked: six-plus feet of muscular, motorcycle-riding, animal-loving deliciousness. Gunner is her boss, roommate, and best friend. They’ve seen each other through life-altering injuries and unimaginable losses, and they work side by side at Wicked Animal Rescue, fulfilling their passion to save animals. Unfortunately, Gunner is also the man Sidney is in love with, and he’s the ultimate player. As her former military comrade, Gunner sees her as his buddy—just one of the guys. Sidney is at her wit’s end, ready to risk the friendship and job she adores for a chance at forever love with the man she can’t live without. Like any good marine, she comes up with a mission. Enter Operation Get My Guy.
Gunner loves his life. He has a family he adores, a brotherhood that always has his back, and a host of willing women to warm his bed. As the owner of Wicked Animal Rescue, he saves lives and works with his best friend, Sid, the coolest woman on the planet. When Sid concocts a crazy plan to win his cousin’s heart, Gunner reluctantly agrees to be her wingman.
Practices heat up as roommates become teammates. Let the wicked fun begin…
No cheating. No cliffhangers. Guaranteed to melt panties and leave readers hopelessly in love with the sinfully delicious Wickeds.
I've said it many times, I love Melissa Foster. Her books are auto-reads for me. This time around we've got a sexy as sin friends to lovers romance between Sidney and her obliviously handsome best friend, Gunner. Why is he oblivious, you ask? Well, she's in love with him and he's clueless. For that reason, I'm going to focus on him for this review. Melissa's heroes come in all forms. They've been bikers, artists, ranchers, clothing designers... You name it, they've probably been there. The best part is that no matter what profession they are, they rock it 100%. Gunner, for example is a badass animal rescuer. Could he get any hotter? What sets him apart (and what sets this book apart) is that he is absolutely clueless about Sidney's true feelings. Normally the heroes go into their book guns a-blazing for their heroine. Gunner, on the other hand, needed a little kick in the pants to get him on the right path. Once he realizes that those feelings were always there, he's a goner. That is one of the reasons why I devoured Crazy, Wicked Love. We don't see heroes like Gunner often in Melissa's world, so when one crosses my path, I fall instantly in love. And that, my friends, is why can never say no to Melissa's books.
