We’ve been best friends for a long time. Always my protector, it only made sense that we’d end up partners at the Oceanside Police Department. Now, with a killer on the loose, possibly targeting me, emotions are high and feelings are surfacing that I’ve never felt before. Since the day I met her, quivering and scared under the jungle gym, I knew she would be a substantial part of my life. The years passed and I felt myself falling. With Skye seemingly the target of some sick fucks obsession, I will do whatever it takes to keep her safe. But first, she needs to know how I really feel about her.
A killer is on the loose, Skye and my sisters’ lives are on the line.
Friendship. Love. A Secret Obsession. Murder.
If it came down to choosing between the people you love, could you make the choice?
Suspense, suspense, and then more suspense is what you get when you read Love’s Wicked Ways. This thriller had so many different twists with the right amount of romance built in this story. I knew Colin was easy to fall for when I started to read about him. All alpha, strong, caring, and a protector would be his best qualities. He also loves hard. Having to hide a huge emotional secret for most of his life has been eating away at him as he gets older. With the current events that is happening, he finally puts his heart out on his sleeve for Skye.
Skye is Colin’s best friend and partner as a detective. As you read in the blurb, danger is all around and she is trying to prove that she is strong and can take care of herself. She does not show any weakness and will face her fears, even if that is with the killer that has been on the loose. Finally realizing what she has with Colin is real, she has to go through the fight of her life to get the life she always deserved.. Love without limits.
The sexy scenes in the book will make the room you’re in hot and steamy! I was intrigued with this story. I had argued with myself time and time thinking I knew who the killer was. My instincts knew, but I second guessed myself because I could not see how it would make sense. So gear up with this book readers! The ending will shock the hell out of you. A great suspense romantic book by two amazing authors!
“Don’t play stupid Skye! Us, I want to talk about us.”“Fucking Christ Colin, there is no us! What do I have to do to get it through to you?”
“Say you don’t love me.”
“What? Don’t be fucking ridiculous.”
“Say it Skye. If there’s really no us, tell me right now that you don’t love me. That you don’t feel the same fucking way about me that I feel about you.”
I take a step towards her.
“I’m not going to say that because it isn’t true. I do love you. But like a friend.”
“Just a friend?” I ask as I take another step closer to her, forcing her to take another step backwards, her back against the wall.
Our close proximity is getting to her, I can see it in her breathing and her body language. Leaning in, I brush my lips against hers.
