Review - Wicked for You by Shayla Black

Title: Wicked for You
Series: Wicked Lovers #10
Author: Shayla Black
Release Date: October 6, 2015

Another "searingly sexy"* romance awaits in the latest Wicked Lovers novel from the New York Times bestselling author of His to Take.

Ever since he rescued her from a dangerous kidnapper, Mystery Mullins has wanted Axel Dillon. When he returned her to her Hollywood father and tabloid life, she was grateful…and a little in love. Mystery wasn’t ready to let Axel go, even after the soldier gently turned her away because, at nineteen, she was too young.

Now, six years later, Mystery is grown, with a flourishing career and a full life—but she’s still stuck on Axel. Disguised, she propositions him in a bar, and the night they spend together is beyond her wildest dreams. Mystery steels herself to walk away—except the sheets are barely cold when her past comes back to haunt her.

Once he realizes Mystery isn’t the stranger he thought, Axel is incensed and intrigued. But when it’s clear she’s in danger, he doesn’t hesitate to become her protector—and her lover—again. And as the two uncover a secret someone is willing to kill for, Axel is determined to claim Mystery’s heart before a murderer silences her for good.

Wicked for You by Shayla Black was a mysterious, sexy, fun story! 

Mystery Mullins is in love with Axel Dillion. The love doesn’t wane just because of time or distance. Years later, after moving to London, Mystery returns to the US to take care of family business and see Axel…

Let me say, this book was anything but predictable. Mystery was bit of a mystery and so was Axel. I certainly fell in love with him from the beginning. Mystery was a strong, young female who, even though she was a bit lost, seemed to be able to take care of herself. Axel was insanely hot, driven and knew what he wanted, especially in the bedroom. Mystery was willing to learn more about those kinks in order to be with Axel. 

I love that Shayla writes books that keep me hot, bothered and on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t figure out the whodunit early, and that kept me reading as fast as I can. Wicked for You is a page turner for sure!

Six years ago, Axel Dillon rescued Mystery Mullins from her kidnappers only to steal her heart in the process. Too young and too vulnerable, Axel returned Mystery safely to her Hollywood father and Hollywood lifestyle. But neither forgot the other.

Six years later, under dubious circumstances, Mystery is determined to get Axel in her bed, if only for one night. One night of passion so she can hopefully forget him and move on. But when her past comes back to haunt her, Mystery finds herself unable to walk away—and neither will Axel.

Axel never forgot the beautiful girl he rescued in the desert. But knowing she was just too young, he couldn’t take advantage of her, no matter how much he wanted her. Now, after finding out the mysterious redhead who left his bed wasn’t just some random encounter, Axel will let nothing get in his way from claiming Mystery once and for all. Especially now that her life is in danger—again. He’s not leaving her side…even when she tries to leave him.

Wow. Just wow. Dominant, alpha men just do it for me—Axel ticks off all the boxes. I love how he’s able to get right down to the heart of the matter and delve deep into Mystery’s head. He’s the ideal Dominant and boyfriend. Mystery is a strong heroine too. She’s not afraid to go after what she wants, she’s just not quite sure what to do with Axel once she has him. 

Neither one have had the best role models for relationships. But they sure do get each other “in between the sheets” and those sheets are smokin’ when they’re done. I love this series. I can’t get enough of them. When is the next one releasing?
