Review: 5 STARS!!

Oh my gosh, this book was AMAZING!!! Vicious was heart pounding, exhilarating, sexy & darkly sensual.

Emilia was such a sweet character, but she also had fire in her veins. She stood up to Vicious and didn't take his crap. She was immensely attracted to him right from the beginning, but she was so innocent and she never knew his true feelings when they were teenagers. I felt so bad for her because of how mean Vicious was in the beginning and she just was so lost and didn't understand why he acted the way he did. Emilia's character is one that I love. She may be innocent and beneath others, but to me, she is a hard worker, dedicated to her sister, she is her own person and doesn't change for anyone. Emilia is the type of woman that draws people in and that is exactly what she did to Vicious, she just didn't know it until later.

Vicious was mean but oh so sexy. Seriously, I wanted to not like him because of how mean he was, but I just couldn't. When I got to read the chapters in his POV, it made me love him that much more. He put on a facade for everyone, unless you were a person he truly loved and cared about, but then again, Vicious doesn't know what love is. Vicious will make your panties wet, just a warning. He is such a good dirty talker and the things that he does to Emilia is just off the charts sexy. I love the bond between Vicious and his 3 best friends. That bond is the closest thing that Vicious has to a family and Emilia is the only thing besides his 3 best friends that he has ever truly loved.

The passion between Vicious and Emilia was intense and vivid and sexy. Their bond started when they were young and only grew throughout the years and throughout the book. This story is one of my favorites by L.J. Shen and I cannot wait for the other books in this series!!

“You’re pissing me off,” she said quietly, her eyes still searching my face.

“And that’s turning me on,” I retorted, my voice flat. “So you might wanna tone down the hate glares if you don’t wanna find yourself being fucked on this desk with the blinds still open.” 

I was still staring at my screen, working on the merger deal I was eager to get signed before Christmas, but I could see from my peripheral that she had paled. I liked how—once again—I’d gotten under her skin. Quickly.

“You’re disgusting,” she muttered, still staring at me—but not in a way that suggested she was appalled. 

I cracked my neck, opening my browser and checking the stocks on the screen, skimming through the greens and the reds. “That may well be, but I’m balls deep in your fucking head, Help, and there’s nothing you can do about it.”

Her eyes glittered with rage, and fuck, I was so hard, and fuck, she was so beautiful. This was so on. I was going to fuck Dean’s ex-girlfriend, use her for my personal needs, and toss her away when I was done.

And after choosing the wrong guy, there was no doubt in my mind, she deserved it too. 

“You just gave Floyd a lecture about the inter-office fraternization policy. No mixing business and pleasure.” She leaned forward. Her elbow touched my finger accidentally, and she jerked it away. 

I met her halfway, erasing the space between us across the desk. “Correction—guys like Floyd won’t give you pleasure. Men like me would. Besides, the man likes Arrow,” I drawled, as if this alone was a reason to fire him. 

To me, it was.

“You know what your problem is, Vicious? You still haven’t decided if you hate me or like me. That’s why you act like this every time I’m around other men.” There wasn’t a trace of embarrassment in her voice. She owned up to this. 

What she didn’t know was that I knew exactly how I felt about her.

I hated her, but was attracted to her. It was really that simple.

“You know what I feel right now, Ms. LeBlanc? I feel like you need to pack a fucking bag and start making the necessary arrangements. You’re coming with me to California, whether you like it or not.”
