Blaine Wicked is used to women doing as he says in and out of the bedroom. Find out happens when he falls for the one woman who won't submit to his wicked ways in the newest insanely sexy, deeply emotional, and laugh-out-loud funny standalone romance by New York Times bestselling author Melissa Foster.
Blaine Wicked can spot trouble a mile away. As the eldest of five and raised in a Dark Knights biker family, he has always been a protector. Rescuing a stripper from a bad situation comes with the territory, regardless of the hell the mouthy, slightly awkward, and seriously hot leggy blonde gives him for it. She’s far too innocent to bend to his wicked ways, but the more he learns about her, the harder it is for him to walk away.
Forensic scientist Reese Wilder never imagined herself as the entertainment at a bachelor party, but she’d do anything to keep food on the table for her teenage sister. With their mess of a mother in rehab—Third time’s a charm, right?—Reese is stuck paying off their mother’s debt to a dealer and trying to make ends meet. Reese has had it rough, and she knows better than to rely on anyone for help, much less a pushy biker with piercing blue eyes who probably has dozens of women at his beck and call.
The more flames Reese throws, the more determined Blaine is to walk through them. The closer he gets, the hotter they burn—and the more curious she becomes. But Blaine Wicked has the power to torch Reese’s walls to embers, and with her sister’s well-being at stake, that’s a risk she can’t afford to take.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.

This book may be unsuitable for people under 17 years of age due to its use of sexual content, drug and alcohol use, and/or violence.


His Wicked Ways gives us Blaine Wicked, the eldest and most protective one of all the Wicked siblings. Blaine is commitment shy and one ventured deeper into the story the reason is made clear. So when he rescued Reese Wilder from a treacherous situation, the last thing he expected was to fall head over heels for her.

Reese has a lot on her plate, one of which involves taking care of her fifteen-year-old sister. Her need to make extra money led to a situation, where she needed rescuing. Now, when Blaine learned the reason for her being in such a situation, he amped up his mission to help and protect her, despite her many objections.


“He’s like a boomerang. No matter how many times I tried to send him away, he kept coming back.”

This book was a delight to read. Once again, Foster delivered a story with which readers can relate. A story of love, healing, family friendships and overcoming adversity. This story shows that family doesn’t necessarily consist of persons related to each other. Instead, it’s made of a group of people offering support and love. A fact Reese learnt when the Wicked embraced her and her teenage sister, Colette.

Of all the Wicked brothers, Blaine is the most overprotective. When it comes to protecting those he loves, he’s rather zealous. To the point that one may consider it overbearing. Reese is a great heroine. Strong, determined, independent, caring and stubborn. She had a hard time accepting Blaine’s help due to her issues of trust. Besides, men don’t normally offer to help without an ulterior motive. She would learn in due time that Blaine’s actions were coming from a place of honesty, integrity and compassion.

“He’d burn down the world for the people he loves.”

Ah! The romance will have readers swooning. Blaine claims he’s not a romantic, but I beg to differ. The way he treats Reese belies that statement. The things he did for her, literally had me swooning. He may be a badass biker, but when he loves, he loves hard. It warmed my heart to see how he accepted Colette like his own sibling, snarky behaviour and all.

Whenever one picks up one of Melissa’s books, one can expect not only a wonderful romance, but also humour and fun times with family and friends. She did not disappoint in His Wicked Ways. 

His wicked Ways is another great addition to this awesome series, and one which I highly recommend for romance readers.
