Wicked Steps - Cory Cyr

Published Date: March 25, 2016
Genre: Romance/Erotica
Synopsis: Strong language, explicit sexual situations, M/F. F/F. 18+

If anyone had asked ten years ago, I never would have imagined I’d be a thirty-five-year-old widow today.

I could tell you I married Hartman Wick out of love, but it’s complicated. We were friends. He was dying. And he needed me. He also made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Of course, I agreed with the very best of intentions. But we all know what the road to hell is paved with.

All I ever dreamed of was owning my own gallery. A place where my best friend and I could introduce the masses to inspiring and new artists. Hartman promised me the deed to the gallery, wealth, and security for the rest of my life. 

Instead, I find myself in a war with his estranged son Kieran—my stepson and one of the most prolific painters, known for his erotic shock art. He’s been plotting revenge against his father for years, and now that Daddy’s dead, he’s seized the opportunity.

Between the constant battles, heated exchanges, and threats of blackmail, I find myself inexplicitly drawn to this twenty-four-year old. He’s beautiful, seductive, arrogant, and evil. Not only is he a gifted artist, but he’s certainly inherited some of his father’s more unsavory traits. He truly is a Wick.

But then he takes things too far and pushes me to my breaking point. I’ve had enough. In retaliation, I make a plan. 

And I almost feel sorry for him—almost. I’m sure, even as a child, he was never read a single fairy tale. Poor bastard. 

He has no idea how truly wicked a stepmother can be.

Wicked is truly wicked.

This is the first book that I read from Cory Cyr and I loved every single moment of this book. This is one of those questionable books that you love to hate and hate to love characters. Both Ellery and Kieran will make this book the best that it can be.

Though this was my first time reading Cory Cyr, I have read her other book synopses and realized that she likes to go down a more non-traditional route where always the characters had an age gap and the woman was always older. I felt that this was an interesting take on today's books because you do not often see that.

Let's focus on Kieran for a moment. It cannot be debated that he does indeed have his father's erratic behavior and wicked sense. Whether it comes from the family name or the family itself, one always becomes wicked when involved with them.

I found myself invigorated by the fresh take on books and how erotically wicked this book was. Make sure that you understand that this book involves shock art and plenty of dirty words exchanged between the characters. Will you take the chance to read this 4 out of 5 star book?

Blog you later, awesome book nerds.
