WOOP, hello everyone, I am back again with my final review of the Wicked series, it’s Wicked Girl (#3) and you can read my review for book 1 and 2 here.
I want to start by saying that this book had a happy ending which gives me life, I feel like all 3 books led up to this point and it gave me so much joy that Haley and Jax finally got their shit together!
I didn’t think that Piper Lawson could kick the sex up another notch from the previous book, but she did. As usual, it didn’t feel cheap and was written so well.
Just like book 2 we started to feel more emotions with one, it wasn’t just a teenager following a rock star around anymore. There were some really grown up themes going on. I did feel that Piper Lawson could have addressed these more and included them within the story rather than just brushing them to the side – it did frustrate me a little bit that they weren’t discussed after the initial mention.
I particularly enjoyed how we got to see Jax and Annie, it was a refreshing change to see Jax in a different light, and to watch him grow right from book 1 through to now was something that Piper Lawson managed to do effortlessly. I really enjoyed their interactions towards the end, when Annie really opened up to her Dad.
There were a couple of points that I felt there was a pointless backstory, but it did come to a head in the end, and made sense. I just wish that it had been explained/built upon better earlier in the book so we didn’t feel like it was time wasting or filling space.
The happy ending oh my goodness my heart, it made me so happy and I feel it rounded off the book series perfectly!
Hey everyone! I’m back again with a review of book 2 in the Wicked series by Piper Lawson, you can read my review of book 1 right here!
I loved this one even more than the first one! We finally got more of an insight into Haley and Jax’s lives, and it helped the story to make more sense, it built a foundation that I felt was missing.
We got to see more of Serena and Haley’s friendship in this book, and I am here for it! They bounce off each other so well and the banter between the two of them made me laugh throughout the book! It was nice to see that the author could focus on more the friendship aspects too.
Bad Girl was certainly not without its twists and it made the book grow up, it suddenly became a lot more serious and prevented it from turning into a trashy romance novel. There were points I literally gasped out loud with things that had gone on!
The sexual chemistry started to grow even further between Jax and Haley, Lawson does a really good job of building it up and letting us down again just when we think we’re getting to a juicy bit! It definitely is a page turner in this respect because you keep thinking will they/won’t they…
And when we did get to the juicy bits the author didn’t make them feel cheap or overdone, it was steamy and well written, the tension finally came to a head and it was worth waiting for. One thing Lawson does is write incredible sex scenes without them seeming cringey.
On the whole, Bad Girl (Wicked #2) was excellent, it built on the foundations that the first book introduced and it really grew into itself, going from a teenage dream to something that had substance and gave the reader a range of emotions.
Until next time, Em xxx
Hey guys I’m back again with a review of Good Girl by Piper Lawson, which is book 1 of the Wicked series. And here is my review!
Let me start by saying that this book was my teenage dream written on paper. The thought of getting to travel with a rock star and be behind the scenes on the tour was literally my goal as a teenager, so this book was literally perfect to me.
The plot line was amazing, I loved the way everything panned out and developed, it didn’t feel rushed once and had a real slow burn feel to it. If anything that made it feel more believable and relatable as a real relationship.
Whilst there weren’t many sexual scenes in the book there was a LOT of unresolved tension which the Piper Lawson did an excellent job of writing, it didn’t feel cheap or overdone at any point.
I feel that we were let down a little bit with the lack of history in the book, it was very much in the now and we didn’t get chance to learn anything about Haley’s background. Which I was disappointed about as it played a large part of the story!
Character wise I love Jax and Haley, but I wish we got the same depth to some of the other characters as we did to them, some others were mentioned just as much but the author didn’t give them the same attention.
I will say though they were developed enough that background to the story made sense and there were no plot holes and I do appreciate that the story was about Jax and Haley not the minor characters!
I definitely would recommend this book to anyone who will listen, I loved it and I couldn’t wait to get stuck into the next two and see where Jax and Haley ended up.
