    3.5 STARS He would stop at nothing, burn down the world—whatever it took—to remove the obstacles between them until he called her his for good. The much awaited conclusion to Brea and One-Mile's story is finally here and it was fantastic! One Mile has been a character that I've been salivating since he first made an appearance as a secondary character. Admittedly, Brea wasn't a character that hit my radar with her overload of sweet innocence. Then I read Wicked Ever After (One-Mile and 3.5 STARS He would stop at nothing, burn down the world—whatever it took—to remove the obstacles between them until he called her his for good. The much awaited conclusion to Brea and One-Mile's story is finally here and it was fantastic! One Mile has been a character that I've been salivating since he first made an appearance as a secondary character. Admittedly, Brea wasn't a character that hit my radar with her overload of sweet innocence. Then I read Wicked Ever After (One-Mile and Brea, part two) and I realized there may be something more to Brea then meets the eye at first. Two things happened in this book: 1. Brea seriously grew on me 2. I decided I no longer want Cutter to get hit by a bus Now look, if you've read the first book of this duet, then you know why I say that. I hated Cutter and his treatment of One Mile. He was an a-hole with a capital A. Luckily in this book he finally begins to see beyond the first impression he had of One Mile. Break finally grows a backbone. She really comes into her own in this book and I loved watching this happen. I loved the way that she found her voice and learned to speak what she wants and go after it. I love Brea and One Mile together. The man is utterly obsessed with her. He's crude and rude but he worships the ground his woman walks on and then talks dirty to her behind closed doors. Swoon! There's plenty of action mixed into this to really spice things up. I particularly loved the way that things get resolved at the end. Admittedly my only quibble with the story is that it just didn't grab me as much as the first book. I was a bit bored in parts and found myself skimming a bit. Ultimately this was still a fantastic conclusion to one of my most anticipated books and I highly recommend if you're looking for something steamy with an uber alpha and plenty of action.

    The conclusion to Brea and One-Mile's story is finally here and I couldn't be happier with the way things went. This was one heck of a roller-coaster ride but I honestly didn't want it to end. They say oil and water don't mix because they are opposites but man when it comes to One-Mile and Brea that saying doesn't hold true because these two are complete opposites but they are perfect together, almost as if they were made to fit together like a puzzle piece.

Like the first book, Wicked Ever After has a lot going on and although not a particularly long book, Ms. Black certainly packed a lot into it. This book was hot, steamy, gripping and suspenseful. In fact there were times that I was on the edge of my seat as the action heated up. Not only was the suspense riveting but at times it was intense and emotional as danger again reared it’s ugly head. I was fully invested in this story from the first to the last chapter. All in all this was a captivating read with strong writing and characters that you cannot help but relate too,in fact even Cutter grew on me. I cannot wait for the next book in the series as from the final chapter, it sounds intriguing.

    After enjoying the first part of Brea and One-Mile’s story, I was eager to dive into Wicked Ever After. I had high hopes of how their story would come together, and I was not disappointed. Although the main storyline of this one I saw coming early in the first book, it did not take away my enjoyment of this one. There was plenty of drama and action to keep me turning the pages, and once I started I was happy to devour the story in a single sitting.

There was plenty of drama and action to keep me turning the pages, and once I started I was happy to devour the story in a single sitting. With this one, there was some aspects of the book that left me wishing I had read other books by the author first. It was not enough to take away my enjoyment, but I certainly feel some aspects of the story will be most enjoyed by people who have read the connected stories. I’d already planned to read more, but the things I got to see in this one left me even more curious. The only I wasn’t crazy about was the way certain elements of the suspense storyline were left hanging to be continued in the future books in the series. I expected the storyline to be closed in this duet, and as eager as I am to continue, I do wish it had been made obvious beforehand that the overall storyline would not be closed in the duet. All in all, a great conclusion to Brea and One-Mile’s story, and I cannot wait to see what the rest of the series brings.

    Wicked Ever After is the second and final part of One-Mile and Brea's story written by Shayla Black. One thing I want to say is that if you haven't read Cutter's book (Devoted to pleasure) you will get very very spoiled about what is happening there. The timelines of these two books overlap we got tons of details about the important events of that book. I have read DTP and I already knew some of the stuff that happened in this one.

The thing I liked the most about this book is that Brea grew some balls and stopped been the little girl who was overprotected by her father and best friend. She was a cool lady and I liked how she handled everything that was on her plate. I didn't like the way many people treated One Mile. He did nothing to deserve the dislike, to put it mildly especially from Cutter. It was obvious even from the previous book that he cared a lot about Brea and that he would do anything to protect her. I don't want to say anything else because I might spoil something and both characters have a lot going on in their lives and things were not easy for the two of them. I loved these two together and I loved their story. I would recommend both books without hesitation.

    The conclusion to Pierce/One-Mile and Brea's story thankfully we didn't have to wait long. We start book two where we left off with an admisson from One-Mile that shakes Brea's faith that he is the man for her. There were some things I really liked, Brea's personal growth the way she finds her voice and finally she stands up for herself made me feel slightly proud. I hated the judgemental way they treated One-Mile and struggled to see the good intentions he had.

    With high flying emotions and steamy passion, the second half of this duet delivers a wicked ride. We pick up right where book one left off. Pierce "One-Mile" Walker just confessed a life changing event leaving Brea Bell in turmoil where she only moments before had been living on a cloud of happiness.

Pierce "One-Mile" Walker just confessed a life changing event leaving Brea Bell in turmoil where she only moments before had been living on a cloud of happiness. With no time to talk or even time to come to grips with her feelings she is left in confusion for a man that has stolen her heart and no one to really talk to. Their so-called relationship up to this point has been in secret. Her best friend, Cutter Bryant, severely dislikes Pierce and her father has never met the man, but would most likely disapprove of how they have been sneaking around given he is a pastor. On top of her confusion Brea is hit with a bombshell while Pierce is away, she discovers she is pregnant, a sin in the eyes of God. She Struggles with her feelings of disappointing her father, her best friend, the small town she resides in, and lastly is Pierce going to be man she needs in the face of everything. All of these things matter greatly to Brea and coming to a solution that doesn't throw her world into a tailspin, seems almost impossible.  While Pierce is away he comes face to face with the drug lord who held him hostage and beat him within an inch of his life on his last mission. Knowing the drug lord will go after everything One-Mile holds dear, and since he has no family, the only thing close is Brea, he does the only thing he can do, once he returns he sets her free. He hates keeping her at arms length, but it's for her own protection. However, when Brea announces to the world that she's marrying Cutter Bryant One-Mile decides he's done waiting for the drug lord to come to him, he's taking out the man himself. On one, and he means no one, takes what's his especially Cutter Bryant. Wicked Ever After is a roller coaster ride. I loved watching Brea mature with those around her, growing in her self-esteem and strength. It's very empowering to witness. I also enjoyed how One-Mile softened not only for her, but those around her. They both became their best selves because they had each other. This is what makes a story worth reading.

    This book picks up where book 1 ended and it is fast-paced and doesn't slow down until the end. Pierce "One-Mile" Walker and Brea Bell are two people that are made for each other. The saying that opposites attract is so true with these two. One-Mile goes after the leader of the drug cartel and leaves Brea alone and scared.

So pick this series up, even if you haven't read the others yet, just read her stories and enjoy them. I can not wait for Zy and Tessa's story next. **I received a free copy of this book to read and review and this is my honest opinion**

    I dove into this book right after reading part 1 of Brea and Pierce's story--such the emotional rollercoaster!--knowing that Ms. Black wouldn't leave me hanging for more twists, turns, and emotions in part 2. I was definitely not wrong. Things get crazy for the couple in their second half, with them walking a minefield through a lot of dangerous obstacles--most notably, the politics of Brea's small town peers, and the threat from a mobster with a serious jones for vengeance on Pierce.

In the meantime, they're racing a merciless ticking clock while struggling to let their love grow into a sustaining relationship. As is the case with all Shayla Black reads, the balance between external and internal conflicts is seamless, sublime, and riveting--and anchored with characters that are well-developed and wonderful. Still loving the cameos from previous stories, and seeing how everyone's lives are moving along too! Such a rich, romantic, and terrific fictional world to journey into, time and time again. A wild, wicked, and wonderful ride of a read. I'm addicted to Shayla Black's colorful characters and sexy as hell stories!

I admire her strength, especially with Pierce's dangerous job and yet she is still the person she grew up as. This new series has started off with a bang and I greatly look forward to Shayla Black's next story in the series!

    This one was a bit better than the first, but fairly predictable. The most interesting thing for me was the talk that Pierce had with Brea's father at the end. He was brutally honest about the type of man he was, his past and above all else, his love for Brea. This one was a bit better than the first, but fairly predictable.

WICKED EVER AFTER should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately after the events of book one WICKED AS SIN. Wicked as Sin, and Wicked ever After run parallel to and cross over with the author’s Devoted to Pleasure (Devoted Lovers #1) Told from dual third person perspectives (Pierce and Brea) WICKED EVER AFTER continues to follow the struggling relationship between US military sniper Pierce ’One-Mile’ Walker, and preacher’s daughter /hair stylist Brea Bell. Pierce Walker works for EM Security Management but struggles with an assignment that went all to h*ll. Desperate for vengeance, Pierce will leave a heart broken Brea behind when he goes in search of Montilla, the head of the Mexican Cartel and the man who destroyed his life but all is not well within EM Security Management when a mole is suspected among one of their own. Meanwhile Brea Bell battles between head and heart when more devastating revelations affecting her life threaten her relationship with her father, prompting the narrow-minded gossips of Sunset, Louisiana to continue to bury the knife, opening wounds and breaking her heart. The relationship between Brea and Pierce struggles with secrets and lies, miscommunication, jealousy, vengeance, and time spent apart. Pierce has gone underground and rogue in the hopes of taking down the man who tortured and abused our story line hero, and in this Brea finds herself alone at a time when she needs Pierce Walker the most. Brea’s relationship with her father, and his strict religious beliefs take precedent as Brea struggles with the ramifications of her relationship with the man that she loves, a relationship she believes is now in the past. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text but I struggled with the ongoing separation between our leading couple as we were no longer up close and personal with their building relationship-in this, I felt disconnected from their growing romance. There is a large ensemble cast of colorful secondary and supporting characters including Brea’s best friend and Pierce Walker’s nemesis Cutter Bryant (Devoted to Pleasure , Devoted Lovers #1), Brea’s father Preacher Bell, her fellow workers at the local salon, and several members of EM Security Management whom we previously met in both the Wicked Lovers, and Devoted Lovers series. WICKED EVER AFTER is a story of heart break and betrayal; secrets and lies; friendship, family, hope and love. The premise is emotional and captivating; the characters are numerous, energetic, broken and wounded; the romance struggles in the face of preconceived notions, religious beliefs and time apart. www.thereadingcafe.com copy supplied for review

She turns to the only person she believes can help her, her best friend Cutter ... but he too is struggling with his life. A deal is made ... but will it ever see fruition? Has Brea really lost the only man she will ever love? Or, will Pierce return to claim his woman? Pierce, meanwhile is dealing with his own dramas ... a monumental mess that could threaten the life of Brea. Can he find and destroy the man who has torn his life apart? Will he be able to uncover the mole inside EM Security Management, who is threatening the lives of everyone around him? Can he find his way back to Brea? Pierce and Brea's relationship is a mess. They continually struggle with lies, jealousy, secrets and a huge amount of miscommunication and misunderstanding. Brea also struggles with her upbringing and how her father and the townfolk will accept her and the man she loves. I adored Brea, she grew enormously in strength in this book ... she became stronger, more determined to stand up for herself and for the man she truly desired. I fell more in love with Pierce as he story progressed, he was steadfastly resolute in what/who he wanted. Nothing was going to get in his way. When Pierce and Brea are together their passion is intense, their love for one another undeniable. Shayla Black has written an intense love story that will no doubt break your heart, but it will also inspire. It shows that two people, no matter their background or the barriers placed in front of thtem, will always find a way. Of all Shayla's stories, Wicked As Sin and Wicked Ever After would have to be my favourites. Can't wait to see what she comes up with next.

    Hmmmm I really need a minute to share with you all the feelings I have right now for Wicked Ever After. I have so many feelings. When we finished book one, we know that Pierce “One-Mile” Walker walked out on Brea due to him being needed for a mission. Book 2 picks up right were it ended. At the end of Book one you were in just as much shock as Brea. You know that the momentum of these two is going to be explosive. But there is so much unresolved between them. You are just left sitting there with Hmmmm I really need a minute to share with you all the feelings I have right now for Wicked Ever After. I have so many feelings.

At the end of Book one you were in just as much shock as Brea. You know that the momentum of these two is going to be explosive. But there is so much unresolved between them. You are just left sitting there with your mouth gaping open like a fish. My first feeling is that of anxiety. I seriously was freaking out on almost every page worried that freaking One Mile was not going to beat the Mexican Drug Lord and that something was going happen to Brea. I hated every second they were a part. I felt like that they were safer together. I felt anxiety about Brea being on her own. She didn’t feel like she could count on anyone. Every page I wanted to just give her a hug. She was so busy worried about everyone else. She needed someone to lean on not necessarily pick her up and do things for her but someone who was emotional there for her not bossing her around. Next up so much Anger! Seriously, I was pissed at her dad. I was pissed at Cutter. I was pissed at One-Mile. I was Pissed at ALL of One-Mile’s co workers. Seriously people needed to pull their heads out of the sand and help a girl out! One-Mile kind of gets a pass because he was looking for her. Finally, I have complete admiration for Brea. She got handled kind of a shit deal her first time around with a dude and she made the most of it. She got herself a backbone. She pushed back against Cutter, her dad, the nasty gossips in her town. She also came through in the big moments when it counted the most. Shayla Black has away of charging up all my emotions when I read her books. I am so invested in her characters. You never know when she is going to switch things up either. Her plots are not easy to foreshadow or pick apart. I love her books for the twist and turns you take while reading. Her stories always charge up your emotions to the point you are emotional invested in the characters. Everytime I close out one of Shayla’s books I swear the next story can not be as good as what I just finished. I loved everyone moment of this book. It is an absolute solid 5/5 star read for me. She probably deserves a little extra for the emotional rollercoasters she took me.

I worried that the first book raised expectations that wouldn't be met in the finale, but this one was great and hit all the right notes -- passion, angst, drama, romance, action and plenty of sexy times. THE STORY: At the end of the first part of Brea and One-Mile's story, the two have fallen in love, but One-Mile's job is dangerous and the people he interact with a threat to Brea. At the same time, Brea is uncertain about One-Mile's feelings and intentions. Misunderstandings abound as these two try and navigate their emotions amid the expectations of those around them. OPINION: This second part of Brea and One-Mile's story begins with a misunderstanding which sets up the conflict in the story as the players react and set up new situations that the characters need to navigate. I'm not a real fan of misunderstanding conflicts -- especially because this misunderstanding seems to easy to fix. But thankfully, the misunderstanding is resolved and the characters go on to resolve the problem situations they find themselves in. The story goes really fast and the pacing just compels the readers to gobble the book up quickly. One thing I really liked is how Pierce is such a tough guy but who is sensitive and haunted by his past. He doesn't really believe that he is good enough for Brea. He has masked his insecurities and self-loathing by his outer toughness and anti-social rudeness. I really love when an alpha hero is just completely undone by a sweet gentle heroine. I like that Brea has morals and convictions but she is not judgmental or unforgiving. She also is certainly willing to go all in when she falls in love. The prior book had a bit more action, but this part felt more emotional. WORTH MENTIONING: This book completes Brea and One-Mile's story, but there is an epilogue that sets up the next book in the series. That epilogue leaves the book with a cliffhanger for the next story, but does not disturb the HEA for Brea and One-Mile. CONNECTED BOOKS: WICKED AFTER EVER is the second part of the story of Brea and One-Mile. The first book, WICKED AS SIN, should be read first. This book also overlaps in time with DEVOTED TO PLEASURE but that book doesn't have to be read to enjoy this one. STAR RATING: I give this book 4.5 stars. NOTE: I received an eARC of this book via the author. I was not required to write a review or to write a positive review. All opinions contained herein are my own.

    I am grateful that Shayla Black quickly released the second book in the Brea and Pierce “One-Mile” duet, Wicked Ever After . I needed the end of their story quickly. Brea Bell is the town’s good girl. Her father is a preacher. He raised Brea to follow the rules and she did. Her commitment to help her father, and serve his church is important to Brea. Pierce is the exact opposite. He has the bad boy reputation and does not follow any rules. Wicked Ever After brings the readers right back I am grateful that Shayla Black quickly released the second book in the Brea and Pierce “One-Mile” duet, Wicked Ever After . I needed the end of their story quickly. Brea Bell is the town’s good girl. Her father is a preacher. He raised Brea to follow the rules and she did. Her commitment to help her father, and serve his church is important to Brea. Pierce is the exact opposite. He has the bad boy reputation and does not follow any rules. Wicked Ever After brings the readers right back to where Wicked as Sin ended. One-Mile is on a mission. Brea doesn’t know when he will be back or even if he will survive to come back. All she knows is that she loves him. They both have secrets that have the potential to end their relationship before it really gets off the ground. Pierce has a past. There is a good chance that he won’t measure up to Brea’s dad’s expectations. Can she pick only one? Moreover, Brea is afraid that her small hometown will not take kindly to the new Brea after One-Mile. I truly enjoyed this book. My heart went through all the ups and downs I expect of a Shayla Black story. I was smiling one minute then yelling at my Kindle the next. There is non-stop action to keep the pages turning, with the characters changing developing into beautiful adults who want to make a life together. One of my favorite scenes in this story is when Pierce meets Preacher Bell the first time. Their meeting is a little tense and perfect. This duet features many of the characters that I love from previous series, Wicked Lovers (my introduction to Shayla’s writing) and Wicked and Devoted. The teaser at the end has me jumping for joy, because another character I love is returning from Wicked Lovers. I cannot wait. I highly recommend this duet (the books are not standalones) to anyone who loves a tense romance with hot and sexy times.

    Gah! I couldn't get enough of One-Mile and Brea after part one and now I'm left utterly speechless. Shayla is known for her romantic suspense. It's one of the many sub-genres she nails perfectly and Wicked & Devoted books one and two are a prime example of why I love this author so much.

It's one of the many sub-genres she nails perfectly and Wicked & Devoted books one and two are a prime example of why I love this author so much. One-Mile and Brea love story is full of suspense, passion, heat, mystery, and love. the love between these two wasn't an easy one, it seems as though everything and anything that could destroy their relationship and love for each other tried to get between the two of them. One-Mile finally finds out what Brea is hiding, the secret that she's been hiding and he makes it clear that he won't let anything to anyone get in the middle of them too, that she will be his and only his. But the thing is, Brea is too focused on everyone else and making them happy even though it could cost her, her happiness. But when some truths are revealed she realizes that she needs to fight for One-Mile and their love and the life they want to share and she won't let anything get in the way. This book and this couple are EVERYTHING. I am in complete of the author right now and her ability to paint a story in my mind with her words so clearly that with ease I lose myself for hours among the pages of the book. This was the right amount of everything. The suspense and heat, mystery, and passion and fire that burned so bright between these two. This love story is all-consuming and addictive, and a story that I will come back to and re-read time and time again, as I do with all Shayla Black's work. 6 STARS!

    Shayla Black does not disappoint! This is the conclusion to the One-Mile and Brea saga and it is quite delicious. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book of this duet and this second tome is just as good. Lots of passion, suspense, and a few heart-breaking moments weave a wonderfully wicked story. There is plenty of drama for Brea and her “medical condition” – but the best part is that she has grown into quite an assertive darling. (She was a little prissy the first time around).

There is plenty of drama for Brea and her “medical condition” – but the best part is that she has grown into quite an assertive darling. (She was a little prissy the first time around). Also, it was much more meaningful having read Cutter’s book (Devoted to Pleasure) as these timelines overlap and we are now getting the “other side” of the story from Brea’s perspective. (I didn’t really “like” her in that book – too selfish – but she really wasn’t now was she?) Her father’s perspective was also much better than I thought it would be – that was quite refreshing. One-Mile continues with his smitten-ness of Brea without apology – even though she mistakes his initial need for space – for her protection. He gets mixed up with that nasty Mexican cartel again – which keeps you on the edge as to when that guy is going to show up again for his revenge. That wrapped up a little too conveniently, just to pop up yet again at the end. I just love this couple and I am so happy for their happy ever after! This book consolidates several of Ms. Black’s Devoted and Wicked series storylines and sets up some new adventures going forward. I don’t know how Shayla keeps all of these timelines together – she must have one hell of a whiteboard in her office. I definitely recommend this book – but only after you read the first one – Wicked as Sin.

OneMiles love for Brea was swoon worthy. Protective, caring, and a dirty talker. I enjoyed overcoming my dislike for Cutter. He drove me crazy in Book 1. But you definitely see a different side to him in this book. I also enjoyed seeing Brea grow as well, developing more of a backbone to stand up for herself!✨ . What didn’t work for me was the religious aspect and Brea’s father. I understand and support that we all have different beliefs and practices. But for me personally, it felt like Brea was much younger than 22 from the way her relationship with her father was. And instead of Cutter getting on my nerves, her father did! Again, not judging, but sometimes it’s difficult to connect when you don’t share the same beliefs or a character drives you crazy. I also wanted more romance, I felt like the couple spent most of the book apart.✨ . Overall, a good duet! Give it a read for yourself!✨ . I was provided an ARC for my honest review.✨

We know going in that Brea and Pierce are it for each other ... but now One Mile (Pierce) has some outstanding business with a drug lord which needs to be resolved before they can be together. This dilemma leads to a complicated story which does a great job of mixing Brea's sheltered, limited life with the wild and complex work life of One Mile. Right now it is very dangerous indeed, with a threat against EM family members too. Really not used to relationships, or the importance of good communication with anyone, Pierce is inevitably mucking things up - but he is absolutely focussed on getting his woman and accepting he deserves an HEA ... it is a complicated, tense journey, and we get to experience it from both his and Brea's side. I think what I love most of all about these two books is how Brea switches to such a sexy siren as soon as she is with Pierce - it is so beautifully written, so fabulously hot, loving and passionate! Another big hit for me, and the promise of much more goodness to come ... as well as getting closer to discovering who is the mole.

Brea is a preacher's daughter and an all around caring, good girl. Since she's been with Pierce things that she doesn't understand are taking place (love, as well as his nickname "One-Mile"). He just left her! How could he after the time and love they shared? As always, Cutter is there to pick up what's left of her broken heart. Great story, very intense! Brea and Pierce were so good together. I found myself dreading turning the pages of this book, because I was anticipating what was going to happen. I knew it would be a necessary outcome, but that didn't make it any easier with all Pierce would have to go through for the end goal. I love the Epilogue and how we're led into what will be in the next installment of this series, but, sadly, we have to wait until late this year to get Zy and Tessa's story!

In the two books Pierce One-Mile Walker and Brea Bell, are two people who for no other reason than they see each other walk into a mirade of intensity, and chemistry. Brea is a preacher's daughter and is the all American good girl waiting for the right man. Her attraction to Pierce (her preferred name for him), is instantaneous and fierce. However, her best friend Cutter, knows One-Mile and he has no intentions of letting Brea come with a mile of him. One look by One-Mile, at a party gathering had him rethinking about this getting close to anyone. She was everything he thought the wanted and more. Their coming together is the result of a sudo bet after One-Mile saves Cutter in a very unlikely way. The conclusion of the Wicked & Devoted series was my favorite of the two. Even though Shayla is an awesome writer, I felt the 2nd book carried me along with more heart and soul. I so enjoyed them and would recommend them to any genre reader. You really don't want to miss out on either of these books. You do need to start with Wicked As Sin or you will lose some of the set up for book 2.

    Another outstanding ending to another great novel by Shayla. Wicked Ever After was just as enticing as Wicked as Sin, the first in this duet.

(hide spoiler)] This ending between One-Mile and Brea was heart-stopping, smack-dab wicked and emotional at times. Could have been 5 Stars for me if it wasn't so tossy-turn and back-forth. I do love a mind-game of a romance, but I think, in my opinion it was a tad over the line. Would I recommend this duet? Heck yes! It's a Shayla Black duet... need I say more?! *ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest and trustworthy review.
