Wicked Charming (Wicked After, #1)
by Nazarea Andrews
Release Date: February 10, 2017
4 DIRTY PRINCE CHARMING CROWNS
I am not sure what I was expecting with a BDSM fairytale romance, but Nazarea Andrews far surpassed my expectations, which says a lot since BDSM is not my favorite romance genre. Even though it isn’t, I found myself loving these characters, the plot line, and her inclusion of fairy-tale details into her story in a unique and interesting way. I really just devoured this story.
Charming is a dom that has found a lack of interest in any of the submissives. He is bored with this aspect of his life, and desperately craves a permanent sub that he will want longer than one scene. He wants more than this, not just a submissive but someone as a permanent fixture in his life outside and inside of the club. Charming also has the pressures of his outside life with the running of his family’s pharmaceutical company and the strange yet supportive relationship of his “brothers,” who are all just as equally interesting as Charming. His attention of course is eventually drawn by a woman who works at the Kingdom, but there are several obstacles in their way. At the end of the novel, I was certainly charmed by this prince.
I generally don’t like BDSM heroines, simply because I don’t understand the submissive aspect of the relationship. I however, really like Celeste. She is completely submissive when they are in a scene, but she still has a spirit and fierceness, an independence that I love about her. Even when they are are playing in the dungeon, there are moments when her independence attempts to shine through. I really enjoy the balance that Nazarea Andrews gave her character.
I really adore this book. Ms. Andrews’s retelling of the Cinderella was spot on. It is done in an original way, yet there is enough of the tale and the characters to appreciate the connection to the fairy-tale. I absolutely love this aspect of the book. I also really enjoyed the story, not just for the romance, but for the friendship between the four main characters. The story intrigued me, captivated my attention from the opening pages, and I couldn’t get enough!
This series of novellas is a must read. It is sexy with a touch of danger, filled with flawed and interesting characters, and the story she tells is just as engaging. I know that I cannot wait to get Beast and Wolf’s story, and I am hoping we can get Mal’s story. Fingers crossed!
