Review: WICKED CHARMING by Nazarea Andrews!

My Review: This was a fun read, and I'm definitely a sucker for series that take place in a BDSM club. There's something about the sense of community - a shared kink or lifestyle can really bond people. I fell in love with the four friends who started the club. Even when the story itself felt a little off, I could feel the bond between these four. I also found it super interesting that one of them was a submissive. They weren't all super dominant alpha males, so I have to give this author major props for that! Also I like how okay they were with taking male submissives. It was obvious they preferred women, but the dominance wasn't just about sex (though that seemed like a huge plus), control was the main thing - so it didn't matter if the sub that were controlling was male or female.

Now on to what I felt was lacking in this book - a real sense of motivation. I mostly understood why they were doing what they were, we get explanations for the reasoning behind the decisions, it just didn't feel strong enough, I guess. The whole sub auditions just seemed so weirdly placed. Again, we get a reason for it, but it just felt so odd, and lacking. 

But my small issues with this book would not stop me from reading the rest of the series! In fact, I might have to go ahead and click the pre-order button for book 2!

Cover Lovin': I love it! Simple and classy.

Recommendation: Book one, no prior knowledge necessary.

Final Rating:  THREE out of FIVE stars (3/5)! This was a good read. But the lack of oomph behind some of the character motivations knocked it down a few stars.

Happy Reading!

It’s the dirtiest fairy tale of all…. Charm. Beast. Wolf. Everyone in the Kingdom–an exclusive, decadent BDSM club–knows the three friends and business partners. But no one has ever gotten close enough to touch them. Sex is easy, even when it hurts. It’s all any of them wanted. Love is off the table. Love is the thing none of them ever saw coming. In the Kingdom, control is everything. Who wields it and who surrenders. But some things even they can’t control. Welcome to the Kingdom, where every happily ever after hurts in the most wicked of ways.


WICKED CHARMING (Wicked Ever After, #1)



He’s at the top of the world. He’s rich, sought after, and in control. And he’s bored. A string of one-night stands have left Samul Charming increasingly dissatisfied. When his mother pushes him to settle down, his best friends come up with a brilliant plan: Audition the submissives at The Kingdom. The problem is, Charm knows who he wants: the only girl to challenge him, while submitting as naturally as breathing. But he can’t have her. With the entire club watching and his parents expecting him to marry soon, Charm decides to settle. But love in the Kingdom is never simple and it is never painless. And Charm is about to be reminded of that.



WICKED BEAST (Coming February 20)


Blurb: James “Beast” Lutz isn’t like his friends. He doesn’t crave control the way Charm and Mal do, and he doesn’t play the games Wolf thrives on. He lives on his knees, all of his strength bent to the will of his Domme. He’s never regretted that, until now. Now, when he’s trapped in an arrangement serving a Domme who can’t keep a sub. Now, when he’s not sure how to trust a woman wrapped in mystery and less sure he wants to. But the more he gets to know the Domme everyone knows as Beauty, the more Beast realizes everything he thought he knew was wrong.


WICKED WOLF (Coming February 27)


Blurb: Charles Wolf Blackwood likes the game. He likes chasing a new girl every week, loves seducing them and earning their trust. He doesn’t like to keep them. Until he meets Scarlet. The chase has never been quite as intoxicating as it is with her, the feisty sub with an innocent streak a mile wide. And for the first time, he wants to keep her, but Scarlet already has a Dom, and Hunter has no intentions of giving her up. Both Wolf and Hunter are in for a surprise when they realize Scarlet doesn’t want one of them. She’s playing to keep them both.
