Zara Cox is one of my new go-to authors, I promise. I don’t know where she’s been all my life. It’s been a couple of months since I first read Beautiful Liar and I fell in love with Quinn and Elyse.
In Wicked S.O.B. Zara Cox does not disappoint. I thought that after Beautiful Liar, Quinn and Elyse’s story would’ve ended. It really did, and I wouldn’t have imagined a sequel would be needed because the end of the previous book was satisfying. But, gosh, Zara Cox did such a fabulous spin with this sequel that I couldn’t get enough of them.
Quinn and Elyse are flawed, pretty fucked up characters trying to create a new way of life for them after the terrible things they’ve lived. I’d say this sequel gives the reader a deeper look into their lives and how they’re coping after the mess from a year ago.
Quinn struggles more than Elyse in getting used to their new reality, and accepting life can be good and that he can actually enjoy it only if he lets himself try. His struggle is real, his possessiveness of Elyse is just as strong as the love he feels for her. I love how alpha he is at the same time he’s a teddy bear. Though it seems he’s got all the power over Elyse, it really is Elyse who has all the power over him. I just love, love, love their dynamic in and out of the bedroom.
Book by book, Zara Cox is becoming one of those authors whose books I’d highly recommend to everyone who loves erotic thrillers.
