Wynne Roman shows no sign of series fatigue in book five of her Wycked Obsession series, Wycked love.
As heroes go Rye Myles was the stuff that makes readers fan girl. His caring and protective side offset with his bad boy edge was a potent combination. With his unstable upbringing his surprisingly grounded character brought a comfort and peace to his relationship with Minx in his understanding and knowing how to handle her issues helped by his own personal history. His successes in life came from hard work and not allowing his past circumstances to hold him back permitting him to help Minx to move on from her past coupled with his love and devotion. This kind of hero is often seen as too good to be true but Ms. Roman was able to carry it off by showing just enough flaws to knock Rye from any potential pedestals and making him attainable for both Minx and readers alike.
Minx saw a darkness that few could recover from and came back with more power within than she was aware of. Reuniting with Rye was the catalyst for her to start on the road to leaving her past behind and reaching for what she wanted in her life. Minx’s struggles were painful and inspiring to watch, yet her taking ownership of prior events and continually pushing past them for a future free of guilt, pain and low self esteem proved her to be one amazing heroine.
If any couple deserved to walk into the happily ever after zone it was Rye and Minx. With histories, both separate and shared, filled with sorrow and obstacles not an emotion expressed between them felt staged or disingenuous. The devotion in this pair as friends and lovers was touching to watch. The forgiveness and lack of judgment they had for each other worked beautifully in defining their relationship and moving this story forward.
Wynne Roman chose some hard topics to deal with in Wycked Love. What pushed this story to a whole other level was the fact that there was complete transparency and honesty in how this author handled serious issues. This writer expressed every thought, ranging from fear to happiness, as if this story depended on it resulting in a work that made an impressive impact. With lots of expertise and care this author avoided falling into the trap of homogenizing her band members keeping them unique and fresh for her audience. Rye and Minx showed strength in their vulnerability and Ms. Roman extended that trait to each of the key players in this work. As with the previous books in this series this writer seamlessly got into her characters heads and gave her reader’s genuine and personal exposure. As has come to be expected her easy writing style was deceptive in the depth of emotions she expressed. Wycked Love builds upon the accomplishments of Wynne Roman’s sexy Wycked Obsession rockers with another candid and intimate look into the lives that make up this captivating series!
