Wicked Heart is the third book in the Bad Romeo universe, and follows Eliza Holt, rather than her brother Ethan Holt and his girlfriend Cassie. The general story and the way of storytelling remain the same to the previous installments of the series but doesn’t really add anything new to the table.
Just like the first book the main character Eliza and Liam had some passionate days before everything went sour because Liam had to leave in order to pursue a career in acting in Hollywood, leaving Eliza behind. In Hollywood, Liam starts dating Angel Bell, his gorgeous co-star model, and while Liam finds himself in the most talked about relationship of Hollywood, Eliza stays alone single mourning her lost relationship. all of that changes when Liam and Angel get cast on the play Eliza’s the stage manager off, and they still hit it off very well.
I can’t help but feel the story feels like a slightly worse version of Bad Romeo that includes cheating, which can be a huge turn-off. Compared to Bad Romeo, Wicked heart lacked on the emotions that weren’t “horny”.
We know most of the cast from the first two installments in the series and builds on the characters that haven’t had their backstory developed that much yet. I’m happy Eliza got a chance to stay in the spotlight and find a boyfriend of her own, rather than being forced to watch Ethan and Cassie for all of eternity. All the erotic scenes were well written and enjoyable
All in all, While I enjoyed this book for what it was, I couldn’t help feeling this book was a worse version of Bad Romeo, cashing on its success. However, if you love second chance erotica, and have read the first two installments in the series wanting to see more characters fleshed out definitely pick it up!
