Kyraryker’s quotes

"She thought it over, but couldn’t see any immediate loopholes other than the threat of her inner slut emerging, and she could darned well control that little bitch."— Susan Elizabeth Phillips

Tall, Dark, and Wicked (Wicked Trilogy) - Madeline Hunter

Ives stood there in his shirtsleeves. No coats, no cravat. No pretense.

He did not say a word. He did not have to. He announced his intentions with his mere presence, and through the way he looked at her.


I think amazing book hangover colored my experience with this one. It was well written but the relationship between the two leads in the beginning felt a bit stiff to me. Later on, when they entered the bedroom, things turned sultry but I still never felt myself warming up to them. 

Like everyone else, I'm disappointed there were no courtroom scenes with our hero being a barrister; such a lost interesting opportunity. 

I really liked the brothers' relationships and how they interacted with one another. This was my favorite part of the story and where I felt realness of relationship and emotion.
