But when he learns she’s planning a future without him, he vows he’ll break every rule and defy all odds to make her his again—forever.

Brea Bell was always a good girl…until Pierce Walker. Despite everyone’s warnings, she gave the rough warrior her body—and her heart. When she receives news that shatters her world, he devastates her by walking away. Terrified of losing all she’s ever known, Brea tucks away her dreams and commits to a “safe” future.

WICKED EVER AFTER: One Mile and Brea is the second instalment is the second instalment in Shayla Black’s contemporary, adult WICKED AND DEVOTED erotic, romance merging of the Wicked Lovers, and Devoted Lovers series. WICKED EVER AFTER should not be read as a stand alone as it picks up immediately after the events of book one WICKED AS SIN. Wicked as Sin, and Wicked ever After run parallel to and cross over with the author’s Devoted to Pleasure (Devoted Lovers #1) Told from dual third person perspectives (Pierce and Brea) WICKED EVER AFTER continues to follow the struggling relationship between US military sniper Pierce ’One-Mile’ Walker, and preacher’s daughter /hair stylist Brea Bell. Pierce Walker works for EM Security Management but struggles with an assignment that went all to h*ll. Desperate for vengeance, Pierce will leave a heart broken Brea behind when he goes in search of Montilla, the head of the Mexican Cartel and the man who destroyed his life but all is not well within EM Security Management when a mole is suspected among one of their own. Meanwhile Brea Bell battles between head and heart when more devastating revelations affecting her life threaten her relationship with her father, prompting the narrow-minded gossips of Sunset, Louisiana to continue to bury the knife, opening wounds and breaking her heart. The relationship between Brea and Pierce struggles with secrets and lies, miscommunication, jealousy, vengeance, and time spent apart. Pierce has gone underground and rogue in the hopes of taking down the man who tortured and abused our story line hero, and in this Brea finds herself alone at a time when she needs Pierce Walker the most. Brea’s relationship with her father, and his strict religious beliefs take precedent as Brea struggles with the ramifications of her relationship with the man that she loves, a relationship she believes is now in the past. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text but I struggled with the ongoing separation between our leading couple as we were no longer up close and personal with their building relationship-in this, I felt disconnected from their growing romance. There is a large ensemble cast of colorful secondary and supporting characters including Brea’s best friend and Pierce Walker’s nemesis Cutter Bryant (Devoted to Pleasure , Devoted Lovers #1), Brea’s father Preacher Bell, her fellow workers at the local salon, and several members of EM Security Management whom we previously met in both the Wicked Lovers, and Devoted Lovers series. WICKED EVER AFTER is a story of heart break and betrayal; secrets and lies; friendship, family, hope and love. The premise is emotional and captivating; the characters are numerous, energetic, broken and wounded; the romance struggles in the face of preconceived notions, religious beliefs and time apart.

Omg 🔥❤️ This was a great conclusion. I love these two series are coming together and what a great start to this series with these two characters, one mile and brea. The resurgence of Logan, Joaquin, hunter, jack deke and all the other favorites. I can’t wait for the next installment. I did not want to put this down and the story was so good and believable. Shayla black has gone beyond what I expected and that’s hard since I have not found a book she wrote i Janet loved.

5 Star review of Wicked Ever After (Wicked & Devoted #2) by Shayla Black This is the conclusion to Pierce “One-Mile” Walker and Brea Bell’s story and it was everything I hoped for and so much more. Like the first book, Wicked Ever After has a lot going on and although not a particularly long book, Ms. Black certainly packed a lot into it. This book was hot, steamy, gripping and suspenseful. In fact there were times that I was on the edge of my seat as the action heated up. Not only was the suspense riveting but at times it was intense and emotional as danger again reared it’s ugly head. I was fully invested in this story from the first to the last chapter. All in all this was a captivating read with strong writing and characters that you cannot help but relate too,in fact even Cutter grew on me. I cannot wait for the next book in the series as from the final chapter, it sounds intriguing.
