Wicked Sinner by Stacey Kennedy

A gripping, heart-pounding romance from USA Today bestselling author Stacey Kennedy about a former FBI agent who will do anything it takes to protect his ex, or risk losing her for good...

Asher Sullivan was once Remy Brennan's entire world--until he broke her heart into a million pieces. So when Asher crashes her wedding, Remy is certain he's come to claim her. To make her his again. Instead, it turns out Remy's groom is a con man scheming for her inheritance. Now all she's left with is an empty bank account, a serious case of lust for her gorgeous ex...and a duffel bag of cold, hard cash that might just fix all her problems.

Detective Asher Sullivan has always protected Remy. So when dangerous criminals start threatening her, Asher's most primitive instincts take over. Sticking by Remy's side means Asher is finally able to make amends for leaving her all those years ago. And soon they're giving in to their wicked, insatiable need. But just as Asher gets his second chance, a secret Remy is keeping could rip her away from him... forever.

Ten years ago, Asher Sullivan broke Remy Brennan's heart when he left Stoney Creek and her for a job with the FBI. She never really got over him leaving but when he returned five years ago, she tried to move on with her life and forget he was still around. Now she is about to marry a man that can make her happy and her life is simple. But Asher has other plans. When Asher stops the wedding, Remy thinks and hopes that he is there to declare his love for her. But he is there to arrest her soon-to-be husband. Turns out that Damon is a con man that is only after her inheritance that she will get once she is married.

Asher is still in love with Remy and he knew he made a mistake leaving her all those years ago. But he was in a dark place after his mother died and needed to get away. Even if it meant leaving the one person he loved. But he feared losing anyone else that he loved. Being back in Stoney Creek and so close to Remy, all he wants to do is keep her safe.

Can Remy forgive him for hurting her yet again? Will Asher tell her how he really feels? Will Damon come after her when he gets out of jail? What happens when Damon's friends come after Remy for what Damon stole from them?

This is a great story that is filled with friends, lovers, lost love, and suspense. So be ready for this group of longtime friends and their little town – that I would have loved to have grown up in. I cannot wait for Rhett and Kinsley's story. And if you haven't read anything from Stacey Kennedy, then start with this series, you will love her writing style and the way she tells a story, I sure do.

I will start by stating that I did not read book one and never felt that I was lost. All of the characters and how they fit together is explained in this book.

Asher was dead set on running away when the last of his family died. He was floundering and rather than lean on those closest to him, he decided that he needed to protect them by leaving. However, in the process, he broke Remy's heart.

Remy was raised by her nana. Remy's mom is absentee at best, but Remy does hear from her every now and then. Remy's nana believed in a little magic and so does Remy. But when Asher left her, Remy feels that her life kind of fell apart too. Without her best friends surrounding her, she wouldn't have made it. But now that Asher is back, it doesn't seem to matter. Remy has moved forward in her life. She's getting married!

Asher knows that he hurt Remy beyond what he can even comprehend. But Asher has always been around to protect her and this time isn't any different. He can't let Remy marry Damon. Remy doesn't know it, but Damon isn't who he says he is.

After the debacle that was Remy's wedding, she isn't sure who to trust, who to lean on, and what to do. Asher is determined to be anything that Remy needs at the moment. He wants to redeem himself.

This story is full of love, friendship, mystery, and romance. I loved watching all of their friends and really enjoyed watching Remy and Asher find their way back to each other. I can't wait for the next book in this series.

This is the second book in the series, and I would say that it is a good idea to read them in order, so you know more about the characters and the town but it is a new story, so if you are too impatient to start, you can always go back later!

In this installment, Asher returns to his hometown after leaving his first love, Remy, at the end of high school. She has had a difficult time since, as her inheritance is conditional on her being married, and she has never really forgotten Asher. However, as we see at the very beginning, she is about to get married. However Asher stops it at the altar – sadly, not because he wants her, but because her husband to be is a con man who wants her money.

With the agreement of her friends, Remy makes a decision which changes the course of her life... and not all for the good. I have to say that the decision is definitely an 'interesting' one, and it could have been a huge issue with how much readers like Remy, but by having Peyton and Kinsley in on the secret it is sort of okay! I found the spells and the magic side of things fun, and not too serious, although her strong lifelong plan to open a shop was definitely key to the decision which gets her into so much trouble.

I enjoyed the romance, the inevitable chemistry, and the complications which led them to finally admit to what we knew all along. A good addition to the series, and the promise of Rhett finally waking up to himself and what Kinsley could really mean to him.
