Review: Decadent (Wicked Lovers #2) by Shayla Black
Two men are better than one…
How can a virgin seeking happily-ever-after with a hot pop star who has a penchant for threesomes win her fantasy man? Kimber Edgington desperately needs a plan to convince Jesse McCall, who’s been her friend and secret crush since they spent a summer together as teenagers, that they are meant for each other. But all the tabloid stories about his sexual escapades make her feel oh-so inadequate.
Determined to prove she’s woman enough for Jesse, Kimber turns to bodyguard Deke Trenton for sexual education. Bold and brash, Deke warns Kimber that playing with him is playing with fire. But he can’t bear to imagine the innocent beauty in someone else’s arms. So Deke and his super-sexy friend, Luc, take Kimber under their wings and dangerously close to the edge of ecstasy. Though she’s saved herself for Jesse, Kimber soon learns, he’s not the man adept at stoking her aching, endless need. That’s Deke, and he can’t resist when Kimber begs for more–and more…

I liked this book more than the first in the series, but it still has a few problems...
This book was filled with knock your socks off steamy scenes, the problem for me is that Deke and Luc are cousins. That's weird for me. I know they don't actually touch each other during their sexcapades, but it's just weird. I felt like Luc was the gay best friend that is scared to come out of the closet. He's too sensitive. Deke is emotionally damaged and Kimber is his savior... we've heard this story before. Not to mention that the crime doesn't fit the punishment so to speak.
Kimber's infatuation with a pop star is believable - but if she were truly in love with him would she really have let two mostly strange men do those hot and steamy things to her as tutors? In reality, no; but it makes the book interesting and we read books to escape reality, right?! Jesse's obsession with Kimber however is rather odd and I could have done without that whole part of the story.. but it leads to the only non steamy action scene in the book - where we finally see the original Deke - super hot, masculine, kick ass body guard.
Overall it was a good listen. (audio book)
You have to hand it Shayla, she can write some awesome sex scenes. For the most part the story is good, especially for the length of the book, I was never bored with it, always interested in what was going to happen next, and definitely a little hot under the collar a few times.
Overall: 3.5 Stars * Sex Rating: 3.5
