Wonderfully Wicked Review

Wonderfully Wicked


C. J. Burright

4 Stars!!

A dreamcaster with the ability to channel creatures from her nightmares, headstrong and cynical Kalila Montgomery longs for a peaceful, picket-fence life… until the man literally of her dreams kidnaps her.

Survival quickly becomes her number one goal, yet a growing attraction to the man in her nightmares is impossible to ignore. While she fears he will kill her, other, more terrifying enemies surround her, and Kalila succumbs to his scheme to escape. She may be his one hope for freedom…

A deadly combination of power, cunning, and cold-hearted charm, Lydon v'al Endrian fears nothing. Feels nothing. Chained to a brotherhood of men with the supernatural ability to invade dreams, he hunts dreamcasters to be harvested for their dreams and killed. His target: Kalila Montgomery. But Kalila awakens an undeniable dark desire and a longing for a freedom long-lost.

To gain everything he craves, Lydon must seduce Kalila before his plot is discovered… a hopeless challenge which, if failed, will earn him a death-sentence. Caught up in a dangerous world of secrets and obsession, doubt and betrayal, Kalila and Lydon face the nightmare of their lives, where love will either deliver them—or destroy them both.

My thoughts…

This book was surprising to me. I went into this book not sure if I was going to enjoy it or not. I wasn’t sure if the dreamcaster topic was going to keep me interested. I was wrong. Really really wrong. I liked almost everything about this book. Lydon, Kalila, Mel, Monsters, it has everything.

Kalila was a strong person no matter what she goes through. She has had a horrible past with foster homes and she sees monsters in her dreams. Monsters she can bring to life if she wants to. The only people she has in her life are Mel, a foster sister and best friend, and a Man that is in her dreams. She doesn’t know if he wants to kill her or seduce her. Either way she knows he is trouble the minute she sees him outside of her dreams. She was snarky, stubborn, and sarcastic through the whole book. I love those characters. She was a total badass too. She wasn’t afraid to kick some ass no matter how big the guy was.

Lydon isn’t necessarily human. He steals dreams and he can change into anything that he finds in people’s dreams. He was sent to kill Kalila. He takes one look at her and knows he can’t. Kalila is his and he doesn’t know how or if he should save her. Lydon was hilarious. He knew how to push Kalila’s buttons and loved to push every single one of them. He fights with his nature the whole time and tries to win Kalila’s heart even though he already has it. He was an asshole until he wasn’t. He was so sweet in the end, I fell in love with him all over again.

Like I said I liked almost everything about this book. I hated that Kalila tied to two people. I understand Daxon helps her but I hated that she tied to anyone but Lydon. I absolutely hate love triangles so if this goes into a series as long as it stays a tie and not love I’ll be fine. The minute it turns to something more with those two I will lose my mind. I love Lydon and Kalila’s chemistry and the way they interact.

This book was amazing and a must read!
