New Release + Review: Wicked Games by Kel Carpenter

Title: Wicked Games
Series: Queen of the Damned #2
Author: Kel Carpenter
Genre: Paranormal Romance
Release Date: April 20, 2018

So…as it turns out, I really am Lucifer’s Daughter. Hell’s Heir. And—you guessed it—the next Queen of the Damned.

But what if I don’t want to rule?
With the imp in hiding, and Josh gone from this world, I still wasn’t safe. Not by a long shot. Dear ol’ Dad didn’t just pass on his legacy and mark. He also passed on all of Hell’s problems, and that means his enemies, are now mine.
Fortunately for me, I have the Four Horsemen, my banshee best friend, and a pissed off raccoon on my side.
But now I have the beast to contend with. My psychotic, possessive, and downright scary alter-ego was dead set on having the Horsemen, not only at my back, but in my bed. As if learning to control the flames of Hell wasn’t a hard enough job by itself.
Would it have been too hard for Lucifer to write a handbook before he died?
Julia’s 🎩🎩🎩🎩🎩 hat review:
Wicked Games is an action packed slow burn romance that lives within our world. I will say, read the first one before reading this one. Ruby is awesome. She’s a badass chick and grows more into her powers and beast this book. I really liked how Ruby didn’t fight too much with the beast inside her, it will soon become a huge part of her so I liked that they got along with few arguments. Everything comes to a head this book. We learn more about Ruby, we also learn more about the Horsemen and Moira. At first I was telling at Ruby to get it on with her Horsemen. Now I’m loving the slow burn of romance and getting to know each guy. They are so different from each other. Rysten and Laran are my favorites. I enjoyed getting a snippet from all four’s life though.

I’m excited to see where Ruby ends up with the next book. I’m also curious about her transition. She’s made some new allies, possibly, and we’ve met new villains. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I’m impatiently waiting to find out what happens next. Especially after the few reveals at the end of the story!!
