[Review] Wicked Games by L.A. Cotton


The edgy, angsty, addictive YA/NA crossover series from L. A. Cotton continues…

They thought the fight was over…

All Maverick Prince ever wanted was to play basketball in college. So starting for the Steinbeck Scorpions should be a dream come true. But not everyone wants to see him succeed. Just because you’re on the same team, doesn’t mean you play by the same rules.

Lo Stone thought her life was finally on an even keel. As if being a senior and having to think about her future isn’t bad enough, she’s a stranger in her own house. And the longer she goes without seeing Maverick, the harder it is to ignore the little voice of doubt whispering in her ear.

They thought the games were over, but the war is only just beginning…



I’m a Wicked addict…..

I am confident that you will understand what I mean when I say that every so often you meet a book couple that you love as individuals and by fortunate happenstance they are also perfect together, and for each other…. this is not a regular occurrence: too often I like one protagonist more than the other or their relationship does not seem genuine, but, for me, Lo and Mav are the quintessentially ideal couple and for the record I love both of them equally, together and apart…

This series just keeps getting better and better… it deals with challenging and dark subject matter and tackles issues, that so many face, in a sensitive and emotionally intelligent way… what is particularly rewarding is the fact that whilst Lo and Mav are the central characters, thank goodness, and rightly so, the secondary characters are also wonderfully complex and well developed … no matter which character is the main focus of the scene, I am invested and they all bring added depth to the story..

You can probably tell I am addicted to everything about this series… the concept, the setting and the cast members … Each time I reach the end of the latest instalment I find myself immediately checking a) to make sure there are more books planned, and b) to identify when the next one is due… thankfully I do not have to say goodbye, just yet, and look forward to the next book with bated breath…
