Synopsis
A secret society. 
A forbidden crush. 
And an unsolved murder... 

Emily Danes expected the tough classes at Campbell College, one of the most exclusive and prestigious universities in the world. She expected the ivy-covered halls. She expected the money.

She didn’t see Wolf Astor coming.

Obscenely wealthy, socially connected, and heart-stoppingly gorgeous, he’s everything she ever dreamed of in a man.

He’s also a total prick.

But at a place like Campbell College, there’s no escape. Not from Wolf, and not from the secrets hidden behind the graceful facades of the campus.

With every day that passes, she’s drawn deeper into the underbelly of the wealthy and privileged at Campbell: a secret society known as the Skulls & Thorns.

And with a murderer loose on campus, she’s running out of time to escape.

Excerpt
Pulling my two heavy textbooks for this class out of the stack too, I arrange everything nicely. Just as I am getting my brand new pencils ready, I am startled by a loud bang. My desk mate drops his books on the countertop and sits down, looking at me askance.
I startle to realize that it’s the blond Greek god I ran from only yesterday. Tall and broad-shouldered, he wears his black denim and dark blue tee shirt incredibly well. He knows it too, judging by his posture. He perches on his stool and crosses his arms, expectant. Perfectly unkempt sandy blond hair, dark brows spread wide over the darkest blue eyes I’ve ever seen, a patrician nose, two incredible cheekbones, and the most expressive lips…
This guy is fucking hot, excuse my French.
Which are currently smirking at me. I knew hot guys back home in Prineville. Mostly I avoided them, truth be told. But this guy is on another level. He is so dazzling that he could work in television… and bad tv just so happens to be my weakness.
 Being around this guy is enough to make me rethink the bright yellow tee shirt dress I am wearing. I want more than anything to tug the hem down and smooth my hands over my black tights, but I don’t.
Instead I blush, fumbling to introduce myself. Sticking my hand straight out and tossing my messy blonde hair back, I try for an authoritative voice. “I’m Emily Danes.”
At the front of the classroom, the professor clears his throat, ready to start talking. My eyes dart to him, but then he reaches for his bunch of tissues again. Glancing back to my partner, I see him eye me up and down in a totally unsubtle way.
At last, he leans forward and shakes my hand. His skin against mine is hot. I bite my lip, refusing to let a little thing like instant animal attraction do me in.
“I’m Wolf,” he says, his voice low and gravelly. He looks me over once more.
Then he arches a brow, his smirk deepening. “Did you find all of your panties last night?”
My cheeks instantly go the exact color of a ripe tomato. I lick my lips and frown. What am I supposed to say to that?

Review
This book was provided by the authors through Give Me Books Promotions in exchange for an honest review. Thank you Vivian Wood, Amelia Wilde and Give Me Books Promotions!

Wicked Games is the first book in the series and tells the story of Emily and Wolf.


This is the first book I’ve read by Vivian Wood and  Amelia Wilde and I’m really happy that I requested this book. When I read the synopsis, I knew that I was going to like this book. But I don’t ‘like’ it, no I love it! Wicked Games is mysterious, sexy and addictive!

There was a love triangle in Wicked Games but it was always clear who Emily was going to choose. I did like that Emily took her time to decide whether or not she wanted to be in a relationship. You don’t see that often in books but it’s reality. You don’t always immediately go for a guy that you just met.

One negative point is that there were a lot of ‘fast forwards’ in the book. I think that some parts would’ve been a good that they were in the book such as Emily’s first kiss with Max. But besides the ‘fast forwards’, I really loved this book.

Wicked Games is an amazing New Adult/Romance book and I cannot wait to read Max’ story!
