I used to be ordinary Samantha Day, but that's changed. Now, after one dark kiss from a dangerous boy, I can steal someone's soul...or their life. If I give in to the constant hunger inside me, I hurt anyone I kiss. If I don't...I hurt myself.

Bishop is the one whose kiss I crave most, but if I kiss him, I'll kill him. Then there's another boy, one I can't hurt. One whose kiss seems to miraculously quell my hunger. They're both part of a team of angels and demons that's joined forces in my city to fight a mysterious rising darkness, an evil that threatens everyone I know and love. I just wonder if I'll be able to help Bishop-or if I'm just another part of the darkness he's sworn to destroy....

Wicked Kiss picks up a few weeks after Dark Kiss, and the problems continued to stack up. Sam's greatest problem was the danger of sucking out Bishop's soul when he was around her. The hunger became too strong to be ignored. Sam was on the brinks of being consumed by the hunger when she found her temporary solution, Kraven. Yes, Kraven, Bishop's BROTHER. Sam has to make out with him and Bishop has to be okay with that! I for one found this extremely hilarious. I'm most likely the minority here, but I hardcore ship Sam and Kraven.  

My favorite part of the series continued to be the relationship between the characters. Their facade of hating each other lead to hilarious banters. No matter how many times they deny it, we all know they would die to protect each other. My absolute favorite part of Wicked Kiss were the flashbacks of Bishop and Kraven before they became angels and demons. Aren’t you all a bit curious about these guys?

Besides that amusing Sam problem, the team was presented with an unexpected member. The addition of Cassandra, another angel, further imbalanced the group that was made up of four angels and two demons. They were in no position to pass an opportunity for more help, but the problem was the mystery of her true mission. And to complicate the situation even more, the grays began evolving into something they've never faced before.

Wicked Kiss did not come short on plot twists, and held my attention the entire time. I most definitely enjoyed the darker tone in Wicked Kiss compared to Dark Kiss. It was an overall entertaining read that revealed more of the character's backgrounds. I was not disappointed in this follow up to Dark Kiss.

Overall: 4 out of 5


  1. I had actually never heard of this series, but it sounds hilarious as well as dramatic. I already feel bad for Bishop- not only does he have to put up with his love interest kissing his brother, but he has to worry about his soul getting sucked out? Intense, and almost as interesting as the fact that you get to hear about them before they became paranormal creatures.

  2. Oh, I'm intrigued! I love a hilarious PNR novel. And the heroine having to kiss the hero's brother in order to keep the hero alive and well? I'm even more intrigued! I know nothing about this series but I def wanna check it out. Great review Vy!
