Book Reviews

  • A generic and predictable book

    By Jnelle87
    This book was slightly confusing, totally vanilla and predictable. The book felt like it started in the middle of a story; the characters were too far in advance of their feelings for each other despite hardly having held a convo or seeing each other for years. The book just sailed on, nothing exciting or jumping off the pages. Would not recommend.
  • Love it!

    I have read many of your books and all of the books in this series but, can I just say this one was my absolute favorite!! Well done! This book had me crying! I love all the emotion in it! I hope in your next book we see War and Claire and maybe what there up to! I would love for War to connect with his brother on how to genuinely love a women for the first time! Thanks again for capturing romance Jess!

    I love Jess Michaels and I love this series! The Wicked Woodleys series is full of great characters, true love matches, hot wicked sex and nail biting suspense. Claire Woodleys has been lost to the family for several years now ashamed and guilt ridden for the things that she's done she does not want to see her family. Warwick "War" Blackwood has worked for the Woodleys for years as the horse trainer. War has wanted Claire since he first laid eyes on her but knew he was far beneath her. Claire desperately needs War's help and is willing to do anything to get it. Claire demands War's help but War has his own demands but it may be more then Claire can give. I love War and Claire together. They both have a past that controls their actions and secrets they will do anything to protect.
