Why did Lauren Vaughn introduce her sister to the man she herself was crazy about? Now Lauren is watching the happy couple at their combined bachelor/bachelorette party—while Lauren sits all alone at the bar. Until she spots a hot stranger with the telltale black handkerchief in his pocket: the signal for "seeks no-strings affair with sexy submissive." Lauren can't take her eyes off him. So when he comes over, she kicks her inner good girl to the curb and follows Jamie Forman to his room, where he makes her scream with pleasure all night long.

But Jamie is a complicated man. He can't handle how desperately he wants her in his bed—and his life. It's up to Lauren to teach him how to make all night last forever.

Review/ Thoughts:

What I would give to have so much fun in spite of my family’s drama’s. Then again wouldn’t we all like to fantasies’ about having our dream man in the most wicked ways, or rather him having us and all control? My hand is most definitely up and what a wicked weekend I had reading this delicious story.

Lauren is a relatable character who is forced to attend her sister’s bridal party and become the doormat for the night. That is until she takes the courage to walk away from her self-absorbed sister into the arms and control of Jaime- who at times had me a little worried. However this is not your conventional story and there are layers that build as these two realize how high the stakes can be when there are emotions involved.

One aspect I found fascinating is the concept of Happy ever after. I really like that in some parts of the story this is not apparent. I myself often wonder well is there a perfect somebody out there for all of us and does he exist, or are we like the animals we were created to be and we cannot control our needs even when constricted by marriage.

I would recommend Wicked Weekend to people who want to ease themselves into the genre or who already like to read BDSM with a little spice of romance. It is a nice, kinky read to kick start the weekend, but be warned it does get smoking hot and a cold shower may be very well be in order.
