Review: His Wicked Ways by Melissa Foster

Author: Melissa Foster
Publication Date: November 2023

Blaine Wicked can spot trouble a mile away. As the eldest of five and raised in a Dark Knights biker family, he has always been a protector. Rescuing a stripper from a bad situation comes with the territory, regardless of the hell the mouthy, slightly awkward, and seriously hot leggy blonde gives him for it. She’s far too innocent to bend to his wicked ways, but the more he learns about her, the harder it is for him to walk away.

Forensic scientist Reese Wilder never imagined herself as the entertainment at a bachelor party, but she’d do anything to keep food on the table for her teenage sister. With their mess of a mother in rehab—Third time’s a charm, right?—Reese is stuck paying off their mother’s debt to a dealer and trying to make ends meet. Reese has had it rough, and she knows better than to rely on anyone for help, much less a pushy biker with piercing blue eyes who probably has dozens of women at his beck and call.

The more flames Reese throws, the more determined Blaine is to walk through them. The closer he gets, the hotter they burn—and the more curious she becomes. But Blaine Wicked has the power to torch Reese’s walls to embers, and with her sister’s well-being at stake, that’s a risk she can’t afford to take.

His Wicked Ways is the 5th book in The Wickeds: Dark Knights at Bayside series.  This one is Blaine Wicked's story.  Visiting with the Wickeds is always like coming home.  I love this family and their bond.  He meets Reese at a bachelor party.  He immediately notices she is like a fish out of water.  He only wants to help her and walk away, but instead, he can't get her out of his mind.  Reese is used to doing everything for herself. She has a hard time letting others help her.  Now that she has to take care of her sister, she is finding it harder to say no.

I really enjoyed this one.  I loved Reese and Blaine together.  Their attraction was intense and while I loved that, what I liked even more was their friendship.  I felt like they were able to foster that along with their physical attraction.  I devoured their book and loved watching Blaine's walls slowly break down.  I really loved what Reese did for him in the end.  Along with the romance, we are treated to a great friendship that develops between Blaine and Colette, Reese's sister.  It was fun and adorable.  As always, I highly recommend this one.  It can be read as a stand alone, so pick it up!
