Overview

*A New York Times & USA Today bestseller!*

Six bestselling authors bring you six all-new contemporary and super sexy novellas of first loves, first attractions, first temptations, first times and first obsessions.

FIRST EXPOSURE by Elisabeth Naughton

A film that could make her career. A weekend that will change her life…

When actress Avery Scott’s assistant goes missing researching a role for Avery at an exclusive adults-only resort, Avery finds herself with only one choice: travel to the resort herself and look for clues. She hires an elite operative from Aegis Security to accompany her. She just doesn’t expect to get former undercover FBI agent Cade Blackwell—the man who ripped out her teenage heart twelve years before. One weekend at the sexiest resort in the world with the only man she’s ever loved will expose her to more than just a kinky new lifestyle. It’ll expose her to numerous wicked firsts that will test every ounce of her self-control. And if she’s not careful, she could lose her heart—and her life—in the process.

FIRST RAPTURE by Alexandra Ivy

Madison Philips has only one reason to return to Las Vegas: Luc Angeli. The tall, dark bad boy took her virginity on her eighteenth birthday and then walked away, now she’s back, and ready for revenge. Luc Angeli spent his youth trying to earn the approval of his philandering father. Now he’s his own man, but there’s still something missing from his life. He doesn’t know what it is until he catches sight of Madison across a balcony. Suddenly he knows this woman is what he’s been searching for, and this time he’s not walking away.

FIRST TASTE OF DARKNESS by Cynthia Eden

Hot sex. No regrets. Jess Delaney has spent her life playing the role of the good-girl. On a trip to Vegas, she decides to walk on the wild side when she meets mysterious Blake Landon. Rich, powerful, and carrying plenty of secrets, Blake is unlike any man she has ever met before. But as the passion burns between them, danger waits in the darkness…a danger that may just claim Jess’s life…

FIRST INK by Laura Wright

Rush

Women in his bed, celebs and rockers in his chair, life is pretty freaking swell. Then she walks back into it again. Not for pleasure, but for pain. For Ink. A bleeding heart to match the one she left him with five years ago.

Addison

She can’t forget him or the pain she caused him. All she has is a hope for redemption. But it’ll only work if he lets her inside his exclusive world, under his famous artist’s needle and into his bed—once again.

FIRST SURRENDER by Katie Reus

He’s dangerous, sexy, and everything she wants. And he’s about to make his claim…

Hayden, the dangerously sexy, tattooed ex-SEAL is one of the best friends Sierra has ever had—and the main star in her wildest fantasies. But he doesn’t see her that way. And she’d die of embarrassment if he found out she was still a virgin.

Hayden’s struggled to keep his attraction to the beautiful, dark haired casino chef a secret. But when an attacker targets Sierra, Hayden’s protective instincts go into overdrive. With the attraction between them burning out of control, he’ll do whatever it takes to protect her and stake his claim.

FIRST TEMPTATION by Joan Swan

Counterterrorist agent Taft Walker is up for the challenge of posing as an adult store owner with a new female undercover partner who is also a sex-toy virgin. At least until he sees the real woman beneath her tough façade.

Border Patrol Agent Zoe Brooks is ready to get off the front lines. She’s willing to tolerate a swaggering partner like Taft for a new opportunity. But she’s not prepared for the way he understands her deepest, sexiest desires.

    Wicked Firsts was a wicked good read. This box set contains six

    Wicked Firsts was a wicked good read. This box set contains six stand-alone stories/novellas. Each one is between five and twelve chapters. The theme is “firsts”. First lovers reunited; first tattoo; first undercover assignment, etc. The other common thread in most of them is that either the hero or heroine has a tattoo – designed or inked by Rush Merrick. All of the stories contain some hot, sexy action between the hero/heroine. I tried not to give any spoilers in my review.

    First Exposure by Elizabeth Naughton features Avery and Cade. Avery is a prominent Hollywood actress whose assistant has gone missing researching an assignment at a sex resort. Avery hires a security agency to help her locate her assistant and the agent assigned to be her “pretend” husband on the trip is none other than Cade, her first love. Avery and Cade have a lot of past and secrets to work through. Avery’s anger at Cade is much easier to understand when she confronts him with an event in this past. Parts of this story were heart wrenching but it was worth it to discover whether they could let go the past and find a future together.

    First Rapture by Alexandra Ivy is about a Maddy being reunited with her first love. Maddy shares herself with Luc on her eighteenth birthday. She tells him she loves him and he walks away. Maddy leaves the next day with her heartbroken. She gets her big break in New York as a model and starts her own agency. She, however, is unable to have a committed relationship with another man due to her issues with Luc leaving her. She returns to Vegas eight years later with a plan to have revenge sex with Luc so she can move on with her life. Luc realizes that Maddy is the best thing that ever happened to him – and works to win her back.

    First Taste of Darkness by Cynthia Eden is set in Las Vegas. Jess is jilted by her fiancé but goes on her honeymoon to Vegas anyway, alone. She goes to a Club where she encounters Blake (who owns half the real estate in Vegas). Blake is only good at one night stands and Jess is just looking for a walk on the wild side – she needs to shed her good girl image – so they hook up for the night. Needless to say Blake is not all that he seems and after an attempt on his life he and Jess hook up at another of his hotels. There are some misunderstandings –a kidnapping – and a friend who isn’t really a friend -- but it was a quick read with some good suspense.

    First Ink by Laura Wright is a first person POV story. The chapters go back and forth between Addy’s POV and Rush’s POV. Although this does not work for every story it worked well for this one. You could get both POV while still maintain the storyline. Addy dumped Rush at the homecoming dance in front of the entire school, causing Rush to leave town the next day. Over the years Addy has tries to apologize but Rush will not return her calls, letters or e-mails. Finally she attends a convention where Rush is the featured tattoo artist and by a little deception manages to be selected to be tattooed. Addy works to talk to Rush and break down his defenses about the way she treated him in school. I don’t normally like a switching POV story but it really worked for this one.

    First Surrender by Katie Reus is a spin-off her of her Red Stone Security Series. Sierra and Hayden are buddies. Hayden has harbored a secret lust for Sierra for almost a year, Sierra feels the same way but each are afraid to let the other know and lost their friendship. When Sierra is attacked at work Hayden gets his chance to get her to himself and “make his move”. There is a short appearance by Iris and Wyatt, which tied the story into Red Stone. This was a quick read with some suspense.

    First Temptation by Joan Swan is about a border patrol agent on her first undercover assignment. All I can say is wow do Zoe ad Taft have some kind of chemistry. They start out antagonist towards one another but that morphs into something super-hot and it’s not anger. The story takes place quite quickly – a matter of days and therefore the relationship develops quite quickly also – but what else can you do when you’re working undercover in a sex toy store?

    The Wicked Firsts Box set is a great collection of wonderful authors that is full of suspense, romance and steamy sex.
    All six stories have great plots that full of intrigue and action that engage the reader from the beginning of each one. The reader certainly won’t be bored with the twists and turns in each tale.
     The characters are all strong believable characters that draw you further into the story and supporting characters that add depth and character to each book.
    All the couples in the stories have lots of chemistry and emotional drama along with lots of hot and steamy sex that burn up the pages and leave the readers wanting more.  
    In Elisabeth Naughton’s First Exposure, Avery is exposed to the kinky side of sex while dealing with missing friends and her past relationship Cade, her partner. The suspense builds as together they learn just what is going on at that resort.
    In Alexandra Ivy’s First Rapture, Madison returns to Vegas to confront her Wicked First and to get closure and maybe a little revenge.  The romance and suspense builds when Luc plans put a major kink in her plans.
    In Cynthia Eden’s First Taste of Darkness, the action starts off right at the beginning and doesn’t stop as the good girl Jess decides to take her first walk on the dark side. Things don’t go her way when rich and powerful Blake’s past comes back to haunt him putting both their lives in danger.
    In Laura Wright’s First Ink, Addison returns to Vegas to try to get over the wrong she done to her one and only love. She allows Rush a famous tattoo artist to give her first wicked tattoo just so he will listen, but because of the past, neither knows where they really stand with each other even thought their attraction is just as strong as before.
    In Katie Reus’ First Surrender, Sierra struggles to keep her attraction to Hayden secret, but finds out that he is just as attracted to her when a friend betrays them and endangers Sierra’s life.  Can Hayden handle being her wicked first lover.
    In Joan Swan’s First Temptation, Counterterrorist Agent Taft Walker agrees to partner with Border Patrol Agent, Zoe Brooks on her first wicked undercover assignment to capture a member of the Cartel. The suspense builds as they try to carry out their assignment while fighting their red hot chemistry. 
    Overall, this is an awesome set of books by six wonderful authors, that kept me thoroughly entertained and on the edge of my seat. I only had one disappointment with this box set and that was I wish they all would have been longer.

    "Wicked Firsts" has 6 stories by 6 AMAZING authors! It is impossible for me to name a favorite story in this bundle. They're all equally awesome! Each had me falling in love with the men and each had me wishing I was the women. I'm a huge fan of alpha males and alpha women. I honestly don't care for weak women in books. They can play the damsel in distress, but I need to see they're strong too. Scarlett O'hara is the prime example of that and those are the types of heroines I look for in books. Soft and feminine yet strong enough to keep their Alpha men in line and to be equals. That's why I love all of these authors and stories. They represent all of that and more.

    This is an anthology of erotic romantic suspense. I will give a brief review of all the stories and then a final overall
    review.

    First Exposure by Elisabeth Naughton

    This is the story of Avery Scott, an all American actress, in search of her missing friend/assistant. The PI firm she
    hires assigns Cade Blackwell to her case. Avery and  Cade have a history, a case of first love gone very, very
    wrong. The trail leads them to a swingers resort in Jamaica. It doesn't take a genius to see where this one goes
    First Exposure set the tone for the rest of the anthology. Hot, hot, hot! Most of the story is set at an adults only
     resort where ANYTHING goes. I enjoyed this portion of the book. Avery and Cade were believable characters,
    although I would definitely have made Cade grovel.... A LOT. His overall demeanor in the beginning had me
    looking for my cast iron skillet. I would have liked to have seen Avery rub her success in Cade's face just a little.
    My vengeful wishes aside, this was a good example of a sweet story peppered with some very steamy sex.

    First Rapture by Alexandra Ivy

    Madison Phillips had a teenage crush on Luc Angeli that she made no secret about. On the night Luc finally gives
    in to Madison's crush, he leaves before the sweat had dried on their satisfied skin. Crushed and heartbroken,
    Madison has spent the following years dreaming of getting her pound of flesh and now she is ready to collect. I love a good revenge story and if that story has great sex well all the better. Once again however, The heroine,
    Madison is not quite as vicious as I would have liked. I mean, if a guy takes your virginity and then says basically
    "Have a nice life", well, I would have been out for blood, or even better, his prized body parts. Luc is repentant, to
    a degree. He decides he wants Madison back in his life and then goes about ensuing his desire. Hmmm, too easy.
    There is also the meddlesome best friend ( I am not a fan of these), who decides Madison doesn't know what's
    best for herself. Despite these minor glitches, Alexandra Ivy still spins a good tale and provided the reader with a
    good tale.

    First Taste of Darkness by Cynthia Eden

    Jess Delaney has recently found out her fiancé was not the faithful soul he should have been. Heartbroken she
    decides to have a wild night in Vegas. She catches the eye of Blake Landon, a big fish in the Vegas scene.
    Always fearful of gold diggers, Blake is captivated by Jess's innocence. Jess gets caught in Blake's world of high
    finance and those who would try to take what Blake has built.This was an action packed story with great suspense
    and intrigue. Still managing to be an extremely sexy story, this section of the anthology had a truly enjoyable thread
     of mystery and as the title states, darkness. Jess was truly a fish out of water in this book. The world in which she
    finds herself is completely foreign and catches her flat footed. I completely believed the characters and there
    reactions to their circumstances. I would definitely have bought this book as a stand alone.

    First Ink by Laura Wright

    Rush Merrick was one of the most sought after tattoo artist in the country. He has a waiting list a mile long and
    numbers many celebrities among his clients. Addison is the one that broke his young heart in a very public and
    humiliating way. After years of regretting her actions, Addison shows up at Rush's shop for a tat and maybe
    forgiveness.When I first started this book I discovered it was written in first person, and I was all like "No, Laura,
    No!". Then I discovered it was written from both POV's. This was an awesome surprise. One of the reasons I'm
    not a fan of first person perspective is not knowing why the other characters react the way they do. Laura dealt
    with this issue spectacularly. With her signature hotness, Laura spins the story of heartbreak, reunion and
    redemption with a master's touch. Rush was a totally sympathetic, but droolworthy hero. Addison not so much.
    Can you tell I'm a heroaphile? Addison does redeem herself in a most public way, which saved her IMHO. Once
    again, Laura Wright hits it out of the park.

    First Surrender by Katie Reus

    At 22 years of age, Sierra is head chef at one of the top chefs in Vegas, an amazing achievement for one so
    young. She has had a major crush on the new head of security , Hayden, almost from the moment they met.
    Now best friends, neither realizes that they both want to move from he friend zone to the bedroom. I really liked all
    the books in this anthology and adore all the writers and their talent, but this was hands down my favorite story. I
    love a friends to lovers theme. I was totally into Hayden and Sierra's story and was sorry the book was so short,
    and shock of all shocks, I had not one single complaint about Sierra. First Surrender moves quickly without leaving
    important details behind. There were great secondary characters and a compelling tale in which the sex was an
    extra spice and not the entire dish. If I wasn't already a fan of Katie's, this book would have tipped the scales.

    First Temptation by Joan Swan

    Zoe Brooks is a much respected Border Patrol Supervisor, but she is looking for a change. With a chance to work
    undercover on the capture of one of the biggest drug and weapons smugglers, she sees her chance. From the
    moment he laid eyes on the butch female, Taft Walker made no bones about the fact that he didn't believe Zoe had
    the chops to work this case. He made no effort at diplomacy and told her point blank that she wasn't woman enough
     to play the femme fatale. Boy, did he have that one wrong. It has to be obvious by now that I am all about the
    heroes. That being said..... I would have clocked Taft soon after opening his mouth. He did wind up eating his words
    , and then decided he wanted to get Zoe in the sack, no strings attached. Zoe handles the situation professionally,
    and with great aplomb. She is just as blunt with Taft about her " not with her co-workers" policy. Their journey
    together was sexy, danger filled, and with a great underlying humor. There is a very sexy pole dancing scene that
    proved beyond a shadow of a doubt that Zoe was most assuredly all woman. All in all this was a truly enjoyable
    ending to this anthology.

    This is a set of stories that I really, really regret was not in print. I would have paid the extra money in a heartbeat.
    To have all these amazing authors in one place is beyond the measly amount one would pay. While I did like some
    tales better than others, it's like comparing diamonds and sapphires, I wouldn't sneeze at either one. These are
    stories I will read and reread over and over and is a "must have" for lovers of erotic romance. Brava, ladies, brava.

    Hot, steamy, and lots of feeling of love.

    I bought this when it first came out and just now decided to read it. Wished I stared it when first bought, the package was that good! A few of my authors I read all the time and a few new ones I will add to my must read witers list. Favorite title was First Ink, I dig the first person writing skills of the author. Yes hot and steamy but the feelings of deep love makes the package worth it.
