About the Author

Addictive Romance

Author of mature young adult and new adult novels, L A is happiest writing the kind of books she loves to read: addictive stories full of teenage angst, tension, twists and turns.

Home is a small town in the middle of England where she currently juggles being a full-time writer with being a mother/referee to two little people. In her spare time (and when she’s not camped out in front of the laptop) you’ll most likely find L A immersed in a book, escaping the chaos that is life.

Since I've started this series, Macey has always intrigued me. The frigid ice queen of one of the richest families in Wicked Bay. I was curious to see who would finally break through her frigid demeanor. I got a glimpse of her and her mystery guy in the KU Korner bedtime stories last winter and I couldn't wait for her story to be told. This broken girl found her prince charming. I loved the Macey dealt with real high school issues. There will always be the mean girls no matter how much money you have or how popular or untouchable you are. It's a fact of being a teenager. I loved watching Macey's walls melt for a guy from the wrong side of the tracks. This was a great story in this amazing series. I can't wait to see whose story is coming next.

Macey appears to have it all beauty, wealth and popular but underneath what she really wants is for people to like her for who she is not her last name or what she can do for them. After a few drinks too many she wakes up next to the last person she ever expected or wanted to be with and it was all just a big mistake or was it? In their heads they know that they should not be together as it will cause nothing but trouble for both of them however their hearts aren’t listening. Macey can’t stay away as he sees the real her underneath the bravado she presents and all he wants to do is be there for her. Secrets have a way of being revealed at the worst time and when they are will they be able to survive the storm that erupts when they are? It was great to get to know the real Macey and her guy is the last person you expected but they are perfect together. This author has a way of combining the right amount of emotion and angst into a compelling storyline and this is no exception. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

What a great continuation of this series!! Wow!! Its part of the wicked series but can be read as a stand-alone. Macey has been such a great character to keep you guessing. Its been a ride to get here and what a ride to read this book! Macey has a dark past she has kept hidden all this time. She has had it rough growing up like her brother Maverick and they both stuck together. Now that he has gone off to college she’s all alone trying to mange. She’s hurting and she is looking for a way to make it better. She has loved ones that reach out but she’s only ever relied on herself so she pushes everyone away. Reading her story was heartbreaking and I wanted to reach out to her so bad. Her finding a person that makes her feel finally was refreshing. I cant ruin the surprise and tell you. I never would have guessed, I guessed wrong, you have to read and find out!!! I can’t wait for you to enjoy this book. It was nice to catch up with the other characters of the Wicked series. Enjoy!

*voluntarily and honestly reviewed the ARC I received from Social Butterfly PR* This is about a 4.5 for me. Macey and her mystery guy really kept me guessing for the first four chapters and I thought it was a great way to start the novel. Macey's always been very angry and secluded but when you read her POV, it's a totally different perspective. There were times when I lost my patience with her and all the negativity she harbored but I think it's just because it hit a little too close to home, so I'd find relief in a change of POV or if she thankfully decided to concentrate on something else. I think I can safely say that I am too old for the drama lol I love it and I usually gobble it up but for this one, it was almost too much, and since I've read all the other installments in the series, I'm beginning to see a pattern. The writing was pretty good and I loved what Cotton concentrated on when it came to family problems and self love. It's a recommend for mature young adults and those who love drama.

I just can't quit saying how much I love this series! I have to admit that I've been "patiently" waiting for Macey's story since the very beginning. With the little tidbits we got of her from the previous books I was just really curious what her story was. I knew it was going to be angsty and heartbreaking, but oh my goodness! Macey comes across as a real B and completely shut off, but there is so much more to her. In the previous books she seems to not want anything to do with her family, but her story shows just how much her family means to her. Oh, and don't even get me started on her mystery guy and his emotional side! If you haven't started this series.... go... now.... you will not be disappointed!!

I’ve been waiting for Macey’s story since the begging of Wicked Beginnings. She never makes things easier and her choice of boy toy was completely out of left field but that’s Macey. She has to learn the hard way how to come out into the light. I’m glad she and him found their HEA.

I've been patiently waiting to read Macey's story since the first Wicked Bay book came out. She's been a b***h from the very beginning. I wanted to get to know her and understand her. We not only get that in this book but we also find out why she's okay being labeled a "cold-hearted b***h." We also get to meet the real Macey Prince who is buried so deep that you would need a shovel to dig her out. I love her and I didn't think that I really would. She's a scared, lost little girl who doesn't think she'll ever find someone who loves her for herself, not because she's a Prince or Maverick Prince's sister. We also get to meet her hero. I knew we were in for a surprise when we found out who he was but I didn't expect to be as surprised as I really was. I'm shocked but also thrilled. He was good for her. She needed him and he needed her. I cried for Macey so many times; from the secrets she shared to what almost happened to her, to her dealings with Catlin. I wanted to reach through the pages and hurt the people who didn't see any shame in hurting her. If I'm being honest (after reading all of this series so far and having to read about stupid Catlin) I kind of wish more had happened to put Catlin in her place. But since the series isn't over I'm hoping we'll eventually get that. Love this series and loved getting to know (and understand) Macey and her "boyfriend."

Full Of Emotion, Heart & Fear. 4 Stars Macey Isn't A B*tch!! That's the only spoiler you're getting out of me!! Well, she still kind of is a b*tch ~ but isn't?!? You'll understand once you've read it and you MUST read it!!! This book was full of suprises, good and bad for the characters, which means all good for us voracious readers! Macey accidentally allows her Ice Queen heart to start to thaw for the completely wrong person. She knows it will set her world on fire but she's sick of doing the right for her family when they just seen to do what ever they want regardless of her!! Trust is an extremely hard thing for this couple. Yet they're so right for one another it's almost ridiculous They can barely keep their eyes off of each other let alone their hands! But fear keeps them both in the shadows, family & friends may not understand and Macey, especially, can't face the possible backlash!! Before the end - relationships will fracture, family's will fight and friendships will faulter. Can the young lovers make it work despite all of their own issues and those from the outside pressures?? 'Wicked Needs' brings us back into the wonderful world of Wicked Bay. We get to see all of our favourite characters from the past books, even the down right awful ones!! Ggrrr I thought the story came to a conclusion a bit to quickly. I was so invested I would've liked to have seen the renewal of their relationship!! I felt surprisingly sympathetic towards Macey and her Partner They're both much nicer, sweeter & thoughtful than we ever knew!! I think this book is a fantastic addition to the series!!✨ Debbie, 1970, UK

I was wrong. So very, very wrong!!! I was certain I knew who the mystery man was. But that would be a big fat face calming belly flop of a not at all! Not only did I get Macey's leading man wrong but wow! Her frigid ice queen role never made me think about its origins until now. That was an arctic blast to my own heart. Complicated and untrusting, Macey Prince has no desire to let anyone in...especially him. She's mad at the world and she has no need or time for fools. My heart hurts doubly for these two- once I got over my shock. It's not smooth sailing but then what Prince has it easy?!? Wicked Needs answers some questions you never knew you had. It also has a brilliant segue into the next book, Wicked Hearts. Reviewed for Sweet Spot Sisterhood
