Wicked Steps by Cory D. Cyr - Review

Title: Wicked Steps
Author: Cory Cyr
Genre: Erotic Adult Romance

Strong language, explicit sexual situations, M/F. F/F. 18+ If anyone had asked ten years ago, I never would have imagined I’d be a thirty-five-year-old widow today. I could tell you I married Hartman Wick out of love, but it’s complicated. We were friends. He was dying. And he needed me. He also made me an offer I couldn’t refuse. Of course, I agreed with the very best of intentions. But we all know what the road to hell is paved with. All I ever dreamed of was owning my own gallery. A place where my best friend and I could introduce the masses to inspiring and new artists. Hartman promised me the deed to the gallery, wealth, and security for the rest of my life. 
Instead, I find myself in a war with his estranged son Kieran—my stepson and one of the most prolific painters, known for his erotic shock art. He’s been plotting revenge against his father for years, and now that Daddy’s dead, he’s seized the opportunity. Between the constant battles, heated exchanges, and threats of blackmail, I find myself inexplicitly drawn to this twenty-four-year old. He’s beautiful, seductive, arrogant, and evil. Not only is he a gifted artist, but he’s certainly inherited some of his father’s more unsavory traits. He truly is a Wick. But then he takes things too far and pushes me to my breaking point. I’ve had enough. In retaliation, I make a plan. And I almost feel sorry for him—almost. I’m sure, even as a child, he was never read a single fairy tale. Poor bastard. He has no idea how truly wicked a stepmother can be.

This book was another amazing work of art! The story is mind-blowing and drew me in immediately, and held me captive until the final words were read.

Wicked was tattooed on his arm, it was in his heart, it consumed him, it was his name in the art world, but it was understating the degree of anger and hate Kieran Wick truly felt. Kieran's crash course for revenge had him vying to unseat Satan and take over the title of hell's ruler. He'd been exacting his plan in his mind - his father's widow must pay for his father's mistakes, period. He planned to do to her what he wanted to do to his father - ruin her. Then he met her.

Ellery St. Claire had suffered at the hands of Kieran's father in a five-year marriage from hell. She knew evil first hand, she had married him. When he died, she thought it couldn't get any worse. Ellery wanted to regain her life. She had been promised financial security and the art gallery. She just wanted to salvage her life and find her happiness. She was freed of the devil's reigns. The she met his son.

Kieran and Elle's clash is a list of adjectives including intense, heated, passionate, and unexpected.

 There's a fine line between love and hate, and these two broken sparring individuals walk a tightrope. They've both suffered at the hands of Kieran's father. So many people have. But can they get past the hate and vindictiveness?

When you despise one human being so much, you lose yourself and can make some of the worst decisions of your life.

When you love one human being so much, you can lose yourself and can make some of the worst decisions of your life.

I've read every one of Cory's book and love them all, but this one is absolutely fantastic!
