It’s a fine line between love and hate.

Bitch ... Ice Queen ... Frigid.
Macey Prince is no stranger to a nickname or two. The words once hurt, now they’re her armor. Being a Prince might be a life sentence she can never escape but Macey isn’t willing for her heart to be collateral again.
Then in a rare moment of weakness Macey lets someone in. Without realizing, she gives a piece of herself to him and it’s not long until he wants more. To uncover the girl behind cruel words and icy stares.
She should hate him.
She does hate him.
Anything less would be a disaster waiting to happen.
But sometimes the thing we hate is the thing we need most.
Wicked Needs is the fifth book in the Wicked Bay Series but can be read as a standalone

My Thoughts:

This is the story where we get to know Maverick Prince’s sister Macey.  She seems to say one thing but wants something else.  She seems to be holding in a lot of anger, which you can almost feel coming off the page.  It was not hard to feel sorry or sad for her.

Devon Lions has a history with Rick’s girlfriend Lo Stone.  If you’ve not read their story yet, this may give you the incentive to check out what you’ve missed.  Devon is trying to learn from past mistakes.  This was where I really had to feel sorry for both our main characters.

Macey seems like a train wreck waiting to happen.  Instead of asking for help she tries to deal with it on her own and you’ll see how well that’s working out for her.  You can tell she’s screaming on the inside and with this story being told in the first person; I can hear her loud and clear.

Devon has his own issues.  He’s making life choices based on what someone else wants.  And what he wants seems so far out of his reach.  He seems like an addiction to Macey – she can’t seem to stay away.  He’s got just what she needs.  But how is going to help her with the secrets she seems to be carrying.  One good thing is that she seems to be able to open up to him.

Just like other books in this series, the main characters seem older than what they say they are.  I think of them being in college rather than getting ready to graduate from high school.  This is most evident with a few of the incidents that occur.  If you’re a parent that reads the book before deciding if a YA is appropriate for your child, be aware that there is underage drinking going on.  For me, it seems as if the parents are oblivious to what their children are doing.  You will also want to remind them that this is a work of fiction.  We also have teenagers making adult decisions.  My happiness came in knowing that this author isn’t done with this series yet.  Bad news came when I see I have to wait until next spring – it’s going to be a long winter.

About L.A. Cotton:

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.
