The Wicked Series, 4

Lindsey has never really fit in with the rest of her peers. When everyone else her age was out partying and sleeping around, she was home studying. By all accounts, she's innocent. Nobody she’s ever dated makes her feel the passion she’s always longed for—until a chance run-in with an alluring doctor more than double her age.

Ian Young is the only man who has sparked something deep inside of her. With his sophisticated good looks and pure sexual magnetism, he makes her feel like a woman. The only problem with him? He’s her best friend's dad.

Yet, she's unable to ignore her growing feelings for Ian—something that doesn’t go unnoticed by others. Secrets are revealed and dangerous obsessions are brought to light as she is forced to make hard decisions that could alter her life forever.

“Ya-yeah,” I stuttered. “That’s how we know each other. He’s my mom’s doctor.” When nobody spoke I felt the irresistible urge to fill the silence. “I mean, when you asked if I knew him, I thought you meant did I really know him. Which I don’t … know him, I mean. We only met one time at the hospital. And even then we didn’t really talk. So, no, I don’t really know him at all. Just that he’s a doctor and his name is Dr. Young … I mean Ian, Dr. Ian Young,” I rambled on.

Melonie screwed up her face as she studied me. “Spazz,” she mumbled under her breath so only I could hear. I kept ignoring her as I tried to calm my racing heart.

Everything got quiet then as Ian and I stared at one another. I could see a glint of humor in his gaze. Did he find my awkwardness funny? My face flamed at the thought.

“Right,” Anna broke the silence. She walked up to her dad and looked at him before addressing the room. “Not that I thought I would need to explain this, but Dad here helped raise me. I was like, two, when he married my mom. My bio dad is a shit and didn’t want anything to do with me so he stepped up.” She grinned up at Ian who smiled back down at her lovingly. I felt embarrassment flood my body yet again. “That’s why we have different last names.” She laughed as she glanced at me. “Sorry for the confusion.” She shrugged before looking back at her dad and smiling. “Just because it didn’t work out between him and my mom, doesn’t mean he stops being my dad,” she said before she hugged his side.

I felt lower than dirt at that moment. What had come over me that I felt the need to question Anna about who her dad was? Even if I had the hots for him, I had been completely inappropriate.

I eyed Ian and said the first thing that popped into my head as an apology. “I’m sorry, sir.” I winced at my own awkwardness. Sir? Who says shit like that!

Something flickered in Ian’s eyes at my words. Something dark and untamed that called to me in a visceral way. I stumbled over my words as I turned away from the imposing male in question and faced his daughter. “Anna, I’m so sorry, I shouldn’t have s—”

She waved her hand at me, effectively cutting me off. “It’s no big deal, you didn’t know. Honestly, if I went on vacation and ran into my mom’s doctor I would probably wig out too.” She grinned at me before clapping her hands together. “All right, let’s figure out the room situation.” She practically skipped down one of the halls that led to the bedrooms.

I stood still as Ian and I continued to stare at each other. Melonie seemed to take that moment to embarrass me further by bumping into me as she walked by, causing me to stumble over one of the bags I dropped. “Oops, sorry,” she fake-apologized as I regained my footing. Bitch.

I watched as she swayed her hips as she walked up to Ian. Even though she had her back to me, I could tell she was giving him a sultry look. To his credit, he never took his gaze off me until she stopped in front of him. I nearly gagged as she tossed her arms around him and gave him a hug. He lightly patted her back in a way that you could see the hug was not warranted on his side.

“Thank you so much for letting us stay at your cabin, Dr. Young,” she said as she pulled away from him. I saw a tinge of red as she pushed her tits out for him, held her hands behind her back, and swayed back and forth. “I sure wish I had a daddy like you.” She pouted and I wanted nothing more than to rip her hair out at that moment. I knew exactly what she was trying to do.

She sauntered off after Anna as Ben walked past me to join them. He eyed Ian warily as he passed him on his way. He halted by the hallway that would lead to the bedrooms as his gaze trailed back to me. “You coming, Lindsey Bug?” he asked.

I could have sworn I saw Ian’s jaw clench at the nickname but it was gone before the blink of an eye. I nodded and stepped over the luggage at my feet. Ben turned toward the girls again and stepped out of view.

I tried not to look at him as I passed but it was an impossible task as he stepped in front of me. My breath caught as he gripped my upper arm and pulled me closer to him. I closed my eyes to ward off that ache I now associated with him.

“Hello, Bambi,” he growled.

Arousal surged through me as I remembered my dream. I kept my gaze trained forward as my breathing accelerated.

“Don’t call me that,” I mumbled and he chuckled. He stepped closer to me as his hand trailed up my biceps to my neck, leaving shivers in his wake. He slipped his hand under my hair and gripped me firmly, forcing me to look up at him. I gasped softly as the action sent awareness crackling across my scalp. His gaze flew to my lips.

“Why?” he whispered as he inched closer.

“B-because I don’t think you mean the cute little forest animal in the cartoon and it-it’s not appropriate,” I stuttered. He was so close now I could almost taste him. The pounding between my legs was making it hard to focus. All I could think about was his lips on mine.

I nearly moaned as he stepped even closer now, every breath I took caused my breasts to rub against his chest. He bent down and I thought he was going to kiss me until he stopped and stared into my eyes. “See, that’s the thing,” he murmured as his lips lightly grazed against mine. Whatever game he was playing, I was clearly losing as I trembled against him. “When I think of you, it’s the furthest thing from appropriate,” he whispered before he gripped my hip.

“Lindsey, come see your room!” Anna’s voice broke through the lusty fog I found myself in and I jumped back away from Ian. He let me go with a devious grin that told me he knew exactly the effect he was having on me.

“C-coming!” I yelled as I tried to skirt around him again. I almost made it when he grabbed me again, causing me to look up at him once more.

“Not yet,” he murmured so quietly that I wondered if he had said anything at all.

Great age gap romance!
Written by Ash J on 31st Oct 2023

This was a great read. I loved both the characters and it was really easy to imagine them as real people. Their chemistry was awesome and the story was very steamy. I liked how this story kind of relates to one of the previous in this series.

A steamy read
Written by Hotrelle on 4th Jul 2023

This is one steamy story that builds as you read it. At each end of the story it is obvious that this is part of a larger series, but it reads really well as a standalone too. It is another one I will endeavour to go back and read the whole series from the start.

Ian & Lindsey

I enjoyed Ian and Lindsey’s book. It was an intriguing, fun read. And am voluntarily leaving my review.

Taboo Age-Gap Romance
Written by JennT on 4th Jul 2023

Lynsday was lust-struck by silver fox Dr. Ian Young since they day she met him at the hospital as her mom recovered from an attack. She thinks he might be attracted to her too, but she has such limited expertise with boys, she just isn’t sure. This story starts off tentative and sweet, and explodes into a soap opera melodrama of frenemies/enemies, stalkerish behaviours, secrets kept and taboo stolen moments. The drama is intense in this one, but I was happy that Ian and Lynsday found a way to their unconventional happily ever after.

Written by Babs on 4th Jul 2023

The fourth book in the Wicked Series, an age gap story. This is Lindsey and her best friend's father Dr.Ian Young's story. The story is well written and held my interest. I received a copy of this book via Evernight and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Good story
Written by Jamee h on 4th Jul 2023

This is a really good book. The storyline is great, and it is a spicy story. I would definitely recommend reading it.

Will their chance at a HEA be destroyed by secrets?
Written by Nicole P on 4th Jul 2023

If you love age gap romance that includes romantic suspense with some darkness then the author has you covered with Lindsey & Ian's story. She's busy studying whilst those around her are partying. There's no passion with those she's dated until she meets him. He's a Doctor, more than double her age & her bestie's dad. The connection between them is undeniable but will that be enough when secrets are revealed? A fantastic read that I couldn't put down. I look forward to the author's next book.

Written by Lucy m on 4th Jul 2023

Wow that was an amazing read. It had romance, humor, action and was so hot you have to turn your fan on high. I liked Lindsey and Ian, and how protective he was over her. I also liked Lindsey and Anna's friendship.

Wicked Reading
Written by Danee on 4th Jul 2023

Unfortunately, we have come to the end of The Wicked Series, because this is the fourth and final part. Just like the other parts, this book also has a story that will hold your attention from start to finish. A steamy age difference story and a female protagonist who, once she has found that little bit of self-confidence, becomes a force to be reckoned with. This entire series is highly recommended to read, full of reading pleasure and enjoyment.

Written by Victoria.W on 4th Jul 2023

Sexy age gap read. The spice and chemistry is highly combustible. Ian gives Lindsey the confidence she needs to be unashamed and embrace her sexual desires. Despite the stalker part this was a great age gap best friend father read.

Slow Burn to Quick to Finish
Written by creative.wilson on 4th Jul 2023

The book was a nice slow burn pace until the last few chapters when EVERYTHING happened. All was revealed, all was resolved, all was completed in about five chapters. I liked the characters but it took about half the book to realize the wedding they are at in chapter 1 is the FMC's mom's good friend. I don't know if it just skimmed over that or if it was not clear. This book will be recommended to anyone who likes a slow-burn, spicy, quick read.

?Great Book?
Written by Amy J on 4th Jul 2023

Once I started reading Wickedly Innocent I couldn’t put it down. Lindsey and Ian’s story was extremely HOT and I loved it!!!

Absolutely Beautiful and Addictive Read
Written by Jean-R on 4th Jul 2023

This is book four in The Wicked series and it is Lindsey and Ian’s story. Lindsey had never been a confidant person due to having a extra bit of weight on her and constantly being humiliated at school so at twenty one she still had her innocence intact and couldn’t see it changing any time soon even though she had a big crush on Ian who is a doctor and a lot older than her but while at a wedding with all the couples around her she felt even more alone than ever and then something happened that made her realise that she had totally embarrassed herself yet again. When Lindsay’s best friend Anna decided that she was going to take Lindsay away on a break for her birthday she was not only shocked that Ian was there but also that he was her best friend’s stepdad and divorced from her mom but they still all had a great relationship and this break was going to change Lindsey’s life completely but also put her in a very dangerous position. Ian had wanted Lindsey for so long and now he decided to find out if she felt the same way especially when there connection and chemistry was so strong between them so when they started spending time together the feelings that they had for each other just couldn’t be denied but keeping it a secret from Anna was about to blow up in there faces causing complications that could break there friendship apart. There are twists and turns along the way that will have you on the edge of your seat while turning the pages to see what the outcome would be for them all. I couldn’t put this book down and read it in one sitting because it was so addictive and I can’t wait to read more books by this author in the future.

Wickedly Innocent
Written by Makeen on 4th Jul 2023

Lindsey’s story is one of the best I’ve read about an awakening of sensuality. Ian is her best friend”s father, a doctor, and a stunning silver fox. Their attraction is visceral from their first encounter. She resists her attraction because of her friendship with Anna. A group trip skiing turns into a beautifully written sexual romance, with some complications from a stalkerish guy friend and a jealous viper. A. E.’s Wickedly Innocent is aptly titled and as compelling as the previous books in this series. Her characters are memorable and mesmerizingly gorgeous, the dialogue is filthy hot, and the setting provides lots of interesting scenes. Al.E. gives you some danger and suspense which adds to the overall feeling of overcoming the odds when finding your forever love. A very good installment to this series.

Secrets, suspense, and satisfaction
Written by RahiaLeight on 4th Jul 2023

Lindsey was really relatable and I loved the tale. The build up on all fronts was calculated and well played. The building of suspense through their trip to Colorado kept you wondering when the other shoe would drop. The explosion at the end was not so much unexpected as much as it didn't play out quite like I thought it would. I thoroughly enjoyed the interaction between Lindsey and Ian. Overall, it was a fantastic tale.

Great Story
Written by Merry J on 4th Jul 2023

This steamy read had me all caught up in it. It is an age gap BDSM with a young girl, one smoking hot doctor and a whole lot of drama. Lindsey finds herself attracted to her best friend's dad who also treated her mother. Will she lose her friendship over the relationship.

Wickedly Innocent
Written by Stacii on 4th Jul 2023

Lindsey and Ian’s story is a silver fox/ age gap, Virgin story. These two meet when her bf, Anna, gets all her friends together for a trip to her dad’s,Ian, cabin. Their close proximity and chemistry has them seeing each other but trying to not act for Anna’s sake. But it is such a good book with him helping her overcome her issues with her body and her sticking up for herself

Great Book
Written by Jeanne R on 4th Jul 2023

This is the fourth book I've read written by A.E. Nalie; I can’t wait to read more of her books. This is the fourth book in the Wicked Series; it is a stand-alone book. The story is about Lindsey & Ian. I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.

Written by Lynn on 9th Jun 2023

I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book. A great hot read. Lindsey was enamored with Ian from the first moment she met him when he was her moms doctor. She never thought he would ever feel the same for her. The kicker ended up being when she met her roommates father. Guess he was.... Ian.

Enjoyed this book so much--Great addition to the series!
Written by Andrea R on 9th Jun 2023

This book was so engaging and you develop almost an instant understanding to the characters. I was mesmerized by this book couldn't put it down (didn't want to put it down) I just wanted to keep reading it and the ups and downs were what worked to keep me so interested from start to finish. Characters were so "real" that you had to problem relating to the story actually. This book in the series was just so good--LOVED IT!!

The final book in A.E. Nalle's The Wicked Series
Written by Natalie22 on 9th Jun 2023

Another great addition to the series. Taboo best friends dad. his whole series was amazing. I truly recommend it. -age gap -forced proximity -protective mmc

Love it!
Written by Diana A on 9th Jun 2023

All the books in this series are great, but this is what I was missing, an age gap romance. I love how confident Lindsey got after being with Ian and how her new sexual drive was increasing. And wow with the blurb of the next sotry about Ben!!!! That gave me goosebumps!!

Good read
Written by Pauli on 9th Jun 2023

Like the other books in the series, this plot pushes the envelope of intrigue ever so slightly. You have your romance with underlying tension between the characters and below that, is a totally different story developing that will make your head spin. I had a great time trying to figure out the subtle clues weaving thru the story....

Hot, hot, hot and oh so steamy!!!
Written by Sarah ES on 9th Jun 2023

What a page turner this book turned out to be. I had a seriously hard time putting it down to get my chores done! The twists that kept coming, the amazing characters and of course the HOT and STEAMY moments between Lynsey and Ian oh my!!! Such a guilty pleasure with a wickedly hot HEA!!

Wickedly innocent -age gap
Written by Susan_C on 9th Jun 2023

Lindsey is reserved doesn’t go out much prefers to stay in. Suffered from being tormented for not being what “society” deems what a female should look like. She has never had anything serious in the boyfriend department. Ian is much older then Lindsey and is a doctor and also her best friends father. Best friend, age gap, romance with a crazy/stalker friend. I really enjoyed Lindsey story. The chemistry and sexy time was crazy steamy hot ?!! This was about learning to love yourself and speaking up. The whole Wicked series as been good but I think Lindsey was my fav. Excited for Ben/Ryker story.
