About The Wicked Aftermath:

THE WICKED AFTERMATH is an emotionally gripping story of love, loss, and hope, with a rich and entrancing happily ever after. All Wicked novels may be enjoyed as standalone romances.

When the person you blame for your grief is the only one who can save you from the pain...

Tank Wicked lost his sister and has since vowed to save everyone else in his path. He lives by the creed of the Dark Knights motorcycle club, sworn to protect and respect his community. He selflessly saves lives as a volunteer firefighter and treats the men and women who work for him at his tattoo shop like family. But life isn’t a balance scale where good deeds negate bad things to come, and one foggy night life guts Tank once again. When a car careens over the side of a bridge and into a river, Tank springs into action, plunging into the water to rescue the passengers. Four people go into the river, but only three come out alive.

Leah Yates is just trying to make it through each day. When the man she blames for her grief becomes the only one who can pull her from the depths of despair, she discovers that even hope comes at a price. Maybe this time she won't have to face it alone.


Set on the sandy shores of Cape Cod, the Wickeds feature fiercely protective heroes, strong heroines, and unbreakable family bonds. If you think bikers are all the same, you haven't met the Dark Knights. The Dark Knights are a motorcycle club, not a gang. Their members stick together like family and will stop at nothing to keep their communities safe. Some of the Wickeds’ love stories will be hilariously fun and deeply emotional, others will tear at your heartstrings and include injections of humor, but they will all leave you wishing you could climb between the pages and join them.

I don't know how Melissa Foster does it but she creates the absolute best couples ever! Tank and Leah's story is one that will grip you with so many emotions, I cried for a good majority of the book but in between Juni and Rosie had me cracking up. This story is about loss of a loved one, the process of grieving and trying to move forward, finding love, and discovering a family you didn't expect. I completed this read in a day even though I had to put it down a couple of times to compose myself, I couldn't help but go right back to it because it was sooooo good!

This story will gut you but I promise it will put you together again in the best possible way before it's over. My heart swelled with emotions throughout this story, it was so heartbreakingly beautiful you cannot help but fall in love with each and everyone in this book. From Benson aka Tank, to Leah, to the precious little girls who had me craving Pincakes for breakfast. I don't know how Ms. Foster is going to top this one, and I know I have said that before but man Tank is going to be hard to knock out of the top book boyfriend spot. 

I highly recommend this book to everyone, whether you enjoy Contemporary Romances, MC Romances, or are just looking for a good Steamy read, this is one you won't want to miss.

Happy Reading!!!
