"Uncontrollable desire...."

Fresh Fiction Review

My Wicked Enemy

Reviewed by Marie Toussaint

Romance Erotica Sensual | Romance Paranormal

Carson Phillips is on the run from the notorious mage Alvaro Magellan, who has held her captive and abused her in more ways than one. The moment that Carson realizes how truly evil he is, she leaves his mansion but takes a talisman that has unimaginable power with her. The only hope that Carson has of surviving is a demon that ignites uncontrollable desire in her that she cannot resist nor deny.

Nikodemus is a warlord that has one mission: kill Magellan and his witch, Carson. When Nikodemus meets Carson, her magic pulls at him. Nikodemus doesn't know whether he should trust the tempting witch because she's his enemy but, at the same time he can't keep his hands off of her. Magellan will stop at nothing in order to get Carson. Will Nikodemus be able to save Carson?

Carolyn Jewel has created a very unique world within this book. At times I felt that world was too complex because there's a fine line when an author is world building -- You don't want to seem like you're talking down to the reader and you don't want to make it hard for the reader to keep with the storyline. I also felt at times some of the characters weren't as well developed because they just came out of the blue without really any explanation as to why there were there in the first place.

I feel the need to let you guys know that some of the love scenes will not be to everyone's cup of tea. The love scenes with Nikodemus and Carson were pretty hot! And, I liked that after everything Carson been through, she was still a good person and wanted to help people in need. Overall, I thought this was a pretty decent book in a unique world and should definitely be on people's to read list.
