Publisher's Summary

Scorching heat, laugh-out-loud humor, and swoon-worthy moments abound in this sexy new stand-alone romance by New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling author Melissa Foster.

What happens when the player gets played?

Sidney Carver has a big problem, and he goes by the name of Dwayne “Gunner” Wicked: six-plus feet of muscular, motorcycle-riding, animal-loving deliciousness. Gunner is her boss, roommate, and best friend. They’ve seen each other through life-altering injuries and unimaginable losses, and they work side by side at Wicked Animal Rescue, fulfilling their passion to save animals. Unfortunately, Gunner is also the man Sidney is in love with, and he's the ultimate player. As her former military comrade, Gunner sees her as his buddy—just one of the guys. Sidney is at her wit’s end, ready to risk the friendship and job she adores for a chance at forever love with the man she can’t live without. Like any good marine, she comes up with a mission. Enter "Operation Get My Guy".

Gunner loves his life. He has a family he adores, a brotherhood that always has his back, and a host of willing women to warm his bed. As the owner of Wicked Animal Rescue, he saves lives and works with his best friend, Sid, the coolest woman on the planet. When Sid concocts a crazy plan to win his cousin’s heart, Gunner reluctantly agrees to be her wingman and comes up with a plan of his own.

Practices heat up as roommates become teammates. Let the wicked fun begin....

No cheating. No cliff-hangers. Guaranteed to melt panties and leave listeners hopelessly in love with the sinfully delicious Wickeds.

About The Wickeds: Dark Knights at Bayside

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. These men are wickedly alpha and intensely loyal, but they are not alpha-holes.

The Wicked’s

I have listened to the first three books and I felt that they were absolutely wonderful. The narrators were wonderful. The story line was wonderful and I’m disappointed because I can’t get the fourth book. The wicked truth I just need to know when that would be available on Audible so I could purchase it.

Melissa Foster is a great writer and I truly love her books.

Best friends equal forever love

Can best friends become forever in love? Dwayne “Gunnar” and Sidney have been best friends ever since meeting while in the military. But what happens when one friend develops feelings and the other continues to not notice the other? All kinds of shenanigans happen, that's what. So much happens in this story, not only with Gunnar and Sidney but with the rest of the family. Tank and Leah get married!! I just love large extended families that always have unconditional love for anyone they consider family blood or not. Plenty of heat between the sheets and awesome character development. Completely in love with this series and especially Sid and Gunnar. Totally recommend Crazy, Wicked Love by Melissa Foster. I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review. *****

Adorable 🥰

I love Melissa's books because even though they touch on some difficult subjects, they are still relatively low angst/drama and still full of good feels. This was another in her MC series. I consider these MC-lite as they aren't dark and gritty and violent (I do love those as well), but instead more of a "we take care of our own" club. Sid and Gunny were such a good fit and so flippin cute. The narration is wonderful. Jacob and Ava are great together and bring a very similar energy to their performances which makes them a great pair to listen to.

Romance and Rescue dogs, need I say more?

Loved Crazy, Wicked Love

Another great story in this series by Melissa Foster. I loved Gunner and Sidney’s relationship, their friendship turning into romantic love as well as the love they had for their pet animals. Ava Erickson and Jacob Morgan were terrific narrating this book and I loved their performances.

Gunner and Sidney

We have all wondered about these two now we know. This story will take you on a ride you won't want to get off. The dynamic of these two will have you hooked from the first word to the very end. The narration was perfect. I would highly recommend it to anyone and everyone

EXCELLENT READ!

This was an excellent read. The relationship (friends to lovers) between Sid and Gunner makes you impatient to find out what is going to happen next. The narration was excellent and kept me entertained. The author did an excellent job with the character builds and plot. I can't wait to read the next book! I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Fantastic!

Melissa never disappoints me when she writes a story and this one is no exception.
Sydney had fallen in love with her roommate Gunner. He happened to be her best friend and boss. She hated it when Gunner brought women into the house to sleep with him. They had both been in the Marines and both loved animals They wanted each other but neither would say anything, so they just kept working on getting the rescue animals a home.
Ava Erikson and Jacob Morgan are both master narrators. They bring all the emotions of the characters.

Friends to lovers

What a great story of two people who are best friends, roommates and working partners and they finally maneuver to be each others ride or die person. Sidney and Gunner have been in dangerous situations, have been there in the tough times but Sid wants more. She loves Dwayne "Gunner" Wicked but he only sees her a a buddy and friend, not as a woman so she must do what she has to in order to get his attention or she must move on from his life. Gunner loves Sid but he has never wanted to risk what they have on the chance of something more. When he thinks he may loose her to another man he finally opens his eyes to what's been there all along.

Love these characters and this entire family. This was a really good story and I enjoyed it and recommend it.

Ava Erikson and Jacob Morgan were great to listen to. They brought what was needed for Sid and Gunner.

Good addition to this series

This was a great friends to lovers read that Ms. Foster does a great job of creating. This addition to the Dark Knights Bayside series is no exception either. In this book we get Gunner and Sidney's story and what a great read it was. '

Gunner and Sidney are friends while serving in the military and that friendship continued once they were out of the service as well. The pair open a dog rescue together once their time in the service ends - one through retirement and one through injured discharge. Their friendship continues until Sidney decides that she wants to be seen as more than just a friend and takes measures to be seen by Gunner as more.

Gunner who always looked at Sidney as his friend goes on one roller coaster ride of emotions when he realizes that he wants more. The banter between the pair is fun and the chemistry once they give into it is off the charts.

The narration that was performed by Jacob Morgan and Ava Erikson was performed well. This pair of narrators do a great job bringing the stories that they read to life and truly make them an enjoyable listening experience.

This was a great read and a great addition to this series. I enjoyed the return of the characters from the previous series and I look forward to seeing what is to come in the future for this series. Overall, I recommend this book to others.

Wicked Good

First of all narration Jacob and Ava are absolute perfection! I think these 2 could make listening to washing machine manual being read sound fabulous! Love!
The story is so sweet of military best friends into lovers. I usually get pretty frustrated with this trope. This one is done very well! Sid & Gunner are so romantic with their gestures they don’t even realize.
Definitely worth a credit great listen great story!

Crazy Wicked Love

Melissa Foster is the queen of friends to lover troupe, with such a close nit world of her characters its impossible for friends not to become lovers over time.

Crazy Wicked Love sees the player get played and a plan snare said player almost fall through! Sidney and Gunner have spent a lot time together, in the military, in their jobs, heck they are even roommates but they have never shared so much as a kiss or their bed together!

Sid isn’t exactly sure when her feelings began to change towards Gunner, but since he has a revolving door or girls coming and going she also isn’t exactly sure how to make her feelings know to him. She is the polar opposite to the girls he brings home. She is terrified that once she crosses this line it may ruin everything they have together.

Gunner is a player by all accounts, and he see’s sid as his best friend. He would lying if he never saw her as anything more but like Sid he didn’t want to cross that line, but his jealous side emergers when Sid asks him to help her learn to flirt to get a guy she has her eyes on. Seeing her flirt with other guys especially his cousin makes him almost see the light, and see her more as a friend, work colleague and roommate.

Do Gunner and Sid risk it all and find their happy ever after? This is of course a Foster book so you already know the answer to that! This story has it all, strong family and friend connections, an undeniable love connection and a whole cast if furry friends that you will just fall in love with also.
