Release Date: October 5th
Genre: YA/NA crossover romance
When seventeen-year-old Eloise Stone finds herself half way across the world, moving into her Uncle's pool house, she expects things to be ... awkward. She doesn't expect to come face-to-face with the boy from last summer. The boy that made her feel things she'd never felt before. But a year is a long time, and Lo isn’t the same girl she was then. Besides, they’re family now.
Maverick Prince acts as if he doesn’t remember her, treating Lo like nothing more than an annoying younger sister, and not in a ‘he cares’ way, just in a ‘he’s an arsehole’ way. One thing‘s for sure, he isn’t just dangerous for her sanity—he’s hazardous for her heart.
Lo thought moving to Wicked Bay was the worst of her problems, but as life begins to unravel around her, she’s going to find out it’s only the beginning…
The angst! This story is so intense, and the angst is so thick, I couldn’t put it down for a single second. The triangles are twisty, and characters are multidimensional. I spent the majority of the book frustrated, and so full of hope. I never expected what came next, and I was never disappointed. I want there to be more, and I am dying to get my grabby little hands on the next book! I strongly suggest that every human read this book!

Leave it to L.A. Cotton to have you needy and on edge. Full of angst, energy, and chemistry that needs a warning Wicked Beginnings is all about the intrigue. It is full of eyebrow raising situations but not enough answers.
I need more. I need it now. I want to know all those deep dark secrets hiding behind those hooded eyes. I am twisted with the need to know everything.
It seems waiting is all I can do. But I will get more info if I have to shake these characters until they tell me everything. I mean it's only book one after all.

In a real fan of this author, her stories always pull me in I just love her writing style.
I went through a range of emotions whilst reading, I was intrigued frustrated angry. I flipped between wanting to scream and wanting to slap some characters, yes the author almost brought me to physical violence.Eloise\Lo has moved to the US with her father for a fresh start where they will be staying with relatives. I'm going to be upfront her dad is a total waste of space I wanted to throat punch him. Lo I just loved she's a great female character, she's still dealing with past events but she's opinionated & feisty and I spent most of the story wanting to hug her.Maverick/Rick aaah ! He's what I would call deep and complicated and infuriating ..... but I fell hard for him. He's a character that little by little draws you in to his web, you know he's bad for you but you only live once right ?This is a story built on layers of secrets, just as one is answered another puzzle is found. I couldn't stop reading I wanted to know what was going to happen next. Family... friends... enemies it's hard to know who to trust. I'm left with so many questions bring on book two.
