Power, lust, legal intrigue. This is where sex and injustice meet. Sid Rivers and Jack Brown are two sides of the same coin. One is a lawyer with his own firm and dreams of money and power; the other is a criminal with a lengthy record and a quest for vengeance. When they meet, sparks fly. But was their meeting an accident? Or, was it planned by the billionaires who want to control their destiny? The Love of Wicked Men is an erotic journey into the underbelly of the legal profession, the corporate culture of profit-at-any-cost, and the secret world of industrial espionage.

The Love of Wicked Men was a very intense and fascinating book. I really like Mr. Shire's writing style. The story is exciting from beginning to end. I always wanted to know what happens next and I can't wait to read more in this series.

This is only the first instalment of a longer saga, ending on something of a cliffhanger. The title is apt, as the main characters are difficult men with less than stellar lives. The writing is excellent, pulling me through the story and making me believe that, somehow, even Sid will be rehabilitated in my eyes as a plausible hero, despite his many flaws.

Action, Highly Entertaining, Fast Paced, Drama, Mystery! This one had it all and I loved every single word of it! This is the sort of story I'd love to see turned into a movie. And that is all thanks to Mr Shire's writing style. Phenomenal. This is the type of writing that keeps you turning the pages and wanting for it to never end. I was very pleased and am looking forward to reading the next season.

I am in awe of Brandon Shire's versatility in his writing. The Love of Wicked Men was tough and gritty, and drew me right into Sid's world.
