So I brazenly and totally unashamedly made it known to Sasha back when I read Trouble just how much I wanted to read Karl’s book. Like, as in early and stuff. She took pity on me and sent me Wicked and I read half of it, got slammed and couldn’t finish until very recently so I wanted to get a revew up because hello, it’s releasing soon and you should all run out and pre-order this book because, yet again, Sasha kicks ass and hits it out of the park (whoo, two cliched phrases for the price of one, I rule)
In Karl and Lara Sasha flips the trope around a bit. At first it appears it’s a matter of two people very much alike attracting, but really, it’s Lara who’s the one who does the running and Karl who realizes he wants something permanent with this woman.
Of course there’s hot sex, this is Sasha after all. There’s one scene which made me distinctly pissed off, but upon further reflection, it worked for who this couple is. For who Lara is.
We get into not just Lara’s head, but really into Karl’s head. He’s been a mystery for a while so I enjoyed this being as much his story as it was Lara’s. I like to get the hero’s POV in a romance and White does it well here.
One of the things I like best about Sasha White’s writing is her voice is very unique and young. Her books are not carbon copies of anything else and I always feel, as I read, that she’s very true to the story inside her.
Wicked releases January 2 and it’s another Sasha White book I can heartily recommend – especially to anyone looking for an atypical romance with some great emotion and really well written sex scenes.
