Wicked as They Come – Blud #1 – Delilah S. Dawson

Yet another book that I did not finish. To tell you the truth I only bought this book because of a hilarious review on Goodreads which contradicted my first thoughts when I first saw the cover and read the blurb. The reviewer said not to hold the cheesy cover against the book and that the book was not cheesy at all but everything she said was wrong. Sometimes, you can judge a book by its cover.

The book started out okay even though the female lead is the gag-me too good to be real type of woman who is a hospice nurse who in her spare time takes care of her ailing grandmother. She finds a locket at an estate sale and magically finds herself in another world. That is where the story starts to suck big fanged bunnies…or little fanged bunnies like in the tale. She meets a fanged man wearing a top hat, a cross between Willy Wonka and Frank N Furter. He was so outrageous and fantastical that I couldn’t get into him at all.

The story reminded me of Alice in Wonderland which is one of my least favorite stories of all time.

I tried to force myself to read it because I paid good money for it but had to give up after a quarter of the book. It just was too fantastical and cheesy for me.
