Wretched (Never After Series)
About this deal
It would also be in 2021 that McIntire would publish her next romance series titled ‘Never After,’ beginning with the novel ‘Hooked.’ This she would then follow up with ‘Scarred’ in 2022, whilst also writing alongside fellow author Sav R Miller in 2021 too. Primarily interested in love and romance, this something that she clearly excels at, and will continue to do so for many years to come. All across the USA, people are showing up dead. The deaths don't appear to be connected in any way until one particular death occurs and gets the Secretary of Defense's attention. He arranges for a task force to investigate. Wretched is dark contemporary romance novel written by Emily McIntire, published in 2022, based on L. Frank Baum's fairytale The Wizard of Oz.
Hair-Trigger Temper: Justified. Eveline has a short temper and little impulse control, which requires her to count down numbers in her mind just to calm down. Just remember that whenever things feel bleak, all situations are temporary. It’s not your circumstance that determines your worth, it’s how you rise from the ashes after everything burns.”Yeah, starting to burn? That’s hydrofluoric acid for you. Do you want to know what it’s doing as it melts through your skin? It has fluoride ions that migrate through the body, destroying tissue until it lodges in your bones.”
But if I’m her calm, then she is my chaos, and if I can’t live with her forever, then I don’t want to live at all.”
Publication Order of Never After Books
This is a book that is one of my most anticipated reads of the year and after reading the first two books of the series, I really loved what the author created with this series. There was a TON of hype surrounding this book, especially on bookstagram. It is a more unique retelling, this is where we have a “Wizard of Oz” theme to it, it’s not a straight-up retelling, but I was really intrigued by how this author was writing this series here. I really wanted to see more of what this author would deliver in this story. Now I won’t lie in that I was nervous as the author had written a heroine that is the villain (kinda). But honestly, I felt like its very rare for a anti-heroine to work for me, but i did like it for the most part even though it didn’t quite work as much as I had hoped for. I do think that this book is a bit overhyped, in my opinion,. While I liked it overall, the first book “Hooked” still wins for me. In Love with the Mark: Despite working against the Westerlys in secret, Nicholas inadvertently falls in love with Eveline (who is the supplier of the Flying Monkey), which she slowly reciprocates.
