Review: Wicked Little Words by Stevie J. Cole and B.T. Urruela

Publication Date: 10/31/2016

I want them all to read my words. And they do. Every last blood-stained sentence, they've read and praised me for. They love the gore and violence, the realness. And I get a sense of power with it all because I know a secret: the victims in my books—they’re real and have all died on my table. And maybe that’s why the last book had such awful reviews. Murder is, after all, a dirty little thing. Some can stomach it. Others can’t. My answer to those reviews: find a woman to co-author with. To be the next pathetic character in my book. Pity she’s so pretty.

All I’ve ever wanted was to be successful as a writer so when I was offered the opportunity to co-author a book with my idol, EA Mercer, I jumped at the chance. He’s beautiful and a literary genius, but something about him makes my stomach knot. And maybe it’s my overactive imagination making my hairs stand on end when he walks up behind me.

After all, these wicked little words we’re typing are only fiction.

They’re only fiction...

They aren’t enough wicked little words to describe this brilliant psychological thriller.  Cole and Urruela’s devious partnership has delivered a nail-biting story filled with twists and turns that will leave your head spinning.  Wicked Little Words is a powerhouse of creative plotting and will leave any reader whose loves a twisted story with an OMG look plastered on their face. 

I think the single most thing that I loved about this story is the fact that one of the lead characters is an author who is known for their dark and twisted novels.  That fact alone sucked me into this story and even at times, made me think about how much research an author has to put into their stories.  Could this really happen? While most would say no, I could see the potential of an author blurring the lines between fantasy and reality. 

The only words I could use to describe this book would be holy f-ing sh*t.  Just wow.  It takes one hell of a book to leave this reviewer speechless. Now, when do we get another one?
