Publisher's Summary

Once Upon A Time,

there was a wicked girl.

She lost everything that mattered,

causing darkness to unfurl.

Impulsive and intelligent,

she helped her family name grow strong.

But then one day a man without a heart came along.

An undercover agent, meant to spy and bring back tips.

Following down her hidden path of faded yellow bricks.

She hated him, he wanted her;

she was too good to be true.

But a woman can be great …

and terrible too.

Wretched is a dark, contemporary romance (not fantasy or a retelling) and the third complete standalone in The Never After Series: a collection of fractured fairy tales inspired by our favorite villains. It features mature themes and content that may not be suitable for all listeners. Listener discretion is advised.

Hooked wasn’t as good as this!

Everyone kept raving on about hooked but this book had me on the edge of my seat. The 🔫 scene reminded me of hunting Adeline. Although the start of the book was a bit of a drag I was loving the ending

Amazing story

I loved reading this and listening to it added so much more! The performance was great and I feel like I got so much more from the audio book.

Chemistry through the roof

Like all the never after books i practically breathed through this entire series and it's been so enjoyable. Wretched is one of the best, the story was well thought through and the characters had so much tension. If you like enemies to lovers this one is for u.

Every last wretched piece

This felt like it was trying too hard. It lacked personality.
A family torn apart from the inside. Sisters who genuinely hate each other, fighting for the attention of a no good father.
Liked the fact that a female was the villain in this story and was in charge of herself. Felt the ending could of had a bit more but otherwise a good read

Great story, mostly enjoyable performance

I quite enjoyed listening to Wretched, particularly the male performer, however the female was a little underwhelming, I would have much preferred the male performer do the whole read. Even the female parts he did better than her.
And also, there is no T in “else,” the mispronunciation “eltse” drove me up the wall.
