What I got was a broody, enigmatic demigod with an electrifying touch and a mysterious past.

We were night and day in every way possible, not an ounce of anything in common, and yet, I wanted him in the worst way.

*SPOILER ALERT*

Recipe for disaster: smart, rich girl finds a hot, not-so-rich, mysterious man who tells you at the get-go he is not one for commitment- tell him you're 'adventurous', weasel your way into his life, 'fall in love' despite him telling you not to, find out he has 'issues'- get devastated then leave. With a secret in your belly. *EYE ROLL*

Omg!!! You guys!!! Pricked was absolutely amazing!!! I devoured it in one sitting and could not get enough of Madden Ransom, the cocky, surly tattoo artist and Brighton Taylor Karrington, the pampered Park Terrace princess who brought him down to his knees. I truly loved this story and all the banter and sexual tension. It was such an outstanding opposites attract novel I could not get enough of!!

nothing particularly wrong with this book i'm just not in the mood for a spoiled sweet princess meets wrong side of the tracks stud sort of story. the writing was a little lackluster and i didn't feel any attachment to either of the characters. and when they kissed i felt zero so i knew it probably wouldn't improve.

like i said, really not awful or anything just don't want to waste my time.

“You’re something, Madden. You know that? You’re really something. "
Madden is the kind of guy with an attitude of "what you see is what you get." He doesn't do things to please anyone.
“You’re the beautiful butterfly. I caught you in my net. I’ve taken you home. And I can’t promise you’re going to be the same if you spend the night with me.”
Brighton is a rich, privileged pre-med graduate who has been sheltered all her life. She wants to experience life and an act of "rebellion" leads her to meet

Meh.

Pricked was meh. I picked 3 stars.. but I'm feeling a huge 2.5 right now. In it, you will meet characters that are beyond frustrating to read about. I didn't care at all about anyone of anything that was happening. I felt nothing when reading this book. Well, other than the wine that I was constantly drinking to make it better.

Brighton was meh. More than meh because she was annoying and frustrating. Then there's Madden, and I lost interest so freaking quickly. These two were not for me. I di

I had just discovered Winter Renshaw a couple years ago when I signed up for the "Country Nights" blog tour. I was hooked on her writing after that book, and I planned to go back and read every one of her backlist books. Things got away from me, so when I did the "P.S. I Miss You" tour

“I'd love a good break. Something to snap me in two. Something that floods my veins with so much emotion, I become physically ill. I'd love to step out of this protective bubble where I never have to worry about a thing, never have to want. Never have to need or worry or fear or miss out on any of life's grand opportunities. That's not real life. I want heartbreak.

4.25 - 4.5 STARS

Loved it! I read this in one sitting - for some reason that happens A LOT when I read a Winter Renshaw book. I was hooked from the beginning. It sort of had a Mad Tatter vibe going on, and I looooooved The Mad Tatter. Madden and Brighton were fabulous characters, but Brighton really stood out in this one. She's nothing like I expected and surprised me at every turn. A great heroine!

This is I do believe my first book I’ve read by this author I do owe other books of hers. I loved this book. Might be my favorite read so far this year. Loved the characters and the story. It had twists and turns I never saw coming (which I love) most I know what’s coming. This one blew me away because it was so unexpected. Can’t wait to read more books by Winter!!

Madden is a tough, stoic tattoo artist with no ink of his own. Brighton lives in her parents' mansion on the country club side of town and every step of her life has been planned out. As an act of rebellion, Brighton gets a tattoo for her twenty-second birthday, entrusting Madden with choosing the tattoo design. No matter how much she tries, she can’t seem to engage him in conversation, and it’s obvious to both of them that their backgrounds are polar opposites and they have nothing in common. W ...more

Every single time Winter has me eating out of the palm of her hand. I've read quite a few stories by her and every single one was a 5 * read for me. What a skillful writer.

This was yet another new to me author so going in I had no expectations. I simply picked this book for a challenge read involving an artist; in this case a tattoo artist. I just finished this book and I am in awe at this authors story telling. This was amazing and I will say I had the wind knocked out of me a few times with twists that I NEVER saw coming. They were definitely OMG moments! The start of my reading year for 2019 has been awesome and it m

I stumbled across this one on Amazon, and loved the blurb so decided to give it a try! I am so glad I did because I really enjoyed it. Winter Renshaws writing flows beautifully and I loved Brighton and Madden. There was the perfect amount of heat and drama, and it all came together brilliantly.

Este libro (a diferencia de casi todos los libros de Winter Renshaw) NO me atrapó desde la primera frase, pero para el final del segundo capitulo sin duda estaba TOTALMENTE enamorada de los personajes e inmersa en el trama sin poder parar de leer.
Es que no solo se trata de una historia de amor (fresca y tierna) sino que es una hermosa historia sobre pelear por los sueños y la libertad, proteger lo que más se ama, ir por tus sueños y mantener la esperanza.

I wasn’t sure at first whether I was going to fully connect with this story, it started out fairly slow, a first meet between our couple, then it drifted into describing the characters’ daily routines, scene setting really. But as I read on, I found that I was becoming increasingly invested in the lives of these characters and liking them very much. Soon, I couldn’t put it down.

I absolutely loved Brighton. She’s multi layered and a bit of a contradiction. A very strong willed, take no nonsense f

3 "And just like that, the butterfly stayed." Stars

After seeing so much buzz on this book I decided to try it from Kindle Unlimited. And Pricked was charming for what it was: your typical unhappy, wealthy, young adult with a kind heart who wants more out of life who meets the bristly, aloof boy with the equally big heart from the seemingly wrong side of the tracks. Subtle chemistry ensues under the guise of a fake relationship, feelings get tangled, surprises reveal themselves ... you know the r

Wow what an emotional journey of a book that was.
It will definitely stay with me for a long time and it gave me a plethora of emotions that had me hooked throughout.
I'm going to say Pricked is my new favourite book by Winter Renshaw.
This is raw,gritty and interwoven and kept me guessing right up to the last revelation.
I love this book so much and totally fell for Madden and Brighton's story.
These two came from totally different backgrounds yet slotted tog

Pricked by Winter Renshaw a five-star read you would want to adore. Madden Ransom just makes me so desperate to go run to my local tattoo shop and get some more ink, he is an enigma wrapped in a day dream. This was such a compelling read, you will be reading each page and going back and forth as you worry you will miss something. There is a compelling story and each time a new detail is revealed you will just get more drawn into the story. Brighton is a great character and she really has her own ...more

Ugh. I wanted to like this because the characters were fun to read but that’s about all that’s good here.
It’s filled with a lot of melodrama, cliches, and characters made out of cardboard.

What irritates me most is Brighton’s lack of appreciation for her life. Okay yes I get it her parents are controlling helicopters but just once I’d like a spoiled rich girl to see how good she has it. As someone who grew up worrying about bills being paid and where my next meal was coming from I can’t relate

I loved the premise of Pricked, the intrigue, the secrets, the rich girl/poor boy aesthetic. Pricked was different than I expected. I was sure it was going to be a bad boy alpha romance, but it was so much more than that. Madden was better than I could have anticipated. He was fascinating – and not because he was a reformed bad boy – in a way that tugged at my heart and made me feel a kinship with him. Once I learned his secrets, I understood a good portion of the reason why.

4 Stars

Pricked wasn’t anything what I expected. I definitely didn’t expect it to punch me with all the feelings. It’s more than what one would think. It’s a story of two very different people from the opposite sides of town. But even with all their differences, they’re more alike than they think.

Brighton is bright eyed and innocent. Wanting to pull away from the hold her parents have on her. She wants to start living her life the way she wants

Madden and Brighton are complete opposites. He is from the wrong side of the tracks and owns. a tattoo shop. She is a girl who lives in a mansion and is scheduled to start med school in the fall. From the outside looking in, you would think Brighton had a perfect life. In the beginning I was thinking “poor little rich girl”. Once you look beyond the surface her life is anything but ideal. Her life is micromanaged by her parents. She needs a taste is freedom and rebellion. She meets Madden at the ...more

I heard such great things about this book and maybe that's why it fell a little flat for me. It was overrated in my opinion. I actually liked both of the characters but from my perspective there just wasn't much to the storyline. It was totally predictable and there just wasn't much there. Having said that, I really enjoyed Dark Promises by Winter Renshaw and the writing was great as usual, just not the story for me. I will definitely read more books by her in the future!
☆☆Hannah☆☆
This ended up being better than I thought. Brighton comes from a rich family and of course Madden does not. To Brighton that doesn't matter but to her parents it does. Those people were nuts and after what we find out about her dad it really didn't surprise me. Even though this was really your typical book I still really enjoyed it.
