"With American Psycho vibes and characters that will haunt you, Wicked Little Words does not disappoint." - #1 New York Times Bestselling Author, Jennifer L. Armentrout
Edwin Allen Mercer 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. Miranda Cross 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...

Title: Wicked Little Words
Author: Stevie J. Cole & BT Urruela
Genre: Thriller, Suspense, Dark
Series or Standalone: Standalone
Hands down the most deliciously twisted story of 2016.
This is a hard review to write because this book has a lot of elements that can be given away if too much is said about it, but for me, this is a book that I didn’t see coming in the slightest. I had to forget everything that I thought I knew about this story and about thrillers in general, along with characters and how I assumed it would all play out because the fact of the matter is, I knew nothing. It kept me guessing the entire time.
There is mention by the characters of two writers coming together in almost perfect symmetry so that you can’t tell where one begins and the other one ends, and despite the way this story plays out, I do believe the same can be said about the two authors that penned this tale. I couldn’t tell you from one moment to the next who wrote what, only that the more I read, the more I wanted. So it’s my hope in the future that more from these two authors materializes.
Where a lot of my reads as of late have been heavily based in the romance genre (and sub genres), this one lacked it, but where I should have missed it or at least felt the absence of it, I didn’t. This story in its entirety had an old school thriller type feel to it and had there been any more romantic involvement than the wee bit that was shown, I don’t think the story would have gone off as well as it did.
Start to finish this was a story I couldn’t quite nail down, one I didn’t see coming, with an ending then even now, a day or so after I’ve finished reading it, my jaw is still on the floor about.
Phenomenal story told by two unique voices that blended together as one fantastically.
My thanks to the authors and all others involved in letting me read an advanced copy of this story. I hope to see more and read more from these authors in the future.

BT Urruela is a combat wounded amputee, Purple Heart recipient, contemporary author who has written both independent and traditionally published books. He is a RARE under 40 award recipient, Rockwood Summit High School and Rockwood School District Hall of Fame inductee, Co-founder and Brand Ambassador for VETSports, Ambassador for Tampa Sports Academy, People Magazine Tribute for Heroes winner, Cover Model, Motivational Speaker and Philanthropist. At an early age, he began writing short stories having been inspired by reading books authored by RL Stein. His maternal grandmother’s bookshelf was filled with literature that inspired his young mind and cultivated his vivid imagination. Upon graduation from high school, his desire to have a 20-year military career was cut drastically short by an improvised explosive device. Taking the life of his commander, and leaving the remaining four-team members badly wounded. After careful consideration and multiple surgeries, he along with the guidance of his doctors made the decision to amputate. It was the only surgery he ever left with a smile on his face, as if a weight had been lifted. He struggled for two more years through 4-5 hours of physical therapy a day, five days a week to get adapted to his new prosthetic. He medically retired from the Army with high hopes. His focus on restoring his physical shape being the most eminent battle caused him to neglect his psychological state. Meeting people was difficult and there were very few options for veterans to utilize that would stimulate friendship, and ultimately, allow communication barriers to be breached. After moving to Tampa, Florida, he co-founded the veteran community sports nonprofit, VETSports, with two other combat wounded veterans. It was their mission to change the way veterans transitioned back to civilian life through organized team sports, community involvement, and leadership opportunities. After being invited to attend a photoshoot with acclaimed photographer Michael Stokes, he flew to California in December of 2014, with incredible excitement. His photos were so widely publicized that he soon gained exposure to the literary world like he had always dreamed of. That opportunity launched him into his present writing career. He co-wrote the novel 'A Lover's Lament with author KL Grayson. The following year he released first solo novel, 'Into the Nothing' and will be releasing Wicked Little Words with author Stevie J. Cole. He is now writing full-time.
