Rand Bishop’s dreams of Olympic gold were shattered years ago but he’s left that all behind, settling into a new career and lifestyle that would make any man jealous. While he may not be competitively racing down the ski slopes anymore, he’s just as happy getting his rocks off as a Fantasy Maker for The Silo.
He’s good at what he does.
But while life couldn’t be better for Rand, it seems to be falling apart for Catherine Lyons Vaughn, the dark haired, brown-eyed beauty that has captivated an entire sex club.
Having spent years degrading herself on her husband’s whim and now left destitute after his death, Catherine has hit rock bottom. With nothing but her body to peddle, Catherine is merely trying to figure out how to survive in a harsh, cruel world. Lucky for her, Rand has taken her under his tattooed wing, and he’s determined to give her a safe life where she can be the woman she was always meant to be.
Now all Catherine has to do is believe she deserves the chance.
Rating: 3.5 stars
Wicked Need is book 3 in The Wicked Horse Series and I want to say I liked it as much as the first two, but, unfortunately, I didn’t. It isn’t that the book isn’t good. It’s what I have come to expect from Sawyer Bennett, who ranks up there on my list of favorite authors. The problem was it was a bit bland compares to the previous two books.
Wicked Need is Rand’s story. Well, his and Catherine’s. Both characters have appeared in the previous two books. I liked that we got to know Catherine, or now Cat, better. She’s actually a pretty great character. Unfortunately, Rand didn’t do it for me. I get that he is different from the guys in the other books, but I never felt like I got enough of him to really connect with his character. Honestly, this should have been subtitled Catherine’s Story, not Rand’s Story.
Anyway, the writing is good, not Bennet’s best, but still good. The plot was interesting, the story was predictable but good. I guess I was just wishing for a little more.
Still worth a read, though.
