Blog Tour & 3.5 Star Review of Wicked Ride by Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Ride Blog Tour BannerWicked Ride (The Wicked Horse Series Book #4)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: June 28, 2016

Synopsis:
I think this woman may be the death of me. A dire prediction, but probably true.
Probably true because she’s not mine to have and I’ll probably take her, even at the risk to my own safety. So many men slobbering to get a taste of her and only one, sweet, virginal girl to go around.
That’s right.
She’s a virgin.
Looking like a porcelain china doll that would break if not handled carefully. But I also know she’s stronger than she looks.
She’s a contradiction.
She’s most likely my downfall.
Like I said, she’ll probably be the death of me, but it’s a risk I’m willing to take.

**Warning: this book has sex in it. Lots of sex. Dirty sex. The Wicked Horse Series is a bit different than what Sawyer Bennett normally writes. While you’ll still enjoy fabulous characters, a suspenseful story, some witty banter and an epic romance, there’s just… a lot of sex. You’ve been warned.

My Review:

Wicked Ride is the fourth book in The Wicked Horse series.  This is Logan’s story.  It’s funny.  Logan’s story is the story I didn’t know I wanted.  Woolf, Cain, even Rand, I felt a connection to those characters, but Logan was like this aloof character who just showed up when someone needed a Fantasy Maker.  I know we are all highly anticipating Bridger’s story, but after reading Logan’s story, I’m glad Sawyer Bennett gave each of the players their own story before closing the loop with Bridger’s book.

That being said, it was hard to connect with Logan.  There was little to no back story on him in the previous three books.  All I really knew about Logan was that he liked to have kinky sex.  We got a teeny, tiny bit of insight in Wicked Need when Rand asked him to help him out with Cat, but other than that, he just sort of popped up when he was needed.  So, for him to have an entire back story with no real introduction was a little hard for me to get into.

However, Logan’s story is pretty heavy.  Not the plot of the book, but Logan’s backstory itself.  I won’t spoil, of course, but let’s just stay, it’s pretty deep.

The heroine in the story is Auralie.  She is timid and under the control of a man, who is auctioning off her virginity to a member of the club.  She has a pretty crazy backstory herself.  Honestly, I liked her more than Cat, but not more than Callie and Sloane.  Until the end, she was kind of a doormat (for a good reason). When she and Logan finally give into their desires for one another, things get pretty steamy and creative.  Once she finally takes control, you kind of have to love her.

I didn’t like the plot of this book.  It was so far out in left field, I had a hard time swallowing what I was being given.  I had come to expect a different sort of steam with this series of books and there was almost none of that, so I was a bit disappointed.  That’s not to say it wasn’t hot, it just wasn’t up to the level of the other books.

The connection between Logan and Auralie was most definitely insta-love.  In fact, they spend almost four whole chapters having internal conversations with only looks.  Meh.  I get it, but I didn’t like it.

If not for Logan’s backstory (which we don’t get until the very end) and Bridger (because that guy can get anything done.  Seriously!), I’m not sure I would have liked this one.  It is Sawyer Bennett, though, and her name and writing kept me going to the end.

Rating:  3.5/5 stars
