Review – Wicked Knight (Wicked Horse Vegas #5) by Sawyer Bennett

Wicked Knight (Wicked Horse Vegas, #5)Wicked Knight by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

3.5 Stars

A broody billionaire and a down on her luck single mom strike an illicit deal that leads to more than either one could imagine.

I think I expected more from this book. Before you go and “boo” me, here’s the thing… Bennett’s Wicked Horse Vegas and it’s predecessor, the Wicked Horse series, are billed as erotic romance and they are, for the most part. They are super steamy, sexy books with good plots and characters. Wicked Knight definitely drops down the scorcher scale to more steamy and less en fuego. Don’t get me wrong, there is talk of threesomes and machines and sex that certainly doesn’t fall into vanilla, but that’s the thing, it is mostly talk or in this case implied. Save for a brief scene in the Wicked Horse early on in the book, the rest of the sex is essentially implied. Some of you may like that. I often do. However, in a series and it’s spin-off where I have come to expect that, it was a bit of a let down.

The story itself was good. Asher Knight is a brooding billionaire who spends his night at the sex club instead of forming real relationships. Hannah Madigan is a single mom who is working three jobs to save money to get custody of her child back from her skeevy ex-husband. Asher offers Hannah a deal she can’t refuse. (I’ll let you read it to find out, but I’m guessing it won’t be that hard for you to figure out.) Things begin as all business, but as in any good romance, things begin to change. I was left a bit unsatisfied. There was no real climax in the story. Sure, Asher made an assumption and screwed things up, but it wasn’t a heart-breaking, left me gasping climax. The ending was good and the epilogue was satisfying as it tied up loose ends and Asher and Hannah got their HEA.

Let’s just get down to brass tacks, shall we? My real issue with this series, this book in particular, is the clinical nature of Bennett’s writing. I get it. Sawyer Bennett was a lawyer. She is probably super smart and extremely well-spoken. That is all fine and dandy, but I need the character’s voice to match the character’s background. Asher was written as cold, bitter, rich and well-educated. It fit him; although, he too was almost too clinical. Hannah came from a poor family in South Carolina and yet she was written with a richer vocabulary than I have and I have three degrees. The clinical nature of the writing took away from the steaminess and emotion that was meant to be there. This kind of writing fits some of her other series, it just doesn’t fit here.

All in all, I enjoyed the book and the characters, but I was left wanting more where emotions and sex were concerned.

Hot New Release ~ 4 Stars for Wicked Choice by Sawyer Bennett

 

Wicked Choice (Wicked Horse Vegas, Book #4)
Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: January 2, 2018

 

Synopsis:

Rachel Hart and Bodie Wright are nothing more than teammates. As mercenaries for hire with the elite Jameson Group, they have each other’s backs in the most dangerous of circumstances. But after a mission gone deadly wrong, Rachel does something she’s never done before. She crosses the professional line and takes comfort in Bodie’s arms.

One night of passion turns their lives upside down with a pregnancy neither of them expected, and one that Rachel was too terrified to ever want. Bodie, however, is a family man through and through, and he’s determined to raise their child alone if necessary.

The only common thread Rachel and Bodie have is their membership at The Wicked Horse, a sex club that lets them both fulfill their dirtiest fantasies with each other. As they become more intimately entwined, the strong, steady man with a heart of gold makes Rachel question everything she ever thought she knew about herself. Their wicked nights together make them so much more than teammates and Rachel is about to discover the choices she thought were the most difficult are actually the easiest ones to make.

My

4 Stars!

Wicked Choice veers a bit away from the usual Wicked Horse Vegas (and it’s predecessor, The Wicked Horse) series, but don’t worry, you still get a steamy, hot couple who will set the pages on fire and have you rooting for them.

Rachel and Bodie aren’t your typical couple. In fact, they aren’t a couple at all. They had a one night stand and went their separate way, except they work together. However, now they are drawn together to by a set of circumstances neither of them saw coming. Rachel wants nothing to do with those circumstance, but Bodie does. This whole book is an interesting dichotomy that worked quite well. It is also a set up for something more (read the author’s note and you will understand).

It took me a bit to really like Rachel, but she does grow on you. Bodie, on the other hand, is the perfect Sawyer Bennet alpha male with a big old heart. He’s complicated. She’s complicated. Their story is complicated. It all meshes together for an entertaining read!

Sawyer Bennett
Release Date: October 27, 2017

The best of friends.
Two men. One woman.

As Dane’s envy blooms, he wonders if he made the right decision when he agreed to show Avril his wicked world.

What happens when the lines of friendship are blurred and boundaries are crossed? Will their relationships survive or will jealousy tear them all apart?

My Review

4 Stars!

Welcome back to the Wicked Horse Vegas! This one is three times the erotic fun!

Avril, Dane and Andrew have been best friends for seventeen years, since their freshman year in college. Over the years, their friendship grew stronger and they all came to work together at Dane’s successful Biotech company. It has always been platonic between them, until a visit to the Wicked Horse changes everything.

So, I was a little torn on this one. I gave it four stars because the writing is great, the characters have potential (I’ll get to that in a minute), the plot was good and this by far went the farthest in terms of the erotic nature of the story. (There is this scene when the three of them are in the hotel in Paris and it was 5 alarm smoking hot, folks!!) I wanted to give it a full five stars, but I held back and here is why…

I have no doubt that writing a threesome relationship was not easy. The three of them being best friends and then venturing into a sexual relationship but trying to keep feelings out of it could not have been easy to write. Unfortunately, I felt like the book was missing that spark of feels I normally find in her books. At times the story felt clinical and a bit cold. Andrew was the saving grace of the book, in my opinion. He was the feels and the encouragement, despite his ability to compartmentalize their sexual relationship. Each of the characters has a role and a purpose in the book and in their friendship/relationship – Dane, the cold, driven businessman; Avril, the strong female; Andrew, the laid back, emotional one – but none of them seem to be allowed to feel freely. Now, don’t get me wrong. Eventually, things work themselves out and things progress along in the right direction. Still, though, even when two of the characters begin to explore their feelings, I just couldn’t find myself believing them. However, over all, the story was great. Bennett seemed to put a realism to the threesomes decision to explore their sexual nature as a threesome without affecting the friendship and I appreciated that. These hang-ups about the lack of feels are just my hang-ups and others may see the book differently. I am a fan of grand gestures and big declarations of love in my book, epic romances, if you will, and this was not particularly epic, but it was good and it will appeal to many.

Hop on board for an erotic ride at the Wicked Horse Vegas with Wicked Envy!

Review Blitz: 4 Stars for Wicked Wish (Wicked Horse Vegas #2) by Sawyer Bennett!

 

Jorinda Pearce thought she did everything right – graduated from college, married her long-time sweetheart, established a career. But what does she have to show for it now? A degree she doesn’t use, a job she hates, and an ex-husband that broke her heart.

Looking for a long overdue adventure, Jorie takes a walk on the wild side and attends a masquerade event at The Wicked Horse Vegas. It’s exactly the escape she’s looking for, and even better, she can explore anonymously. Drawn to the man masked in black leather with the body of a god, Jorie finds the greatest pleasures of her life at the hands of a stranger.

Walsh Brooks is the most sought after man in The Wicked Horse. Sex is nothing but a game to him and he’s the type that will always leave at the end of the night without looking back. Unfortunately for Walsh, there’s no way he can walk away from the mysterious green-eyed beauty behind the mask of sapphire feathers, because he knows exactly who she is.

Jorie is his best friend’s little sister and there’s not another woman in the world that’s more off limits.

My Review:

4 Stars!

Dive into the next book in the Wicked Horse Vegas series! Jorie and Walsh steam up the pages in the friends to lovers/best friend’s little sister erotic romance.

Jorie is reeling from the apparent end of her marriage of eight years after her husband kicked her out for being bad in bed. She heads back to her hometown and moves in with her best friend. Elena takes Jorie to The Wicked Horse to help her realize that she wasn’t the problem and the husband is an idiot. Jorie ends up with a mysterious man and gets the night of her life, until… that man reveals himself to be her brother’s best friend and her pseudo-older brother, Walsh. Walsh and Jorie have a history and Walsh has always been important to her. That one night sparks something in Jorie.

Walsh is as alpha as they come. He is also fiercely protective of his best friend, Micah, and Micah’s little sister, Jorie. So, when he discovers the woman he just had the best sex of his life with is Jorie… warning bells go off. He tries to deny himself and Jorie, but Jorie is persistent. Despite knowing it is a bad idea, he continues to see Jorie as more than friends.

Let me tell you, this book scorches! Sawyer Bennett does not hold back on the smexy times! Her ability to mix erotic writing with sweet, sexy romance is amazing! Plus, beneath all that steam is a really beautiful, emotional love story that will have you flipping pages long into the night.

I also want to mention the foreward. I don’t know how many people actually read the forwards and/or author notes, but I hope you read this one. I love how thoughtful and honest Sawyer Bennett is and this foreward was honest and important.

Squaring my shoulders, I march into The Royale and head straight for the concierge desk. I haven’t been in this casino before. Hell, I haven’t been in hardly any of them. Sure, I’d only grown up about forty-five minutes away, but gambling and all-you-can-eat buffets held no interest to me.

From Micah bragging about his best friend over the years, I knew Walsh orchestrated the purchase of the land, then pulled together financing with two other partners to build this casino. It’s one of the most popular on the strip, boasting five-star dining, old-world elegance, and superior customer service. Again, all this from Micah, but honestly… I’m so proud of Walsh, too. We may have lost touch over the years, but I’ll never forget all the ways in which he acted as a big brother to me.

Ick.

Okay… that’s gross. Thinking of Walsh like a brother.

I scrub my mind clean of that thought and demand myself never to do that again.

Rather, I’ll never forget all the ways in which Walsh provided me friendship and support in my formative years.

Yes… much better.

“Can I help you?” a man behind the concierge desk asks with a genuine and friendly smile. Not snooty as I would expect in a fancy hotel, and I guess that goes to the superior customer service The Royale strives for.

“Yes… hi,” I say as I nervously tuck my hair behind my ears on both sides. “I need to see Mr. Brooks. How do I go about getting access to his apartment?”

Micah told me some time ago that Walsh lives here.

The concierge never loses his friendly smile, but a single eyebrow arches high at my temerity.

“Oh, gosh,” I stammer. “That came out stalkerish. Mr. Brooks… I mean, Walsh… and I are longtime friends. He used to babysit me.”

“Your name?” the man asks as he pulls up something on his computer.

“Jorie Pearce.”

After a moment of scanning, he looks up at me. “Your name isn’t on the approved list.”

“Well, he’s not exactly expecting me.”

“I’m sorry, Miss Pearce,” he says with true regret in his voice. “But our policy is strict. No one gets up to the private penthouse without their name on the list.”

I lean on the desk with one elbow and lower my voice. “Just out of curiosity… are there any women on that list?”

The eyebrow shoots up again.

“No, wait,” I say hastily as I hold my palms toward him in a silent plea to not process my last request either mentally or on the computer. “That’s totally stalkerish, and I didn’t mean that.”

“Miss Pearce,” the concierge says, now with a hint of annoyance. “Perhaps you’d like to leave a message? I can get it up to Mr. Brooks today and he can call you.”

“No, I need to see him now,” I tell him firmly. “And I swear it’s not to cook a rabbit in a pot on his stove. Can you please just call up to his apartment?”

“That’s not our policy—”

“Look,” I snap as I lean across the desk slightly. “I’m a lifelong friend of Walsh’s. My brother is his best friend. We lost touch for a few years, but we ran into each other last night. I really need to talk to him about something that happened last night, and I’m not leaving this hotel until you call up to his apartment.”

The eyebrow doesn’t arch but it does draw inward to meet its match on the other side as he considers what I just said.

“I swear to you,” and here I pause to look at his name tag, “Bentley. Please just call him. He won’t be mad.”

With a sigh, he relents and picks up the phone receiver, punching in a five-digit number. After a pause, he says, “Mr. Brooks… I’m very sorry to disturb you, sir, but there’s a Miss Jorie Pearce here to see you. She says she’s a longtime friend.”

I watch as Bentley listens, but I can’t gauge what’s being said as his face remains blank. Finally, he says, “Very good, sir.”

I take this to mean I’ll be getting an escort to the penthouse suite, but Bentley replaces the receiver and says, “I’m sorry, Miss Pearce. But Mr. Walsh told me to tell you he’s busy and can’t receive you right now.”

My eyes narrow at Bentley. “I don’t believe you. Call back and let me talk to him.”

“I assure you, I just talked to him and that’s what he said.”

“Call him back,” I order as I point to the phone.

“I can’t,” he says almost with a wail. “If I do, he’ll fire me.”

Okay, that hits home. I don’t want to get anyone in trouble, so I say, “Fine. Give me just a moment.”

I take a few steps away from the concierge desk and pull my iPhone out. I shoot off a quick text to Micah. What’s Walsh’s phone number?

I wait a few moments, but I know Micah is awake in San Francisco at this hour. His phone is always on, and he never ignores a text from me.

He responds with the number before I can even start to tap my foot with impatience, adding on, Why?

I hate the lie, but I write back, Came to Vegas for the day. Thought I’d see if he could meet up for lunch. Haven’t seen him in years.

Cool, he writes back. Tell him I said, “what’s up, douche?”

I roll my eyes as I text back, Real mature. Love ya. Later.

After I save the number to my contacts, I open a new text to Walsh. Let me up to see you or I’m going straight back to The Wicked Horse to satisfy some further curiosities I have.

I hit send and then walk back to the concierge desk. I merely lean one elbow on it and watch Bentley with a silent smile. The phone rings about ten seconds after that.

Bentley’s eyes fly to mine as he listens, and then says, “Yes, sir. Right away.”

When he replaces the receiver, he says, “I’m to show you to the penthouse elevator.”

“Thank you, Bentley,” I say brightly.

“Want another drink?” I ask Micah as he lounges on my couch and takes the final swallow of his scotch. He flew in about an hour ago, and we’re waiting for Jorie to arrive to go out to dinner tonight. My nerves are on edge. I definitely want another drink.

“Nah, man,” Micah says as he pushes up from the couch and moves to take his glass back into the kitchen that opens straight from the living room. “Tonight’s not about getting drunk. It’s about hanging out with my two favorite people in the world.”

I smile at him and nod, my stomach clenched.

“But just so you know,” he says with a laugh. “Jorie’s my first favorite, you’re my second.”

“As it should be,” I reply, and hope that sounds casual enough.

Micah rinses his glass out and sets it on the counter. As he walks back into the living room, he says, “And besides… I figure tomorrow night, you and I are going to hit the town, right?”

“You know it,” I say as I push up from the chair, head straight to the wet bar, and replenish my vodka. There is not enough alcohol in the world to get me through this weekend. I take a healthy slug as soon as I cap the bottle.

“Dying to go to The Wicked Horse,” Micah says with excitement in his voice. “Want to meet Jerico, too. He and I have been emailing about testing out some more of my designs in his club. Plus, you and me, dude… we haven’t had a woman together in a long time. Your stories about the stocks… we’ve got to hit that, man.”

My shoulders tighten and my gut rolls with nausea. How in the fuck I am going to weasel out of this is beyond me, but I’ve got to figure something out. I don’t want another fucking woman other than Jorie.

“Walsh?” Micah says in question, and I turn to look at him. “We good with going there tomorrow night?”

“Damn straight we are,” I say with a smile. “A night of debauchery for the both of us.”

Fuck, fuck, fuck.

Just then, the elevator doors give a slight hiss as they open, and Jorie is standing there. She looks fucking amazing, wearing a dress done in large black-and-white zebra stripes that’s loosely belted around her waist and comes down to her knees. She’s got on a pair of sexy-as-shit taupe heels to go with it and my mouth waters as I take in what they do to her legs. Hair in that sleek, angled bob that hangs halfway in between her jaw and shoulders, and that thick crop of bangs straight across her eyebrows make her green eyes brighter than ever.

I swallow hard and try to appear casual.

Her eyes go immediately to Micah, and she gives a squeal of excitement. He rushes to her, picks her up, and swings her around. The skirt of her dresses rises a bit in the back, and I look away guiltily.

“God, I missed you, squirt,” Micah says with a choked voice. My guilt intensifies over the naked display of love and affection he has for his sister.

Jorie’s voice quavers with equal love. “I missed you, too.”

She hugs him hard and looks over his shoulder at me. Her eyes are wary and nervous.

When Micah releases her, I step up and casually say, “Got a hug for me?”

It’s a shameless move to touch her, but not something that would raise Micah’s eyebrows. I’ve hugged Jorie a million times over our lives together growing up.

“It’s good to see you again,” she says to me as she walks into a very brotherly hug. I make the mistake of inhaling her scent, and I’m hit with a jolt of lust for her.

After we quickly release each other, she steps back and surveys my apartment as if it’s her first time. She told Micah we met for breakfast one day, but he sure as shit doesn’t know I’ve fucked her on almost every piece of furniture in this apartment. He’ll never know she went to her knees right where we’re standing in front of the elevator and swallowed every drop of cum I gave her.

Fuck, fuck, fuck.

I have an overwhelming urge to fake a stomachache, a migraine, a goddamn stroke for all I care at this moment, and beg off from this entire weekend.

Instead, I put a smile on my face and tell them, “Come on. We’ve got prime seats in Moulineaux tonight. I’ve not eaten there yet, but heard it’s amazing.”

Jorie smiles back at me before turning to hook her arm through Micah’s. She leans over and puts her head on his arm as she’s too short to reach his shoulder. They both stroll into the elevator.

This night can’t get over with fast enough for me.

Title: The Unrequited
Author: Saffron A. Kent
Genre: Contemporary/Erotic Romance
Release Date: July 13, 2017


Blurb
Layla Robinson is not crazy. She is suffering from
unrequited love. But it’s time to move on. No more stalking, no more obsessive
calling.
What she needs is a distraction. The blue-eyed guy she keeps
seeing around campus could be a great one—only he is the new poetry
professor—the married poetry professor.
Thomas Abrams is a stereotypical artist—rude, arrogant, and
broody—but his glares and taunts don’t scare Layla. She might be bad at poetry,
but she is good at reading between the lines. Beneath his prickly façade,
Thomas is lonely, and Layla wants to know why. Obsessively.
Sometimes you do get what you want. Sometimes you end up in
the storage room of a bar with your professor and you kiss him. Sometimes he
kisses you back like the world is ending and he will never get to kiss you
again. He kisses you until you forget the years of unrequited love; you forget
all the rules, and you dare to reach for something that is not yours.
NOTE: Please be aware that this book deals with sensitive
topics like cheating and death. 18+ Only.

Excerpt
I’m hit by
a storm of desire to kiss him better. It’s a tornado, an avalanche in my body,
and in one breathless moment, I decide to go for it. It’s okay. I can take the
blame for it later.
I break the
rules and reach up and kiss him. A feathery peck on his plump lips, it’s a kiss
of solidarity, a kiss that intends to tell him I understand—but one isn’t
enough. It only manages to ratchet up my lust. So I give him another, this time
on the corner of his mouth, and then another one on his jaw.
It’s not enough, these small, barely-there
touches. I want more, but I won’t take it. I’ll be good; I’ll only give.
Abruptly,
he fists my curls and stops me. I look at him fearfully, ready to apologize—not
for the kiss, but for being the kisser. His gaze reflects passion, stark,
raving need, and I shiver, despite wearing layers and sweating with his heat.
“Are you
trying to kiss me, Layla?” he rasps, flexing his fingers on my makeshift
ponytail.
He couldn’t
tell? Blush rises to the surface and I know I’m glowing like a neon sign.
Swallowing, I nod. “Yes.”
He inches
closer to me, still not touching—as impossible as that is—but infinitely
closer. “You want to kiss me, Miss Robinson, you do it right.”
Oh God,
does he have to call me that? Now, here? My spine arches on its own and my
heavy tits graze the contours of his shuddering chest.
“H-How?” I
ask innocently, belying the daring action of my body. His stern, professor-y
voice is doing things to me, making me wild, uncontrolled.
For a
second, he’s silent, just watching. I’m afraid he’ll back out from whatever
this is, whatever insanity we’re about to commit—but then I sense the shift in
the liquor-laced air as he opens his mouth and growls, “Like this.”

 

Author Bio
Writer of bad romances. Coffee Addict. White Russian
Drinker. Imaginary Ballet Dancer and poetess. Aspiring Lana Del Ray of the book
world.
I’m a big believer in love (obviously). I believe in happily ever after, the
butterflies and the tingling. But I also believe in edgy, rough and gutsy kind
of love. I believe in pushing the boundaries, darker (sometimes morally
ambiguous) emotions and imperfections.

The kind of love I write about is flawed just like my characters. And I hope by
the end of it, you’ll come to root for them just as much as me. Because love,
no matter where it comes from, is always pure and beautiful.
