 A Review by Wendy

Sometimes you just connect with an author. You think you are able to see what they are aiming for in their work...Sawyer Bennett has been an author who has traveled many roads... but on each journey... at its core, it was always Romance with a Capital R.

She has written series with a Legal theme, others with Sports. She has done contemporary romance with the hook of Sustainable Farming and she has never shied away from Sexy Times in all of them.

Bennett has also branched out into the more sexual/erotic stories with her Wicked Horse Series. With these series, she approached stories which centered around a sex club... where more than Vanilla Play would take place. Make no mistake, these books brought those who had more adventurous ideas then some to the forefront...But what was so true to Sawyer Bennett was the realistic way she would do this... and through it all, the entire theme of every book was the need and fulfillment of the romantic calling between the main couple.

Take away the environment, the outside players and to each story's core... was the Romance. Period.

I am highlighting this because Sawyer Bennett discusses this in her forward of this entry. She gives her thoughts/desires to the readers and when an author takes the time to do so... it is a gift.

Wicked Wish is a tale about two people who never would have acted on dormant feelings they had for each other if it weren't for a combination of circumstances coming together.

Jorinda Pearce is a woman who thought her life had been planned out and she was living it. Was it everything she thought it would be... maybe not...But it was solid. She married a man she loved, had a home, a career and she always tried to do the "right" thing.

Well, the husband she loved wasn't all that satisfied with his life... and proceeded to tell Jorinda the fault for his dissatisfaction was on her... He said she was sh!t in bed. He also manipulated her out of her home she had with him, too.

That's Cold...and Not Too Great for a Gal's Ego...

Jorinda left Los Angeles, went back to Henderson, Nevada and moves in with her bestie Elena. After a few weeks, Elena decides she has had enough of Jorie's moping about. After listening to why Jorie was left... and how the ex destroyed any sexual confidence Jorie may have had... Elena pushes her to go to a sex club in Las Vegas.

It is the perfect set up because it is a masquerade night... so no one will know who anyone is... which can alloy all types of mental freedom. Just what Jorie needs. She can cut loose, feel free and get back her sexual mojo.

Walsh Brooks is one of those men... you know the type. He oozes sexuality and women are drawn to him. His body is cut but not artificial...he has longish hair but not stylized. He has piercing eyes and when he looks at you, it can seem like he is looking into your soul.

Walsh is a mega millionaire. He owns real estate and a casino/hotel in Vegas. He is set. What he does not want or need is a relationship. He has no trouble taking care of his needs; that is what the Wicked Horse is for. It is the perfect place for him as he likes his sex rough and all the players are on board with whatever is offered.

It is the masquerade night and Elena has made up Jorie in such an intriguing way... using feathers all along her hairline and face... only leaving her eyes and mouth uncovered. Her eyes were done with smoky shadows making her green eyes pop. Couple this look with a tight strapless dress with long legs and she was a knock out.

Both women get stares right away when they settled into the club and before anything really starts, Jorie's attention was pulled to a man with a hood covering his head as he walked through the bar area.

His body moved with ease and command.
He didn't look about... no, he was focused on a destination...
A room with a wall of glass where there was a contraption of sorts...
This man then beckoned any comers to come and play with him...

Jorie couldn't breathe... but knew this was the answer to her questions about who she was... Was she really not able to satisfy a man like her ex had said... This Hooded Man... if she could satisfy him then maybe she would know the truth about herself...

Naturally this story takes off with the coupling of these two and it is not Vanilla at all...But it is something both participants know was the best experience either of them have had in their lives....
What happens next throws both of them into turmoil...

After this sexual explosion, Walsh figures out who this woman is and this is a huge complication...
When Jorie is confronted and Walsh is revealed , she agrees... this is a huge complication.

Sawyer Bennett takes a troupe we have all read... forbidden love and couples it with a woman in need to find herself. She needs to figure out exactly who she is and what she wants out of life. She is confronted with the challenge of letting go of a past and be willing to take a future more to her liking.

Walsh has a huge quandary. He has to decide what he will choose... a friendship that means the world to him or a love which was something he never knew he could have...

These both have their paths to navigate... and they are not easy... many emotional landmines. But in the end...they come through their journeys... intact and together.

So as you can see, these Wicked Horse stories are full blown Romances... but with some extremely hot and steamy scenes... which always drive the story forward...Win Win.

Sawyer Bennett you keep stretching and writing... I'll keep reading.
