My Rating: 3 out of 5
Cain Bonham is as big and bad as they come. After serving in the Marines, he’s returned home to Wyoming and now works as head of security at the exclusive sex club, The Wicked Horse. His job is to protect not only the patrons, but to zealously guard the secret existence of the club itself.
Sloane Preston is all about discovering secrets. As an undercover reporter, she’s determined to reveal the truth behind the facade of The Wicked Horse and expose it for all the world to see. She just didn’t count on her pathway into the club coming at the hands of one gorgeously scarred and bad ass bouncer who manages to easily possess her body and soul.
While Cain’s not looking for anyone to catch his eye, Sloane did it all the same, and he’s not bemoaning the fact that she’s as wickedly kinky as he is. As both get caught up in the sinful fantasies that only The Wicked Horse can create, secrets and loyalties will be tested and hearts will risk being broken.
**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.
Hotness Rating 5 out of 5
Wicked Lust, the second book of the The Wicked Horse series by Sawyer Bennett, was a love hate read for me. I loved the characters, the romance, the heat. I just have such an issue with a relationship that progresses based on a lie. At least our female protagonist felt a ton of guilt over it, but it still makes me crazy.
That being said this story has a ton to offer. Cain Bonham, head of security and one of the fantasy makers at an exclusive ultra secretive sex club is a hot as sin sexy character that has so much more to offer than his body. He's smart, responsible, and really seems to like women. I feel like someone working in this field, along with his once bitten, twice shy past, could become very jaded and not like women so much, but not the case with Cain.
Sloane is likeable enough, but I still go back to the secrets that she's holding onto. Ms. Bennett does a great job at making the reader feel the guilt that Sloane has, so there's that. I am sure this is more of an issue for me than it will be for most readers. This particular trope is always an issue for me. I just happen to enjoy this series and Ms. Bennett's writing enough to not want to skip this story. And I'm glad I didn't.
Bottom Line: If you are looking for a plot that will leave you squirming (in a good way) and a male protagonist that makes you sigh this story will fit the bill perfectly.
