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.

Wicked Lust is so hot my kindle almost melted, and yet, there is also a real story and a plot that is a complete page-turner!

Review - (un)Conventional Bookviews

Sawyer Bennett has her hot, erotic scenes down pat, I needed an electric fan to cool down so I could continue reading Wicked Lust! And on top of that her characters are multifaceted and complex, the story and the plot well done, and I just couldn’t get enough! There is plenty of very kinky sex, and my eyes almost popped out a few times – but it didn’t shock me enough to stop me from reading 😉 And as I said, there was a real, solid story around all the sexiness, and that made Wicked Lust an amazing read!

Sawyer really outdid herself both in the down and dirty department, and with the complex story surrounding Sloane and Cain. They both had a checkered past, with a lot of heartache, and neither of them thought they’d trust someone again. Which made it all the sweeter when it became clear they just couldn’t get enough of each other; without that being all about the sex. There is a lot of politics, secrets, blackmail and some stubborn characters who try to do what’s right, especially when the going gets tough.

Well written, mostly from Cain’s perspective, but with several chapters in Sloan’s point of view as well, Wicked Lust shares most of the characters’ secrets with the readers, while keeping them well hidden from the other characters. And I just can’t wait to get my hands on the next Wicked Horse story! The preview at the end of this story made me yearn for it to be released tomorrow.

Fave Quotes - (un)Conventional Bookviews

While I get hit on all the time, women have a hard time holding my gaze the way this one does. They’re content to stare at my feet while they try to flirt because my eyes are sometimes too cold and my scar is too angry looking. But not this woman.

It’s the story of my life. Working to pay off debt I didn’t incur, but that I’m still obligated to settle under the eyes of the law. If Rachel wasn’t already dead, sometimes I swear I could wring her scrawny neck out of frustration.

That’s usually not my thing. I like women who are aggressive and know what they want. With as much dirty fucking as I do on a regular basis vanilla women are just a tad too boring.

  1. I’m not a big fan of erotica I confess but it’s nice to see you had a great time with this one. I’m curious about the characters secrets though!!!!

  2. Geez Lexxie, you know I have some of Bennett’s early work (Off Sides) and maybe a few others…and really, I *should* read them first. But you’re making want to spend some of my GC on this series! It sounds so good with it’s complex plot and well developed characters…and of course, the hot sex! 😉 An electric fan, you say??
    Happy Monday, my friend! I hope it’s going well. You teach today, right? I hope it all went smoothly and that your students were pleasant. **BIG HUGS**

    • Nah… no need to read the others first, Brandee *grins* go ahead! Yup, and electric fan for sure, you might be able to sit outside on your porch right now to read it… it would definitely keep you warm.
      I did teach today, and it was a very nice class. I have them again tomorrow, but in two groups. The next days, it’ll be another class.
      Happy Monday right back at you. *BIG HUGS*

  3. Great review, Lexxie! I do enjoy Sawyer Bennett’s Cold Hockey Fury series but I am not really a fan of erotic writing in general. I have stayed away from this series because it may be a little eye popping for boring old me. That being said, your review does make me kind of want to check it out.

    • If you’re afraid of eye popping, you should probably start with another one than this, Carole… At one point, the female lead is with several guys at the same time, and that would have made my eyes pop a couple of years ago. It’s really well written, though, and as I said, there is a lot more to the story than the sex.

  4. oh this sounds fantastic and oh how HOT!!! I do get nervous with the menage type situations….but I haven’t read a book from this author I didn’t like, so I do plan on reading it. And I love your icon tags….so pretty!!
