ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date January 2, 2018

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.

•••••••••••

REVIEW: WICKED CHOICE is the fourth instalment in Sawyer Bennett’s contemporary, adult WICKED HORSE VEGAS erotic, romance series focusing on the men and women of the exclusive sex club The Wicked Horse and The Silo-a spin off from the author’s original Wicked Horse series. This is mercenaries for hire Rachel Hart and Bodie Wright’s story line. WICKED CHOICE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty.

NOTE: WICKED CHOICE is a bit of a departure from Sawyer Bennett’s Wicked Horse series. As a ‘bridge’ between two series Wicked Choice sets the stage for the author’s new romantic, suspense spin-off series focusing on the men and women who work for The Jameson Group-mercenaries for hire.

Told from dual first person points of view (Rachel and Bodie) WICKED CHOICE follows the building relationship between teammates and mercenaries for hire Rachel Hart and Bodie Wright. Following a mission that went horribly wrong Rachel buried her emotions in alcohol and sex-a one night stand with Bodie Wright-that resulted in an unplanned pregnancy for our story line heroine. Believing motherhood will interfere in her long range plans, our tough as nails, fiercely independent heroine makes Bodie an offer he cannot refuse. What ensues is the building romance and love between Rachel and Bodie-a highly sexual relationship neither one expected to go beyond the needs of their physical desires.

Bodie Wright is a family man who isn’t afraid to step up and step in when Rachel announces their untimely pregnancy. Hoping to raise the child on his own, Bodie becomes support network and loving partner for a woman who battles between head and her heart. Believing she would be a bad mother Rachel offers up a promise to hand over the child she will never love.

The relationship between Bodie and Rachel begins as teammates and partners that grows into something more. A one-night stand will push Bodie and Rachel together, for better or for worse, when an unplanned pregnancy forces our couple to make plans for the future, one way or another. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense but as usual, I dislike the use of a certain four-letter word that doesn’t belong in a romance story line.

We are introduced to Bodie and Rachel’s teammates and fellow mercenaries at The Jameson Group: Cage Murdock, Locke Meyers, August Greenfield, Tank Richardson,, Sal Mezzina, and Benji Darden; the current owner of The Jameson Group Kynan McGrath; Jerico Jameson, founder and former owner of The Jameson Group, as well as the current owner and proprietor of the Wicked Horse, Vegas; Bodie’s parents George and Estelle Wright; and Ob-Gyn Dr. Anchors.

The world building focuses on the dangerous assignment and potential threats to the men and women who work for The Jameson Group. The Wicked Horse and The Silo are no longer the main focus in this particular story line as the author sets the stage for her upcoming series. There is a sight cross-over with the author’s Cold Fury Hockey series as well.

WICKED CHOICE is a sexy, spirited and spicy story line; the characters re energetic and passionate; the romance is provocative and intoxicating.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date November 28, 2017

Score one for the Carolina Cold Fury hockey team as a stone-cold badass melts for a woman who makes his blood run hot.

As one of the league’s toughest enforcers, Van Turner is ruthless on the ice. He plays hard because it’s the only way to channel the rage boiling inside, and a reputation as an A-hole is better than everyone knowing the truth. Van has spent his entire life running from a secret that’s kept him from getting involved in relationships—or accepting lucrative deals with East Coast teams. Then the Carolina Cold Fury makes him an offer he can’t refuse . . . and Van meets a woman he can’t resist.

Simone Fournier is the stubborn one in her family—and that’s saying something, considering her brothers are two of the Cold Fury’s biggest stars. Simone gets what she wants, and what she wants is Van. Still, there’s a part of him Simone can’t reach, no matter how hard she tries. In private, he’s all fire and passion. In public, he freezes her out. Van may want to push her away, but Simone won’t let him go that easily. Because this time, she’s playing for keeps.

•••••••••••••••••

REVIEW: VAN is the ninth instalment in Sawyer Bennett’s contemporary, adult COLD FURY HOCKEY erotic, romance series focusing on the men and women of the Cold Fury Hockey team. This is twenty eight year old, team enforcer Van Turner, and Simone Fournier’s story line. VAN can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. Some of the events of VAN run parallel to and cross over with book eight LUCAS where we are first introduced to our story line couple. Simone is Lucas (#8) and Max’s (#6) younger sister.

Told from dual first person perspectives (Van and Simone) VAN follow the building relationship between the Cold Fury’s enforcer Van Turner, and Simone Fournier, Max and Lucas’s sister, who at the end of book eight-LUCAS-had quit university, and moved in with Lucas and Van. Simone’s parents had always planned for our heroine to attend medical school but a few months before completing her bachelor’s degree Simone walks into Lucas’s apartment and announces she wants something different for her life. Enter brooding and tormented Van Turner, Lucas’s teammate, and the man with whom Simone will fall in love. What ensues is the secret ‘friends with benefits’ relationship between Simone and Van, and the potential fall out as Van’s past is revealed for the world to see.

Van Turner is an unknown entity to the Cold Fury hockey team. A dark and dangerous past has our hero withdrawn, isolated, cold and calculating, refusing to acknowledge the elephant in the room; the demons that destroyed the family he once knew. Emotionally distant, with a temper to match, Van’s own teammates struggle with his attitude and actions, fearing reprisals if pushed too hard. Simone Fournier is a twenty-two year old young woman who struggles with a lack of direction, and her sexual attraction to a man who refuses to accept Simone, and everything she represents. Our heroine’s ‘seduction’ of Van Turner is methodical and calculating including pushing the boundaries of personal space and Van’s on-going rejection of Simone’s advances.

The relationship between Van and Simone is one of immediate attraction but saying that our heroine’s flirting and come-ons are not welcome by our story line hero. Van’s past is rife with betrayal and a darkness he prefers not to acknowledge-a darkness he believes threatens everyone he loves. The $ex scenes are numerous, erotic, intense and edgy but, once again, I take issue with the use of a certain four-letter word that I do NOT find romantic or seductive. Also, while Simone struggles with a lack of direction in her life, the choices she makes are questionable under the circumstances considering the close relationship with her family including two brothers who would do anything to help their little sister. For an intelligent woman she takes risks, and exposes herself to some controversial and problematic situations.

Several of the previous story line couples play secondary and supporting characters including Simone’s brother Lucas and Stephanie, Max and Julianne, as well as Van’s aunt Etta, a woman he loves like a mother.

VAN is an emotional story line of one man’s desperate attempts to move on from the past, and one woman’s frenzied pursuit of the man that calls to her heart. The premise is impassioned and heart-breaking; the characters are colorful but broken; the romance is highly sexual and energetic-Van and Simone like it rough in the bedroom. VAN is a bold and lively addition to the author’s Cold Fury Hockey series.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date October 27, 2017

The best of friends.
Two men. One woman.
A sinful playground called The Wicked Horse.

Entrepreneur turned millionaire, Dane Hawthorne, has been known to get his kicks at The Wicked Horse Vegas, and he has no shortage of beautiful women waiting for a shot at him. Driven to succeed, no matter if he’s in the boardroom or the bedroom, Dane never backs down from a challenge.

Avril Carrigan isn’t the type of woman to take risks in her personal life but after a broken heart and too much liquid courage, Avril decides to best way to get over one man, is to get under another. Looking to experience all the debauchery she’s heard about from her best friend and business partner, Dane, she requests one thing of him—take her to The Wicked Horse.

The request seems simple. One friend helping another in her time of need. But now that they’ve crossed the threshold, things aren’t as easy as they once seemed. Not only is Dane looking at Avril in a new light, but so is their other business partner and best friend, Andrew Collings. 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?

••••••••

REVIEW: WICKED ENVY is the third installment in Sawyer Bennett’s contemporary, adult THE WICKED HORSE VEGAS erotic, romance series-a spin off from the author’s The Wicked Horse Series. This is millionaire biotech entrepreneur Dane Hawthorne, COO Avril Carrigan, and business partner Andrew Collings story line. WICKED ENVY can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary.

NOTE: WICKED ENVY is an erotic romance story line and thusly contains sexually graphic scenes including oral, anal, MFM sexual situations and implied use of some mechanical apparatus.

Told from three first person perspectives (Dane, Avril, Andrew) WICKED ENVY is a friends to lovers story line that follows three friends from college to seventeen years laters wherein Caterva BioTech Industries is home to our story line trio. Geniuses in their own right, Andrew and Avril would find themselves partnered with their best friend Dane Hawthorne as they set out to rule the BioTech world but success in the business world does not necessarily equate to success in other aspects of their lives. At Dane’s recommendations Andrew reluctantly, and Avril excitedly visit the Las Vegas Sex Club known at The Wicked Horse where all three will discover that business friendships do not always overlap clearly with their sexual lives. What ensues is the building romantic relationship between Dane, Avril and Andrew, and the potential fall out when Dane wants something more from the woman he has always loved but struggles with an inability to trust which threatens everything he had and ever wanted.

Dane, Avril and Andrew have always loved one another as friends but their time together at The Wicked Horse opens their eyes to who, what and why of the palpable sexual energy that has been slowly growing between the story line trio. Andrew Collings is the more reluctant of the friends, and to his dismay discovers that Dane and Avril’s relationship is more than he had bargained for. Boundaries will be crossed until someone pulls pack to allow the blossoming relationship to grow.

The relationship between Dane, Avril and Andrews is one of friendship, family and business partners. Throughout the years the trio never once considered a sexual relationship with one another but one evening at The Wicked Horse finds all three reconsidering the future both in the bedroom and the boardroom. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and intense. The relationships are purely heterosexual although some M/M sexual situations are covertly experienced.

WICKED ENVY is a story about friendship, family and love; about trust and letting go; about knowing when to step back and walk away. The premise is sexy, spirited and heartbreaking; the characters are passionate and sassy; the romance is spicy, seductive and provocative. WICKED ENVY is an erotic and energetic look at three friends whose lives are intertwined from the past to the present; whose friendship defies the odds when love pushes two of them together.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date September 19, 2017

The Carolina Cold Fury hockey team is stacked with hotshots. But when a new player joins their ranks, he learns that even superstars can’t go it alone when it comes to love.

Lucas Fournier is only serious about one thing: hockey. The league’s fun-loving charmer, Luc is always up for a good prank or a great lay, and he has no intention of settling down. But being traded to the Carolina Cold Fury—and to play alongside his big brother, Max—is no joke. With another title in sight, the last thing Luc wants is to let his new teammates down. To succeed, Luc will need to keep his head in the game and the most . . . er, demanding member of his anatomy in check. But when temptation hits, Luc hits back harder.

Museum curator Stephanie Frazier has always put business before pleasure, which just about explains her nonexistent sex life. But when Stephanie meets Luc at a champagne-fueled gala, she finds herself flirting like crazy—and going home with the uninhibited athlete. For one night, she learns what passion is all about. She just never counted on the little surprise Luc leaves behind. And that’s when things really start to get . . . interesting.

••••••••••••

REVIEW: LUCAS is the eighth installment in Sawyer Bennett’s contemporary, adult COLD FURY HOCKEY erotic, romance series focusing on the men and women of the Carolina Cold Fury professional hockey team. This is defenseman Lucas Fournier, and museum curator Stephanie Frazier’s story line. LUCAS can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story lines is revealed where necessary. Lucas is Max Fournier’s (MAX) younger brother.

Told from dual first person perspectives (Luc and Stephanie) LUCAS follows the building relationship between the Carolina Cold Fury’s latest player acquisition Lucas Fournier, and museum curator Stephanie Frazier. Having met at a local fund raising gala Lucas finds himself up close and personal with the woman in charge. Enter Stephanie Frazier, museum curator and the woman with whom Lucas will fall in love. A one-night stand with Stephanie will change Lucas Fournier’s future-a future he is hoping to convince Stephanie to come along for the ride.

Stephanie struggles with memories from the past-a past shrouded in parental emotional and physical neglect that has shaped our heroine’s outlook with low self esteem and the inability to trust. Lucas is a man determined to bring Stephanie out of her shell but Stephanie’s past has done too much damage to be overcome by the seduction of Lucas Fournier.

The relationship between Stephanie and Lucas is one of immediate attraction but an attraction that is tempered by Stephanie’s news and Lucas’s battle for the Stanley Cup. Lucas makes every attempt to bring Stephanie into his life but our heroine battles too many demons. Stephanie’s inability to move on from the past is frustrating-sometimes growing up means taking responsibility for the present and the future-not wallowing in what was or what could have been. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.

Several of the previous story line characters including Max and his fiancée Jules, and Luc’s parents Marilyn and Laurence Fournier play secondary and supporting roles. We are re-introduced to Max and Lucas’s younger sister Simone, and Luc’s teammate/roommate Van Turner. Simone and Van’s story line is next.

LUCAS is a heartbreaking and emotional story line as one woman struggles with her past, and the man who is willing to push her to accept everything he has to offer. Both of the leading characters have issues with maturity including the push and pull, yin and yang of a relationship that was never meant to go beyond a one-night stand. Stephanie’s independence is hampered by her stubbornness, thick walls, and inability to let go of the past. The premise is engaging; the romance is edgy but I struggled with my lack of lack of concern for the story line heroine. I could completely understand Luc’s frustration with the emotional distance and attitude of the woman with whom he had fallen in love.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date August 11, 2017

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.

•••••••••••

REVIEW: WICKED WISH is the second installment in Sawyer Bennett’s contemporary, adult THE WICKED HORSE VEGAS erotic, BDSM romance series- a spin of from THE WICKED HORSE series. This is thirty six year old billionaire casino owner Walsh Brooks, and twenty eight year old copyeditor Jorinda ‘Jorie’ Pearce’s story line. WICKED WISH can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the previous story line is revealed where necessary. You do not have to have read the previous series to enjoy or understand the spin off.

NOTE: WICKED WISH is an erotic romance story line and thusly contains sexually graphic scenes including oral, anal and situations using mechanical apparatus.

Told from dual first person points of view (Jorie and Walsh) WICKED WISH focuses on the best friend’s little sister trope. Walsh has known Jorie all of her life, in fact, Walsh helped raised Jorie following the death of her mother. Best friends with her brother Micah Webb, Walsh knows Jorie is off –limits but a masquerade event at The Wicked Horse Vegas sex club finds Walsh coming face to face with the woman that starred in his fantasies years before. What ensues is the building but forbidden relationship between Walsh and Jorie, and the fall out when Micah discovers the truth about his little sister and best friend’s secret affair.

Jorie Pearce needs to prove that she is nothing like the woman her husband claims her to be, and an evening at The Wicked Horse Vegas has our heroine exploring the naughtier side of life. But finding Walsh Brooks, the man that she has loved all of her life, came nothing short of a surprise that ended when Walsh discovered that the woman he ‘used’ at the club, is his best friend’s little sister.

The relationship between Jorie and Walsh is a friends to lovers romance; a forbidden sexual relationship between two people pulled together by secrets of the past, and a whispered longing that has never been sated. The $ex scenes are intimate, aggressive and intense. Some scenes may not be suitable for all readers.

The world building continues to focus on the sexual scenarios and the people at The Wicked Horse- an exclusive club where discretion and privacy come with a cost.

WICKED WISH is an edgy, seductive and provocative story line. The premise is sultry; the characters are sexy and passionate; the romance is emotional, erotic and intense. WICKED WISH is an intoxicating look at a lifestyle only a few have the chance to experience or explore.

excerpt

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.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date July 11, 2017

Sawyer Bennett’s brand new series of standalone romances! LOVE HURTS!

Hollywood hath no fury like a woman scorned. In this fun, flirty second-chance romance from New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett, an aspiring starlet reconnects with her first love.

Eden Goodnight went to Los Angeles to make it big, not to be publicly humiliated by her cheating fiancé at a red-carpet premiere. But when Eden returns to her hometown to put the scandal behind her, she can barely find a sympathetic shoulder to cry on. Turns out the locals are worse than the paparazzi, and they all think she’s turned into a spoiled brat. But in a strange twist of fate, the one person who seems to understand what Eden’s going through is Cooper Mayfield . . . the boy she left behind.

Small-town charm is no match for the glitz and glamour of Hollywood. At least that’s what Coop’s been telling himself all these years. As Eden’s old flame—and the landscaper for her family’s historic home—Coop feels some responsibility for getting her out of her funk. But as soon as he sees that million-dollar smile, he’s a goner. Soon they’re making out like teenagers again. But when a life-changing role falls into Eden’s lap, Coop just hopes she doesn’t give up on a love that’s meant to be.

•••••••••

REVIEW: JILTED is the second installment in Sawyer Bennett’s contemporary, adult LOVE HURTS erotic, romance series. This is Academy Award winning actress Eden Goodnight, and landscaper/gardener Cooper Mayfield’s story line. JILTED can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty.

Told from dual first person points of view (Eden and Cooper) JILTED focuses on the rekindling romance between former high school and college sweethearts Eden Goodnight, and Cooper Mayfield. Fourteen years earlier Eden Goodnight and Cooper Mayfield were in love: college sweethearts, making plans for the future when a talent scout from Hollywood changed Eden’s life forever. From the runway to the red carpet our heroine became the Hollywood ‘it’ girl. But a red-carpet humiliation by her fiancé and action star Brad Wright sent our heroine back home to small town Newberry, Georgia and into the arms of the man she has always loved. Enter Cooper Mayfield, the man Eden left behind for the bright lights and glamor of Hollywood and LA. What ensues is the rekindling romance between Eden and Cooper, Eden’s battle to be accepted by the people in her hometown of Newberry, Georgia, and Eden and Cooper’s struggle to remain a couple in the face of their diverging careers.

Eden Goodnight is a star whose reputation back home is something less than to be desired. Beautiful and talented, our heroine finds it difficult to assimilate back into Newberry Georgia-from the heartbreaking memories of her past and the town’s reluctance to welcome the actress with open arms Eden Goodnight struggles with her attraction to the man she could never forget. Cooper Mayfield has been angry for a very long time, betrayed by the only woman he would ever love, Cooper refuses to commit to one woman, let alone the woman who destroyed his heart.

The relationship between Cooper and Eden is one of second chances but their second chance at romance comes with too many ghosts of the past, and the belief that Eden has somehow disavowed the people back home. The $ex scenes are intimate and intense, erotic and seductive. There is plenty of back and forth in the early stages of their reintroduction not to mention the number of times their possessions end up in the hall, on the floor and out the bedroom window.

We are introduced to Eden’s former fiancé actor Brad Wright, and fellow actress Lilliana Prentice; Eden’s business manager Colleen O’Hearn; Cooper’s former fling Ashley Barton, bakery owner Missy Chambers, and several locals who try to make Eden’s life a living h*ll. The town of Newberry, Georgia feels betrayed by one of their own, and forgiveness comes when the truth is revealed.

JILTED is a story about one woman’s rise to fame, her fall from grace, and the man who would be there to pick up the pieces. There are moments heartbreak and humor, friendship and love, retribution and forgiveness. The premise is engaging, entertaining and energetic; the characters are dynamic and lively; the romance is passionate and inspiring. JILTED is a second chance romance with a spirited heroine and the man who is willing to sacrifice for the woman he loves.

ABOUT THE BOOK: Release Date June 5, 2017

Add to your GOODREADS shelf

As the owner of The Wicked Horse, an elite sex club located along the Vegas Strip, Jerico Jameson never spends the night alone. Gorgeous, ripped, and totally alpha, Jerico doesn’t grant favors and will rarely give you the time of day—unless he wants you in his bed. So when the sister of his sworn enemy shows up asking for help, saying no should be easy. But when Jerico takes one look at her and sees an opportunity to help this beautiful woman while exacting revenge on her brother, he’s not about to pass that up.

Beaten and bruised, Trista Barnes is running out of options, and Jerico is her last chance to get out of the mess she’s in. She doesn’t know why Jerico despises her brother so much, but as long as he can help her, she doesn’t care. Jerico offers her safety while opening her up to a sinful world she never knew existed.

As she succumbs to Jerico’s erotic charm, Trista lets herself fall into the wicked world of guilt free pleasure with no regrets. Under his strong alpha hand, she blooms, and so does Jerico’s possessiveness. But what happens when Trista finds out she was a pawn in Jerico’s game all along, and that the price for his favor was steeper than she ever imagined – her heart.

••••••••••••

REVIEW: WICKED FAVOR is the first installment in Sawyer Bennett’s contemporary, adult WICKED HORSE VEGAS erotic, romance series focusing on the elite sex club known as the Wicked Horse. Wicked Horse Vegas is a spin off from the author’s The Wicked Horse series. This is club owner and former Marine Jerico Jameson, and Trista Barnes’s story line. You do not have to have read the original series to understand and follow the spin off.

NOTE: WICKED FAVOR contains sexually graphic scenes of M/M, M/F/M situations including anal, oral, and group play that may not be suitable for all readers

Told from dual first person points of view (Jerico and Trista) WICKED FAVOR focuses on Trista’s search for help. With a loan shark threatening her life, Trista calls in a favor from Jerico Jameson-a favor owed to Trista’s brother Jayce Barnes-but a favor that comes at a cost. Enter Jerico Jameson-owner of the elite Vegas sex club The Wicked Horse and The Jameson Group International Security Services-the man with whom Trista will fall in love. What ensues is the building relationship between Trista and Jerico, but a relationship predicated on betrayal, revenge and fraud.

Trista Barnes is struggling to pay off the loan-a loan that has doubled within weeks of receipt. Her only recourse is Jerico Jameson-a former Marine buddy of her brother’s but a man with an agenda as it pertains to our leading heroine. To pay back the loan Trista must work at The Wicked Horse-doing whatever job Jerico asks. Jerico Jameson is determined to enact revenge for sins of the past-Trista Barnes is his path of vengeance but a path that meanders into dangerous territory.

The relationship between Trista and Jerico begins as a business arrangement but soon begins to turn into something more. Jerico makes no promises for the future-a thirty day work detail to pay back the loan-but thirty days where our couple will fall in love before Trista uncovers the truth behind Jerico’s plans for revenge. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic, and provocative including ménage play, voyeurism, exhibitionism, group play and more.

We are introduced to Trista’s brother Jayce Barnes; her niece Corrine, as well as her mother Jolene; Jerico’s confidant and business partner Kynan McGrath, and an assortment of employees and guests of The Wicked Horse-Las Vegas.

The world building focuses on betrayal and revenge; the building relationship between Jerico and Trista; and the fall out as the truth is finally revealed. The reader becomes a voyeur into the back rooms and playrooms of The Wicked Horse, as the members, guests and owners partake of the offered fantasies.

WICKED FAVOR is a sexy, spicy and erotic romance that follows two people pulled together by sins of the past. The premise is energetic; the romance is carnal and wicked; the characters are colorful, spirited and dynamic. WICKED FAVOR is a story of passion, revenge, betrayal and hope.

Excerpt

 

Jerico

For three nights, I’ve watched her.
By any definition, I’d totally be considered a stalker.
But from the comfort of my office, I can pull up the security feeds on my monitor and take note of the subtle changes in Trista as she works the condiment tray. Truth be told, I don’t need her working that job and have a much greater need for her to go back to cleaning, but fuck if she doesn’t look a hell of a lot sexier in a thong than a turtleneck and pants.
Part of my training in the military was gathering intelligence, so I can pick up on the slightest of details that could tell me a very important story, and there were a lot of changes I noticed over the last three days with Trista as she settled into her job routine.
The most important and pleasing thing was that Trista’s stopped hiding her sexual curiosity. When she first started working here, she looked around a room in a vague way, not taking in too many details. I think she was afraid to watch.
Afraid of what it would do to her body.
But that has definitely changed.
Now, Trista watches what the patrons are doing. Sometimes, she stares for long moments and much to my delight, the kinkier the acts, the longer she stares. My trained eyes take in her chest rising and falling to keep up with what I’m sure was a racing pulse. She’d adjust the straps covering her breasts in a very minute way either because the pressure on her nipples was too much, or because she wanted to create some friction.
Naughty, naughty girl.
My favorite though was when she would cross one long leg over the other and squeeze her thighs together as she watched, and I had no doubt her clit was probably pulsing with desire.
Trista was getting braver too. She never once took any man up on an offer to join, and there had been some I’d seen. I had told her she could if business was slow, but I also made a spectacle in front of Willis that she was off limits. Perhaps Trista thinks she’s off limits to everyone, and it’s fine by me if she wants to think that.
