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.

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.
