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.
HOLY SMOKES!!! The disclaimer is no joke, take heed, I tell ya! *grins*
As I started reading this, I wanna say that I was worried. I’m not a big fan of relationships starting out with lies, which was pretty much had to happen here considering Sloane’s purpose. Those were points taken away already for Sloane, especially considering how Cain is. But I should’ve known better. This is Sawyer after all. I’ve loved her Cold Fury series, and 1 from her Legal Affairs series, so I shoulda known to just trust Sawyer’s writing.
Regardless of Sloane’s original intent, there is no denying the heat between these 2. And considering where Cain works and what he’s into… holy suuuwweeet smokin’ times!!! Some of them are even outside my comfort zone but did you think I cared? Of course not! HAH!
Cain owned his lifestyle, and gotta love him for that! He only has Sloane’s welfare in mind from the start. And I understood where he’s coming from, even at the end when things were revealed. I love how disconcerted he was by his inexplicable pull towards Sloane then seeing him reconciling all the warring feelings in his head. Sloane, as mentioned earlier, was on a disadvantage as far as I was concerned. I couldn’t muster enough sympathy at first so it did feel weird in the beginning, but sure enough, I slowly got it. By the end, I was rooting for her, cheering her on to get what she deserves.
So at the end of the day, I got a sizzling read that’s about self-discovery, acceptance and forgiveness.
I see Rand’s story is coming up next. Just like in the 1st book, the epilogue here is to give introduction to the next book in the series so we got a glimpse of what we’re in for with Rand’s story.
