“It overtakes you.
Then frees you.”
You know the saying “What happens in Vegas…” Yeah I’m sure you get the idea, but let me spell it out for you anyway; everything that happens is H.O.T, S.E.X.Y and sooooooooo E.R.O.T.I.C.
I always look forward to diving head first into a Sawyer Bennett story and I’m yet to read one by this talented author that I haven’t thoroughly enjoyed. Her stories are always well thought out and captivating with expertly crafted characters that I love getting to know. I was completely engaged from start to finish, to the point where I pretty much read this in one sitting. Wicked Favor is book one of Sawyer Bennett’s The Wicked Horse Vegas series, but can be read as a standalone.
Jerico is an ex-military special ops agent and now proud owner of The Wicked Horse Vegas, a very exclusive sex club in Vegas. The cost of a one-day membership is five hundred dollars (I did say it was exclusive), so he knows it’s a way to weed out the clientele who don’t belong, and ensure the club only serves the elite.
While escorting a regular patron of his club to one of the exclusive sex rooms, Jerico is unimpressed when he is confronted with his past. The woman introduces herself as Trista, the sister of Jayce Barnes. A man Jerico wants absolutely nothing to do with, but… Jerico is indebted to Jayce, so he forces himself to hear her out.
Trista is in a bind. She needs money and she needs it fast. Trista’s money troubles have come from a good place; she had to borrowed money from a loan shark in order to pay for her niece’s surgery, and as a result is in dire straits. Her only hope is to approach the very wealthy club owner Jerico for a loan, she is well aware he owes her brother a favor, so what does she have to lose?
Jerico agrees to give Trista the money in exchange for her employment at the club. And let me tell you things start seriously heating up between this dynamic duo. Trista becomes attracted to her new boss in a way she never saw coming and Jerico simply cannot get enough of his new employee. This is new territory for this high powered playboy; he never goes back twice… well except now of course.
“Trista is the standard. She’s what all women should aspire to be, and what all men should hope to have one day. I get it now. And I’m ready.”
I loved this couple. Trista is a strong, independent sassy heroine with a smart mouth who loves her family dearly and Jerico is harbouring some serious demons from his past, but airs a certain amount of confidence, sophistication and beauty that very few can pass up, Trista included.
Wicked Favor had everything I have come to know and love about Sawyer Bennett; intrigue, desire, fun, sexy times and a sassy heroine that kept me on my toes. If you are looking for your next thrilling book to involve a sexy as sin alpha hero that you won’t be able to get enough of, then seriously check this one out. I have no doubt that there are more great books to come in this new series.
