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?
So Deliciously Hot and Sexy! 🔥
I did not want to put this sinfully hot book down! I would tell myself over and over again, just one more chapter, but I just couldn't get enough of Dean, Avril, and Andrew! Wicked Envy is my favorite book in this series so far, and though it is book 3, it can definitely be read as a standalone.
Friends to lovers is one of my absolute favorite tropes, and this book did not disappoint! For those readers wary of love triangles, fear not! I actually wouldn't classify this as a traditional love triangle book. To me, it's more a story about true friendship and the love between 3 people. Best friends since college, Dean, Avril, and Andrew, all work together at Dane's successful biotech company, Caterva, in Las Vegas. They are loyal, protective, supportive, and loving to each other (in a platonic way), until curiosity and a bad break-up sends them to The Wicked Horse sex club. This exploration opens their eyes and turns their worlds upside down. Can friendship really survive unscathed, after lines and boundaries are crossed?
I really enjoyed all three characters in this book. Dane was a fantastic broken alpha. On the one hand he is assertive and cocky (both in and out of the bedroom!), but on the other he is incredibly vulnerable and insecure. Your heart will break as his past is revealed and you see why he has guarded himself so much. Andrew was so sweet and genuine. I loved how supportive he always was of his friends and that through it all, he stayed true to himself and his ideals/beliefs. Avril was intelligent, driven, and unapologetic once she unlocked a side of herself at The Wicked Horse. When these three decide to move past just friendship, I thought for sure that my kindle would burst into flames from the scorching heat! It all works so deliciously well - one on one with Avril or all three together.
Yes, there is the inevitable push and pull as insecurities get the better of our characters, but I liked that the angst and drama wasn't over the top and excessive. In many ways, it was necessary to show the transformation of our characters and the strength of their friendship. The epilogue was absolutely wonderful and brought the story full circle. I can't recommend this incredibly hot and kinky friends to lovers romance enough!

Sizzling!! This story is crazy hot as three long time friends and business partners take their relationship in a direction none of them ever expected. With the Wicked Horse as their playground the passion is intense and satisfying until jealousy and unexpected feelings start to blur the threesome's vision. Will their relationship be able to handle all they've experienced or will the lines they've crossed be the threesomes downfall?
Highly erotic with a fantastic story weaved in the pages. If you enjoy a good menage story you don't want to miss this one. I highly recommend it.
Fantastic addition to this series!!
I devoured this book this afternoon, and oh, the feels it caused!!!
It was sexy, taboo, and everything we’ve come to love about the Wicked Horse series. These three heat up the pages, and it’s both breathtaking and heartbreaking to watch the relationship build. They each face their own demons, but I think I loved watching Dane’s transformation the most out of the three. We see him slowly begin to heal, and see his wall come down. Avril seemed to find herself as the book went on, and wouldn’t settle for anything less than she deserved. Andrew was just a sweetie, who had this wicked dirty side that he kept hidden, and it was kinda a shock when that side emerged.
The perfect addition to the Wicked Horse series that I would definitely recommend!!!
