This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
New York Times bestselling author, Sawyer Bennett, is happy to introduce a new Wicked Horse club in Las Vegas and you’re cordially invited to attend the grand opening...
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.
Undeniably, Unequivocally, and Incredibly HOT!
Call the fire department!! This book was undeniably, unequivocally, and incredibly hot, hot, hot! It was fascinating and captivating and kept me up way past my bedtime because I just couldn't put it down. This is book 1 in the author's new Wicked Horse Vegas series (which is a spin off from the original Wicked Horse series set in Wyoming).
Jerico and Trista were amazing! The chemistry between them was palpable and I loved how they each brought out a different side in the other. This is the first book I have ever read involving a sex club and so I really wasn't sure what to expect. Sawyer Bennett did not disappoint and I am definitely a fan of this genre/trope now ;) One scene in particular in the Silo almost made my kindle explode from the sexual intensity and chemistry. Seriously. HOT. Jerico was a fantastic anti-hero. I wasn't sure I even liked him at first, but he definitely grew on me as the book progressed and by the end I was sold. I also really enjoyed Trista's evolution and how she became comfortable in her own skin. Boundaries are pushed for both and I loved the push and pull as they both tried to deny their growing connection. It made the moment they surrender themselves all the more explosive and intense.
The only reason this isn't a five star read for me is that the main drama came very late in the story and made the ending feel a little rushed. I also felt like a secondary character played a more vital role in the resolution than was necessary. I do love Kynan though and hope he will get his own story in the future! Overall, this was a really entertaining and steamy read that I definitely recommend! I can't wait for the next book in the series!

***4.5 ‘Letting Go’ Stars***
When it was announced that Sawyer Bennett was doing a spin off of The Wicked Horse series I swear I let out a squee of glee and was bouncing around like a kid having to go pee. I loved the original series and couldn’t wait to see how the debauchery level would raise with a franchise in Vegas and I wasn’t disappointed! Don’t even bother with panties while reading this baby because it’s HOT! And be prepared to have your heart melt was a confirmed one and done bachelor gets his own frosty heart melted when he least expected it.
Jerico Jameson is all kinds of hot smexy alpha male (Seriously. Does Sawyer Bennett write any non smexy alpha’s?? Don’t think so) who comes across as a cold and calculating one and done man and yet...It was that and yet that had me waiting to see just who the man beneath all that ice was and the wait was worth it. The heart that beat was bruised, but as it started to heal the man became even more lethal to not only my panties, but my heart.
I adored Trista from the start. She’s hit a major bump in the road, and despite the odds being stacked against her, she takes it in stride and does what needs to be done to get through it. I loved how comfortable she was with herself and her sexuality and was willing to step outside of her comfort zone, with a little hesitancy, but she still dove in like a champ.
With their relationship starting out on uneven ground, as well as a bit shady, it was fun to watch as things with Jerico and Trista not only started to heat up, but even out until they both held an almost equal amount of power in their relationship which changed the tone of it, at least on one level. To say that they were smoking hot is an understatement, and probably unnecessary to put out there, but there it is. I’m still waffling over how I feel about Jerico using Trista as a pawn and just HOW he was going to do it, but anger and hurt make one do crazy things, as well as how it all played out. So since I don’t have a clear cut feeling towards it all, I’ll just be a little lame and leave it as I really love where the are at the end of the book.
It’s hard for me to NOT be all kinds of happy while reading a Sawyer Bennett book since I’m a fangirl because she writes such great characters. I get drawn in from the first page and more often than not fall into adoration, love, lust with the characters and even if I don’t, I find them intriguing enough to see what becomes of them in the end. And for those that want to know. This is an erotic romance that takes place in a sex club so, YES, to all your questions and it is all deliciously consensual.

Holy wow! I was so excited for this next stage of the Wicked Horse series by Sawyer Bennett. We meet Jerico Jameson who has opened a Wicked Horse in Las Vegas, and his "favor" is owed to someone who went from friend to enemy. Trista will do whatever it takes to get the money she needs, including working at a sex club. I loved their interactions and banter so much. I couldn't put it down!
