Two people donning masks in a place where its patrons can leave their inhibitions at the door and indulge in their kink of choice leads to the most earthshaking sex either of them has ever experienced before. But then Walsh Brooks spies something that immediately clues him in on who he's just been with: his best friend's younger sister, Jorinda Price. What could Jorie be doing in a private sex club the Wicked Horse? Last Walsh check Jorie was married, but she informs her of her separation and why things are the way they are between her and her husband. Being with Walsh makes Jorie think that maybe she isn't as unsatisfying in bed as her husband claims she is, but as much as she wants to explore her sexuality with her brother's best friend, Walsh knows he shouldn't cross that line yet again. Jorie is a temptation that's becoming increasingly difficult for Walsh to resist, so maybe if they keep things purely physical, no harm should be done. But when Walsh and Jorie begin to recognize that this is more than sex, how will they resolve the fact that Jorie is still married and that Walsh doesn't actually do relationships?
I love how Sawyer Bennett is able to take a well-worn trope like falling-for-your-best-friend's-sibling, gives it the Wicked Horse Vegas treatment, and comes up with a downright dirty love story. The best part? Readers and fans of Bennett's like me reap the decadent rewards. With Wicked Wish, the author gives enough of the familiar bits, i.e. seemingly unrequited crushes from years ago, long-held secret fantasies, the bro code which supposedly includes never pursuing your best friend's sister, to satisfy lovers of this particular trope while also adding a few essential elements--Wicked Horse-patented sex, subtle yet heartfelt romance, and two equally strong main characters. Bennett's writing is enticing and the world she's created in the Vegas location of the Wicked Horse does the same thing as its predecessor--it leaves you wanting more. It's quite possible that I'm addicted to all things Wicked Horse. If you've never read a single book from either the original Wicked Horse series or this Wicked Horse Vegas spin-off, each reads well as a standalone, so go ahead and jump into the five-star wicked goodness of Wicked Wish. ♥
