Wicked Angel (Wicked Horse Vegas, Book #6)
Release Date: August 6, 2019
First there was pain, and now there is just… nothing. No one can ever understand the losses I’ve suffered. A solitary existence that consists of my work and the empty house that serves as a constant reminder of all I have lost.
After months of paralyzing emptiness, I turn to The Wicked Horse so I can feel something. Anything, really. Any shred of emotion that will explain why I’m still here. Any justification for why my life was spared and theirs were not.
It’s all in vain. Not even the debauchery of the notorious sex club can fill the hollowness that consumes me.
Until she walks in.
Absolutely perfect. Gorgeous and bends to my will. Gives me her body willingly, while expecting nothing more from me than the pleasure I offer her. And the more she gives, the more I find myself wanting to take.
Wanting to crawl out of my personal hell for this wicked angel.
The Wicked Horse Vegas is a verifiable sexual playground – one that appeals to all types of people for different reasons, and because the type of kink that its members are into vary, the limitless possibilities keep them coming back time and time again.
Benjamin Hewitt’s membership at the exclusive club is a means to an end – an attempt on his part to feel something, anything for the first time since his life was horrifically altered. But while he found his release in certain situations, he was still merely existing, focusing on his career, but shutting everyone out…until her.
For Elena Costieri, The Wicked Horse is an opportunity to give up control, to submit her body to someone purely for the sexual pleasure it provides. To be used in a way that she actually demands instead of for selfish reasons on the part of her boyfriends. It’s a way for her to explore a different side of herself and see how much she enjoys submitting to a man’s demands.
And boy do Benjamin and Elena sizzle together; it’s abundantly clear how much physical chemistry these two share, but it’s also obvious that what they feel toward one another is more than simply a pleasurable release, and regardless of how many times Elena says that she doesn’t want anything more than sex from Benjamin, the fact that she’s always intertwined love and sex together is not something that can change so drastically, especially with someone she seems to connect with on a number of levels.
Because Sawyer Bennett gives readers both main characters’ perspectives, readers understand why Benjamin feels empty…why he’s closed himself off from everyone around him. The fact that he goes from feeling nothing to feeling way too much when it comes to Elena explains why he’s hot and cold with her. I will say that even though we were given Elena’s point of view as well, even now, I don’t feel like I understand her choices, and I truly felt like readers learned more about Elena’s best friend than Elena herself, which perplexed me quite a bit.
Even though I wanted a bit more insight into who Elena is and the reasons her life has led her down this path, I did enjoy her and Benjamin’s story. Readers will feel just how deeply Benjamin’s loss affects him even a year later and just how difficult the struggle to move on is illustrated in the lack of and overabundance of emotions that he must deal with throughout the story. And the scenes at The Wicked Horse and outside of the club are scorching.
I read every book in the original and Vegas Wicked Horse series, and I know that every time, I enter this world, I’m going to read a sexy story that leads to so much more than the physical pleasure the characters experience, which is why it’s a series I thoroughly enjoy!
