Review: Wicked Lust (The Wicked Horse #2) by Sawyer BennettWicked Lust by Sawyer Bennett

Cain Bonham is as big and bad as they come. After serving in the Marines, he’s returned home to Wyoming and now works as head of security at the exclusive sex club, The Wicked Horse. His job is to protect not only the patrons, but to zealously guard the secret existence of the club itself.

Sloane Preston is all about discovering secrets. As an undercover reporter, she’s determined to reveal the truth behind the facade of The Wicked Horse and expose it for all the world to see. She just didn’t count on her pathway into the club coming at the hands of one gorgeously scarred and bad ass bouncer who manages to easily possess her body and soul.

While Cain’s not looking for anyone to catch his eye, Sloane did it all the same, and he’s not bemoaning the fact that she’s as wickedly kinky as he is. As both get caught up in the sinful fantasies that only The Wicked Horse can create, secrets and loyalties will be tested and hearts will risk being broken.

**Warning: this book has sex in it. Lots of sex. Dirty sex. The Wicked Horse Series is a bit different than what Sawyer Bennett normally writes. While you’ll still enjoy fabulous characters, a suspenseful story, some witty banter and an epic romance, there’s just… a lot of sex. You’ve been warned.

As I read Wicked Fall book 1 in this series, I kept thinking I hope Bridger is next… that was until the epilogue and then I was like OMG I want Cain now!!!
Well, Wicked Lust did not disappoint! It opens with a prologue that was the epilogue to Wicked Fall, it is a great refresher and so puts you in the right frame of mind as to who Cain is when the reader connects with him again in this book.
Cain Bonham is Head of Security at the Wicked Horse. Witnessing Cain go from a top requested Fantasy Maker at The Wicked Horse, to man who had his heart stolen without even realizing it until it is almost too late, kept me glued to my kindle.
Cain’s spotting of Sloane from across the crowded bar at The Wicked Horse was well done. The reader knows from the moment Cain locks her in his cross hairs that she is different for him. Oh and the way Sloane gets his attention has me giggling and cheering her one!
This story has a wonderful use of secondary characters and not just the Wicked Horse cast or the additions to the sex scenes that turn the heat up big time.  Ms. Bennett crafted a scene with Cain’s nephew that pulled at my heart while showing the depth of Cain’s.
Speaking of Cain’s heart, the backstory that broke his, will break yours; so powerful!
So if the prior book in this series has #thelick this one has #thestroke, the play between the characters in this book is no holds barred as it is a community of people who view the physical, the joy of sex and orgasms as separate from emotion.  I am not sure I can be that person but oh was it fun to read!
Warning this one gets HOT and dirty….
“Trust me…. the prince didn’t want to just kiss Snow White to wake her up. He wanted to f*ck the innocence out of her.” 
I snort and shake my head. “You’ve ruined that movie and my childhood for me.” 
Ms. Bennett so makes it work, through all the sweaty, lust filled words, through the sex that yes goes beyond just two people, it is very clear there is a deep connection between Cain and Sloane, one others around them see and respect (yes respect, trust me it works).
Wait til you see what Cain does to elicit this line from Sloane:
“I better come hard like you promised or there will be hell to pay for what I went through today.”
This one also has love that shines through:

“Can you love me?” Another whisper of his lips against mine.

“Yes,” I say with a smile. “I can totally do that.”
Did I love Sloane at first no…. do I understand why she did what she did, yes. In the end, was I pleased with the happy she brought Cain? Hell yes!
As with the first book, this one so made me want Bridger’s backstory, it made me want alone time with him, it made me want to get in his head and it has me dying to see who captures this man’s heart and soul.
But as this one comes to a close, I was so fine with Rand being next…. because yes in this one we meet two new men Logan and Rand and I am very excited to see both these men get a happy!
Book 1 – Wicked Fall

    I loved Cain & Sloane’s story–is a must read as was Wicked Fall-
    Sawyer’s support characters are the best
