Book Review and Giveaway for Wicked Favor by Sawyer Bennett


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.

REVIEW: 4 Forgiving Stars
"She's gorgeous and sexy and funny and smart, and since I first put my mouth between her legs, I haven't looked at another woman."

Lesson learned: I should never second guess Sawyer Bennett, seriously, but this book was a test of my patience and a battle of the wills. But, as usual, Sawyer Bennett didn't let me down. Leave it to her to wind up this love story and let it play out slowly and meticulously, while turning up the heat a notch or three.

In the beginning:
I loved Trista.
I wanted to punch Jerico.

In the end:
I wanted to hug Jerico.
I loved Trista.

With this spinoff from the Original Wicked Horse Series, we got to see a little more of a wicked side being based out in Vegas. Sexier covers, feistier females, but thankfully no shortage of sinfully sexy men to read about! With the way this book started out, I was a little concerned. I will be completely honest in saying that I wasn't sold on the first 30% of the book because my moral compass and patience was being tested diligently by Jerico. I literally wanted to strangle him!!!! I could easily stare longingly into his beautiful jade-green eyes with his jet black hair and his smooth-as-silk voice, but I still wanted to strangle the MF'er. He was so blinded by his rage and disgust that he wasn't seeing 'the bigger picture' with the repercussions of his actions and that was really setting an awful taste in my mouth. His bitterness was biting ME.

But like I said earlier, I should never second guess the journey Sawyer Bennett is going to take me on because, without fail, she leads me down a forgiving road through a love story so compelling that I have no other options but to get on board and fall in love. I loved seeing Jerico brought to his knees with everything Trista brought out of him. He ended up being the softest, yet dirtiest talking alpha ever, and his confidence made him that much more alluring. I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but you'll understand it once you read it. I love a confident man, but I love a man that knows his weakness and bows down and gives into it eventually. I loved seeing that side to Jerico. Loved it. I feel like SB did an amazing job redeeming Jerico for all that happened, but gave him the lesson he needed to learn.

Holy Shite: THIS WAS HOT. With this book, we met an amazingly STRONG woman with so much determination and willpower, I was taken aback. She wasn't your typical weak heroine, and she was a breath of fresh air. I enjoyed reading her and loved her character. Her strength in her convictions, her compassionate demeanor, and her ability to let go and explore a whole new sexual appetite made her a well rounded character with a naughty side to delve into. She was so amenable, but curious. Seductive but innocent. I really enjoyed discovering this side of her, and the fact that her secret playful side was aching to show herself provided some super sinfully sexy times. And lucky us, Kynan just so happened to make an appearance with these two. Who is Kynan? Remember Bridger from the first series?? I think he is going to be 'that' book we wait for. I know I am overly excited to read his story now. Hahaha!

I'm glad I trusted my time and heart to Sawyer Bennett again, because she did me good. This truly was a very hot and sexy book, and it showed the capability of forgiveness and the strength of one woman's love that she can provide to her man. This series is going to be a fun ride down a slippery slope....pun intended. I can't wait for more. Wicked Wish is the next book in this series. You can add it to your GOODREADS account or PREORDER it for an August 11th release. I am definitely going to be following this series.

"I work really hard to maintain a cool reputation here, and you come and give me a hard-on in about ten seconds. You're ruining my rep, babe."
