Wicked Fall, Wicked Horse 1, Sawyer Bennett

 

Wicked Fall, Wicked Horse 1,  Sawyer Bennett
Review from Jeannie Zelos book reviews
Genre:  Romance, Erotica
I’ve read lots of Sawyer’s novels now and really enjoy her writing style, sexy and sensual without the Ick factor that so many erotic reads have. You know, the ones that are all sex, no story and the sex is just cringe-making. Some people can’t write sex, some can’t and fortunately Sawyer can. Anyway I was just getting into this story when I realised that Woolf is Tenn’s brother – Tenn from Shaken, not Stirred…I do like to catch up with characters like this.
Once again Sawyer gives us a real mix of characters who feel very genuine, three dimensional and that I can like. I have to like my leads, have to want them to get together or a book is a fail for me. Woolf, he’s a gem. He’s always had a yen for Callie, but thinks he’s just not good enough, with his predilection for kinky sex and her being such a sweet innocent girl. She’s been away for a few years, now after a break up she’s back, and Sweet Callie is now Grown Up Callie. When he finds her inside his new bar, the front for the private sex club, as a competitor in the Miss Wet T-short competition he sees red, and whisks her out. They soon find their sensual connection is as hot as ever. Callie felt so rejected by him years before when he turned down her virginity, thought he was embarrassed by her, so is shocked when she finds out the truth. Then she learns about his sex club and demands a visit to see what goes on. Soon they’re having some hot and heavy sex themselves, though Callie is concerned that she won’t be enough, that after sampling all the sex club has to offer she will just bore him eventually. Woolf is confused, he can’t seem to get enough of Callie, doesn’t feel good enough for her but just can’t give her up. Can they work as a couple? He just doesn’t know, he never thought he’d want a monogamous relationship, but the thought of sharing Callie is an absolute no. He knows though that if he stays with her and his connections to the club come out her political father – soon standing for re-election- will be horrified, and that the connection could do him some real damage to his political career.
I thought when I started this I’d guessed the way the book was going, where the story would lead, but once again I was wrong. Its a fun read, with some scorching and sensual scenes, with leads in their 20’s and 30’s – hurrah. Sometimes it seems romance is dominated by the under 25’s but Sawyer delivers some older leads and thanks for that Sawyer – we older people want leads we can identify with. It also means they have more in their backgrounds to flesh the story out, make it more interesting such as Callie’s failed romance and Woolf’s journey with BDSM. Bridger, his partner in the club who he’s known since university is a great character. That tattoo makes me feel there’s a real interesting story to come from him I hope. I’d really like to read more as to why he’s so anti relationships, what happened to him, what’s behind the tattoo. Its a story I’ve really enjoyed and will happily reread. It’s not my favourite of her novels but was a decent read. The thing that stopped it from being five stars was the drama at the end, it was there but soon over and I love that to be very drawn out so I can wallow…that’s just me though.
Stars: Four and a half.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
