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.




Fans of the previous book in the Wicked Horse series can expect much of the same in this super steamy story where decadent delights take center stage repeatedly and with sweaty abandon.  With so much sexiness happening it almost doesn't matter what the storyline is, but it's a simple and straightforward tale of lies and distrust from past pain that leads to heartbreaking angst that will require a Grand Gesture to fix.  Along the way we get to know a bit more about the sexy, kinky, and mysterious men who inhabit this debauched world which has left me dying for more as each one is more tempting than the last.

Cain's life is one of work and sex and he's quite satisfied with it the way it is...or is he?  With his scarred face Cain doesn't think of himself as sexy but his intense nature has women clamoring to have more than one night with him.  Though no woman has yet succeeded his attention has been repeatedly drawn to the sweet and wholesome-looking Sloane and all he can think about is dirtying her up as he spends more and more time with her.  It's a new feeling for him, one that scares him as he sees her becoming a more permanent fixture in his life.  A duplicitous dead wife and the large debt and emotional pain she left behind has him doubting Sloane though and jumping to conclusions that leaves him bitter and her heartbroken.  It will take the machinations of a stoic and dominate man to bring them back together, but despite all the pain their relationship has undergone they have a scorching connection where every kinky thought is indulged.  Though they don't spend much time interacting on a personal basis it's clear that they're sexually perfect for each other as he gives her every pleasure she desires in a relationship where sweet mixes perfectly with sexy. I liked Cain and his honesty in embracing his erotic desires.  He's not judgemental and not adverse to any of the pleasures surrounding him and his tight-knit group of friends.  He can be charming and is close to his family which makes him even more appealing and almost boyish despite his gruff and deadly look.

Sloane's a good girl sent on a mission full of deceits that has her finding love in the most unlikliest of places.  Due to her politician father's sordid past she wants to use her journalistic talents to fight corruption which leads her to a secret sex scandal involving another politician's daughter and a sex club in a small town.  Cain seems to be her best chance in uncovering the secrets about this scandal, but to get his attention she knows she'll have to be embrace ideas and desires she's only heard about.  Their decadent delights soon lead to an unexpected relationship and numerous scorching encounters that become more intense and erotic.  Sloane discovers true power in their play but as her heart becomes involved her mission becomes less honorable and more dangerous to her own family.  With love guiding her, the truth and sexual doubts lead to heartbreak that an unlikely savior will help make right in an ending that's uniquely romantic and sexy.  Sloane's sweet and a bit naive when it comes to sex but eager to accept the pleasures Cain introduces her to.  Though he throws her off-balance they form a deep connection that's mostly expressed sexually as not a lot of time is spent elsewhere.  She's an honest and honorable woman who just wants to do right by her family back home and the new-found family she's found at the Wild Horse which is why I rooted for her every step of the way despite her slightly duplicitous actions early on.

The flow of this story kept me engaged from the first page to the last and demonstrated yet again the talents of Ms. Bennett.  Aided by a captivating cast of characters, particularly Rand, Logan, and Bridger, readers will find themselves quickly caught up in the sensual haze she's crafted.  The sexual interludes are numerous and varied and not for the shy as there were moments that bordered on heavy bdsm and derogatory play.  It's all become a bit blase for the characters though and is what ultimately has them looking elsewhere for satisfaction and their HEAs.  This was a quick read with only a bit of angst that was full of decadence and eroticism and is the epitome of escapism.  It's not a profound or earth shattering read, but it's a sexy romp involving likable characters that called to me and have me wanting to come back for more. Though this book can be read on its own you won't want to miss a single scorching second in this kinky and entertaining series that I definitely recommend.

My rating for this is a B+/A-
