Jorinda Pearce thought she did everything right – graduated from college, married her long-time sweetheart, established a career. But what does she have to show for it now? A degree she doesn’t use, a job she hates, and an ex-husband that broke her heart.
Looking for a long overdue adventure, Jorie takes a walk on the wild side and attends a masquerade event at The Wicked Horse Vegas. It’s exactly the escape she’s looking for, and even better, she can explore anonymously. Drawn to the man masked in black leather with the body of a god, Jorie finds the greatest pleasures of her life at the hands of a stranger.
Walsh Brooks is the most sought after man in The Wicked Horse. Sex is nothing but a game to him and he’s the type that will always leave at the end of the night without looking back. Unfortunately for Walsh, there’s no way he can walk away from the mysterious green-eyed beauty behind the mask of sapphire feathers, because he knows exactly who she is.
Jorie is his best friend’s little sister and there’s not another woman in the world that’s more off limits.

A Connection That Just Can't Be Denied
*I voluntarily read an advance reader copy of this book*
Sawyer Bennett truly knows how to bring the heat! Holy moly was this book scorching hot! Wicked Wish is book 2 in the Wicked Horse Vegas series, but can be read as a stand alone.
Best friend's little sister is a favorite trope of mine and this story did not disappoint! Walsh and Jorie were neighbors growing up and in many ways, she is the little sister he never had. Best friends with her brother, Micah, and 8 years her senior, Walsh has always suppressed what he felt to be inappropriate feelings for Jorie. Years later, when their paths cross again in the most unexpected and delicious way, one thing is clear, the connection they share is still just as intense and incredible. Be prepared for your kindle to melt or spontaneously combust, because these 2 together are nuclear hot!
I loved the push and pull between these characters and the truths they faced on their journey. Jorie is pushing her boundaries and discovering who she really is. Walsh is also realizing that perhaps his no strings, no commitment bachelor life isn't as fulfilling as he once believed. There is some good angst and drama when Jorie's ex resurfaces and Walsh puts his friendship with Micah to the test, but what makes it so powerful is how relatable their situations are. I can't wait for more from this series and definitely enjoyed Walsh and Jorie's story.
A must read!!!
Warning-you will need a cold shower after reading this sexy, steamy read.
Best friends little sister has always been one of my favorite tropes, and this story might just top them all. I loved how Walsh and Jorie were “reunited” in this book. Definitely put a twist in it, and it brought them together. I had a love/hate relationship with Micah. He pulled through in the end though, knowing the right thing to do. Some of these scenes are the sexiest I’ve read, and will leaving you feeling tingly in all the right places (yes, those ones) This is definitely a must read, and the perfect addition to the Wicked Horse series!
What happened to my fave author???
Hated it. Absolutely hated it. And it breaks my heart to say so considering this was a favorite author of mine. Gone is the witty banter and teasing relationships once spilling from the pages; I couldn't put her previous books down. This was filled with empty words attempting to disguise the pressure or desire to crank out books. So very very sad. Her heart wasnt in this book. But when she gets her groove back im all in.
