Wicked Secret

(Wicked Horse Vegas, Book #8)

Sawyer Bennett

Release Date: May 26, 2020

 

 

 

Synopsis:

 

Those that truly know August Greenfi eld, will tell you that I live my life to the fullest. Work hard as part of the team at Jameson Force Security but play just as hard at The Wicked Horse Vegas. I have no regrets about my life. Well, maybe just one. Leighton Hale was my first love and the woman I wanted to spend my life with, but one day she was just gone. Vanished without a trace. Even my extensive contacts as part of the team at Jameson left me empty - handed in my search for answers. My single remorse is never being able to find out what happened to her, because no matter how difficult the truth may be, it can’t be as bad as never knowing at all. Ten years later, a knock on my front door brings me face - to - face with the woman I thought I’d never see again and nothing in my life could have prepared me for the secrets she holds.

Wicked Secret (Wicked Horse Vegas, #7)Wicked Secret by Sawyer Bennett
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

This is #8, in the Wicked Horse Vegas series. This book can be read as a standalone novel. For reader understanding, and to avoid spoilers, I recommend reading this series in order.

August is happy being a hedonist. He enjoys women, and sex and is not ashamed of his hobbies. Then a surprise blast from the past blows him away with a visit.

Leighton is someone who knew August in his past. They were supposed to have a future that was ripped away. Can he and Jameson Force Security help when it is lives on the line?

This story had so much to it. It was nice to connect the series that I love to read. I was happy with the references to the other books. The characters felt disconnected to me somehow. I had a hard time placing the story with the people I was reading about. It is still a good read, but not the kind I am used to from this author.

POP STAR by Eden Finley

Release Date: April 8, 2020

Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance

AMAZON PURCHASE LINK


SYNOPSIS

Harley

What happens when the most successful boy band on the planet breaks up?

How about twenty thousand fans screaming my name.

But the price of fame comes with an increased risk to my safety.

I’ve been avoiding the dreaded B word for as long as I can, but after a close call with a rambunctious fan, I can’t do it anymore.

It’s time to give in.

I need to hire a full-time bodyguard.

And when he shows up, he not only screams badass, he’s another B word I try to stay away from: boyfriend material.


Brix

Protecting people is not what my company usually does, but the boss knows I need money, and the pop star is offering an insane amount to live with him and make sure no more crazy fans break into his house.

I’m doing it for the money and nothing else.

He may be the prettiest man I’ve ever seen, and I may feel sorry for the celebrity life he’s been forced into since he was a teenager, but that doesn’t mean anything.

Just because he fascinates me, that doesn’t mean I like him.

It doesn’t.

Professionalism. I’m gonna live it. Breathe it. Enforce it … Mostly.

Pop Star (Famous #1)Pop Star by Eden Finley
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Harley has had quite the scare. An overzealous fan who threatens him in his own home. He has never wanted or needed a bodyguard. Times are about to change.

Brix just wants to do his job, get paid, and go home. He never wanted to get feelings for someone he was charged with protecting. That was before he was charmed by a musician he has never heard of.

I absolutely loved these characters. I cannot wait for the next installment in this series, and this one isn't even out yet. Every single one of the characters in this book brought laughter or something fun. I was completely impressed with the fast pace of the story as well. Lots of heat, and so may surprises for the reader. I only wish I could give it more than the 5/5 Kitty's Paws UP!

EXCERPT:
 

“What’s a word that rhymes with regret?” I ask on the way home.

 

Brix doesn’t respond.

 

Forget. It’s not exact but close enough.” I scribble that down.

 

Brix doesn’t take his eyes off the road. “I can’t tell if you’re being passive aggressive or mocking.” 

 

Neither can I, if I’m being honest.

 

I’m not a dumbass. Hooking up with my bodyguard was stupid. Last night was a mistake, and we shouldn’t have done it. I knew the minute he shut down that I had to make a clean break.

 

I’ve done the forbidden relationship thing before. It’s not as romantic as people think. 

 

So, yeah, pretending it didn’t happen is what’s best. Even if it’s not what I want.

It’s better to end it now before I catch those dreaded feelings.

 

Maybe I can convince my brain that last night was a wicked fantasy instead of a memory, and I can use it for when I’m alone with my hand. Because something that explosive can’t be forgotten. It would be, like, blasphemous to the gods of gay sex.

 

“Harley?”

 

I turn my head toward him. “Huh?”

 

“Are you really okay with what happened, or do you want me to call Trav and tell him I can’t work for you anymore?”

 

I frown. “You want to quit? Over a mishap?”

 

“Tackling you on my first day was a mishap. This … this was crossing basic lines that no employer and employee should ever cross.”

 

“You shouldn’t quit. Like you said, you need this job. I won’t mess that up for you.”

 

“Thank you.”

 

 I pretend to write something down. “Hey, what rhymes with fired?”

 

His gaze flicks my direction, and I grin. 

 

“At least we can joke about it already,” he mumbles.

 

“I like joking with you. As sad as this may sound, you’re not just my bodyguard. I kind of feel like … we’re friends.”

 

“Well, you did blow me. I guess that makes us friends.”

 

“Oh, so that’s what I’ve been doing wrong all these years. No wonder I have no friends. Blowjobs equal friendship. Got it. You should be a life coach instead of a professional badass.”

 

Brix side-eyes me. “Why don’t you have any friends? I thought you Hollywood types all had huge entourages.”

 

“Oh, I have an entourage, but I pay them to be with me, so it feels weird to call them friends. It’s not like I see them outside of them working for me.”

 

“So why is it different with me?”

 

“Blowjob. Duh.”

 

Brix laughs. “No, seriously.”

 

I shrug. “Maybe it’s because I’m with you twenty-four hours a day. The only time you get to escape is on your day off. We’re friends by proximity.”

 

“You know how to make a guy feel special.”

 

I sigh. “I don’t think I’ve had any real friends since I became famous.”

 

Brix’s tone changes and becomes more guarded. “What about that Jay guy?” 

 

“Maybe he counted at first. We were friends for a while.”

 

“And then you fell in love? Is he the one who left you on tour?”

 

I don’t want to get into this with Brix, or anyone for that matter, but that doesn’t stop the words from coming out. “Yeah. It’s a long messed-up story. In the end, he went and found, in his words, true love.”

 

“Ouch.”

 

“Eh. I’m not saying he didn’t have a right to move on. No one likes being shoved in a closet. But I guess … I don’t know. It seemed so easy and quick for him to find someone else. I have to believe our relationship wasn’t as meaningful as I thought it was.”

 

“Other people’s experiences don’t diminish your own. He may not have seen your relationship as anything more, but you did. Therefore, it matters. What you had matters.”

 

Damn him. 

 

I hate that he sees through that stuff. “Maybe I don’t want it to matter. You don’t want to waste the love of your life title on a guy who’s now married to someone else.”

 

Brix snorts. “What makes you think you only get one love of your life?”

 

“Uh, the whole construct of soul mates?”

 

“Pfft.”

 

“Wow. Dignified response.”

 

“Soul mates is a bullshit notion. There are over seven billion people on the planet, and you only get one? Only one of them is your perfect match? That’s a one in seven point five billion chance of finding the love of your life.

 

“Well, when you put it like that …”

 

“Relationships break down. People change. Those who are truly in love can work at it for years and still end up apart. It doesn’t mean they weren’t in love or that they were supposed to love someone else more. It just … is what it is. Heartbreak sucks, but it’s a part of life. Putting it down to destiny or fate or any other higher deity is lazy and dismissive of the effort needed to truly make a relationship work.”

 

“That’s …”

 

“Insightful? Philosophical?”

 

Depressing.”

 

Brix bursts out laughing. “I guess it is a bit.”
