Release Blitz - Wicked Wish




WICKED WISH
The Wicked Horse Vegas – Book 2
By Sawyer Bennett
Release Day August 11



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.

EXCERPT:

Want another drink?” I ask Micah as he lounges on my couch and takes the final swallow of his scotch. He flew in about an hour ago, and we’re waiting for Jorie to arrive to go out to dinner tonight. My nerves are on edge. I definitely want another drink.

Nah, man,” Micah says as he pushes up from the couch and moves to take his glass back into the kitchen that opens straight from the living room. “Tonight’s not about getting drunk. It’s about hanging out with my two favorite people in the world.”

I smile at him and nod, my stomach clenched.

But just so you know,” he says with a laugh. “Jorie’s my first favorite, you’re my second.”

As it should be,” I reply, and hope that sounds casual enough.

Micah rinses his glass out and sets it on the counter. As he walks back into the living room, he says, “And besides… I figure tomorrow night, you and I are going to hit the town, right?”

You know it,” I say as I push up from the chair, head straight to the wet bar, and replenish my vodka. There is not enough alcohol in the world to get me through this weekend. I take a healthy slug as soon as I cap the bottle.

Dying to go to The Wicked Horse,” Micah says with excitement in his voice. “Want to meet Jerico, too. He and I have been emailing about testing out some more of my designs in his club. Plus, you and me, dude… we haven’t had a woman together in a long time. Your stories about the stocks… we’ve got to hit that, man.”

My shoulders tighten and my gut rolls with nausea. How in the fuck I am going to weasel out of this is beyond me, but I’ve got to figure something out. I don’t want another fucking woman other than Jorie.

Walsh?” Micah says in question, and I turn to look at him. “We good with going there tomorrow night?”

Damn straight we are,” I say with a smile. “A night of debauchery for the both of us.”

Fuck, fuck, fuck.

Just then, the elevator doors give a slight hiss as they open, and Jorie is standing there. She looks fucking amazing, wearing a dress done in large black-and-white zebra stripes that’s loosely belted around her waist and comes down to her knees. She’s got on a pair of sexy-as-shit taupe heels to go with it and my mouth waters as I take in what they do to her legs. Hair in that sleek, angled bob that hangs halfway in between her jaw and shoulders, and that thick crop of bangs straight across her eyebrows make her green eyes brighter than ever.

I swallow hard and try to appear casual.

Her eyes go immediately to Micah, and she gives a squeal of excitement. He rushes to her, picks her up, and swings her around. The skirt of her dresses rises a bit in the back, and I look away guiltily.

God, I missed you, squirt,” Micah says with a choked voice. My guilt intensifies over the naked display of love and affection he has for his sister.

Jorie’s voice quavers with equal love. “I missed you, too.”

She hugs him hard and looks over his shoulder at me. Her eyes are wary and nervous.

When Micah releases her, I step up and casually say, “Got a hug for me?”

It’s a shameless move to touch her, but not something that would raise Micah’s eyebrows. I’ve hugged Jorie a million times over our lives together growing up.

It’s good to see you again,” she says to me as she walks into a very brotherly hug. I make the mistake of inhaling her scent, and I’m hit with a jolt of lust for her.

After we quickly release each other, she steps back and surveys my apartment as if it’s her first time. She told Micah we met for breakfast one day, but he sure as shit doesn’t know I’ve fucked her on almost every piece of furniture in this apartment. He’ll never know she went to her knees right where we’re standing in front of the elevator and swallowed every drop of cum I gave her.

Fuck, fuck, fuck.

I have an overwhelming urge to fake a stomachache, a migraine, a goddamn stroke for all I care at this moment, and beg off from this entire weekend.

Instead, I put a smile on my face and tell them, “Come on. We’ve got prime seats in Moulineaux tonight. I’ve not eaten there yet, but heard it’s amazing.”

Jorie smiles back at me before turning to hook her arm through Micah’s. She leans over and puts her head on his arm as she’s too short to reach his shoulder. They both stroll into the elevator.

This night can’t get over with fast enough for me.

Wicked Wish (The Wicked Horse Vegas Book... Wicked Wish (The Wicked Horse Vegas Book 2) - Sawyer Bennett

This story is one of my favorite tropes....best friend's little sister!  

Jorinda "Jorie" Pearce was basically raised by her older brother, Micah, since her mother died during childbirth and her father worked all the time.  When her father died when she was 17, Micah put his life on hold until she was of age.  All her life Micah's best friend, Walsh Brooks, was always around and it was natural that Jorie always had a crush on him.  

Fast forward....Jorie has been married for 8 years to Vince and living in LA.  Vince just told Jorie that he wants a divorce and he wants her to move out...the reason...she sucks in bed.  Feeling dejected, Jorie heads to her hometown, Henderson, NV, where her best friend, Elena lives to crash at her place.  After telling Elena the whole story, Elena suggests they head to Las Vegas and go to the Wicked Horse, Las Vegas where Jorie can get some of her self esteem back.  They are having a masquerade event and it would be perfect...she wouldn't have to reveal her self and she can test out the waters.  When they enter and look around Jorie is drawn to this guy who is setting up some unique type of machine.  He asks for any woman interesting and chooses Jorie.

Walsh Brooks has been in a rut lately but this woman with the peacock mask has him beyond excited.  Things get hot and exciting VERY quickly.  All too soon, something happens and Walsh quickly realizes this woman is actually Jorie, Micah's little sister....Why does she have to be the best woman he's ever been with?????!!!!!

Now the fun begins.  Jorie didn't realize it was Walsh, but she has just lived out a life long fantasy by being with Walsh.  Walsh is freaking out because he just broke the cardinal law....leave your best friend's sister alone!  Problem is, neither of them want to stop!

These two were so hot and so fun together.  Even though they both only wanted this to be a purely physical relationship, feelings quickly started coming into play.  Just when things were looking perfect...all hell breaks loose when Micah finds out.  It took some time for all hurt parties to get past their issues before Jorie and Walsh could have their happy ending but it was worth it when then finally did.

If you are looking for a fun, hot read...pick this up!  Such a great series!

Love it!!
Widow's Wicked Wish (Idyllwild Book 2) - Lynne Barron

Widow's Wicked Wish by Lynne Barron is a fantastic historical romance.  Ms Barron has delivered a book that is well written and a smooth read.  The characters are absolutely perfect for this story.  Olivia is feisty and at the same time serene, Jack is just plain lovable and the secondary characters round out the cast nicely.  There is plenty of drama, humor and sizzle to keep the reader engaged.  I enjoyed Widow's Wicked Wish and look forward to reading more from Lynne Barron in the future.  Widow's Wicked Wish is book 2 of the Idyllwild Series but can be read as a standalone.  This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger. 

 

I received a copy of this book from a third party for review purposes.

Review: Widow's Wicked Wish (Idyllwild #2) by Lynne Barron
Widow's Wicked Wish (Idyllwild Book 2) - Lynne Barron

This is the second installment in the Idyllwild series but as far as I could tell it could definitely be read as a standalone.

 

Olivia is a woman that although sheltered and outwardly quiet, has always had a buried salacious nature. She was raised to be proper lady, a proper daughter, then later in life, a proper wife, so she never had a chance to set her true nature free. But as she stumbles upon Jack, the man that once inspired feelings she didn’t know existed, she makes the decision to become the woman she always wanted to be: free and wicked.  

 

 

 

“…I’m not a woman you want to trifle with today.”

“No,”… “You are a woman to be reckoned with.”

 

 

 

Ah! Olivia and Jack exploded with blazing, molten passion! I’ve read other steamy historical stories but this book went beyond that. I wouldn’t even call it erotic (although by definition that’s what it is) because the way their relationship was handled was too personal and deep. She started off as a woman with a curious mind and he of course was only too happy to oblige.

I liked that as the relationship grew, she still sounded a bit naïve yet strong enough to go for what she wanted. When they fought the way they reconciled their differences made the fight worth it. And the things they BOTH said and/or did had me laughing, gasping, or wanting to slap them both upside the head for their idiotic or naughty behavior. At any rate, it was a pleasure to see how their relationship evolved and reached their HEA.

 

Now, about the plot excluding the romance. There wasn’t necessarily anything wrong with it but there were times it felt a bit unbelievable given the times it was set. And I don’t mean the sex scenes, because as I’ve said, I didn’t mind those at all but for example, the conversations some of the ladies were having with male company present had me questioning the historical accuracy. Then again the story is not your typical clean romance so I guess their conversations could be expected to be more risqué?

 

 

Some SPOILERS AHEAD:

Also, there were other arcs that I thought were incomplete. Olivia’s older child was called “precocious” but I never understood what the point was of her being that way. Olivia’s mother makes an appearance again (she’s first introduced in the first book) and offers a side of her that I can only refer to as unhinged. Olivia does worry about her but after that we don’t know more of her or her health. I can only hope we find out more about them in the next book. SPOILERS over.

 

All in all, it was a great read and it has reaffirmed Lynn Barron as an autobuy author for me. 4 stars.

Marriage of Convenience Trope Done Right
His Wicked Wish - Olivia Drake

“I was an upstart actress who sold herself to you at auction. Now I’m going into trade. I’m afraid I won’t ever be a proper society wife.”
Nathan’s mouth curved in a wicked smile that put his gorgeous dimples on display. “Then we shall be improper together.”

What do you get when you pair together a virginal actress on a mission with the black sheep of a noble family who has his own vendetta? You get one highly enjoyable historical romance that had more than its fair share of desire and drama.

 

His Wicked Wish was actually a lot of fun in addition to the passion and the family issues both of our protagonists faced. Maddy and Nate’s relationship was what really stood out to me, with their quick, witty bantering and the romance that neither of them wanted to admit to.
