Reed by Sawyer Bennett
Series: Caroline Cold Fury Hockey, book 10
Genre: contemporary, sports romance
Publisher: Loveswept
Publication Date: February 6, 2018
Rating: ★★★★✰


Reed is the top player for the Cold Fury. He has everything from fame to girls at his disposal. He believes that he’ll live it up during off season but the girls who are typically his type aren’t doing anything for him.

The one who has his attention is his next door neighbour, Joise. She challenges him at every point and he finds that too irresistible. He wants her more than any other girl but he respects her too much to treat her like his one night stands.

He has one chance to make Josie see how seriously he wants her in his life not only as a fuck buddy but as a partner. If he screws it up he might lose his friend too.

I adored this story. It was short, sweet, funny and so damn sexy. I think Josie is one of my favourite Sawyer Bennett heroines. She was so strong and hilarious, I can totally see myself as her bff if she was real. I loved the fact that she knew how to give it back good to Reed and his manwhore ways. I just really freaking adore this girl.

Reed oh my sweet summer child!!! He might have been drowning in barbies but the man knew what Josie was worth. I was actually in awe of how fast he realized his feelings for her and just DAMN HE IS SO PURE AND GOOD. He deserves all the happiness in the World.

I missed these Cold Fury boys and it was so amazing to catch up a little on their lives. I am super pumped for Marek’s story. It is going to be one hell of a ride.

4 Stars!

Synopsis:
Hockey season may be over, but in New York Times bestselling author Sawyer Bennett’s new novel, a Carolina Cold Fury heartbreaker is heating things up off the ice and eager to score with the girl next door.

No one skates like Reed Olson. In the off-season, no one plays like him either. After back-to-back championships, Reed craves a different kind of action. Good thing there’s no shortage of women ready for a summer fling with a sports star. Reed has a specific type—blond, busty, not too bright—and a little black book full of options. But when his bed starts rocking, it’s his unexpectedly sexy neighbor who comes knocking. And the brainy beauty is impossible to ignore.

Josie Ives desperately needs something her celebrity neighbor obviously doesn’t: sleep. His headboard banging against the wall is keeping her up at night—not to mention inspiring some very naughty dreams. Reed is everything she imagined: a little too good-looking, with a body that puts Greek gods to shame. But he’s also funny and charming—a tempting combination. Josie’s the opposite of his type, yet the chemistry between them is undeniable. Their friendship certainly has its benefits, and it’s heating up to be so much more.

Sawyer Bennett’s New York Times bestselling Carolina Cold Fury series can be read together or separately.

Wicked Choice by Sawyer Bennett
Series: The Wicked Horse Vegas, book 4
Genre: contemporary romance
Publisher: self published
Publication Date: January 2, 2018
Rating: ★★★★✰


Rachel and Bodie had nothing to do with each other except being teammates and colleagues. They had no business spending a hot night together and then pining over it. But that is how it was supposed to be, just one night.

Not all plans play out as they were supposed to and Bodie and Rachel are in for the biggest surprise of their life.

GAWD!! This story was so so hot. It was also utterly unexpected and refreshing. I LOVED LOVED LOVED how Sawyer Bennett challenged the gender norms and dynamics and man she handled it with subtlety and perfection.

Rachel is a force to be reckon with. I admire her strength and character for being able to put herself and her goals first. Her character was such a positive inspiration and I just really love her, okay?

Bodie, my sweet kinky man!! He was so good and pure and filthy he made my heart sing. He is absolutely the ideal book boyfriend and I want him to be real so bad.

I CANNOT get enough of the Wicked Horse universe and would seriously read a hundred books if Sawyer decided to write them.

Synopsis:
Rachel Hart and Bodie Wright are nothing more than teammates. As mercenaries for hire with the elite Jameson Group, they have each other’s backs in the most dangerous of circumstances. But after a mission gone deadly wrong, Rachel does something she’s never done before. She crosses the professional line and takes comfort in Bodie’s arms.

One night of passion turns their lives upside down with a pregnancy neither of them expected, and one that Rachel was too terrified to ever want. Bodie, however, is a family man through and through, and he’s determined to raise their child alone if necessary.

The only common thread Rachel and Bodie have is their membership at The Wicked Horse, a sex club that lets them both fulfill their dirtiest fantasies with each other. As they become more intimately entwined, the strong, steady man with a heart of gold makes Rachel question everything she ever thought she knew about herself. Their wicked nights together make them so much more than teammates and Rachel is about to discover the choices she thought were the most difficult are actually the easiest ones to make.

Review Tour – WICKED WISH by Sawyer Bennett

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.

HOLY MOTHER OF ALL GODS!!!!!!!

Jorinda was the straight laced good girl and it got her nothing but heartache. So she decided to revamp her life starting with paying a visit to The Wicked Horse Club. Noticed by a masked God, she embarks on the most intense sexual experience of her life. She is hooked and wants more of everything. It might be the high of being in a sex club but she knows it was all for the masked God.

Walsh is a God when it comes to the high end life of The Wicked Horse. He is sought after by many but refuses to be bogged down with attachment. Then he sees the green eyed beauty with a Sapphire feathered mask and his World is turned upside down. This beauty he covets is the one woman he has been staying away from all his life but after a taste of her and now he can’t let her go.

I am so madly in love with Walsh that I can’t even think straight. He is the most alpha, arrogant and sexy guy in the Wicked Horse universe. There I said it. Yeah he is not perfect but GOD GOD the way he is with Jorie gives me the best shivers. He is also such a wonderful guy who over thinks things and just loves to complicated shit but it’s okay because I love him too much. Did I say he is THE BEST ALPHA?

Jorie is my homie, y’all. She tells you that it is perfectly okay to have doubts about yourself. I mean, who doesn’t? But you need to find a way to overcome those hiccups and love yourself foremost. She was such an incredibly strong character and I love that she doesn’t take anyone’s BS.

I don’t think I’ll ever tire of saying this but Sawyer Bennett is a master at writing dirty stuff. She blows my mind with the kind of details and scenarios that are described in the Wicked Horse Universe. I’ll LOVE this series FOREVER.

5 Stars!

Squaring my shoulders, I march into The Royale and head straight for the concierge desk. I haven’t been in this casino before. Hell, I haven’t been in hardly any of them. Sure, I’d only grown up about forty-five minutes away, but gambling and all-you-can-eat buffets held no interest to me.

From Micah bragging about his best friend over the years, I knew Walsh orchestrated the purchase of the land, then pulled together financing with two other partners to build this casino. It’s one of the most popular on the strip, boasting five-star dining, old-world elegance, and superior customer service. Again, all this from Micah, but honestly… I’m so proud of Walsh, too. We may have lost touch over the years, but I’ll never forget all the ways in which he acted as a big brother to me.

Ick.

Okay… that’s gross. Thinking of Walsh like a brother.

I scrub my mind clean of that thought and demand myself never to do that again.

Rather, I’ll never forget all the ways in which Walsh provided me friendship and support in my formative years.

Yes… much better.

“Can I help you?” a man behind the concierge desk asks with a genuine and friendly smile. Not snooty as I would expect in a fancy hotel, and I guess that goes to the superior customer service The Royale strives for.

“Yes… hi,” I say as I nervously tuck my hair behind my ears on both sides. “I need to see Mr. Brooks. How do I go about getting access to his apartment?”

Micah told me some time ago that Walsh lives here.

The concierge never loses his friendly smile, but a single eyebrow arches high at my temerity.

“Oh, gosh,” I stammer. “That came out stalkerish. Mr. Brooks… I mean, Walsh… and I are longtime friends. He used to babysit me.”

“Your name?” the man asks as he pulls up something on his computer.

“Jorie Pearce.”

After a moment of scanning, he looks up at me. “Your name isn’t on the approved list.”

“Well, he’s not exactly expecting me.”

“I’m sorry, Miss Pearce,” he says with true regret in his voice. “But our policy is strict. No one gets up to the private penthouse without their name on the list.”

I lean on the desk with one elbow and lower my voice. “Just out of curiosity… are there any women on that list?”

The eyebrow shoots up again.

“No, wait,” I say hastily as I hold my palms toward him in a silent plea to not process my last request either mentally or on the computer. “That’s totally stalkerish, and I didn’t mean that.”

“Miss Pearce,” the concierge says, now with a hint of annoyance. “Perhaps you’d like to leave a message? I can get it up to Mr. Brooks today and he can call you.”

“No, I need to see him now,” I tell him firmly. “And I swear it’s not to cook a rabbit in a pot on his stove. Can you please just call up to his apartment?”

“That’s not our policy—”

“Look,” I snap as I lean across the desk slightly. “I’m a lifelong friend of Walsh’s. My brother is his best friend. We lost touch for a few years, but we ran into each other last night. I really need to talk to him about something that happened last night, and I’m not leaving this hotel until you call up to his apartment.”

The eyebrow doesn’t arch but it does draw inward to meet its match on the other side as he considers what I just said.

“I swear to you,” and here I pause to look at his name tag, “Bentley. Please just call him. He won’t be mad.”

With a sigh, he relents and picks up the phone receiver, punching in a five-digit number. After a pause, he says, “Mr. Brooks… I’m very sorry to disturb you, sir, but there’s a Miss Jorie Pearce here to see you. She says she’s a longtime friend.”

I watch as Bentley listens, but I can’t gauge what’s being said as his face remains blank. Finally, he says, “Very good, sir.”

I take this to mean I’ll be getting an escort to the penthouse suite, but Bentley replaces the receiver and says, “I’m sorry, Miss Pearce. But Mr. Walsh told me to tell you he’s busy and can’t receive you right now.”

My eyes narrow at Bentley. “I don’t believe you. Call back and let me talk to him.”

“I assure you, I just talked to him and that’s what he said.”

“Call him back,” I order as I point to the phone.

“I can’t,” he says almost with a wail. “If I do, he’ll fire me.”

Okay, that hits home. I don’t want to get anyone in trouble, so I say, “Fine. Give me just a moment.”

I take a few steps away from the concierge desk and pull my iPhone out. I shoot off a quick text to Micah. What’s Walsh’s phone number?

I wait a few moments, but I know Micah is awake in San Francisco at this hour. His phone is always on, and he never ignores a text from me.

He responds with the number before I can even start to tap my foot with impatience, adding on, Why?

I hate the lie, but I write back, Came to Vegas for the day. Thought I’d see if he could meet up for lunch. Haven’t seen him in years.

Cool, he writes back. Tell him I said, “what’s up, douche?”

I roll my eyes as I text back, Real mature. Love ya. Later.

After I save the number to my contacts, I open a new text to Walsh. Let me up to see you or I’m going straight back to The Wicked Horse to satisfy some further curiosities I have.

I hit send and then walk back to the concierge desk. I merely lean one elbow on it and watch Bentley with a silent smile. The phone rings about ten seconds after that.

Bentley’s eyes fly to mine as he listens, and then says, “Yes, sir. Right away.”

When he replaces the receiver, he says, “I’m to show you to the penthouse elevator.”

“Thank you, Bentley,” I say brightly.
