He never wanted to be anyone’s hero

Asher Knight is tall, dark, and wickedly handsome. He’s also irrevocably broken. Submerging himself in long hours at work by day and debauchery at The Wicked Horse by night, Asher uses work and play to numb the pain and guilt he feels over the death of his wife. What isn’t satisfied with one will surely be resolved by the other. At least that’s how he’s survived the last few years.

Hannah Madigan works three jobs just to make ends meet. Beat down by life, not to mention a cheating husband who was unfairly awarded custody of their daughter, Hannah is determined to make a better life for herself and get her kid back. But with pressures mounting and one costly mistake that leaves her owing Asher a huge debt, Hannah is as close as she’s ever come to throwing in the towel.

She’s given a golden opportunity

Determined to stay the course by any means necessary, Hannah accepts an unusual proposal from Asher. He’ll give her a job. She’ll give him her body. Sounds easy, right? Until she realizes she needs his help more than she’s willing to admit. And he finds her adding to his life in ways he never wanted to accept.

This wicked knight may just learn that sometimes saving someone else means allowing yourself to be saved in return. 

Hannah is working three jobs to be able to pay child support for her daughter. Her sweet little girl who is living with her ex, because said ex is golfing buddies with the judge at the custody hearing! Hannah needs money for a better lawyer, she needs her girl back.
But she also needs 75 thousand dollars for the vase she just killed while cleaning some guys' house!!!
But he offers her a deal. One night with him in his sex club and her debt is paid!

Asher doesn't do feelings or relationships. He frequents the Wicked Horse a few times a week and that's it. He's been widowed for five years and he's not at all over what happened with is wife.
But he's mega attracted to Hannah! And the more time he spends with her, the more he thinks about a different, not so lonley future as the one he was planning on having ....


Well, this was sexy and sweet!

I really liked those two together. Hannah needs Asher to fight her stupid ex and Asher needs Hannah to get over the guilt about his wife. And to not end up an old guy living with 12 cats!☺
It was really adorable to watch him fall for Hannah and Hope.

A very sweet and very sexy and romantic story! I really enjoyed reading it.

It starts a tiny bit too insta for my tastes. Hannah breaks the vase and two seconds later Asher offers her the sex club idea? But pfff, why not?

I had some problems with the writing...as with every Sawyer book.
It's Sawyer's and my THING ☺ It's only me who has those problems with her writing. So please don't be worried or just scroll down and don't read the following...
  I have a HUGE AS problem! ☺ You know the AS's I'm talking about? The AS that could/should be exchanged for a SINCE or a BECAUSE or just a comma/dot/pause/whatever.☺ It's a British and or a legal thing (if it's a thing at all!) and it doesn't have anything to do in an American book by an American author. I would be ok with it if one (British) character would use it, but everyone uses it! I really don't want to insult Sawyer. I love her books, but  ... please stop doing it. But pfff who am I to tell her what to do, so just forget I said anything! It doesn't stop her books from being great!

WICKED WEDDING was a very sweet and sexy romance! Adorable!! 

ARC received for an honest review

Sigh, it is sad to come to the end of another Sawyer Bennett series, however she has sent us out with a bang.

I have been waiting for Asher's story and I was not disappointed.

Hannah and Asher's story was a bit too insta-f*ck for me, but it didn't really bother me as their story developed.

I liked that there wasn't really any drama, no OTT angst, and that they both acted like adults instead of petulant children chucking a hissy fit.

I loved getting to go back to the Wicked Horse, catching up with some of the people we have met in earlier books.

There is a little scene stealer that will absolutely run away with your heart too (and no, it isn't Asher!)

I like that Hannah isn't a doormat.  She sticks up for herself and her daughter, she gives as good as she gets, and makes Asher fight for her.

Cute, sweet, full of tender moments, Wicked Knight was a wonderful read.  It has made me want to go back to Vegas again - not to the sex club!

I can't wait to see what Ms Bennett brings us next.
