4.5 Stars

Those that truly know August Greenfield, 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.

August loves his life. Or at least he's pretty happy being an ex cop, now working for Jameson Security. And visiting the Wicked Horse most nights.
Ten years ago he thought his life would be different. He was about to leave for college with the love of his life - his highschool sweetheart Tracey.
But then one day she and her dad were just gone.
And now? Now Leighton is standing in front of his door at two in the night begging for help.
And of course he'll help her - but on his terms ...

That was a great 7th book in the Vegas series. Some Wicked Horse, a bit Jameson Security and a lot of family excitement.
I loved reading it. It was verrry erotic and exciting and heartbreaking and dangerous.
But also so very sweet and second-chancey.

A couple of things... The name August?! Ugh. So not sexy. I always had an 90 year old guy in my head when I read that name. LOL.
And then their age. They're just 28 and they kind of appear ten years older. With all they've done and been through.

But the story was great. I adored all the people and it was super erotic! Phew!

And Sawyer has finally not used all the AS's she could get her hands on. Whaaat? OK, I still counted at least nine, but still - better than 49. ☺
(You know the ones, right? She couldn't pick him up from school, as she had to get her nails done.)
Proud of you Sawyer!

WICKED SECRET was a verry erotic & exciting second-chance love story! ☺ Run to your nearest amazon for your own August - this one is MINE!! 


As with every Sawyer book ... I had some problems with the writing... 
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 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 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!

ARC received from author for an honest review

Woo hoo, back to Wicked Horse.

Well really, it was 50% Wicked Horse, 50% Jameson Security to me.

August and Leighton's story is full of second chances, sexy times and lots of family times.  Oh, there is one character who is the definite scene stealer in this tale,

There is a bit of drama, bit of mafianess, and plenty of August trying to get Leighton to come around.  There is some way hot sexy times between them, to be expected with a sex club series, however I liked that this was not just the sex club.  In fact, I think it was around 50% before it really came into the story.  I liked that it was a vehicle for our lovelies to become closer, not the be all and end all of their relationship.

One thing though, Ms Bennett - can we please, please get a book for Declan?
