Blog Tour + Review: Wicked Need by Sawyer Bennett


descriptionRand Bishop’s dreams of Olympic gold were shattered years ago but he’s left that all behind, settling into a new career and lifestyle that would make any man jealous. While he may not be competitively racing down the ski slopes anymore, he’s just as happy getting his rocks off as a Fantasy Maker for The Silo.

He’s good at what he does.
Damn good.

But while life couldn’t be better for Rand, it seems to be falling apart for Catherine Lyons Vaughn, the dark haired, brown-eyed beauty that has captivated an entire sex club.

Having spent years degrading herself on her husband’s whim and now left destitute after his death, Catherine has hit rock bottom. With nothing but her body to peddle, Catherine is merely trying to figure out how to survive in a harsh, cruel world. Lucky for her, Rand has taken her under his tattooed wing, and he’s determined to give her a safe life where she can be the woman she was always meant to be.

Now all Catherine has to do is believe she deserves the chance.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Wicked Need is the third book in the Wicked Horse series and Sawyer Bennett manages to give us once again a different story, one I didn't see coming.

Even if this book can be read as a stand-alone, I already knew both Rand and Cat from Wicked Lust.
Rand is what you can call a Fantasy Maker at The Silo (sex club) and Cat was somehow a client there.
To summarize how they knew each other, I'll say that Cat was a the Silo because her husband was too old to satisfy her and because he got off on seeing her with other men. And yes Rand was one of them.

When Rand sees Cat's car in the parking lot, and when he learns that Cat is homeless because her dead husband cut her out of the will, his caring self offers her a place to stay.
Of course, you can guess that things become quickly something because each other have a huge sexual appetite and they are very much attracted to each other.

This book took me by surprise because after two books I was used to evolve around the Silo and I expected things to be more heated. Don't get me wrong, they are scenes scorching hot! Sawyer Bennett goes way beyond what she usually writes and she does it quite good. Without telling you two much, there's a MMF scene - but more focus on the MM part - that was fantastic! It was something I was looking forward too from one of my fav' authors.
But the whole story is very much more focus on Rand and Cat. While this is not a bad thing, it let me with a taste of not enough.

In my opinion, the book could have been a little longer. There was a lot happening and all takes places in such a short time, it was hard for me to really connect with how they both fall in love.
Rand was such a sweetheart. He wants to help Cat getting a life back and once feelings starts to arise he also wants to be a part of his future.

I had some problems with Cat. Her life was not easy, the thing she had to do where awful but in the back of my mind I couldn't stop thinking that she chooses to stay with her husband. The worse was that she admits it too. So then why the self pity afterwards?

What I enjoyed the most is why I like reading book in series such as this one. You always get to see the previous couples. Sloane and Callie were just like I remember them. Too bad Cain wasn't there.

The epilogue left me with a big question mark. The next book will be able Logan and I'm not sure how to take what his story is going to be. I'm sure Sawyer Bennett has something specific in her sleeve but I'm keeping my judgment until I know more... because really you should all know by now that the one I really WANT is Bridger!
