Looking to experience all the debauchery she’s heard about from her best friend and business partner, Dane, she requests one thing of him—take her to The Wicked Horse.

The request seems simple. One friend helping another in her time of need. But now that they’ve crossed the threshold, things aren’t as easy as they once seemed.

As Dane’s envy blooms, he wonders if he made the right decision when he agreed to show Avril his wicked world.

I love the Wicked Horse series but have only gotten half way through the original series.  This is the first one I’ve read in the Las Vegas spin off and it’s number three.  So I was a bit hesitant in reading it as I wasn’t sure if I needed to read the first two.  Good news it is a stand alone!

Dane, Avril and Andrew have been a trio since college.  They did everything together including starting their own company.  When Avril is cheated on and dumped however she decides it’s time to open her horizons a bit more.  So when Dane invites Andrew to The Wicked Horse with him she decides to go too.  Dane isn’t too happy about that but she falls in love with it and continues to show up.  Things heat up when she ends up in a threesome with Dane and another club member.  Then the dynamic changes again when Andrew shows up at the club one night and spots Avril and Dane together.  When Andrew realizes how the other two feel about each other he bows out quickly and quietly.  But how much can Dane change?  Can he get over his past or will he lose Avril forever?  Can Avril be happy without the commitment or is she okay with just a sex relationship?  How does Andrew end up fitting into their trio?  Can these friendships withstand the outcomes?
As I said before I have read at least half of the original series and I loved it.  I do have the rest all ready to go on my kindle just haven’t gotten to them yet.  I hadn’t realized this spin-off Las Vegas series was already three books in and I can’t wait to go back and read the other two books.  I fell in love with these characters just as much as I did the original characters.  I love the plot of the book but I was a bit thrown by the Dane, Avril and Andrew threesome relationship.  It was kind of over before it even got started and I feel like that little part could be left out.  But on the other hand without Andrew pulling out of the relationship Dane and Avril wouldn’t have come to realize how they feel about one another.  I have a love/hate relationship with that part I guess lol.  The flow and pace were excellent as well.
I have read several of Sawyer Bennett’s books, outside of the Wicked Horse series, and enjoyed them as well.  She is has quickly made her way onto my favorite/go to author list.  I love the tone of her books and her writing style.  I enjoy seeing what new kind of chaos she can invoke in her stories.  If you have note read these books then you really should!
