BLURB

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.

 


EXCERPT

 

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.

 


 


TIJUANA’S REVIEW

 

Holy Hotness!! Sawyer Bennett knows how to do erotica folks! This series is smoking hot, but also has fantastic storylines.

I’m extremely impressed and can’t wait for more stories in this series.

Wicked Wish is a sexy take on the brother’s best friend trope. Walsh and Jorie have a known each other for many years. Walsh and her brother Micah are closer than best friends and consider themselves brothers. Because of that fact, Micah is firmly against his best friend and baby sister dating, but the chemistry between Jorie and Walsh is undeniable.

What I Loved:

The trope and storyline are fantastic. I love the element of forbidden and secret romances. It always feels a little naughty. Jorie and Walsh take that to another level since they aren’t even aware they’re having sex until after the fact!! Want to know how that happens? READ THE BOOK! LOL

The characters are fantastic. I adore both main characters. Although Jorie is self-deprecating and unsure of herself she grows a lot over the course of the novel. Her confidence grows and she becomes more and more assertive. Walsh doesn’t lack and self-assurance. He’s cocky, confident, and larger than life. He’s the perfect alpha-male for our heroine. These two know how to play one another and it was a real treat watching them come together. So much fun and off the charts hot.

The writing is great. You can’t go wrong with a book in this series. If you’re looking for erotica with a great plot and story, look no farther. This is the book for you. I recommend it.

 


CORINA’S REVIEW

 

Holy WOW – I loved this book SO MUCH!!!!

 

WOW!! I’m still speechless.

This book!!! It was SEXY, EMOTIONAL, BEAUTIFUL and HOT!!!

I love Sawyer Bennett WICKED series – truly love it. Book 1 Wicked Favor was already fabulous BUT Wicked Wish was even BETTER!!!

I LOVED this book!! Truly and unconditionally. 

I devoured it in one sitting and didn’t go to sleep until I was done, which was after midnight, and I’m still thinking about it the day after. What can I say, this one was a WINNER!!!!

Even though it was fabulous sexy and hot, the love story between Jorie and Walsh was what made me fall in love with this book. I was blown away by all the feelings. It was supposed to be just fun, no-string attached sexy fun. But their chemistry and attraction was off the charts hot, and when you add history that bound them in a profound and deeply manner – all bets were off.

I LOVED Walsh. He was so sure that a one-woman life was not happening for him. Secretly he was chuckling at Jerico’s obsession with his wife. And he was assured that this would never happen to him – NEVER!! It was a pleasure seeing him fall and succumb to his love for Jorie. My heart went all warm and gooey all over him.

I ADORED Jorie. She knew what she wanted and went for it. She needed someone to take her mind of her ex-husband and return the confidence she clearly lost while she was married. Finding Jerico was just a bonus and the cherry on top.

By now, I don’t even read blurbs anymore when it comes to Sawyer Bennett. I go with the flow, because honestly what difference does it make – it’s a WICKED novel. And Wicked Wish was so much MORE than I could have hoped for.

I didn’t think it was possible, but this series is getting better and better with each book. Sawyer Bennett has found the secret to writing sizzling hot and sexy novels, that are deeply romantic and touching at the same time. This series has been wickedly awesome and a MUST read for everyone that likes a little sizzle with their hot.

BRAVO!!!
