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.
Wicked Knight is the fifth book in the Wicked Horse Vegas series, and this series is still going strong. More than erotic romance, it is about dealing with the aftermath of a tough divorce as well. And also trusting another man to do right, when the one who was supposed to be everything only thought of himself.
I really enjoyed Wicked Knight, it was definitely hot, and had a little Cinderella / Pretty Woman feel to it. Mostly because Hannah was ready to do whatever it took to make sure her daughter would be with her, and that she would be safe being there. In the beginning, I didn’t really enjoy Asher all that much, but that changed quickly. He was quirky, and he really wanted to find love. He didn’t think he deserved it, though, and when I learned why that was, I could understand him very well.
Hannah had not only been burned by love, she had been scorched by it! Her ex husband was the worst man ever! And he managed to get full custody of their daughter – plus alimony, even if he earned much more money than Hannah – just to get back at Hannah for leaving him. Never mind the fact that he was cheating on her, he felt like their marriage falling apart was all about her.
Wicked Knight did feature several visits to The Wicked Horse, and man, those scenes were hot. I needed an electric fan to be able to continue reading, and my kindle was fuming at times 😉 Bennett always manages to bring more to her erotic romance stories than the hotness, though. I loved both the character development and the overall story.
Writing style :
Wicked Knight is written in first person point of view, present tense, with many dialogues. And there are chapters from both Asher’s and Hannah’s perspectives.
Her fretful gaze slides to me. She bites down on her lower lip, fear filling her eyes. Not sure what it says, but it’s sexy as hell to me. I want to fuck her more than I want to chastise her.
I bet you will. Those damn words have been playing in my head all day, despite the fact I keep telling myself I’m not interested in his proposition. Even though I am very much attracted to Asher Knight.
About Sawyer Bennett:

A reformed trial lawyer from North Carolina, Sawyer uses real life experience to create relatable, sexy stories that appeal to a wide array of readers. From new adult to erotic contemporary romance, Sawyer writes something for just about everyone.

She believes in the good of others, and that a bad day can be cured with a great work-out, cake, or even better, both.
