As the owner of The Wicked Horse, an elite sex club located along the Vegas Strip, Jerico Jameson never spends the night alone. Gorgeous, ripped, and totally alpha, Jerico doesn’t grant favors and will rarely give you the time of day—unless he wants you in his bed. So when the sister of his sworn enemy shows up asking for help, saying no should be easy. But when Jerico takes one look at her and sees an opportunity to help this beautiful woman while exacting revenge on her brother, he’s not about to pass that up.

Beaten and bruised, Trista Barnes is running out of options, and Jerico is her last chance to get out of the mess she’s in. She doesn’t know why Jerico despises her brother so much, but as long as he can help her, she doesn’t care. Jerico offers her safety while opening her up to a sinful world she never knew existed.

As she succumbs to Jerico’s erotic charm, Trista lets herself fall into the wicked world of guilt free pleasure with no regrets. Under his strong alpha hand, she blooms, and so does Jerico’s possessiveness. But what happens when Trista finds out she was a pawn in Jerico’s game all along, and that the price for his favor was steeper than she ever imagined – her heart.

I just wasn’t feeling it. This book really wasn’t doing it for me. I’m super sad to say that because I know that Sawyer Bennett is an amazing writer but this book is for specific sort of person. I found it to be too erotic, and somewhat lacking substance. For me there was not really a drive to continue reading other than wanting to know what happened in the end. I feel the characters were only a little interesting and the lot was mild..

So Wicked Favor follows Jerico and Trista. Trista is the sister of Jeroico’s enemy. It’s sort of weird how his enemy would still ask a favor after what he’s done, but he calls it in. So, Trista comes to him looking to use that favor and he complies. After you findd out what Trista’s brother did to Jerico it makes you want to punch his head in… be warned(sorry for the horrible words) but man he really did a number on Jerico.

Jerico is living a bachelor’s life. He has made some extremely good business decision that lead him to the boss of The Wicked Horse club in Vegas. This place is a world of its own. It’s a place to fill all desires. I thought it was weird. I guess this book needs to come with more of a warning because I was hooked by the sound of it, and disappointed by the reality.

But the story is about Trista learning to payback her debt to Jerico and on the way falling for him. I wish I had lots of good things to say about this book. But yeah, definitely not feeling this one. I do hope people give it a try if you find the synopsis interesting. Be warned, it’s erotic and there’s a decent amount of erotica in it. Some of the story line I felt was good, I just think it could have been done better.

I’m giving this book 3.5 Stars.
