In Wicked Bond by Sawyer Bennett, the fifth book in the Wicked Horse series, we finally get to peel back the layers that make up Bridger and his mysterious persona

Wicked Bond

Wicked Bond Review

Since the beginning of this series, I have wanted to get to the bottom of Bridger Payne.  He’s been the elusive character, only showing his softer side when needed.  

Bridger has been stoic and staid throughout the first four books, and I couldn’t wait to peel back the layers and see what makes him tick.  

Wicked Bond does such an amazing job of that—plus we get to meet Maggie, who I absolutely fell in love with.

Wicked Bond Summary

Bridger is the owner of The Wicked Horse bar and The Silo, a secret sex club.  I knew his past was going to be dark and twisty, and believe me, it lived up to my expectations.  

He is obsessive about order in his surroundings and in his sex life.  He uses sex to find fleeting euphoria in his mind while his soul is suffering from years of abuse.  It has made him into the man he is, but he wants more out of life than just the club.

Maggie is the perfect counterpoint to Bridger.  She is also a victim of abuse and feels abandoned and alone.  No one has cared for her or loved her for so long, but she isn’t a damsel in distress.  

She stays strong and does everything she can to protect herself and the ones she loves, even though her means are limited.

Suspenseful Western Romance 

Seeing Bridger and Maggie open up to one another and forge a connection was such a fulfilling part of the story.  I loved seeing them heal and the intensity of their relationship.  

There is also an element of suspense that I enjoyed.  In the end, love prevails and the bonds (pardon the pun) created throughout this series were fantastic.  I enjoyed each and every book of this series, but Bennett definitely saved the best for last!

Thank you for the advanced copy of WICKED BOND by Sawyer Bennett.  All opinions are my own.
