Rachel Hart and Bodie Wright are nothing more than teammates. As mercenaries for hire with the elite Jameson Group, they have each other’s backs in the most dangerous of circumstances. But after a mission gone deadly wrong, Rachel does something she’s never done before. She crosses the professional line and takes comfort in Bodie’s arms.
One night of passion turns their lives upside down with a pregnancy neither of them expected, and one that Rachel was too terrified to ever want. Bodie, however, is a family man through and through, and he’s determined to raise their child alone if necessary.
The only common thread Rachel and Bodie have is their membership at The Wicked Horse, a sex club that lets them both fulfill their dirtiest fantasies with each other. As they become more intimately entwined, the strong, steady man with a heart of gold makes Rachel question everything she ever thought she knew about herself. Their wicked nights together make them so much more than teammates and Rachel is about to discover the choices she thought were the most difficult are actually the easiest ones to make.
This is the fourth book in Sawyer Bennett’s amazing Wicked Horse Vegas series and it’s another triumph. While it is different to the other books in this series, and it’s not easy to compare, I think this may be my favorite one yet.
I love that this is a bridge book to a new series and I am so excited for it! I hope I can contain myself until it releases in 2019. I was wondering why we hadn’t gotten a book for Kynan earlier on, and now I know why! I hope the first book is either about him or Cage as they are my favorite of the secondary characters from this book.
Anyway, onto Wicked Choice. I loved everything about it. I loved the character development. ADORED Bodie. I mean, my God, what a man. I especially loved the modern taken on the pregnancy situation and it was great to delve into both perspectives. Bodie was willing to sacrifice a job he enjoyed for his child and that just made my heart swoon and my ovaries melt. Seriously, could that man get any hotter?! And I had sympathy for Rachel. She should be allowed to make that choice without anyone castigating her for it, but her anguish was real.
I loved the backdrop of the Jameson Group and the missions they were sent on. While it didn’t occupy a huge part of the book, I thought the mix was perfect.
The romance was really well written, and, with all the books in this series, Sawyer manages to achieve complexity in her characterization and substance in her plot, so it’s not just about all the sexy times, which is something I really appreciate. I know when I dive into one of her books that I’m going to get a decent story with realistic characters as well as all the scorching hot chemistry.
There isn’t a single thing I would fault about this book. Loved it, and I can’t wait for the next instalment, and the new spin-off series.
In summary, Wicked Choice is a sexy, sweet romance that ticked all the boxes. An absolutely superb read, and one I’m happy to recommend.
Thank you very much to the author and her assistant for providing an ARC of this book which I am voluntarily reviewing.
