by Sawyer Bennett
Rand Bishop's dreams of Olympic gold were shattered years ago but he's left that all behind, settling into a new career and lifestyle that would make any man jealous. While he may not be competitively racing down the ski slopes anymore, he's just as happy getting his rocks off as a Fantasy Maker for The Silo.

He's good at what he does.
Damn good.


Rand Bishop's dreams of Olympic gold were shattered years ago but he's left that all behind, settling into a new career and lifestyle that would make any man jealous. While he may not be competitively racing down the ski slopes anymore, he's just as happy getting his rocks off as a Fantasy Maker for The Silo.

He's good at what he does.
Damn good.

But while life couldn't be better for Rand, it seems to be falling apart for Catherine Lyons Vaughn, the dark haired, brown-eyed beauty that has captivated an entire sex club.

Having spent years degrading herself on her husband's whim and now left destitute after his death, Catherine has hit rock bottom. With nothing but her body to peddle, Catherine is merely trying to figure out how to survive in a harsh, cruel world. Lucky for her, Rand has taken her under his tattooed wing, and he's determined to give her a safe life where she can be the woman she was always meant to be.

Now all Catherine has to do is believe she deserves the chance.

Sawyer Bennett writes a great series filled with sexy alpha men and strong women. The stories are captivating, the characters loveable, and they always leave you wanting more. Personally I can't wait for Brother's story...hurry up Sawyer;)

4 Slap and tickle stars It’s well established that this Wicked Horse series is about a cowboy filled sex club, The Silo, and Logan McKay is engaged as a fantasy maker there. The part he eagerly plays ensures members get the maximum enjoyment when in the club, and whether that be watching, taking part, multiple handed, Logan is always fair game. That is until an ethereal beauty is bought in by her partner, and is being banded around as a virginal treat, particularly for the highest bidder. Auralie Foster finds herself in Wyoming with a man she owes. She’s under duress and feels faraway from her path of normality. What I loved about this story was the insane connection these two had prior to any real knowledge of each other. Circumstances found them both in troubled situations, albeit very different. What Sawyer is great at is portraying one hell of a commanding dirty talker, and Logan does not disappoint. As the story intensifies, you understand a little more why Logan might be frequenting The Silo on a regular basis. His backstory, and his general feeling of unworthiness. Whilst these two characters battle their demons, we are entertained with a fleshly, fervid liaison with absolutely no holds barred. Wicked :D I'm super excited for Bridger's story, and he's up next!

It's no secret Ms. Bennett has to be my favorite author its just something about her work that I am able to sit down and not get up until the last page and I LOVE IT. We’re back at the Wicked Horse for a third go and it makes me want more. While I was so hoping I would get Bridger’s story all is forgiven because Rand is so adorable in a hot way. Could it be that previously while I did not give Rand a second thought when he first came on the scene just may be my favorite. He could definitely be upgrade to a book boyfriend, I;m still letting it all soak in.Not only is he a fantasy maker, but athletic and sweet and vulnerable and I could just go on. Shortly after the death of her extremely wealthy husband Cat finds herself broke and living out of her car. Much like Rand I don’t believe l ever gave Cat a second thought when she would participate in the Silo I’m not sure why. Cat has had a tough break starting with her childhood and throughout her marriage, her mother was neglectful and her husband was a vile man. The night Rand invited Cat back to his place ( not for any kinky reason) when he found her sleeping in her car I did not expect the turn things took. The relationship between Cat and Rand didn’t feel rushed or false. Much like the real world it was complicated and had many layers to get to get through. Of course there were obstacles at times that included themselves, but Wicked Need would not be the passionate drama that it was if all of those things were missing. After reading the epilogue I’m convinced I may hand to sit on my hands a while longer for Bridger’s story, but that’s ok I’m sure it’ll be worth the wait.

This may have just been my favorite installment of the Wicked Horse series. Rand and and Catherine are simply explosive in Wicked Need. I will admit that Catherine's story broke my heart, but she is one tough cookie and reading her story was inspiring and a pleasure. Rand on the other hand is just all kinds of hunky, sexy, sweet masculine fun and good heavens a man of women's dreams! This book falls in line with its predecessors in terms of the kink and heat level of the sex. These character do NOT mess around with their sex. Each time is different and even more steamy than the last as the feelings Catherine and Rand feel escalate. There are equal moments where you'll need a fan and when you'll need a tissue. It's an emotional fun house to be quite frank, but it affected me and that's when I know it's a wonderufl book. I will absolutely be looking forward to more in this series if thy're planned, or just more form this author in general because she knows how to write a darn good, well-written, fantastic book. A must read and in my top books of the year! Each book is a standalone so you can read in whichever order, but they all need to be devoured. You won't regret it! Happy Reading! *ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

(3.75 stars) I love this series but I can't lie when I say the very first thing I did was jump to.....the epilogue to see if Bridger's book was next Then I got down to business with Rand and Cat. Cat is left penniless after her hubby dies and Rand takes her in. Even though they've spent time together at The Silo and he's attracted to her, he wants to show her what true friendship is. But that only lasts for so long ;) I love this series and really enjoyed their story. Such a freshness to them as characters because they could be the only two I can think of that are open and honest with each other. But still there was something lacking, something I missed. Can't pinpoint it. Maybe a bit of angst. Maybe a bit more focus on Rand. IDK. Regardless, it was still another hit for this series.

I had loved the previous book, Wicked Lust, and it was a given I was going to read WICKED NEED, while waiting for Bridger’s, of course! We had met both Cat and Rand before, albeit mostly in sexual situations at The Silo, a sex club. WICKED NEED picks up precisely where Wicked Lust left off, however it can easily be read as a standalone. Cat is now widowed and has been left penniless by her late husband – or is her husband the reason she is destitute? Rand, who knew her from The Silo, sees her sleeping in her car, and asks her to come home with him. Rand has a “White Knight” complex – he cannot help himself from rescuing damsels in distress – and he doesn’t apologise for the way he is. Rand is a particularly delicious character: a real gentleman, really sweet and considerate. Poor Cat has made too many bad choices in her sad life, but she slowly understands that she can make changes and, with Rand’s help, she begins to “woman up”. I love how Cat takes it one step at a time: nothing is rushed, and it was a pleasure to watch her become more assertive. Cat and Rand are both physically attracted to each other, but they also understand each other, and Rand is willing to give her all the space she needs, even if she doesn’t choose him. He honestly wants her to get her life back, and that was so nice for a change: to see a man who is sure of himself, confident, and not push the poor thing. Cat is not pathetic, far from it, but she is young and for the first time, she is allowed to do what she wants and hope for a better future as well. Even given that the environment is the same, that is characters from The Silo and their mates, the tone WICKED NEED is a world away from Wicked Lust. WICKED NEED is written from Rand and Cat’s points of views, and it is gentler and not as sexually wild, but definitely not tame! It just reflects Cat and Rand’s personalities perfectly. I also marvel at Ms. Bennett exemplary use of language, as the more I read, the more I found how differently Rand and Cat express themselves, again as compared to Cain and Sloane. In a way, WICKED NEED reads a bit as a suspense, at least as far as I’m concerned, in following Cat’s personal growth and trying to find answers to unanswered questions. There were some exquisitely painful passages where Cat looks back on her life and the choices she made, and every woman should be so lucky as to find herself a Rand Bishop. The story unfolds as I wished it, and this definitely does not mean the author took the easy way out, but that she let her characters deal with their issues; it was simply perfect. And what a beautiful and emotional ending! Sawyer Bennett hasn’t failed to impress me yet: WICKED NEED is another superb book by this very talented author. Now on to the next book in this fantastic series! I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

WOW!!! Absolutely didn't see this one coming!!! I love that each one of the Wicked books is better than the last. The story of Rand and Cat is sweet, poignant, and VERY HOT!!! We first met Catherine Vaughn in Wicked Fall. And we saw more of her in Wicked Lust. Maybe thought we got to know her a little better there, even though she was very much a peripheral character in each of those stories. But as it turns out, we knew NOTHING about Catherine, nor did the people at The Silo. Cat’s story totally broke my heart and pissed me off. This story has some major twists that are going to shock the readers. Rand Bishop, Fantasy Maker at The Silo. Anyone who has read the first two books in this series probably has a bit of a crush on Rand. I know I did. He’s just so darn HOT!!! But there is so much more to this character than we could have imagined. And, IMHO, that just makes him even hotter. And oh so sweet. This story has everything that makes a great read. Hot sex, angst, danger, intrigue. Definitely a must read!!!!

BOOK REVIEW: Wicked Need BOOK SERIES: The Wicked Horse Book 3 AUTHOR: Sawyer Bennett GENRE: Contemporary Romance, Adult, Erotica, Ménage PUBLICATION DATE: April 19, 2016 CLIFF HANGER: No 5 Wicked Stars!!!!!!!! SYNOPSIS: Rand Bishop’s dreams of Olympic gold were shattered years ago but he’s left that all behind, settling into a new career and lifestyle that would make any man jealous. While he may not be competitively racing down the ski slopes anymore, he’s just as happy getting his rocks off as a Fantasy Maker for The Silo. He’s good at what he does. Damn good. But while life couldn’t be better for Rand, it seems to be falling apart for Catherine Lyons Vaughn, the dark haired, brown-eyed beauty that has captivated an entire sex club (the Silo). Having spent years degrading herself on her husband’s whim and now left destitute after his death, Catherine has hit rock bottom. With nothing but her body to peddle, Catherine is merely trying to figure out how to survive in a harsh, cruel world. Lucky for her, Rand has taken her under his tattooed wing, and he’s determined to give her a safe life where she can be the woman she was always meant to be. Now all Catherine has to do is believe she deserves the chance. WARNING: Not suitable for ages 18 and under. A significant source of bad language, sexy times (ménage and M/M), and BDSM club. Great book, but not for everyone! MY REVIEW: This is my favorite book of this The Wicked Horse series! Rand and Catherine had chemistry in the Silo, but its explosive outside of the Silo. Rand has a bit of a white knight – rescue the damsel syndrome, or so his friends say. Catherine has had a very tough life and no one knew this. They had no idea the trials and tribulations she has been through, both in her childhood and her marriage to a much older rich man. Catherine needs help after the death of her husband, as she was left with only her car, her clothing and her personal belongings and the jewelry her husband gave her. Her husband had promised to make sure she was provided for after his death, but Catherine was left destitute and devastated. She was not sad her awful husband was dead, but that she was back to being alone and without anything. No home, no money and no support system. Rand offers her a place to stay, as well as his support and friendship that quickly turns into more. Rand helps Catherine through her issues she has with her nasty husband’s will, his sons and her self-worth. I adore Rand! He fought for Catherine and for their relationship. He was willing to do anything and go anywhere for her. He even agreed to a private ménage with her and Logan. This was not a hardship for Rand, but he didn’t want to share Catherine, and she wanted to see Logan and Rand together. This was not done at the Silo it was in the privacy of Rand’s home, as again he didn’t want to share the experience with anyone but Logan and Catherine. So if you have issues with M/M then this book is not for you. This book deals less with the Silo and more with the intimacy of the characters. I loved this book! Sawyer Bennett you get FIVE wicked stars from me! ARC kindly provided by the publisher via Netgalley for an honest review.
AboutThatStory More than 1 year ago
This was awesome! Super hot (of course!), loved the story line and characters. My favorite of the series so far! This was really such an excellent story. Yes, it was super-off-the-charts-scorching-hot but more than that, it was really entertaining, so incredible sweet, had a bit of drama, and a lot of emotion. After getting glimpses of Cat in the first two stories I was excited to learn more about her. She was not at all what I expected. There is definitely more to Cat than meets the eye and I loved her story. She is such a survivor and so caring but doesn't see herself how others do. Loved her journey as she figured it all out. Rand wasn't what I expected either. From that very first scene of them connecting you could tell he was just a genuinely good guy. So sweet and selfless… and sexy! It was wonderful how he was there for Cat. What they shared was really incredible. Nice connections with Bridger, I really enjoyed his parts in the story. I can't wait for this strong, sexy man of few words to get his own book. It was fun seeing Woolf and Callie too. Loved Callie and Sloan interacting with Cat, that was highly to entertaining. And Logan. There was a nice bit of him in here and I am thrilled that his story is next. The writing was great. It had a really good pace and build. I thought there was a nice balance of the sexy times with the emotional ones. Good drama and tension throughout. I got choked up several times. Spectacular ending! Sexy fun! Excellent read! Complimentary copy received for honest review.

First, let me say, I LOVE THIS SERIES!!! Sawyer Bennett has a wonderful talent in writing these super steamy stories but is also able to back it up with a really great story line. I wasn't really sure where she was going to go with this story so it was a fun surprise while reading. I thought the story was well written. It had a very interesting story line with well developed characters. Catherine, that poor girl! She had went through so much but was still able to hold her head up high and Rand admired her for that. The menage scene was one of the HOTTEST scenes I have read in a long time!!! If you are looking for a steamy read with a great story line, I highly recommend this book and this whole series! Wicked Need wasn't my favorite book in the series but it was still fantastic! My heart still belongs to Cain in Wicked Lust!

Great Series! This is a great book; this is the third book in The Wicked Horse series by Sawyer Bennett. Catherine has spent years degrading herself on her husband’s whim at the sex club. When her husband dies he leaves her destitute, she has no place to go except to sleep in her car. Rand Bishop works at the secret sex club and when he finds Catherine asleep in her car he offers her to stay at his house. The more time they spend together they share their lives with each other. If you are looking for a spicy hot read then you need to read this book! I am looking for more books by this great author. A Review copy was provided to me in exchange for a fair and honest review. The free book held no determination on my personal review.

5 Star Review Wicked Need is the third book in the Wicked Horse Series and its Cat Vaughn and Rand Bishop's story. I was so looking forward to this book because I wanted to see how Cat's story would pan out, is she the player who likes multiple partners at The Silo or is she living her life the way others want her to. Cat is sleeping in her car after her billionaire husband passed away and the stepson tells her she is written out of the will. Rand has played with Cat in the past at The Silo so he offers her a place to sleep not thinking she would open up and pour her heart out to him. I'm not saying anymore about the story but what I will say is this a book that's full of surprises, emotion and its hot. Sawyer Bennett has stepped up another level if that's possible this isn't just about hot sex at The Silo its a love story. The sex scenes are written so well I needed a fan and the love story is beautifully written as always the characters gel and are loveable.

Don’t ever judge a book by its cover. However, that’s what most people would do when observing Catherine Lyons Vaughn. Beautiful. Privileged. Kept. But do we ever give a thought to why someone chooses the life they lead. Most likely not. “I can almost see her identity disappearing right before my eyes. “ If you read any of the previous installments, you’ve been introduced to this character. From the outside, that’s all she seems. Vapid, young lady who is the sexual plaything of an older man. From the start of this story, Cat finds herself cast outside with no resources. What does she need? A white knight. Enter Rand Bishop. Not since Wyatt Banks from With a Twist (Last Call #4) has Sawyer Bennett wrote a character guaranteed to get your panties in a knot just anxious to be saved. “I think I’d remember something like this…so possessive and animalistic. Necessary. That’s what it feels like..absolutely needful to him.” Okay, we interrupt this insightful review for a moment: HOLY HELL SAWYER BENNETT CAN YOUR WRITING NOT GET ANY HOTTER? Now that’s out of the way. Cat and Rand are the perfect friends to more story you can easily get lost in. Both characters appear genuine and someone you can see yourself being friends with. Their love story isn’t one of control or who has the upper hand in the relationship. Each one wants the best possible outcome for the issues laid out before them because they honestly like each other first. Not saying that friends to lovers is the only thing this novel is about. Ms. Bennett brings us back to the Silo and all the awesome I-read-it-but-don’t-admit-it scenes that every erotic romance lover dreams. If you are familiar with the series, you get time with characters you fell in love with and time to learn more about those who we haven’t got to know as well…sigh Bridger. Again, Sawyer Bennett provides the reader with a highly entertaining read. This series continues to get better and hotter. Don’t worry if you haven’t read the others. Her story writing always provides enough to give the new reader a standalone. But after you’ve read this you’ll want to one click the rest. All others who are familiar with her work, she does not disappoint. 5 out 5 panty melting stars.

We start in The Silo but this story really does not take place there. We met Catherine in previous installments of this series and we know she likes to play, or so we have been led to believe. Actually her husband has forced her to. Now her husband is dead and left her homeless, again we are led to believe, and Rand comes to her rescue. Rand is a fantasy maker at The Silo and he has a "White Knight" syndrome which comes out in full force but he is determined to not let that be the basis for helping Cat. This book is WONDERFUL! These characters are made for each other. They both bring so much to each other that is missing in the other's life it was a pleasure to watch them grow close. It was especially gratifying to watch Cat blossom and realize she is worth the love Rand has to give. I cannot wait for the next installment in this series!!!! **Received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review**

This is by far my favorite series from Sawyer Bennett! Although it wasn't quite as naughty as Wicked Lust, this book still had plenty of wicked things to keep me entertained. This is Rand and Cat's story. Rand has been around since the first book, but you get a brief introduction to the mysterious Cat at the end of Wicked Lust. Cat's husband has recently passed away and she unexpectedly finds herself in a lonely and vulnerable position. Rand steps in to help, but they quickly form a friendship, an emotional bond and find a strong chemistry outside of The Silo. This book had my heart beating wildly for all the right reasons. So good!

I think every woman needs a man like Rand Bishop in their lives. Rand works part-time at The Silo helping to deliver fantasies. He is a retired professional skier and leads a very laid back life. Catherine "Cat" Vaughn has been a member for a while and would normally come in with her much older, very rich husband while he just watched her play. Now that Cat's husband is dead, Rand finds out that she has been left with nothing, and no place to live. Since Rand has always felt a connection to Cat, he decides to help her out and offers up his place for her to crash until she can get on her feet again. As Rand and Cat spend more time together they realize that many things that they thought were true about each other, were in reality, not true. Cat had a very bad childhood and has always thought very poorly of herself. Rand realizes what a great person she truly is and things quickly develop between the two of them. What chemistry these two have...HOT! Like off the charts hot! I loved how this laid back guy quickly turns into a one-woman man! I enjoyed how all of our favorites were back helping Cat with problems from her past. And then there's Bridger! Every book in this series makes you fall in love with him even more. Overall this book was a great story, with great characters. Great addition to this series!

Well I thought I was in love with Cain.....I was wrong.....Rand is my man!!!!! I mean I can't even.....this one scene (obvi can't say anything cuz it will ruin it, but OMG.......it's like super major totes Fing HOT) like you won't be disappointed at all. OHHH ok now that i stopped day dreaming about Rand.....let's move on to Cat. Cat is a tough chick who is still trying to figure out who she is. Life has not been kind to her and Rand being the white knight he is just had to sweep her off her feet. Cat was pretty much in fight or flight mood when Rand decided to lay it all out on the line......loved this book for so many reasons and I know you will to.

Wicked Need is the third book in the The Wicked Horse series but can be read as a standalone. I have not read the first two books, only the book descriptions for all three. Since I started out with book 3, I only got a small glimpse into the wicked things Cat and Rand did at the Silo in the first two books and I was surprised with how little the famous Silo was in this book. This story starts off with Cat's dire circumstance and Rand immediately comes to her rescue and blooms into a very sweet relationship. Rand was sweet, caring and not the total playboy I was expecting to find. Cat, despite everything she went through with her deceased husband was also a very likeable character. She was down to earth, humble and very sweet. There is very minimal ow drama and one ménage scene and honestly, I was expecting more just from the book descriptions. I don't think that is a bad or a good thing, just that my impressions were a little off in what I expected in this story. I very much enjoyed book 3 and I will definately be going back and reading book 1 and 2. ARC received via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.

5 star Review Wicked Need (The Wicked Horse #3) by Sawyer Bennett This is book 3 in the exciting Wicked Horse series and this book was just as fantastic as the first two books in the series. This book focuses on Rand Bishop and Catherine (Cat) Lyons Vaughn. Rand is a fantasy maker at The Silo where he works. This is where he meets Cat, a stunningly beautiful and uninhibited woman who is lusted over by those at the club, including Rand. After her husband’s death, Cat finds herself destitute with nowhere to turn, that’s where Rand comes in and decides he needs to protect and help Cat. As with previous books in the series, Wicked Need was an emotional rollercoaster whilst being downright sexy and dirty, in the best possible way at the same time. I actually think this is my favourite series of Sawyer Bennetts which is saying something since I have not read a book I didn’t love from her. Rand oozes sex appeal, dominance and control; a real alpha male, one I would most certainly love to meet. Cat has no idea what she is going to do but she knows she will not sell herself. She has always been known at The Silo as the woman, up for multiple partners and up for anything and everything. But is that really what Cat wants? Ms. Bennett writes with a depth of character that at times comes right out of no-where and knocks your socks off. The layers of emotions she peels back can at times be heart wrenching shocking at surprising. I loved this book. The heat and emotions are intense and don’t be surprised if you get burnt as you read. The sex is absolutely scorching. I love kink and there was certainly kink to this book. There were some extremely stimulating and panty melting moments reading this book. I loved this book from start to finish. This book was as wonderfully well written, as all the other Sawyer Bennett books I have read. She brings The Wicked Horse and The Silo to life for me and I want to be a member. I received this book in exchange for an honest review through the publisher and Netgalley. I cannot wait for the next book in the series.
