Wicked Envy by Sawyer Bennett

The best of friends.
Two men. One woman.
A sinful playground called The Wicked Horse.

Entrepreneur turned millionaire, Dane Hawthorne, has been known to get his kicks at The Wicked Horse Vegas, and he has no shortage of beautiful women waiting for a shot at him. Driven to succeed, no matter if he's in the boardroom or the bedroom, Dane never backs down from a challenge.

Avril Carrigan isn't the type of woman to take risks in her personal life but after a broken heart and too much liquid courage, Avril decides to best way to get over one man, is to get under another. Looking to experience all the debauchery she's heard about from her best friend and business partner, Dane, she requests one thing of him--take her to The Wicked Horse.

The request seems simple. One friend helping another in her time of need. But now that they've crossed the threshold, things aren't as easy as they once seemed. Not only is Dane looking at Avril in a new light, but so is their other business partner and best friend, Andrew Collings. As Dane's envy blooms, he wonders if he made the right decision when he agreed to show Avril his wicked world.

What happens when the lines of friendship are blurred and boundaries are crossed? Will their relationships survive or will jealousy tear them all apart?

About the Author

Since the release of her debut contemporary romance novel, Off Sides, in January 2013, Sawyer Bennett has released multiple books, many of which have appeared on the New York Times, USA Today and Wall Street Journal bestseller lists.

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.

Sawyer likes her Bloody Marys strong, her martinis dirty, and her heroes a combination of the two. When not bringing fictional romance to life, Sawyer is a chauffeur, stylist, chef, maid, and personal assistant to a very active daughter, as well as full-time servant to her adorably naughty dogs. 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.

Sawyer also writes general and women’s fiction under the pen name S. Bennett and sweet romance under the name Juliette Poe.

This is the third book in the Wicked Horse Vegas series and it was smoking hot, deliciously naughty and romantic; I loved it. This is Avril Carrigan, Dane Hawthorne and Andrew Collings story.  Avril and Dane are not only business partners but best friends as well. Having heard about The Wicked Horse Vegas, Avril asks Dane to take her there to help her get over a broken heart.  What is the worst that could happen? Well complications arise as Dane is now seeing Avril in a different light, but so is their other business partner and best friend, Andrew.  Can Avril, Dane and Andrew create a relationship or will insecurity and jealousy get in the way? Will three be one too many? All is not as it seems and Ms Bennett throws some twists and turns in to keep us guessing.  I really loved these characters and was intrigued as Sawyer Bennett delved into their characters.  Not only is Wicked Envy a friends to lovers story, but it also poses the question as to what happens when the line is crossed and then someone changes their mind? Will their friendship and business relationships be compromised? Hot, raunchy and sexy; Wicked Envy has it all. I was glued to the pages from start to finish and I didn’t want it to end.  I cannot wait for the next book in this series.  Congratulations Ms.Bennett you have another winner on your hands.

I am preparing to read the last book in the wicked horse vegas series and i dont want them to end. I've read nearly everything Sawyer has written and can't wait for more

Love all things Sawyer Bennett and so, while these books would not normally be my "cup of tea", I bought the three ( Wicked Favor, Wicked Envy and Wicked Wish) and thoroughly enjoyed each one... While participation in a sex club is outside my realm, Ms. Bennett handles the scenes in such a way that they seem almost normal... I would recommend these three books if you can step outside what might be considered "normal" and enjoy life on the wild side...

Wicked Envy was so good, (fanning myself). Hot, steamy, awesome, sexy, they're not enough words to describe the sexiness going on at The Wicked Horse. Must read series. Love Sawyers Bennett.

Wicked Envy By: Sawyer Bennett ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️.5 Review by Kristie K Another sensually seductive installment of the Wicked Horse Vegas series, Wicked Envy brings the heat… Holy Wow, Ms. Bennett…another compelling and sinful tale of the Wicked Horse Vegas down, what will you do next? I think this very same thing every time I finish one of these books, and she hasn’t let me down yet. Wicked Envy tells the tale of one woman, and her two best friends…who happen to be incredibly gorgeous men, with a taste for naughty. When Avril goes through a devastating breakup, she decides a change of pace and a new adventure are exactly what she needs. One life-altering trip to the Wicked Horse later, and Avril feels like a new woman, and her friends are seeing her in a whole new light. All I can really say about this book, is DAYUM! I am such a huge Sawyer Bennett/Wicked Horse fan, and it seems like every book just gets better! The storyline is unique, intriguing, and sexy as hell. The execution of the plot and storyline is flawless, and the writing incredible. Ms. Bennett weaves a fresh and tangled web with every installment, and it leaves me hungry for more. The characters are relatable, with a depth of emotion and feeling that many authors are not able to capture. I love this series, and can’t wait to see what she come up with next. Kristie K

I have loved all of the other WH books but this one wasn't written as well I didn't think so. I'm not much on MFM so I'm not sure if that is why I felt that way but it just wasn't as interesting of a story line as the previous books in this series.

This was my hardest read for any of Sawyer's books. It took me an eternity to get into. However, half way through the book, the light switched and I couldn't put it down. I'm not sure what caused the change, but it was worth sticking with.

Wowzah! This book was scorching hot! This installment of the Wicked Horse Vegas involves three best friends of 17 years, two men, Dane and Andrew and one woman, Avril. They met in college and then went into business together. They have always had a strictly platonic relationship and the dynamics between them are quite different. Dane has a protective instinct and Andrew is Avril’s emotional confidant. The friends want different things when it comes to love and relationships. Dane doesn’t want love or a relationship. He is happy with his kink and no strings hookups at the Wicked Horse. Andrew is a relationship guy and is currently out of his long term relationship with his girlfriend. Avril is just out of a nasty breakup with her boyfriend of three years that she caught cheating. Avril is feeling like she needs to tap into her sexuality because she felt she wasn’t enough and feels that’s why her boyfriend cheated. When she overhears Dane trying to convince Andrew to give The Wicked Horse a try, she jumps in on the conversation and wants in. Neither man thinks it’s a good idea for her to give it a shot, but after a long conversation they agree to go to The Wicked Horse together. Now I am not going into the dynamics of how this works or how things work out. The three of them do enter into a sexual relationship and they soon discover things about themselves and the others involved. This is not just an erotic read, it also has a very sweet love story and also some very emotional moments that had me tearing up. I really enjoyed this book and I was sad when I finished it. I just wanted more! Can three best friends find a way to work and play together? Can’t tell you! You’re going to have to read this sexy tale to find out.

Wicked Envy by Sawyer Bennett is book three in her Wicked Horse Las Vegas and Ms. Bennett turns up the heat a notch with this sexy threesome of best friends-to-lovers story. Dane, Avril and Andrew have been best friends since college and are now business partners. The closest of friends, they are always there for each other. So when Avril doesn't show up for work one day, Dane and Andrew immediately go to her home to see what's up. Devastated from her long-time boyfriend cheating on her, Avril is lucky to have the support of her best friends. On the mend from her break up, when Dane and Andrew make plans to go to the Wicked Horse and Avril wants in. Sadly, Dane is hesitant to see Avril there. Luckily, for this story, that doesn't stop Avril and Andrew from going. Soon enough these three best friends will all come together within the walls of the Wicked Horse and go where their friendship has never lead. Passions, jealousies, and love will ignite within this story as these best friends see each other in a new light. Wicked Envy becomes a tale of two men and one woman with a myriad of twists, hot, sensual encounters and complicated decisions. Overall, Wicked Envy by Sawyer Bennett is undeniably hot with characters who all just click, it made it hard to know who to root for as I wanted them both to win as all three of them connect so well as friends and lovers. (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book I received for free in exchange for my open and honest review. This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.)

There is nothing better than putting on a pair of imaginary chaps and saddling up with a new book from Sawyer Bennett's Wicked Horse Vegas series. If you thought Vegas was sinful before, nothing compares with the naughty deliciousness that Sawyer portrays at the Wicked Horse sex club! She keeps us tied up with temperatures rising and moans escaping our mouths with this tawdry threesome. Andrew, Avril, and Dane are fascinating, titillating, and irresistible in Wicked Envy! Avril Carrington is a woman with a good head on her shoulders. She is one of the executives of Caterva Bio Tech, has two amazing best friends, and the world seems to be at her fingertips. That is until her eyes are opened wide to how sexy her friends Andrew and Dane are and desire erupts between all three of them. If only the passion between them doesn't ruin their friendship..or will it? I love how practical and strong a heroine Avril is. She knows what she wants and isn't afraid to go after it whether it be a high powered position at a company or the love of a good man...or two! Andrew Collings had me falling hard for him with his easy going, fun loving personality, and his gorgeous looks. He is charming, easy on the eyes and an extremely likeable hero. I definitely felt some envy towards Avril for having this hero rock her world! Then add the mysterious, deep, and broody Dane Hawthorne with the smoldering eyes and scorching looks and a reader's heart about palpitates out of their chest! Sawyer gives us two sides from the same coin with these two...one is lighter and one is a bit on the darker side. Dane had me feeling all kinds of goosebumps with all of his delicious sexiness. Sawyer Bennett delivers another titillating read that has readers climbing back into the saddle and anxious to get naughty again with not one but two scrumptious heroes! I highly recommend Wicked Envy and the rest of the Wicked Horse and Wicked Horse Vegas series for plenty of bumpy wild rides with characters that like to get down and dirty and find love in the process. Sawyer always amazes me with her ability to pen stories in such different tones depending on which series she is writing. The Wicked Horse series is by far her most decadent and sinful series that I have read to date and I look forward to many, many more new stories to indulge in!

SINFULLY DELICIOUS!! A SEXY FRIENDS TO LOVERS, CLEVER MENAGE!! Dane, Avril, and Andrew are not just business partners of a multi-million dollar company, they have been best friends for 17 years, caring and confiding in one another. Dane have abandonment issues that have lead him to indulge in the no string attached relationships. He's strong, cocky, commanding and a member of the Wicked Horse. Andrew is the dreamer, looking for true love, and Avril isn’t the type of woman to take risks in her personal life but after catching her boyfriend cheating on her after 3 years into their relationship, she's heartbroken but ready to move on. Things are about to change this trio's life!! Wicked Envy is raw, enthralling, edgy, bold, daring, provocative and expertly developed. Perfectly-paced, wonderfully written, a well-elaborated plot and emotionally revealing. This book is not just about indulging in a ménage, pushing your limits, BDSM or Sex Clubs. Is an inspiring story about finding yourself, accepting who you are, finding happiness, true love, honesty, loyalty and friendship. The characters have a remarkably strong chemistry between them. The connection and interaction among all the characters is beautiful, sincere, and when need it be steamy hot with off-the-charts hot sexual encounters!! Author Sawyer Bennett did magnificent job at capturing and maintaining the reader's attention, throughout the entire book. She hit a home run with this sinfully delicious story!! There must be, it has to be a HEA for the one character that sacrifice himself by stepping aside so that his two best friend can finally enjoy theirs as a couple. So, I'm looking forward to it, no matter how long it takes.

Wicked Envy is book 3 in The Wicked Horse Vegas Series and just when you think it can’t get any better Sawyer Bennett gives us another sizzling read. Best friends to lovers with a difference this is about 3 best friends will crossing the line in this love triangle ruin a friendship and will 3 become a crowd when these friendships are put to the test. Dane, Avril and Andrew are not only best friends they are business partners but when Andrew is going through a dry spell and Avril is getting over a breakup she doesn’t understand why it’s ok for Dane to invite Andrew to The Wicked Horse but not her, so she takes matters into her own hands and convinces Andrew to go with her and that’s when things get very interesting. 3 people who have been through a lot together suddenly find themselves sexually attracted to each other but what happens when one of them in the triangle decides they just want to be friends. Can you still be friends after crossing that line..... This book is hot but it’s also a love story, it’s about friendships and loyalty, yes boundaries are crossed but it makes you wonder if the attraction has been there all along ad maybe the time was never right until now. These characters are easy to love you have 2 caring guys and girl who is independent and strong and once again this author has shown us another side to her writing skills. I read this book in one sitting and I can’t wait for more from The Wicked Horse Vegas because for me this series gets better with each book.

WOW this book... I think this may be my favorite of the group. Three friends, Dane, Avril and Andrew, who have known each other forever! Work together, are each others support system. Life happens and they are all in a bit of a different place and end up at The Wicked Horse one night and everything changes... They give into the temptation of taking the next step in their friendship.... and all together...Can friends who work together become lovers in their off time? Will their relationships be able to withstand the change and does it mean the same thing for all parties? Dangerous ground for sure! It is interesting to see how they develop as friends, business partners who respect each other and trust them with their lives then into lovers. Three is not always a good number, but these three seem to make know more about each other than they do themselves. There are a few twists and turns along the way as they struggle to find themselves and be comfortable with themselves. I really loved this book because of there relationships between Dane, Avril and Andrew.

Avril, Dane, and Andrew met while attending college at Berkeley and forged a fast friendship. Although they were roommates, they never crossed the line not wanting to risk their friendship. Andrew was in a relationship, Avril dated, and they teased Dane at the player he was. Fast forward several years...Dane has built a multi-million dollar biotech corporation. Avril is the COO and Andrew is head of the research department. Dane is still the player, often frequenting Wild Horse. Andrew's relationship ended. And Drew and Dane are defending Avril's honor after she finds her boyfriend in bed with another woman. They have seventeen years of friendship that's about to be tested... Dane encourages Drew to come to Wicked Horse to "get back in the swing of things", but he doesn't encourage Avril as he doesn't think she's ready for another relationship. Of course, Avril gets mad at the double standard and shows up anyway. While Drew and Avril seek no-strings fun with other people, Dane watches. One night changes everything. Dane and Drew see Avril as more than their best friend. While Drew is not willing to cross the line, Dane can't seem to stop himself. Dane and Avril cross the line, but keep it secret for awhile. When Drew decides to give Wild Horse another try, he runs into them in an intimate moment. He's a little envious, but also intrigued. So when they invite him to play, he's all in. Until.... I know I say this with EVERY Wicked novel, but Sawyer Bennett has outdone herself! This novel has all the "feels". You laugh, cry, pull for the boy Dane was but is trying to become, and commiserate with the trio. They have a solid friendship that's tested throughout the story. They have each other's backs, even when it seems nothing will ever be right again. Dane confronts his past so that he may be open for a future he never thought he'd have. I absolutely LOVED this novel! I read a gifted copy and all opinions stated are my own.

Sawyer Bennett is a super talented author who always keeps me glue to my ipad from page 1 until the end. I highly recommend this FIVE STAR read! Loved it!

My heart was broken reading this book. I love the fun loving friendship Avril, Dane and Andrew have that started back in college and has spanned almost two decades. I was curious to see how everything would play out when the three became intimately involved. Would the friendship survive? Would the business partnership survive. I was surprised when Drew pulled back from the relationship. I thought it would be because it was a threesome and that's not how he does things, but it turns out he saw so much more between Dane and Avril than even they did. Drew was not the one I would've expected to withdraw. In my mind he was the one I expected to get his heart broken and not able to keep the friendship, but that's not the way it worked out. Dane completely wrecked Avril and himself and the readers. Their friends to lovers story is a classic, but it was so heart wrenching to see all of the turmoil he was going through. Kudos to Ms. Bennett for telling a classic love story that truly tore the reader's heart out.

This is Book 3 in"The Vegas Wicked Horse" Series. The book can be read as a standalone. It is told by Dane, April and Andrew. These three characters met while in Berkley and since then they became best friends. Dane was a genius back then and when he creates his own company,Caterva BioTech he brings his two closest friends with him. Now seventeen years later something happens that changes the dynamic of their friendship. This book is hot as all the other in this series but in a way it goes deeper and the relationship between Andrew, Dane and April is wonderfully described. I really enjoyed this book and I cannot wait to read the next one in this series!

**Received ARC for a fair and honest review** Wicked Envy is the 3rd book in The Wicked Horse Vegas series. This book can be read as a standalone. I'd rate this book at 4.5 stars. Dane Hawthorne is good looking, sexy and incredibly smart, not to mention rich. Avril, Andrew/Drew and Dane met in College at UC Berkeley. Theirs was an unusual friendship but it worked. The more they got to know each other, the closer they became. Eventually moving in together. Avril never imagined hooking up with/dating Dane until things go crazy in her life and the cards seem to fall into place (can't give away what happens). But Dane has his issues and before they can be together he needs to work through them. I really enjoyed this story, I couldn't put it down, was a fast, hot, steamy, crazy read! I really enjoyed the characters, Avril and Dane had good chemistry and I really enjoyed the storyline. I'm really hoping that the author does a story for Andrew. I enjoyed his character and I would love to see how that story unfolds. Back to Avril and Dane though...If you like alpha males, with baggage and strong, sexually uninhibited women you will love this book. The only reason I gave the book 4.5 stars is because there was a little bit of dragging out of the storyline that could have been cut down and I wanted a little more about them at the end. The issues weren't earth shattering and not even enough to drop it a full star, just personally frustrates me some. Hope this helps! Happy Reading!!!
