From New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Sawyer Bennett...

Kynan McGrath has just joined The Jameson Group, a security organization handling everything from covert military operations to providing protection for high-profile celebrity clients. As second-in-command, Kynan has the authority to accept or decline any mission. But when a stunningly beautiful pop princess walks through the doors, Kynan knows he'll do anything to get closer to her.

Joslyn Meyers is on the brink of super stardom, but with fame comes a level of attention she was never prepared for. She's even less prepared for the gorgeous, tattooed, British bodyguard her mom has hired to keep her safe.

When Kynan escorts Joslyn to her hometown of Cunningham Falls for a benefit concert, it becomes clear that the threat to Joslyn's heart is more real than any physical threat to her safety. But when Hollywood comes calling, will the pop princess and the wickedly hot Brit be able to preserve their relationship? Or will the force of their differing worlds drive them apart?

Unfortunately this book took too long to get where it was going. Then to leave you hanging so you have to buy a second book.,9 yrs into the future. I rather give this a negative star for wasting my time. The worst book of of all the crossover series. This is one author I won't be returning to.

I was so excited for this Crossover Collection and Wicked Force was exactly what I was expecting, this book from Sawyer Bennett was the perfect tie-in between Wicked Horse Vegas and Big Sky and it was great to be in Cunningham Falls with characters I loved. It’s hard to write a review without spoilers and I really don’t want to ruin it for any readers so I’m just going to tell you how this intense forbidden love story made me feel. I loved the sizzling chemistry and I loved watching Kynan and Joselyn grow as they tried to fight the attraction they had for each other, I swooned and I sighed and I was so happy to see this couple get the HEA they so deserved. Another great read from this very talented author and I can’t wait to see where she takes us next.

I have read the previous books in the Wicked Horse Vegas series and Wicked Force has all the passion and fire that we have come to expect.   I have been intrigued by British Kynan since he was first mentioned in the series. Now the 26 year old alpha male has taken an assignment as a bodyguard protecting rising singer Joslyn. This book was well written and exciting to read, emotional and at times intense as Kynan McGrath and Joslyn Meyers struggle to ignore their feelings and chemistry. I really loved these characters and was intrigued as Sawyer Bennett delved into their characters. I was glued to the book from start to finish and I didn’t want it to end.  Wicked Force gives us an insight into Kynan and Joslyn’s story and I cannot wait for their story to continue in Code Name: Genesis (Jameson Force Security #1) to see how Ms. Bennett concludes their story.

Kynan has just left the Royal Marines in London and working for his father at the family car dealership when his buddy Jerico Jameson comes to London to purpose a job opportunity for him to move to the United States and help him with his new business adventure, The Jameson Group. Kynan agrees to this new job adventure that will specialize in covert military operations and security services. Kynan has the ability to deny any contract that comes forward but when Joslyn walks in he knows that he is going to take the job. Joslyn is an up and coming pop star that her mother feels needs protecting and hires Kynan to protect her. When Joslyn is determined to do a benefit concert in her home town of Cunningham Falls that is honouring her father, her mother tries to stop her from going. Joslyn and Kynan head to Cunningham Falls for the concert and realize that Joslyn's heart is in more danger than her safety. Once they return and let everyone know about their relationship, Joslyn's mom steps in and plants doubt to Joslyn about Kynan. I enjoyed that Sawyer Bennett took us back to the beginning with Kynan as he has always been the mysterious one in the background during the Wicked Horse Vegas series. I like Kynan, Joslyn and her makeup artist Michel but knew that there was something off about Joslyn's mom right from the beginning. I could tell she was living off her daughters' stardom. Wicked Force is book 4.5 in the Wicked Horse Vegas series by Sawyer Bennett and is part of the Kristen Proby Big Sky Crossover Collection which can be read as a standalone or as part of the Wicked Horse Vegas series and is written from Kynan and Joslyn’s point of view. I am not a huge fan of cliff-hangers because I hate having to wait and see what happens. I recommend this novel and give Wicked Force 4 stars.

While I am not a fan of cliffhangers, this was a fulfilling intro into a new world for me and as a part of a crossover series it did register at about 160pages or 3 hours of good reading. I was intigued to know more of Jerico Jameson's right hand man Kynan after reading about him in Wicked Favor, the first Wicked Horse Vegas story which had me immediately wanting his story. Luckily the time has come. This novella details the origins of Kynan's job with The Jameson Group and also his first relationship with rising singer Joslyn Meyers. It is a lovely appetizer before their story is released as it will unfold the rest of the way in the upcoming Jameson Force Security series book #1 Code Name: Genesis. I love an honorable man of strong character and am becoming a big fan of Sawyer Bennett for her skilled story telling of the men and women she brings to life. It is obvious the author loves weaving a story so that her time is invested and care taken to tell it well and that will keep me a reader thrilled to read each story.

So Sexy! A story of an up and coming Rising Star, who needs protection. And protection that never looked so good. A blazing connection that will come at a price for both of them. As hired protection, his hands are to protect not touch, but with a flame so hot that neither one of them can deny it. What else is there to do but get burned. A fast paced story you will not want to put down. But watch out or you might be the one that gets burned with a ending you will have to wait for. Josyln Meyer’s has led a sheltered life, and has never known love. But when this rising star meets the man of her dreams, her passion and their intense attraction are too much to deny. Kenan McGrath is second in command of Jameson Group Security Services, a hired bodyguard providing protection for high-profile celebrity clients. Kynan knows what his duties entail and what they don’t. But becoming enthralled to the point of confusion and distraction by his client, Kynan will need to hand over her protection to someone else. Will stardom be the end of their story? Will a controlling stepmother, as well as others that all want a piece of her in the greedy world of showbiz, let her decide? Or do they have plans for her whether she likes it or not. You don’t want to miss this first part of their story? I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

WICKED FORCE is instalment 4.5 and novella in Sawyer Bennett’s contemporary, adult WICKED HORSE VEGAS romance series and the introductory prequel to the author’s new CODE NAME: GENESIS, Jameson Force Security series. This is nineteen year old, up and coming singer Joslyn Meyers, and twenty-six year old, former British Royal Marine / security expert Kynan McGrath’s story line. WICKED FORCE can be read as a stand alone without any difficulty. Any important information from the original series is revealed where necessary. NOTE: WICKED FORCE is part of Kristen Proby’s BIG SKY crossover collection. Told from dual firs person perspectives (Kynan and Joslyn) WICKED FORCE follows the building but forbidden relationship between nineteen year old, up and coming singer Joslyn Meyers, and twenty-six year old, former British Royal Marine / security expert Kynan McGrath. Hired by military buddy Jerico Jameson as his second in command for the Jameson Security Group, Kynan’s first major assignment to protect up and coming pop-star Joslyn Meyers, as she settles into her Vegas tour but a trip home for a benefit concert series, as well as the opportunity to star in a Hollywood movie finds our heroine at odds with her step-mother, the woman who has pushed Joslyn towards fortune and fame. What Joslyn never expected was to fall in love with the man hired to protect her both on and off the stage, a man she is willing to sacrifice a part of her future, in the name of love. What ensues is the building romance and relationship between Kynan and Joslyn, and the potential fall-out as Joslyn’s choices set into motion a deadly plan for our story line couple. WICKED FORCE is the prequel novella to the author’s new Jameson Security Forces series, and initial release CODE NAME: GENESIS. We are up close and personal as Kynan and Joslyn’s rapidly growing love threatens the future plans set out for our story line heroine. The premise is engaging and captivating : the romance is passionate; the characters are determined and energetic. WICKED FORCE ends on a bit of a cliff-hanger-you have been warned. Joslyn and Kynan’s story continues in CODE NAME: GENESIS

What a great addition to the Big Sky and Wicked Horse Vegas series'. Its also a starting place for Sawyer Bennett's new Jameson Force Security series, so to say there is a lot riding on this book would be an understatement and I am so happy to say that it definitely delivers. Told in dual POV's we get both Kynan and Joselyn's perspectives and the feelings they have for each are deep and true - the problem is they are both so young and outside forces are doing everything possible to keep them apart. (Namely Joselyn's stepmother/manager). We get to see both Cunningham Falls and Vegas and we get to see some old friends from both series along the way. I loved Kynan and Joselyn separate and even more together and I know I was rooting for them from the beginning. All in all, this is a fun fast read and if you love Sawyer Bennett or Kristen Proby you wont be disappointed.

Not my favorite trope but this author could probably write anything and I'd still enjoy! The story didnt totally match up to the blurb but it was still an enjoyable novella. Part of a crossover series but can definitely be read as a standalone.

Okay, so I thought I was ready for this from reading the prequel and I was so wrong! This blew me away in so many ways! Kynan is a former marine who served the Crown in the Middle East and during that time, became friends with Jericho Jameson. Jameson comes to him with an offer he cannot pass up helping him start up a security firm in Las Vegas. Joslyn is an up and coming singing star currently in residence in Las Vegas and due to some threatening/weird fan mail coming in, her "mom"ager Madeline decides to hire a security detail for Jos. "She's precious to this world. To me as well, but that can never go anywhere except the interior of my heart." I loved getting to see another side of Sawyer's Vegas, as well as their visit to Cunningham Falls, Mt, for a charity show. During their time together, Joslyn and Kynan try to fight the attraction between them, all the while Kynan is working to keep her safe from a serious threat to her life. Sparks fly no matter what they do to resist and man oh man are there fireworks when they finally stop resisting. Now we have to wait to see what happens after choice are made and lives are impacted.

This is a fun book! So much more to come. Joslyn and Kynan were pretty great together. We have met Kynan and have read about him in other books and oh we knew he had a past, this book just gives us a little understanding of some of his back story, but there is so much more! Joslyn a up and coming singer who trusts her mom/manger but wants to own her life... meets and then falls in love with her bodyguard.... sparks fly and then ..... there is more to come nine years later and lots of life lessons I am sure. CAN'T WAIT TO SEE (READ) what happens ;-)

I am a huge fan of Sawyer Bennett and I’ve been waiting for Kynan’s story for a long time. In this novella, we get to meet him before he becomes the man he is in the Wicked Vegas series. We see him and Josylyn fall in love and it’s a great tease for their book in the present time. I am definitely intrigued to see how this story plays out! *ARC provided by the author in exchange for an honest review*

Kynan is a gentleman and is interested in more than what you see on the surface from a woman. It's so nice that he takes the time to get to know Joslyn before even acting on his attraction towards her. She no doubt has a lot to learn but she has good instincts. And with those, she recognizes that Kynan is worth her time and dedication. Here you have characters at the very beginning of their story with details of how they fall in love. You will also find some characters you will simply hate. But like I said, this is just the beginning... there is more to come for them, accompanied by some hurdles and trying moments.

When Kynan McGrath came to America to work for the Jameson Group he thought .. Security .. Hell Yeah I Can Do That .. but when his first assignment is to guard a Pop Singer no one would have thought what could be what did happen .... He didn’t even see it coming .. Joslyn Meyer’s is the Pop Singer and she doesn’t need or want a Security detail but her Mom is insisting on it. What Madeline doesn’t know is that after a while Kynan and Joslyn form a loving friendship, after spending for much time together it was bound to happen. But when Madeline finds out about there friendship after a trip to Cunningham Falls to do a benefit concert things start to change .. Which way will Madeline make Joslyn’s career go ?? Will they be in Vegas or California ?? Will Joslyn be strong enough to tell her mom .. NO ?? So many unanswered questions but also some intriguing words at the end to just plainly make you think .. my biggest question is .. What is Madeline up too !! So awesome to see Jerico .. He is my favorite ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Wicked Force is a good prequel to Joslyn and Kynan's story. It's kinda weird seeing this version of Kynan instead of the current version I'm used to from the Wicked Horse Vegas series. He's happier and more open with Joslyn. They form a strong bond in a really short period of time. I wish I would have learned more about Kynan and his past other than the military, but I figure I'll get more of that in the future. Joslyn is a talented girl, she just had a hard time saying no to her mom. She wants to make her happy, but she often suffers from it. I'm glad that she grew more of a backbone as the book went on and I think that's because of Kynan. They're a cute couple and I enjoyed them together. I'm very interested to learn what exactly happened between the end of Wicked Force and the beginning of Code Name: Genesis.

This was a good start to a new series. I had a hard time liking Joslyn though. I get she’s young and insecure but those things drove me crazy too.

Sawyer Bennett Wicked Horse series has been a great series for me. Now we have crossover series with Kristen Proby. I believe this book stands alone whether you have read any of either authors books. Kynan is hired by his friend and fellow soldier, Jerico Jameson . Jerico is forming a new security firm and Kynan is his first new hire. The first assignment, protect a new artist staring in Vegas. Joslyn is just getting stared in her career and doesn't feel she needs a bodyguard. He Step Mom does and she finds she is always trying to please he. From the first meeting they are drawn to each other and both know they must stay professional. Kynan doesn't want to let his buddy down, but he is finding it hard to resit Joslyn. Kynan is a confident and strong alpha hero and Joysln is trying to find her way in the world of music. Can they find a way to be together and still keep their careers. I really like this book and so excited to read the new series about the Jameson Group.

One word...Kynan!! So if you are a fan of Sawyer Bennett's Wicked Horse Vegas series - you will already be well acquainted with the juicy awesomeness that is Kynan. This is the beginning of his story and I can't wait to read the rest in Sawyer Bennett's next new series!! Kynan has just joined The Jameson Group, a security firm that is just starting out, so this is BEFORE Wicked Horse Vegas. He takes on the role of bodyguard for an up and coming Vegas singer who wants to be a star...or should I say her stepmom wants her to be a star. Kynan is scrumptious and Joslyn is sweet. Together they are combustible. So while they fight the chemistry between them and become friends - eventually they give in. But Joslyn is on the rise and won't be in Vegas forever. "...she rocks my world. I'm going to be crushed when she leaves." But Kynan is willing to take what time they have and support her. "I'll wait for you no matter how long you're gone from me." The ending will leave you hanging for what happens to their future. It remains to be seen. This book was a quick read and so much fun. If you are a fan of Kynan - did I mention that he is a hot Brit?!? - and really who isn't if you've read the other series, then this one will not disappoint and sets us up for the next series. I happily requested and read an advance reader copy.
