Ohmigod!!! So good.. I’ve read the others.. cuz I just knew this would be a great one.. and Sawyer didn’t let me down.. I absolutely love her books
Too many f bombs
When an author has to revert to an f bomb in the first sentence, I know it’s going to be poor writing.
Dumped this trash after the first paragraph.
Loved Bridger and Maggie!
I read #1 Wicked Fall first and HAD to read this one, Wicked Bond, next. I became so intrigued by Bridger as I read about Woolf in the first book that I skipped to Wicked Bond next! He was such a complicated, tortured, damaged character that I wanted him to find his healing. Great read, good plot, and a satisfying read. Well done. Now I’m going to read about Kyle Sommerville in Finding Kyle.
This is the only book in this series I’ve read. It is number 5 in the series but it was a free book so I read it to see if I’d like them before I purchased any of the rest. I really liked it and didn’t feel I missed anything by not reading the ones the precluded it until I read some of the reviews saying how the others in series build up his character. I may have even given it a five star if I’d read them and had even more background on Bridger. Still pretty awesome book.
After reading all of the Wicked Horse series I have so Bridger’s story is my favorite! His character has been building so much from the first 4 books that this book finally gave us an into his character! Huge fan of Sawyer Bennett and highly recommend reading this book and her others!

Ok ladies, this is your next series to read. I loved every moment of it and hope there is another one in the making real soon. I can see myself re-reading this series several times. Thank you for the adventure.
Saved the best for last!

This is the final book in The Wicked Horse series and I am so sad that it’s coming to an end! However, SB saved the best for last! I have been waiting patiently for Bridger Payne’s book since book one. There is just something about him that intrigues me. He’s mysterious and sexy. You know he has deep, dark secrets and you want to know what they are and you want to be the one to heal him!
This book is intense. It deals with sexual and physical abuse and if you have triggers to those topics, steer clear of this book. The message that is brought out throughout the book and life lessons taught are terrific. This is also true about the entire series as all the couples have hurdles to work through.
This book doesn’t have as much Silo time as the other books and that was fine with me. I really didn’t miss it because the sexy times with Bridger and Maggie were enough. It made me have so many feelings of great sadness, giddy with happiness and despair as they were working through their issues and working on their relationship, or what Bridger would allow. Their sexy times were amazing! He was commanding, but tender. He talked dirty, but he also could be sweet. Maggie was the perfect fit for him. She was also my favorite heroine of the series. She has been through so much yet she was so strong and had such an amazing heart! She is such a wonderful mother to her daughter Belle.
I loved the suspense in this book as well as the romance journey I was taken on. If you want to read this as a stand-alone you can, but I recommend you read the entire series to get the full story of Bridger Payne and trust me you will fall in love with him. All the characters in this series are interesting and all are a great read, but this book by far for me was the best!
Fantastic Story! This was so intense and emotional as well as sweet and sizzling hot,! Well written, with complicated yet lovable characters that will captivate you, as well as burrow deep into your heart. What a great ending to a great series.
Bridger Payne has been an enigma, controlled, unemotional and real kinky. His past is filled full of dark painful secrets that has always had him closed off, with his walls up. He has seen all of his close circle of friends find love, but he doesn't even really know what love is, so he feels he is destined to be alone, not worthy of anyones love. But when he finds himself with a battered woman one night, and she is entrusted to his care and protection, he finds he cannot turn his back on someone who has been abused.
Maggie Waylon is perfect for Bridger in every way. She is kind, honest and caring. She is respects his boundaries and is loving and dedicated to her loved ones. They enter into a sexual relationship with no commitments, but it is sensual, decadent and mutually satisfying. Soon Maggie can't help but to start romanticizing him in her mind. He is her hero and shows he has nothing but her and her daughter's safety and well being foremost in his mind.
Getting to see what truly motivates Bridger was incredibly emotional. Your heart will break for him, and seeing his vulnerable side makes it so real and raw. This is a Fantastic story but also reading this in dual POV is incredible, you will not want to put down, it will stay in your heart long after you have finished reading. Don't miss out on this fantastic series. Highly Recommended!
Received a complimentary copy through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Let me just say, that I would be lying if I told you that I wasn't dying to read Wicked Bond. I have loved the Wicked Horse series and in each book Bridger Payne was the relationship and sexual sensei. There were hints that when his story his story was told, it would be nothing short of powerful and Sawyer Bennett has given us a book that is all that and more. With every page turn, I felt grafted to not only my seat, but to my device as this story unfolded, all the while my pulse was racing in anticipation of how it would all turn out. Spoiler alert - It was FAMAZING.
PSA -- if you haven't read the Wicked Horse series, you are missing out on five hot and dirty books with a cast of characters that you will want to smuggle home. Though, while the sex is filthy good, its the relationships that keep you coming back. There are strong foundations of love, trust and honesty that serve to remind us that there is zero shame in acting on your needs and desires when these elements are present. It is demonstrated again and again in the most dazzling fashion. If they aren't there already, these books MUST be on your TBR.
As they say, "those who can't, teach." Truer words were never spoken when it comes to Bridger. He is "The Man" with the open ears and wise words who has given counsel and more to each of his friends, as well as their respective partners. All the while guarding his heart behind walls of granite that he has built to keep himself safe and he believes others safer. I don't think I was quite prepared for just how invested I was in learning Bridger's story and the pure emotion I felt as it all came to light. In the end, I couldn't have loved him more.
Those stones around Bridger's heart are heavy-duty, so it takes a strong and resolute woman to send them tumbling down. Maggie Waylon is a force of nature, who is every single bit of a survivor. She can go toe to toe with Bridger, not just as a sexual or sparring partner, but as the person who can see and accept him for the man he is. I loved Maggie -- for not only her strength, but her sheer will. As you read Wicked Bond, you will understand why these two hearts are so perfectly connected.
Wicked Bond is the great big bow on this Lexus of a series. Though I am sad that this series has reached its end, I am so glad to have been in the company of these characters and each of their fabulous stories. Thank you so much for sharing them with us Sawyer!!
