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.
I have to admit, I was a little unsure about how I’d like WICKED CHOICE. A friends-to-lovers romance with an unexpected pregnancy thrown in sounded great. It was the fooling around at a sex club on top of that, that I was unsure about. After finishing the story, I felt the same way. I loved the romance side of this story, but not the club scenes.
Okay, that’s not entirely true. There was one club scene between Bodie and Rachel that I really liked. The scenes I didn’t like were the ones that took place in front of their coworkers. I just couldn’t get my head around believing Rachel’s coworkers—men that she leads and commands—could see her as anything other than a sexual plaything after watching Bodie dominate her right in front of them. On purpose! This was the only part of the entire story that I didn’t like.
I liked Rachel, who is strong and doesn’t take shit from anyone, but I also liked that she could let go with Bodie and really let him in. As weird as it sounds, I enjoyed watching her struggle with her decision not to raise their child because she didn’t want to give up the job she loves. I think I liked it because while she struggled, she was always honest and was never afraid to talk about her feelings.
“I think you would be a fantastic mother. Our child will lose so much without you in its life.”
I liked Bodie, although I had a hard time with his name and kept wanting to call him Brodie instead. I loved that when Rachel told him she was pregnant, he immediately stepped up to the plate and was willing to be their child’s sole parent since Rachel didn’t want to be a mother. He was an all-around great guy, calm in any situation and would put his child before anyone or anything else. In short, he’s a catch.
WICKED CHOICE is told in dual POVs and comes with a sweet HEA for Bodie and Rachel that left me smiling. It’s also the introduction to a spin off series that will launch in early 2019 that is being written by Sawyer and another author. It will focus on the members of the Jameson Group, and I’m hoping through that series we’ll see more of Bodie and Rachel, and we’ll hopefully find out if it’s a boy or a girl.
