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.
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.
In WICKED NEED, we have Cat, a young woman left homeless and penniless after her much older billionaire husband died and cut her out of his will. When Rand finds her sleeping in her car in the Silo parking lot, he offers her a place to stay while she gets back on her feet. Cat’s had a fairly miserable life. Her mother neglected and used her and she’s never known her father. She married a wealthy man in the hopes he’d provide her with a home and financial stability, but she quickly learnt that she had to earn those two things by servicing her husband’s associates. What can I say about Rand? He’s a nice guy who likes to help those in need. His financial future is set thanks to his time as an Olympian. He’s very adventurous when it comes to sex, so anything goes, and I do mean anything. In short, he’s nice, he’s rich and he’s a kinky mo-fo. Really, what more do you need to know?
What I really liked about this story was how open and honest Rand and Cat were with each other. They revealed all their secrets and were both very mature when it came to their relationship. When Rand’s ex-girlfriend popped up, he didn’t try to hide it for “Cat’s own good”. He hung up the phone and told her all about it. When Cat revealed what her life has been like, Rand held no judgement and gave her the encouragement to move forward with her life. When Cat had doubts about her self-worth, Rand went above and beyond to show her that she meant something to him.
Rand: “I’m falling in love with you and I’m sorry if that makes you uncomfortable, but you need to know for a woman who doesn’t think she amounts to much, you’re pretty much amounting to my everything.”
WICKED NEED is told in dual POVs and while it’s part of a series, it can be read as a stand-alone. I think each book in the Wicked Horse series gets better and hotter. The scene with Cat, Rand and Logan was F#$&ing HOT!!! God, I’d love to be a fly on that wall. Scratch that. I’d love to be Cat in that room with those two hot men going at it. Damn! Sawyer told me this was the hottest one yet and she wasn’t kidding, but I honestly think it could get hotter still. What I’ve noticed is that when the men of the Silo meet their women, their need for the Silo tends to fall away, which I suppose is romantic, but at the same time it kinda sucks. Let’s face it, the series is based around a secret sex club, yet we don’t see much action happening inside the club. From memory, this story only contains two scenes in the Silo and one of those didn’t even involve sex. Logan’s story is next in WICKED RIDE, which comes out on June 28 and maybe, just maybe, we’ll see some more scenes from the Silo.
