I am the most sought after man in The Wicked Horse. Sex is nothing but a game to me and I’m the type that will leave at the end of the night without looking back. Tonight, there is no way I can walk away from the mysterious green-eyed beauty behind the mask of sapphire feathers at the club’s masquerade event.
Clearly looking to walk on the wild side, she’s the escape I’m looking for. Unfortunately, I realize too late that I know exactly who she is. And now I’m left to reconcile the fact that I just experienced the greatest pleasure of my life with Jorinda Pearce.
My best friend’s little sister.
And there is not another woman in the world who is more off limits.
I confess I was a little annoyed when I realised that this book was not the first in the series, however, I don’t think I really missed out on anything important by not having read the first one. The book’s plot plays on the fine lines of friendship, siblings, and bonds between people not based on shared blood.
At first, I was a little unsure about the plot, I don’t really read a lot of erotica, and the pacing where the main character goes from being ‘vanilla’ and questioning her sexual failings to being fully immersed into the idea of sexual exhibitionism seemed a little too quick for me and a little too easy. The fact I found the characters interesting made it easier to keep reading and I did enjoy the book but I would just like to have seen more of an internal struggle from the main character regarding her choices.
The book is well written and I get that the length fits the genre but I was left feeling like I would have liked a little bit more, however, accept that is probably more my failing than the book, and it is only fair I scale the book based on its genre rather than how much more could have been added.
I did enjoy this book and did read it in a day so I am going to give it 4 out of five stars, for me the only thing I can’t get past is that there would not have been any internal turmoil with Jorinda after the first visit to the club.
