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!!

This book I'd worth the read to find out!! So get this book now!!
I just loved Bridger and Maggie story couldn't put it down so worth the wait! ❤️😍❤️
As always, Wicked Bond was a much awaited read for me as I have read all of Sawyer Bennett's published books. I also have read all of the Wicked Horse series as they have come out and have enjoyed every one of them immensely. I awaited Bridger's story with great anticipation. Bridger has been an enigma throughout the series and I believe most, if not all of those following the Wicked Horse series are anxious to hear his story.
Sawyer does not disappoint us with his story and the intricate details that are uniquely Bridger's story. I read this book nearly nonstop and finished it in record time. It was excellently written and brought the reader into the story quickly and had me hooked immediately. There were some surprises and there also was some familiarity. The "comfort" of the Wicked Horse and the Silo were less prominent and this was most definitely a book about Bridger.
I enjoyed the tenderness, the strength, and the protectiveness Bridger showed for his uninvited guest and the lengths that he was willing to go to to keep his charge safe and in his arms and out of harm's way. After all of the trauma Bridger had been through as well as the self-imposed isolation that he endured, I was happy that he was finally having his shot at happiness. And, in the end, Sawyer Bennett did not disappoint us with an HEA ending for Bridger as well.
There were some difficult spots that did just seem unfair and that the reader would have liked to have changed, but, alas, we must bow to the will of the author and the story she has laid out before us to enjoy. I did have a bit of trouble that the typical angst present seemed to be overcome without a lot of soul searching, but instead seemed to be overcome quite easily simply with a passage of time.
Overall, this certainly is a book that I would recommend and absolutely a no-brainer for Wicked Horse fans. A very good read that keeps you on the edge of your seat.
Definitely saved the best for last!!
Wicked Bond is the 5th book in the Wicked Horse Series and is Bridger's story. These books are best read in order. You meet Bridger in the first book and while you get little bits and pieces he is an enigma. Bridger is damaged, mysterious and very private. He's got his own little world structured to never allow his past to happen again and has the Silo to help overcome his past. But when Kyle Sommerville a member of a local MC and a member of the Silo knocks on his door carrying an unconscious woman and he needs Bridger to watch over her, will he be able to keep his carefully constructed world together.
Kayla belongs to Zeke, the president of the Mayhem's Mission MC. She's not his old lady, he already has one, but she belongs to him and nobody is allowed to have her other then Zeke. When Zeke becomes unstable and a threat to their child, Kayla takes off to protect her. But even though she thought she covered her tracks well it didn't keep Zeke from finding her. When he gets her back he is enraged that Kayla won't disclose the location of their daughter and will use any means necessary to find out even torture which Zeke's old lady is more then happy to dole out.
Kayla is a mother, and like most mothers she will go to any lengths to protect her daughter, and that includes the knowledge that her refusing to disclose the location may very well lead to her death. She is repeatedly tortured but doesn't break, she's strong and protective and very leery when she is rescued of the help being given her.
Can Bridger find a way to get past his previous trauma to get the girl of his dreams or is the relationship going to be one sided. Can Kayla get past her distrust of anyone trying to help her or accept the help being offered.
The story is well developed, characters are multi dimensional, there's lots of twists and turns in the story and though you get a little bit of Bridger's story at the beginning you get more throughout the book. This book was very difficult to put down, more like it wasn't put down once I started it. The book flows well, and keeps you very invested in the story. The characters fit together really well. This truly is a five star read in my opinion. Another home run!!
I know I say this over and over but the brilliance of Ms. Bennett and the way she has of crafting a story has once again blown me away!! This entire series is outside my norm reading but I found myself anxiously awaiting the release of each book. I am elated to finally have Bridger's story. I knew his backstory would be dark and pain filled and I definitely was not disappointed. It was amazing to see him change on each and every page of this book. Finally caring, finally loving, but fighting those emotions with everything within him! Maggie was the perfect little ray of light he needed and having her enter his life in any other way than she did probably wouldn't have worked.
This is a book you definitely don't want to miss! I highly recommend this to everyone 18+
