Bridger Payne is an enigma that no one can figure out. Wise beyond his years, eerily intuitive and sexy as hell, every woman in The Silo wants him.
None can have him.
Not the real man, anyway.
He might wield the lash for you if you ask prettily, but he’ll get no gratification from it. He’ll definitely make you scream, but he won’t think twice about you when he walks away.
Bridger carries the darkest of secrets. He’s filled with too much pain.
He’s utterly untouchable.
Until she came along.
Warning: this book has sex in it. Lots of sex. Dirty sex. The Wicked Horse Series is a bit different than what Sawyer Bennett normally writes. While you’ll still enjoy fabulous characters, a suspenseful story, some witty banter and an epic romance, there’s just... a lot of sex. You’ve been warned.
Get Wicked Bond now!

I received an advance cipy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Bridger! FINALLY! From the very first book I was itching to learn Bridger's story. He is pretty much the definition of "strong and silent" type. Bridger doesn't really do feelings. Or relationships. But he will make sure that you get off. And so will he, but he won't enjoy it. EVERYONE wants a piece of him, but only a few people will actually get to know him. He has a few close friends, but to most people, he is an enigma.
All that starts to change when an unconscious Maggie ends up at his house. Maggie is in a very bad way and in a blink of an eye, Bridger is playing nurse and finds himself getting involved in something that he definitely does not want to be in. Maggie has gotten herself into a very unfortunate situation and has been brought to Bridger's to not only recover, but to escape the hell she has been living. Upon waking up Maggie should be scared, but deep down she can tell that Bridger wants to help her and her daughter Belle.
You guys...Bridger with a little kid. HOLY SWOON. Good lord.
“Hi, Bwidg-uh,” she says, and I actually feel my insides go a bit gooey. I think this may be the first conversation I’ve ever had with a two-year-old, and she’s fucking cute as all get out.
“Hi, Belle,” I say as I reach out and hold my hand up in front of her. “Got a high five in there for me?”
She looks at me in confusion before looking to her mom, and then back to me. I lean forward in my chair, take her hand, and gently flattening it out before I slightly smack it to mine. “See…that’s a high five.”
I let her hand go, and she automatically slaps it to mine again. “High five,” she says with a laugh.
“Or,” I say as I curl my hand into a fist, taking hers to do the same. I then bump my knuckles against hers. “You can do a fist bump.”
I let her go, and she knocks her fist against mine on her own. “Fist bump.”
Laughing, I look to Maggie and say, “Smart kid.”
“Gets that from her mommy,” she replies tartly.
My phone chimes with an incoming text. Maggie sets Belle down so she can pour a cup of coffee for herself. The little girl immediately scrambles up on one of the kitchen chairs beside me where I feel the weight of her stare. I give her a smile as I pull my phone out, and then glance down at the text.
It’s from Cal. We are flying in tomorrow. Already booked room at Wort. Like to do club Sunday night.
“Fist bump,” I hear Belle say and I look up to see her little hand hovering in midair. I make a fist and knock it to hers. She giggles, and I can’t help but laugh.
There’s a smile lingering on my face as I bend over my phone and shoot a quick response back to Cal. Sounds good. Let’s do dinner first.
“Fist bump,” Belle says, and I look back up. She’s looking at me expectantly, fist hovering in the air. I touch my knuckles to hers, and she starts giggling uncontrollably.
“You’ve created a monster,” Maggie says, and my gaze slides to hers. But she’s not looking at me. She’s looking at Belle with such uncontrolled love in her eyes that it makes me want to start crying for some reason.
“Fist bump,” Belle says, and I give it to her again.
She laughs and laughs, and that makes Maggie laugh, and I realize I’m feeling something I’ve never felt in my entire life.
For the first time…ever…I feel charmed, and I get the distinct impression that there isn’t anything Belle would ask of me that I wouldn’t give her.
Don't let that last line fool you..it was pretty much love at first between these two. And the longer he is around Maggie, he also finds himself falling for her as well, but his terrible childhood is always at the forefront of his mind. Bridger has a habit of closing himself off and pushing people away. He truly believes that he shouldn't be happy. But Maggie (with the aid of Woolf, (thank you Woolf!) doesn't give up. Unfortunately for both of them, Bridger is stubborn and it takes him a while to come around. It's not an easy road to their happily ever after, but everything that they go through is worth it in the end.
This is my favorite book of the series and I'm sad that this is also the last book. I love the men and women of the Wicked Horse series. Sawyer has given us a great series with lots of interesting characters and story lines. Each book had it's own feel to it and it never once felt stale or repetitive. The Silo portion of the series was something that I hadn't read much of, but Sawyer's writing was fantastic and extremely hot. I can definitely see myself revisiting the Wicked Horse gang in the future.
