When I heard Bennett was writing a new series I said "Hell yes! Sign me up!" When I started reading Wicked Fall I was thrilled because I quickly realized I had already met the lead character Woolf. He is the younger brother of Tenn Jennings from Shaken, Not Stirred (Last Call #5). Now Tenn was sexy as hell but I was not prepared for how sexy and dirty Woolf turned out to be.
Woolf and Callie grew up in the same social circle. He was best friends with Callie's older brother Richard. Bro-Code says you don't mess with your best friends little sister but he damn sure wanted to. Callie had been crushing on Woolf for years. They find themselves together grieving the death of Richard and though Callie is prepared to give her heart and her virginity to Woolf, he's not willing to take it. He could never be good enough for her. Eleven years later and he still sees her as sweet and innocent and doubts she would ever accept his sexual proclivities especially after she catches her fiance cheating in a very kinky Dom/sub situation.
Seventy-two hours later and Callie is dancing on a bar for a wet t-shirt contest. She had no idea it was Woolf's bar. Neither are the same people they use to know. Their desire for each other is instantly off the charts. Callie is determined to discover her true-self and hopes that process includes getting a little wild with Woolf. Though it takes Woolf a minute to concede he is finally ready to claim the one that he let get away.
I may have failed to mention what Woolf's sexual proclivities were. Well let me tell ya, he is a dirty dirty boy. What started back in college as getting his kink-on has turned into a lifestyle and now a business venture with his best friend Bridger. The Wicked Horse is just a cover for their secret and members only exclusive sex club "The Silo". I could really relate to Callie when she discovers exactly what goes on in The Silo. Like her, I would be fascinated and a little frightened by BDSM lifestyle. The "New" Callie is dead set on learning more. They both have doubts about her being able to fit into the lifestyle but I loved that it's Woolf that can't accept her in that world. Maybe it's not the world that Woolf belongs in after all. I want to thank Bennett for not letting Woolf break Callie's heart in all the ways he had access to as the owner of a sex club. He has a heart of gold and I loved that he discovers his true self along with Callie as they fall in love.
Bridger plays huge roll in these two finding their HEA. He gives them both words of wisdom that had depth I wasn't expecting. It really makes me want to know what has made him the man he is. I love the lengths that Bridger has gone to and will go to for his best friend. His loyalty to Bridger made me reserve a piece of my heart just for him.
There was so much passion and heat. It wasn't the most erotic book I've read but it definitely gives a peek at a world I know little about and can't help being intrigued by. It's like when I'm driving by a car accident or watching a really gross video and just can't look away. Bennett brings so much heart to the story though that the extra heat is only a bonus not the focus. I have a feeling after reading the epilogue that the next book Wicked Lust is going to blow my panties off or at least require a clean up.
