Wicked Fall, by Sawyer Bennett is a 305-page contemporary romance novel and is the second book out of a 5-book series called “The Wicked Horse”. And since this is a 5-book series, you can expect reviews by this author pretty back to back for the next few weeks as I go through the books. It is written from a first-person POV, two-sided.
Sawyer is an author who generally writes dirty, dirty sex scenes. I’m taking a step back from “The Wicked Horse Vegas” because I learned that this book is the beginning of the sex club. So if you’re someone who is looking for some dirty read (which there is nothing wrong with that) this is the book for you.

Callie had always been in love with Woolf and when she asked him to take her virginity when they were younger and he said no, she was crushed. She went to the east coast and ended up becoming engaged to an up-and-coming lawyer. The problem is she felt like a real Stepford wife. When she found her fiance tied to a bed and being whipped by a dominatrix it was easy for her to make the decision to get out of dodge (or in this case Connecticut) and return home to Wyoming. She went to a bar dressed in a short skirt and white shirt, entering a wet t-shirt contest only to be pulled off the bar by her teenage crush, Woolf.
Fun fact, Woolf is named after Virginia Woolf and his brother is named after Byron Tennyson. Moving on, Woolf had a thing for Callie, but she was his best friend’s little sister, per bro code, yada yada. When he saw Callie on that bar the green-eyed monster of jealousy reared its head demanding he covet what’s his.
The story progresses through a bunch of shenanigans on Callie finding out that Woolf’s bar is a cover for a secret sex club and to her discovering her sexuality and Woolf finding that he doesn’t need the sex club like he thought he did now that he’s had Callie.
Overall, I found the characters likeable.
Generally, here are my thoughts
- This book is a great, quick read.
- I think this author’s books are meant to be read that way, quick and light.
- The grand gesture at the end was good and gave max points to Woolf.
- The ending was nicely wrapped up. The book does read as a standalone.
In summary, I give this a 3 out of 5.
