The best of friends.
Two men. One woman.
A sinful playground called The Wicked Horse.

Entrepreneur turned millionaire, Dane Hawthorne, has been known to get his kicks at The Wicked Horse Vegas, and he has no shortage of beautiful women waiting for a shot at him. Driven to succeed, no matter if he’s in the boardroom or the bedroom, Dane never backs down from a challenge.

Avril Carrigan isn’t the type of woman to take risks in her personal life but after a broken heart and too much liquid courage, Avril decides to best way to get over one man, is to get under another. Looking to experience all the debauchery she’s heard about from her best friend and business partner, Dane, she requests one thing of him—take her to The Wicked Horse.

The request seems simple. One friend helping another in her time of need. But now that they’ve crossed the threshold, things aren’t as easy as they once seemed. Not only is Dane looking at Avril in a new light, but so is their other business partner and best friend, Andrew Collings. As Dane’s envy blooms, he wonders if he made the right decision when he agreed to show Avril his wicked world.

What happens when the lines of friendship are blurred and boundaries are crossed? Will their relationships survive or will jealousy tear them all apart?

This is the 3rd book of the series based around the Wicked Horse in Las Vegas. This series is different from the original in that we meet patrons of the club and not the staff as we did in the first series. So this one is about Avril, Dane, and Andrew---best friends for 17 years and colleagues at Dane's biotech company. Dane is a member of the Wicked Horse and suggests to Andrew that they go blow off steam. Avril takes exception that she wasn't invited. Ultimately they all end up there and after some hot voyeur sessions between them all, they add s3x partners to their relationship status.

All of the Wicked Horse books are super steamy and this one was no exception. However, I just didn't feel that "oh my goodness" response I have gotten from many of the other books. I don't know if it was because the three leads were already best friends and new everything about each other or if it was because it seemed a stretch that after their long friendship, they all decided that this was a good move for them. Something didn't sit right with me.

The story is told in all 3 POV. I think in the end I liked Andrew the best. His character seemed the most genuine. If anyone deserves an HEA, it is him.

I'll keep reading because I do enjoy this author and overall I like this series. Looking forward to what she brings us next.
