He never wanted to be anyone’s hero…
Asher Knight is tall, dark, and wickedly handsome. He’s also irrevocably broken. Submerging himself in long hours at work by day and debauchery at The Wicked Horse by night, Asher uses work and play to numb the pain and guilt he feels over the death of his wife. What isn’t satisfied with one will surely be resolved by the other. At least that’s how he’s survived the last few years.
Hannah Madigan works three jobs just to make ends meet. Beat down by life, not to mention a cheating husband who was unfairly awarded custody of their daughter, Hannah is determined to make a better life for herself and get her kid back. But with pressures mounting and one costly mistake that leaves her owing Asher a huge debt, Hannah is as close as she’s ever come to throwing in the towel.
She’s given a golden opportunity…
Determined to stay the course by any means necessary, Hannah accepts an unusual proposal from Asher. He’ll give her a job. She’ll give him her body. Sounds easy, right? Until she realizes she needs his help more than she’s willing to admit. And he finds her adding to his life in ways he never wanted to accept.
This wicked knight may just learn that sometimes saving someone else means allowing yourself to be saved in return.
Reading Wicked Knight was quite a surprise for me because I did not expect it to be an emotional and relationship driven read! I just finished reading the first book in her Wicked Horse Vegas series, Wicked Favor and that was just erotic BDSM all the way, with relationship development of course.
Wicked Knight is actually not that! Sure, both Asher and Hannah go to the private BDSM club Wicked Horse Vegas. Yes, there is some kinky sex, but it’s not as much as the first book! I have to say that I am a fan of Wicked Knight because of this! I have since realized that I’m not really a fan of BDSM books, just erotic romance, so this book checked all the boxes for me.
I love the relationship development between Asher and Hannah. Yes, the plot was a bit fast – especially at the start when the first chapter had Asher propositioning Hannah already. However, I loved that there was some emphasis on their budding relationship after that.
There was an emphasis on how Asher treated Hannah’s five-year-old daughter, Hope, and that is something that I really liked. I thought that was really so sweet since the main reason why Hannah agreed to the proposition was to gain custody of her daughter.
Overall, I’m glad I read this book. I may read the rest of the books in the series, but I’m not so sure when!

I know BDSM was one of the popular erotic romance sub-genres.
