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.

Another great book in this series! I don't love the tortured damaged guy but Bridger is one of those you can't help but love! He has so many ghosts in his past that he can't seem to move past them. Mags is a tough girl with a trouble on her heals. These to explode together. Their relationship is awesome! The sex, the dirty talk and even the softer sides were perfect! This book is crazy HOT!!!! I love this series! I have no idea how many books are going to be in this series but I really hope there are more! I need a book where the characters spend a lot of time at the Silo <3
Great narration too!!! I love Lee Samuels & Kirsten Leigh!
I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
Well folks this is the final book in Sawyer Bennett's awesome series that's been packed full of action, suspense, bad guys, hot sex, raw emotions, great characters, romance, love... and happy endings. And, as the saying goes, she really did leave the best til last coz Bridger's story is one that sucks you straight in and will tug at your heart strings at the emotional pain that Bridger's endured. As part owner of the Wicked Horse and the Silo Sex Club he's been in all the other books where he's helped out his friends - either in or out of the Silo setting but he's always been aloof, detached and emotionally switched off.... but he just needed the right woman to unlock his heart.
In this book Bridger is dissatisfied with his life - he's seen all four of his friends find peace, contentment and love and, although he knows that's never going to be him, he yearns for something unknown and just out of reach. He's damaged, haunted and tormented by horrific child abuse which has left him with numerous 'triggers', demands and restrictions on sexual activities and emotionally alienates himself from the act. But when an acquaintance leaves an unconscious, beaten and tortured woman in his care little does Bridger know that she'll be his salvation and the key to unlocking his lifeless heart.
Maggie was a rebellious teen - but years later she's still paying for it - because she's just been rescued from purgatory - a two year purgatory at the hands of a mean and vicious biker President and his Old Lady who each made her life a living Hell in different ways. She feels safe now in Bridger's house - he's moody, sexy, handsome as sin and all Alpha - but how long will it last because Bridger talks about an end date, the MC are relentlessly looking for her and, now that they're lovers, how safe is her heart?
As with all of Sawyer Bennett's books there's sizzling chemistry, smokin hot sex and loveable multi-layered characters and this one's no exception but your heart breaks for the emotional torment that Bridger faces as he mentally wars with the demons of his past in order to get a future with Maggie. This is an emotion-fuelled romance as a very understanding and loving Maggie tries to slate the demons that haunt Bridger's past... while Bridger tries to keep Maggie safe from the flesh and blood ones that aim to kill her. Dual POV's, there's well loved faces from the previous books and flawless narration.
Worth a credit? It's hot, it's heavy, it's sweet as well as raw, it's got angst, drama and a loveable but damaged Alpha Hero... and it's been an addictive and beautiful listen too to see two damaged souls save each other - so HELL YES creditworthy. And it's with a heavy heart that I have to say adieu to a series whose characters I've loved, whose stories have held me riveted and whose flawed, kinky and possessive Alphas have each left his mark... not on my flesh but on my heart.
Whip Crack Away - Finally!
I just can't seem to get enough of The Wicked Horse series, and I've been desperately waiting for the story of Bridger Payne. We are on book 5 in the series and Bridger has been in each and every one, taking a very active part in each storyline. I was left "needing" to hear his story, and, finally we have it, and it's everything I expected and more. Bridger has major trust issues, stemming from his very early teens, and he is resigned to believe he is not worthy. Maggie is dealing with a very volatile ex lover and needs assistance, help comes in the guise of the beautifully broken Bridger. They both enter a convenient 'just for now' relationship and sparks are flying. Bridger however is not willing to accept a deeper relationship, he needs to put to rest all the ghosts from his past before being able to move forward in a relationship. Is he able to do that before Maggie takes her broken heart and finds someone new to help her repair it? A fab story told in dual POV that has still not quelled my need for more Wicked Horse shenanigans (I can't seem to get enough). Another winner from me. I love Sawyer Bennett's audio books and thus did not disappoint, nothing narrators worked well together and really caught the feel of the story. Win win.
Have a Boomerang Millenial Daughter. We like her, she likes us so, nice to have her back. Both my Husband and I are Proud USN Veterans.
The whole series was incredible but this book was the cherry on top. Yes, there's sex but necessary, not the main story, it was about two human beings.
What an incredible journey both Bridger and Mags had. There are so many broken people out there in real life and die broken, Bridger and Mags were so lucky and they knew it. Two very broken people who found each other. It was a wonderful ending, she saved the best for last❤️
Enjoy romance, erotic, and YA
Oh my heart ached for Bridger's tortured soul. Throughout the Wicked series I knew his story would be sad but I never expected this. Maggie's strength, patience & determination made her perfect for Bridger. Having frequent appearances from all the gang (Woolf / Callie, Rand / Kat, Logan/ Auralie, Cain / Sloane) completed our journey with Bridger & Mags. Lee Samuels & Kirsten Leigh perfected the narration. Thank you Sawyer Bennett for this hot, sex-filled, steamy series. Sigh. ;-)
I'm so happy Bridger's story was finally told. I couldn't wait to hear his story. As sad as it is to hear that he went through all that heart ache, it helps explain his adversities to certain situations. I'm so happy that he was able to overcome them eventually and not let the best things that had ever happened in his life pass him by. This story had a some of all your favorite characters from the other books dropping in for a bit. It was good to hear from them.
The male narrator really had Bridger's voice and intonations down pat. So happy it didn't change from other books in the series.
Loved it! Hope we get more stories of the sort. Maybe Ted's story? Not ready to let go...
I just have to roll my eyes and say 'really' when someone writes in a review that the book was not 'realistic'...come on now 'really'!
So the Wicked Horse and Silo come to an end. Everyone finds their Happy Ever After!
I've been wanting Bridger's story since the first book Wicked Fall. We find out why Bridger is emotionally unattainable. His story as a child and teen is sad but it's not as dark and grim as I was expecting. I thought about the other books I have by Sawyer Bennett, and I have a lot, she writes an array of emotions for us the reader/listener without getting too dark and gritty.
Thanks to Maggie, Bridger gets the confidence to confront his demons and find peace. Lee Samuels gives so much emotion to Bridger you don't want him to stop talking; and you'll have sweet tears at the epilogue.
I adore this story and series. Although I'm sad for it to end I know Sawyer has new stories coming our way with new characters for us love....she just writes that way.
Kirsten Leigh and Lee Samuels performed the entire series. Their a perfect combination with each other and Sawyer.
Absolutely worth a credit/$$. I'll be visiting the Wicked Horse and Silo from time to time.
