(SIN is book one of the Vegas Nights series. Each book in this series is a standalone novel.)
Emma Hart’s Sin (Vegas Nights #1) was just okay for me. Based on the blurb, I expected the lead, Damon Fox, to be more forceful, more powerful Vegas player paired against a naïve Dahlia. The actual characters were more alike than dissimilar.
Damon and Dahlia are two opposites which should attract but I didn’t read the chemistry between them. The more I read the more it seemed as if Dahlia was an acquisition for Damn to have, to spite his father. There is a good push and pull between the characters and Dahlia is well-written. Smart, though naïve, determined, witty. Damon is a man who trying to come out from underneath the ugly shadow of his father, though, in the beginning, he is still doing his bidding.
This is a quick read with a HEA and some very sexy scenes. There are some questions left unanswered (i.e. why was the father so determined to get the bar) but overall a decent read.
