New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart, brings the heat and heart in a brand-new series of sexy standalone novels, starting with SIN...
Damien Fox lived up to his name.Cunning, sly, and dangerous, fifty percent of Vegas’ strip clubs were his.Whatever he wanted, money, attention, women, he got.And now he wanted to buy my bar, no matter the cost.I wanted him to go to hell on a first-class ticket.He played a dirty game, and I followed his rules. I let him think he would win.Despite our differences, it was clear to see that we were no more than two broken hearts colliding in the darkness.Closed off, sexy, and holding a pain that would crush a lesser man, he was the ultimate sin.One I couldn’t deny myself, even though I knew better than to trust a fox...
(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.

New Review: Breaking Autumn by Jackson Kane

New Review:   Breaking Autumn  by Jackson Kane

This is a new-to-me author and the blurb caught my interest so I gave him a try. I have to say that I was impressed with the story building and character interaction. Jackson Kane did not rely on the standard male writer trope, the usual alpha-male chest-pounding posturing hero, which was refreshing. Kane’s lead, Dante […]
