Vixen in Vegas by Emma Nichols

vixen in vegas

 

synopsis

It was supposed to be a week of simply being, of living in the moment, and enjoying every minute while it lasted. Of course, that kind of intoxication can have lingering effects. For Sin, she found herself wanting to break all the rules, to extend her time with the stranger who stole her heart. Vegas was just the right kind of place to take such a gamble. Meeting up with BE at the gondolas was a risk. Love went against everything they had promised, but the best things in life can’t be planned.

Soon Alysin will be tested.

After guarding her heart for so long, she finally let a man in and discovered that the worst things in life happened when she least expected them. When she walked in on BE with another woman and overheard their heated conversation, she suddenly remembered there was a reason she made these rules.

Will broken rules lead to broken hearts or will she realize that though love was a gamble, she was all in?

excerpt

A server stopped by the table then.  The guy was cute, I guess.  From his actions, I was certain he was used to women falling all over him.  Poor guy.  He wasn’t going to be able to flirt his way to a fat tip tonight.  I was impervious to the charms of other men and
Jolie…lesbian.

“What can I get for you, gorgeous?”  He asked, flashing a huge smile
that exposed perfectly white straight teeth.

“Just a Coke for me,” I said.  Then I turned my attention once more to Jolie.

She rolled her eyes so hard, her entire head bobbed.  “Please.  And we need some Irish Nachos…extra sour cream.”  She studied the appetizers a moment more before shrugging and conceding.  “And that should do it…but I reserve the right to order a brownie sundae later.”  She nodded and smirked.

My eyebrows rose.  “A brownie sundae?  Since when?”

“Since you are in mourning,” she announced.

“I’m not in mourning!  What do I have to be upset about?  We just returned from an amazing cruise.  I had some of the hottest sex of my life.  And I’ll be seeing him again in a week!”  I crossed my arms over my chest.  “We’re starting a new adventure.  Life is good.”

“Yes, life is good, but you don’t really believe that.  This is why you are so out of sorts.  You are having doubts.  I can see it.”  She frowned at me.

“How would you know?”  I sniffed.  “I never have doubts.  I am the picture of confidence.”  I leaned back in the booth in an attempt to project a picture of calm and cool.

She laughed at me then, a big hollow sound, the mocking one.  “I’ve known you forever.  The last ten years it has been the two of us and your flavor of the month.  This guy, BE, he’s not a flavor of the month.  BE is the spice of life.  You know it, and I know it.  I know how unsettling this is for you.  Just know that he won’t let you down.  He’s not going to stand you up.  You can focus on doing what needs to be done and soon, you will be together again.”

“We’ll see,” I said with a shrug, trying to brush it off like it didn’t matter.  Oh, but the girl in me wanted to beg Jolie for more…more reassurance, more pretty words that would soothe my tortured soul.

myreview

I will admit that I have preconceived notion of how I thought Vixen in Vegas by Emma Nichols would go. I thought it would pick up right where Sin at Sea ended and then go on to be a predictable story. Boy, am I glad that I was wrong!!!

“I’ve never been in love.” I admitted. “I’m scared of losing me to be with you.” I was silent after that admission. It took a lot for me to share that.

“Well, if it makes you feel any better…I don’t make a habit of falling in love. I tried it once. It didn’t go the way I expected. I’ve been a little gun shy ever since. For you, I’d take a bullet. You are a once in a lifetime kind of love,” he said quietly. “Promise me, you’ll meet me.”

This exchange happened between Sin and BE before they were scheduled to meet up in Las Vegas. Sin was starting to have second thoughts and BE not only convinced her but he also me that she needed to meet him and that his feelings for her were indeed real. So, from this point forward we knew that some hot and heavy physical action was about to go down!!

But, there is where the surprise happens. Nichols takes the physical chemistry and the emotional connection that we read during Sin at Sea and took it to a much deeper level. I was simply amazed by the anger, the sadness, the joy, and the laughter that I experienced in this novella. This was a perfect sequel to Sin at Sea!!

DISCLAIMER: I received a complimentary copy of Vixen in Vegas in exchange for my honest review.

What made her decide to be an erotica author?
Simple.
How else was she going to parlay her two favorite past times into a career?
Emma is single and loving it. Like her first character, Alysin, Sin for short, she doesn’t believe in settling or in settling down. She loves to indulge in her passions whenever the mood strikes and enjoys keeping all of life’s cliche moments spicy.
Known for her sense of humor, Emma surrounds herself with friends whose antics often become the source of book fodder. Her ideal situation would be to explore the Caribbean while writing. She pursues that dream daily.
