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...
First off, I kind of new this book was going to be awesome, because from just the blurb you knew you had too characters at odds with each other, it’s set in Vegas (land of fun times), and honestly, it’s Emma Hart, so you can’t go wrong. I have to say right up front that the banter between our main characters just made the book so fantastic, it made for a great, fun read. The banter reminded me a lot of the banter you saw in Holly Woods Files, it was sometimes funny, always amusing, charged with sexual tension, occasionally heartwarming, basically my cup of tea.
Dahlia is our oh so lovely heroine, and when we meet her she is just back Vegas after losing her father. It’s time for her to go back to running the family business, a bar in Las Vegas that is book themed. Can we just stop right there are make unbelievably clear that if this bar existed near me I would be there all the time. I have to say that Emma did a great job with painting a picture of what the bar looks like, I mean I felt like I could picture the bar in my head, and it is just such a cool idea. I liked Dahlia a lot, she’s smart, well educated, clearly a good boss, seems like she was a good daughter, and she’s got the perfect amount of sassy and sarcasm, I liked how she held her own.
Our hero in the book is Damien, who is interesting to say the least. It’s clear from the beginning of the book that he’s a super hot guy, who has a ton of money, and the combination of these two things basically means he doesn’t really ever hear the word no very often. Sometimes this read as arrogant and jerk like, and then it read more as cocky and amusing, so quickly my opinion of him turned into something I enjoyed. It’s not really clear for a while why Damien has such a desire for the bar, and honestly it seems like not even he knows, its a combination of family and disbelief that she said no to him. Plus the sexual tension was guaranteed to keep him coming back for more.
I really loved reading these two, I mean I loved Holly Woods, and I have missed those two sooo much, and this felt like a fun, similar dynamic. I will say that there were a lot of moment in the first half of the book where I wanted these too to just pull it together and quite with the banter, I mean the sexual tension was killing even me! These two were so hot together, you knew when they finally got out of their own way that it was going to ignite the pages, and boy did they.
Emma of course has another great cast of secondary characters, all of who are fun to read. Although no one is more fun to read then Fergus, I mean he brings the name drama queen to a new extreme. I almost wish this was in movie format because I would love to see someone have to act out one of Fergus’s meltdowns. This book is hands down one of the funniest books I’ve read this year, and it’s just a fun ride. I would recommend this book to anyone who likes a hot and steamy rom com, especially if you enjoy Emma Hart’s writing.
