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?

This is a great tale of growing up, taking risks, and falling in love. Vixen in Vegas is the story of Alysin. She is learning that her usual independent, do what you want style of life can’t last forever. She realizes this when she reunites with Ben. Alysin discovers part of loving someone means learning to grow up, and dealing with the issues that come with relationships. The only downfall is whether she can stay after learning the secret Ben is keeping from her.

I really enjoyed this book. It had a great start of Alysin learning her feelings for Ben can’t be ignored, or forgotten. Alysin quickly decides to take the plunge, taking a chance so she can start her life. Ben has a secret that might change that though. As you read this story it is easy to get lost in the setting, and romantic snippets of steamy scenes. The end does have a tragic twist, but it still brings you back to a happy ending. Emma Nichols did a great job taking the reader on the roller coaster of life, and love. She takes readers from beginning of a love story to the heart warming end readers will crave to read again and again.


Excerpt

“Wow. I really haven’t thought this through. We’ve never moved so quickly before. I mean, I have to call the realtor and have them find a renter for the house. I have to call PODS and get a few storage containers. Then there’s turning off all the utilities, returning the cable box, putting a hold on the mail.” I shook my head it was spinning so hard.

Chuckling, Jolie calmly pulled out her iPhone. “Let’s make a list,”she said simply.

I marveled at her, sounding so calm when I felt like my head might just freaking pop off. “Look at me. I’m a wreck. This isn’t me. What happened?” I raised my hand, exasperated and utterly disgusted with myself.

“Love,” she said seriously. “My baby finally found love.” With that declaration, she turned her attention to the new note she was creating.

Something in me calmed down. I could do this. We could do this. In a week, I’d be starting a new life in Vegas. If he kept his word, Mr. BE would be there, with me, a part of this new life. That…that was what had me all unhinged.

I don’t do love. Only now…with BE, maybe I did. All I knew for certain was that one week wasn’t enough. We had more story to tell, more life to live, more experiences to be had. He made me feel things in a way I never had before. He made me want things I had never wanted…like permanence. Shoot, I might even consider breaking all my rules for him.

For this man, I would settle down because I sure as hell didn’t feel like I was settling. He was everything I never knew I always wanted. We knew practically nothing about each other and yet…we made sense. Somehow, I didn’t care about his past. All I thought about now was our future. I just needed to survive this week. A lot of that was going to depend on the list.

Slowly, I inhaled and exhaled a few times. I set the cruise control on the SUV. Finally, when I felt more relaxed, I spoke to Jolie once more. “So, how is that list coming along?”

Nodding, she looked up at me and smiled widely. “We’re good. It’s all good. You know how this works. We’ve done this so many times before. It doesn’t even matter that we are on a time schedule. We’ve got this.”

Without saying another word, Jolie picked up my phone and started to place a call. “Here,” she said, “tell the nice lady about your house.”

Blowing out another breath, I reached for the phone and began the conversation that would start it all. We were really doing this. We had done this before, but this time…it was more real. This move was the scariest move ever.
