Vixen in Vegas by Emma Nichols with REVIEW


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?


The water was just starting to boil when my phone rang.  I rushed to the bedroom because…well, how often does a phone ring jut after 4am?  It could be an emergency.  It could be a prank call.  Or, according to the picture that glowed on my screen, it could be Jolie calling to cheer me up.  That warmed me instantly.

“Hey, girl,” I said, all out of breath from my sprint for the phone.  You may recall, I am not a jogger.

“Hey, sexy,” he breathed into the phone.

It took me a minute to process just whom I was speaking to.  Then the tears started.  Actually, it was more of a waterfall effect.  Then came the snot.  “Oh my god!  It’s YOU!  And you’re on Jolie’s phone!”  I started sniffling while I wiped away the tears and tried my best to hold myself together.

“Yes, babe.  It’s me.  Jolie called me.  It’s a three way.  You know.  Again,” he joked.

I giggled.

“Are you crying?”  He asked concerned.

“No,” I lied.  “Must be a cold.”

“Good, I don’t want you crying, especially when I can’t be there to comfort you.”  He spoke soothingly into the phone and it reminded me of all those nights snuggled in his arms, talking, and making love. “What’s going on?  One day apart and you’ve already decided not to meet me?”  He asked.

My chest constricted.  It hurt so much.  My voice caught in my throat.  “I don’t know how to do this.  I’ve never done this before,” I whispered hoarsely.

“What?  You’ve never made plans a week in advance?  You’ve never moved?”  He asked questions he already knew the answers to just to make me think.

“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 conversation was what I needed.  Jolie had found the perfect way to soothe my soul and settle my nerves.  No wonder she was my BFF.  “Hmmm.  I suppose I could promise you,” I began playfully, “but what good are promises with you?  Here we are, talking on the phone…”

“I’ll have you know I thought this through.  I’ve broken no rules.You don’t have my name or my contact information.  Jolie does.  So there.”  He chuckled at his own cleverness.

I couldn’t help but laugh.  “And you think this information is safe with Jolie?  You think I couldn’t get it from her if I wanted?”  I asked.

His deep sexy voice responded, “Yes, that is precisely what I think.  Jolie loves you.  Jolie even seems to be rather fond of me and she thinks we make a phenomenal couple.  So let’s stick to our rules for now.  And when I see you on Saturday, you’ll discover what a big, bad rule breaker I am.  Just wait for me until then.  If one of us needs to, we have Jolie to reach out for us.”  He was silent for a moment.  So was I as I considered all he had said.  “I love you, baby,” he said.  “Saturday, I’ll be waiting for you.”

“Saturday,” I murmured.  “I’m going to rock your world.”

“Babe,” he said seriously, “you already have.”

Vixen in Vegas

Vixen in Vegas picks up where Sin at Sea left off, so if you haven't read Sin at Sea you need to start there. 
----THIS IS YOUR Last Chance to turn around and read Sin at Sea, if u read further you may ruined the first book!!!--------LAST CHANCE

Alysin "Sin" Nixon has decided to break all the rules and meet up with Mr. BE in Vegas. She still doesn't know his real name or where he lives or what he does, but she knows she wants to. Sin is use to running away from things, not toward them. Sin and her BFF Jolie have decided to move to Vegas, and this is the last time for Jolie. Jolie is tired of not having roots and tells Alysin that Mr. BE is not the one to mess this up on. Alysin is excited and scared of all that is happening. What if he doesn't show?

Mr BE has big secrets of his own, his name is the least of them. When Sin finds out what those secrets are, how many will it take before instinct takes over and she runs?

First let me give a Shout out to Miss Jolie. She is the epitome of a TRUE friend. She has followed Alysin all over the place to make her friend happy.    She knows everything about Sin and excepts her for her. We all should be so lucky to have a friend like that.  Jolie really helped Sin and BE fight there mutual fear of what was happening.  She knew they were good for each other and nurtured that aspect. 

I can honestly say that I did not see this coming. True to Sin at Sea, the sex was hot and steamy.  Mr. BE, aka, Benjamin Everly is everything you could ask for in a man and more. You really want nothing more than to like him, and Alysin more than likes him. This story had me in knots and I knew there would be a catch, but didn't see the curve ball I was thrown (sorry, no spoilers, you have to get there on your own.)  I had to put the book down a few times to collect my thoughts and I'm not going to lie, I debated not reading the end. Alas I read it and you should too. 

I will say that I would love to see where Emma Could take this story, maybe a spin-off with Jolie, but I also think the story could stop here and I would be ok with that. 

Beware this is roller coaster ride,  I laughed, got hot and bothered, mad, shocked, and if you don't cry at some point, well you must be dead inside (just kidding...kinda). 

With all that being said, read the series, I loved it and I hope you will too.
