New York Times bestselling author, Emma Hart, brings together two polar-opposite single parents in the second book in the sinfully sexy Vegas Nights series.
Detective Adrian Potter had a lot to answer for. I didn’t care that he was tasked with shutting down the city’s most prolific hookers.
I cared that he was stopping me from providing for my daughter.
He didn’t care.
Not at all.
Until I broke down in the backseat of his car… And he let me go.
Adrian was a single parent, too. He knew how hard I had it. At least, he thought he did.
He had a job. He had people who cared. He didn’t know just how lucky he was.
My name is Perrie Fox.
I was a whore of the highest value.
Until Detective Adrian Potter.
Until the tattooed, redemption-seeking detective entered my life, looking for his fairytale.
The cop and the hooker.
Happily ever fucking never.
You’ve met one Fox sibling.
Now meet the other…
(LUST is book two of the Vegas Nights series. While it is a standalone, the time frame does overlap with scenes in the previous book, SIN. You can, however, read LUST without reading SIN.
With each book that I read of Emma Harts I fall a little more in love with her style of writing and penchant for writing strong female characters that make me want to pump my fist in the air!!
They leave me feeling empowered and unstoppable! Seriously these women are inspiring, did I mention that Perrie Fox is a classy whore trying to make ends meet while raising her daughter in Las Vegas? Yes, even Perrie’s character is inspiring, which only speaks of the incredible talent and bad assery (yes that’s a word!) that Emma Hart is able to bring to the table with her writing.
Perrie Fox doesn’t have it as easy as everyone thinks. She has the Fox name but not the Fox bank account. She’s selling small pieces of her soul every time she has to walk out her door to sell herself to the greedy and selfish men of Las Vegas , just to take care of her daughter. Perrie is a strong, sarcastic, no-nonsense woman, raising her daughter on her terms and doing just fine until Detective Adrain Potter came into the picture. Adrian is able to offer Perrie the out she’s been looking for, but at what cost she’s not sure.
Detective Adrian Potter on the outside is a bad ass detective but on the inside he’s just a single dad trying to make it in life. Adrian was a walking mystery to me throughout the book until my aha moment. I loved his strong yet unsure character. I love that he never tried to stomp on Perrie’s strong character or belittle what she did for a living even though he knew there was a better way for her to earn. He’s the epitome of a strong male who is confident even when being brought down by a hellion like Perrie.
Perrie and Adrian together are hotter than a whore in church…. Too Punny? Oh, well I tried. Anyways this couple has a chemistry so hot you can’t help but feel it.
To say I loved this book would be an understatement, I loved the hell out of this book and highly recommend that you pick it up and read the love story of the detective and the hooker….
