Vixen in Vegas by Emma Nichols - Blog Tour & Giveaway






Blurb:

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.

My Review:

Vixen in Vegas picks up right where Sin At Sea left off, with Sin and BE preparing to meet up in Vegas and possibly break the rules of their arrangement. I have to say that Vixen in Vegas is a much more serious and intense story when compared to Sin at Sea. Whereas SaS was lighthearted, romantic and playful, ViV takes on a different approach. It's still playful and the romance is most definitely still present but the tone of the book is much more somber and tugs at your heart strings. It makes sense when you stop and think about it: In book 1 they were on vacation, it was like the honey moon phase of their "relationship" where everything is all peaches and cream. Once the cruise ship docked it was back to reality and everything they left behind. Unfortunately the seriousness of BE's reality was not something Sin expected, nor did I for that matter.

I was 100% completely invested in this story and could not put it down. I just had to know what was going to happen next and if there could possibly be a happily ever after. (I absolutely adore HEA's). There was a moment towards the end when I yelled "Oh my God!" resulting in funny looks from my co-worker, thus leading me to explain what was going on in the story, at which point she replied, "Oh my God!" See?? It wasn't just me! With a cast of characters as real and lovable as this group is you can't help but become emotional and share their joy, pain and anger. It's inevitable. You will get sucked in.

Emma Nichols has without a doubt become one of my new favorite authors. I seriously can't wait to read more of this amazing series!
