BLOG TOUR: Vixen in Vegas by Emma Nichols


Thanks to Stories & SWAG Tours for hosting this blog tour. I'm sharing my review of Vixen in Vegas by Emma Nichols. Happy reading!

*****************************

Summary:

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?

Thoughts:

I enjoyed book 1 and was really looking forward to book 2. This one had a lot of good things about it, but some frustrating ones as well. It’s almost incomparable to Sin at Sea because this one is longer and MUCH more emotional. The focus isn’t on the steam nearly as much, though don’t worry there’s still plenty of that too, but on the unfolding drama as they finally get to know each other.

The details of her moving made for a long read, even if there were a couple interactions in there that were fun or integral to the storyline. Alysin goes through a LOT of self doubt, especially at the beginning and towards the middle which made me wonder where the confidence she exuded in the first book went and honestly made me really not like her for a portion of the book. It got better, but man it was a little difficult for a while and I really felt for her friend Jolie and thought BE could do better there for a bit.

The plot was very predictable in many ways, but was still compelling once you got past Alysin’s bad reactions. It was actually a pretty melodramatic read, but kept me interested with the heat and with the tenderness that finally shows through (though BE was always sweet and amazing !). I will warn you though, the ending is both tragic and endearing.

Bottom Line:

Vixen in Vegas is a bittersweet read that you won’t want to miss. With a hero that will win your heart, a heroine that faces her greatest fears for love, and blazing heat, it’s sure to leave you satisfied.
