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.)
“She was off-limits. Untouchable. We were on opposite sides. I upheld the law while she flaunted it.”
“I wanted her. Wildly. Crazily. Desperately. It was an insatiable desire that would only be cooled by the heat of her body against mine. Perrie Fox was destined to be mine. There were no two ways about it. She was mine. End of.”
Emma Hart, you continue to slay me! With your smart writing, brilliant story-lines, tough women and sexy men, my heart doesn’t stand a chance.
When we first met up with Perrie in SIN, I just knew her story was going to rock my socks and boy did it ever. Lust is the perfect opposites attract, riches to rags story. Perrie’s life is more complicated than most could imagine. At one time, she had it all, but all it took was one moment to rip everything she knew away. She never imagined this path that her life has taken her, but in the end, what would anyone do to support their child?? Detective Potter has a lot of demons in his life. He’s spent years trying to right the many wrongs. He never imagined his path leading him to Perrie. His job is put to put hookers out of work and get them off the streets, but there is just something about Perrie that makes him question things; like maybe she deserves a second chance. When chance brings this unlikely pair together, they may soon discover they have more in common than they initially thought…..
Lust was a fabulous read that certainly knocked me off my feet. I mean a cop and a hooker!! How could you possibly go wrong? I just knew this story was destined for awesomeness. Perrie is smart, determined, independent, feisty and sexy as hell. She is an amazing mom who would do anything for her daughter. She isn’t proud of the path that life has put her on, but she is determined to give her kid the best life she can. Detective Potter couldn’t have entered her life at a better time. Adrian Potter is hotter than hot. He’s tattooed and bossy and with a set of handcuffs, your imagination can’t help but run wild. He is a man that knows and lives the law. He is dedicated to his job and is trying to raise his son the best he can. He never planned on a woman like Perrie, but wild horses couldn’t keep him away from her. Perrie and Adrian are opposite in every way. Perrie is forbidden and Adrian knows he should stay away, but when these two are together, they are like magnets, you can’t possibly tear them apart. With scorching hot chemistry and an undeniable passion, it will only be a matter of time before Perrie and Adrian give into to the fire building between the two of them..
Lust is a fantastic addition to the Vegas Nights series. I was pulled into Adrian and Perrie’s story right away. It was impossible to not fall head over heels in love with Perrie and Adrian. I loved how real and complicated they were, but at the same time, I could totally understand where they were coming through and why they did the things that they did. I loved watching Perrie and Adrian’s relationship grow and seeing them fall in love. They made me laugh. They frustrated me and had me yelling at my kindle quite a few times. But, in the end, they left me with a huge smile on my face and kept me begging for more.
Emma Hart has once again knocked it out of the park and I can’t wait to get my hands on the whatever she plans on writing next!
