Blog Tour: Vixen in Vegas by Emma Nichols

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?

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I'm conflicted...*scratches her head*
Where did all this emotion come from?

Okay, let me explain...I absolutely LOVED book one Sin at Sea. It was the perfect summer novella to me. Super steamy with a fun and quirky heroine and her best friend sidekick. AND lets not forget the incredibly sexy Mr. BE.

BUT Vixen in Vegas was not the lighthearted fun read that I was expecting it to be. It was very emotional, tragic even. So, after I realized that I was not going to get what I had originally envisioned for Vixen in Vegas, I decided to just go with the story and I really liked it.

In order to meet Mr. BE in Vegas, Sin has to get all her affairs sorted out first. Not to mention drive across the country to get there. This adventure is much different than the first time around. There is so much at stake this time. But what's most at stake is her heart.

Mr. BE is super romantic and lovable but he has a BIG secret that will change Sin's life and make her want to run. Which as we all know is her specialty. Jolie was still very real this time around. She told it exactly how it was. There was no sugar coating anything for Sin's sake. I appreciated her a lot, but at times I felt badly for her. She kind of gets dragged into these adventures that are starting to wear on her. She just wants to settle down in one place.

In Vixen in Vegas we are concentrated more on the story aspect and not the sex like it was in Sin at Sea. That is not to say that there weren't steamy scenes, just not as many.

Overall, Vixen in Vegas was a heartfelt story of change, growth, trust, and love. A perfect read if you are looking for an emotional story with some good steamy scenes.

The water was jus starting to boil when my phone rang. I rushed to the bedroom because...well, how often does the phone ring just 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."
