By Emma Hart
Vegas Nights Book 2
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.)
Believe it or not, Las Vegas police is not too keen on escorts who are paid for sex. It is up to Adrian to lead his team and conduct a cleanup of the street walkers and escorts. Only one problem... they are not that easy to spot or trap.
If you have been reading the Vegas Nights series, you already know all about the infamous Fox family. They are shrewd businessmen trying to shed their underground ties and cleanup their act with legitimate businesses. Perrie Fox is the pariah of that family. She was kicked out of the family for getting pregnant and not getting rid of the baby. With no skills and a child to support, she is now making a living as a paid escort. This is how her path crosses with Adrian's one fateful night.
These two characters have more in common than they realize when they first meet. They are both single parents of young children. Both have lost the other parent to a horrific death. With all the difficulties of raising a young child alone, their "jobs" are not the 9 to 5 type and consequently, it calls for a lot of stress and juggling to organize sitters and handle priorities.
This was a great story of survival and growth. For Perrie, going from a rich and pampered environment to being on her own and responsible for her child is a trial she survives by her wits. As her association with Adrian grows and evolves, they both are able to help each other cope. Lovely story. Loved the children!
