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.)
Sassy, Sexy, Sensual, Stimulating, Emma Hart has done it again with Lust.
I adored these characters.
Adrian; Sexy hot cop and single dad.
Perrie; Prostitute and single mum.
Two people on opposite sides of the law whose worlds collide with a bang in more ways than one.
I loved Perrie's character, a woman fallen from grace, she's sassy, a survivor and a woman with backbone. Perrie was in the previous book Sin briefly, Damien and Dhalia's story, she is the estranged sister of Damien. Perrie has a reverse Cinderella story, from riches to rags, rejected by her family and takes to the streets to provide for her daughter.
Adrian is part of a task force to prevent prostitution in Vegas. The night he meets Perrie at a bar she is tricked into thinking he is a potential client. Arrested and in the back of a police car Perrie breaks down at the thought of her daughter alone. This tough cop with a kindred spirit see's a single mum doing what she can to survive and let's her go with conditions.
"Perrie Fox was destined to be mine. There were no two ways about it. She was mine. End of."
I loved the plot, what unfolds and how the relationship with Perrie and Adrian develops. It's a slow burn romance from hate on Perrie's side to lovers and as you delve deeper into Lust the chemistry is sizzling.
I didn't expect resistance at every corner. Resistance that came with the sexiest, sassiest mouth I'd ever encountered and the hottest goddamn body to ever cross my path.
"selfish is something I'm not. Honest, yes. And I'm being honest when I tell you that if I pushed you against the wall behind you and kissed you until you couldn't' breath, you'd like me a lot"
I loved the interaction with the kids too as Zac and lola become good friends they do what they can to make their mum and dad fall in love the little schemers made me laugh out loud so many times.
Lust is brilliantly balanced read with everything I love in a romance, hotness, humour, a great plot, likeable characters, intriguing backstory's and the icing on the cake a perfect ending.
Told in dual first persons pov and can be read as a standalone.
Another addictive read by Emma hart and I am so looking forward to the next book Miss Fix it that has me squealing with delight it looks so good.

Damien Fox lived up to his name.
Cunning, sly, and dangerous, fifty percent of Vegas’ strip clubs were his.
Whatever he wanted, money, attention, women, he got.
And now he wanted to buy my bar, no matter the cost.
I wanted him to go to hell on a first-class ticket.
He played a dirty game, and I followed his rules. I let him think he would win.
Despite our differences, it was clear to see that we were no more than two broken hearts colliding in the darkness.
Closed off, sexy, and holding a pain that would crush a lesser man, he was the ultimate sin.
One I couldn’t deny myself, even though I knew better than to trust a fox...
