(Synopsis) 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...

Okay book lovers. Check this out. I'm about to tell you something about Sin that will make you want to read it immediately. Ready?

The main character owns... A BOOK-THEMED BAR. IN LAS VEGAS. *mic drop*

Actually, books play a big part in Sin, and I loved that Emma Hart made it that way. Dahlia's parents had a great love of books, so when they opened a bar in Vegas together, they called it The Scarlet Letter (SO brilliant) and made books the star. There's even a secret reading system that I loved learning about. This bar and it's book-loving owner are music for my soul. 

And then, of course, there's Damien Fox. In the beginning, he's incredibly infuriating and arrogant as he tries to strong-arm Dahlia into selling the bar to him. She very recently lost her father, and given that the bar was his along with her also deceased mother, it made me really angry at Damien that he seemingly didn't care one bit about any of that. He was willing to do whatever he had to in order to get Dahlia to sell. 

Thankful, Dahlia is an incredibly strong and independent woman. She can admit that Damien makes her knees weak and her panties catch fire, but when it comes to her bar, nothing he can say or do will sway her. I absolutely LOVED Dahlia for this.

I needed to be prepared for who this man really was because my gut was telling me I hadn't scratched the surface of Damien Fox.

Damien's frost starts to thaw with every new interaction with the fiery Dahlia. But, that's also a bit of an issue for him, since a family tragedy of his own has caused him to eschew things like emotions and love and compassion. He's afraid that when Dahlia finds out about what happened to his family that she won't want to be with him anymore, and being around her is the only light he knows.

He was Heaven and Hell and all the sins in between.

I've not read many Emma Hart books, but with every new one I get my hands on, her placement on my all-time favorites list moves higher and higher. She is an incredible writer, with a knack for brilliant, snarky humor. Her books are always incredibly sexy, totally engrossing, and at times laugh-out-loud funny. One of my favorite parts in Sin is when Damien gets his hands on an erotic book Dahlia is reading, and he starts reading it aloud. Emma Hart managed to poke a little fun at her own profession, while keeping it respectful and so freaking hilarious!

I'm already dying to get my hands on the next Vegas Nights book, since we've now met one half of the duo in that book. I can't wait to see what Emma Hart will give us next.

By day, New York Times and USA Today bestselling New Adult author Emma Hart dons a cape and calls herself Super Mum to two beautiful little monsters. By night, she drops the cape, pours a glass of whatever she fancies—usually wine—and writes books.

Emma is working on Top Secret projects she will share with her followers and fans at every available opportunity. Naturally, all Top Secret projects involve a dashingly hot guy who likes to forget to wear a shirt, a sprinkling (or several) of hold-onto-your-panties hot scenes, and a whole lotta love.

She likes to be busy—unless busy involves doing the dishes, but that seems to be when all the ideas come to life.
