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?


“Wow.  I really haven’t thought this through.  We’ve never moved so quickly before.  I mean, I have to call the realtor and have them find a renter for the house.  I have to call PODS and get a few storagecontainers.  Then there’s turning off all the utilities, returning the cable box, putting a hold on the mail.”  I shook my head it was
spinning so hard.

Chuckling, Jolie calmly pulled out her iPhone.  “Let’s make a list,”she said simply.

I marveled at her, sounding so calm when I felt like my head might just freaking pop off.  “Look at me.  I’m a wreck.  This isn’t me.  What happened?”  I raised my hand, exasperated and utterly disgusted with myself.

“Love,” she said seriously.  “My baby finally found love.”  With that declaration, she turned her attention to the new note she was creating.

Something in me calmed down.  I could do this.  We could do this.  In a week, I’d be starting a new life in Vegas.  If he kept his word, Mr. BE would be there, with me, a part of this new life.  That…that waswhat had me all unhinged.

I don’t do love.  Only now…with BE, maybe I did.  All I knew for certain was that one week wasn’t enough.  We had more story to tell, more life to live, more experiences to be had.  He made me feel things in a way I never had before.  He made me want things I had never wanted…like permanence.  Shoot, I might even consider breaking all my rules for him.

For this man, I would settle down because I sure as hell didn’t feel like I was settling.  He was everything I never knew I always wanted.  We knew practically nothing about each other and yet…we made sense.  Somehow, I didn’t care about his past.  All I thought about now was our future.  I just needed to survive this week.  A lot of that was going to depend on the list.

Slowly, I inhaled and exhaled a few times.  I set the cruise control on the SUV.  Finally, when I felt more relaxed, I spoke to Jolie once more.  “So, how is that list coming along?”

Nodding, she looked up at me and smiled widely.  “We’re good.  It’s all good.  You know how this works.  We’ve done this so many times before.  It doesn’t even matter that we are on a time schedule.  We’ve got this.”

Without saying another word, Jolie picked up my phone and started to place a call.  “Here,” she said, “tell the nice lady about your house.”

Blowing out another breath, I reached for the phone and began the conversation that would start it all.  We were really doing this.  We had done this before, but this time…it was more real.  This move was the scariest move ever.

My Review:

We pick up the story shortly after the end of Sin at Sea. Alysin & Jolie are picking up their lives and heading out to Vegas to meet up with Mr. BE. Alysin is scared to a take a chance but with Jolie's encouragement and a little help from BE himself she throws caution to the wind and heads for the unknown... but will it blow up in her face? Mr. BE is sweet, sexy and generous, but he has secrets... secrets that could make Sin run again. Will she be strong enough to stick around???

I really loved this book. I liked the anoymous erotic feel of Sin at Sea but this follow up was so much more. We get to know both Sin & BE on a deeper level. Oh it is still just as hot and steamy as before, but this one will touch your heart too. Alysin grows up in this story. She has to step out of her comfort zone and she has to start putting the people she loves happiness ahead of her own. This is definitely something she is not use to. Sin is a runner. When the going gets tough she simiply picks up and moves on without looking back. Can she stay this time even with the risk of having her heart broken?

Can I also say how much I adore Jolie. She is a straight shooter who brings the "real" to Sin. I love her candor and her undying love for her friend. Every woman needs a Best friend like Jolie... ok maybe not quite as close a friend... but you get my drift. I wouldn't mind a little more story for her *hint hint* Emma ;)

What made her decide to be an erotica author?


How else was she going to parlay her two favorite past times into a career?

Emma is single and loving it. Like her first character, Alysin, Sin for short, she doesn't believe in settling or in settling down. She loves to indulge in her passions whenever the mood strikes and enjoys keeping all of life's cliche moments spicy.

Known for her sense of humor, Emma surrounds herself with friends whose antics often become the source of book fodder. Her ideal situation would be to explore the Caribbean while writing. She pursues that dream daily.
