Review :: Sin :: Emma Hart


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...

(SIN is book one of the Vegas Nights series. Each book in this series is a standalone novel.)

I honestly didn't love how this book started. I hated how in-your-face the alpha was right off the bat. I have never, in any real life situation heard a man say what Damien said to Dahlia in their first meeting. I get it. I should suspend belief. I should push aside reality and accept that Emma Hart writes some amazing alpha leads. But I had a really hard time doing that here. He was supposed to be professional. He was there to talk about one thing and ended up saying what he did. That irked me for a while. It irked me that the heroine just accepted it and wasn't offended more than she was. 

But I kept reading.

I'm glad I did. I ended up really enjoying this book. I liked the slow burn of their little relationship. Well, as slow as Emma writes. I liked how damaged Damien was and how he came to cope with it with Dahlia's help - without even realizing that she was helping him. 

Of course the sexy times were extremely sexy. Like, whew, Kindle on FIRE kind of sexy. 

But the characters ended up growing on me. Obviously, I didn't want to like Damien at all. Arrogant, brash, foot-in-mouth, and annoying. After that first encounter, I would have slapped him with a restraining order. But, as I said, I got past it as the progressed. He softened. Dahlia was a surprise. Strong, assertive, knows what she wants. She never faltered - not once - from her position. I think most would have caved. 

Overall, though, I'd highly encourage checking out this novel! It was actually super fun to read. 

Four stars.
