Last Chance (Vegas Heat Novel, Book 3) by Erika Wilde

As the Executive Casino Hostess for The Onyx in Las Vegas, Valerie Downing is always on the lookout for the night's biggest winners. When she spots a man―one of the sexiest she's ever laid eyes on―generating huge excitement at the craps table, she knows she's in luck. Her goal: To make sure the high rollers stay at her hotel, and that any further gambling is invested right back into the casino. His aim: To enjoy some other "perks" that Valerie might have to offer…

Turns out Chase Pierson is already a VIP guest who happens to be working with Valerie's boss on a top-secret mission for the Reliance Group―one for which she too has been recruited because of her psychic abilities. But Valerie, bold and gorgeous as she is, is first and foremost a professional. No fraternizing with Onyx clientele is her motto…except this hard-bodied, infuriatingly charming client is tempting her to break all the rules.

LAST CHANCE contains light paranormal elements (heroine has psychic abilities)

Last Chance, book three of the Vegas Heat series, is a Contemporary Romance & another exciting combination of hot seduction & mystery thriller in one.  Valerie & Chase are thrown together to find the missing piece needed to solve a puzzle, only to find themselves fitting more than well together.   They will go on a once in a lifetime adventure from Nevada, to California, to Illinois, to Florida & back again where they will discover they have more in common with each other than they ever could have imagined.  

Told in third person, from dual perspectives, this is a hot romance & intriguing mystery thriller.  Like its characters, this is a fun & adventurous story line, separate & different, but complimentary to the first two books in the series.  It has everything from lost treasure to love!  The story unfolds at a perfect pace & doesn't slow from beginning to surprisingly twisty end.  

Valerie is a clairvoyant, which is often “more of a curse than a blessing--”.  She is confident, yet cautious when it comes to who she trusts...keeping her emotions close.  Enter Chase, with a rare ability of his own – he is charismatic, confident & exudes an easygoing charm, all packed into “a hard body made for all kinds of sin”.  I love the emotional connection these characters share, not to mention the sexy innuendos, banter & the “Holy…wow,” seductive chemistry.  The dynamic of close-knit, family-like ensemble of the cross-over characters, is wonderfully sweet & endearing.  Ultimately a story of heart’s desire & kindred spirits – a must read!

I’ve enjoyed the entire series so much - I’m really hoping that this will not be the last of the Vegas Heat series – come on Erika, give us one more for Caleb & Skye!!!
