Take a Chance (Vegas Heat Novel, Book 2) by Erika Wilde


The son of a con-artist, Sean O'Brien learned the hard way that living by your own rules comes with a price. After a brief time behind bars, Sean is now ready to live an honest life, and pay for his past mistakes, and he's fortunate enough that a member of The Reliance Group sees Sean's potential for good and gives him a job at the Onyx Casino. Zoe Russo has met all types of men on the Vegas strip. But when Sean pays a visit to her boutique, she's certain her luck has changed for the better. They share an immediate, irresistible attraction, and for the first time in her life she's found a man she thinks she can trust. But when Zoe stumbles onto the truth about Sean and his reasons for pursuing her, she can't help but question everything they'd shared. Are his feelings for her real, or has she been a fool once again? Until now, nothing has prepared her for the thrill and risk of taking a chance on love.

My Review
Take a Chance, book two of the Vegas Heat series, is a Contemporary Romance & another exciting combination of hot seduction & criminal thriller in one.  Sean & Zoe, meet in the hustle bustle of the Las Vegas business district & the results are an immediate. mutual. attraction.  Together they'll work to solve a mystery that has a very personal connection for both of them & discover their pasts are far more intertwined then they ever could have imagined.  

Told in third person, from dual perspectives, this is a super hot romance & intriguing criminal thriller that is not only well written on both accounts, but also includes a secondary, equally amazing story line.  More appreciation for author Erika Wilde & her ability to include sensitive subjects in a emotional, heartfelt, real-edge way. Full of sultry, sexy trysts, the story unfolds at the perfect pace & doesn't slow from beginning to it's oh-so twisty, oh-my-goodness end.  

Can you tell I really enjoyed this book?  These characters are "fun and flirty, and very, very sexy."  Sean is a devastatingly handsome, bad-boy ex-scam artist with above board bullshitting skills & the natural ability to make women feel weak in the knees.  He's "more sinful than any pastry or candy" & looking to ease some guilt from his past & settle a long-overdue score...qualities, that make his character super yummy.  Zoe is working to build a name for herself as a designer & isn't the kind of girl to rely on any man, sophisticated & successful, she is such a delightfully daring, open, sweet & strong woman trying desperately to resist Sean's charms... "Why can't you kiss like a Saint Bernard and look like a troll?". The kind of woman who grows to believe the words of wisdom from a fortune cookie "Sometimes the object of the journey is not the end, but the journey itself."  What in the world does that mean you ask?  READ THIS BOOK

Although each book in the Vegas Heat series can be read as a standalone, I'm looking forward to book three, Last Chance coming soon.
