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?

My Opinion:

I loved it!

I had just finished the first book in the series and I sooo wanted to know what will happen to Sin and her good-looking stranger.

In SIN AT SEA - Alysin and her best friend Jolie go on a carribbean cruise to have a little quiet time to decide where their lives should take them next. That's where Sin and Mr. BE meet for the first time - they spend a very sexy week together, pretending to be married - without telling each other their names and life stories! But at the end of the week - they have fallen in love for real and they promise to meet again in Las Vegas - a week from now.

That's exactly where book 2 starts - with Aylsin and Jolie driving home to North Carolina from the cruise ship. After cleaning their apartments, renting them out and packing up their belongings they decide to drive to Las Vegas. In those few days that Sin is at home - she has lots of doubts ...are they really doing the right thing? Will Mr. BE end up being just another jerk who will leave her?
But a phone call from Mr. Be calms her down - and now she can't wait to leave!

 What she didn't know is that Jolie was talking to Mr. Be behind Sin's back to organize a few surprises!
When the girls arrive at the Venetian Hotel - they even end up in the Penthouse!

And then the time comes to see HIM again!

and that's also the time where I stop telling you any more about the story ☺ I don't want to spoil anything!

Let's just say there will be very romantic and erotic moments!

We'll take a helicopter into the canyons

We'll visit a Winery in California.

Something will happen here:

We will CRY a lot!! Well, I cried a lot ☺

It was really a wonderful book. I expected something completely different though. The Cover picture and the previous book in the series led me to believe it would be just another sexy-in-vegas romance. But it was sooo much more. It was sexy, yes - but it was also SAD and heart-stoppingly MOVING! It totally surprised me. I did have some tiny suspicions about some things that happened and were said in the first book - but - I did not see all of that coming!!! ☺

Maybe the cover pic should be changed. (that lady looks like a Las Vegas burlesque stripper - and that's soo not the message in this book!)

The only things that bothered me - the sex scenes could've been a bit longer ;) and the author uses SO and SEE soooo often at the beginning of a sentence - I guess it's her local accent - but it got on my nerves!

I can't tell you any more about why I loved it so much - it would spoil everything - let's just say, once you're in the middle of the book (47% or so) you won't be able to stop reading!☺


oh and if you loved the whole crying-while-reading thing - you should read Me before you by Jojo Moyes - it's a bit different than this one - with a few similarities though - but you will really C.R.Y.



 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.
