It is a place of decadence and what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas. Hopefully.

The princess car is very visible and that is the way Eve Kent likes it. Eve creates the princess experience for her young clients. She has her car all decked out in the princess theme and has others who help her from time to time including an Elvis impersonator and some Vegas showgirls. She has her brother, Rocker, who is part of the Black Dogs Motorcycle Club. Eve has virtually raised her brother after the family chaos. She is not happy her brother has joined a motorcycle club as their father dealt drugs and was part of many bad things. Her girlfriends want to find her a man for a quick lay so that she can release some tension.

Jaxon Brady, aka Rev, is part of the Hard Riders. He is ex-military as are many other members of the club but they do protect their own. He is instantly sexually attracted to Eve and is more than satisfied to show how he can please her even in a nightclub, when she is on a date, with another man. He has been sent to find Rocker as it is believed that he is involved in drug dealing. There is a lunch to show Eve that not all bikers are bad, protection from other groups and bad guys, and kidnapping to show her brother that they do mean business.

This book is written in the first person from both characters’ point of view. Eve speaks and Rev speaks. Initially I had difficulty figuring who was speaking and what was happening. The writing style is very much in the style of how someone might think and speak, and can appear to be choppy. This can be very disconcerting if you are not used to this style of writing, and I haven’t read many books in this manner.

There is instant sexual chemistry between the two main characters and they are ready, willing, and able at any time to have sex. There is less of the feelings and emotion until towards the end of the story. Readers should be aware that the sexual relationship takes precedence over the emotional relationship in this line. The emotion does come to the fore for the happy ever after but it is all about the instant attraction and sex.
