There’s just one thing missing from Gia Renyard’s life: sexual adventure. And the one man she’d like to have it with is her hot co-worker, Luke Monroe. If only company rules didn’t prohibit her from asking him out. So Gia comes up with a plan: make herself over into a fantasy seductress, follow Luke to a convention in Sin City, and have her way with him for one erotic weekend. The man will never even know who did him.
Everything is going according to plan—until Gia discovers that Luke is perfect for her outside the bedroom too. And suddenly she’s no longer content to let what happens in Vegas stay in Vegas…
What do you get when you push yourself out of the rut you’ve cornered yourself in? In this case you get a red-hot sexual relationship that ends up being so much more than sex.
Gia has always been the safe one. She’s got the good job, good apartment, good friends and in most respects a very good life but… She wants more and that more takes the form of having her sexual fantasies come to life. Her friends talk her in to going to Vegas to go after the man she wants for a weekend fling but what if she discovers she wants more? As she gets back to her real-life things don’t go the way she figured when she ends up having to work for the man of her dreams. As she tries to avoid him she can’t help but wonder what if he knew she was the one that he spent the amazing time in Vegas with. Would he still want her or would he just ignore her? I liked how she let herself walk on the wild side but I didn’t like how much she doubted herself even after the weekend. She’s strong and opinionated but has a major self-esteem issue that I think is handled well in this short read.
Luke is the golden boy who has always had things handed to him with little to no effort. He’s drawn to the woman in Vegas and finds himself pissed when she runs off without giving him a chance to spend more time with her. While they did have some amazing sex it was the fact that she pushed him and challenged him in ways he never expected that makes him continue to think of her even after she left. He decides to push himself at his office and is intrigued when Gia pushes his buttons and shows how valuable she is to his team all while avoiding him like he had the plague. This gets him more and more curious until … well.. I’m not going to give it away. I liked Luke and liked that even though he had things come to him easily he really didn’t like that. He wanted challenge but it took spending time with someone that pushed him to be more for him to realize how bad he had let it get. He wasn’t happy but didn’t know how to fix it.
This was a nice read with some good heat between the main pair at the beginning and a real bit of conflict/issues in the middle. Thanks to NetGalley.com and Harlequin for giving me the chance to read this in exchange for my honest review.
