Throw back a shot of pure sin.
Leo Petrova has a dirty secret that’s about to get blown wide open. The exclusive VIP area hidden beneath his night club, Shot of Sin, is short staffed a bartender. The only available replacement is Shay—his temptation, his distraction—the sole woman he refuses to escort down the secret staircase. She has no clue about the private adult club that lies beneath her feet and he’d prefer to keep it that way. The Vault of Sin is the only place he can let his sexual proclivities run wild and he’s learned the hard way that Shay is too virtuous to be comfortable in the erotic environment.
Shay Porter is curious as to why her boss, the king of mixed messages, seems almost desperate to keep her from discovering what’s on the other side of the guarded door at the back of the building. But she’s never backed down from a challenge before. Sliding into Leo’s arms and this new world of carnal exploration is addictive yet frightening. She could lose her job, her self-respect, and her heart.
Exposing a vanilla woman to a sorbet lifestyle isn’t something Leo’s business partners approve of. Secrets are at stake. Friendships, too. And through it all, neither one of them can ignore the wicked taste of sin threatening to tear it all apart.
Warning: This sex club does not carry the government’s stamp of approval. Contains devilish debauchery, delightful deviance, and dancing on the edge of the darkest of sexual desires.
Shayna “Shay” Porter happens to work for Leo Petrova. They work at a place that if I knew the address I’d be packing my bags. You know the author is doing something right when the reader wants to pack up and travel to where the story is taking place. This story seems more believable, more real; because our couple has reservations and questions just like any normal couple would.
One thing I loved was the banter that Ms. Summers has created between our two main characters – had me chuckling. That’s just one more thing she does right. She knows what it will take to get her readers to laugh. This was why I loved how good Shay was at baiting Leo. It was that baiting that had me so captivated by this story – had to see what Leo planned to do.
Once I was caught in this author’s web it was very hard to break free. That moment didn’t come until I read the preview of the next book in this series. Our author also created a couple of secondary characters that left me wanting to know more about them – great incentive to follow what’s starting out to be a great series. Lucky for me that Union of Sin just came out. Now the heat level is pretty high so if you like your books really steamy you may just want to check out this book.
