Genre: Contemporary Erotic Romance
Release Date: March 13, 2017
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.
4.5 Stars from Renee!
The story has betrayal, secrets, twists, naughty fun and heartbreak.
This is Shay and Leo story. Leo has wanted Shay since the day he hired her but is convinced that she will not be able to get past his activities in the Vault. He throws her into the deep end of the Vault before telling her what kind of club it is. After being accidently chased down by one of the club members she ends up in Leo’s arms. They discuss if she can handle the Vault and what goes with it. Can she truly handle the things that go on there and does she truly understand what actually goes on?
I was able to connect with the characters and the story was a good read. Look forward to learning more about Leo, Shay, Brute, and TJ. You don’t get a ton of background on any of the characters so I hope you get more in the next story. The scene in the Vault with Shay and Leo is naughty and fun. Can’t wait for more from all the players in this series.
I recommend this book and can’t wait for the next story from this author.
4.5 Stars from Brianna!
What an amazing and original new series from this author! I fell in love with this author's rock star series so I was super excited to get an erotic novel from her. This book was sweet, sexy, naughty, sinfully delicious, and had a few twists along the way. I devoured this book in one sitting.
This is Leo and Shay's story. Leo owns the club and restaurant, Shot Of Sin, along with his two best friends. They also run a very excusive club that is hidden and unknown named The Vault. When one of his head bartenders must miss work, he need a replacement. He absolutely does not want to send the one woman he can't get out of his head... Shot Of Sin's bar manager, Shay. Shay wants Leo and she lets him know it. After one passionate encounter, she fell in love with him then. But Leo will not give her the time of day. When she worms her way into working the bar at The Vault, she has no idea what is in store for her. When she realizes who Leo really is and what his desires are, will she still feel the same way about him? Can she be the woman Leo needs? Get ready for a sinfully sexy ride with Leo and Shay.
Leo... Leo... Leo...! What can I say other than his hot and cold mood swings gave me hip lash at times. And Shay, I wanted her to play hard to get at times. I suspected Leo was into some kink and he was but I don't think we have seen the last of these two. But I loved them together. Leo was so so so naughty. And Shay didn't take his crap and gave it right back to him. The foreplay and sexual tension between these two was suffocating at times. God I wanted to smack these two because Leo underestimated how strong Shay was. And that scene towards the end... EPIC!
I am still left with tons of questions after this book but I feel confident as the books go into his series, we will get more and more answers. The dynamic between the three friends was... interesting and I can't wait for that to be further explored.
I recommend this book and author!
