Vanilla and Vice


**PLEASE NOTE: This book is much longer than 22 pages. It’s more like 220 pages.

A recovering sex addict meets an irresistible virgin.

My sick obsession with domination and sex had become an addiction, and I was no longer willing to be a slave to it. Now, I’m six months sex free, and I haven’t tied a woman up in five.
I’ve never felt more powerful in my life.
Then Eden Vaughn got a job at Empire Sevens and turned my newfound control on its head.
She makes me feel weak—testing my restraint—silently begging me to show her how deep my addiction runs. I can’t have her sort of temptation in my casino, and I’ll do whatever it takes to get her to quit.
I’m into all things dark and filthy, but innocence is my kryptonite.
She’s virtuous and vanilla, and vanilla is my VICE.

My Review: 4 Stars 

What a read! 

Eden Vaughn is a young woman just trying to survive. When she makes the decision to leave her situation and go live her her aunt in Vegas, she had no idea what she was getting herself into.

Zander Hale is a recovering addict. Recovering from what? You have to read to find that part out. When Zander first sees Eden, he knows that it is not going to work. There is no way she can work for him, in his hotel and casino, and him not touch her. He can’t touch her. That would undo all his progress.

“She’s everything I desire. Everything my addiction needs. Blonde. Beautiful. And so fucking innocent even the sinful lights of Vegas refuse to reflect on her flawless skin.”

Zander is determined to make Eden quit, he won’t fire her because of her aunt.

How much and Eden take before it’s too much?

Zander and Eden play a cat and mouse game. But what happens when the cat catches the mouse? Will the mouse survive or will that cat break the mouse?

This was a great story. There was a lot of angst in this story and a lot of back and forth. You need to prepare yourself because you won’t see the ending coming!

Warning: This book ends in a cliffhanger but it is going to be soooo worth it!!

I find it hard to sum up my life in a paragraph, but I’ll try.

Reading has always been a passion for me and writing is as instinctive as breathing. Every inhale is an idea; every exhale a creation. Flutter, The Discover Series was my debut release and since then I have written a contemporary romance, The Edge of Darkness. The only thing I do better than writing? Making beautiful, sassy and independent, girls. My daughters will always be my greatest accomplishment, my biggest fans and my every inspiration. I live, breath and would die for them! I’ve been married to one of the greatest men in my life for 7 years and I love him more than chocolate (you know shit just got real :), Justin Timberlake and Friday’s. Without him my website would be a mess and I would probably be paying more taxes than I should. He is a jack of many trades and this is just my opinion but I like to think besides my daughters, I’m his second biggest accomplishment. (Does anyone else hear a horn tooting?)
I was born in Denver, Colorado -but I will always think of sunny Arizona as my home. I don’t have a big family, but I’m close with my sister, brother & my mom. My mom is my hero, my inspiration, and I couldn’t have asked for a more amazing person to be raised by. She has supported me throughout this crazy adventure and I’m lucky to have her on my side!
I will never be able to thank every reader, every blogger or every author who has helped me in one or a million ways since I published but I will try every chance I get. Y’all are the reason I am here and every comment, every message, every review makes me feel like I have a reason to be. So to the moon and back, THANK YOU!
Okay, so this was a little longer than a paragraph.
