What can a thirty-eight year old cop with super hearing expect from life? It certainly wasn’t a kidnapping when she left her groom waiting at the altar to help whoever it was that was screaming. Now Hope Daniels uptight mother is going to be on her case constantly. Well, she will be just as soon as the hunkaliscious man who did the deed lets her go after having her mind erased about the secret BDSM club he owns and runs.
Having the mind of a cop erased (her memories of his club, to be exact) is not what Dorian Markoff would consider his usual way of dealing with his problems. But officer Hope is not his usual fare in any form; after all, vanilla is not his favorite flavor. The major setback comes in the form of the “mind-wiper” being out of town, so it’s off to Vegas and the wackiest ride of both their lives set into motion.
I loved the absolute tongue-in-cheek way these two wonderful authors delivered up their amazing foray into this vanilla and kink tale of two individuals who find out that maybe they aren’t as tame or exotic as they thought they were. With a lively sense of humor, keen wit, and some really erotic “simple” sex, both Ms. Diaz and Ms. Chase have shown they are not only good authors in an individual endeavor, but even better as a duet. This is definitely one of the most fun reads I’ve had in a bit.
