Review: Vanilla and Vice

Vanilla and Vice Vanilla and Vice by Tabatha Vargo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Will she do ANYTHING to avoid becoming a Vegas vagabond??

This story based mostly in the Empire Sevens resort and casino in Las Vegas is one of starting from nothing and surviving. But what will you do to live - steal, nudity, sex, murder???? Story unfolds brilliantly in front of your eyes as you turn the pages, from the casino noises to the dark bars to the drunken Vegas party goers. As with the past Tabatha and Melissa books I read, the written is seamless. And now a bit about the story...

Eden has escaped her deplorable living conditions only to run out of gas, literally, before getting to her aunt. The Vegas luck is on her side and one of her aunts co-workers rescues her. Now she has a real shot at doing something with the rest of her life. But her aunts boss has other ideas. For Zander, Eden is the ultimate challenge to his addiction. He knows he can't be near her, but he also knows he can't live without Eden's aunt. How will these two survive each other. Will her very vanilla demeanor be the vice he just can't resist?

Favorite passages:
- Even if it was against my morals a tiny bit. I was a beggar. And beggars couldn’t be choosy.
- Instead, she went in that locker room like a fucking fighting champ and came out looking so goddamn delicious that I almost threw myself off the wagon at that moment.
- I knew because I watched her regularly instead of sitting behind my desk doing actual fucking work.

Note: I was given a free copy and voluntarily chose to review this book.
