The City of Sin holds more than secrets.
He doesn’t remember me.
But, I remember him.
The mysterious and brooding Jay McCall.
His touch. His kiss. His hands on me.
It’s burned into my mind.
The one incredible night we shared.
But, that was before…
Before I lost my brother.
Before grief held me hostage.
He’s back, and it has nothing and everything to do with me.
The secrets he’s keeping are tangled with my brother’s death.
My heart. My body.
At war over a man I barely know.
A man who knows the truth.
He wants me to trust him.
I want to.

“Sin City,” I whispered when the neon lights from strip were starting to glow in the early evening dusk and could be seen from my small vantage point in the back.
“Where demons hide.” Antonio wags his brows at me, a look of excitement and knowing crosses his face. My breath catches and I play it off quickly like his words don’t send shivers down my spine.
“Where millionaires fall and the underdog can become someone.” Joe adds from the front seat, before rolling down his window and letting his hand coast through the air.
“Where the depraved can be left in peace while the weak minded are held accountable.” Stone joins their twisted word game. I fight the urge to roll my eyes, not fully understanding where the conversation is going. Believing they sound like coked up frat boys on their first weekend of rush at college, only they’ve already been graduated for fifteen years, and now they’re the creepy guys at the bar. Seriously?
“Er,” I hesitate. “Are we staying at this hotel, too, or just working?” It’s been a few years since I’ve been on a Vegas run and even then I never had a hand in the actual planning. The guys had the jobs lined up, and Blake took care of the hotel, sometimes plural, that we stayed at.
“Yup,” Antonio replies, using his index finger to poke my forehead. “No worries B, it’s all taken care of.”
“Things are going to seem a little different this time, Blaisey.” Joe warns me, turning in his seat to meet my eyes. “We’re pretty well known in these parts.”
“What he means to say, “ Stone interjects, his deep black eyes finding mine in the rearview mirror. “Is it’s less manual labor now. And we usually celebrate at the club afterwards these days.”
“In style.” Joe throws in there, smirking proudly.
