Release Day ~ #Review ~ Vanilla and Vice by Tabatha Vargo & Melissa Andrea

Photographer: Eric David Battershell

Model: Kevin Hessam

Blurb -
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.

Vanilla and Vice (Empire Sevens, #1)

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars


First the cover...because...well it's amazing and will likely stay on my Kindle library for a long time just because I like looking at it.

Now to the book. I was super excited to get my little paws on this book and I was so happy when it appeared. The blurb caught my attention and I was intrigued about where they were going to go with this storyline.

Zander is a sex addict and is in recovery. He is trying really hard to curb his desires and so far is doing a good job. Although, he is moody and a brute. He also has a dark edge to him that I feel like we haven't seen all of yet. He is a successful Las Vegas casino owner but how he came to be the king of it all is not a story paved with roses. In order to keep his head in the game, he steers clear of temptations but when he walks in to find Eden working in his casino all that bottle-up frustration comes out in full force.

Eden escapes a pretty crappy life to seek a new start with her Aunt Kennedy. Eden is innocence and purity all wrapped up in an unassuming package. She is fierce and will do anything in her power to get out the situation that she left. She is a hard worker and is just sweet, but a little bit edgy too. She finds herself all wrapped up in the casino and trying to figure out what Zander's story is.

This book was quick and packed full of tension and insane chemistry. As I was nearing the end I knew there were not enough pages to finish what was going on and I was right. This book was super sexy and had me from the beginning to the end. There are also side characters that I can't wait to see more of. The fun, playboy, Kade and all business and a bit scary Kennedy. I cannot wait for the next book to see where this is going to go.
