Sin on the Strip

Sin on the Strip
by Lucy Farago 
Genre: Romantic Suspense

What happens in Las Vegas always burns bright, especially after hours. In this sizzling new series, the city's 24/7 glitz hides one woman's darkest nightmares—and one investigator's seductive secrets...

Control is everything to gorgeous Maggie Anderson. Her exclusive club gives abused and troubled women a refuge from Vegas's merciless streets—and helps her reclaim her shattered sense of freedom. But now someone is brutally murdering those she fights so hard to save. And baring her deepest fears to the one man who insists on protecting her could be the one move she won't survive…

Elite private investigator Christian Beck knows this particular serial killer's MO—and his own wrenching failure to find him—all too well. But staying two steps ahead of Maggie's determination to uncover the truth pushes his well-honed skills past the limit—and ignites his most naked instincts. Now every clue is a lie, each irresistible desire a lethal trap. And the closer he and Maggie get, their shattering secrets will either save them—or torch their lives to glittering ash…

3.0 out of 5 stars too slowOctober 19, 2015
*I received this book in exchange for an honest review*
This was a suspenseful book and great mystery. I just felt it was too long. It dragged in places and I found myself getting bored and walking away. I loved Maggie. She was a strong woman trying to do good. Christian was very judgemental until he knew the truth about her. After, their chemistry was great. I think if it didn't drag in so many places, this could have been a 5 star read for me. The inner dispute with the MC's was what kept it too slow.
I thought the plot had some great twists, that's the only reason I kept reading. I needed to know what happened, and how it all unfolded. I just really wish it was a quicker paced story.

Lucy Farago knows there is nothing like a happy sigh at the end of a good book. With the encouragement of her loving husband, she wrote her first manuscript. An unpublished historical, it sits in a file on her computer, there to remind her how much fun she had learning the craft and becoming part of an industry whose books make you believe anything is possible. A big fan of Agatha Christie, she set out to write her first romantic suspense novel. Thrilled to be a published author, Lucy also teaches yoga, enjoys cooking, and saying what other people are thinking. In her fantasy world, her beautiful Siberian husky, Loki, doesn't shed and her three kids clean up after themselves . Alas, that fantasy will never see fruition.
