This is the 2nd book in Alexander's Hot In The City trilogy, and at first I thought Ms. Alexander was going to tell Lynda's story, who appeared in French Quarter as Liz Marsh's supportive friend. But instead she writes about Liz's sister Diana, the wildest of the Marsh girls. Maybe someday Lynda will get her own story.

Diana has been flirting long-distrance with colleague Marc Davenport for months, but she's actually trying to tame her bad girl ways and settle down, maybe even get married. A business trip to Las Vegas gives her the opportunity to have her last fling before accepting the marriage proposal of a man her family approves of, as well as explore the fascination her and Marc have for each other after several months of trading phone calls and emails. Diana figures this is one place she can really let loose and give into her true nature with a man who shares her naughty sense of adventure and not judge her for it but rather indulge her every outrageous fantasy, as well as several of his own. Almost right from the start the sex is non-stop and wild. On their first night together after they meet, they share a wild ride in a limo, and that opens the doors to some very wild sexual encounters, many involving other people.

While I did find this story very sexy, I would have much preferred that the characters have a strong emotional connection that is evident from the start, and I just didn't get that. I couldn't help but be a little turned off by Diana's and Marc's first time together - which was spent with two of his friends who "enjoyed" Diana a little themselves. Not that there is a problem with that because it is a very exciting fantasy - it just felt like something was missing. This continues in various scenarios with other people until finally you wish it was just the two of them spending time together. I did feel a little like Diana's wild-child personality was the excuse to explore some of the more shocking multiple-partner encounters. It wasn't until near the end that I could feel that there was something going on between Marc and Diana besides the sex. True it was evident that they liked each other way before they met, but it seemed like it would have been very easy for either of them to walk away at any time.

If you loved "French Quarter" like I did, you may be disappointed that Sin City doesn't have the same romantic longing between the two characters which worked so well in FQ. Don't get me wrong: the sex is unbelievably hot and the sense of the forbidden heats up the story, but I would rather read an erotic romance than just plain erotica. Still, Ms. Alexander is a talented writer and I would definitely continue to read her stories.

Many strong sexual themes are explored here, including menais a trois, same-sex, mild submission and domination, and voyeurism and may not be suitable for all readers, so if you pick this one up, be ready for some blistering hot sex scenes not found in your traditional romance novel.

This blisteringly hot erotic story will have you summoning your local fire department to contain the blazing inferno of lust that "Sin City" by Lacey Alexander will ignite.

Marc Davenport is a cocksure, sweet and sexy, alpha bad boy with a delicious body and intelligent mind. He has learned to embrace his inner, and outer, bad boy, but he never would have thought he'd find someone that would accept that part of him, much less love it. Now all he has to do is convince Diana that it's okay for her to embrace her naughty-by-nature ways as well.

Smart and sexy Diana Marsh has always been the audaciously brazen bad girl in the family. Instead of embracing her naughty nature, she decides she wants to please her parents for once, and changes her wicked ways. She almost convinces herself that she has defied nature by starting a career, buying a house, and dating the perfect man that her mother picked out for her. Well, he would be the perfect man if she truly was the good girl she was trying to be. Despite Diana's best efforts to change her wicked ways, she soon realizes that in "Sin City" her self-restrained bad girl is much like molten lava that boils at the surface of a volcano just waiting for that perfect moment to erupt.

If you are looking for white-hot eroticism, then look no further. "Sin City" by Lacey Alexander, the second in the "Hot in the City" trilogy, tells the story of two erotically ardent characters who were born to be bad. Explore "Sin City" with them; vicariously experience their venturesome sexuality and their realized dreams of having their naughty natures embraced by the other. From start to finish, this one will have your blood boiling, and you're A/C running non-stop, and long after if you're anything like me. I think it's a good possibility that sometime in the future we'll be hearing about Adrianna's story. Oh and I'm sure Ms. Alexander could never forget Carter... I'm just salivating over the possibility of hearing his story. Next up is Carrie (the third Marsh sister) and Chris's story.

Diana wants a last bad girl fling before getting married. While on assignment in Las Vegas, her co-worker, Marc grants her wish. The chemistry between these two just sizzles. Las Vegas also known as Sin City was the perfect backdrop for this story! I enjoyed this story.

Borrowed this from the library... I read the French Quarter about a year ago.... loved it. Thought I needed to read this one too.... I am currently on Key West. These are some of the hottest books ever! Im not at all into some of the things that are played out in the scenes, but they still seem so hot! Lets just day that my husband is usually quite happy after I have been reading Lacey's books!

OK, I'm just going to write one review about the Hot in the City books because it applies to all three. I really liked the sisters and the guys they wind up. But, there was just too much sex for me in all the books. I didn't even mind that it was kinky sex, but just too much of it. The stories themselves were pretty basic, "girl meets boy, they have hot sex all the time, then HEA".....

Descriptive and very steamy story of Diana Marsh and Marc, they have talked a number of times on the phone and forged a friendship that has spanned across North America, they have the chance to meet in Las Vegas and what happens in Vegas also stays in Vegas. Found the second book in the series as entertaining as the first and third. Thank you Ms Alexander for a great summer read.

This was a great way to tour Las Vegas without ever leaving my house. Ms. Alexander makes the city come alive along with the hot steamy romance. I would recommend this book to anybody who loves great romances.

This was a great follow-up book to Alexander's French Quarter. The sex scenes were hot and the book was throughly enjoyable for late night reading in bed! One warning-- don't buy this book if one woman/multiple men scenarios bother you.

I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys sensuously written erotic books. The author did a wonderful job of telling a good story with two delightful characters. I certainly plan to read all of the other books in the series.
