Book Description

Jewel of the Night
It’s not that Binda Morningstar’s an idiot—the girl’s got more degrees than a thermometer—but there’s something about a crisis that makes her lose her mind…and accidentally injure anyone within a ten-foot radius. But if she’s going to rescue her boss from a cursed jewel, she’s going to have to keep it together. Unfortunately for her, the cop on the case, Corin Hawthorne, has her losing her mind and her heart…and if he gets any more drool-worthy, she’s going to lose her inhibitions, too. To save her boss and win her man, she’s got to out run a mobster, out wit the YIFFS at a sex-fetish convention, and out think an ex-wife—and she’s got to do it all without breaking an arm or inadvertently hitting anyone with pepper spray…it’s all got Binda hoping that what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

It's not that Binda Morningstar's an idiot -- the girl's got more degrees than a thermometer -- but there's something about a crisis that makes her lose her mind... and accidentally injure anyone within a ten foot radius. But if she's going to rescue her boss from a cursed jewel, she's going to have to keep it together. Unfortunately for her, the cop on the case, Corin Hawthorne, has her losing her mind and her heart...and if he gets anymore drool worthy, she's going to lose her inhibitions, too.

To save her boss and win her man, she's got to outrun a mobster, outwit the yiffs at a sex fetish convention, and outthink an ex-wife -- and she's got to do it all without breaking an arm or inadvertently hitting anyone with pepper spray... it's all got Binda hoping that what happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas.

What Stephanie Thinks: A cursed gem keeps its promises; fortunately for Binda and her dreamy, swoon-worthy cop-turned-partner, Corin, its robber doesn't know about the infamous jinx on the precious stone, which, in turn, ends up favorably for them.

The mystery of this entertaining sleuth story is predictable and its suspense very short-lived and weak. The "danger" presented doesn't have me biting my nails or shivering, and for the most part, I think the crime is clean; I'd consider What Happens in Vegas a cozy mystery because all the horrific blood, guts, and violence remains bated. The plot moves quickly, so even some of the bland scenes are still enjoyable. And of course, there's the humor.

Oh, yes -- the humor.

5.0 out of 5 stars The perfect indulgence! August 28, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
What can I say? Only that What Happens in Vegas is one of the most delightfully fun books that I have read in a while. Don't get me wrong, I have read several excellent books, but this one was an absolute hoot! I literally laughed out loud in places and felt the heat and sizzle steaming from my Nook as I read.

The character of Binda is a complete lovable klutz that I adored. Her fixation with chocolate syrup, whipped cream and cherries melds very nicely with Corin's love of pudding. Ah, Corin. What a spicy and delectable character...

Together, Binda and Corin go in search of Corin's brother as well as a stolen and incredible rare diamond. There are bits of mystery intertwined with a very healthy dose of sexual tension and humor. What Happens in Vegas is the absolute perfect book to snuggle down with and toss the cares and stresses of the world away. Not only is it a fun read but it is a fast read. The characters are awesome, the dialog is excellent and the story is just plain fun. I truly cannot recommend this enough to anyone looking for a fun read. I am now a huge fan of Natasha Deen and cannot wait to indulge within her other works!

Here's a fun little teaser from the book:

I had tripped over my feet, head-butted a gangster in the crotch, got a mouthful of criminal penis, and the man thought I was brilliant. If that wasn't a sign we were meant to be together, fornicating and discovering the various uses for honey and warmed chocolate, than I didn't know what was.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Great Funny Read! August 5, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just found Natasha, and this book is Hysterically Funny! I wasn't sure if the book would live up to it's title, but it did and surpassed it! Binda was so cute and funny, with a thought process that boggles your mind. Corbin, was the perfect hero, an alpha with a weakness for klutzy women. I love their interaction together and they made a great team.

**SPOILER** I thought I would fall off my chair laughing out loud when she threatens with her rubber band, and ends up "shooting" herself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vegas fun! January 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
What Happens in Vegas is a fun caper by Natasha Deen. I loved Binda's quirky humor and her partner in crime, Corin, so, so hot. The who done it surprised me, mostly because I got caught up in the story and forgot to wonder about the mystery part, which is unusual for me. Great, fun, quick paced read.

Note: I was provided an ARC for review as a professional courtesy. No monetary or other compensation was involved.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quick and hilarious romp November 8, 2012
By Misty
Format:Kindle Edition
Binda Morningstar is an intelligent woman until a crisis arises. When one does, her thought process goes out the window and she has the potential to accidently injure anyone around her. When her boss ends up missing, she has to reign in her issues if she's going to save her him from a cursed stone. It doesn't help things much that the cop on the case, Colin Hawthorne is drop dead sexy. To get through all this, she has to out run a mobster, some Yiffs at a sex-fetish convention and deal with an ex-wife. Can she do this without breaking an arm or inadvertently injuring someone else?

This romantic comedy is a quick and hilarious romp. I never thought I would see Yiffs in a romantic comedy but that's just a testament to Natasha Deen's wild imagination. I finished this book in about two hours and I could not put it down. Binda's issues with dealing with stressful situations just make this book and the interactions with the characters. I really hope this isn't the last time we see Binda or Corin. If this is what happens in Deen's version of Vegas, I wanna keep coming back to visit as a reader!

Thank you to Natasha Deen and Partners in Crime book tours for the review copy. It in no way influenced my review.

More About the Author

When I was little, there was only one thing I wanted to be when I grew up: a superhero. Sadly, this goal was made moot when I realized that being a klutz was not in fact, a super power, and my super-weakness for anything bright and shiny meant that a magpie with self-control could easily defeat me in a battle of wills. Hence, the turn to writing as an occupation. I don't get to live on a secret space station orbiting the earth (and thank God, because I get motion sick on a merry-go-round), but I still get to wear leotards, a cape and say things like, "STAND ASIDE! THIS IS A JOB FOR WRITING-GIRL!" You can visit me at www.natashadeen.com.
