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.Read more ›
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.
The chemistry between Corin the hero and the heroine Binda is immediate and realistic. I think my all time favorite moment between Binda and Corin is their first kiss. The entire set up the way the author crafts it as an "experiment" for Binda to kiss a cop for the first time, and Corin's desire to give cops a good reputation, was an extremely cute and very clever way to give the characters breathing space, while using the situation to blow off the reader's socks with powerful descriptions! I was hot and bothered from just reading their first kiss!
There are moments that are just laugh out loud funny, especially with the way Binda is so cleverly written with her inner monologue comments just making me unable to stop giggling. My favorite parts are where Binda has to interact with Corin's ex-girlfriend and Binda's inner dialogue about how she'd love to take out the competition is just amazingly hilarious. It reminds me of me, and probably of most female readers who see a woman zeroing in on the man we're interested in. It's just great. And another amazing part was where Binda fends off the villain with a rubber band as a gun. Totally gutsy, outrageous and absolutely true the way the author crafted Binda's clever and funny character.
All in all I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good adventure, very sweet and cute interactions the hero and heroine and just for anyone that loves funny parts. That was what really won it over for me. The amount of humor was perfect and just made the experience a delight.
