I Liked It!
After meeting Perrie in Sin, I was excited to see we were going to get her story, and Lust did not disappoint!
Perrie Fox has not lived an easy life. She’s the outcast of the Fox family, the “black sheep” who made the choice to keep her daughter and has been outcast from the family and to keep herself and her daughter alive, she’s now a hooker in Vegas to keep a house over their head and food on the table. One one fateful night when she makes a mistake, and is arrested by the sexy detective Adrian Potter, her life takes another turn.
Adrian and Perrie shouldn’t want each other, in fact they drive one another nuts, but having to work together makes them have to spend more time together than Perrie would like, and the more time she spends with Adrian the more he seems to get under her skin. When her daughter Lola and Adrians son Zac form a bond, there is no getting away from him. I loved these two little kinds and how much they played into this story. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I adored Adrian and Perrie, but I don’t know if they would have gotten far in their relationship if it wasn’t for Zac and Lola. The two kids are really what brought them together and kept them together. There was chemistry between Adrian and Perrie, and that was something neither of them could deny, no matter how much they wanted too, but when Zac and Lola schemed and always wanted to be together, it forced these two to be with one another outside of work and actually start to enjoy each others company.
I liked how this story played out, but at times it seemed jumpy, and some parts drug on while others went by way too fast for my liking. I would have liked to have seen these two together more after all the build up we had with them playing the cat and mouse game. There was so much buildup to these two being together, that when it finally happened and we finally got it, the book seemed to end, and I was like NOOOO and I wanted more! I wished we would have had an epilogue or more to the ending than what we had. I wanted more for these characters and I hope that Emma Hart will give us a novella or something with Perrie, Adrian, Damien and Dahlia (from Sin) as I want to see them all get their real HEA and see how their stories truly end.
I will say that this book was steamy, and full of laughs, and my heart did break for everything that Perrie had gone through, as well as Adrian and his and Zac’s back story. I felt for these characters and everything they went through to get their HEA. I did enjoy this book I was just left wanting more. Lust is definitely a book that should be added to your TBR if you’re looking for a funny and sexy read!
