Overview

Skin deep is never deep enough.

Vegas Top Guns, Book 5

After a near-fatal plane crash, fighter pilot Captain Eric “Kisser” Donaghue is a changed man. By day he labors to regain his confidence in the cockpit. By night he moonlights as an off-Strip boxer, fighting for prize money to pay for his younger brother’s third stint in rehab.

In the ring, no one cares he once had a face that launched a thousand one-night stands—and neither does Eric. He’s only there to win. Yet he can’t take his eyes off the new ring girl, a glitz-meets-pageant-queen vision of blonde perfection.

Down on her luck but not quite out, Vegas showgirl Trish Monroe lives for the spotlight. The scarred, steely-eyed loner who stares at her from his corner of the ring gives Trish an extra reason to strut her stuff.

Curiosity and the temptation of a no-strings good time bring them together. The discovery of their secret fetishes—she likes to show off, he likes to watch—turns mere sexual chemistry into a fiery exploration of matched passions. They’re a natural fit. Trust in love, however, is harder to earn than trust in bed, especially when this beauty and beast hide even from themselves.

Warning: This book contains a Sin City-style Beauty and the Beast love story, lots of naughty pics and vids, adrenaline-pumped base jumping, and a set of very important note cards. Oh, and as always, an incredibly hot fighter pilot.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
10/15/2013
Eric is an air force pilot who moonlights as a boxer in Vegas; he is badly scarred from a crash landing some time ago. Trish is a gorgeous, aspiring set designer who makes her living as a showgirl and a sports card girl. Both are hiding behind their physical appearances, showing tough exteriors to the world. They are a combustive match in bed—he is a voyeur who likes to photograph his lovers, and she loves to be watched. As they spend more time together, Trish begins to open up to Eric about her past. However, the openness isn't necessarily reciprocated, causing a crisis in the relationship. VERDICT These characters have depth, the sex scenes are hot, and the reader will root for this pair to work out their differences and allow themselves to get past their emotional scars and be vulnerable.

    “BARE KNUCKLE will sizzle the panties right off of you!” ~Under the Covers

    BARE KNUCKLE marks the end of the Vegas Top Guns series. I have to admit I am sad to see it end. This is a smoking hot series and I’ve loved every second of it because it’s always new and over the top. It goes places where other erotic romances are scared to go sometimes.

    Even though this installment is not as kinky as the past few books in the series, BARE KNUCKLE still holds a lot of appeal to me. I loved this particular kink! Eric “Kisser” is technically a voyeur and he expresses that by taking erotic pictures of women he’s been with, and some he hasn’t. Trish complements him perfectly because she’s an exhibitionist and revels in the fact that he’s taking pictures of video of her.


    “Turn the viewfinder to me. I want to see the moment I swallow your come.”

    Eric is just a bit uptight in this. He has recovered from his accident but he has a lot of hang ups. He has his scars and women are not flocking to him the way they used to before. His brother is in rehab and he’s back to moonlighting as a fighter to make extra money to pay for that. He immediately catches the attention of Trish, who is starting out as a ring girl. Trish has her own issues, coming from a broken family where her mother has always used her. She’s trying to make it in Vegas but after so many years, it’s not working out for her.

    I really liked his intensity and all his leashed issues. He has such a good heart and at times doesn’t know how to handle those feelings and prefers to keep them bottled up. Trish on the other hand I wasn’t too sold on and I think my few issues with her were the reason why this wasn’t a 5 star read for me. She’s a bit too materialistic and self centered. I just didn’t agree with a lot of her reasoning. And there’s the fact that she threw in her ex-girlfriend in for a threesome that was really all about her. I wanted to see more of her taking care of Eric and including him, letting him in.

    Still as hot as I’ve always expected from this series, BARE KNUCKLE will sizzle the panties right off of you!
