I really enjoy reading contemporary romances that enlighten AND entertain . I also enjoy seeing a talented romance author take on a trope and give it a new twist. Vice, by Rosanna Leo, is a hot enemies-to-lovers romance that has some dark twists and turns. Of course, being a book by Rosanna, it is full of lots of passion and sizzling under-the-covers…well, pretty much anywhere, including a piano bench in a casino bar named, appropriately Decadence…action. I appreciated learning more about how gambling can become an addiction, tearing families apart and ruining lives. And about the people, like Kate, who work to right those wrongs and heal those wounds. But what Vice really brings home is that anything can become an addiction, including sex…and love. My favorite quote: Their love was like a Vegas casino, bright and lively on the outside, but cloaked in darkness, heedless of time and responsibility. They’d reveled in each other, forgetting the outside world, rather than learning how to function in it. And that is the heart of this story. Two damaged people looking for something that is more than just another addiction...and flirting with disaster when they forget those bright lights are artificial. Maybe they were each other’s vice, after all. And rather that lush amorous dialogue and purple prose, for me the most romantic line in the whole book was when Liam, finally understanding the dangerous game they had been playing in the artificial world of his casino, says to Kate: “I really want to start over and see if we can work our way back to the insane monkey sex.” I was glad to see Liam and Kate turn their backs on Vegas, but I would love to see what these two get up to in New York! I received a complimentary copy of this book for review.

Addiction comes in many forms and with a story set in a decadent Vegas casino called Vice, you’d think this one was all about the gambling. But, it’s much more than that. This is a sexy tale of two people who have managed to overcome adversity and find love in each other’s arms while fighting their own addictions. Having grown up with a father who was addicted to gambling, a man who showed up only when he needed money, it’s no wonder Kate Callender has made it her personal mission to help others in the same situation. The problem is Kate can’t stop enabling her father’s gambling habit and despite her better judgment, caves to his wicked manipulations time and again. When Kate suddenly finds herself out of work, she decides to use her free time to protest against the guy who just opened a new casino, someone she blames for fostering such temptations, Liam Doyle. Liam Doyle has spent a lifetime proving his worth by creating a gambling empire, building casino upon casino like a compulsion. But no manner of success has filled the void in his life until the moment he lays eyes on the sassy red head picketing outside Vice. One look and he’s hooked on Kate. Despite her angst and ultimate goal of shutting down the Vice grand opening, he can’t stop looking at her, dreaming about her, or wanting her in his bed, and she quickly becomes his obsession. There’s so much to say about the characters Rosanna Leo has created. They’re funny, sexy and yes, challenged. Each of them had sad childhoods that left them damaged. Yet, they managed to rise above it all to gain professional success and still couldn’t dump their personal demons. As they wage war in and out of the bedroom, intimate details of their own lives emerge and they begin to see each other in a different light. Little by little, as haunted memories are shared, they cling to each other for emotional support. Having bared their souls and bodies, what starts out as a simple attraction soon turns into sexy obsession, another addition—this time to each other. The emotional antics of these characters unfold between the sheets with steamy scenes and sexy encounters they use to escape the real issues that plague them. While the sex is romping good fun, one can’t help but cross their fingers and cheer for them to work out their problems, trust in each other and find a deeper connection. Watching Kate and Liam’s lives develop on the page will leave the reader addicted to this story.

A great story of two people fighting their own pasts coming together and finding strength in each other. Rosanna handled the problems of an addict in a family with compassion and understanding. A really great read.
