This investigation is getting very personal...

P.I.-in-training Valerie LeRoy is dying to get into the field. So when a client asks her to spy on someone, the thrill of her own case is too tempting to refuse. Instead of a cheating fiance, however, Val's actually checking out P.I. Drake Morgan! Worse, she ends up working with the guy!

Their differing opinions on techniques, and the instant attraction, make the sparks fly. It's almost impossible to focus on their arson investigation. As the hunt for the truth intensifies and their passion rivals the triple-digit temperature, she and Drake learn why Las Vegas is the city that never sleeps...

My Thoughts:

When I began this one, I had totally forgotten what the summary had said about it. I just remembered that I really wanted to read it because it sound like something a little different but still had a romantic element to it. It slipped my mind that the reason was private investigating! Talk about a very nice surprise.

Once I started reading, I couldn't stop. It started strong, with Valerie pretending to flirt with Drake. After their sexually charged first encounter, I had a feeling I knew exactly what was really happening. It reminded me of an episode on Veronica Mars. Go figure! And guess what? I was right!! But, instead of deterring me, it made me even more intrigued to see what would happen next for the two of them. And only like 50% of my interest was for the romance, the rest was wrapped up in the actual story and mystery. As you know, I'm all about romance, so it was absolutely awesome to have the story really draw me in as much as the chemistry between Drake and Valerie.

Sleepless in Las Vegas had me immersed in the intrigue from start to finish. I sat on the edge of my seat, anxious to turn the page and see what would happen next. I loved Valerie and Jake together and their search for who's responsible had me captivated. If this is how Colleen Collins always writes, I am very interested in seeing more of it.
