Publisher Comments:

Las Vegas showgirl Carly Jacobsen keeps finding out the hard way that her idea of fun differs radically from that of her neighbor Wolfgang Jones.

Sure, he looks incredible, and he seems to have a thing for her legs, but the man's a robot. So what's with their chemistry?

Wolf has noticed Carly's legs, because they're always tangled up in leashes attached to her ridiculous assortment of pets. She's a pain, she's wacky, she's always in the way and yet for some reason he can't keep her out of his thoughts.

When a moment of weakness leads to some serious sheet-scorching sex, the two discover at least one area where they do both have fun. But outside the bedroom the stakes are getting higher, and love might come down to a roll of the dice….

Review:

"The good old 'opposites attracts' gambit is the basis for this winning round of Vegas romance, the follow-up to Andersen's bestseller Skintight. Carly Jacobsen is a Vegas showgirl who loves three things — her friends, her dogs and her single life. Security guard Wolfgang Jones, who works at the casino where she dances, is a man with a serious plan: a top-notch security job, a wife and a cookie-cutter home. Living in neighboring condos, the only thing the two have in common is a shared wall and a profound dislike of one another. He thinks she's irresponsible and immature, she thinks he's judgmental and a jerk. When you deal in the red-hot chemistry between them, however, the odds change significantly. Deft characters, smart dialogue, laugh-out loud moments and sizzling sexual tension (you might want to read Chapter 15 twice) make this hard to put down. The only questionable bet is Carly's mystery suitor, a twist that does nothing for the story. Lovers of romance, passion and laughs should go all in for this one." Publishers Weekly (Copyright Reed Business Information, Inc.)

Synopsis:

In this laugh-out-loud follow-up to "Skintight," Vegas showgirl Carly Jacobsen and Wolfgang Jones, head of hotel security, are as different as night and day. But a threat from a stalker and their supportive friends help them realize they are made for each other. Original.
