Vegas Series: Boxed Set by Mimi Barbour Review

Title: Vegas Series
Author: Mimi Barbour
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Pages: 640
Price: $2.99
Thoughts: Fast-paced, page turner.

Book Synopsis:

This sizzling box set for the Vegas Series starts off where we meet up with hardworking, hard-assed Detective Aurora Morelli. Attempting to arrest a rapist who attacks her colleague then continually thwarts her attempts to bring him to justice--to a horrific nightmare where her new baby is kidnapped--this scrappy detective does everything in her power to control these events. Kai Lawson, a partner she doesn't want, fights against and in the end accepts is the hero in these first few stories. The bald-headed, purse-carrying hotshot knows just how to pull her crank and the outcome is entertaining. Their blockbuster story will get you totally invested in this series.

In the last three books, along comes Lisa Jordan, a kick-ass kinda gal who loves wearing the shield as a Vegas detective and enjoys the more strenuous aspects of her job. She steps in for a while as Aurora's partner while Kai is MIA. Her story begins here and ends the series as she fights her attraction for wealthy casino owner, Jeff Waters. After one wild night, the charismatic charmer digs his way into her heart and that of the three-year-old nephew in her care. The fact that he leaves her speechless, literally, detracts from his appeal for Lisa since as a self-professed chatterbox, it's the first time ever. On the other hand, everything else about the man is fascinating. She can no more fight her memories than stop herself from rescuing him from two killers holding him hostage in revenge for the mistakes of his father.


From drug lords to missing babies and bank robberies, the Vegas Series from Mimi Barbour is a romantic suspense collection that will keep you excitedly turning the pages to find out what's going to happen next. However, what I really loved about this series was watching the relationships grow. Whether it was watching people become better friends or lovers, Barbour does an amazing job at creating well-rounded characters with endearing relationships. If you love romantic suspense, you'll love the Vegas Series.
