Recommended to Anna (Bobs Her Hair) by: Taryn's review
This is a wee bitty novella about recently divorced woman and a rich, successful businessman burned by a girlfriend who used him for his money. Sparks fly and they have a hot one-night stand. Then, they can't forget each other.

The ending is of the "to be continued" variety. I would like to have learned more about their characters but there's enough to keep me interested in their next story. As mentioned this is a very very very short novella (about 30-40 minutes), more like a "quickie" *cough*

Stephanie Thomas is a Pharmaceutical Rep in Miami on a business trip. She just went through an emotionally draining divorce. For her, this business trip is more about relaxation than business. A normally feared and unwanted hurricane decides to hit the city while she is in Miami. The hurricane traps her in an elevator with the very handsome and very wealthy builder, Jason Royce. Her friends have been telling her to she needs to let loose and h

Sexually Captivating & Hot!

Wow, I am so happy right now because this was one book where the book cover fits the story to the tee and actually tells you how good the story is and doesn't lie. I won this book on Sandra Bunino's site in a blog hop and am so tickled I won it. The writing is smooth and fast paced leaving you wanting more in the end.

The story captivated me immediately because the introduction of both characters "Jason" and "Stephanie" baggage of being burned from past relationship

I enjoyed this story as well as the first one. It picked up where the first book Marooned in Miami left off. The sex scenes were wonderfully written as well as the location in Vegas. This book is a must read and I give it 4.5 stars.

This story was a little longer than the first book in the series. I really enjoyed it. This time around Jason has an unexpected & unwelcome visitor. The story has blackmail, jail time, ex-girlfriends and much more in it. They are both keeping secrets from each oth

So, I received an email from Ms. Bunino asking if I wanted this book. Of course I said yes and I'm glad I did!

You have Stephanie, a 30 year old recently divorced hard worker who is in Miami for her job.

You have Jason, a 40 year old who got out of a relationship hard worker. His description is exactly the type I love to read. Won't tell ya...gotta read it for yourself.

Five weeks have passed since Jason and Stephanie's encounter in Marooned in Miami. Since then he has managed to talk her into spending five days and nights with him in Sin City. How could she refuse when their chemistry was still so palpable despite their time apart? Now that he has her on his home turf, he plans to seduce her and shower her with all the lavish attentions at his disposal – some of which include a beautiful dinner out, a little swim and sexy times in a secluded grotto,

Jason Royce is successful, wealthy and good looking. Women flock to him, but they're more interested in his wealth and what he can offer them. After catching his now ex-wife with another man, he's all for casual, no-strings-attached sex. Getting stuck in the hotel elevator with a sexy stranger might make him rethink his decision.

Stephanie Thomas is in Miami on business, hoping to relax a little and escape from the stress of her recent divorce. A raging storm is the catalyst for a close encounter

I have to say I was very surprised at how much I enjoyed this book. I didn't know what to expect from the book based on the blurb in Goodreads but it far exceeded my expectations. This book was more then about two people who hook up during a storm but about two people willing to take a chance with each other despite previous heartaches in their life that has left them jaded about finding happiness in someone else's arms again.

Las Vegas is the perfect setting to this steamy sequel to "Marooned in Miami."

Why? Because Sin City is all about fantasy and this story is pretty much every adult woman's fantasy come true: A sexy, rich and KIND man plans a romantic weekend for you at HIS private Las Vegas resort, catering and pampering your every whim, while giving you the best sex of your life.

I mean, what's not to love?

We start off with both parties at a hotel, where they promptly get stuck on an elevator when the power goes out. This gets them introduced and we play voyeur as they spend a single night together. That one night leaves a lasting impression on them both, but Jason and Stephanie certainly have a few obstacles to overcome if they want to explore the passion they’ve shared and experience more out of a relationship than what they’ve gotten in the past.

I really enjoyed Marooned in Miami, and was so excited for the conclusion to Jason and Stephanie’s story. They had such chemistry in the first one, and for a novella, such depth of character. This continuation keeps up that same quality! We get even more insight into their fears, their desires, and of course we get more of their bold, insatiable lust for each other.

True to the beginning of their story, there was dual layered conflict here with Jason’s ex showing up and causing loads of trouble,

Lusted in Las Vegas picks up where Marooned in Miami leaves off while Stephanie and Jason’s sexy tryst continues in Sin City! I read this straight after Marooned in Miami, I just couldn’t wait!! I think I was as eager as Jason and Steph for the reuniting!! Sin city here I come!!!

Once again the chemistry is just smouldering, but in this read Sandra has thrown in a little suspense to give this story an edge as well.

The sensual story of Stephanie and Jason continues right where it left off in Marooned in Miami and it still holds true by keeping my interest. I was not disappointed in the least the way Sandra continued on from book one. I found this part of the series to be suspenseful as well and sensual and intriguing.

Stephanie has not seen Jason since Miami and it’s been weeks, no contact by either party what-so-ever. She cannot get him out of her mind; she yearns for him, his touch and his voice. She can

Thank you Ms. Bunino for not torturing your dear fans with a long, painful wait for the next installment in the sexy escapades of Stephanie and Jason! Like that thrilling second date, Lusted In Las Vegas, tantalizes the reader with promises made while Marooned in Miami. Stephanie and Jason keep their rendezvous as planned - Stephanie for that second taste of Jason's stellar skills, Jason with the hope that their new kindled flame will burn even hotter than before.

I really enjoyed this sexy short story about two strangers that meet up in a hotel during a storm.

The characters were realistic, and I found myself immediately liking Stephanie. She could easily be one of my friends or coworkers. I could relate to her circumstances, and understand how her ex had made her feel.

Jason was up front and honest with Stephanie. He didn't make promises that he wouldn't keep. I liked how he realized that Stephanie was special and wanted to see her again. It was nice to

This is the follow up from Marooned in Miami where Stephanie and Jason sexcapades start and now continue in Las Vegas. As their reunion is sexy and sweet, both Jason and Stephanie's feelings are growing into more than a sexual tryst. While both are enjoying each other's bodies and entertaining thoughts of "more", Jason's ex wants him back! How far is she willing to go?

Sandra Bunino weaves a short but sweet erotic tale about a woman who we wish we were and feel like we already are at the same time. Stephanie’s gorgeous and tall but carrying emotional damage from a marriage gone bad. Jason isn’t much different. Ruggedly handsome and rich, he’s used to women only wanting him for his money and he distances himself so he doesn’t get hurt again. Neither of them are looking for a relationship, but when they meet in a dark elevator fate has other ideas.

Stephanie was on a business trip in Miami when she met Jason Royce in the hotel's elevator. He had followed her into it after spotting her from a distance Both of them ended up trapped inside the elevator when a power outage occurred. Jason had a chance to comfort Steph, who was frightened out of her wits and then the story takes on from there.

It's a short read but it's enough for me to take a liking to both characters. Both of them had their story to tell. Steph's was divorced and Jason was wea

First of all let me just say if I can get stuck in the elevator with Jason I am so there! This book was a short read but it had a lot packed into the 36 pages. I can’t wait for the sequel Lusted in Las Vegas.

This book caught me by surprise usually the short books are sometimes okay or you feel like something was missing but this one caught my attention. I sat down and read it on my breaks at work so it didn’t take long but it seemed like for everything we got out of the story it was a lot longe

Perhaps it's because I read this on Easter and my house was filled with candy, but that is all I could think of while reading this short, sexy novella. Candy. Sweet, gooey, leave you aching but wanting more candy. The premise is simple enough - two people meet in an elevator in a swank hotel. Both successful, both burned by former lovers, neither looking for more than a hook up - he far more experienced at that sort of thing than she. But surprisingly enough, Ms. Bunino cleverly draws the reader ...more

This was a sweet, sexy read. For me, perhaps too sweet, but if you like that, this is a book for you. At first I thought, ah the old trapped in a lift in a power cut story - but the author chose to go a more real route here and had the MC's rescued fairly quick. Off then to the candle lit bar to get to know each other - and how! I didnt gel with the over attentiveness of Jason after that but maybe that was jealousy that no one has treated me like that!

Lusted in Las Vegas wastes no time to prove it's title correct in really beautiful ways. The incredible chemistry from Marooned in Miami was back and in full swing and this time we get to see if these two can make it work. The simple truth is that it's not just about lust with these two, but things are never simple when two are falling in love. We get loads of conflict here and it works really well. It's a lil Novella and it is also a must read.

I loved the follow up to this story and it picked up right where it left off of in Marooned in Miami. If you haven't read the 1st one, I'd recommend you do so... you'd be missing on of some pretty yummy hot stuff if you don't. Not that Lusted in Las Vegas was skimpy on the hot stuff either... it was there and it was great!
I really loved the ended and am fairly certain I will enjoy anything from this author. Looking forward to more novels from her!

I loved this book! Jason and Stephanie grabbed my attention almost from the beginning of the story and wouldn't let me go. There was so much emotion between them that reading their story felt almost voyeuristic. It was a story that I didn't want to end. Thank goodness there is Lusted in Las Vegas!
