Miami. The city of sex, sin — and secrets.

I came here with one mission: solve the mystery behind my brother’s death.

I KNEW THAT WAS COMING! **gasp, gasp, gasp** But somehow I was still shocked.


Damn! Where is Book two when I need it. My God.

Okay, firstly: Roxy Sloan has the serial formula down to a T! It's great. An easy start, a little mystery, a dash of fierce sexiness, and then she drops you like it's hot and BOOMMMMMMM... it ends and leaves you screaming for more. You're HOOKED. TAKEN. OWNED!

I love it.
I love these little reads.

They take all your emotions and inflame them. They're

★★★ 3 Stars ★★★

Another serial from Roxy Sloane, In this, part 1, we see Nikki arriving in Miami to work on a hotel resort with her friend Hailey. Nikki has another motive for working there though, she is determined to find answers as to what happened to her brother before his 'accidental death'.

She immediately catches the eye of rich guest, Xavier who sets out to wine and dine her (and fuck her).

It was OK, I found Xavier a bit cheesy with his pick up lines and I thought Nikki conveniently made f

The Scene is a book very much like Miami; sexy and colorful but not everything always makes sense in this land. Trust me I know, because I've been a Miami resident for now seventeen years and not too long ago I was very much part of the Miami scene.

Like in this book describes, must people in Miami are very into theirs or others good looks. The city is full of beautiful people and everywhere you go physical beauty is key to get into the hottest places. Lucky for us Miami re

This was an interesting read and I couldn't put it down! Although it was obviously that the story was a bit predictable and a cliffhanger didn't even surprise me, I really enjoyed it. I wanted to know exactly who Xavier was!

I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review.

Roxy Sloane has done it again!! She's given us the perfect blend of sex, intrigue, danger and romance. You can always count on her books to be smoking hot, and this is no exception. I have so many ideas for activities to do in and on a sports car now...

Nicole moves to Miami to live with a friend under the pretense of just needing a change of scenery. The truth is that she has suspicions about her brother's death six months ago. The coroner says

Ms. Sloane sure knows how to write a quick, sinfully sexy read that is also full of drama and suspense!

What an ending to an action packed book! I can't wait to see what happens when 'you know who' sees 'what's her face'

This one has definitely kept me on the edge of my seat and I'm anticipating what is going to happen next and how this is all going to play out!

Little does she know there are so many pieces to that puzzle and that it maybe a puzzle she doesn't want to put together. After moving to Miami Hailey sets Nicole up with a job at the hotel/resort.

Xavier is a sexy mystery. I want to know more about him. I want to hear him talk dirty again and again and again. I loved this first part of The Scene. I loved that it had that fast-paced Roxy Sloane vibe but it carried a whole new voice with Nikki. We have new setting - Miami - and it’s fucking perfect for this book. The vibe of this city shined through in Roxy’s words. I want to go on a yacht and wear Beach Fabulous clothes and hang with Nikki and her fabulous friends.

As always, Roxy gives us
The GODDESS of Serials is BACK!!! AND she just kicked my ass with this ending! You know it's coming, and yet it still surprises the FUCK out of you every single time! HOT DAMN woman! You are a master!

HOT HOT HOT! Everything about Book 1 is HOT! Roxy Sloane blows me away with how amazing her writing is, and how easily she hooks me with her characters and fast-paced story lines. It's angsty, it's erotic as all hell, AND we get a hero who is a sexy mystery! Don't mind me...I fell like I have to use

Roxy is The Queen of Fast Fucks and she shows us why she reigns supreme in The Scene. If you're new to the serial novella circuit, get in here and learn from the master.

Overflowing with dirty talk, skinny dipping and decadence, The Scene is a quick and delicious story that will make your temperature rise.

Would you like some suspense with your mind-blowing orgasms? Then you need to get in touch with The Scene and let Xavier work his magic fingers and tongue while traveling through the potential

Eh. The premise was good. The h came across as ditzy and I didn't really care for her. The "shocking revelation" at the end of this book wasn't a shock and I felt like maybe it was foreshadowed too much - I would have liked it better if it really was a shock.

Also - hello, Mr. Insatiable Playboy...CONDOMS. That scene frustrated me. When h/H are monogamous and it is forgotten or they decide to forego, it doesn't bother me - when he's a manwhore and it just isn't mentioned...ick.

Major cliffhanger.

5 Blazing stars for Xavier and Nicole!

I don’t think words can accurately describe how much I enjoyed this first book in the series. The chemistry and banter between Nicole and Xavier was so entertaining. The sensuality between them is HOT! Sizzling, actually. Nicole (Nikki) has just arrived in Miami in search of answers to her brother’s strange death. She’s not in Miami for long before she meets the incredibly handsome Xavier. There is so much mystery surrounding Xavier. Who is he and what is he

Well, all I can say is Roxy Sloane hit it out of the park once again. I was on the edge of my seat and could not put this book down! It's riveting, sexy, suspenseful and leaves you wanting more.

Make way for Xavier, ladies, the newest lady killer in Roxy's arsenal. He'll make you melt into a puddle the first time you meet him. Nicole (Nikki) never had a chance!

Xavier is sinfully sexy. He holds an air of mystery -- something is laying right beneath the surface, but can't yet be reached. The young, ambitious businessman who appears to have been bred into Alpha sensuality. He will melt your panties with one look. This man has skills!!!!

I adore Roxy's writing.

I knew that this was going to be spicy, being set in Miami. There is just something about this city that puts a sense of heat into the story. Roxy has a way of setting the "scene".
You start with the mystery that is Nikki and her brother. You are immediately caught up wanting to know what happened. Then Xavier comes into the picture as this rich, debonair mystery man. He encapsulates Nikki, as well as the reader, from the get go. Watching Nikki stumble through the first fe

Once again, Roxy takes you on a ride to an amazing place, and brings a great couple (they don't know it yet) along for a great adventure. The alpha in this series is Xavier, self-made mogul and sex god! He's got some secrets, but so does our lady, Nicole. She moves to Miami for a change of scenery, and to try to find out how her brother died. The cops are saying one story, but Nicole doesn't believe it.
