It was supposed to be a one-night stand. 

Hot sex. No regrets. Jess Delaney has spent her life playing the role of the good-girl. On a trip to Vegas, she decides to walk on the wild side when she meets mysterious Blake Landon. Rich, powerful, and carrying plenty of secrets, Blake is unlike any man she has ever met before.

Blake is also far more dangerous than anyone she’s ever encountered. When enemies from Blake’s past attack, Jess finds herself caught in a deadly cat-and-mouse game. Her only hope of survival? Trusting a man who knows too much about the dark side of life…and a man who—with every sensual touch—binds her to him with a desire that burns red-hot. 

Once you step into the darkness, there’s no turning back…

  • A Walk on the Wild Side

    By AndiBabcock
    I read this book as a part of the Wicked Firsts anthology. Ironic as it is, this is the first book I have read by Cynthia Eden, and I can't wait to read more by her. I enjoyed her writing style and characters. I quickly made a connection with both characters. In fact, I would love to learn more of Blake's back story. I thought Jess' outlook and personality was endearing rather than corney. I liked she admitted she was scared, but still didn't walk away. I think one of my favorite moments is even though she thought she was being thrown away, she held her head up and refused to take the "walk of shame" because she made her own choices. That is a strong character. I hope to find more in her other books.
