Review: Vegas Hustle by Ethan Stone

A business trip to Las Vegas becomes a life or death situation for a comic book fan.

Comic book geek Adam Brand is young, good-looking and wealthy. He’s also a virgin because he’s not skilled at picking up guys. While in Vegas with his friend Dean to finalize a real estate deal, he throws caution to the wind and hires a professional. Hustler Javier Campos is just Adam’s type and his first time is perfect.

Things go very wrong when Dean and Adam have a run-in with two corrupt cops and Dean ends up dead. Adam must go into hiding with Javier where they realise their attraction is more than just a business arrangement.

Vegas Hustle is the second book from Totally Bound’s What’s His Passion imprint. It simply has a focal point of what the men in this book are passionate about. I found Adam to be a bit all over the place. He’s eighteen so he probably should be all over place. He is equally excited about losing his virginity and visiting the mother of all comic book stores while on a business errand for his father in Vegas. The business trip for the father considering what he does for a living seemed a little farfetched, but I’m very willing to suspend that belief to make this sexy little male male sexcapade work.

This just didn’t work for me on so many levels. There is a very good romantic suspense in these few pages, if there had been a couple hundred more pages. There was just entirely too much heavy stuff going on for the few pages. Erotic romance of this length really does work with minimal plot. There are key pieces of a very good romantic suspense novel here. Readers are given two young wealthy men out for a good time that hook up with the wrong people, corrupt cops, sweet hero prostitute, and Vegas. This makes for a novel, not a sexy short.
