“BARE KNUCKLE will sizzle the panties right off of you!”
~ Under the Covers

BARE KNUCKLE marks the end of the Vegas Top Guns series. I have to admit I am sad to see it end. This is a smoking hot series and I’ve loved every second of it because it’s always new and over the top. It goes places where other erotic romances are scared to go sometimes.

Even though this installment is not as kinky as the past few books in the series, BARE KNUCKLE still holds a lot of appeal to me. I loved this particular kink! Eric “Kisser” is technically a voyeur and he expresses that by taking erotic pictures of women he’s been with, and some he hasn’t. Trish complements him perfectly because she’s an exhibitionist and revels in the fact that he’s taking pictures of video of her.

“Turn the viewfinder to me. I want to see the moment I swallow your come.”

Eric is just a bit uptight in this. He has recovered from his accident but he has a lot of hang ups. He has his scars and women are not flocking to him the way they used to before. His brother is in rehab and he’s back to moonlighting as a fighter to make extra money to pay for that. He immediately catches the attention of Trish, who is starting out as a ring girl. Trish has her own issues, coming from a broken family where her mother has always used her. She’s trying to make it in Vegas but after so many years, it’s not working out for her.

I really liked his intensity and all his leashed issues. He has such a good heart and at times doesn’t know how to handle those feelings and prefers to keep them bottled up. Trish on the other hand I wasn’t too sold on and I think my few issues with her were the reason why this wasn’t a 5 star read for me. She’s a bit too materialistic and self centered. I just didn’t agree with a lot of her reasoning. And there’s the fact that she threw in her ex-girlfriend in for a threesome that was really all about her. I wanted to see more of her taking care of Eric and including him, letting him in.

Still as hot as I’ve always expected from this series, BARE KNUCKLE will sizzle the panties right off of you!

About Katie Porter

Both are multi-published in several romance genres. Carrie holds an MA in history, loves movies, and has no fear of gross things like dissecting formaldehyde sharks. Her two daughters aren’t appreciative. Lorelie is a US Army veteran and true-crime devotee, whose three boys love when she screams like a little girl around spiders.

All five of Katie Porters’s “Vegas Top Guns” contemporary erotic romances have received 4½ Stars from RT BookReviews. These books are “impressive and incredibly well done,” and will “move Fifty Shades of Grey to the children’s section.” The third title, Hold ’Em, won the 2012 RT Reviewers’ Choice award for Best Ebook Erotic Romance, and the m/m Christmas-themed Came Upon a Midnight Clear was nominated for Best Book of the Year.

In January 2013, Lead and Follow launched “Club Devant,”a sexy series set in a glitzy New York City burlesque club, described by Publishers Weekly as “deftly leaving readers with the welcome message that life can hand out happy surprises.” Its sequel, Chains and Canes, was deemed by RT as “racy and absolutely flawless!” and also received a 4½ Star Top Pick.

Up next as back-to-back releases in 2014 are the first three installments of “Command Force Alpha“–an adventurous, La Femme Nikita-inspired series of military erotic romances. More details soon to come!
