If you don’t read any further into my review just know this:  If you are not reading Katie Porter you are missing out on some seriously hot books!  I thought after finishing DOUBLE DOWN that this series had started out on a really high note with a lot of originality and that it would be hard to keep up with that note.  Which is why I went into reading INSIDE BET without expecting much of it.  And boy was I wrong!

INSIDE BET had me from page one.  I started this and couldn’t put it down, literally.  The story is great, the characters are even better and the sex?  Well…lets just say that this book will leave you reaching for a vibrator or your significant other…at the very least will have you biting down on your knuckles and needing a cigarette afterwards.  And note that I don’t even smoke.

I think anytime you can make a hero as delicious as Jon Carlisle you already won half the battle.  If you like the rich and powerful type, he’s your guy; if you like military men, he’s your type.  If you have a thing for a man in a three piece suit, yep that’s him.  But he’s also the guy in really nice jeans and a white tshirt with a jacket and sunglasses, or the extremely sexy guy in a military uniform.  In case you need further explanation, Jon Carlisle is panty-melting hot!  And he’s not afraid to get a bit rough and dominant.  Where has he been my whole life?

Of course the lucky girl that catches his eye, Heather Morris, is not so bad herself.  She’s smart, she’s got her issues with her past but that doesn’t immediately stop her from being with Jon.  Their dares and extremely hot sex couldn’t have happened if she hadn’t been there to push the envelope.  Together, these two are explosive!

Then there’s also the friendship in Jon’s group and the issues with Leah coming to a breaking point.  I really can’t wait to read the next book and finally find out what her story is and why she is so self-destructive.

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!
