This investigation is getting very personal... 

P.I.-in-training Valerie LeRoy is dying to get into the field. So when a client asks her to spy on someone, the thrill of her own case is too tempting to refuse. Instead of a cheating fiance, however, Val's actually checking out P.I. Drake Morgan! Worse, she ends up working with the guy! 

Their differing opinions on techniques, and the instant attraction, make the sparks fly. It's almost impossible to focus on their arson investigation. As the hunt for the truth intensifies and their passion rivals the triple-digit temperature, she and Drake learn why Las Vegas is the city that never sleeps...

It’s been a while since I’ve read a good romance/mystery book.  Sleepless In Las Vegas was a great way to go back and reminisce about one of my favorite genres.  It has funny and hot and also had some great characters!

Val, a Katrina New Orleans survivor has decided to move to Las Vegas and become a private investigator.  She starts to intern for one of Las Vegas’ top investigator.  But Val, wants to do more then sit behind a desk and answer the phone.  So, when a soon-to-be-wife comes looking to set up her fiancée because she thinks he is cheating, Val sees her big shot, plus, she could really use the money.  Little does Val know that the “fiancée” she is spying on isn’t who she thinks he is and he actually turns out to be her boss!  “Val really cracked me up with her New Orleans accent and her southern girl charm.  I really loved her character. She was feisty, but always a lady, A true southern gal.

Oh Mr. Drake Morgan. *sighs* You are just perfect.  I love how he loves his family and his dog.  A man whose top priorities are his family is a man to keep!  Plus, he’s a huge dog lover and that gives him extra brownie points.  From the moment that Val and Drake meet, I could feel the chemistry between them. Either of them want to admit it, but that connection is undeniable.   

If you are a sucker for romance and mystery books, you HAVE to read Sleepless In Las Vegas.  This is my first book from Colleen Collins and I will be sure to check out some more of her books.  Great read!
