Synopsis (Goodreads):
Welcome to Vegas. Home of the Sin City Collectors. The job description is easy: Bring the offending supernatural in to the Boss and don’t ask any questions.

Nevada Hamilton has learned a few things since becoming a Sin City Collector, and staying away from vampires is one of them. After botching her first Collection, the vamp getting away after causing as much damage as possible, she hasn’t been assigned to another one since.

But when she receives her next playing card, she’s in for a surprise. Not only is a vampire her next target, but they’ve paired her up to make sure she gets the job done right. Refusing a Collection is not an option, but when she discovers who she’s working with, making the mission as difficult as possible for her new partner becomes her top priority…

Being a hellhound isn’t enough to protect Jake Troubadour from Nevada Hamilton, no matter how thick his skin is. Finding out he has to work with the beautiful dhampir, after not seeing her for three years, is a low blow—but Jake is a professional. He takes his Collections as seriously as he does running his bar. He’ll do whatever it takes to get the job done, but after that, he’s out. No more chances for the girl who wrecked his bike and scarred his soul so long ago. But even with his heart dead set against it, this hellhound quickly finds he’s not immune to love after all.

What’s Collected in Vegas, stays in Vegas...
Thoughts on Aces Wild: Vampires and hellhounds, babies! YASSSSS! I like my romances with a little bite. NO JOKE.

Neve and Jake have HISTORY. Of the carnal sort. They got down and dirty and then things went south. So being paired up on a collection puts both of them in a growly mood. Good thing they have snarly personalities and can put up with all the barbs and sharp elbows that are being thrown.

FYI, hellhounds might be my new favorite shifter. Badass, nearly indestructible hound? OH, YEAH. (Don't tell the wolves I said that, btw.)

I liked this book. It was fast and hard-hitting with just the right balance of longing looks and sudden gropings. That's what life's all about, man. Balance. Or something.
