Product Description

Product Description

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...

I really like Amanda’s Jessica McClain series so when I discovered this novella I knew I had to read it. Aces Wilds is part of a multi-author series and I don’t know how it will play out, but it started strong with this short story and mission accomplished, I’m hooked.

Nevada had to pretty much raise herself because of her absent dad and alcoholic mother and life has been hard for her. She lives a life of violence as a collector of offending paranormals and her life is about to take an abrupt turn. Being paired up for a job is odd, but being paired with Jake is down right ridiculous. They have an history together and it makes for an highly entertaining read. I love how Amanda built this relationship believably with barely over a hundred pages.

Not only the relationship was credible, the characters are magnetic and the plot is addictive. I was hooked to the pages, which is a rare feat for a novella, and I must command miss Carlson.

I really enjoyed the world in which the series is set. The Sin City is colorful and so are the characters. Hints of the next featured heroes were dropped at the end (I satisfying end by the way..) and I can’t wait to read the next installment.

I was lucky enough to receive a review copy, but it would’ve been a well spent 3$. Give it a shot!

Amanda Carlson has done it again! Aces Wild takes place in Vegas, where the supernaturals mingle with humans. When those Supernaturals have crossed the line, a Collector (a bit like a sheriff in the Wild West) is sent to bring them in. Collectors get their assignments in the form of a card dealt from a deck - and in this case, 2 collectors with a steamy past have to work together to bring down a very powerful vampire. The action is fast paced, the supernaturals are fresh and interesting, and some scenes are as hot as Vegas in the summer! I can't wait to read the next installment!

HASH(0x9d7056f0) out of 5 stars 5 stars - "Aces Wild" by Amanda Carlson June 4 2014
By Book Lovin Mamas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Aces Wild is first novella to the Sin City Collector series and if every other book is like this one, I am already hooked. In Aces Wild, we have vampires, dhampirs, hellhounds, shifters, and witches in the city of Las Vegas…otherwise known as Sin City. Some of these supernaturals are apart of the Collectors. These collectors are told to bring in offending supernaturals to their boss without any questions. Some times though the offenders are supernaturals that Collectors don’t want to collect. Like in the case of Nevada Hamilton. She doesn’t want anything to do with vampires, even though she’s half one. She has her reasons why she doesn’t want to collect vampires and once you read Aces Wild, you’ll find out why. There’s another thing she doesn’t want to be apart of…and that is having a partner. She ends up partnering up with Jake Troubador who happens to be a hellhound…and well she had a thing with him. She doesn’t want him there to help with her latest collection even though, she’s going to need his help more than ever in this one. These two have a lot of tension between each other. ( I mean whole A LOT!!)

Amanda did an amazing job with character development and world-building in such a short novella. The action alone will have you turning the pages, at least that is what my excuse is. The minute I started reading I knew I would have a hard time putting it down. Let’s not forget to mention the drama that happens, when the truth comes to light on why Nevada was chosen to collect this one particular offender. I also want to mention that there is some very steamy moments between the characters…oh boy…very steamy! (I need a cold shower kind of steamy moments)

It’s nothing new that Amanda Carlson is one of my favorite Urban Fantasy Authors and in Aces Wild she did an amazing job in the PNR genre. I fell in love with the characters and the Sin City Collector storyline. I look forward to reading the next installments even more after reading the first novella in the series. Amanda did a kickbutt job on starting the series off and I want more from this series already!!!!

I give this book 5 full moons and highly recommend it to PNR readers out there. Need something quick to read this summer or right before bedtime, this is the novella for you.

The next novella in the series comes out next month…and I will definitely be reading it as soon as it comes out. =)

HASH(0x9dc617bc) out of 5 stars It jumps straight into the action June 3 2014
By Under The Covers Book Blog - Published on Amazon.com

~Reviewed by ANN & posted at Under the Covers Book Blog

In this novella by Amanda Carlson for the Sin City Collectors series, we meet Nevada Hamilton, a Sin City Collector with a bit of an attitude. She isn’t pleased about her latest assignment, especially since it means she is paired up with the one man she can’t stand. Sexy hellhound and former lover, Jake Troubadour presents trouble for Neve. But she isn’t going to let that stop her from carrying out her assignment. As they work together, they soon find out that their passion just doesn’t lie between the sheets, but also in their hearts.

I really, really enjoyed this novella from Amanda Carlson. It jumps straight into the action, revealing already well-developed characters with tons of personality. Nevada is slightly prickly, but when paired with Jake, it makes for some really interesting scenes. Their banter is one of my favourite things about the book. The way they bicker and the way they contrast one another is a great way to showcase their individual personalities while also creating some sexual tension with their romance.

For such a short word count, Carlson really made it work and I am thrilled with the end product. There is humor and there is action, two things that you can expect in a Carlson story. However, the twists and turns were a nice surprise and made for an even better ride! I’m very impressed with Carlson’s ability to create such a well-rounded story, full of emotions, sexual tension and action in such a tight word count. If this is any indication of what the other books in the series will be like, then you definitely don’t want to miss out!

HASH(0x9d638f3c) out of 5 stars ACES WILD has taken TOP SPOT in my favorite novellas list!! June 4 2014
By Readers Confession - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
ACES WILD has taken TOP SPOT in my favorite novellas list!! You're probably thinking what I usually do when it comes to novellas. They're TOO short and you can't connect with the characters b/c it's not developed enough. That is NOT the case with this one. This novella is great from beginning to end. Carlson explains this new Sin City Collectors world, while weaving a back story for Nevada and Jake and keeping the action and fighting going.

Nevada Hamilton (love the name) and Jake Troubadour are both "Collectors" in Sin City. Nevada is a dhampir who HATES vampires. Jake is a Hellhound. Oh yes! A Hellhound! I think it's my NEW favorite type of supernatural creature. LOL! He is 1 big and sexy bad ass! Jake is the perfect mixture though, part bad ass and part sweet and loving. These two have great chemistry together and made the sexy times THAT much sexier. The climax of the story was slightly predictable but didn't take anything away from the storyline.

There was no feeling of the story being rushed or feelings of missing information, Carlson was able to capture it all in this novella.

Overall, I LOVED this novella, it left me wanting more and I can't wait to read more of this series. I think this was a BRILLIANT idea! :-)

HASH(0x9d707144) out of 5 stars Fantastic new Series! June 2 2014
By Lbw - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
fantastic start for a new series! Loved it!

First this book pulled me put of a major book funk. I had not read a book in over two weeks and that is so not normal for me. I read this book from start to finish in just one day. It grabbed my attention right from the beginning and held it until the end. It was a fast paced book and the characters were amazing. At one part I thought I caught myself talking out loud to the book as if I could stop something from happening. Overall it was a fantastic read and I can not wait to read more from the series

HASH(0x9d4d3c0c) out of 5 stars I tend to hate when one of my favorite series writing authors switches ... July 9 2014
By DC13 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Ok I have a confession....I tend to hate when one of my favorite series writing authors switches gears and starts in with some other foolishness. I know it's close minded of me, I do! And it's not like I haven't been proven wrong time and time again...but I can't help it, every single time I find out that one of my go-tos has gone off in another direction I internally scream 'Noooooooooo! Why?!? Why?!? Why must you mess up my happy little world!!'
Enters Amanda Carlson......who gives me a great big punch in the throat.....WHOOOO HOOOO!
I loved this story!! (Did I mention I also tend to not be trilled with novellas....I want a longgggg book, not a blink and then it's gone....)
The characters where great, the setting was sexy and because it was a short/novella it left things open to oh so much more fabulousness to come!! Squeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!
Amanda Carlson gets better with every word she puts on paper! How cool is that!!
ROCK ON MIZ C! I can't wait to see whatcha sling at us next!!
