Publisher's Summary

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.

The characters in these three installments interact in a way that makes for one fun novel!

Aces Wild, Book One

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, she hasn't been assigned to another one. 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.

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.

Ante Up, Book Two

Diesel Jones is a shifter with moon issues. His dream of becoming a Sin City Collector has lingered in the shadows because of his inability to control himself. But when Louie Fiore decides to test his merit, Diesel jumps at the chance. When he finds he has to come up against an incubus, painful issues from the past resurface, and he has only one thing on his mind: kill.

Sofia Cabrera is the new witch in town, and she's more than anyone bargained for. She finds herself drawn to Diesel, the sexy shifter, the first moment she lays eyes on him. When she finds herself the target of an organization of incubi, Diesel comes to her aid unexpectedly, and they end up fighting the threat together.

All In, Book Three

Ginger Elliot is a succubus on the run. She's in danger of being Collected, but her first priority is to find her brother. Even though she operates the biggest spy network in the supernatural world, it may not be enough to free her from the crimes she's been accused of committing. But keeping her deteriorating condition from the sexy shifter who's accompanying her is getting trickier by the hour.

Luke Jones is on a mission to save the succubus he's fallen for - not only from her brother but from herself. The two have been on the incubus' trail for weeks and finally have him backed into a corner. Luke knows Ginger is in trouble, but he has no idea how to save her.

What's Collected in Vegas stays in Vegas.

Boxed Set

Any additional comments?

A very nice collection of short stories in audiobook. It is very well written and so very interesting. This collection matches up with Sin City Collectors Boxed Set:

Loved this urban fantasy

If you could sum up Sin City Collectors Boxed Set in three words, what would they be?

Captivating, sassy, intelligent

What did you like best about this story?

I really enjoyed the relationships between the characters, and the story kept me interested and wanting to listen.

What about Emma Wilder’s performance did you like?

I liked the way she did the different voices for each character. She really got across Nevada's snarkiness, as well as doing an excellent job on the male voices.

Any additional comments?

I loved this collection and I'm anxiously awaiting more from the author!

Good Stories and Great Narration!

These were all 3 pretty good stories.

Aces Wild: Jake and Nevada. I liked the this one the best out of all of them. The story line and the characters were my favorite. And the twist at the end of the story was interesting. I won't give you any spoilers. The chemistry between Jake and Nevada was real and genuine. The sex scene was nicely written, not rated G not erotica.

Ante Up: Diesel and Sofia's story. I liked this book second best out of the three. Sofia was pretty cool and I liked Diesel a lot too. He was strong, handsome and had a good back story. The story line and plot was good too. Again there was sex in this book, however it was very similar to the first book. But that is okay. Not raunchy or over the top, no rated G.

All In: Luke and Ginger: This was my least favorite of the three. I didn't care for the heroine very much she was just too whiny or wimpy for my taste. Her brother was a D-bag for sure.
Again the sex was repetitive of the first two books.

As for the narration. It was very good. I really liked Emma Wilder. She does the men's voices very well, gives everyone their own distinct voice and reads with emotion as called for, ie. yelling, whispering, laughing etc. She has a very nice reading voice too. I will totally listen to her again.

Awesome book! Excellent narration..

ACES WILD: Jake and Neve

Loved this novella and I’m so glad I bought this as a boxed set. With the audible version only being $1.99 you can’t go wrong. AND the hero and heroine, Jake and Neve, was an awesome couple. They were teamed up, though neither of them ever had a partner before, to “collect” a very old vampire. Shoulda’ been easy but it didn’t work out that way: a witch, two nymphs and three shifters got in the way while trying to make the collection. Not to mention how very bad the old vamp was. They should have killed him instead of collecting him. Great little story and I couldn’t wait to start the next one.

ANTE UP: Diesel and Sofia

I think I liked Diesel and Sofia’s story better than Jake and Neve’s. But I do like witchy books a lot. And Sofia going up against a master witch like herself was very exciting. I’m not really into incubus and succubus stories but this one was pretty good. I did like Ginger, the succubus, and Sofia’s BFF, and I can see why Ginger would want to get the brother Damian, the incubus, away from the evil Mason. Overall it was a really good novella from beginning to end.

ALL IN: Luke and Ginger

Wow! Three great novellas. I just loved this hero and heroine. Luke and Ginger were chasing around after her brother Damian, who didn’t really want to be found, and when they did find him, well… No spoilers here. I found it interesting that Ginger hated herself for being a succubus, and never wanting to take what she needed for strength made her weaker every day. And Luke, who hated sex demons, because one of them killed his father, was the perfect one to fall in love with Ginger. I did find it a little odd that neither the hero nor heroine said I love you to the other, ever. Still, a great ending to this trilogy.

There was some great sex in these three stories without it being overdone. That’s why I’m not sure I’ll be reading the other boxed set of Sin City books by Kristen Painter. All her books are G-rated and I don’t really read G-rated books. AND she has a different narrator. We'll see.

There was swearing and the F-bomb was released 12 times.

As to the narrator: She was marvelous. She laughed, cried, yelled, was snarky and sarcastic, she moaned and groaned when she was in pain, she read with such emotion, no matter which of the seven main characters were talking. The New Jersey accent she has for Louie is so real, it’s just perfect. First time I’ve heard Emma Wilder but I hope she has more books. Every woman sounded different and her men sounded just like men, all with a different tone of voice. (OK, I just checked Ms. Wilder’s other narrations and I guess I won’t be listening to her other books. She only has this one and 3 others: 2 are erotic (yuck) and one written in the first person (yuck). Maybe when she has more narrated I’ll get to listen to her again.) She’s such a fantastic narrator.

Pretty raunchy

If you enjoy Kristen Painter and her Sin City collection you may not like this one. Amanda Carlson seems to focus more on the sex and lustful side of the paranormal. The story line was lacking

Who knew collections could be sexy?

Would you consider the audio edition of Sin City Collectors Boxed Set to be better than the print version?

I haven't read the print version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

My Favorite Character is Nevada. She's a bit of a smart ass and speaks her mind, while being genuine enough to tease her friends.

Which character – as performed by Emma Wilder – was your favorite?

Sophia. I feel she got the most out of the character, and portrayed the emotions the best.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

At places I laughed. At some I cried.

Any additional comments?

As an overall grouping I give the audio books 5 stars (rounded up from 4.5). There were scenes I was not expecting, but being new to Amanda's writing, I wasn't sure what to expect going in. I thoroughly enjoyed the stories and could have wished for off camera sex scenes instead of on camera, but that was my only real complaint about the stories.

Fun and entertaining!

Enjoyed the narration! She had a good energy to her voice and the performance was a good quality.

This set has books 1, 3, and 5 of the Sin City Collectors series. Each story is a short fun read with some action and spice! Enjoyed each one!

Book 1 - Aces Wild

Liked the second chance romance between Nevada and Jake, and that she’s a half vamp and he’s a hellhound. I would’ve liked a bit more time with them together, but they have a sweet connection between them! Also, the premise of them teaming up as Collectors to catch supernaturals doing wrong, is an interesting one! Entertaining story!

Book 2 - Ante Up

I wasn’t a fan of Witch Sofia in Aces Wild, but she’s better in this read. Sofia is in danger from an incubus, so she ends up teaming up with shifter and collector, Diesel. Diesel and Sofia have attraction towards each other, but some past issues get in the way. Enjoyed the read!

Book 3 - All In

This fun short read that features succubus Ginger and shifter Luke dealing with some unruly incubi. Incubi and Succubi are my least favorite paranormals to read about, but I liked how the author handled them. I liked Ginger; a bit too trusting, but she’s got a good heart. Luke is a total sweetie. Issues arise from their pasts; an evil incubus killed Luke’s parents, and Ginger’s brother is going down a dark path, so the road to love is a bit difficult for these two. Overall, an entertaining read!

not my favorite series

All three these books read like a 16 year old girl wrote them. The characters were simple and non evolved and the pot lines were almost exactly the same through each book.

Great books

I loved this series! I loved the characters and how they were linked to each story, it really felt like you get to know them.


The narration was easy to listen to and had e laughing in the right places (out loud on the train at times)

Yes there is swearing and some sex scenes but nothing that was wildly outrageous or that you wouldn't see or hear in any TV show.

I have listened tho the other set from Kristen Painter and while I like her work I did not enjoy her take on this series.

I would love to see more books in this series from this author. I would be first in line for more.
