Dale is working his way through college as an exotic dancer. While he prefers to keep his performances public, it’s tough to say no to the private dances, even though they’re risky. Three songs, just dancing, no touching—Dale can do this and be handsomely compensated.

For Italian businessman Adriano “Gen” Genovese, the handsome cowboy tempts him into wanting more than one dance. Gen convinces Dale to indulge in another dance and a night in his decadent hotel room. He introduces Dale to a glittering world of wealth on a scale Dale has never even imagined.

As the romance between the down-home Texas student and the millionaire playboy heats up, they come to realize the only risk they face is losing their hearts.

I really love when an author takes a character, puts them into an occupation that is scrutinized by society and writes that character as a strong person with morals and codes. Dale really smashes down the door on the stigma that is strippers. I had a lot of respect for Dale in this book.

Gen... So he was just okay for me. I liked how he treated Dale at first. And I'm not saying he was crappy to him or abusive later. That's not at all what I mean. He became a contradictory character. He starts out okay with Dale's profession. He's understanding and supportive. Then later he's not okay with it. His jealousy was cute at first and then it just wasn't. He was so flip floppy with his attitude and emotions. I had a hard time falling in love with him.

So much of this book was spent with these two figuring it out. They would just about grasp it and then it would slip from their fingers. When Gen and Dale were together they were on fire. Steamy, sexy, off the charts. It was the mental part of it that they were having a hard time connecting with and it sort of latched on to me and I think it affected the story too much.

It was entertaining in many parts and overly frustrating in others. It's a passionate romance and worth a read.
