People say I’m shameless. They’re right.

I like my work dirty and my sex even dirtier. It takes a hell of a lot to tilt my moral compass, and dancing as a private stripper for horny suburbanites doesn’t even register. Neither does hooking up with them afterward whenever the mood strikes—it’s one of the bennies of the job—but it’s always a one-and-done. I don’t do repeat performances. Ever.

Until I meet the one girl in all of Chicago not interested in dry humping my junk. She’s all I can think about, and that’s a problem, because I made sure she wants nothing to do with me. But I’ve seen her deepest secrets, her darkest fantasies, and they match mine to a fucking T.

I want her. Bad.

Now I need to show her how good it can feel…to be shameless.

I was surprised by how fast Jane succumbed to Chance. From the blurb I was expecting more resistance, but they end up doing some very hot and sinful things from the first time they met. This time I was thrown off the install lust because from the blurb I thought the story would have more choice and more concivising Jane to get into Chase's bed. I liked that despite the mention of the bonus dances, we don't see Chance sleeping with someone other than Jane. I would have liked to see Jane more. The way she was portrayed in the beginning made her seem very interesting, but she never developed or showed the full extent of her character. I liked the romantic side of the story and I will be in for the next books the author plans to write for the series. The epilogue teases just a little bit about the next story and who is going to be the next main character. The story is told from a dual point of view which worked for me just fine. The characters had chemistry, but I would have liked to see them spending more time together doing stuff couples in a relationship do. I know that what they had was no strings for a big part of the book, but I was still hoping. If you are looking for some quick and light hearted romance then this is your book.

Gina L. Maxwell is a full-time writer, wife, and mother living in the upper Midwest, despite her scathing hatred of snow and cold weather. An avid romance novel addict, she began writing as an alternate way of enjoying the romance stories she loves to read. Her debut novel, Seducing Cinderella, hit both the USA Today and New York Times bestseller lists in less than four weeks, and she’s been living her newfound dream ever since.
When she’s not reading or writing steamy romance novels, she spends her time losing at Scrabble (and every other game) to her high school sweetheart, doing her best to hang out with their teenagers before they fly the coop, and dreaming about her move to sunny Florida once they do.
