Imagine the man of your dreams.
The blue eyes. The unruly blonde hair. The perfect abs. How strong his muscular thighs feel as you dig your fingernails into the denim of his jeans.
Now imagine looking up to meet his gaze as he guides you towards his belt. Offers you a new life, a new destiny, a whole new world as he teaches you how to make him moan. Coaches you in the art of being sexy.
Would you say no? Could you say no?
Fletcher Novak is that perfect man and he just made Tiffy Preston the offer of a lifetime. And all she has to do is... everything he tells her.
With the popularity of Magic Mike, I'm frustrated there's not more romances featuring flirty and sexy male strippers on the shelves. Luckily the drought is over with Ms. Huss' latest release introducing us to the charming player with a hidden heart of gold who unexpectedly falls for a woman who always assumes the worst of him and denies the existance of love. From start to finish it's the sensual and complex Fletcher who holds your attention as there's vastly more substance behind his stylized looks which made for an intriguing unwrapping of the heartfelt layers that combined to make a hero worthy of the title. I just wish the heroine had been as engaging as Fletcher as he routinely overshadowed Tiffy. Despite my occasional irritation with Tiffy though this was still an immensely enjoyable read that I hope leads to more stories set in this world as it's teeming with energy, sensuality, and compelling characters.
Fletcher Novak seems like a man in control of everything. He makes a good living dancing in a popular male revue, has numerous moneymaking side businesses, and understands the intricacies of women like no other. His reputation though isn't perfect as there's a long line of angry women who wanted more than he promised them. With the future of the hotel where he dances hanging in the balance Tiffy Preston comes to straighten him out but has the tables turned on her unexpectedly as they begin a flirty battle of the sexes that changes his life irrevocably. Fletcher comes from a family of money who, except for his grandfather, were cold when it came to emotions. In every way Fletcher is hot, a man who embraces strong emotions, and soon finds himself drawn to Tiffy though he knows the low opinion she has of him. Under the guise of helping her win the heart of the staid and sturdy man who sees her as a friend, Fletcher spends many hours teaching her the meaning of sexy and the power behind it. While unleashing her hidden vixen he discovers he wants to know even more about her and show her that he's the man she belongs with which leads to a rocky road to HEA with her insecurities and trust issues putting them and readers through the emotional wringer. Fletcher's a delightful hero who's loyal to those few who own his heart. Even after everything Tiffy said about him and did to him, he still had her best interests at heart and protected her from afar. He has secrets but he never lies, he's honest in everything he does even when others don't want to hear it. He's smart too which all adds up to a compelling man who had me captivated from the first page to the last.
