If you play with fire…
Tossed out of college and cut off by her parents, Samantha West is in pretty dire straits. So when her rocker best friend hooks her up with a job dancing at a gentlemen’s club, who is she to turn it down? Plus, there are rules to dancing at Benny’s: No touching, keep your clothes on at all times, and never get closer than three feet. Unfortunately for Sam, her first private client makes her want to break every single one of them.
Harrison Yates is scorching hot, but he’s got a past that involves being left at the altar not too long ago. Sam is determined to make him forget about his ex, but when she makes her move, it flings her life into a spiral of chaos she never saw coming.
Because Harrison Yates isn’t who he seems to be. And his secret will probably get her killed.
“Just put a big red stamp on my forehead. ‘Samantha West: Failure at life.’ Washed up at twenty-one.”
So, I’m going to be honest, I really didn’t like Samantha when we were first introduced to her in A Little Too Far. I found her to be very self-centered. (Now there’s a chance I only felt this way because I thought she was sleeping with Trent and, damn it, he belonged with Lexi… but still.) She just didn’t ever impress me as a good friend. Now, I can honestly say, I kinda love her. Turns out all I needed was to hear her backstory. Her life hadn’t been easy. Her family didn’t do much to support her. I really did feel bad for her. She wound up working at a shady strip club and as it turns out, things are going to get a lot worse before they get better.
“I could almost forget the rest of the world exists when I’m in here with you.”
Enter Harrison Yates, a mysterious customer at the club. They have an immediate, intense chemistry and find themselves getting to know each other more during “private room” sessions… and no, not THAT kind of private room sessions. They talk. They learn about each other. Ok, and there may be *some* touching… But, Harrison has baggage and secrets and the story takes a very surprising turn… and keeps twisting and turning for the duration.
I mean, wow. This book. I was more than a little shocked at the first twist. I didn’t see it coming a mile away. The events that occur as a result of that particular twist did, literally, keep me on the edge of my seat for several scenes later in the book. Mix that with Lisa Desrochers’ knack for sexual tension and steamy love scenes and I literally could not ask for more.
One of my favorite things about this book (you know, aside from EVERYTHING) was that it really provided character development for someone I wasn’t really ever sold on in the beginning. It allowed me to see a different side of her and better understand the flaws I saw in her earlier in the series. Harrison was also a favorite thing. There’s just something about a sexy guy with baggage. 🙂 He made me melt. His chemistry with Sam was fantastic. I really liked the two of them together.
Lisa Desrochers has really outdone herself with A Little Too Hot! She found a way to take the sexy romance and interesting characters and mix it with a healthy dose of suspense that kept me on edge and guessing at what would happen next. There’s a chance it may be my favorite in this series…
I received a copy of this book from the publisher, via Edelweiss, in exchange for an honest review. All quotes come from the review copy and may differ from the final version.
Don’t miss the first two books in this hot, sexy and sweet series!
