Grady is quite the pantie-melting hot character. Being a dancer requires of him to have a hart stopping body but in addition to that he is quite smart, somewhat dominant, protective and quite the treat between the sheets :) He definitely has moves both in and outside of the bedroom. After his not that perfect past, he is somewhat lost and doesn't believe that he deserves to be happy. A big part of that changes ones he meets Al and he finally finds his place in the world, the place he can call home.
Similarly to Grady, Al is lost in her everyday life and her past. Even though she regrets some of the decisions she's taken she doesn't know how to solve her problems. She is quite reserved in her dealings with men and that doesn't exactly change once she meets Grady. She becomes even tougher to crack exactly because she is attracted to him. I definitely don't agree with quite a few of Al's decisions in her life and I think that's primarily what made the book not that good for me. The other thing that put me off a little bit was that Al was older that Grady. I usually don't mind age difference (of course reasonable ones) but I prefer the man to be the older one. It's just the type of stories I prefer reading.Read more ›
Grady is an ex-banker due to the economic downturn, so for the past few years he has reverted back to his money earner as a stripper which he used to do part time when at University. His new career takes him all over the states and he finds himself with a four month booking in New Orleans. His agent fixes him up in rented accommodation in an old mansion but when his sees his landlady, Allison (or Al as she insists on being called) he is hooked on this aloof and beautiful woman.
The storyline then proceeds with Grady’s determination to win over Allison and push back all the barriers that are thrown in his path.
I found Grady to be instantly loveable from the start and liked that the story was mainly his POV. On the other hand I did find Allison a little hard to take to, maybe it’s because I couldn’t get inside her head like I was able to with Grady. I did like that they were both at the mature end of the age spectrum (thirties and early forties) and that Allison was ten years older than Grady (there is hope for us all to bag a sexy younger stripper then!)
There is a host of interesting secondary characters and a suspenseful backstory that added to this intriguing storyline. The romance was a slow build which was a refreshing change to the insta love that can be found in so many books nowadays. Overall a good solid four star read.
It gave me a really gutsy feeling, one that had me hanging on every word. They just came to life in my hand sand I was swept along with their story. Grady used to work the markets – a Wall Street guy who has fallen foul of the economic situation as have many others.
But this guys has no intension of letting his situation get him down, and while it may not be ideal he is determined to make a living, no matter what. So buoyed by the fact that he always was able to conjure up a revenue stream he picks himself up and finding that his looks are his golden ticket he goes back to what he used to do in college – stripping.
Desperate folk take desperate measures but Grady has this one down pat and he eventually ends up travelling around shaking his thing! Eventually he ends up in New Orleans and from there things begin to change.
I wasn’t sure about Allison, she was a bit of a handful, and sure of herself but there was no denying the pull that existed between her and Grady. But as they had a professional relationship she was trying desperately to keep him at arm’s length – WHY??? Is she demented! But Grady doesn’t take no for an answer and when he goes all out to get his woman – he pulled no punches, she got the full on Grady pursuit and it was smouldering!
The author was clever with the detail that she imparted in her story she had her characters nailed and the twists and turns of the plot gave me time to feel the connection not only between the two of them but the one they were building with me. They will cause your heart pain – and I say that out of frustration because at times I could have willingly throttle the pair of them, they will make you laugh and they will intrigue you but above it all you will be rooting for them.
A great book – will definitely be finding some more of this authors work to keep me entertained.
