Synopsis from Goodreads:

 When a gorgeous young dancer walks through his door, a strip club owner must decide whether to follow his rules or his heart in the third novel by the author of One Tiny Lie and Ten Tiny Breaths.

Owning a strip club isn’t the fantasy most guys expect it to be. With long hours, a staff with enough issues to keep a psych ward in business, and the police regularly on his case, twenty-nine-year-old Cain is starting to second guess his unspoken mission to save the women he employs. And then blond, brown-eyed Charlie Rourke walks through his door, and things get really complicated. Cain abides by a strict “no sleeping with the staff” rule. But being around Charlie challenges Cain’s self-control... and it’s been a long time since any woman has done that.

Twenty-two-year-old Charlie Rourke needs a lot of money, really fast, in order to vanish before it’s too late. Taking her clothes off for men makes her stomach curl but Charlie tells herself that at least she’s putting her acting and dancing skills to good use. And though her fellow dancers seem eager to nab their sexy, sophisticated, and genuinely caring boss, she’s not interested. After all, Charlie Rourke doesn’t really exist—and the girl pretending to be her can't get distracted by romance.

Unfortunately, Charlie soon discovers that developing feelings for Cain is inevitable, and that those feelings may not be unrequited—but losing him when he finds out what she’s involved with will be more painful than any other sentence awaiting her.

Why I Loved This Book Boyfriend

    The book I am currently reading is Four Seconds to Lose by K. A. Tucker. I loved her last two books and she does not disappoint with this new one. Cain is, well, too good to be true. Unbelievably sexy, wanted by every stripper at his club, but Cain respects them too much. This man! He wants to help every girl he can which is why he opened the strip club in the first place. And he beats himself up over things that's happened in his past he couldn't even control. Seriously, Cain is perfect. 

         I like that he's serious a lot of the time which makes you appreciate his smiles more. I love his friendship with Nate and Storm. Its so natural and easy, the way they joke around. I respect how much he just wants to spill everything. Many times, in real life and in books, people don't want to admit to the bad things of their past. They gloss over them. Cain seems anxious to get everything out in the open. 

I haven't finished it yet, and I'm really excited to. But so far I'm glad that no one has professed their undying love. Seriously, they had to have talked only a handful of times. Each time was intense and memorable but they still have so much to learn about one another.
