So how did I get myself into this situation, you ask? Simple: desperation. When you’re faced with being homeless and hungry or taking off your clothes for money, the choice is easier than you’d imagine. That doesn’t make it easy, though. Oh no. I hate it, in fact. There’s nothing I’d like more than to quit and never go into another bar again, never hear the techno beat pulsing in my ears again, never feel the lecherous gazes of horny men again.
Then, one day, I meet a man. He’s in my club, front and center. He watches me do my routine, and his gaze is full of hunger. Not the kind of desire I’m used to though. It’s something different. Something hotter, deeper, and more possessive. I know who he is; of course I do. Everyone knows who Dawson Kellor is. He’s People Magazine’s Sexiest Man alive. He’s the hottest actor in Hollywood. He’s the man hand-picked for the role of Rhett Butler in the long-awaited remake of Gone With the Wind.
He’s the kind of man who can have any woman in the entire world with a mere crook of his finger. So what’s he doing looking at me like he has to have me? And how do I resist him when he looks at me with those intoxicating, changeable, quicksilver eyes?
I’m a virgin, and he’s an American icon of male sexuality. I’m a stripper, and he’s a man used to getting anything and everything he wants. And he wants me. I know I should say no, I know he’s the worst kind of player…but what my mind knows, my body and my heart may not.
And then things get complicated.
I was so very excited to read another book by Jasinda Wilder because I so enjoyed, Falling Into You. I did not read the description of the book before reading, of course if you follow me you know I don’t usually, but by the title and cover I knew that there would be some stripping and innocence losing. I however didn’t expect SOOOOO many cliches. I mean a virgin preachers daughter who runs out on her own, becomes a stripper, and falls for a bad boy. I mean come on.
Well, I pretty much read the whole book in one sitting, with a small break to go to work. It’s a quick read, it’s repetitive though. Everything was just so incredibly obvious, you knew the moment she was going to meet her love interest, and of course there was instalove. Don’t get me wrong I really loved Dawson, Ms. Wilder writes men really well. The female in this book, is just so whiny, she cries NON-STOP! She is way too sensitive, and innocent. I’ve been that preachers daughter, they aren’t that naive, I mean I’ve known so very, very many PKs and they aren’t like this, maybe one in a million, but whatever, I just tire of the cliche.
So overall the story is kind of sweet, Dawson is awesome, he overshadows the lameness of Grey and the overall predictability of the whole story. If you like the whole tie it with a bow, tear filled NA book, then you’ll probably like this one.
