A sexy stripper attempts to escape his dangerously obsessed boss while searching for his missing younger brother.
Stripping used to be fun, lucrative and a place for Dakota to practice for his professional dancing career. But the owner of Glitter Boys wants Dakota for himself and will stop at nothing to possess him. When his thirteen-year-old brother runs away from home to escape their abusive father, Dakota is determined to find him before something awful happens to him on the streets.
Patrol officer Reed hasn’t been attracted to a man in a very long time, but when he’s called to an assault in progress at the LGBTQ teen shelter, a young man approaches him, begging for help in finding his missing brother. An instant spark occurs, but he pushes it away. When the same man is attacked outside a strip club later that night, he discovers the desire is mutual.
As the two men learn more about each other and become closer, the specter of his obsessed ex-boss remains. In addition to that, Dakota has to fight the system to gain guardianship of his brother and keep him out of foster care. Dakota doesn’t know if the hunky cop he’s fallen so hard for can handle a relationship with an ex-stripper struggling to raise a teenager. But, will Reed be able to give up dating women for good and dedicate himself to their new family?
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of sexual intimidation, scenes of mild physical assault and threats of sexual violence.
My first in this series by Ms. Knight but certainly not my first book by this super creative word smith.
Okay, to be honest, I was not 100 percent in love with this book. The writing was brilliant, as normal, the characters just the right amount of sass, bad ass, heart stomping, and heart stopping, but something just didn’t click for me. That doesn’t mean I won’t be trying the rest, starting w/book one. It just maybe this pair of MC’s.
Dakota is doing what he has to to better himself, and at this moment it’s stripping, but he never takes it further than the dance floor and that’s starting to become a real problem.
Reed, finds himself insta attracted to this waif thin mess of a man and can’t help himself, his protective instincts come out.
Dakota, with his upbringing and his current situation can’t help but be warring of a cop that wants to help, does he just want help or can he actually want a relationship. You get why he asks these questions and its nice to see the barriers come down.
Reed and Dakota fumbling there way through parenting is priceless, Now if they could fumble there way through the rest of there lives! Such a great family unit in the end.
