The bump and grind of being a male stripper is getting old for Grady, and when his cross-country tour takes him to New Orleans everything changes. He meets Allison Wagner; a smart, successful woman who is all wrong for him, but Grady just loves a challenge.
Sparks fly, and soon Allison has Grady rethinking his future. He wants to get out of the stripping game and settle down, but Allison is hiding a devastating secret that could threaten his plans.
Will Grady finally break free from his seedy, sequined world or will her troubled past forever seal their fate? On Bourbon Street, temptation is the name of the game for all those who practice the art of sin.

I was gifted a copy of this report in exchange for an honest review.
Grady isn't your normal male dancer. He wanted more out of life and he had it all until one day that life was no longer. He was a dancer but gave up that life and then had to start over again. When he is sent to New Orleans as a traveling dancer. He moves into his new apartment and he is willing to comply with all of the 'ground rules' that his new landlord has set. But then he meets Al (Allison) who has her own issues and is one to keep to herself. But Grady knows that there is more behind those cold eyes than she lets on to. Grady is driven to find out who the real Allison is and why she is the way she is. But Al has her own reasons for keeping her distance from people and now Grady is going to complicate everything that she was worked so hard to keep away.
Alexandrea knows how to write a story well and is able to keep the reader interested with humor and details that pull you into the story. When you finished the book, you feel like you know all of the characters inside and out. I felt like I knew New Orleans better by her descriptions of the city and the culture. All the characters in the book were well written and had real life qualities that could make you relate to them even more. I loved reading about Al and Grady. Their banter that the two had kept me turning the page and not wanting the book to end. Lindsey, Reviewer for MNP.
