Review by Magnolia

Khariss Lloyd is attracted to Dylan Sanders the moment he walks into her dance studio for tango lessons. Something about Dylan's boy-next-door good looks and friendly smile make her want to get to know him better.

Dylan suspected he was being set up when his sister called on him for a favor, then left him standing alone and partnerless at a tango class, of all things. However, one look at the gorgeous, leggy instructor convinces him that for once he doesn't mind the matchmaking.

Khariss and Dylan are quickly swept away by a love every bit as scorching as the passion that flares between them — passion made all the hotter when Khariss introduces Dylan to unrepentant hedonist Marcus O'Grady.

In doing so, Khariss is taking the risk of her life — will she lose the love of a good man when Dylan finds out about her torrid past with O'Grady's exclusive nightspot? Or will Dylan get his own unfulfilled desires met with the help of the seductive owner of the city's most wicked sex club?

This story is a hot little read that takes on sweet romance, throws in sensual action at a sex club, and culminates with a little three-way action. It's is only sixty-three pages, but the author manages to combine all the elements of a budding romance with the hot, spicy sex we all want, even if we never get past reading about it. Dylan is sexy, manly, and even though he appears timid at first, he has no problem getting into the action after just a bit of coaxing. Khariss is hot and sexy. Her day job as a dance instructor keeps her fit and her partial ownership of the sex club lends us insight into her sexual sweet tooth. While at first glance Khariss seems a lot more worldly than Dylan, the author brings them together so they become a perfect fit both in bed and out.

Other than an awkward conversation between Khariss and Dylan when they have their first sexual encounter, I liked this story. The M/M sexual encounter seems a little too convenient, and though an actual set up is never mentioned, I kind of felt that Khariss and O’Grady, friend and co-owner of the club, arranged this little tête-à-tête. And although the story ends HEA, I have the feeling there is more to Dylan and Khariss’s story. And I can definitely hear O’Grady screaming out for more!

This is definitely a good bedtime read with your lover, or alone with your toys!
