Physically scarred ex-model Kyle Anderson leads two lives: he is a chauffeur by day, and an exotic dancer by night. His performance attracts the attention of Nick Giddings, a factory worker visiting the club to forget his worries.

Kyle was kicked out by his parents when a car accident on his eighteenth birthday left his face scarred. Now he works for his uncle's limousine rental company, but the pay is too low for him to become financially independent. So, he dons a mask and works as an exotic dancer most evenings.

Nick has been kicked out of school for a prank he didn't commit, and rejected by his parents. He is too proud to sell his body, so ends up working for a fast food chain until he can secure a job as a forklift driver. Meeting a gorgeous exotic dancer is just the icing on the cake. But when he is laid off, all his dreams come to an abrupt end...

This is an enjoyable read about two men from complete opposite backgrounds who find love.

Kyle Anderson is an ex-model who has been abandoned by his family after a car accident left him with a large scar on his face. With no other option, he goes to live with an uncle he barely knows. Besides living with his uncle he also works for him at his limousine company as a chauffeur. Because his salary from driving is so small, Kyle has resorted to living a double life. By day chauffeur driver, by night exotic male dancer. Kyle is incredibly insecure about his scar but the need to be financially independent has him stripping at the local gay club. While working one night he meets Nick Giddings.

Nick has also been given a raw deal on life as well. He was kicked out of his home at the age of sixteen and forced to take care of himself. I loved the fact that no matter how hard things got for Nick he made the promise to himself he would never sell his body. Nick is a positive influence for Kyle and helps him see that there is more to life than being rich.

Their budding relationship takes a hit when Nick loses his job. Kyle suggests that Nick apply to be a chauffeur for his uncle’s company. All seems to be going well until Kyle’s uncle suspects Kyle is gay. He gives Kyle an ultimatum: either get his act together and live a straight life or be gay and move out and lose his job and home.

This story had a very unexpected ending that I never saw coming. The uncle, who I thought was pure evil, had a method to his madness so to speak. The one problem I found in the story was at times I felt the characters point of view was unclear. It jumps between the two characters quite a bit. I was still able to follow along and it didn’t deter me from reading or enjoying the story.

Overall I liked this book and would recommend it. This is definitely a heartwarming love story between two men who have been knocked down by life but never let it keep them down. I found myself rooting for these two to have their happy ending. Serena Yates is an excellent author and wrote a very touching love story.
