As their relationship ignites into an erotic contest of wills—and a jealous rival plots against them both—Clint prepares to fight for a future with Anya. In this complicated dance, the wrong move could end it all . . . and taking control means total surrender.

I really enjoyed this story of a curvy model/actress who is attracted to a sexy stripper Dom. I loved the character Anya who despite having body image issues, loves herself and her friends. She is a smart, funny and attractive woman who has been ogling Clint, a super sexy stripper and Dom at Club Inferno. Her past experience leaves her hesitant of approaching him so she has contented herself by checking him out in his swimsuit daily. Clint has a dream of opening his own bar and works tirelessly to make his dream a reality. He is also very attracted to Anya and finally has the chance to connect with her. I found this story very interesting as I had a hard time imagining a stripper as a Dom but Jamie K. Schmidt helped me see that Clint is a very strong and dominate man. I loved how their relationship slowly developed with all the ups and downs new couples experience. This romance has humor, drama and sexual chemistry beautifully blended to make this a wonderful read. This author also tackles negative body images wonderfully and though I did not read the first book in this series (I plan to now) I do not believe readers need to, to enjoy this romance. ~Booklover Sue
