When a gorgeous young
dancer walks through his door, a strip club owner must decide whether to
follow his rules or his heart in the third novel by the author of One Tiny Lie and Ten Tiny Breaths.
a strip club isn’t the fantasy most guys expect it to be. With long
hours, a staff with enough issues to keep a psych ward in business, and
the police regularly on his case, twenty-nine-year-old Cain is starting
to second guess his unspoken mission to save the women he employs. And
then blond, brown-eyed Charlie Rourke walks through his door, and things
get really complicated. Cain abides by a strict “no sleeping with the
staff” rule. But being around Charlie challenges Cain’s self-control…and
it’s been a long time since any woman has done that.
Charlie Rourke needs a lot of money, really fast, in order to vanish
before it’s too late. Taking her clothes off for men makes her stomach
curl but Charlie tells herself that at least she’s putting her acting
and dancing skills to good use. And though her fellow dancers seem eager
to nab their sexy, sophisticated, and genuinely caring boss, she’s not
interested. After all, Charlie Rourke doesn’t really exist—and the girl
pretending to be her can't get distracted by romance.
Charlie soon discovers that developing feelings for Cain is inevitable,
and that those feelings may not be unrequited—but losing him when he
finds out what she’s involved with will be more painful than any other
sentence awaiting her.
book is so much different from the previous two in the best possible
way. The best in the series by far. Don't get me wrong, I really loved Ten Tiny Breaths and One Tiny Lie, but Four Seconds to Lose blew me away. This book was incredibly addictive and it was impossible not to love Cain. This guy stole me heart.
other NA books, this one also focuses on secrets. Usually it annoys me
when NA books kinda ALWAYS revolve around secretive characters, abusive
parents... Well, if you read NA, you know what I mean. However this book
not only didn't annoy me, but I ended up loving everything about it.
Well, almost everything. Charlie's real name (view spoiler) and I found it hard to believe.
this is a great series, if you haven't read book 1 yet, you should. And
for those who have read book 1 and 2, but are still not sure whether to
read this one or not, READ IT NOW.
