From USA Today best-selling author Lisa Desrochers comes the third book in her sizzling new adult series.
If you play with fire…
Tossed out of college and cut off by her parents, Samantha West is in pretty dire straits. So when her rocker best friend hooks her up with a job dancing at a gentlemen's club, who is she to turn it down? Plus, there are rules to dancing at Benny's: No touching, keep your clothes on at all times, and never get closer than three feet. Unfortunately for Sam, her first private client makes her want to break every single one of them.
Harrison Yates is scorching hot, but he's got a past that involves being left at the altar not too long ago. Sam is determined to make him forget about his ex, but when she makes her move, it flings her life into a spiral of chaos she never saw coming. Because Harrison Yates isn't who he seems to be. And his secret will probably get her killed.

I am an avid listener. I listen between 75-100 hours per month on my iPhone: 60% fiction to 40% non-fiction.
In this third novel, Desrochers takes a unexpected turn and delivers a thriller romance. The progression of these three books in terms of plots are outstanding. Instead of delivering saccharine sweet one after another novel, the series grows. The story in engaging and offers a good amount of tension. She keeps you guessing about the outcome till the end.
I like that way she wound up little pieces of book one and book two in the last novel, like a little dash of nutmeg on the whipped cream of a steaming hot chocolate. Also, the transformation of the main character, Samantha (Sam), is well done. The supporting characters are excellent. I also liked the narration very much.
I give this novel a solid thumbs up and recommend the entire trilogy. I was undecided after the first novel, but the series goes in complexity. Give them a read.
I would not recommend this book to a friend. The narration is subpar. The voice of the narrator doesn't mesh with the characters.
No, I would not recommend this book to my friends. I honestly feel the narrators voice will either make or break a book. In this case, it broke it!! I still have 5 hours left and not sure I can honestly finish listening to the title.
Don't feel this was the right "voice" for the characters.
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Awesome - I didn't see this book coming.... I hit me at full force and garbed my attention so hard i was spinning... It was thrilling, Hot and just Fabulous !!
Samantha is nothing like I thought she was. From the synopsis, we learn that she's been going in a downward spiral and ends up getting kicked out of school and her families house. She sounded like everything I disliked about her. But upon reading the first few chapters I learned that while she may have gone wild a little bit, she's actually a smart girl that's just a little lost. It's funny because in the first book I looked at Samantha as hitch in the grand scheme to have Trent and Lexie together but I never really thought about how she was affected by that. Trent wasn't just some random fling for her. She had genuine feelings for him, he was the guy she'd been in love with for years.
Harrison Yates...there's not much I can say about him that won't spoil everything. From the moment he walks into the club, he has eyes for only her. But he's also nursing a broken heart. It always worries me when the hero has been in love before, especially when it's so fresh because I can't help but question his feelings for the heroine. At first I kept thinking that she would just be the rebound for him, largely due to the fact that while they did talk his main focus appeared to be in getting in her pants. A lot of crazy stuff happens, moments where I hate him, times when I don't but at the end of the day I just couldn't resist him.
I think the thing that really pulled my attention to this book was the twist. I did not see that coming at all It literally came out of nowhere and left me just as confused as Samantha. Thinking back, there were probably a few hints but I didn't pay as much attention to them thinking it was just my imagination going wild again. Regardless, once the twist comes into effect, that's when the real story starts.... :)
reviewed wrong book for one more day
Ok after listening to all three books, this has been my favourite story. Blake can protect me anyway.
