For Italian businessman Adriano “Gen” Genovese, the handsome cowboy tempts him into wanting more than one dance. Gen convinces Dale to indulge in another dance and a night in his decadent hotel room. He introduces Dale to a glittering world of wealth on a scale Dale has never even imagined.

Review: Dale works in a club as an exotic dancer to help pay his way through college, and he’s okay with it as long as the clients just look, when sexy Italian businessman, Gen, asks to chat with him after Dale privately dances for him Dale takes a chance and it turns his world around. Gen stumbles across Dale when he’s convinced to visit the club during business; he’s instantly caught by the sexy cowboy and finds himself returning and enticing Dale for more than just a dance.
This is a sexy little number with blazing passion sparking between Dale and Gen, while there isn’t really much of a storyline other than the progression of Dale and Gen’s relationship it’s still an entertaining novella that is great when you want a hot sexy read.
We learn the basics of both Gen and Dale but nothing really in-depth, but we do get a good sense of both characters. Dale is a man with a good heart and sweet nature; he wants to stand on his own two feet and finds it hard to accept help from Gen even when he really needs it. Gen is a pretty down to earth guy and treats people with respect, even though he’s a big businessman and has his own private jet, he wants to take care of Dale but respects Dale’s wishes.
Gen and Dale are explosive together and very hot, we see the progression of their relationship which is peppered with lots of very hot sex and we see the fall in love in typical B.A. Tortuga style, it sneaks up on them and bam they’re in love.
I recommend this to those who love great characters, lots of steamy sex, watching a sexy cowboy and an equally sexy businessman fall in love, and who love novellas that are just the perfect sexy read.
