I’ll be home for Christmas…
The plan is simple. Break into the club and steal the money I need to save my father. The ex-military bouncer isn’t going to stop me, even if he is hot as hell.
If only in my dreams…
Except he has a curious knack for knowing my next step.
And there’s something dark underneath his desire, something dangerous. If he catches me, he might not let me go.
I’ve only read a couple of books in the Stripped series so when this one was offered free, I had nothing to lose.
Bianca has grifters for parents and they have involved her in their schemes dating back to when she was a young child. This time she is told that her Dad has been taken hostage by the mob and they want $50,000 or else they will kill him. Bianca agrees to rob from the club the Grand, where she’s working as a stripper. She been giving most of her pay checks to her parents to pay off their other debts as it is and she sees no recourse by the steal from the club. Little does she know that the ex-Marine bouncer, West, has been watching her and so he is there when she attempts to rob the safe. He knows she’s had a rough life and can’t help but have feelings for her.
He decided to let her go and when she returns to her apartment her mother shows up wanting Bianca to let her in. She doesn’t and then finds out that her father has never been a hostage of the mob. It had all been a ruse for her to get money for them.
West makes sure Bianca is safe and then gets rid of the grifters (making sure that they never come back into her life) and the story has a HEA ending.
There is really no Christmas connection other than the story takes place at that time of year. There is enough hot sex to melt any snowman so this is an Adult only story.
