Screw fairytales. The only reward Gwen Anders got from her rough childhood was a thick skin and hard heart. She’s content with her daily grind managing a top NYC nightclub—Eighty-Eighth Floor. So hers isn’t a happily ever after. She doesn’t believe in those anyway.
Then she meets J.C.
The rich, smooth talking playboy is the sexiest thing that Gwen has ever encountered, but she’s not interested in a night-in-shining latex. But when a family tragedy pushes her to the brink, it’s J.C. who’s there to teach her a new method of survival, one based on following primal urges and desires. His no-strings-attached lessons require her to abandon her constant need for control. Her carefully built walls are obliterated.
Gwen discovers there’s a beautiful world outside her prison. Freedom is exhilarating—and terrifying. When she starts to feel something for J.C., she fears for her heart. Especially as she realizes that he has secrets of his own. Secrets that don’t want to set him free.

That is, until one Tuesday night she makes a trip to the Viper and meets a very intriguing, sexy hot, demanding, man that will only give his name as JC. Did I mention Sexy as all hell?
JC is mysterious… His first meeting with Gwen wasn’t all hearts and flowers. JC knew just where to pluck and totally got under Gwen’s skin. He had no problem calling Gwen out for the wound up tighter then the rubber band ball state she currently is in. He offers her his help to “relax” but of course she flat out refuses.
But, was that just enough to get her interested?? She keeps denying she wants JC, but can’t stop thinking about him either. Deny all you want Gwen, there is NO resisting that man. His smooth talking, straight forward, dirty talking self can’t and won’t be swept under the rug.
