Four Seconds To Lose

Four Seconds To Lose (Ten Tiny Breaths #3) by K.A Tucker

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.

Owning 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.

Twenty-two-year-old 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.

Unfortunately, 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.

Manda's 4 Star Review:

Charlie Rourke is in trouble. She is in way over her head and needs to get away, but first she needs to make a lot of money in a short amount of time. When a friend from dance class suggests she come and interview for a job at the strip club she works at it seems the perfect solution. Charlie is a skilled actress and dancer and believes she can pull this act off long enough to make the money she needs to disappear. Only problem is the longer she is there the more complicated her situation becomes and the more she finds herself drawn to her boss.

Cain isn't you typical strip club owner he has strict rules that include not sleeping with the dancers and keeping them from selling more than their dances. Attempting to make amends for a troubled past Cain takes care of the girls that work for him. He gives them a safe place to work and helps them when they get in trouble. When he hires the new girl Charlie he is instantly intrigued by her but determined to keep his own rules, he tries to stay away. The harder he tries to stay away the more he is drawn to her. He knows she is hiding something and he wants to help but the secret she keeps could get them all killed.

This is such a good series. I have been hooked since reading Ten Tiny Breaths and was looking forward to this book. I love Cain and think he may be my new favorite character from this series. He is not what you typically expect when you think strip club owner and you can't help but love him. Lots of interesting twists in this book that keep it from being your typical “girl in trouble, sexy bad boy saves her story”The entire story keeps you drawn in and makes it impossible to put down. Definitely a must read. The entire series is fantastic and something you don't want to miss.
