— SYNOPSIS —
Competition is healthy. Except Carrington Carter can’t ever seem to win…
Carrington has never been good enough, between competing with the ghost of a sister she never met and a brother who can do no wrong in their parents’ eyes. She’s convinced finishing nursing school will finally make her parents proud, until she finds out she didn’t pass her boards. Now she needs money, more than she’d make working as a nurse’s aide.
A secret life of late nights and fast cash may be the only way to keep the news of her most recent failure from her parents…
While driving to the hospital, she spots a gentlemen’s club, the Thirsty Beaver, and decides to apply for a job as a dancer. She’s danced her whole life—how hard could it be? The only problem is it’ll have to be a secret because if her parents found out, it’d be one more thing for them to be disappointed with her about.
David “Damien” Michaels loves his job with the DEA. Posing as a bouncer at a strip club is just another assignment…
Damien lives the single life, scratching his itch one woman at a time, while jumping his career up the ladder. The fact-finding case at the Thirsty Beaver goes perfectly until one gorgeous redhead complicates everything. She doesn’t belong there, and he knows it.
One look leaves him mesmerized, and he realizes she’s gotten under his skin. He knows he should stay away from her. It could jeopardize her safety and his case, but when he can’t convince her to leave the club…rules no longer apply.
Will the truth set them free, or will Carrington and Damien finally be consumed by their…
I drive toward the hospital I work at in Charleston, contemplating my next move. I pull into the parking lot of The Thirsty Beaver Gentleman’s Club. I’ve passed it so many times, but I’ve never really noticed it before. The place looks nice on the outside: paved parking lot, landscaped areas with various flowers, and shrubbery. There is even a little shelter area, maybe for smokers. The parking lot is well lit, and most of the cars are expensive looking.
I’ve met a few dancers before, and they always talked about how much money they made. I sit in my car and stare at the building in front of me. Could I do it? Could I take my clothes off in front of strangers?I’ve never been the shy type. I’ve been dancing in front of people since I can remember. I’ve always beenan overly sexual person, so how hard could it be? My parents would freak the fuck out, but if I do this I won’t tell anyone.
