Check out this great video Charlotte “Charlie” Chase appears to have everything: a lucrative marketing career, a handsome fiancé, a mansion in Houston. But a chance encounter with the mysterious, and alluring, Paxton Crown (owner of L.O.V.E. enterprises) at a pole dancing studio, is forcing her to admit that she’s disillusioned with her stellar-but-soulless job and frigid fiancé. The world of pole dancing pulls Charlie in, and the passionate, sultry environment has her questioning her life’s direction. Taking a leave from her executive position, Charlie becomes immersed in a world of independence, unbending friendships, and sensual power. The studio and the thrilling knowledge of an upcoming competition become the only bright spots in her conventionally basic life.
Paxton is crass and unapproachable, and despite the delicious way her body responds to his presence, Paxton has made it clear he’s not interested in an emotional attachment. As Charlie and Paxton work more closely together, Charlie finds herself caught between his vulgarity and his warmth. Wanting desperately to discover what has caused him to close himself off from falling in love, she pushes him to open up. As layers of a dark past are revealed, Paxton closes himself off further from Charlotte, preventing him from seeing how sensuous, courageous, and strong Charlie really is...And how this could be the love they both need, in order to live a life of not so basic things.

"The sense of place gives flesh to the bones of this novella...the author's clear intimacy with the greater Seattle area gives this tale a sense of being properly 'lived-in,' in such a way as to yield not only a rich setting, but vulnerable, near-unconscious introspection in Cat. The dialogue has life and the interplay between personalities is a lot of fun to watch as the plot thickens, then resolves. Enjoy folks, this is a fun ride! - Blake B.
