A Modern Retelling of Jack and the Beanstalk
Jax was there to do a job… His mission was simple: go undercover, poke around The Beanstalk, take down the sex trafficking ring run out of the seedy strip club. The absolute last thing on his mind was getting involved with a woman.
But then he saw her… Harper took the stage and everything else faded away. He couldn’t resist the pull of the gorgeous, damaged woman. No matter how hard he tried.
Harper loathes her job… But she'd had few options since losing her sister and taking in her orphaned niece. It’d been years since she felt anything other than revulsion toward men, especially the ones that worked and played at The Beanstalk.
Until Jax… He was cocky, mysterious, and sexy as hell. Everything Harper didn’t need in her already complicated life. She pushed him away, but he kept coming back for more.
As the pull between them intensifies, will Jax allow his need to possess Harper jeopardize his case and the lives of dozens of victims? Can Harper let Jax tear down her walls piece by piece?
This is a quick and dirty read, with a dash of insta-love; a pinch of suspense; a bearded, tattooed alpha male; and a smart, sexy stripper. Enjoy!
A short sexy intriguing read that had me addicted at the first page.
Jax is an undercover FBI agent and his current job is at The Beanstalk, a strip club where there is suspicion of an underage sex trafficking ring which Jax is eager to close down. It is in this seedy club that brings Jax into contact with Harper, a beautiful erotic dancer who seems so far out of place in the sleazy joint.
Harper had a shining future set up in law, until she needed to step up to take care of her niece and mother. Hence she now finds herself dancing at the dingy strip club with little hope of her life taking a turn to get her out of the situation she found herself in. But then she encounters the sexy barman who makes eye contact and then things take a step higher when he follows her out to her car one night.
This was a cleverly spun tale of love being found in the most unlikely of places. The backstory gave the necessary darkness to the storyline and delivered a wonderful curve ball of suspenseful drama. The instant attraction and chemistry was sublime in the passionate tryst between the sexy pair. A definite recommend read from me. Four stars.
“With great twists, steamy sex scenes and electrifying chemistry from the main characters, this short novella will keep you hooked until the very end.” -That Wild Soul Book Reviews

She has been telling stories in one form or another since she was a child and decided her English / Irish heritage was boring. Instead, for a 4th grade class genealogy assignment, she weaved a tale of mystery and intrigue about her great, great grandpa chief of the Navajo tribe. No one bought it. Brandy lives in Pennsylvania with her husband, son, and a very depressed basset hound.
