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.

Cain is a guy who is letting his past define him. He's doing everything he can to make up for his wrong-doings. Like, owning a strip club. I know, I know what you're thinking. "How is owning a strip club good?" Well, he helps his employees stay off drugs and he keeps everything strictly legal in the club. He doesn't even look at his dancers "like that." Heck he doesn't even watch them "perform." In walks Charlie, who's not really Charlie, and is trying to run from her messed up world. There's something about her that Cain can't get enough of. He watches her performance every night. Let me tell you, it's totally hot. They are playing a hot, hot game. But, lies always come to light right? Will Cain be able to save Charlie?

Saying I loved this book is an understatement. I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. Cain is an insanely hot character. (As is his best friend who I could use more of!) I felt for Charlie! The dark path she was doing down was truly scary and every time she was in a dangerous situation I was holding my breath. But, her and Cain's interactions were hot to say the least. The tension between Charlie and Cain was insane and you can feel it through the pages. Every character was placed and contributed greatly. Nothing in this book felt out of place. Have I said I loved Four Seconds To Lose?

Honestly, I haven't read the first two books in this Ten Tiny Breaths series. But, I loved K.A. Tucker's writing so much you better believe I'm going to read them ASAP! Seriously though, do yourself a favor and read Four Seconds To Lose. So good!
