This was the first book I have read from Jasinda Wilder and I was not let down. This was one hot book! I am definitely going to read her back list books. It was one of those books that you felt like you were really there with them it was so well written! The first few chapters broke my heart and was such an emotional roller coaster. I didn’t want to put it down.
It’s a coming of age story about a Preachers daughter from Georgia. Grey has always lived by her fathers stricked rules.

Their story is one that will make you laugh, cry and jump for joy. Two people from two very different worlds. Most would think they were wrong for each other but in reality they were made for each other. Will their love and passion overcome their differences and their past? This is one of those books that you will not forget. A must read for sure =)
So how did I get myself into this situation, you ask? Simple: desperation.
When you’re faced with being homeless and hungry or taking off your clothes for money, the choice is easier than you’d imagine. That doesn’t make it easy, though. Oh no. I hate it, in fact. There’s nothing I’d like more than to quit and never go into another bar again, never hear the techno beat pulsing in my ears again, never feel the lecherous gazes of horny men again.
Then, one day, I meet a man. He’s in my club, front and center. He watches me do my routine, and his gaze is full of hunger. Not the kind of desire I’m used to though. It’s something different. Something hotter, deeper, and more possessive. I know who he is; of course I do. Everyone knows who Dawson Kellor is. He’s People Magazine’s Sexiest Man alive. He’s the hottest actor in Hollywood. He’s the man hand-picked for the role of Rhett Butler in the long-awaited remake of Gone With the Wind.
He’s the kind of man who can have any woman in the entire world with a mere crook of his finger. So what’s he doing looking at me like he has to have me? And how do I resist him when he looks at me with those intoxicating, changeable, quicksilver eyes?
I’m a virgin, and he’s an American icon of male sexuality. I’m a stripper, and he’s a man used to getting anything and everything he wants. And he wants me. I know I should say no, I know he’s the worst kind of player…but what my mind knows, my body and my heart may not.
And then things get complicated.
