My only rule? Never get involved with the dancers.

I’m in charge at The Pink Pouch, and my rules are simple: keep the girls safe and never sleep with them. Watching sexy, curvy women dance is every man’s dream, and mine’s no different.

But when Melanie walks in, everything that has been forbidden is more desirable now than ever before.

I’ve known her since she was just a girl wearing her seashell bikini top, but she’s traded in seashells for tassled pasties; yet, I’m the one hanging from a string. The more I watch her hips sway around the pole, the more I realize that I’m completely screwed.

Loved This!!!

So, I was asked to read this book, and without knowing really anything about it, I jumped at the chance. Vivian Ward is one of those authors that I can almost always expect a good story, and she certainly delivered! A divorced, single mother had a second chance with her high school crush, and he helps her in so many ways!

Sexy, Hot Smoldering read!

by Stephanie Ditmore

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I really loved this book. Vivian really out did herself with this one. I really fell in love with Chase and Melanie. Melanie has had a hard few years being married to a controlling, deceiving husband who basically took away her self-esteem, and crushed her dreams of college and the future she wanted for herself. Starting over is never easy and she’s finding that out the hard way. Behind on bills, the mortgage and the diner doesn’t pay enough to keep her and her son afloat after divorcing her husband Garrett, Mel will do anything for her son and doesn’t know what to do. She gets an offer from someone she knew from high school, Chase. He owns the local strip club and offers her a job as a cocktail waitress, telling her she’ll make way more money there than the diner. Everyone accepts Melanie as part of their little family and the girls utilize her talents with makeup and hair. Mel and Chase are both feeling the pull of attraction, but if she works for him she’s off-limits that is if he can keep his hands off her. Such a great book, the chemistry is amazing, the sexy flirting between them, the subtle hints of desire from both, everyone taking Melanie under their wings and helping her flourish with her talents. So much love and family what’s not to love? Highly recommend this book!

a scorcher

by Ashley Magruder

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review... Off-limits is a a stripper novel that is a little BDSM in it too it's very sexual and very hot... I personally think stripping is the most sexual erotic thing you can think of to show a man... It's a dance that is so sensual in nature that men are just drawn to it... And that is what happened in this book... Yes he knew her since she was a little girl but Yes he knew her since she was a little girl but seeing her swing on a pole just added to it...

Really likeable characters and story!

by Jenn Allen

This is a quick paced read that had my attention from the beginning. I like Melanie, her determination to make things better for her and her son. Chase is protective but sweet and he is drawn to Melanie from the start. Likeable characters and a good flow.

Forbidden to Forever

Melanie is trying desperately to make ends meet, behind on her bills, a little boy to take care of all by herself. The money is not going to come in as long as the diner she is working in is constantly slow. That is until the day he walked in and sat at a table she waits on. Mel's life is about to change - big.

Cam knew her is school, the only reason he didn't talk to her back then was because of what the others would say. Those others include his sister. Now as the half owner of a nightclub, he makes his own rules. He overhears her with a coworker, and offers her a job in his nightclub. Now he has to decide if his rule should be broken or not.

When Cam asked Melanie to come work for him, it was partially due to his overhearing her conversation with a coworker. The other half was because now he can be near her like he has really wanted for a long time. He is a bit surprised when she decides to take the job. Melanie is a hit, the dancers and the other girls love her. There is also another plus of having Melanie there, he love doing makeup and hair. The dancers love that too. Things fall into a great routine, Cam cannot keep his eyes off of Melanie, the dancers love what she can do with makeup and hair.

One dancer suggests Melanie make even more money with this club, by dancing. All of a sudden out of the blue Mel's ex is back. He was abusive and a cheat. His texts are getting more possessive and agitated towards her. Mel informs Cam about this. She now has the girls, Zeke (the doorman) and Cam watching her back. Things keep on the track they have started on, until one night. Mel spots Garrett (the ex) and things happen. Just as things are about to get completely out of control, Cam shows up and Garrett is not giving up without a fight. Fight it is then, and it does happen, the cops come, and now the extra good things start to happen.

Melanie and Cam really heat up, and allow the heat to ignite. There are little surprises that happen throughout the book, the sister (the other half owner of the club) has an interesting bit weaved into the whole thing. There is an introduction to passion, and to her son and good friend. There is also all the other parts that lead up to the way this book ends, giving these two, rather three, a very happy ending with a possibility of more to their story in the future.

I"d strip for him

by Barbara Jacobs

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Chase and Melanie went to high school together, but didn't interact very much. They were from different worlds so to speak. Chase went on to run his dads strip club. While Melanie married and had a child giving up on Cosmetology school because her husband convinced her she didn't need to work, she could be a stay at home wife and mother. Her husband became obsessive of her, she finally divorced him and took her son and started building a new life for herself and her son. All was great for awhile until it wasn't. Enter Chase at the diner she was working at and her life again was changing for the better. Chase brought her an offer she couldn't refuse.

Off Limits - great read.

by Anonymous

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Off Limits is a good old HEA book. However it's set with Melanie a single mom, trying to make ends meet working in her local diner. Then one day a fine looking young man happens to walk into the diner. Melanie recognizes him right away and just cannot bring herself to serve him, but she's forced to take his order. Chase totally remembers her from school and always had wondered what happened to her. Chase and Melanie did not grow up on the same side of the tracks in town. Chase's family probably owned the tracks come to think of it. Chase over hears Melanie talking with her co-worker at the diner and about her money struggles.

His family's gentleman's club is doing well and it's classy. It would be an easy way for her to make money, working for him as a cocktail waitress. However, once Chase leaves his card with Melanie, she's not 100%.

Melanie's best friend and a letter from the bank on foreclosure of her home are enough to get her to drive to the address on Chase's card. It takes a while for Melanie to accept the fact of the business that Chase is running, but once she gets past all of it, she realizes how much money she can actually make. It enables her to quit her diner job and also to start to catch back up and work with the bank on saving her home.

This was a good read. I enjoyed it and will look for more from this author.

sugary sweet

by Valeen

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Off Limits is a sugary sweet romance. Melanie is a single mom working at a diner when she sees the guy she had a crush on in high school. He overhears her talking about needing to make more money, and ends up offering her a job at the strip club he and his sister own. She shows up not realizing what kind of place it is and is taken aback. But, she needs the money and takes the job as a cocktail waitress. Soon enough, though, she becomes a dancer once she realizes how much more she can make. And soon enough, she and Chase are heading down the path of breaking his and his sister's ironclad rules about no fraternizing with the employees.

Throw in a little drama with Melanie's sleazy ex, and you have a sweet, lightly sexy romance. I say lightly because this is a very slow burn type of story. They don't even get together until almost the end. Before that there's lots of dancing around each other (pun intended), with the sexual tension just dying to spark.

If you like your romances sweet as candy then Off Limits should be on your TBR list.

Fun, Fast Read

by Lbry2602

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
This is kind of a second chance book. Although Chase & Melanie knew each other in HS, there was no relationship because they were part of different crowds. But when they meet again, sparks fly, Chase offers Melanie a job and things move forward from there. I liked Melanie's character, she was independent, fought for her child, and really tried to do the right things to support them both. Case, at times, was a bit wishy washy for me, he was intimidated by his sister, who was a snobbish bitch. But, overall, a fun fast, sexy read.
