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.

Off Limits

by Misty

This is a slow burn romance. And by slow burn I mean nothing happened between the two main characters until the very end of the book. The whole book was them dancing around whether or not the other one liked them and if they should do something about it with some added drama elements from other characters.

I have read several of Vivian’s books by now and I have come to kind of expect some hot and heavy scenes from her characters. That was not the case with this book. Like I said nothing happens until the end and then when something did happen it was over so quickly.

I’m not saying that’s necessarily a bad thing. I know there are readers out there who would prefer the romance part be short and sweet but I’m not one of them. At least not when I am reading Vivian’s books. I wanted more of the hot and heavy and less of the sweet.

Also I felt like things worked out a little to well for the main characters. Every time they had a problem it was resolved instantly. I love books with HEA endings but I want them to have to work for that HEA.

Even though I had some issues with this book there are still some things I really enjoyed. This book was a quick read and it was a very cute romance. I thought Melanie’s son was the cutest and I kind of wish he was part of the story a little more because I loved him so much.

In this book Vivian talks about spousal abuse. I love how Melanie was able to recognize things were bad for her and her son and she was able to get them out of that situation. I also love how she slowly worked her way back to relying on herself. She was able to become a strong independent woman despite what she had went through.

If you like slow burn romances this might be what you’re looking for.

Mel and Chase, could it actually be love?

by Anonymous

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

Melanie is a single mom working as a waitress at a diner. One day, Chase walks in and recognizes her. Mel and Chase had gone to high school together with each having a crush on the other. Wrong side of the tracks/high school cliques forced them to not act on that crush.
Chase overhears some of the trouble that Melanie is going through and feels that he can help. He offers her a job as a cocktail waitress at his 'gentleman's club'. Melanie is unsure about this, but eventually does give in.
She has a horrible ex who has done horrible things to her, as well as, never been a dad to their son. With her ex, starting to harass her, things with Chase and Melanie begin to progress.
This is a sweet, little read, but towards the ending the flow/storyline just seemed to fly by. Almost going by at warp speed. I enjoyed this book, but just didn't absolutely love it. If I could I would only give 3.5 stars.

sexy, fun, and engaging!!

by LaurieBeemer

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. This was a very fun and sexy read. I enjoyed following the life off Chase and Melanie as they realize that they are both interested in each other, but for different reasons they have to fight it. Melanie is a hard working single mother that does everything that she can to make her sons life fantastic, but things do not always seem to work out. Enter Chase a successful owner of a gentlemen's club and someone that Melanie knows from the past. Offering her a job seemed smart at the time but the attraction between them was becoming harder to fight. Will they both realize what makes them happy or will they fight against attraction and stay apart. This was a book that takes the reader on a sexy fun journey of discovery and the meanings of happiness.

Off Limits or not

Great book, single mother Melanie is working at a diner hardly making end meets.
She was in an abusive marriage, but is now divorced and has not heard anything or gotten any support from her ex in 2 years. Melanie is about to lose her home at the diner she is not making enough she needs a second job.

One day at her job a crush from her past show up. Chase was always rich and out of her league and his sister hates her. Chase can't help but overhear her talking to a coworker about her situation and he offers her a job. Melanie goes o the interview but is very shocked when she finds out it is at a strip club. She rarely got out and has never been in a strip club. But she really needs money she is about to lose her home.

I love stories about smart hardworking women. Melanie was definitely no push over all she wanted was a roof over her and her sons head and food on the table. Chase is sort of a player and there are rules that he can not date any of the worker, he is very attracted to Melanie. All though a player I also liked Chase's character he stood up for Melanie and protected her when she needed it. He also cared about all of his workers.

Going into this book I thought he was going to be a arrogant stuck up playboy. He was totally the opposite and I loved that. The love scenes was good in this book but were towards the end. A great story and I highly recommend this book.

Xoxo,

Can he follow his own rules about no dating the employee when he is strongly attracted to er?

by Abegail Saliendra

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Can this two people who crossed paths again long after high school be given a chance at a HEA even if there is a rule of no dating the employee imposed on them?
I liked the way the author made an effort to provide a story with a heart, a hot and steamy scenes and enough problems that the couple had to tackle.

Chase needs to keep his hands off of the help, but he can't help it!

by ViolinVixen

Melanie's a single mom doing whatever she needs to do to keep a roof over her head and food in her young son's belly. Right now, that means waitressing at a small, greasy spoon diner, but it's just not enough anymore. The diner is slowing down, which means tips are slowing down too. Bills are getting more and more behind and she's on the verge of losing her house.

When her teenage crush Chase walks in for breakfast at the diner one morning, she has no idea that he could possibly change her life forever and very much for the better. Chase and Melanie have known eachother since they were knee high to a grasshopper, but never traveled in the same social circles. As Melanie got older, the gap grew between the haves and the have-nots and she didn't stand a chance of catching the eye the gorgeous, wealthy jock Chase.

Chase overhears about Melanie's financial woes and offers her a job. She thinks she's going to waitress at a bar or restaurant, so she is shocked and embarrassed when she finds out the job offer is to be a cocktail waitress at the strip club that Chase and his sister inherited and run together. Reluctantly after much hemming and hawing, she decides to take the risk. She's not only worried about being surround by horny, handsy men every night, she's worried about working in such close quarters with Chase and still keeping her secret crush from him.

The electricity between Chase and Melanie is incredible and their chemistry just jumps off the pages. The fact that their attraction is forbidden makes the build-up even steamier. The sexual tension between them crackles and is plainly obvious to those around them, but Chase has never stepped over the line and dated an employee before and is worried about the consequences for both of them.

When Melanie realizes that the big money is dancing at the club, she turns in her apron for tassels and risks everything to keep her home. Chase's jealousy gets the better of him and they finally cave to their desires, but with Melanie's stalker-y ex and Chase's snobby, meddling sister, do Chase and Melanie stand a chance of moving forward together?

Sexy, steamy forbidden romance! Loved it!

Sweet, Funny HEA- Another Hit for Vivian Ward!

by Natalie Johnson

Melanie left her abusive husband and is raising her son as a single parent. She works at a diner waiting tables, but business is slow and she has gotten behind on her mortgage payments and other bills.

Chase Taylor has always had money. His Dad owned a strip club and when he passed away Chase and his sister took over as co-owners.

Chase knew Melanie from school, but they hung around in different crowds. When he comes to the diner to eat, he over hears Melanie talking to her co-worker about how bad things are. Before he leaves he offers her a possible job and tells her to come talk to him.

Melanie goes to work for Chase and they get to know each other again. Only problem, the club has a strict no dating policy.

This book is funny, full of sexual tension and includes stalking and danger. I highly recommend it!

short read

by Anonymous

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. it was shorter than I expected, it took me less than a day to read. It was okay, since it was short I'm giving it a higher rating than I may have If I had spent longer reading it. I just hoped for more of a reason to root for this couple. I felt like I just kept needing more. I didn't mind the overall plot line. It wasn't overly outrageous or anything. just not quite enough for what I usually read.
