Review summary: A fun story that doesn’t pretend to be anything but what it is – two hot guys eager to jump each other’s bones.
It’s hard to flirt when sequins are chafing your bits…
Injured pole dancer Matt Lovell meets attractive radiographer Sal when he’s in casualty for an x-ray. Trouble is, Matt’s firefighter outfit is pretty convincing, and the longer he keeps up the pretense the harder it will be to reveal the naked truth: that there’s nothing underneath his costume but a sequin-covered thong!
I picked this book up by chance yesterday when I was looking for something short to read and did I ever luck out. Josephine Myles has become quite the writer when I wasn’t looking.
Pole Dancer is everything a short should be. There’s an actual story, it’s fun, the characters are fully developed and there’s a believable HEA. The dialogue is witty, the two characters, Sal and Matt, are really likeable and the chemistry is obvious. Although Matt was in pain from his injury that didn’t stop him from flirting with the receptive Sal who tried not to indicate how attracted he was to the irrepressible Matt.
The sex was pretty quick but I suppose that was expected in such a short story. Before the reader could process the attraction between the guys, their clothes were off to the races. 🙂 There’s not much more to the story in terms of content, and the author didn’t pretend that it was anything but what it was, a fun, flirty, fresh take on two hot men eager to jump each other’s bones. If you’re looking for a hot read before bedtime, Pole Dancer just might fit the bill, and for .99 cents it’s less than the price of a coffee.
