The fall of 2011 finds thirty-five year old Samantha Dennison sending her only child off to college and generally feeling F-R-U-M-P-Y. Her loveless marriage to ‘the mannequin’ has become intolerable; her daughter and best friend have both advised ‘Sammie’ to get a life of her own. Her husband has his own agenda which does not include her.
Sammie finally heeds their advice and starts with a Kickboxing/Pilates class; ultimately, learning to pole dance. From there, she is well on her way to finally carving out a secret life and identity all of her own. The thrill of the dance and sexuality she discovers within herself is a potent mixture. She gets a part-time job as a dancer in an Indianapolis Gentleman’s Club called Jewels. She becomes the dancer known as ‘Diamond’ and very quickly catches the attention of a ‘bad-boy’ biker named ‘Slate.’
Slate is the ultimate ‘alpha’ male; however there is a problem: he simply wants it to be about exclusive sex; Sammie wants and needs more from Slate. Sammie is certain that she has embarked on a dangerous, cougar-type relationship with the twenty-something biker and ‘prospect’ member of the notorious Outlaw Motorcycle Club. She soon finds out that she is totally out of her league with Slate and the dangerous people he associates with in Indianapolis during the summer of 2012. Something big is brewing in Indy; it ain’t about race cars either.
Cindy’s Review: When life gives you lemons make diamonds out of it… No I know that’s not how the saying goes but its what the heroine did in this book.
Forced into a marriage in her teens due to getting pregnant in high school Samantha Dennison is lost now that her daughter has gone to college. In a love less marriage for 18 years and feeling frumpy Sammie’s best friend convinces her to start living her own life. Sammie jumps into kickboxing, pilates and finally pole dancing. The later leads to her taking a job dancing at a gentleman’s club. Yes, the mousy housewife has become the pole dancer Diamond. Diamond has come under the attention of bad boy biker Slate. She’s never been attracted to a “bad boy” before as she skipped that phase of her life by marrying so young. Now here she is at 35 just experiencing these things along with her first orgasm.
There is a lot more to this story than the book blurb would lead you to believe. Its chock full of domestic abuse, undercover ops, betrayal, and lots of sexy scenes between Sammie and Slade.
The quirky situations that Sammie finds herself in thoroughly keep you entertained through out the book. And as those situations constantly change you are turning those pages fast to see what’s going to happen next. I’m looking forward to the next book in this series.
