~ A Novella ~

B.L. Wilde
Jo Matthews

Ryan Lawson has almost everything he wants. A Capo to the Valenti Family Mafia, the world is at his fingertips and the ladies all drop their panties at his signature smirk. All but one, anyway, and she happens to be the only one he wants.

On the run from a horrible past, Trixie finds herself accepting a job as an exotic dancer in a club run by the mafia. Left without a choice, she begins to date the Boss’ son while lusting after someone else.

Everything changes when Ryan is offered a chance to win a weekend with the woman he desires. All he has to do is roll the dice. The rest is up to fate.

What will happen when their worlds collide? Will a mutual attraction turn into something more? Or will the dangers they face be enough to keep them apart for good?

My Thoughts: This book is not for the faint of heart or for those who are easily offended. B.L. Wilde and Jo Matthews know how to tell an erotic tale. This one in particular dealt with the world of the mafia, which meant that things were very dangerous. I've enjoyed these ladies' other works so I was looking forward in reading this collaborative work.

The novella started off very strong. Right away we come to learn that Siena aka Trixie was in danger and only came to work at the strip club to earn some sort of living. Her past was briefly mentioned but it was enough to make one feel some sympathy towards her. Things became very interesting when Trixie met Ryan. These two were immediately attracted to each other and had you wondering whether or not they will get together, especially when Trixie began to date Tony. 

The story went back and forth between Trixie and Ryan's point of view. I enjoyed reading the chapters when the story was being told through Trixie's eyes but I was not a big fan of Ryan's chapters. Though I do not mind foul language as much, I thought that it was excessively done when Ryan was telling the story. Also, it was a little irritating that Ryan only seemed to focus on Trixie's private parts. However, Ryan had a good side to him that I couldn't help but find him attractive and had me rooting for him to win the bet to be with Trixie.

B.L. Wilde and Jo Matthews know how to make things steamy. The sex scenes were sexy and made one want to fan herself. I only wish that they were able to expand more on the story and concentrate more on the romance factor to make the two main character's attraction to each other stronger.

Overall, this was an enticing novella. Yes, I felt a little uncomfortable with the foul language, but I could not help but get captivated with the world that these two authors created. I am very interested to find out what would happen to our main characters. I rate it:



I took my place right by the pole, and even though the room was nearly pitch black, I could feel several people watching me. When the music started and the lights came on over the stage, I placed one hand on the pole and circled it, making eye contact with as many of the men in the front as I could. I made it all the way around and then bucked my hips into the cold metal, sliding up and down a few times before spinning around it again.

I had a few tricks in my arsenal, but I wanted to save those for a little later on in the song. Still gripping the pole, I walked halfway around so my back was to the crowd. There were loud catcalls and wolf whistles when I started shaking my hips to the beat of the music. They got even louder as I hooked my left leg around the pole and spun in quick circles until my ass was on the ground and the pole was between my legs. Using my hands as leverage, I planted my feet and lifted my hips, thrusting against the shiny object seductively.

Men from the tables in the back of the room rose from their seats and were closing in on the stage area. Figuring it was now or never, I got to my feet and shimmied around again. Facing away from the audience, I placed my hands high on the pole and jumped up, straddling it and squeezing my thighs together to hold me in place. Arching my back, I released my hands and used my stomach muscles to support me as I flashed some cleavage at the patrons. After a few seconds of holding the position and nearly falling out of my top, I straightened up and slid my way down the pole, shaking my ass and earning more whistles.

When I spun around, my eyes met with Ryan’s for a brief moment. I couldn’t help but smirk at him and toss my hair over my shoulder as I continued to dance. Was it possible that god-like creature wanted me? The mere thought of it turned me on more than anything ever had.

I made a full circle on the pole when I saw him waving a hundred dollar bill around, trying to get me to come over. Feeling overly confident and wanting to fuck with him a bit, I sauntered over and shimmied my hips just inches from his face. His eyes were locked on my covered pussy, and I could have sworn I saw him lick his lips. An image of him between my legs flashed through my mind, and I felt myself getting damp with arousal. Shaking my head slightly to clear it, I continued with my dance.

Every time Ryan reached up with the money, I backed away so he couldn’t touch me. He wasn’t supposed to touch me anyway. At least…I didn’t think he was. None of the customers were ever allowed to touch the dancers according to what I’d been told. Carlo had said that Ryan ran the club, though, so I wondered if that meant he was an exception and could do what he wanted. That thought both thrilled and terrified me.

Still, I shook my head with a smirk on my face and sunk down to my hands and knees. His eyes were focused on my tits, which were nearly bursting out of my bikini top as I began to make my way toward him, so without him even noticing, I pulled the money from his hand with my teeth.

“Thanks,” I winked as I rose to my feet and headed back to the pole to finish the song. I could feel his eyes boring into me until the lights went out and I collected my tips.
