Isabella Natale is living a double life.  By day she turns out desserts in the family bakery.  But at night she transforms into The Crimson Rose, Chicago’s hottest exotic dancer, an enigmatic siren whose velvet mask and G-string drive men wild.  Nobody knows about her secret—not even Nick Santori, the strip club’s hot new bodyguard…and her first crush.  He’d always treated little “Izzy” as just another sweet kid.  But there’s nothing sweet about his sizzling reaction to Rose… So what’s a girl to do but show the man of her dreams that while it’s okay to look it’s much better to touch?

 

This is definitely one of the best Blaze’s I’ve read in a long damned time.  The relationship between Izzy and Nick is hot as hell from their first meeting and gets more combustible with each encounter.  Both had issues to overcome I could totally identify with, and they acted like adults around each other.  The author could easily have slid into the tried and true “misunderstanding/miscommunication” plot line, but she didn’t…she made them face their mistakes and deal with them as grown-ups who are totally hot for each other.  Pick this one up, I can promise you won’t be disappointed!
