About The Book:
Libby Hill, a classically trained dancer whose dreams were dashed by chronic knee pain, runs a quaint coffee shop, The Bean, in Las Vegas. Although her days are filled with the aromas of Irish Cream and rich Columbian, her nights are filled with something much different – Libby transforms into Firefly, a seductive and confidant dancer at the infamous Tommy Rocker’s, a local topless strip club.
Desmond Carlisle is in Vegas for a week, desperate to get away from the daily pressures of his shattered home life and rock star celebrity. He’s keeping his presence in the city low key, opting to frequent quiet venues and cafés like The Bean. He needs a distraction, and he’s hoping one just might come his way in the form of a delicious topless dancer with his band’s logo tattooed on the small of her back.
The dancer and the rock star—it’s a cliché, but one blossoms under Madison Night’s attention. Desmond Carlisle is looking for anonymity and Libby has enough to spare. It’s the story of a woman becoming more than who she was before. Engaging in a fling with Desmond helps Libby accept all the parts of herself, diverse as they may seem. By the end of the story, Libby is okay with being a multifaceted person. I liked the way Night develops both characters without romanticizing what happens between them.
Firefly is a short, quick read and the sex isn’t too erotic that you can’t read it before heading out to work. Night’s characters are likable, real, and interesting. The writing style and the storyline were engaging and fun. I recommend this to anyone looking for a short escape. You won’t be disappointed.
Pagan Elements: None
Cover (Rated 1-10): 7- I like the bright colors and the font, but her face is indistinct.
