When a gorgeous young dancer walks through his door, a strip club owner must decide whether to follow his rules or his heart in the third novel by the author of One Tiny Lie and Ten Tiny Breaths.

Owning a strip club isn’t the fantasy most guys expect it to be. With long hours, a staff with enough issues to keep a psych ward in business, and the police regularly on his case, twenty-nine-year-old Cain is starting to second guess his unspoken mission to save the women he employs. And then blond, brown-eyed Charlie Rourke walks through his door, and things get really complicated. Cain abides by a strict “no sleeping with the staff” rule. But being around Charlie challenges Cain’s self-control…and it’s been a long time since any woman has done that.

Twenty-two-year-old Charlie Rourke needs a lot of money, really fast, in order to vanish before it’s too late. Taking her clothes off for men makes her stomach curl but Charlie tells herself that at least she’s putting her acting and dancing skills to good use. And though her fellow dancers seem eager to nab their sexy, sophisticated, and genuinely caring boss, she’s not interested. After all, Charlie Rourke doesn’t really exist—and the girl pretending to be her can't get distracted by romance.

Unfortunately, Charlie soon discovers that developing feelings for Cain is inevitable, and that those feelings may not be unrequited—but losing him when he finds out what she’s involved with will be more painful than any other sentence awaiting her.

Here Are My Thoughts

Check out my review of One Tiny Lie (Ten Tiny Breaths #2)

Four Seconds to Lose was another great installment to the Ten Tiny Breaths series. Four Seconds to Lose followed the illusive strip club owner, Caine. Charlie, a girl trying to escape her past, gets a job at Caine’s strip club in order to get money fast. Neither of them intended to catch feelings. Charlie was a strong female character. She was dealing with a ton of stuff. She was the type of character that I would want to get to know: strong-willed and good. Caine was a sweetheart. He was caring and protective, but he also had his bad-boy side that came as a result to his past. The two of them together were absolutely explosive. I loved both their sweet and sexy scenes alike. They had a real emotional connections. Moreover, the plot was heart pounding. Charlie brought with her a danger element to the plot, and as a result, this book was more high stakes than the other ones. There was a certain action element present here that was absent in the Cleary sisters’ stories. This aspect made for a very entertaining novel. Four Seconds to Lose was a great read: romance and action!
