Gwen still is pulled off just as a everyday woman that’s shy and needs a little push to get out of her shell, so she’s really lucky when she runs into Ethan Banks the owner of a local club Hot Spot. After a rather nasty break-up with his ex-wife, Ethan has decided to live the life of a bachelor, while running his club The Hot Spot, he has all the women he could or want, but when he sees a bit of a tipsy Gwen leaving with a lesure suit, sleeze ball, Ethan follows his gut and quickly takes charge and gets Gwen away and into a taxi, he’s surprised when she asks to go to his house, and trying to play the gentleman he offers her a place to sleep off her drinks, but when Gwen asks for a kiss before she leaves...but things go from innocent to steamy and Gwen and Ethan make love, the sex scenes in this book are not only very steamy but very romance with the very sexy to die for Ethan, who ranks up there with some of the sweetest heroes who I wish was totally for real, cause I would totally snatch him up! After the one night, Gwen leaves thinking her time was up and Cinderella had to go back to her normal life, but Ethan can’t get her out of his head and by pure chance spots her again , Gwen loves being with Ethan but still doesn’t see a man like Ethan being in love with her or want a real relationship with her if he knew whom she truly is instead of the disguise and a little white lie she tells him, Ethan on the other hand starts to finally get over his bitterness he found he was carrying after his ex-wife stomped on his heart and is willing to lay in on the line again for Gwen.
