but maybe she could swing a one-night stand.
After all, he's just a stripper,
so no need to worry about the future... or a broken heart.
Kendall has it all: a soaring law career, a six-figure salary, and an apartment overlooking the Chicago River. Her life couldn’t get better; at least that’s what she thinks before she hosts a bachelorette party for her younger cousin, Ruthie.
What starts out as a low-key soiree quickly escalates to an evening of debauchery when two strippers unexpectedly show up. During the men’s ceremonial disrobing, Kendall can’t keep her eyes off the dark and stoic Giovanni. Fueled by too many Moscow Mules and ignited by the male form, her suppressed desire smolders.
With the prodding of her older cousin Freya, Kendall pursues a one-night stand with Gio... then a second... and a third, until finally realizing she wants more than a fling. But, to take this relationship to the next level, Kendall must reexamine her priorities as well as her lifelong definition of success.
Kendall's story is the first installment of the five-book romantic comedy series THE LONELY SPINSTERS CLUB.
