This was it. Their one-night stand was about to officially become an affair. Was Logan really ready for this? There would be no going back. It was all casual to him, but she knew from experience that when all was said and done, he would own a piece of her. Snatch it right away as he ran off to the next person.

“You're thinking something,” Woods whispered, lips brushing hers, and his hands moved up to her head, holding her close to him. “Something bad.”

She swallowed thickly.

“I want to know if you've slept with Jeremy again.”

“Seriously, Logan, as much as you talk about him when we're together, I'm beginning to think he's the one you should be fucking,” he chuckled. She shook her head.

“Okay, then, I want to know if you've slept with Lucas. Or Becca. Or the roadie with the cigarette.”

“The who?”

Woods.

“Do you want me to lie?”

Logan went still. Licked her lips and squeezed her eyes shut.

“No.”

No, I haven't slept with anybody since you,” he said, and she sighed as he started kissing down the side of her jaw. “But that doesn't mean I haven't wanted to.”

“Oh?”

“I haven't because I knew it would bother you,” Woods breathed, his tongue trailing down her neck. She let her head drop back.

“Very generous of you, sir.”

“I'm like the Santa Claus of sex.”

“Disgusting analogy, never use it again.”

Would it bother you if I did?” he asked. She opened her eyes and stared at the ceiling.

“I don't know,” she was honest. “Yes? I wish I was as sexually open and free and cool as you are, but I'm just… boring. I wouldn't stop you, though. I understand. Just… maybe not do anything in front of me, please.”

He shocked her then by bursting out laughing. He stepped back and draped his arms around her waist.

“Did you just politely ask me not to fuck around with other people in front of you?” Woods double checked. Logan felt her cheeks go up in flames.

“I'm just trying to be nice.”

“Fuck being nice,” he shook his head. “Be honest – with me, and yourself. If you want to cut my nuts off every time I hit on someone, tell me. If you want to watch while I fuck Lucas on the tour bus, definitely tell me. Why do you make everything about everyone else?”

That brought her up short.

“I… I don't,” she tried to argue, but he shook his head.

“That first night together, you were so concerned about Jeremy, about what people would think. Same thing when we talked the other day. And just now, it's like you don't give a shit about what you really want – so long as I'm comfortable. I mean, sure, it's nice of you. It's too nice. Who taught you that you shouldn't ask for the things you want?” he asked.

She sucked her bottom lip between her teeth and bit down so hard, she whimpered. Woods noticed, his eyes dropping to her mouth. Then he leaned down to kiss the sting.

“I don't know,” she breathed. “I don't know what I want. I don't want to think about you sleeping with other people. But I don't want to stop you, I don't. I… it…” she searched for the words.

“Poor lost little Logan,” he whispered, pulling at the draw string on her shorts. “But not really lost, are you? I think I get it. People are always treating you like this delicate little doll. Like you're breakable. But you're not.”

“I'm not,” she groaned, pressing her forehead to his and running her hands over his shoulders.

“People handle you like you're glass,” he kept going, and she started to shiver.

“They do,” she agreed.

“What do you want to be handled like?”

She took a deep breath.

Barbed wire.

His hands were suddenly clenching her biceps so hard, she cried out in pain. Pressed her palms against his chest as she stared up at him. His eyes blazed down at her, so full of desire and danger, finally taking on a mossy green hue.

They'd barely touched, and she was already panting.

“You better watch what you ask for. I'm not like all these other fucking guys in your life,” he growled. “I have no fucking problem with treating you as roughly as you can handle.”

“You think you can really do that?” she gasped, pushing him.

Slow Dancing is sexy and seductive, both on and off the dance floor. It's a slow build that you don't know where it's going but you enjoy the ride getting there.

“It's okay to like all the crayons in the box, Woods. It's not okay to try and convince me you don't.
...I’ll always like all the crayons, I can't change that, you're right. Wouldn't want to even if I could. But you will always, always, be my favorite color”


Logan is a pop star on tour who falls for her new lead dancer, Woods. Woods is not only an exceptional dancer, he's a free spirit not concerned with gender. Watching Logan and Woods dance around their feelings is exciting and sexy. Once I started, I could not put this one down. I had to know how it was going to play out.

Definitely unexpected in the most perfect of ways. A must read!

I didn't know what to expect with this story, but I did know that I adore Stylo Fantôme's storytelling.

Logan Cassidy is an up and coming pop star who is currently on tour. She is used to being isolated; as an artist who got her start in dancing early in life, she's never really experienced close relationships with anyone, including her parents. Thankfully she has one real friend, Jeremy, who is on tour with her. Things get a little messy when Jeremy falls for one of the performers on their tour. Woods is the aloof, cocky, sexy as hell male lead dancer, and he just so happens to be Logan's stage partner.

This is a story about complex characters: there is no black and white. Nothing is as it seems, and that kept my interest through the entire book. Every person has their mannerisms – some are inherited and others are learned – but at the center of everyone is their true authentic self. Some people are able to exhibit this from the beginning, others need the right situation/people to come out of their shell. Time is ultimately all one needs to learn who they are, and they need color to truly express themselves.

I love that this story was so much more than just a romance, and better yet, it was more than just another story about a musician. Yes, the main character is a singer, but she has faults and some sharp edges, but she is just a real person. The same goes for Woods. They just seem so regular! The romance was slow building and exciting, their chemistry is off the charts. I can gush on and on, but ultimately I loved this story and you should check it out.

I love this completely different take on a group of performers on tour. Rather than the often grungy, usually hung-over rock stars, this is a pop princess and her dancers... who definitely enjoy pleasure, but also know that they will have to keep their bodies in peak fitness to be able to perform. It makes for some interesting variations!

Logan is riding the wave of success after a video of her filling in at a mic test shows that she is not only an amazing dancer but also a very good singer... and managed by a family cousin. she is now on tour. As the story reveals, slowly, her lack of confidence and the strict control that she forces herself to maintain is well earned, as she has had a pretty difficult decade. So when she is attracted to Woods, her new lead dance partner who is also hooking up with her best friend Jeremy, she really thinks nothing of it, other than frustration. But as they become closer, her assumptions are proved invalid and she has to reassess. As we watch them fall for each other, but neither really sure of what it could or should mean, it is both incredibly sexy and cute. There is a tinge of sadness though as they struggle to imagine a future together, nor apart.

There are so many lovely moments, some really fun ones, and some rather sad ones. But I can promise that you will want to make sure you have no distractions, because once you start reading it will be very difficult to stop. In fact, I am thinking I may have to find time to read it again very soon, as I was so desperate to know how it was going to work out that I may have not really absorbed all the goodness that was there!




Crazy woman from a remote location in Alaska (where the need for a creative mind is a necessity!), I have been writing since... forever? Yeah, that sounds about right. I have been told that I remind people of Lucille Ball – I also see shades of Jennifer Saunders, and Denis Leary. So basically, I laugh a lot, I'm clumsy a lot, and I say the F-word A LOT.

I like dogs more than I like most people, and I don't trust anyone who doesn't drink. No, I do not live in an igloo, and no, the sun does not set for six months out of the year, there's your Alaska lesson for the day. I have mermaid hair – both a curse and a blessing – and most of the time I talk so fast, even I can't understand me.

Yeah. I think that about sums me up.
