Cain is my favourite Tucker hero of all time! I absolutely love him, and Four Seconds To Lose was just as perfect to me as he is 😉
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.
Quite possibly my favourite book of the entire series. Cain completely owns my heart. Though he was only in One Tiny Lie very briefly, he captured my full interest and he most certainly did not disappoint me in Four Seconds To Lose.
I loved how the characters lives intertwined, and I loved seeing their connection and relationship develop throughout the course of the book even more. They really were perfect for each other and I rooted for them from the very start.
KA Tucker is undoubtedly a fantastic writer. Her way with words has a way of grabbing hold of you and never letting go. She’s truly an author that you need to read, and if you haven’t devoured her work yet, you are seriously missing out!!
Buy it. Read it. Love it.
We are simply two good people with equally flawed pasts, looking for perfect futures.
