When a customer gives Mia an offer she can't refuse, what else can a pole dancer do than make take a chance. 

Mia has noticed one of the patron at her bar where she dances before. He's very interested in her and she knows it. One evening after work Lawrence propositions her. He will pay her to be his hostess in Italy for two weeks. Feeling that this offer is a lifeline for Mia and her roommate, Mia accepts. 

Lawrence is quite taken with Mia and hopes to get to know her when she's working for him the next two weeks. He doesn't want her to think that sleeping with him is part of the job, but with the attract these two have for each other, he's sure that it won't be long before they hit the sheets. 

Although I really enjoyed this short story it was a little predictable. I knew there would be some secret that would be revealed and so forth and so on. However the writing was well posed and the sexy scenes just sexy enough that it still gets some good points. 

Description:
Can mixing business and pleasure ever result in a happy ending?

When sexy, rich Lawrence Russo asks Mia to come and work for him in Italy for two weeks, she jumps at the chance. After all, it beats pole dancing, and the salary he offers her is practically obscene.

A relationship quickly begins to develop between the two, but Mia can't help but wonder if Lawrence's feelings for her are genuine or if he feels he's just paying for a service.

Even if their relationship is strong enough to survive her insecurities, what will happen when somebody from her past shows up and threatens to reveal her deepest, darkest secret?
