A few months ago I read and loved, Absolute Trouble by Michelle Jerott which features a hero who is a stripper, and the heroine, an ex-police officer. The book is just wonderful. Well, it just happened that the previews for Magic Mike were coming out in theatres, so I had Channing Tatum's moves in my head while reading this book.(At one point the hero gives the heroine a private dance) So apart from Absolute Trouble, do you have any recs with male dancers? I believe this is the only book I've read featuring a hero with that profession. Thanks!

I know an old one - Lightning That Lingers by Sharon and Tom Curtis aka Laura London. It's a lovely romance.

I read both of these years ago and loved them!

There's a M/M one that someone rec'd here, I'm trying to remember the title. One of the guys is a cop. Otherwise I'm drawing a blank on any others.

Xina, have you read Fallen From Grace yet? It's so good!

Linda

I don't read much m/m, but it might be interesting.
No...haven't read Fallen yet. I bought it in hardcover long ago and just saved it for...whatever. Now I have it digitally too. I have to get to it soon. Also..the digital cover is sooo much better than the hardcover. The hardcover looks like a very sad Brad Pitt...in not a good way. Smile

You are very welcome, xina.

It's somewhat old-fashioned of course being from the eighties but I love it and its hero who is such a good man, a real sweetheart.

And I second the appreciation and love for Fallen From Grace.

I think this was the thread with the m/m rec that was mentioned (not too many male dancer topics I guess):

Xina, maybe if Magic Mike is super successful it will spark a new movement for stripper heroes in the romance genre. Laughing I personally will do my part to help this along by going to see the movie, anyone with me?

Oh, me, me! I'll go with you. Never been to a strip club, but if the guys looked like Joe Manganiello (Oh, Alcide!) and Channing Tatum, I might reconsider. Smile Actually, that book..Absolute Trouble got me thinking about how appealing a dancing (Hee) hero might be. The hero in that book is very yummy. IMO.

Thanks for bringing this topic up Xina! Magic Mike has got me way into the male strippers thing and I went and bought Absolute Trouble right away.

For anyone interested it's $2.99 on amazon and has been re-issued under the name Michelle Albert instead of Michele Jerott.

I love that book Danielle. Thanks for pointing out Albert instead of Jerott. So, when I read the book, those Magic Mike commercials had just started coming out. I couldn't help seeing the hero doing those same dance moves. LOL>>>call me shallow. Smile Anyway...enjoy the book. So good!
