“Dark, delicious, and fit to be devoured. Yummy.” CJ Roberts
“This author is one to look out for. The writing – excellent. The story – raw, gritty, sexy and intense.”
Bonny Bennett

A regular Sunday night in a Las Vegas strip club is rocked when a local oddball dies mysteriously, during his private dance.
Amber falls immediately in lust with the hot paramedic who arrives, and follows him outside, anticipating sizzling romance. But, her casual encounter quickly descends into a terrifying, twisted nightmare from which she is
unable to escape.
Five days later, and it’s Lana’s next shift at the club; she’s a fly-in-fly-out stripper paying her way through law school – she’s also Amber’s best friend.
Where is Amber? And what about the dead client? Was it an accident? Suicide? Or murder?
Finding neither the police, nor the club are taking much interest, Lana conducts her own inquiries, even though she finds herself the victim of a social-media hate campaign, and an ex-boyfriend who is sending her death threats. She’s desperate to uncover the truth about the death, but the person she most needs to speak to is Amber, who has failed to show up for her shift yet again…
Lana is thrust into a web of lies and deceptions she is determined to unravel, in which everyone is a suspect.

An addictively dark, psychological thriller laced with steamy romance, mystery, action and suspense; Twerk exposes the working lives of Las Vegas dancers behind the glamor – the challenges, the rewards, and the deadly risks.

review

I tried several times to get into this story. Whilst I appreciate what the author was trying to achieve here, for me the narrative voice was too sterile for me to make any kind of connection to the characters or the story.

Not for me I’m afraid.

I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
