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?

Business & Pleasure is a modern day Cinderella meets Pretty Woman story. Mia is a stripper, so men propositioning her is nothing new. When Lawrence Russo asks Mia to come work for him in Italy at his Villa for two weeks, she immediately thinks, “What’s the catch?” Surprisingly, there is no unseen motive behind his offer. He has watched her placate customers, diffuse tense situations, and talk schmooze businessmen. He needs someone with her talent and skills to help him with his clients. Both Mia and Lawrence are attracted to one another. So their working relationship crosses over to a more personal one. Mia has some self doubt and confidence issues due to the nature of her former job and the fact that she is not rich or glamorous. When Mia’s past catches up with her, Mia must believe in the strength of her love with Lawrence to overcome that obstacle. Will their love be enough to conquer Mia’s past and her fears? Business & Pleasure is about second chances, the strength of love, and happily ever after’s. Right from the beginning you really like Mia. She is tough, charismatic, and smart. She knows how to work a room and get people to donate to a good cause, even if that is stripping. After reading this story I could not get the picture of Richard Gere climbing up the fire escape to Julia Robert’s character flowers. What is amazing is he is scared of heights, but for love, he would climb even higher to get to the woman he loves. Lawrence and Mia’s relationship is a lot like that. It is a risk for both of them, but it is worth it. You will want to stay up all night to finish this story. Once you start reading you will be hooked and you will not want to stop reading for a minute! This story will make your heart flutter, your soul soar, and the hopeless romantic in you sigh! I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
