Title: Nailing His Target
She’s ready to unleash her wild side, granny panties and all.
Serial monogamist Emma Donegan has never had a one-night-stand—and she’s definitely never propositioned a smokin’-hot guy while wearing decidedly unattractive lingerie. But when she sees the sexy cop stripper at a friend’s bachelorette party, she resolves to make her most risqué fantasies come true.
Playing the part of a stripper is way out of private detective Shane Madison’s comfort zone, but the future of his business hangs on this one case. Too bad the incriminating evidence leads right to the irresistible brunette who keeps slipping tens into his G-string. Shane’s had a few too many career mishaps, and he’s almost positive he’s on the verge of another. Because the one woman he can’t stay away from is the same woman making it so hard for him to remember his priorities.

A cute and funny short that is highly character driven, we meet Emma, best friend of the bride to be out on her hen night. The girls are drinking, all but Emma, and waiting for the male strippers to come out. A predictable show with the “working man village people” lineup – fireman, cop, biker – you get the drift. But the cop just happens to be an undercover PI, and former cop, Shane. He zeros in on Emma, who gets a handful, and more from him.
When Shane and Emma meet again leaving the club, their sexual tension is off the chain: funny because Shane believes Emma is a woman he has been hired to investigate, the target has been said to be a Madam with a stable of gigolos. There were several points here when I completely couldn’t believe that Shane could be a cop with the lack of sense and the huge mistakes in his conclusions: but all of these just made the story cuter.
When the two connect and the sexual tension is sated, the action is sexy and steamy and no one wants to have just one of those moments. From insta-attraction to couplehood in this story was cleverly plotted with dialogue that was both clever and funny, with enough mistaken conclusions to keep readers laughing.
