Dani is a wallflower and best friend to Carter; she also happens to run the finance side of his business. Dani has been in love with Carter for years, but she is nothing like the glam queens that Carter usually dates. She feels Carter will never notice her.
Carter loves Dani like a sister, not just a best friend. He hires her to be his finance person, not just because of their friendship, but because she is very good at what she does and he knows he can trust her.
When Carter forces Dani to participate in a company health challenge, she is none too happy. And when she accidentally signs up for a strip aerobics class, she hopes the floor will swallow her, at first that is. As time goes on, the class begins to give Dani the confidence and poise she feels she has always lacked, and when Carter suddenly takes notice, she is more than thrilled. However, none of Carter’s relationships have lasted past a few months, and in spite of the instant attraction he feels for Dani after her transformation, he is afraid to trust his feelings. Only time will tell if he can get past his hang-ups.
Challenging Carter is a sensual feast for the reader. It is full of hot spicy sex, strong caring, and continual innuendos that give the sexual tension a bit of extra sizzle. Carter and Dani are very convincing as both caring friends and lovers. While I read the story, I could not help wondering how these two had not gotten together before. While I have never heard of strip aerobics, I think that if it is a figment of the author’s imagination, it is a very clever one! Fun, sexy, and exciting, Challenging Carter is well worth reading!
