Dressing up as a high-priced hooker is so far out of Stephanie Grant's comfort zone, she is shaking, however, she feels she has no other choice. Finding her sister Tina is much more important than pride or modesty.
The bayou is Jake Broussard's escape from the world. His grandmother's house on the river gives him solace, a place to forget how much it still hurts when he thinks of Becky.
Chez Sophia's is classy and beautiful, and Stephanie's only real lead to finding Tina. Still, nothing can mask what is really happening on the third floor. She is completely out of her element, which is only going to lead to trouble unless Jake steps in to help. He would really like to walk away and forget ever meeting Stephanie, yet every time he tries, it feels like his heart is being crushed. He cannot love another woman. He will not. It hurts way too much. Only, this thing between them is getting harder and harder to ignore.
Hit the gas and slam on the brakes seems to be Stephanie's modus operandi, at least until Jake urges her to open up. She becomes a completely different woman when she drops her steely control, which transforms her character from prudish and prim to amazingly sensual and honest. Jake needs to follow her lead when it comes to self awareness, and with Stephanie's help, he may eventually get there. He is a hero to the core, one I would love to see more of.
