I took my place right by the pole, and even though the room was nearly pitch black, I could feel several people watching me. When the music started and the lights came on over the stage, I placed one hand on the pole and circled it, making eye contact with as many of the men in the front as I could. I made it all the way around and then bucked my hips into the cold metal, sliding up and down a few times before spinning around it again.

I had a few tricks in my arsenal, but I wanted to save those for a little later on in the song. Still gripping the pole, I walked halfway around so my back was to the crowd. There were loud catcalls and wolf whistles when I started shaking my hips to the beat of the music. They got even louder as I hooked my left leg around the pole and spun in quick circles until my ass was on the ground and the pole was between my legs. Using my hands as leverage, I planted my feet and lifted my hips, thrusting against the shiny object seductively.

Men from the tables in the back of the room rose from their seats and were closing in on the stage area. Figuring it was now or never, I got to my feet and shimmied around again. Facing away from the audience, I placed my hands high on the pole and jumped up, straddling it and squeezing my thighs together to hold me in place. Arching my back, I released my hands and used my stomach muscles to support me as I flashed some cleavage at the patrons. After a few seconds of holding the position and nearly falling out of my top, I straightened up and slid my way down the pole, shaking my ass and earning more whistles.

When I spun around, my eyes met with Ryan’s for a brief moment. I couldn’t help but smirk at him and toss my hair over my shoulder as I continued to dance. Was it possible that god-like creature wanted me? The mere thought of it turned me on more than anything ever had.

I made a full circle on the pole when I saw him waving a hundred dollar bill around, trying to get me to come over. Feeling overly confident and wanting to fuck with him a bit, I sauntered over and shimmied my hips just inches from his face. His eyes were locked on my covered pussy, and I could have sworn I saw him lick his lips. An image of him between my legs flashed through my mind, and I felt myself getting damp with arousal. Shaking my head slightly to clear it, I continued with my dance.

Every time Ryan reached up with the money, I backed away so he couldn’t touch me. He wasn’t supposed to touch me anyway. At least…I didn’t think he was. None of the customers were ever allowed to touch the dancers according to what I’d been told. Carlo had said that Ryan ran the club, though, so I wondered if that meant he was an exception and could do what he wanted. That thought both thrilled and terrified me.

Still, I shook my head with a smirk on my face and sunk down to my hands and knees. His eyes were focused on my tits, which were nearly bursting out of my bikini top as I began to make my way toward him, so without him even noticing, I pulled the money from his hand with my teeth.

“Thanks,” I winked as I rose to my feet and headed back to the pole to finish the song. I could feel his eyes boring into me until the lights went out and I collected my tips.

My Personal Review

Oh where to start with this hot little number. Bee and Jo have put one steamy, sexy, erotic novella together here. I read this in about an hour and a half, that was with my 18 year old jabbering away too lol. I am so in love with Siena aka as Trixie. This girl is strong and has been through a lot, running from abuse, changing where she lives so many times I can’t even imagine what that must be like and yet she is strong through it all. She has a plan though and Cherries is going to help her get where she is going.

Then there is Ryan, sex on a walking stick alpha male is what he is. All the goods in all the right places oh man hello he can keep an eye on me any time. But Trixie see’s something and learns something and it changes everything. At least on the outside. You can’t hide what you want from your heart or your mind though. But can there ever be with someone like him.

And of course then there is the ever lovable Tony – okay I am being VERY sarcastic there. This whiny putz needs more than a butt kicking or a shot to the leg. I wouldn’t mind kicking his butt. What man in his right mind treats a woman like crap. What man in his right mind barters his woman for something else. This man wants all the power and doesn’t want to work for it. I really hate men like him.

This story has sex, and chemistry, and sex, and bad guys, and sex, a strip club, and sex and oh sex. But don’t get me wrong, it is not all about sex, on the contrary there is a real story here, and it builds up to a great moment, a super great moment. One that will suck you in and have you feeling the moments with them.

Oh yeah but wait – there is a cliff hanger – leave it to Bee & Jo to leave me hanging to see what happens next – thanks ladies.

I am giving Owned 5 steaming hot stars!!!!!!
