Blurb: At the Under the Table host club, Valentine’s Day means one thing: cash. Neglected housewives, newly ex-girlfriends, and lovelorn thirtysomethings pay for the attention of handsome men. Shy bartender Jem has always wanted to be a host, and when the club’s owner, Miss Rye, accepts a contract from a MensLove Convention, Jem volunteers to flirt and make out with another host for the ladies’ entertainment. Bailey, an older man who’s had his eye on Jem, convinces Miss Rye to let him be Jem’s partner, and everyone gets more than they expected—especially Jem and Bailey.

Review: This is a pretty damn good book as well. I loved how the author incorporated the character’s backgrounds, feelings, and surroundings into how things turned out. I found it so adorable how the characters volunteered into something and ended up closer than ever before. The book was downright amazing to me. Showed me that no matter what, no matter how bad, thing should always work out.
I found myself siding with both Jem and Bailey through it all. I found the characters very three-dimensional, the story solid, and the plot downright great. It made me wanna learn more and more about Jem and Bailey. I hope Raine plans to write more about Jem and Bailey. They are a rather interesting couple.
