Silent Partner by Renee Vincent
Grayson Anders and Chloe LaRoche's book
By Renee Vincent
Grayson Anders has it all. He's the co-owner of a happening nightclub in downtown Boston, he's wealthy, and women practically throw themselves at his feet the moment he steps on the dance floor. But profiting from these obvious benefits is not his desire. His passion is dancing and he wants nothing more than to find the perfect dance partner.
Chloe LaRoche is a talented artist, but a failing entrepreneur. Her once thriving studio is now on the brink of foreclosure and unless she paints the next Van Gogh Starry Night, she'll have to cut her losses and say goodbye to her quaint little gallery. Fearing her career is at an end, she drags herself to the local hotspot, determined to drown her worries in the bottom of a shot glass. At least that was the plan...until she lays eyes on a wickedly sexy, swarthy dancer in the club-Grayson Anders. Unable to resist, Chloe finds herself in Grayson's arms, indulging on a passionate, out-of-control, one night stand. And when both awaken the next morning, they are consumed with inspiration. Grayson finds his perfect dance partner and Chloe finally finds her muse. But will her secret destroy both their dreams?
Silent Partner was one of the novels in an eight ebook bundle deal for only .99, Unfortgettable Heroes.
What a great concept for a story Silent Partner was. I have to admit that when I started reading it I was thinking something was going to be a bit different about the Chloe since she seemed to be pretty silent for a heroine. The reader is treated to a lot of what Chloe is thinking but not much in the way of verbal. Of course when we first meet Chloe, it is at a night club where the music is blasting and talking is usually at a minimum anyways.
Grayson is sexy. He completely knows he owns the floor with his dance moves and all the women there want him. It was a toss up between whether he was super confident or completely arrogant. When he starts to gyrate and dance with Chloe, I could picture the pair of them right in front of my eyes.
When Grayson leads Chloe to his apartment above the night club, it was a very sexy read. I loved that he carried the shot glasses in his hands and all the descriptions that were used to get them to the bedroom. Hot!
Without adding too many spoilers, Grayson and Chloe don't immediately become a couple. Grayson has to fix how he wronged Chloe and he did an amazing job. I found Silent Partner a quick and easy read.
