Ace and Gabe seem like really good characters. There is clearly more to both of them than stripping and sex. However, that is pretty much all that happens. The book would hint that more was coming, but then they would end up having sex instead. Maybe if they had actually talked (more than "hey, you're hot!") and the subplots had gotten started, I would have liked this book. But I'm about 50% through, and there is nothing going on.
I didn't get very far. The prose is not bad, a little tedious but not bad, but I stopped reading at the second direct contradiction in story action. If the author/editor can't be bothered to check these things, I can't be bothered to continue reading.
There are series with this general theme that are better researched, better written, and better edited.
Gabriel deciding to become a stripper because some old lady thought he was hot (he wasn't "presented an opportunity to strip" like the synopsis said) was stupid. He didn't even know how to dance, which is pretty much what stripping is. Then he was offered something much better at his old job, but turned it down because he didn't want to do that anymore. Well then, why not try something else? Was he qualified to do anything else? Had he even tried? Honestly, I felt like this was a love story of 2 losers getting together because their lives stunk and they didn't have sense enough to figure out anything else to do. The sex was boring and the "romance" wasn't believable. Made me remember that though I'm a fan, this author really is hit or miss.
I enjoyed the read but did not connect with Ace or Gabriel. Ace is rich and spoiled. He does whatever suits his mood, and that includes having sex with a different person every night. His only consistency is never twice. Gabriel is floating through life with no goals and playing video games. I realize he does not have much money, but he could have aspirations and plans for more. The story got interesting when Ace had to face reality and grow up.
