Release Launch: Taking Jana by Rissa Brahm


It’s her turn to drive.
Men take from Jana. 

Her dad and brother: money. 
Stage-side gawkers: her dignity. 
Still, she finished nursing school, won a spot in Manhattan’s top ER—thanks to no man. 
But when her dad’s business and heart fails, ever-loyal Jana Park must return to the stripper’s pole. 
Now even her boss’s chauffeur ogles her in the rearview. Faux-kindness—and irrefutable heat—aside, she glares back.
Because screw ’em all.

Chauffeur Antonio Ruiz is done with his cheating wife, the city, the almighty buck. His seaside home in Mexico calls. One last gig for his biggest client, the city’s strip club king, then he’s out. 
Except that the sharp, exotic, petite powerhouse of a woman he’s been hired to drive—day in-day out, glaring at him with those deep, solemn eyes—takes him over. If he could pierce her shield of doubt, he’d bring her home, far from this hell.
But, no. Jana’s got to take the wheel and drive. 

Away from her family’s abuse, her boss’s clutches…and toward Antonio’s true brand of love.
The road’s rocky. Will they make it to paradise? 

Or will it all go south… in the city.

Fuck him…and fuck me!
                Jana got into the back seat where she intended to stay. For good. She was mortified and angry at the rejection…
                …and at her life up to the rejection.
                Fucking alcohol slowing her processes and her goddamn prudence! Her sound judgment!
                She needed to be alone. To reflect and to decide what the hell she was doing and going to do about everything. Her lost pride and her out-of-left-field feelings or neediness, or whatever the hell that was back there. And yes, what to do about her family and her absolutely fucked future. Yeah, the entire merry go round of fucked.
                She looked back over her shoulder. He was coming to the car now. God she wanted the divider up so goddamn bad. But of course, she couldn’t have it without getting sick everywhere. So as he reached for his door handle she found her sunglasses, shoved them on, stuffed the ear buds in her ears—yes, his fucking ear buds, ugh!—and readied herself for complete separation. Church and state, client and goddamn chauffeur, her floundering soul and the never-ending ocean of shit her soul was drowning in.
She got to the club without a single word to Antonio and decided then that she’d not need him for the next few days. She wouldn’t be going to visit her father, not until Thursday, after she got the money from Johnnie at the theater and from her bank. And she could take a cab to the club from the studio each night or goddamn walk.
She headed to the entrance of The Wet Spot and turned just before going through the doors. Antonio rolled down his window on cue.

 “No need to bring me back to the studio tonight. And actually I won’t need you until Thursday morning, nine AM.” And she continued into the club.

Rissa Brahm Bio:

Contemporary romance writer Rissa Brahm grew up in New York and has since lived in all four corners of the United States, and beyond. The beautiful paradise of Puerto Vallarta, Mexico—the core setting of her hot & heartfelt debut series, Paradise South—is Rissa’s most recent and beloved home.
After two decades of working in the rigid—and sometimes blurry—world of finance, she's taken hold of her truest dream, writing hot and heartfelt stories full time.
When not chained-by-choice to her MacBook, she is embarking on outdoor adventures with her husband and little girl, laughing to tears with a good rom com, eating amazing Indian food with something chocolate for dessert; reading good, hot scorchers in bed; biking, long walks, and yoga; zoning out to killer music from across the decades and the globe; and getting lost only to discover a new exciting route home again.
