Skye Evans is a former stripper, trying to live a "good" life teaching dance to kids. She also hates rich people. Really hates them.

Charlie Ward is rich. He's twenty-nine, and caught between partying and growing up enough to have a relationship with someone besides his best friend.

When Charlie finds Skye crashing a party at the exclusive country club he owns, he's captivated by her long, beautiful dancer's legs. He takes her on a private tour of the pool, where they discover perfect chemistry.

Unfortunately for these two lonely lovers, Skye still hates rich people, and Charlie's still rich.

Charlie and Skye fit together so well when they're naked, but they must find creative ways to get over their differences and let themselves love.

Amazing! Wonderful. NOT your normal romance book at all! But in a totally awesome way. Two To Tango is a wonderful, raw, amazing story. It’s got lots of twist and the characters have depth but also with an amazing history. This makes the story a bit odd but, in an amazing way.

Skye is trying so hard to be a good girl. She’s not been in the past with a history of drugs and stripping. She’s a dancer but didn’t really want to be that kind of dancer. Now she’s teaching dance to kids and really trying to make ends meat and life a proper life. Somehow one thing after another happens and everything comes crashing down on her.

Charlie is a fixer. Not the kind of fixer you see on TV (Scandal anyone?) But he can fix problems by looking out of the box to find the solution. Locked out and a credit card isn’t working…..use a spatula. That make sense right? To Charlie no problem can’t be fixed no matter what. 

Skye might put this to the test. She has a great sense of morals and she knows right from wrong. But she also has a pattern and not great parents. Her dad cheated on his “real” family with her mom who is a prostitute. This wasn’t all bad since her dad was there with them a couple nights a week to eat dinner and hang out. He took care of her and her mom. He said he’d always make sure they were taken care of. Skye’s father dies when she is young and even though that was terrible her mom didn’t worry too much she knew she’d be in the will. He always said he’d protect them. Well it didn’t happen quite that way and her mom used what little money they had for drugs. They had to move into something cheaper and she went through husband after husband. Not a great ending to Skye’s childhood. Knowing she is the product of a prostitute puts her morality on the back burner when it comes to doing what she has to… survive.

Charlie is going to need to be patient and kind. Extremely understanding and have enough fight for them both. Skye is going to have to trust and let go of her past. Finally let someone help her, help her become the person she is supposed to be. Can she? Will she trust & confide in Charlie?

Charlie has his own family issues too. With his mother’s death and his father’s constant cheating on his step-mom, who isn’t completely awful, and the family business he’s not sure he wants to be apart of…..he’s got his own hands full. 

Will Charlie be able to fix his own life? Will he come to terms with his mom’s death and have an honest discussion with his dad about his future? 

Again, this was such an amazing story. Great beginning. Great ending. Amazing story in between. Mimi Strong I’m now a HUGE fan of yours!!! You’re amazing!

I've always had a lot of sides. Sometimes I'm vulnerable, and sometimes I go after what I want without a single doubt.

My favorite person is my husband. If I can crack him up and see his eyes crinkle at the corners, my day is made. In fact, I love making everyone around me laugh.

I've always enjoyed empowering stories about kick-butt women who don't hold back and the awesome men who are smart enough to love them. Now that I'm writing these stories, I couldn't be happier. I hope you enjoy them too!

Note: I also have a family-friendly pen name, (DALYA MOON), where you'll find MG and YA books, from fantasy to contemporary romance.
