S.E.X. Review~ Strip Search by Morticia Knight

A sexy stripper attempts to escape his dangerously obsessed boss while searching for his missing younger brother.
Stripping used to be fun, lucrative and a place for Dakota to practice for his professional dancing career. But the owner of Glitter Boys wants Dakota for himself and will stop at nothing to possess him. When his thirteen-year-old brother runs away from home to escape their abusive father, Dakota is determined to find him before something awful happens to him on the streets.
Patrol officer Reed hasn’t been attracted to a man in a very long time, but when he’s called to an assault in progress at the LGBTQ teen shelter, a young man approaches him, begging for help in finding his missing brother. An instant spark occurs, but he pushes it away. When the same man is attacked outside a strip club later that night, he discovers the desire is mutual.
As the two men learn more about each other and become closer, the specter of his obsessed ex-boss remains. In addition to that, Dakota has to fight the system to gain guardianship of his brother and keep him out of foster care. Dakota doesn’t know if the hunky cop he’s fallen so hard for can handle a relationship with an ex-stripper struggling to raise a teenager. But, will Reed be able to give up dating women for good and dedicate himself to their new family?
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes of sexual intimidation, scenes of mild physical assault and threats of sexual violence.

Book 7 in the Sin City Uniform series by Morticia Knight was a nice addition to the series and can be read as a standalone.

Reed and Dakota found friendship and chemistry under the sin city lights in Strip SearchMs. Knight delivered a sweet tale tinged with a bit of angst as stripper Dakota attempted to flee his over-bearing and nefarious boss, all the while attempting to find his run away brother. Dakota was sassy and a spitfire as the events of his life unraveled at his feet.

Ms. Knight added the element of bisexuality to Strip Search in Reed’s character. (A once married man) - a police officer with a teenage daughter, Reed internally questioned his sexuality - attracted to both men and women. In Dakota, Reed encountered friendship, love, and relationship.

Reed’s explanation of his attraction to both sexes was well-written, but I felt a bit rushed~ almost as an afterthought that needed to be written into the story to appease readers. Having said that, I always enjoy a Morticia Knight book and Strip Search did not disappoint.

Reed’s sexual exploration, Dakota’s gentle hand and sweet secondary characters in Donny and Keli, all added to the books appeal.
