They don’t call it the Strip for nothing. . .

In this sinfully sexy Las Vegas romance from bestselling author Heidi McLaughlin, a man who has it all reunites with a woman who takes it all off.

Living in Sin City, Finn McCormick is no stranger to one-night stands, but the last person he expects to find losing big on the casino floor is a former high school fling. Even though Macey Webster’s clearly down on her luck, she’s still a knockout, and she’s dressed like a stripper—because she is one. Drunk off an unfamiliar cocktail of lust, pity, and compassion, Finn offers to pay Macey’s debts if she cuddles up to him around town . . . and does whatever he wants between the sheets.

Macey came to Vegas for one reason only: money. She’s got a young daughter to support, and the tips really are bigger in Vegas. But when she blows her earnings on blackjack, her guardian angel is the rich boy who once stole her heart and never called her back. Although Macey would love to turn the tables on Finn, she can’t afford to refuse his proposition—and soon she’s enjoying herself much more than she cares to admit. Macey’s used to baring her flesh, but baring her soul will take far more courage.

4 Stars

Stripped Bare initially reminded me a lot of the movie, Pretty Woman.  However, as the characters (or maybe just the author) found their groove within each other’s lives became it’s own plot and it was awesome.

Macey is a young single parent who is struggling to do better for herself and her daughter. When she hears that there are financial opportunities for strippers in Las Vegas, she decides to leave for a week.

Nothing turns out as she expects. Especially running into Finn, a man very much tied to her past and possibly her future.  And when he purposes a deal that will set her up, there is no way she can refuse him.

The storyline unfolds as you can imagine – Finn and Macey share unbelievable chemistry and their lust for one another leaves them desperate for each other.  But their secrets and trust issues make it difficult for them to truly move forwards even though they both crave a future with the other.

It’s an entertaining and uphill battle for them to figure things out but it was highly enjoyable ride.  So my recommendation would be to check Stripped Bare out!
