REVIEW – STRIPPED BARE by HEIDI MCLAUGHLIN
My Rating – 5 Stars
Oh I am completely in love with this book. For me this was a Pretty Woman story but with some twists and ones that make this book unique on its own.
Macey is barely making ends meet resorting to stripping and waiting tables to provide for herself and her daughter Morgan. She finds herself in Vegas attempting to make some quick money and runs into Finn a blast from her past who also happens to be a super rich wealthy casino owner.
Finn has a proposition for her, one that could help with some of her financial woes.
Finn was a little bit of an ass I will say but it was so fitting for his character as you find out about his life. As the story goes on his douchebag persona is slowly chipped away by Macey. Macey is tough, determined, focused and willing to do what it takes to provide for Morgan. I absolutely loved her and she didn’t back down from Finn nor did she put up with his mood swings.
I loved their interaction, the banter back and forth between the two. Macey certainly challenged Finn at every turn. The sex is off the charts hawt and the chemistry between the two will have you fanning yourself. As their time comes to end, my heart was racing a bit wondering whether he would keep her or let her walk away. Some surprises are revealed that will leave you with some anxiety, some drama unfolds that will have you cursing and wanting to slap someone and there are some moments that will make your heart melt.
I absolutely loved this book and would definitely recommend to those that are looking for a love story with some elements of hotness, drama, surprises and swoon.
