Summary taken from Goodreads:

Abby Gillis is used to being called a promiscuous, uneducated whore. It’s all in a day’s work when you’re a stripper. Since her job allows her to support her siblings, 24-year-old Abby takes it all off in stride. She’s never had trouble keeping men at arm’s length – until she meets ER physician Chris Reneau, who is sexy, sweet and interested in more than what’s beneath her clothes. As their relationship unfolds, Abby becomes increasingly aware of the desire building in her for the first time, and of her yearning to be wanted by the one man who truly sees all of her.

Commitment-averse Chris finds himself in uncharted territory. He wants Abby, that’s clear, but he can’t accept not having all of her. As the distance between them erodes, he tries to convince Abby to give up stripping for a chance at something real. 

As the two of them get closer, Abby realizes that truly baring it all has nothing to do with her body. Chris makes her feel more exposed than she ever has, and she has to grapple with what’s left when her notions about herself and those around her are stripped away, leaving only the naked truth.

Review:

This book was kind of hot. Now, the copy that I received was a little jumbled. I’m not sure if that is how it is for everyone, it may have been the review copies. Either way I did notice that it jumped around quite a bit. There was also no indication of when it was changing scenes or points of views and it threw me off a bit. However, I’ve never read a stripper story and I have to admit that I did enjoy it. I found it a little far fetched the whole doctor and a stripper thing, but I guess weirder things could happen. Sometimes I thought that Abby needed to wake up and that someone needed to slap her mother (although that would be frowned upon considering her condition). I also admit that I really liked how Abby and Chris meet. It was an enjoyable read although sometimes the writing style and structure really got to me.

Good:

Chris--He seems like a pretty stand up guy.

Bad: 

The writing structure and writing style.

Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):

Overall it was enjoyable. Although it was difficult to get past the writing once I could the story really came together. 

Viewer Type Recommendation:

If you are a lover of a goo stripper New Adult romance than this is for you.
