Book Review: Bare Assets

** Disclaimer: I received a free advance reader e-copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. **



Book: Bare Assets
Author: M.L. Stephens
Genre: Adult Contemporary Romance
Release Date: August 5, 2013

Synopsis:
     With nothing but shattered dreams and a busted heart to fuel the way, Angela Fletcher drove out of Arkansas and never looked back.
     Six years later, the new and improved version of the girl she used to be steered clear of romance, love and late night promises. The only pillow talk Angela engaged in these days, was making sure the person on the other pillow knew to lose her number as soon as he left the bed. She only had room for one love in her life and that was Bare Assets, the gentleman's club she poured her heart and soul into.
      Dean Murray was the devil in disguise and had left behind enough broken hearted women to populate a small country. Angela would know. She was an expert markswoman who was skillfully self-trained at shooting down the good, the bad and the ugly of all masculine targets. After all, as the owner of the most successful strip club in Dallas, Texas, it was her business to know men.
     Just as she begins to fall for Dean's silky words and passionate ways, her past and present unexpectedly collide and a meticulously planned future turns into unpredictable chaos. Is the smooth talking, denim wearing devil responsible for the chaos? Or have the secrets she left buried in Arkansas, coming back to haunt her?

My Review:
     I have been a fan of M.L. Stephens since I first read Love You More. When I was given the opportunity to read Bare Assets before release, I jumped on it. And I am glad I did. It is AMAZING. M.L. writing outside her comfort zone was a major success! This is my favorite book by her (thus far). This book was so good that I had to finish it in one sitting. This book had me smiling, angry, and gasping throughout. The characters were well written and it was easy to understand their stories and "bond" with them. The twists and turns in the plot were unpredictable through the entire book. The sexy scenes were sensational and tantalizing. As usual, M.L. distracted me from all that I should be doing and got me tangled up in others' lives. I encourage everyone to read this book and get caught up in the world of Bare Assets!

About the Author:

I'm always clicking away at the keyboard, but when I'm not, my family, two dogs, and a very peculiar cat keep me on my toes! There's never a boring moment at my desk! Besides my obvious love for coffee and all things caffeinated, I love to travel. The occasional tourist stop is fun, but I'm a back road kind of gal. Take me off the beaten path. I want to meet the ordinary people behind the culture. My crazy family includes a husband, four kids, two grandbabies, two dogs and a cat. That's right. Life is totally insane, and so I write. Speaking of writing, I've been spinning stories around the campfire since I can remember. Poetry was second nature and as a teen and young adult, short stories were constantly being penned. I'm an avid reader who loves almost all genres. Let's face it! A good read is a good read, regardless of whether it takes place in the future, the present, the past or with ghosts.
