A man who has it all reunites with a woman who takes it all off in a Las Vegas romance from the bestselling author of Forever My Girl, now a major motion picture!
They don’t call it the Strip for nothing. . . .
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.

Includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.
The first book in McLaughlin's (Home Run) new series, an amusing retake of Pretty Woman, entertains with blistering physical desire and witty banter amid high-stakes personal conflicts. Macey Webster is a struggling single mom in Spokane, Wash., and supporting her 10-year-old daughter, Morgan, is her utmost responsibility. She hopes to earn much-needed funds through an arduous week of stripping in Vegas and a few rounds at the blackjack table, but she loses all her earnings on one bad turn of the cards. Wealthy casino owner Finn McCormick, vaguely recalling that they were once lovers, offers her $30,000 if she'll be his public date and private mistress for a week. Macey reluctantly agrees, as going home broke is not an option. Finn, who mystified himself by making the proposition, soon has to admit that their kinky lovemaking has an underpinning of romantic connection. But there are stumbling blocks to moving forward: Finn thinks Morgan is Macey's boyfriend back in Spokane, and Macey does not correct him, fearing what will happen if Finn realizes Morgan is his daughter. The conflicted hero and unsinkable heroine make a great pair in this sexy contemporary with a heart of gold.

This story sucked me in
Stripped Bare was definitely hot! I could not wait to get my hands on this book, and I was not disappointed. Heidi has a way of telling a story that draws the reader in from the first page and doesn't let go until the last, and Finn and Macey's story was one of those. Macey is trying to make end last meet by working two jobs in order to support herself and her daughter, one of which is as a stripper. Finn is a successful hotel and casino owner in Vegas, which is where they run into each other ten years after high school. I loved everything about this book, and I can't wait for more in the series.
Petty Woman with a Twist - Fabulous Story - Must Read!
If this is your first Heidi McLaughlin book than you will not be disappointed. With this book you just need to throw out all your preconceived notions and just enjoy all the twists and turns.
This book has a very "Pretty Woman" vibe but it is so much more. When what can only be described as fate brings Macey & Finn together it starts a fun game of "pretend" that will leave you wondering, swooning and hoping this "pretend" will turn into something more. This book had the perfect balance of suspense and swoon worthy moments that made me not want to put this book down.
Definitely don't miss out on this amazing story!
