Bare Assets by M.L. Stephens Review

Bare Assets by M.L. Stephens
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 Thoughts:
I received an ARC copy of this for an honest review.
This book will appeal to anyone looking for a unique storyline with tons of romance & mystery. 
I give this book 4 out 5 stars.
While I enjoyed the book a lot I found there was a little too much mystery and the beginning was a tad too slow.  
After the first couple of chapters I became invested in the story. I really enjoyed the Author's writing style. There were barely any editing errors and the characters personalities were great! Dean is said to be a player, but really he is not like everyone assumes. He is caring, compassionate, and protective. Angela is a strong young woman. She works hard and is consumed by her business. Together they instantly become sexually attracted to one another. The sexy scenes are HOTT! The way the worship each others bodies is sexy as hell.
There was a slight struggle in Dean and Angela's relationship though. At the same time they meet, Angela's ex shows up at her house and refuses to leave. He is very protective and kind of charming. The way M.L. makes him and Dean interact is great. I found myself smiling thinking.... WTH is Angela thinking having both these men in her house at the same time!
This book had mystery, romance, suspense, heartbreak, and sexy time!
Definitely worth the read.
